In Pre-Production

Herbert West: Reanimator is an episodic production starring Zan Alda as the title character Herbert West and Jed Rowen in a supporting role as Dr. Halsley. More casting and production announcements coming soon. The series revolves around the various lore of H.P. Lovecraft with the tale of Herbert West at its center.

Dr. Herbert West pushes the limits of the science as he develops a medical miracle capable of bringing the dead back to life. Inspired by the short story and other works of H.P. Lovecraft.

We plan on using this crowdfund campaign to shoot the first four episodes  (of eight), then we will shop the product around to various networks, channels, and streaming services to secure long-term distribution of the first season (and hopefully more).

We have crowdfunded eight feature films and multiple other projects. Our movies have won more than 50 awards, played in dozens of festivals and received worldwide distribution on all major platforms as well as physical distribution in places like Walmart and Family Video. We have worked with two Academy Award winning actors and a bevy of well-known names and faces! Now is your chance to join the team at Koa Aloha Media and help us produce our next movie!

We are currently finishing post-production of the horror-thriller-mystery Amber Road with Robert LaSardo, Tom Sizemore, Vincent Ward, William McNamara, Elissa Dowling, Rachel Riley and  Vernon Wells.

We currently have multiple movies in worldwide distribution, including the multi-award winning movies THE ELECTRIC MAN (with Tom Sizemore, Eric Roberts, Vernon Wells) and 7TH REVELATION.  (IMPACT EVENT and JEKYLL AND HYDE) and two others which are now winning awards and making the festival circuit (FORGOTTEN LEGACY and A BARD FOR THE AGES). FORGOTTEN LEGACY had its world premiere at the famous TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

We have two additional releases scheduled for worldwide distribution – VIRUS OF THE UNDEAD and FORGOTTEN LEGACY.
