Your first movie Scarlet Fry's Horrorama is these days re-released as an ultra-limited edition on VHS - now how did that come about?

 

Scarlet Fry's Horrorama was filmed in the years of 1987-90 and we tried to self-distribute, this was back in the videostore era & so we put an ad in Fangoria and sold about 16 copies, the we called some videostores back in 1991 and made it into about 50 videostores max. The original tape is ultra rare, I thought how asweome would it be to finally get this out as it was originally intended, on tape, & the folks at Sub Rosa Studios agreed so we are doing a very limited release of only 30 tapes Feb 28th so keep your eyes & ears open, once it's gone its gone.

 

You might want to film my viewers in, what is Scarlet Fry's Horrorama about?

 

Scarlet Fry's Horrorama was my fist anthology which I started filming when I was only 19 yrs old, There are 5 shorts with a host wrap-around story which links all the stories together, we got zombies, cannibalism, decapitations & lots more gore, Out of all my later films this one is truely gory & a laugh, it's the rawest thing I've ever done and since it was SOV in the 80's it has that feel originally, we didn't need to add it, it just has it by its original nature.

 

Scarlet Fry's Horrorama shows some of your earliest efforts as a filmmaker. Watching them today, how does that make you feel?

 

Great & so glad I did it, it's what launched me into doing 3 more films which are all under distribution today, it's a lot of fun to watch those old movies of mine.

 

I think you have shot the shorts for Scarlet Fry's Horrorama over the course of quite a few years - care to elaborate?

 

We re-shot stuff over & over, we used a VHS camera, then hi-8 came out, although there is one short in the anthology shot on VHS called Manwich.

 

The $64-question of course, where is the film available from?

 

SuB Rosa Studios, Feb 28th. Limited (only 30 copies will be sold)! The release includes a VHS in clam shell case (no big box or deluxe versions on this one), DVD-R, signed mini-lobby card, and an 11×17 mini poster.

Basic question, why a release on VHS, what do you find so fascinating about the format?

 

When we filmed it that's all there was, so VHS is just where it belongs.
