The first feature film ever co-written by artificial intelligence software is in the can — and looking for more than $22,000 in crowd-funding cash to help with the release.

Billed as "the scariest and creepiest horror film out there," the film, "Impossible Things," was reportedly produced in part by an "augmented intelligence software tool" that analyzes audience response to help writers give horror fans exactly what they want, EW.com reports. 

The AI program also helped target the audience by packing a trailer with key scenes and working out plot twists, the outlet reports.

The plot involves a mother, grieving the death of her young daughter, who goes crazy with some supernatural influences, the outlet reports.

"A little over 85 percent of movies made today don’t make a profit in box office, which is the result of a mismatch between the movies being produced and audiences’ tastes," Greenlight Essentials Jack Zhang says in a news release about the independent project, EW.com reports.

"We used [AI] to generate the premise and the key plot points of the film. Before a single word was written, our AI told us that if we wanted to match audience taste, we needed to make a horror film that featured both ghost and family relationships, and that a piano scene and a bathtub scene would need to be used in the movie trailer to increase the likelihood that our target audience would like it."

Zang is looking for $22,843 on Kickstarter to get the project released; a little over $2,000 was raised by Tuesday night.
