Oregon Premiere for Drifter set for June 6



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!

Drifter World Premiere a Huge Success!



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!

Never-Before-Released Fantasy Movie DREAMWALKERS Now Available!

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - Way back in 1997, I co-produced a fantasy feature with my friend John Bowker. John wrote and directed, I shot it, played a role in it and edited it with John. Aside from a few VHS copies I had made to give to cast and crew, the movie has never been released to the public. Until now. John has given me permission to issue DREAMWALKERS as a special DVD-r release.

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.."

PIPEDREAMS ENTERTAINMENT in association with F&C PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS * A JOHN BOWKER FILM * DREAMWALKERS starring ERIC SINGER * SHANNON * JOE SHERLOCK * ROB MERICKEL * DAVID DUNCAN * HOLLY THORNHILL * FELICIA PANDOLFI * KYLENE WETHERELL * AMBER THARP * STEPHANIE SHANKS * MOLLY SULLIVAN * KIMBERLY BOWKER * with DALE WILSON * TOM SCHAFFER * NEIL PARKER * JESSIE * SEAN HENDERSON * NICOLE RUSSO * Director of Photography JOE SHERLOCK * Special Make Up effects By ROB MERICKEL * Computer Generated Effects by ERIC SINGER * Produced by JOHNATHAN SCOTT and JOE SHERLOCK * Written and Directed By JOHN BOWKER

This is a test…this is only a test...

This is a test. This is only a test. I loved the markum burger at the Markum Inn and am looking forward to Phantasm Ravager, also known as Phantasm 5. I am a fan of john and mark polonia's crazy no-budget movies. I worked with Ariauna Albright on Platoon of the Dead and have made a bigfoot movie. I dug Don Leifert in The Alien Factor and worked with Heather Storm in my movie Underbelly. I've made several movies with Tom Stedham and my zine and website name is Dr. Squid!

One Third of the Way

OK, it is a third of the way through 2014 and where am I at on these movie things?


DRIFTER is basically done. Planning to reshoot one scene that will add clarity to the story. Working to schedule for next week. Hoping to have news in the next few weeks about a world premiere for this one.


SECRET PROJECT is about 98% done: shot, edited together, music and sound effects done, opening and ending credits done. Trailer is cut together. Just have a few insert shots to do and drop in and then will announce to the world.



Got http://www.skullfaceastronaut.com set up. More to come…



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.

Not bad, but plenty of stuff still to do!!!

PHANTASM: RAVAGER

I got excited today when a million horror news sites posted a teaser poster for Phantasm: Ravager…

 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!"

Mind blown!!!!

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:
