How I Spent My Summer Vacation: Making JOHNNY GRUESOME  
About two months ago, I let the cat out of the bag: my new film project, initially announced as A GRAVE MATTER, is in fact JOHNNY GRUESOME, the teen horror flick I scripted in 1984 and novelized in 2006 (the year my daughter was born).  My dream project, but also an albatross hanging over my head all these years.  I had hoped to blog about the making of the film during its production, but this is my largest project to date, and as producer, director, writer and casting director, I was just too busy.  However, these two online articles will fill in the blanks for now.

Rue-Morgue.com broke the story, and issue #169, currently on newsstandsm, features an interview with me.  Thanks to April Snellings for showing an interest.

And Bloody-Disgusting.com was the first to run images from the production:

Between these two articles, you'll learn everything we've made public, but I will occasionally share more information here.  You can also follow the film's progress on our official Facebook page:
