So Nick Carter -- you know, your favorite Backstreet Boy (unless you're Team Brian, like some of us) -- is making a horror movie.

An avid fan of the genre, the boy-bander has raised $107,837 (significantly more than his original $85,000 goal) on Indiegogo for his movie "Evil Blessings." Produced, co-written by, and starring Carter, the film tells the story of three friends who go hunting, only to discover that they're being hunted by a cursed family from the 1800s. Just think of it as "House of Carters" meets "The Hills Have Eyes," as Vulture so aptly suggests.

While it's hard to imagine the crooner raising the tension with blood and guts, Carter may just be a big enough horror geek to make it work. He lists "Aliens," "The Chernobyl Diaries," and "The Keep" as some of his favorite creepy films.

Whether "Evil Blessings" ends up being an embarrassing flop or an inventive addition to the genre, let's just hope Carter doesn't play a dancing mummy again. Seriously, though, it better be larger than life.
