Radio Play:
THE GRANDFATHER

Glass Eye Pix has been producing a weekly radio/podcast series of audio drama called “Tales From Beyond The Pale.” Curated by Glenn McQuaid (“I Sell The Dead”) and Larry Fessenden (“The Last Winter,” “Habit,” “Wendigo”), episodes have featured actors like Vincent D’Onofrio, Ron Perlman, James Le Gros, Kevin Corrigan, Joe Swanberg, and directors like Larry Fessenden, JT Petty, Joe Maggio, Glenn McQuaid and more.

My own episode, titled “The Grandfather,” features Angus Scrimm, best known as The Tall Man in the “Phantasm” series.  The cast also included Matt Huffman (“Satan Hates You”), Kate Sheil (Joe Swanberg’s upcoming “Silver Bullets”), Brenda Cooney (“I Sell The Dead”), and Michael D’Addario (Tom Stoppard’s “The Coast of Utopia).

I wrote, directed, sound designed and composed music for the piece.  It’s now available for purchase (2 bucks, less than a good cup of coffee!) at TalesFromBeyondThePale.com, go over and check it out!

Summary: “A perfectly ordinary Grandfather feeds his perfectly ordinary cat, waiting for his perfectly happy family to arrive for a perfectly pleasant afternoon… until an unfortunate revelation puts them all on a tragic path, if the Grandfather can’t unravel their perfect mess first.

From Graham Reznick, director of I CAN SEE YOU and the 3D short THE VIEWER, as well as the sound designer on a half a dozen Glass Eye Pix films comes this startling tale starring the venerable Angus Scrimm in the titualar role.”
