In Development: A New Horror Screenplay

THE GOLEM: A horror concept that has been rattling around in my head for a long time finally found it’s way out of the darkplace and into the light.


The concept is a loose riff on an old Eastern European mythical creature (that has had many different iterations in the oral and written tradition).

My take is a bit more ... fleshy ... and visceral than its forerunners, and the story takes place in the modern day -- in a Mining Town in Eastern Pennsylvania. But like the earlier stories, the issues of class warfare and intergenerational strife play a large role.

An early draft of the script and an “accidental pitch” have generated interest. I’m totally excited about the possibilities and the material.
I'd love to say more about the story and the interested parties .... but I’ve been told not to just yet. So, I will be a good kid and try to forgo the immediate gratification for now. Probably a good thing cause there’s much work to be done ...

I’ll be getting this site ship-shape in the not too distant future. Though, other matters are taking priority at the moment. So, check back for news, and
hopefully a fun web presence in months to come....
