  • Old Fears

    by John Wooley & Ron Wolfe

    After twenty years away, Mick Winters has come home to find his worst childhood fears waiting for him. The spider so big it fills the mouth of the culvert. The black shadow lurking in the old coal pit. The slithering thing under the bed. Old fears, nothing but figments of a child’s imagination. Except — why is Jerry Meyers lying in the morgue with a torn jugular full of insect venom? What’s terrorizing the miners of Tanapah, Oklahoma? And what dragged Mike Henshaw beneath his bed and suffocated him? A horror epidemic for which there is no explanation — and no cure — descends upon the town and turns Mick’s dream vacation into a nightmare where old fears become deadly realities.

  • Phantasm Exhumed

    by Dustin McNeill

McNeill has also designed official websites for Phantasm veterans including co-star Bill Thornbury and talented SPFX creator Mark Shostrom.

  • Further Exhumed: The Strange Case of Phantasm Ravager

    by Dustin McNeill

    The fifth and final Phantasm took an incredible eight years to go from set to screen. The project began as an experimental short before becoming a thirteen part web series and finally a feature length sequel. Shot in secret on a microbudget, Ravager reunites Phantasm ‘s core cast thirty-five years after the original cult classic. The new sequel filmed not in Hollywood soundstages but in the homes of cast and crew. Visual effects were handled mostly by the director. Decades-old props were taken out of storage and dusted off for reuse. They just don’t make movies like this anymore. In fact, they never really did to begin with. Such is The Strange Case of Phantasm Ravager

    Long ago, long before Sylver the weasel was born, the humans all left Welkin.

It’s certainly not enough for Sylver. Or for his small band of outlaws, both jacks and jills. But slingshots and darts can only do so much against heavily-armed stoats and life as an outlaw has a fairly limited future (probably a painful one, too). That’s when Sylver comes up with his plan – a heroic plan that could destroy the stoats’ reign of power for ever. He will find the humans, and bring them back to Welkin! And the first step is to follow up a clue from the past – a clue that lies in a place known as Thunder Oak
