Salem: The Series



    So looking forward to this! WGN America has produced a new series called Salem, focusing on the infamous Salem Witch Trials, probably the most intriguing part of American history, in my eyes. Unlike the play and film The Crucible, the series is proposing that actual witchcraft played a role in the trials and community during 1692. As someone who has grown up with a curiosity for the trials and its secrets, I've spent many years reading up on the subject. I've always wanted to see a show or film portray the trials more accurately, because the tension between the people involved is probably enough drama already. As fictionalized as this depiction of the trials looks however, it does seem like it's going to be pretty awesome! I look forward to the partial accuracies and the fictionalized fabrications and how they will all melt together. I'm not expecting it to be the best show on television, and hell, I may not like it after all, but I think it's worth a shot. If you've been dying for Halloween lately like I've been, this may be our fix!

Lizzie Borden Took an Axe...

... And you know the rest!
    Finally got the chance to check out Lifetime's Lizzie Borden Took and Axe, and I must say I was pretty impressed as far as TV movies go. I would have preferred better music, more true to the period, but eh, what can you do? Overall, I think the movie captured the incident fairly well, though I'm no historian. Christina Ricci was very good too and really brought to life the Lizzie that most people tend to believe DID kill her parents. Here's the trailer!



Oh, and here's this, because it's down right awesome.

In Over Your Head?

    I sure have been! Sorry for being away from the blog for so long! And sorry that all of my posts seem to be apologies from me about not being on my blog as often as I'd like. Sometimes I struggle trying to be in a million places at once; disneyland, school, improv, writing screenplays, and still trying to fulfill my haunter dreams. Either way, I always know that no matter how busy we become, our haunter life still awaits. Even when the season isn't here, even if we're too busy to post anything, or even if we haven't had the chance to create some great art in a long time. Anyway, just saying "Hello" again, and hoping all my favorite haunter folks are doing well. Your blogs are amazing and beautiful and continue to inspire me and encourage me. Thanks for always being frightful, my haunter friends!

As much as I love spring heading our way, I'm having major pumpkin carving withdrawals!

"Séance" at the CSU Media Arts Festival!



I'm super proud to announce that "Séance" will be screened in the Cal State University Media Arts Festival tomorrow! The screening will be at Cal State Fullerton in the Mihalyo Hall from 6:00 to 9:30 pm. I'm looking forward to our guest speaker Donald Petrie and can't wait to meet new people during the mixer and view all of the student films in the screening. I'm kind of interested to see how people react to the film; I've never shown it to a large group of people before, so who knows...
