from the Graveyard

This is the kind of small, homegrown, labor of love festival I go out of my way to attend. Intimate and bloody and silly and beer-soaked, it's a fun and ridiculous evening shared with like-minded horror nerds, and the films themselves were impressive. Thanks to Ross and Randy for having me, and you can bet I'll be back!
Jacob Strunk
