Carlos "Glenn" Dunn was the Founder and CEO of Vampires2 Films LLC with Virtual and On-Location studios in Colima, Mexico and in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

His first movie, the Award Winning Cult Classic Horror-Romance: "Carlos Dunn's Katherine" was praised as "Like watching an old John Carpenter film".

Carlos wrote Pulp Fiction style stories for more than 50 years; in addition to numerous screenplays. He published and sold more than 70 short stories and also published 7 novels. Carlos was a back stage musician and back up singer at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry from 1970 to 1974, playing 5-string banjo and string bass and singing harmony. He toured with greats like the late Bill Monroe, The Osborn Brothers, Lester Flatt, and Hee Haw's Archie Campbell.

Carlos founded Vampires2 Publishing company in the early 1980s and founded Vampires2Films LLC in 2014. His dream was to become a major independent filmmaker and was well on his way when he became ill during filming of the Maggie Shayne vampire story he had fallen in love with.

Our amazing friend tragically passed from cancer in 2018; at which time his partners and co-producers at Ghost Walk Studios LLC finished the work of his dreams, "Maggie Shayne's Embrace The Twilight", in his honor.

The movie received a standing ovation at its Red Carpet Premiere screening November 16, 2019.

Director Statement

"I don't make movies just to make movies, I make them to make money so I can create other films. A lot of small parts must come together. Each film must Never have been done before, it must appeal to a large audience, and you can visualize the entire movie by saying 2 sentences or less."
