"Not 'Hollywood Independent' - writer John Oak Dalton is the real Real Thing." --Cinema Minima."Very weird and unpopular b-movies and comics."--Blogalicious. "After watching the film I am left to wonder if he had some childhood trauma he is not telling us about."--IMDB user review. "Screenwriter John Oak Dalton wanted to be in Hollywood. Instead, he's in the rustic kitchen above the Germania General Store, stirring a pot of boiling hot dogs."
--The Harrisburg Patriot-News.
Some of my screenplays have been on some pretty windy roads--witness HELLSHOCKED (original title) to BLACK MASS to DEAD KNIGHT (with spliced in footage) to THE DA VINCI CURSE (in Japan) to ARMY OF WOLVES (more spliced in new footage)--so here' s the new JURASSIC PREY formerly known as MEATEATERS when it came out on Full Moon Streaming. Happily this is getting DVD release as a mockbuster this summer, dinosaur puppetry intact. A nice new trailer to boot.
After fifteen years of screenwriting, and around ten movies released, I finally found one of my movies in the wild, at a video store in Richmond, Indiana. A strange feeling. A pretty eye-catching cover in that retro way. Please let me know if you see it loose in society at firstname.lastname@example.org.
