The normal worries of a struggling small town farmer are blown away when the world is suddenly overrun by undead monsters. How can a good man protect and provide for his family in a hostile world without becoming a monster himself?
Sounds sweet (those of you who know me know that I'm a sucker for a zombie movie)! Currently in post production, we'll have all the news of 'Collapse' when a release date nears - stay tuned!

The scariest drive-in theatre in the world!
Originally uploaded by rhiannakelly
Cool pic - and I like the person's comment, too:
"The scariest drive-in theatre in the world! Not really, but at the time, it definitely felt like it. Total middle of nowhere N. Georgia, some dude's house that's in the middle of being built and absolutely noone else there but us. Yeah. The movie sucked, but the atmosphere was terrifying and perfect for Halloween weekend."

I chose this picture today because it reminded me a lot of the drive-in that I grew up with in my old home town in Iowa (not counting what look like mountains in the background). The Corral Drive-In had a similar screen and was situated in a grass field behind a few rows of trees, just like this one - at least as far as I can remember; although there would have been a barb-wire fence running along the property just past the big tree on the left at The Corral. It closed in 1989, and most of the property was taken over by a parking lot for the vacuum cleaner factory next door, but I imagine this is pretty close to what it would look like if it were still standing today...

"Hey gang... NFTS Productions is currently in the writing stages with author S.D. Hintz for a down and dirty (of course) in your face scare flick we are calling A HAUNTING ON EERIE STREET that will harken back to classic chillers like THE ENTITY (1982) and THIR13EN GHOSTS (2001) but 3 fold with our own twisted blend of Minnesota made horror!!! Another notable point of interest is my partner in crime Kevin Myhre will be taking over Directing duties while I sit back and reap the rewards of chilling out on set as just a Producer for thee 1st time ever!!! Yes, NFTS Productions has an all new beginning underway so get set for yet another bad ass ride into horror history hopefully sooner then later!!! cheers and blood drenched hailz... Jason"

P.S. I'm also not happy about Cusack's facial hair. Poe scholars will be the first to tell you that the poet didn't have a mustache until late in his life, and NEVER - as far as we know - EVER sported a goatee. C'mon! This goes against every known daguerreotype of Poe known to exist! Do your homework, people!

Abandoned drive-in theatre

One of my favorites:
From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

Abominable Snowmen: Legend Come to Life (1968)
Originally uploaded by erik_mona
We are covered with so much snow - like drifts up to my chest, with another five inches forecast today - that I'm getting a serious case of cabin fever. I've started looking for Yeti tracks in the snow just to make the monotony of winter more interesting. They're out there. God knows they're out there - watching...waiting...I've heard 'em holler - did I ever tell you that? That was back in '07 - summertime that was; I remember because I was holding my baby boy in my arms - he was only a week old. God awful yell loud enough to wake the dead. Sure scared the pants off of ME! Those things made a sound you only hear in your nightmares - a sound I never care to hear again. True story.

drive-in movie outside Buena Vista
Originally uploaded by shauna | glutenfreegirl
Not only is this a great picture, but I love the person's comment beneath it - it sounds like a little piece of poetry - something by Kerouac maybe. Imagine the great Beat poet racing down the highway, fueled on caffeine and Lord knows what else; jazz blaring on the radio as they tear past this giant screen off in the distance...
"We drove by this in a dream, going fast
toward Cottonwood Pass.
I'd like to see movies there some day."

The Cape tells the story of Vince Faraday, a good cop on a corrupt police force, who is framed for a series of murders and presumed to be dead. Forced to leave his wife and son and go into hiding, Faraday assumes the mantle of The Cape, his boy's favorite comic-book superhero, and begins taking the law into his own hands.
The two hour series premiere was on Sunday, Jan. 9, but I think its regular time slot will be at 9 p.m. Mondays starting next week. Catch it while it lasts - this is one of those shows that almost certainly won't be around for long...

Drive-In Movie Theater Screen
Originally uploaded by KB35
Not much info on this pic other than it's an old drive-in movie on historic Route 66 near Sapulpa, Oklahoma. I would presume this old boy is sadly another dead relic based upon the overgrown look of the lot - but looking at the condition of the screen and ticket booth, it looks like it could still be showing double features - both are in really good shape - just waiting for that right investor to come along with a little bit of nostalgia and a lot of money in his/her pockets to open it back up to its former glory.

"Both Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer were signed on shortly after Rob Zombie's HALLOWEEN 2 (H2) released in 2009 to pen the script for the third installment when production came to a halt. Since that time rumors of the film have swirled from the film being officially "dead in the water" to production starting this year. Sadly for those of you looking forward to a third film it is bad news."

All in all it was a ton of fun and a great way to spend the last day of Christmas vacation (even though I almost got frostbite on my fingers doing it!) Work will continue on this project as we re-work it and refine it - and shoot more scenes once the piles of snow melt! More to come...

This is nothing to be taken seriously - simply a cool little experiment in filmmaking that, if nothing else, will serve to illustrate just how complex making a motion picture can be - and will give us a better appreciation of the movies we review here at the Drive-In. This 'no-budget' project can't possibly begin until late spring, and as we're hip-deep in snow at the moment, I can't even attempt at getting a head start. Stay tuned for more updates on this project as we move forward in the coming months.
