- AT LONG LAST: Along with my co-author Sheri Sebastian Gabriel, we have FINALLY finished our epic tome titled SATANIC CINEMA: A GUIDE TO OCCULT FILMS OF THE 1970s. The book clocks in at over 130,000 words, and is currently in the editing stages. The project took us over a year, and over 130 films are given lengthy synopsis and comments. We'll be shopping it around just as soon as the final edit is completed. To say we're excited about this project is a massive understatement.
- My "Third World Cannibal" novella, KANNIBALEN IN DER STADT, is nearing completion and will be a part of a very limited edition Third World Cannibal series from Dynatox Ministries, who are quickly becoming one of the coolest small press specialty publishers around. In a nutshell: Members of a remote South American cannibal tribe are brought back to Manhattan for study by anthropologists. Guess what happens? I'm having a blast doing my version of DR. BUTCHER meets CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST meets any and all of those types of films.
- I understand my "nunspolitation" novella, THE BLASPHEMOUS SISTERS OF SAINT APOLLONIA, will be out soon from Dynatox Ministries. This is also an extremely limited edition so you might want to keep your eyes on their site: Dynatox Ministries Bookstore
- I'm making some nice headway in my bizarro novel, CHANNEL 79. It's the tale of two buddies, a community television motivational speaker, and a very liberal Catholic nun. And streaking. And a whole lot of surprises that have both my dachshunds scared.
AND IN OTHER NEWS:
This past Friday, March 14th, I had the absolute pleasure of seeing the NYC premiere of THE DANCE OF REALITY at the Museum of Modern Art. It's the first film in almost 23 years by the iconic cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky, and I was fortunate enough to be sitting three rows behind him during the entire screening (see non-stalker pic below). The film was followed by a wonderful Q&A session, but as hard as I tried afterward, I just couldn't get a pic with the man himself. But a great time was had, and Cinema Knife Fight will be publishing my review of the film on Tuesday, March 18th.
YES! That's the legendary Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky just three rows in front of me. I was in Geek-Fanboy Heaven!
Slick poster. If I was still a teenager I may have attempted to swipe it...dang adulthood!
That's all for now folks...
