Actor Bob Olin, who plays the DRIFTER, got a great write up that was a carried by USA TODAY! A nice mention of DRIFTER and even a quote by me! Swell! http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2014/04/20/spotlight-automotive-parts-specialist-actor-is-a-man-of-many-parts/7887117/
DRIFTER got a great review over at Smash or Trash Indie Filmmaking: http://smashortrashindiefilmmaking.com/?page_id=2818
Also very cool to get a bit of coverage about the Portland premiere and the limited edition DVD release:
Everyone is probably tired of hearing about DRIFTER over and over again. But fear not! I am determined to finish my next project this summer, so stay tuned for all the sci-fi horror weirdness!

The Oregon Premiere for DRIFTER is set for Friday, June 6 at 9:15 p.m. at the Northern Lights Theater Pub, 3893 Commercial Street SE in Salem.
Plenty of cast and crew will be in attendance so a Q&A will surely follow. This is a 21 and over show with beer, wine and food available!
The World Premiere of DRIFTER was held as the Friday Night Midnight Movie at Crypticon Seattle, May 23, 2014, and it was fantastic! We had a room full of folks and everyone seemed to really dig the flick. I had several people come up afterwards to chat about the movie and we gave away two posters. The rest of the convention was great as well and I'll be getting my traditional photo-filled trip diary together in the next week or so.
Looking forward to the Oregon Premiere for DRIFTER on Friday, June 6 at 9:15 p.m. at the Northern Lights Theater Pub, 3893 Commercial Street SE in Salem!

Here is John's original description: "Everyone has dreams they would like to go back and relive, but Paul actually did something about it. Sometimes, though, a dream can become a nightmare. Travel with Paul as he discovers the truth about the thin line that separates one from the other. Paul, our "hero," becomes so obsessed with a recurring dream-woman that he invents a dreams-recorder to cling more tightly to that other world. But something goes wrong...a mishap with the recorder leaves Paul stuck in the dreamworld, only able to leave by fighting his way to an "exit", the path which is controlled by the lord of nightmares.."

BLOOD CREEK WOODSMAN is so close to being done done done. Post-production guy had a bit of surgery and a few other delays.
Helping produce a horror feature. More news later.
Tim Shrum is pulling together another horror short for me down in Oklahoma. Tim directed the "Crazed" segment on the TRULY DREADFUL TALES anthology.
Will have a booth at the CHERRY CITY COMIC CON at the beginning of May.
Looking forward to attending another CRYPTICON SEATTLE at the end of May.

Last spring, I wrote a post all about my hopes that creator Don Coscarelli would make a Phantasm 5: http://fandcproductions.blogspot.com/2013/04/phantasm-5.html
I was so excited to read that not only was a new Phantasm coming out, but that it was already all shot and they'd managed to shoot it over the last several years and keep it a secret. Plus several of the regular actors were included in it.
Later in the day, it was revealed that Don did not direct this. A guy named David Hartman did, "under the supervision of Coscarelli." Turns out Don co-wrote it, and has expressed how excited he is about it, so I am still looking forward to it.
But the AMAZING thing was in poking around looking for info about this today, I found a post on a bulletin board from LAST YEAR, where someone had pointed out that one of the fake DVD covers that was in a shot in Don's JOHN DIES AT THE END movie, was in fact for "Phantasm Ravager!"
I first saw JOHN DIES AT THE END when Don himself introduced it at the Seattle International Film Festival in 2012. So for YEARS, the title of the next Phantasm movie has been right there!!!
I grabbed a screen shot someone had posted and lightened it up a lot to better see the spine of the DVD box. Sure enough…there it is:
