When cult-favorite horror filmmaker JT Petty ventures into the dark world of underground horror, things don’t exactly go as planned. As he examines the comparison between filmmaking and voyeurism within the horror genre, he uncovers a collective of filmmakers, deviants, and self-professed possible murderers. The most notorious underground film series he discovers is called S&MAN, produced by the unassuming and creepy Eric Rost. The more Petty digs into his subject, the more Eric withdraws, claiming a desire to protect his “creative vision.” But Petty begins to suspect that the real reason may be that Eric’s “actors” are in fact “victims,” placing the filmmaker in dangerous territory and making S&MAN the most unsettling horror experience in years.
See S&Man trailer below!

While at DragonCon 2010, we had an opportunity to talk briefly with John de Lancie. Those of you who listen to our annual Halloween Special should remember John (and Leonard) giving us special permission to include some "Alien Voices" programs in our special broadcast. For three years in a row we've been able to share with our listeners some of these fantastic Audio Dramas most of which are out of print. The two main questions we get from our listeners are "Where can we find Alien Voices?" and "When are they going to make more programs?" Well good news Alien Voices fans. John tells us in our interview that he and Leonard are discussing making these programs available again possibly as downloads from one or both of their websites. We'll post more information on this when it becomes available. Until then, enjoy the interview!

We just got back from our trip to Burbank, CA and what a trip it was. Monday, I met up with Jim O'Rear in Dallas for our connecting flight to Burbank. Once on the plane, Jim and I sat on opposing sides of our new friend Amber - an aspiring actress from Ohio who was in route to LA on her own dime for a somewhat sketchy sounding audition. Something just didn't sound right about the details of her audition and like Jim told Amber, "If something doesn't sound right, it probably isn't".

What do NASA, Boba Fett, boiled peanuts, and June 25th all have in common? That's right!
