Blog is live!

Hi! Welcome to Nightmare Fuel Theater, my new show! Episode 1, as you can see, is live! I had some fun with Watership Down, a movie that traumatized me as a kid.

It's funny, I remembered it differently...I could have SWORN I saw a bunny actually get run over. I must have bolted and assumed. Ah well, either way, that movie is Effed Up. It was kind of cool watching it as an adult, though... it's actually a very good movie, the animation is pretty, and the story's nicely involved with some great conflicts. Plus, John Hurt (Hazel) has a great voice, as does Michael Graham Cox (BigWig.) It's just not a good film for the sensitive child. Or adult, for that matter. I threatened to show it to my sister, who replied with a horrified squeal only dogs and maybe rabbits could hear. (Note: my sister is 30.)

I'm working on the next episode right now. It's a movie I remember watching several times as a young kid: The Water Babies. Watching it now, I'm wondering who spiked my Fruity Pebbles. This is BAD. So very bad. Hopefully, you will find my suffering amusing in the end!

Thanks for watching!


Special Note: For those of you who have come here from my work on Queens of King's, take heart- I DO plan on completing the story. It will be a motion comic, and at least the next episode will have a vocal track with it. I just don't have the time to put together the machinema these days. For those of you who would counter that I have the time for Nightmare Fuel Theater, I answer: Putting NFT together, start to finish, took me less time than it would take me to pull together the cast of QoK to do their dialogue. Programming an episode took anywhere from 2-4 weeks of 8-hour days... before having to edit it together. I just don't have that these days. Production of the motion comics will begin at the end of November, when I'll have the time to devote to remembering how to program enough to carry me through the process. Hell, I haven't even played CoH in ages. So, the story will be completed...just not now.

Nightmare Fuel Theater 1 - Watership Down

The series premier of Nightmare Fuel Theater, a show devoted to taking a good hard look at some twisted bits of children's cinema. Episode 1 takes on a movie about fascism, murder, war, suffocation, torture... and bunnies.
