Do you want a DVD of Bloodsucking Redneck Vampires?
The first run of DVDs from Sub Rosa Studios/ is sold out! Sub Rosa plans to get more DVDs replicated, but they want to keep it off the market for a while so that when it's "fresh" when it comes out again. There are a few for sale on EBay and other sites, but fewer every day. If you want a copy, please e-mail me at and let me know. I will build a list and when new discs are available, I'll drop you a line. Here's the trailer!

We made the paper!

The Salem Statesman-Journl ran a big story in today's entertainment section about me, BRV and the Monster Movie Madness series. Check it out online at

Lloyd Kaufman give BRV Thumbs Up!

Well, he gives everything a thumbs up - that's his standard photo pose, but it's cool to have met him just the same!
The screening at Northern Lights Theater Pub was awesome. They showed BRV, then Rob Merickel and I did a little demonstration of using a melon with a wig on it for a smashed head effect. Lloyd was not only running late, but he had the second part of the double-feature with him! So the Mid-Valley Video Festival guys opted to turn the night into a Joe Sherlock double feature and show UNDERBELLY. Lloyd finally showed up after midnight, did some Q and A and took pictures. Good times!

The June 15 showing at the Northern Light Theatre Pub ( was a big hit! We packed the theater with only 5 seats to spare. Everyone seemed to dig the movie - they laughed at the right parts and recoiled in horror at the right parts! Six folks drove all the way down from Winlock, Washington (including Two Minute Miracle who did the title theme and other music for the movie). Cast members Rob Merickel (Lil' Junior), David C. Duncan (Jed), Robert J. Olin (B.J.) and Dale Wilson (Mr. Wilson) were all in attendance. I got to introduce the movie and take a few questions afterwards and they guys from the Mid-Valley Video Festival (who arranged the screening) bought me a beer - who could ask for a better evening! We may be working out a showing in Winlock, so stay tuned!

The Mike and Joe DVD commentary has been recorded. Mike's got a lot of CG work done and it's way cool! I am putting together a photo gallery for the DVD, as well as doing some final tweaking on the behind-the-scenes and bloopers featurettes. We just found out that our due date for materials has been moved up, so we are working hard to finish everything up quickly! Fangoria's website just listed a release date for the BRV DVD: September 28, 2004. We've got a "street date!" Woo hoo! If you would like to be alerted via e-mail when the DVD is available for pre-ordering, e-mail me.

A long promotional video for potential buyers is complete, and a traditional trailer will later be made by trimming this down. Work continues on music and sound effects, with CGI effects to be done sometime in May. Rob Merickel, who did fantastic make-up effects on top of playing the part of Lil Junior, recently sent over some of the digital pictures he took during our shoots in Winlock. Check the photos page!
