INTO THE DARK: A Nasty Piece of Work Is a delightfully nasty piece of work. It is not for those who want to watch a Christmas show full of good cheer. This is biting, darkly funny and one hopes dreadfully disturbing. Paul Soter’s script is wild, sharp and funny. Charles Hood wonderful sense of comedy and tension never let us flounder as actors. The cast all came ready, willing and more than able and we had a BLAST! Kyle Howard, Angela Sarafyan, Dustin Milligan, Natalie Hall, Nico Greetham and Julian Sands are the best playmates.
Here are some reviews to whet your appetite: Film Threat, Rogert Ebert, Nightmarish Conjurings

Just a P.S. I don’t think I have ever had the privilege to play a character this big, this flawed, this outrageous in film or television before. I loved the ride.
Los Angeles doesn’t just have one horror film festival throughout the year they have at least 9! Wow, who knew? I am in two of the bigger ones this weekend and next week: Shriekfest and Screamfest.
Horror is not my favorite genre to watch as I am a bit of a delicate hothouse flower and am easily terrified. My nervous system simply can not take it. I already grind my teeth, I already jump/shriek if I bump into someone when I round a corner, and I already have a thrilling soundtrack playing in my head. Perhaps I should be on Xanax. But filming horror movies is FUN!
The first film is THE LAST LIGHT. It is a psychological thriller that scared me even while reading it. Andrew Hyatt wrote and directed this film. I saw THE FROZEN (also written and directed by Andrew) and I thought I was going to jump out of my skin. Andrew is a master at building tension. THE LAST LIGHT premieres at ShriekFest on Saturday Night, October 5. To learn more or to buy tickets click here shriekfest.com/schedule_2013
The next film is called BENEATH it is directed by Ben Ketai. Ben already has a fan club from movies like 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: DARK DAYS and the digital series CHOSEN. If you are claustrophobic and like being scared this film is for you! BENEATH premiers at ScreamFest this Tuesday night. BENEATH has the honor of opening the festival.

I have yet to see either of these films. So if you attend, you may not want to sit next to me. I’m rather a nuisance. Yes I will shout things at the screen, I will scream, and I will grab your arm and beg “Why am I here? Why am I watching this? Help me!”
Happy Horror Season,
