Director Statement

I am a huge fan of silent and classic horror films. Something about the music, the shadows, reactions and bits of humor that made them fun. I remember as a kid my parents would drop my brother and I off at the theater and we would be there all day! We would have a blast! Watching serials, cartoons and horror movies. And it was what we didn't see that made our imagination go off. Something I feel is lost in a lot of modern horror.

With these series of short films, we wanted to do some original programming for our Halloween specials instead of showing highlights of events that already happened.

In this sequel to "Into The Arms of Death", I wanted to stay true to the silent film standards but add a "Hammer" pace and feel to it.

These are not meant to be taken seriously. They're just meant to be fun. So sit back, grab some popcorn, let your imagination take you back to another place and time and enjoy!
