Crowdfunding has become an ever-increasing element of creative projects over the last half decade, and with the continued success of the “direct to consumer/fan” approach, it was only a matter of time before a company emerged as the first fan-owned entertainment company in the world: the aptly-named Legion M. With a slate of unique genre-bending offerings such as Colossal, Mandy, and the just released Memory: The Origin of Alien documentary, David Baxter- the VP of Development for Legion M- took some time to speak to Horror News Network at New York Comic Con 2019 about the documentary and how his company is forging a new way of doing business in Hollywood.

If you also like Anne Hathaway and monsters, check out the teaser trailer for the film below:
The film is written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, a Spanish writer, actor, and director who has numerous horror and thriller projects on his resume (V/H/S Viral, Open Windows).
