Saturn's Core Audio & Video Releases Ltd. Edition VHS Monster in the Garage/Zombie Love Slave double feature!
Saturn's Core is proud to present a double dose of 90's era SOV mayhem from Corvallis, Oregon's resident B-Movie madman Joe Sherlock (Odd Noggins, Drifter)! This double feature tape includes Joe's 1997 infamous no-budget masterpiece "Monster In The Garage" along with his "lost" 1999 flick "Zombie Love Slave" starring Debbie D. which has never been released before on any home video format! Features cover art designed by Joe himself plus each copy comes with a hand numbered and signed art card with more original "monster" art from Joe. Limited to 25 copies. These will ship in December. This is a must for all fans of mind-melting shot on video insanity.
MONSTER IN THE GARAGE: Poor Steve. He's a slob and everyone gives him a hard time about it. He and his lovely wife Edie are planning a party. Little do they know that a flying saucer has crash landed behind their house and the hungry creature from inside the ship is hiding in their cluttered garage. Guests arrive for the party...but may never be seen again!
ZOMBIE LOVE SLAVE: Zombies hungry for flesh and sex are on the prowl, invading a family reunion and harassing local sunbathers. Bloody entrail munching and beer cooler decapitations abound, while scream queen Debbie D. (Burglar From Hell / Jacker) strips nude and verbally assaults the viewer. Can the living escape before the military strike oblitrrates the countryside? Find out in Joe Sherlock's lost SOV zombie epic!

I had a FANTASTIC shoot for the 'YOU BITCHES AIN'T WITCHES' segment of BEYOND THE WALL OF FEAR on Sunday. This comedy/horror short had a bit more comedy than horror and the ladies - Bryn Kristi, Liana Williams and Jewel Siren - were all sexy and hilarious. Bikinis, hot tubbing', witchraftin' and wine-drinkin' fun. These three were last seen in ODD NOGGINS (check out the wacked-out trailer for that here: http://www.skullfaceastronaut.com/oddnoggins.html)
Speaking of BEYOND THE WALL OF FEAR, I've put a whole bunch of photos from other segments at the end of this post!
I am working on a new illustration for a cool, limited edition project. Can't spill the details just yet, but let's just say it's a celebration of old shot-on-video. More news soon!
Writer Henry Weintraub recently got his final test print of the DEMONIZED graphic novel that I illustrated and it looks great! He said that everyone who pre-ordered it should get theirs in a couple of weeks. I should have a few available after that for sale in the store (http://skullfaceastronaut.com/drsquid/order.html) and you can check out some preview pages right now here: http://skullfaceastronaut.com/demonized.html
Found out the screening time for DRIFTER at the Living Dead Con in Portland, Oregon - Friday, Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. Not the greatest time, especially for folks who work regular hours, but here's the cool part: in the same room, after DRIFTER, director Fred Olen Ray will be showing his b-horror comedy classic HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS! More info on the con at http://www.livingdeadcon.com
OK, here are a bunch of pics from BEYOND THE WALL OF FEAR!

I met fellow Oregon filmmaker Henry Weintraub several years ago at a theater we both held screenings at. We had both been making microbudget features and shorts for years. He had long had an idea for a feature called DEMONIZED, a dark comedy set in the late nineties about a demon who possess multiple people, one of them a bullied goth kid.
Time and money are always issues with independent film, and Henry knew that with the scope of his story, it wasn't practical to do the traditional micro-budget way. So he approached me with the idea of doing DEMONIZED as a graphic novel, and I thought it was a great way to go! So Henry did rough storyboards and send dialogue text and I drew it all up and had a great time doing it! Henry's wife Sara painted a great cover for the book, too!
So the artwork is all done and the book layout is nearly complete, and I thought it would be great to open up preorders for a few weeks before it gets printed. Check out the options and check out several PREVIEW PAGES at http://www.skullfaceastronaut.com/demonized.html

Also had a great screening of DRIFTER as a part of the Northwest Comic Fest Film Festival, also in Salem, Oregon. The movie showed in a great big theater and we had a wonderful Q&A afterwards!
The DRIFTER himself, Bob Olin was able to make it for the end of the movie and Q&A!
Did some editing yesterday on both the SCARED TO DEATH and TABITHA shorts. Excited to see them coming together. Also have been working on going through all the footage Joel Wynkoop shot for me for the DIARY OF BLOOD short.
Last week I finished drawing the last page of the DEMONIZED graphic novel. Have been furiously working on computer clean-up, gray tone screens and dialogue balloons. Getting close and I'll put up a big preorder page here soon for it.
Some exciting news on the horizon, but you'll just have to stay tuned for that!

What if back in the late 1980s, Metallica put out an album called "Guernica?" Well, this painting, based on the famous one by Picasso, might have been the album artwork!

Had a wonderful screening of BLOOD CREEK WOODSMAN at the f/Stop Fitzgerald's in Salem, Oregon. Backed screening room, met some very cool folks, sold a few movies and had a great time. Working with them to set up some more screenings in the coming months!
Had a fantastic time at Crypticon Seattle 2015. Have TONS of photos I am going through. Slowly getting my trip diary together.
Have been busy with a lot of "life stuff" as of late, hence the lack of updates, or progress on the Crypticon trip diary. But I have managed to squeeze in a little bit of shooting. Shot all of a horror short up in Washington state back in June. Shot a bit for another short and looking to schedule the rest of it. Also shot some sequences for another Oregon horror filmmaker's project. Also, my music is going to be used in two different upcoming horror anthologies. I'll get some postings up about all this stuff before too long. On top of it all, I have been working on several short scripts I hope to shoot later this summer and fall.
Finally, I have been making good progress on the DEMONIZED graphic novel. I am in the last part of the book and have been having a lot of fun illustrating the crazy things that Henry has going on as the story all comes together. Again, more news specifically on all that in a future post.
So basically, more later…
