Thank you to Ryan T. Cusick for the amazing review of my film LOVE ME NOT. Even though you watched it three months later – that is the true beauty about the medium of film – is never too late to enjoy a good story.
On behalf of the cast and crew, we thank you for enjoying our film and writing about it!

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.

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
So my writing partner Brantley J Brown and I just finished our first script together. I had written the short film Del Obispo Road – a horror short – and Brantley helped me adapt it into a feature film script. Actor and producer Edward Coupland will star as the lead, Ryan.
When Ryan’s sister goes missing in 1985, he is plagued by the memory of someone – or something – that he felt was responsible for her disappearance. Twenty years later he still can’t forget that night and the weight of that memory begins to push him to madness. When he starts to see his sister again, Ryan starts to search for answers as to why his sister vanished, and if the dreams that haunt him are real.
This story is based on a terrifying event shared to me by Rochelle Robinson.
We did a great interview about this film and script on my podcast Mimosas With Michael. Enjoy!
