MANOS RETURNS World Premiere set for Friday, May 4, 2018, 9 p.m. at Crypticon Seattle

That's right - MANOS RETURNS is finally complete! And the World Premiere set for Friday, May 4, 2018, 9 p.m. at Crypticon Seattle! Cast & crew will be in attendance and there will be Q&A.

In this sequel to the b-movie classic and Mystery Science Theater 3000 favorite, Manos - the Hands of Fate, four friends get lost on a road trip and stumble on a hidden cult led by the sinister Master and his servant Torgo. As they try to escape, they get caught up in the power struggle between Debbie, given to Manos as a child 50 years ago, her mother Maggie, and the other souls twisted by their time serving the dark god.

 Original cast members return from the 1966 original including Tom Neyman as THE MASTER, Diane Adelson as Maggie and Jackey Neyman Jones as Debbie. In addition, Bryan Jennings plays the sheriff, a role his dad played in the original.

 I co-produced this and was director of photography among the usual millions of jobs you do as a small indie production. I think the flick turned out well, especially the last part of it - very creepy!

Zombie Love Slave now available on VOD - Debbie D! Laura G!

I’ve had people asking about this for a while, so I finally put it up - Zombie Love Slave, the no-budget goofball horror comedy with plenty of blood and gore!

Plus Debbie D! 

Shot-on-video SOV cheese from the late 1990s. Includes the short feature plus two additional SOV indie horror schlockfests: Treespirit plus Death Nurse starring W.A.V.E. video favorite Laura G! Behind the scenes & bloopers at the end, too.

Cheap VHS-C & Hi8 backyard wonders from years gone by.

2017 Wrap-Up

I started off the year with a fun interview with Mike over at (re)Search My Trash - http://www.searchmytrash.com/articles/joesherlock(1-17).shtml

Next up I had a great time on the HORROR NIGHT OASIS podcast with Havoc and Ian - the live feed cut out after 30 minutes but you can check out the whole interview including an additional 15 minutes right here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/horrornightoasis/2017/01/20/horror-night-oasis-with-havok-and-ian-110



Had an awesome time at the Ace Frehley concert on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017 at the Neptune Theater in Seattle, WA. Enuff Z'Nuff opened - I had never seen them live before. Last time I saw Ace solo was way back in the 1990s! Ace welcomed Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready to the stage and they performed Cold Gin! Great show and lots of fun!




I've set up a page on the ol' SKULLFACE ASTRONAUT website to collect all the Video On Demand offerings I've set up this year: http://www.skullfaceastronaut.com/vod



I had a swell time at Crypticon Seattle 2017 in May. I was a panelist on 4 panels, met all kinds of neat people and was interviewed with my fellow producers about MANOS RETURNS. Check out my trip diary!




Finally got around to compiling a video as well as a big blog post about Crypticon Seattle 2016 - check it out! http://fandcproductions.blogspot.com/2017/04/crypticon-seattle-2016-pics-video.html

My ‘nerd noir’ thriller UNDERBELLY has been featured by the fine fellas at Mr. Skin.com! Not only that, they gave it three out of four stars and declared, "Great Nudity!"

“Mr. Skin is so happy to have been taken down to this sexy Underbelly full of hot ladies…This feels less like a crime den and more like Mr. Skin's living room!”

Check it out: http://www.mrskin.com/underbelly-nude-scenes-t56645

You can pick up a DVD of UNDERBELLY (complete with commentary track, behind-the-scenes and bloopers, photo shoot, and director interview) in THE STORE, or check it out streaming via Video On Demand:

I did another run of Skullface Astronaut t-shirts this year and made a nifty little video about it:

Had a fun time talking about microbudget horror movies, rock bands and more on David Sterling's NIGHT TALK Facebook Live show several times this year. Here's one of the shows: https://www.facebook.com/david.sterling.167/videos/vb.684722362/10155361329717363/




I was really stoked that BEYOND THE WALL OF FEAR was selected for the 2017 Scare-A-Con Film Festival, October 6-8 at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York.



I was also honored to have been invited to include my first two shot-on-video horror efforts in the 7th Annual Spectacle Shriek Show in Brooklyn, New York back in October!

From the promo: “The first two films by cult filmmaker and illustrator Joe Sherlock are a welcome addition to the Shriek Show canon. With 30 years of filmmaking under his belt, Joe has a deep love for all things horror, a penchant for practical effects, and a tongue planted firmly in his cheek. What would our marathon be without some rubber masks, homemade slime, or butchery on a budget? Nothing.”



A nice end to the year was seeing this collection of a true die-hard fan of my and my buddy John Bowker's film work. So very cool to see all these varied releases of our crazy b-movies from the last few decades!


So, if you've read this far, you'll likely notice a lack of a new movie project this year. Well, I actually have been shooting a new project off and on all year. I'll be honest with you all, this has been the craziest, most frustrating time I have had trying to get something made!!! Shoots cancelled due to illness or other issues, actors and actresses dropping out, recasting, more drop outs, recasting, rescheduling, rescheduling, rescheduling, on and on and on. I had planned to be announcing a finished new movie at the end of the year, but at this point I have 2 shoots and a series of pick-ups still to do, then resume editing, music, sound, etc. In any case, here is what I've been working on: STRANGE MONSTERS!


This is a movie that celebrates b-movies by being chock full of blood, monsters and beautiful ladies. My goal is to make a fun and fast paced b-horror flick that goes well with a comfy couch, some like-minded genre fan friends and maybe some cold beer. I'm thrilled to have worked with Jackey Neyman Jones (Manos The Hands of Fate, Manos Returns) and cult favorite George Stover (The Alien Factor, John Waters' early works) as well as old friends and a few new faces. Plan to have it out in early 2018, so stay tuned to this blog!!!



Check out the STRANGE MONSTERS page for more pics and info about pre-orders.


Onward to the future! Thanks to everyone for their support!
