Jackey Neyman Jones (Mystery Science Theater 3000 fave MANOS THE HANDS OF FATE, MANOS RETURNS, THINGS 5: STRANGE MONSTERS, BEYOND THE WALL OF FEAR) returns to the Skullface Astronaut universe for DARK ZONE THIRTEEN.

OK, that's the set-up. What do we get? Evil doll. Serial Killer. Ghost. Magical book. Beings from beyond. Blood. More blood. Blood, babes and beasts. You know the drill. Pretty much the fun b-horror ingredients you've come to expect from me!

Tom Shaffer will always be my Dr. Mobius

My long-time filmmaking friend Tom Shaffer has passed away.

He was in my movies.

I was in his movies.

I’m very sad we won’t be able to do that anymore.



Tom Shaffer will always be my Dr. Mobius.

Way, way back in 1995, Tom starred as Dr. Thomas Mobius in my short feature DIMENSION OF BLOOD. Inspired by the X-Files and my life-long love of horror movies, I embarked on shooting this no-budget epic on my big ol’ VHS camcorder, labeling the raw footage tapes as “Man In Black,” the working title and the mysterious character that I played. There was a lot of collaboration - Tom introduced me to several of his friends and co-workers who were cast, and he provided a lot of locations, and even wrote a few scenes.


Brian, Brenda and Tom on set from DIMENSION OF BLOOD


I did not realize it until later but Tom’s performance as Dr. Mobius was really just an extension of himself. He was well-read; he had an encyclopedic knowledge of many subjects from history to religion to literature; he had a huge heart and wanted to help people often to his own detriment; he was quirky and had a bit of a stutter; he was a trooper.

We bonded over these do-it-yourself video epics and Tom was quickly making his own movies, which I would help shoot and often act in.

Tom played the title character of my next effort, MONSTER IN THE GARAGE, as well as a hippie party guest and a few aliens.


Tom and his monster suit from MONSTER IN THE GARAGE


Tom getting a squib rig taped to his chest playing the "alien big daddy" in the dream sequence from MONSTER IN THE GARAGE


My horror comedy TRAILER PARK DOUBLE WIDE TRILOGY OF TERROR was conceived precisely because Tom lived in a trailer park and loved having stuff shot at his place, so we planned several segments right there.

Tom was in a bunch of my anthologies and features after that.

When I put my thriller UNDERBELLY together, I made Tom the star and I wrote his character to basically be Tom - a nerdy kind of guy who reacts in quirky ways when thrown into a small town world of drug dealers, pimps and ladies of the night. The character uses a walking stick and limps, because in real life Tom’s van had slid off an icy road and he was really using a walking stick and limping. The rusty car that belches blue smoke at the beginning? That was his car, complete with ruffle-edged pillow on the deteriorated car seat.

All the while, Tom was making his own shorts and features, and we often shared a stable of actor friends. The most-told story about one of Tom’s shoots was unfortunately when we were way out in the woods, and it was raining and he had to drive back to town to get a forgotten camera battery while we waited. When he came back, we continued and an actress who I later found out hated tapioca pudding had handfulls of tapioca pudding thrown at her face from off-camera to simulate slime from a monster whose head she was beating in with a branch. She was a trooper. We all were.

Later Tom was bugging me about doing a sequel to DIMENSION OF BLOOD. I had a concept but it was too ambitious for no-to-low-budget and I also had several projects on my plate, so I half-jokingly suggested that HE should make a sequel. And amazingly, he did - in fact he made 3 sequel shorts and then proceeded to make more shorts all about a widened DOB universe he’d created. I was fine with it - the original was still the original - and it was fascinating to see where he took it all. And at the center of it all, there he was: Tom all these years later, once again inhabiting the character of Dr. Mobius.


A shot from one of Tom's many sequel shorts to DIMENSION OF BLOOD


Some of Tom’s videos can be found here - https://www.youtube.com/user/RomneyGack/videos

Thank you, Tom, for making movies with me, and loving your family so very much.

Rest in peace.

Tom loved his family more than anything in the world.

