Received good news today. Heard back from the cemetery we scouted earlier this month that we have permission to shoot there. This cemetery is perfect for what we want to shoot. It is creepy, old, and rundown…just like Evans City. That means that this Saturday we are a go. I will be shooting my first zombie action scene and i cannot wait. I have written up my shot selection and have gone over it several times. I have played the scene over in my head since I finished writing it and know that it’s gonna be well received.
Also, our raffle tickets are selling nicely. Be sure to get yours before they are gone. You could win an iPod Touch. It’s an incredible gadget and a lot of fun. You don’t have to be present to win and the proceeds go to funding For Love of Zombies. So order your tickets now, only $5 each or 5 for $20. Click HERE to order.

I am only a week away from filming some zombie goodness. I am a huge fan of the zombie genre and I have waited my entire life to get to this point. Granted it’s only a short scene that I am filming for a webisode but it is still zombie footage nonetheless. This will be a great test for our zombie make up and some of our gore effects, because oh yes…there will be gore. Miranda has been working hard cooking up some incredible make up effects. I love working with Miranda because of her dedication to her craft and her creativity. But above all else, her ability to come up with things on the fly is amazing. She truly is the MacGyver of special effects make-up. I have a great actor, George Scully, playing the cemetery caretaker. He is a fellow geek and is truly psyched and amped up to do this. I know he is gonna be great.
The scene I am filming next Saturday requires 5 zombies and I put out a call on the For Love of Zombies Facebook page as well as my personal Facebook page and got 113 emails. Wow. I never knew so many people were so eager to be zombies. I hope that many people turnout to our zombie casting call May 8th at The Rail Bar in Richland NJ. That is when we will be casting all of our zombies for the actual For Love of Zombies film. This is your one and only chance to be cast in the film. Unless you have already invested through IndieGoGo or ebay. Then your spot is secure and not to mention the truckload of For Love of Zombie swag you will receive for investing in our little project.
Our Brains and Beer event is right around the corner. Tickets are only 10 bucks and that gets you a buffet dinner and one beer. The even will be held at the Rail Bar in Richland NJ on May 8th. We will also be raffling off an iPod touch that night. Tickets are only $5 or 5 for $20. Click HERE to order.

After a weekend of working on the Grindhouse Radio page I think I finally have it close to the way I want it. I am still working out a couple of bugs I have encountered with the FLoZ trailer playing on Internet Explorer. In the meantime head on over to www.grindhouse-radio.com and check out archived episodes of The Random Ass Podcast and some of my earlier radio work including interviews with William Katt, Courtney Gains, and Kristina Klebe.
We are also featuring an old time horror radio show from the golden age of radio. This weeks episode is titled “Poltergeist” and it is sure to make your spine tingle. We will feature a new old time radio show each week as well as debuting a new Random Ass Podcast so check back with www.grindhouse-radio.com often to catch up with the latest news and fun.
“Then this other guy, the thirteenth guy, comes crashing right into me. Even with all that was going on I thought, Drug addict. He was pale and sweaty, stank like raw sewage, and had a glazed bug-eyed stare. Sick bastard even tried to bite me, but the Kevlar pads on my sleeve saved my gun arm…..”

A roller coaster ride of a book (and I hope one day it is seen on the big screen) author of Patient Zero, Jonathan Maberry will be the featured guest this week on GrindHouse Radio. We have a ton of questions to ask him about his current book, Patient Zero as well as his Bram Stoker Award nominated book, CSU: Forensics of the Living Dead. He is even involved in the Marvel Comic Universe as well! This Friday should be an awesome show!!!
First off I would like to thank Kristina Klebe for calling into the show and spending an hour with us. She was a great guest and we look forward to having her on again. If you haven’t heard the interview head on over to www.grindhouse-radio.com and click on the March 6th Grindhouse Radio broadcast and listen to the interview. The first hour of the show is also available, it had to be seperated because we couldn’t upload it properly together.
The interview has been downloaded a ton of times and we had our highest listenership online to date for the live interview on Friday night. Our show continues to grow in listenership and we can’t thank all of you enough. Keep listening.
We will continue to deliver a great show and high caliber guests going forward. Thanks again for listening.
