Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A Duluth native needs your help in creating an eco-horror film based in Minnesota.

Jim Ojala

Ojala, creator of "Strange Nature' started a Kick Starter campaign last month in hopes of raising more funds for the film.

Ojala, who has been working on the film for about ten years, wants to keep the movie in Minnesota.

His inspiration for the film came from mutant frogs which have been found in the state since the 1960s.

"We kind of take it where, how it is in real life. Where a lot of people didn't really care because it's a bunch of frogs, who cares? At what point do people care when your pet starts birthing monstrosities on up to the more dangerous animals in the wilderness of the Midwest and potentially on up to human fetuses," said Ojala.

The kick starter campaign will end in seven days.
So far they have raised more than $13,000, but are still far from their goal of $85,000.
