Over the Edge

Back in 2017, my old friend—and the ultimate movie fan—Mike White invited me to be a guest on his award-winning film podcast, The Projection Booth, to discuss one of my favorite movies of all time: 1979’s Over the Edge.

I have just learned that UK-based Arrow Films is putting out a special-edition Blu-Ray of Over the Edge in May. And among their many “Extras” will be excerpts from the audio commentary that Mike, Mondo Heather, and I did during our episode about the movie back in 2017.

I’m not even sure my voice made the final cut, but I don’t care. Just having my name attached to this is a personal honor, and almost beyond my comprehension.

You can still hear our original, epic-length “Over the Edge” podcast episode here.

Special Edition Over the Edge Blu-Rays are available for pre-order here.

“Fleeting Nirvana” Trailer

I just cut the trailer for a compelling new short film, “Fleeting Nirvana”, directed by Michael Phoenix.

Starring Allison Pittel and Michael Phoenix.

“Distant” to Screen at Coney Island Film Fest

“DISTANT”, the 2-minute horror short that I created with my wife Ashlie while in quarantine, has been accepted to the 20th annual Coney Island Film Festival.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s festival will be held online. This is a sad blow for those of us who, in past years, loved gathering at the bumper cars to hear the awards being announced. But I’m grateful that it’s still happening, in some form. And I can assure you that—after this summer—the festival and its parent organization, Coney Island USA, need your financial support now more than ever.

 

The good news: The new format—courtesy of Xerb TV—allows you to watch any program in the festival, at any time, on any day between September 22 and October 2.

“Distant” will screen online as part of Program 8 – Horror Shorts. Tickets for Program 8 are $7, and available here.

Tickets to the entire festival are only $20, if you order them before Sept. 8th. Get festival tickets here.

 

This will be my second time participating in the festival. The first was with my documentary Fancy Feast: The Fat Burlesque Performer (a.k.a. “Character”), back in 2017.

“Distant” stars Ashlie Atkinson, Chris Kelly, and Jennifer Laine Williams. It was originally created for Roger Corman’s Quarantine Film Festival back in April.
