My next project, Circus of Dread, has had a lengthy gestation period, and is finally approaching production.
Bill Oberst Jr. and Domiziano Arcangeli topline this dark, brutal, sensual, and action-packed story of two brothers sucked into the grotesque maelstrom of an underground circus.
Without a doubt, this is just the sort of Pulp that this blog is dedicated to -- and , I trust, something special for lovers of dark, weird, and 'fantastique' cinema.
As a lifelong lover, devotee, and fan of this material, my mission is to make a movie that I would love to see myself, that I would embrace for its originality, passion, and raw truth.
That's my challenge, and its my responsibility to engage my audience, give them a cracking good time, and disturb the shit out of them with compelling characters in unpredictable situations.
This first piece of art is by the brilliant Santiago Caruso, whose work I've showcased several times on this blog. For me, it perfectly captures the spirit of this considerable creative undertaking, a true collaboration of like-minded individuals. They know who they are, and I'm grateful to them all.
The circus IS coming! Nothing can stop it.
