Sicko-Psychotic Pre-Production Shot #6 (...and counting)

Previously, I stated that I had posted the last of these pre-production photos by Betsy Lutes-Eadeh. Well, that'll teach ya to trust a ghoul. I seemed to have missed two more, including this one... even though it has been floating around on other websites. Notice that my portrait hasn't yet been added to the frame behind me.

SP Pre-Production Shot #5

This is the last of this batch of pre-production shots. At the time, I had no idea how useful a shovel would be for storytelling. I've become quite fond of it.

14th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards

The ballot for the 14th Annual Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards is up at!!! As usual, there are a slew of wonderfully horror-ific nominees that are worth familiarizing oneself with. I, for one, felt it was a great year for monster publications and I had a difficult time choosing who to vote for. Actually, I found myself in the same predicament in other categories... whew! But I enjoyed every minute of it. So have a blast voting for your favorites and discovering new contributors to our cherished world of HORRORS.

SP Pre-Production Shots #3 & 4

More pre-production test shots before we began filming the Sicko-Psychotic show. Having green fingers turned out to be quite awkward when you have to touch things all the time, so we changed the gloves. However, these fingerless gloves will still be used for the occasional episode, such as EP 3 when I have to dip my finger in the cooking pot and lick it. Don't ask... just watch....

Sicko-Psychotic: Season 1 Episode 1 CLIP

Here's a scene from Season 1 Episode 1 "Something Sick & Twisted This Way Comes". Sicko-Psychotic and Silky Harlot just moved into the Sick-Shack, murdered the previous tenant, and trapped his soul inside a camera obscura. Cameo, of course, is not happy about this. Nor does he relish having to project horror films for Sicko's amusement. Furthermore, Sicko begins to suspect that Cameo has a dark secret.

The second of a series of pre-production photographs taken by Betsy Lutes-Eadeh. Although the makeup and gloves didn't make it into the first episode, the large crate certainly did.
