Posted in Uncategorized on July 31, 2017 by Justin Sane

WOW! I forgot to post it here, but if you’ve kept up with my creative endeavors you may know that I wrote a screenplay adaptation of my graphic novel HEART OF A CORPSE. Well, I decided to enter it into the Academy’s Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting competition, and out of over 7,000 scripts entered, it made it through to the Quarterfinals – that’s the top 5%! Can’t wait to see if it makes the next round, but the Quarterfinals are a huge honor nonetheless! I’ll keep everyone updated on the progress when the screenplays that make the next round are announced!

BLOODMANIA Press Release 

Posted in Uncategorized on March 2, 2017 by Justin Sane

 I’m honored to have written a part of The Godfather of Gore’s final film! Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BLOODMANIA has been picked up for distribution and will be available this Spring!

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                Herschell Gordon Lewis’ final film to be distributed by Monarch Films Inc.

Diabolique Films, and HGB Entertainment Ltd, are pleased to announce the signing of an exclusive worldwide distribution deal with Monarch Films Inc. for their horror anthology, “Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania.”

“Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania” is the final film by legendary horror director Lewis, affectionately known as the “Godfather of Gore”, who passed away in late 2016, after a career in film spanning over fifty years.

“I am very excited to add Mr. Lewis’ final film to the quality package of new films we will be premiering at MIP 2017. We have already heard from many of our key TV and DVD buyers worldwide expressing their interest in licensing “BloodMania” for their territories. We will be making “BloodMania” available to horror fans worldwide via Amazon Prime and dozens of additional VOD, PPV, and streaming platforms later this spring”.

Art Skopinsky

President, Monarch Films

Diabolique Films and HGB Entertainment Vice President and Producer James Saito says, “It is extremely gratifying to work with Monarch Films to bring Herschell’s final film to his loyal international fan base, and to introduce his work to a whole new generation of horror fans.”

The horror anthology film consists of four tales – each representing a different genre of classic horror cinema. Lewis himself described the film as, “… a perfect combination of horror and comedy”.

Mr. Lewis wrote and directed two segments. The other two were directed by Melanie Reinboldt and Kevin Littlelight. The anthology stars Roger LeBlanc, Stuart Bentley, Sonia Deleo and Caroline Buzanko.

A release date for “Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania” will be announced shortly.

 “All of my movies can be traced back to the work of H.G. Lewis” – Eli Roth (Director of “Cabin Fever”, “Hostel”, “The Green Inferno”)

“A new film from Herschell Gordon Lewis is a treat for all horror fans!” – Tom Holland (Director of “Fright Night”, “Child’s Play”)

Charley & Humphrey Live!

Posted in Uncategorized on January 17, 2017 by Justin Sane

In case you were unaware, my co-conspirator John Hageman (artist on The Woodland Welfare Manifesto) and I have been putting together a comic book entitled CHARLEY & HUMPHREY, based on the television characters created by Pat McCormick! 

These two rascals – a cantankerous horse and his sweetly naive, but well-meaning, bulldog sidekick, were staples of Bay Area TV for decades, before retiring some 30-odd years ago. With Pat’s blessing, it is our privilege to reintroduce these beloved icons back to the world in CHARLEY & HUMPHREY – illustrated by John Hageman and written by myself! 

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s to come in Issue #1!
