Red Clark's GRAY MATTER Teaser Trailer Is Old School Perfection
I first heard about someone making a short film out of Stephen King's short story Gray Matter at a horror movie marathon here in Chicago. That was over a year ago. Red Clark, the writer director happened to be there and I told him how enthusiastic I was about it. In true journalistic fashion I promptly forgot about the whole thing including a promise to keep in touch. I have felt guilty ever since.
Now I just feel stupid.
Red Clark has had a lot of fun since I last saw him. This trailer is a hoot. Full of practical effects, gory suspense and a Kingian sensibility it looks to be a solidly scary adaptation of the source material. It also has Larry Fessenden, and a pair of Chicago actors I know and admire in Aaron Christensen and Steve Herson who were both in the indie apocalyptic horror drama Dead Weight (2012).
As if the trailer weren't enough to whet the appetite, check out this amazing poster from Tom Hodge of The Dude Designs. He's the same guy that does all those nifty cardboard sleeves and alternate covers art for the those Shout and Scream Factory releases I've been ranting about this last year.
Ladies and Gentlemen- be careful who you drink with...
