The Anatomy of Monsters

Andrew seems ordinary as he prepares for an evening out. He carefully shaves, styles his hair and selects the perfect outfit. As the hour grows late he decides to make the final preparations by examining his tools for the night; duct tape, rubber gloves and a large hunting knife.
Andrew plans to haunt a bar in order to ensnare an unsuspecting woman, but finds that this is more difficult then it appears. He is starting to lose hope of finding someone, when someone finds him...
Sarah notices Andrew as she is sitting alone in the back of the bar. She strikes up a conversation with him. Last call arrives and Sarah suggests that they get a motel room.
At the motel, Sarah is flirtatious, but Andrew quickly dismisses her advances and instead begins to give in to his dark impulses. He produces the large hunting knife and forces Sarah to cower in fear. She begs him to let her go, but he rebuffs her at every turn. Finally he moves in for the kill.
Andrew wavers. Sarah catches this hesitation and sees an opportunity. She begins to talk to him, in a confident voice about murder...and how to get away with it. She can help him to be a better killer if he will only listen...
What follows is a deadly game of wits, and a soul bearing confession.

Director Biography - Byron Miller

From a childhood in Owensboro, KY, shooting short horror films with neighborhood friends, Byron always had a love for cinema. Over the last decade Byron worked with tireless enthusiasm and optimism on multiple projects as a Writer, Director, Editor, and Singer/Performer. This was only the beginning.

After attending various film and television courses throughout High school and college in Orlando, Florida, Byron immediately worked on multiple local productions in every role from P.A. to 1st A.D. In 2006 Byron utilized this experience to Write, Produce, Direct, and Edit the feature film Night; which was quickly acquired for worldwide home distribution. Relocating to Seattle, Washington Byron directed music videos for bands including The Break Up, Legion Within, Cylab, and Endless Sunder, The Labrynth. He also directed the short film Phantom Theater.

For 8 years Byron was a member of the Industrial band GOD MODULE, bringing his over the top style to their live shows. He performed live at venues across the globe, and created all video material for the band.

In 2015 Byron achieved new heights as a filmmaker and Singer/performer. As the lead singer/lyricist, Byron brought his unbridled enthusiasm to the new Shock Rock band, Ghosts in the Graveyard. Their first single and music video “Better in Black” debuted in September, followed by a charismatic live performance on Halloween. On November 15th, 2016 Artsploitation Films will release Byron’s second feature film, The Anatomy of Monsters; a soul bearing story about the darkest impulses of the human psyche.

Byron is currently attached to Direct two original new Horror films, both in active development in Hollywood, CA.

Director Statement

Midnight Poetry, that’s the term that often echoed through my mind as we created The Anatomy of Monsters. From its earliest inception – notes on paper, echoes in the dark – my intent was to capture the feeling of late night hours and sinister urges. When Paul Morgan took all of my notes and notions and transformed them into a screenplay, I was overjoyed that not only did he nail the characters and story, but more so the poetry. The skeleton had a soul, now I just had to give it viscera and flesh. How thankful was I when my talented cast and crew rose to the occasion, diving into their respective roles, breathing life into the pictures and sounds.
The Anatomy of Monsters is a thriller. I want you to be entertained, frightened, and moved. This is an intimate tale of desire, fear, love, and blood; like a late night drive in an unknown place, entertaining the most personal of pitch black fantasies.
We all have a dark side, and that isn’t a bad thing. That’s why we have movies.