Rare SOV fantasy DREAMWALKERS Now Available on VOD!

I put DREAMWALKERS up on my Vimeo channel. This was my buddy John Bowker's first movie, a ambitious sci-fi fantasy, shot on Hi-8 and 8mm video, cut together on 3/4" tape. Seems so primitive now but hey - that's all we had at the time!!

Dreamwalkers from Joe Sherlock on Vimeo.

Shot-on-video fantasy adventure from the late 1990s

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 seperates 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.

Writer/director John Bowker’s (Evilmaker/Abomination Evilmaker 2/Platoon of the Dead) very first feature from the way back days of hi-8 video shows his early fascination with dreams, good vs. evil, and getting his friends together to put on a show!

Bloopers included after the end credits!

2018 Wrap Up

Truth be told, 2018 was pretty fucking terrible for me personally. However, I try to stick to movie stuff on this blog and traditionally do one of these year-end wraps-ups, so I pushed myself to do this one and hit some highlights:

Back in May, MANOS RETURNS had its World Premiere at Crypticon Seattle! Cast and crew were in attendance, we had to have tons of extra chairs brought into the room for all the folks show showed up and had a great audience response and Q and A afterwards.

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! It played at a few other film fests and indie theaters and we're currently working on a distribution deal for it, so stay tuned.



Thanks to The Gorehound’s Playground in Fort Collins, Colorado for showing BEYOND THE WALL OF FEAR in their screening room back on August 3. Great-looking shop full of all things horror (including a bunch of Skullface Astronaut titles!) - check them out at https://www.thegorehoundsplayground.com/



This blew my mind. My nearly 20-year old shot-on-video vampire short flick CRIMSON HEATHER was chosen to play at Portland, Oregon's historic Hollywood Theater on Tuesday, October 16 as a double feature with cult director Andy Milligan's THE BODY BENEATH, all as a part of the Hollywood Theater's "Repressed Cinema" series (https://hollywoodtheatre.org/events/vampire-double-feature/)! I went and had a great time - it was so cool and weird to see it up on a gigantic screen! Sold a few DVDs in the lobby and met some great folks.




This was really sweet - my slasher flick Blood Creek Woodsman signed & numbered limited edition clamshell VHS with kickass art, plus a slipcover with red foil lettering plus 2 buttons AND a papercraft Blood Creek Woodsman, all from Film Trauma. Only 25 were made. Details at http://filmtrauma.com/BCWdetails.htm

In the fall, I was interviewed for this swell story about Manos: The Hands of Fate and Manos Returns in the Corvallis Gazette-Times:

https://www.gazettetimes.com/entertainment/movies/years-after-cult-film-debuted-manos-returns/article_f2e55d41-1aa7-5e52-8b10-47af222bd96c.html

This was ahead of the double feature screening we had on Tuesday, October 30 at the Darkside Cinema. Star Jackey Neyman Jones, director Tonjia Atomic and were there and it was well-attended, Jackey answered a lot of questions and even sold a few of her books.





The Strange Monsters flick that I mentioned having so many problems with at the end of last year's Year-End Wrap-Up blog post (and it only got worse - I had to reshoot nearly 25% of it this year!!!) was finally finished and released as THINGS 5: STRANGE MONSTERS from Sterling Entertainment.

They made a really cool cover for it and it is a fun, gratuitous b-monster movie! For ordering details, you have to message David Sterling from his Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/david.sterling.167

THINGS 5: STRANGE MONSTERS features Jackey Neyman Jones (Manos: The Hands of Fate, Beyond the Wall of Fear) and a cameo by cult favorite actor George Stover (The Alien Factor, Nightbeast) plus a whole mess of Skullface Astronaut regulars. Mysterious experiments are going on at the BioGen4 Research Labs…and now, those experiments…are loose! Monsters…creatures…hungry for flesh and blood. THINGS 5 is filled with sexy women, bizarre beasts and buckets of gore!

