Louie the Dog Horror Movie Posters

I have a dog named Louie and he's pretty disdainful of human horror movies. He doesn't get what the big deal is about vampires (not scary OR sexy), werewolves (friends!), or skeletons (yahm!). So he's making horror movies for dogs now, about things that are REALLY scary, like BATHS and VACUUMS and THUNDER. Louie hired me to design his movie posters. Unfortunately he pays me in kibble, but other than that he's a great (decent) client!

Black And White (2014) 15mins

"Surviving a suprise sex party with your soul intact is tough. Welcome to the Black And White midnight party." - This is a nail-biting, brand new, Australian short that's just been released. ‘Black And White’ is a dark morality tale about a man that finds himself stuck at a sex party in the middle of nowhere. It’s about the horror of moral collapse and how we act when no one is watching. It's one of the most intense clips you'll watch all year.

YOU'RE NEXT

I produced a horror movie called YOU'RE NEXT. It comes out this weekend in the US, and in the rest of the world over the next few weeks. Critics even like it, which is pretty rare for a horror film these days. So if you like horror movies, go see it. If you don't like horror movies, go see it anyway and help support MeFi's own me.

Cult TV Times: Old-fashioned long-form journalism for those who love TV

About six months ago, a bunch of journalists (including myself) drunkenly decided we should stop moaning about the lack of good long-form writing in magazines about television and do something about it. Cult TV Times is the result. There you'll find both free content like Sir Mortimer Wheeler - Archeology's forgotten TV hero, and our very first official issue: CTVT #1: Mummy, Can Men Be Prime Ministers Too? - just £2 (about $3) for over 80 pages of content.

The Soul Never Sleeps

Chris Peters is a classically trained artist based in Los Angeles, with numerous collectors in the music and film industries. To complement his recent exhibition of new paintings at Paul Booth's Last Rites Gallery in New York City, Mr. Peters created this short experimental film "The Soul Never Sleeps". It was designed to evoke the same mood and atmosphere as the other 12 pieces, acting as the exhibition's "13th Painting." The original score was composed for the film by Michael Hebert, an Emmy award winner whose music can be heard in feature films, television and national broadcast commercials. [more inside]

The first episode is now up; the podcast feed is here. [more inside]

The River Caller

I've written and self-published a book. This is my first try, so I decided to go with Amazon Kindle self-publish. This is part 1 of a multi-volume work that I'm planning on publishing in the same manner. I've priced it as low as Amazon will allow (2.99). The River Caller is a story centering around a boy named George, who lives in Ogdensburg, New York, in the late 19th Century. It is primarily a story about life on the Saint Lawrence River, but there are things about George that are a little out of the ordinary. [more inside]

MicroHorror Audio

In a brand new venture, I'm hearkening back to the golden age of radio horror, when voices like Arch Oboler, Boris Karloff and Vincent Price ruled the airwaves. I've recorded two albums so far: MicroHorror, on which I read my own original short-short horror stories, and Legends of Horror, on which I read three classic stories by Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce and H.P. Lovecraft in all-new dramatic performances. Streaming is free from Bandcamp, and downloads are pay-what-you-like. Dim the lights, curl up in your favorite coffin and open your mind to horror.
