Hey, so there’s a Ludlow review over at the mighty fine Horror Digest. Check it out and become a reader of André’s bitchin’ blog…if you dare. I mean, if you’re not one already.
There. Now that that’s out of the way, I figured I’d mention that I’m currently editing a new fake trailer…well, it’s a real trailer for a fake film, at least…called In Satan’s Closet. The title comes from this list of 50 horror movie titles I made up (you may notice that a good number of these titles were used in Season One of Ghostella’s Haunted Tomb).
What I like about making these trailers is that they don’t have to make any sense because they’re trailers. I’m not out to tell a story, I’m out simply to have a bunch of weird shit happen. Generally, a story presents itself as I go along, but mostly it’s just me shooting a bunch of crazy crap, then putting it all together somehow. It’s a process that thrills me to no end, and I love that I know people who are willing to go along with my ridiculousness and make it happen by doing silly stuff and (usually) getting bloody.
I started In Satan’s Closet months ago- shot some tidbits, then let it lie. I finally picked it up again and finished it this past weekend and I’m really excited to put it all together. It’s a tale of Satan worship and demonic possession, and the “film” was shot in the 1970s during the height of the possession craze. I looooooove movies about possession- I talked about my love some once upon a time in my AMC column- and making one (or, more accurately, pieces of one) was obscene amounts of fun.
As I said, I’m in the editing stages now, and I can’t wait for it to be finished (although as I was typing this, I thought of another character/scene I want to add, so…). There’s a fairly large cast, including Shannon Lark, Heidi Martinuzzi, Lena Headey, Brea Grant, Thomas Dekker, Jade & Nikita Ramsey, Nicole Pacent, and more more more. Some of these people were exposed to my shenanigans for the very first time, but everyone was amazing and the results are positively scintillating. Or at least I hope they will be. Oh, and “shenanigans” is not a euphemism.
Not gonna lie, though- I might be most excited about using music from Fabio Frizzi’s score for City of the Living Dead aka The Gates of Hell aka Paura nella città dei morti viventi in this. It’s fucking BOSS. I’m also very excited about my use of Futura bold for the title font. For me, it’s the little things, you know?
