Such is the fate of the killer in tonight’s selection who all by himself embodies mass murder and incidentally owes a fortune to the swear jar. His name is Horace Pinker and if you meet him he’s a real…"Shocker!"

At the current "14th Annual Screamfest 2014" taking place in Los Angeles Oct. 14 through Oct. 23 at the TLC Chinese 6 Theaters (for more info go to www.screamfestla.com) there has been a barrage of such mini-flicks big and small that have graced the scary silver screen.

It is in this dark and less travell...

But every once in a while a short passes through that not only makes the audience turn and take notice, but stands tall as a notable calling card for the person who made it. Such is the fate of a recent short I viewed a this year’s "14th Annual Screamfest LA" currently taking place in Los Angeles Oct. 14 through Oct. 23 at the TLC Chinese 6 Theaters (for more info go to www.screamfestla.com) titled ‘Evil Twin’, a action-packed, sci-fi sporting, martial arts infused thrill ride that has enough ...