Crack open a few cold ones and enjoy this crazy flick! You can check out pics at http://skullfaceastronaut.com/strange/

Stream THINGS 5 on Vimeo




At the end of the year I put out this LIMITED EDITION SKULLFACE ASTRONAUT BOX SET! 14 b-movies chock full of babes, blood, beasts and pudding! All in a snazzy clear acrylic display with the iconic Skullface Astronaut on each end. As of this moment there are three left. $157 with shipping in the USA included. Email me for details.
This year I added a few videos to my VIMEO channel:




http://www.skullfaceastronaut.com/vod

As the year limps to a close, I have several shorts that I've promised a friend to get done, so will be focusing on getting those off of my plate. I'll also be contributing a segment to Phil Herman's new anthology HORRORTALES 666 PART 2, which will be released sometime in 2019.

I've got tons of ideas for movies, comics, music and all sorts of creative stuff - trick is staying afloat, finding the energy and motivation and making the time to do them. Will my Year-End Wrap-Up for 2019 be better than 2018? I sure as hell hope so.

Thanks to all for the years of support. Hug the ones you love and try to be good.

- Joe

Strange Monsters News Soon...New Ebay stuff...Tales for the Midnight Hour 2



Greetings horror fans!

Well it’s August which means the dang summer is almost over. But at least it means Halloween is coming up, right?

Pre-orders just closed for STRANGE MONSTERS, so I am getting the final names added to the credits and finishing up the last few edits and then will be getting a limited edition DVD run done. Once I get those mailed out, I’ll add a link to the ol’ Skullface Astronaut store (http://skullfaceastronaut.com/store) for any leftovers I have. 

Check out pics and such from the movie here - http://skullfaceastronaut.com/strange/

Put up some more comics and books and movies and such on Ebay - check it out at https://www.ebay.com/sch/jo-sherl/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

Thanks to The Gorehound’s Playground in Fort Collins, Colorado for showing BEYOND THE WALL OF FEAR in their screening room back on August 3. Great-looking shop full of all things horror (including a bunch of Skullface Astronaut titles!) - check them out at https://www.thegorehoundsplayground.com/

Horror fan (and TWISTED FATES producer) Lee Turner recently started a horror host show on a local channel down in Mississippi and their posted on the channel’s Vimeo channel as well. Word is a Skullface Astronaut short may be included in a future episode! Check out “After Hours Cinema” here - https://vimeo.com/282584094

Latest word I’ve heard on the TALES FOR THE MIDNIGHT HOUR 2 anthology that I contributed a segment to is that it’ll be out from The Sleaze Box folks in Florida sometime in the fall. Keep up with any news here - https://www.facebook.com/Tales-For-The-Midnight-Hour-II-1515061148590451/

Right now, I am still sold out of ODD NOGGINS on DVD, but it’s available on VOD, along with a whole bunch of my flicks including a few really old ones: http://skullfaceastronaut.com/vod/

Recently watched THE INDEPENDENT again, a hilarious comedy directed by Stephen Kessler and starring Jerry Stiller, released back in 2000. Great mockumentary about an infamous b-movie king and the crazy stuff he does to keep creating his art. Highly recommended. Kessler also made the documentary PAUL WILLIAMS STILL ALIVE, another great watch.

Also recently saw ANNIHILATION which was cool, but very much a dreamlike heady experience that understandibly does not satisfy those looking for concreteness in their movies. One of those. But I dug it. Also rewatched UNDER THE SKIN, which I’d seen about three times before. Such a unique movie and another dreamlike thing, but so interesting. The music/sound is perfect for the story. Yeah, it’s slow, but that’s all part of it.

Finally caught THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE and liked it - some nice twists and scary stuff and performances were great. 

Just read about “Eli Roth’s History of Horror” starting on AMC in October - sounds cool. I’ve seen several of the “James Cameron’s History of Science Fiction” episodes and thought they were enjoyable.

My pal John Oak Dalton’s directorial debut THE GIRL IN THE CRAWLSPACE made it to picture lock back in mid-July. Congrats to him and looking forward to checking out the flick - keep up with John at http://johnoakdalton.blogspot.com/

I guess that is it for now. Before you know it, it will be HALLOWEEN!!!

Stay scared,

Joe aka Dr. Squid!

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!
