Horror in Hawaii

Check out the new film "Horror in Hawaii" one of the producers Howard Wexler is reading our book and considering it for a future movie.

On the top of Mauna Kea, on the Big Island of Hawaii, some of the worlds most important research is being done, looking into the vastness of space, exploring the past as well as the future.

A small, invasive frog may signal the end of human habitation on this Island, unless a way is found to stop its reproduction.

HORROR IN HAWAII, a 90 minute feature film, will explore the social and ethic ramifications of this phenomena.

A mixture of fact and fiction, tragedy and comedy, we explore the Islands natural beauty, featuring likable and realistic characters, local attractions and food, nightlife and unique residences.

Another side of the coqui onslaught influences locals and tourists alike, forcing some to fend for themselves, when the usual resources fall short.

Filmed entirely in the Hawaiian Islands, and possibly the Governor’s office in Honolulu.

Photographed in unity with the natural elements including rain, volcanic ash and harsh tropical sun.

The problem of an invasive species becoming a pest was due in part to mankind’s inability to harmonize with the natural world, and our story will entertain audiences with an exaggerated depiction of a possible future, as well as delivering a message of hope.

The film will use a computer generated coqui, appearing in several sizes, from life size to monster.

The Common Coquí or Coquí (Eleutherodactylus coqui) is a frog from Puerto Rico belonging to the Eleutherodactylus genus of the Leptodacthylidae family. The species is named for the loud sound (sometimes reaching as high as 100 dB at a distance of 0.5 m) the males make at night.

    Isn't that a bit dramatic? How about all the rest of the exotic species, like the agriculture products? I understand the sound can be annoying and it may affect the ecology of the communities, but hyperbole won't help your case.
