AWESOME.

And can never tire watching this video.

Rot said...

road trip : )

Jay's Shadow said...

I want the little guy put into the pumpkin. Love his long, floppy tail. :D

Rot said...

I still have him out in the garage inside that corpse.... though the twine that i built those tail segments around snapped on the final take that's in the movie. It took a lot of tries to get him to slide into the body the right way.

Jay's Shadow said...

Your Halloween movie shorts are soon going to enter households around the world.

Every Halloween night, "Hurry! It's almost time!"

Then people's head explode as they're watching....

Rot said...

Conal Cochran style.

Jeff said...

Or you wake up the next morning with a pumpkin head.

Rot said...

i'd actually like that fate.
though I'd be deathly afraid of tripping.

I forgot how wonderful this is. I just unpacked a wonderful devil head I bought from you on etsy years ago, one of my most treasured Halloween items. I wish you lived near all of us on the left coast, your work would be in demand for films out here.

Rot said...

i forgot all about those devil heads.

I'm SO glad you dig it.
There's such a shortage of cool devil wall masks out there.

Hallowaltz said...

Congrats man! And good luck.. I'm sure it will be well received.

Jay's Shadow said...

Kudos has to go out to Mrs. Rot also, she did an excellent job playing the witch.

Rot said...

huge kudos.
she put up with me during the shoot.

we had a lot of fun, but i look back and see that I was impossible to work with and intensely annoying and stupid.

she's a saint.

Jay's Shadow said...

Oh yeah,I NEED a poster too.

Dio said...

Much deserved congrats to you and your Mrs.!

girl6 said...

awwww Yeah man, it's your east coast LOVE letter to the west coast.. <3333333

my FAVE part of the submission rules is....not looking for generic horror. The better the connection to the Halloween season, the better your chances to have your film screened....Yessss!!!

i HOPE the Swamp Witch is ready for her closeup!!. : D

Congratulations guys & Gal.. :)

Vintage Seance said...

Congrats! I am so excited for you! Does this mean you'll be visiting LA? I'd love to talk horror with you, so glad the short is doing well :)

Rot said...

ha...nah
she offered us two tickets : )

That would be WAYYYYYY out of my comfort zone.

Vintage Seance said...

Now I'm sad :( But at least Swamp Foetus will be playing :)

ShellHawk said...

That will go perfectly with the clips of your haunt I'm doing! Can't wait to see it on the big screen!

ShellHawk said...

Oh, and? Next film clip will be "Conal Cochran Style," to the tune of "Gangnam Style."

You know you want to...

Rot said...

haha
you know, when i wrote that i hated my brain for thinking of that song.

funny.

Wikkedmoon said...

Behind every mysterious good man is a good witch. So happy for y'all!

Shani said...

Damn, "Swamp Foetus" is only showing on Saturday and I'm going Sunday. It's short, they should have showed it both days. http://scarela.com/2014-screening-room/

Rot said...

That stinks.
Maybe an email to the event coordinator?

It's only 7 minutes long : )
