Weâ€™re big fans of the horror and sci-fi genres. Whether itâ€™s books, movies or some spooky tunes, we revel in the macabre and mystical. So when we got a call from the hilarious and multi-talented horror filmmaker William Butler, we couldnâ€™t wait to go on a Dark Ride with his new production company.
Butler and his partners, John Vulich (a man who can fill a mantel with all of the Emmy awards he’s won for his work doing makeup and special effects for two of our all-time favorite TV shows, â€œThe X-Filesâ€ and â€œBuffy the Vampire Slayerâ€) and Peter Garcia (another Emmy Award winner in his own right) have established Dark Ride Entertainment as a new vision in quality, cost-effective genre films. After all, the best chillers (think: Romero, Argento, even the recent Paranormal Activity) have cost little to no money to make.
With their entire ambitious first slate of eight films fully funded by their investors, Struans Media, Dark Ride are prepping their first project, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi/horror film titled â€œHell Storm.â€ Weâ€™re pretty sure it involves things eating people. And lots of blood.
The movie begins filming this summer in L.A. Weâ€™re ready for our close-up, Mr. Butler.
