Fade To Black

Story #1: The Origin of the Black Rose Killer

Meet Ethan Fernier.  He has a passion for horror movies - low budget ones in particular that were made by local director, Winston Korman.  What happens when that passion becomes an obsession?  What happens when that obsession is the only thing that keeps you sane and it is taken away from you?  What would make you kill?  Ethan knows and so will you in Spring 2003!   

Ethan Fernier (Joe Lauria) gets excited when producer Charles Walker (Glen Baisley) pays the flower shop a visit and places an order for his hero, director Winston Korman. 

Young Alice Walker (Brianna Nichols) meets Ethan Fernier (Joe Lauria) for the first time when he delivers flowers to Korman's auditions.  Winston tears up a classic issue of Fangoria to the tune of "who do you have to blow to get into this rag?"  We love Fangoria and assure you that this was all in good fun.

Ethan's deliverydoesn't go too well.  His world begins to shatter.  He races out the door and almost knocks down actress Morgan Reynolds (Suzi Leigh).

It's hard to stay sane with a mother like the one Doreen Valdati plays.  It's enough to give poor Ethan (Joe Lauria) nightmares of things to come.  We hope you get the point of this story.  Think about it for while and maybe you'll get it.

Mike Gingold (Winston Korman) plays kick for distance with a cat.  The joke's over and it's time to let the cat out of the bag.  In this case it's an Eeyore in the bag.

Mike tries to hire the the Black Rose Killer for manual labor.  This is what happens when you offer him minimum wage.

Run Forrest ... er Winston, run!

Elizabeth (Rachel Figliuzzi) pleads with her brother, Ethan.  Ethan is completely out of his gourd at this point. 

Brian Spears does a makeup test for his big death scene.  Ouch!  He could of had a V-8.  The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, the worms play pinochle on your ... wait where the hell is it?!

Hmm, bashing Mike Gingold with a fiberglass shovel and telling him it wouldn't hurt was fun but how can I burn off this extra energy?  Look ma, one hand!

Joe and Mike reenacting a scene from Lord of the Flies.  The gang hanging around celebrating a successful wrap.  Joe taking the hanging around thing just a bit too literally.
