Stalk

My next film Stalk, directed for Horror House Media is the first film written specifically by my friend and writing partner Brantley J. Brown for their YouTube channel.

This is a fun film about a stalker played by Tyler Gallant who stalks a young lady Vanessa, played by Kara Schaaf, as she walks home alone from a party. This was such a blast to direct…and I am so grateful that my friend Richard Trejo jumped on board to be our Director of Photography. He brought on his friend Justin Chamberlain to help and the two of them were phenomenal.

Brantley designed the mask – which is creepy (can’t wait to show you all) – and did great blood effects on set. I was even grateful to my nephew Majd who came to hang out on set and help. He even did the slate for us! Thank you Majd.

I really this is a great follow up film to Soundbite, the first film I directed for Horror House and I really cannot wait to show you the final product. I am fully confidant that you will enjoy this film!

Soundbite on FearScale

Thank you FearScale for the awesome review of my film Soundbite.

This is amazing, they take a subject, hook them up to a heart monitor and check their heart rate while watching a film – in this case, the film was Soundbite.

Nightmarish Conjurings Reviews Soundbite

I want to start off by saying that we have received so many amazing reviews, especially from my cousin Daryl, who is a horror vlogger – he did a fun video review of the film. You can check that out here:  MrMeatHook

But yesterday – November 15, 2018 – we received an amazing review of Soundbite from the horror website Nightmarish Conjurings, hosted by Shannon McGrew. The review was written by Juliann Stipidis and it is by far one of the best reviews we have received. It was very thorough and complete and I want to thank Juliann and Shannon and Nightmarish Conjurings for taking the time to watch and review our fun 4 minute horror short!

When Hate Reigns (Inaugural Day)

Inaugural day.
The crowd gathers;
people clamor
as Hate steps up to the podium.

He is calm, collect.
The weather is cool, brisk.
The people are excited and alive from the commemoration.

Hate is poised over the calamity of noise
as onlookers stare up at Him in awe.
Tall, almost elegant with His grand gestures.
His voice thunders in everyone’s head.

He speaks:
“People! People! I am here today before you
as a symbol of a new beginning that is about to take place.
We are on the threshold of a new era,
an era free from the destruction of obscenity;
the infestation of affectivity.
At the forefront of this populace
I shall begin the absolution to freedom.”

And Hate smiled.
And the people cheered
for they had a leader who was brave.

But there was a dark cloud that loomed above – –
fat and swollen with rain – –
but the people didn’t care
for rain was good
it fed the ground, which nourished life
so it mattered none
that it was a murky mysterious rain.

And the rain fell,
and Hate smiled,
and the people cheered
for they had a leader
who provided for the people.

Then a mighty wind rose
and carried with it the spirit of transformation,
the embodiment of change.

The wind was good because it brought change –
change was good because it is fundamental
so it mattered none that the wind eroded the land
that the rain had cultivated.

And the wind blew,
and the rain fell,
and Hate smiled,
and the people cheered
for they had a leader who pioneered growth.

Then the land trembled
and it shook with the force
of a thousand secrets never revealed
and the rumbling of truth that none believed.

But it was good because it carried the knowledge of the beginning of time,
so it mattered none that time tumbled away under the roar of the soil.

And the Earth shook,
and the wind blew,
and the rain fell,
and Hate smiled,
and the people cheered
for they had a leader who promoted   the sovereignty of faith.

And Hate stood motionless at the pulpit.
The crowd trampled over one another
for a glimpse of His auspicious demeanor,
that flicker of something almost sinister in His eye,
which they knew meant that He was a man  of great power.

And Hate smiled
and the people cheered
for they had a leader who would lead them through a revolution –

And the Earth shook,
and the wind blew,
and the rain fell,
and Hate smiled;
but the people
the people quailed from this future
for it was different
it was unfamiliar.

And Hate stepped away from the platform
as the onlookers stared up in awe.
The silence echoed through the heart of each  spectator.
This was, indeed,
the commencement of a new instigation of life.
