There's A Red House Over Yonder
A found footage movie I wrote, "Alone in the Ghost House," will be debuting Friday June 5 at 10 p.m. at the Englewood Cinema in Englewood, Ohio. I wrote it so quickly, and it was produced so quickly, I keep forgetting that I worked on it. And now here it is. I didn't write a script per se as I did about a 30-page extended treatment with some dialogue and situations and a lot of plotting and character breakdowns. Astoundingly, it is pretty much all in there, thanks to some good acting and improv work (and some hella editing). Plenty of chills, even though I pretty much knew what was going to happen. I think it's a cool entry in the found footage subgenre, but check it out for yourself.
