Private Project


A mysterious virus, plague, pharmaceutical drug conspiracy erupts over a city causing a pandemic. In the midst of the chaos, a mentally deranged maniac seeks to fulfill continuous addiction and vengeful murder, despite the imminent demise of society happening around him. The story leads to a family being destroyed leaving an abandoned little girl to save her baby sister.

Necropath was made of 3 short films compiled into a full length grindhouse/indie style film. It was shot with limited budget, being extremely resourceful utilizing the director's Halloween attraction location called Cayo Industrial, which was inside a massive dilapidated warehouse. Each Necropath short had been submitted to festivals winning various awards such as two Best Horror Film Awards, Best Makeup FX, Best Director, Best Death Scene, and Audience Choice Award.

Director Statement

I look forward to collaborating with future producers for reproducing Necropath into a higher budget film and establishing a relationship to create a separate psychological horror mini-series. I currently use my hometown area as a catalyst for my projects and creating films. I am hoping one day to work with James Wan, as he has been a great inspiration following how he got started creating a unique horror concept.
