Another Millennial Reviewer – LOVE ME NOT

Thank you Luke Barnes at Another Millennial Review for doing a small mini review of the film LOVE ME NOT on Twitter; written by Brantley J. Brown and which I directed for Horror House Media. http:// Love Me Not is a very strong horror film, highlighting obsession over love, and the fear and mania that comes with it. The film is complimented by a rich gothic aesthetic, and strong performances. Definitely one to watch out for. #horror #MovieReview https://t.co/SIhlnk5frA — Anothermillennialreviewer (@AnothermillennR) August 11, 2019

Ad Out Premieres

This week, the web series, AD OUT, I directed for Love Love Productions premiered on YouTube. It was an awesome and amazing experience - and nice to do something that wasn't horror. Although I love horror, I am glad I had the opportunity to show my audience that I can tell a story outside of my normal genre! Enjoy the first episode (1 of 4) on YouTube...and then subsequently the next three! And again, thank you for your continued support. And thank you to Troy Akin for the amazing opportunity.

iHorror Spotlight: Michael Coulombe

Thank you to Ryan T Cusick for the amazing interview for iHorror, taken during my recent trip to Texas Frightmare Weekend 2019 in Dallas, Texas. I attended Texas Frightmare Weekend last year in 2018 for the first time with my cousin Daryl (Mr. Meathook on Youtube) and the most amazing weekend. This year was no exception. I just meet the most amazing people at this convention - and this year it was an honor to sit down with Ryan at iHorror and talk about my projects. Check out the article here: iHorror Spotlight: Michael Coulombe Filmmaker @MichaelCoulombe Talks @horrorhousmedia and a much more with @iHorrorNews at @texasfrightmare! https://t.co/BGpXgGYXtd — iHorror.com (@iHorrorNews) June 10, 2019

Michael Coulombe on Horror Talk with Kristin

So not only was I able to direct the third season of Horror Talk with Kristin West...but I was able to be a guest on the show as well! Thank you to Horror News Network, a sponsor of the show, for posting my episode as well. The third season was recorded at the FANtastic Horror Film Festival in San Diego, CA, which by the way is a lovely festival - and which I had won second place at for my short film script The Beauty of Death. I am grateful to have been a part of this seasons line up and am thankful to Kristin West and my manager, Matt Chassin, for the opportunity.

An Actor Vlogs

On the set of AD Out, our actor Kory Getman, did a vlog about the experience of being on the set of the show. I think it's a fun vlog plus it gives you a different insight - so I thought I would share it. Plus my nephew Majd was instrumental in helping him film on set. https://youtu.be/u_Xio8V_kiU Also, the series AD Out, created by Troy Akin will be available soon!
Review: Love Me Not by Fearscale

Review: Love Me Not by Fearscale

Fearscale is one of my favorite review sites because they find a subject, connect them to a heart monitor and have them watch a horror film. They take those results and find how scary a movie is. I think it's fun and brilliant. So far they have reviewed SOUNDBITE and STALK, the first two films I directed for Horror House. Both of those films were about five minutes....but LOVE ME NOT is 11 minutes and we were wondering if we create something that could sustain fear for twice as long. I have to say - I think we did a great job. Check out the results here:  Fearscale reviews LOVE ME NOT
