2014 Updates

12/29/14 Here’s a rather silly movie I was in waaaaay back in 2001.  This is a must for all pro wrestling fans as well as Long Islanders familiar with Deer Park Ave. Slice of Life Films presents, Son of Hulk. 

12/14/14 This is where I dissect Nirvana’s On a Plain. Here’s the breakdown: 

-So unclear yet clear

-The definition of plain

-Crying on command

-Randomness of the lyrics (what the hell is he trying to say)

-Writer’s interpretation vs. listeners interpretation

-Pearl Jam’s Alive tangent

-Evolution of the meaning of songs

-Melody of the song

-Grohl’s backing vocals

12/5/14When Full Moon Rising (lead role of Jimmy Wayne Garrick) was released in Germany, we were given the dub treatment. So check out another actor’s interpretation of my performance . . . in German!

11/29/14Click here for a Behind the Scenes look at The Perfect Pair (lead role of The Man), coming soon to a film festival near you.

11/22/14Don’t stay away from my podcast about Stay Away. Have a listen to continuing analysis of Nirvana’s Nevermind. Here’s the breakdown:

-The first second got cut off. D’oh!
-How listening to Stay Away in a different way totally changed my opinion about the song
-My Rob Zombie tangent
-My tangent from the Rob Zombie tangent
-Back to the Rob Zombie tangent
-Back to how listening to this song in a different way totally changed my opinion
-The sound of the song; the soothing guitar sound, the snare and rhythm
-How Nirvana practicing made perfect
-I’m all about that bass?
-Onto the lyrics! How I feel this is about anxiety and Cobain predicting his future
-God is gay!

11/21/14In love and in laundry, we always look for that match. FlickGorilla presents the trailer for The Perfect Pair (lead role of The Man).

11/21/14See how Glen Baisley and I laughed so uncontrollably that we both got six pack abs. Enjoy the bloopers from Full Moon Rising.

11/14/14The conclusion to Full Moon Rising (lead role of Jimmy Wayne Garrick) is now available for FREE online, right HERE. You actually get to see my "full moon" as well.

11/7/14Part II of Full Moon Rising (lead role of Jimmy Wayne Garrick) is now available. Enjoy the continuing saga of a man who, after being bitten by a dog, believes he’s turning into a werewolf. There is blood in this one.

11/6/14I play an incredibly silly role of a man being dumped in this instructional video on how to be an asshole. This incredibly silly video is now in The Tiny Film Festival and needs YOUR VOTE to advance.

So don’t be an asshole – vote!

10/31/14Twelve years ago I played a man who, after bitten by a dog, believes he’s turning into a werewolf. Ten years ago, the movie was released and distributed worldwide on DVD (what are those?). Now this movie is available for free in all it’s really, really, really, micro-budget glory (but in High Definition – Wow!).

9/15/14 – In 2002 I was the lead in Full Moon Rising, which was a short story featured in the movie The Tenement. Released in 2004, The Tenement landed a distribution deal and was pretty well received.

Ten years later, Full Moon Rising is being re-released for FREE on the internet with a new ending on Halloween. Wow!

So take a peek at the Tales of Light & Dark Season 2: Full Moon Rising Teaser and have fun revisiting this gem in all its (very, very) low budget glory.

8/10/14 – Song By Song: Nevermind returns with my analysis of Lounge Act.

I talk about:

-How the song begins

-My earworm

-Why not knowing facts about the background of a song might be a good thing

- I think Lounge Act is about a relationship, but not the usual kind of relationship.

-How this commentary brought made me rediscover Neverminds greatness.

6/21/14 This episode of Song By Song presents a new format where I read the lyrics of Nirvana’s Drain You and go through it line by line. Wow! Below is a list of my musings:

-The difference get from reading lyrics instead of singing them.

-How I realized that this could be a love song

-Why this reminds me of Freedom Rock (turn it up man)

-The guitar tone and emotion

-How I got some lyrics and not others

-Cobain the feminist

-My real life example in relation to the lyrics

-The guitar tone again

5/15/2014 Behold the definitive, absolute, final, very last, ultimate, special edition, director's cut of Dead Drunk (until the feature length). Enjoy yours truly as a zombie who craves beer. Beer!

-The lyrics that stand out to us,

-If Kurt would be happy about Nirvana's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction

4/18/14May my new commentary on Nirvana’s live performance of "Lithium" at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards hit you over the head just like Krist Noveselic's bass.

4/11/14 – Check out some MORE Behind the Scenes of Dead Drunk where you almost see me out of makeup. I can't believe it's been a year.

4/9/14 – The new Song By Song is out now where I give my thought’s on Nirvana’s "Breed." Hear me trip and cough over my words at the beginning since I’m battling burn out and running myself ragged overall. I also touch on my "club" days as a teenager as well as the new appreciation of this album due to headphones.

4/1/14 – Song By Song continues with "Come As You Are". Hear me describe my '90s teenage metalhead (and mullethead) mindset when it came to Nirvana. Other musings will be heard as well.

Enjoy!

3/25/14 – Feast your ears on my thoughts regarding Nirvana’s "In Bloom". I used my phone to record this and forgot to mute my incoming text beep. At around :40 you hear said beep. D'oh.

3/21/2014 – Selenophobia: Fear of the Moon is back online! Find out why my character is really afraid of that moon (hint: it has something to do with his wife).

3/20/2014 – I started a podcast where I talk about the songs from some of my favorite albums. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" from Nirvana's Nevermind is up first. My technologically impaired ass should have In Bloom up next week.

Enjoy my ramblings, comment away, and maybe some time this year I'll upload it to iTunes.

2/27/14 – Click this link for a behind the scenes look at GeoKilling.  I had a small role in this flick but contributed to some work on the crew (look at those guns holding the boom mic).  It was a long, grueling but fun shoot and the video captures that.

Spoilers are ahead so before watching the behind the scenes, make sure you watch parts one and two (which features yours truly in a cameo).

2/20/14 – Watch me do very bad things in a cameo for GeoKilling Part II. Since I’m in Part II feel free to watch Part I so you know what’s happening. To sum it all up:

10/31/12 – Reasons why you should BUY Fairview Falls:

1. I'm in it. Duh. But this was shot in 2004 so I was 20 pounds heavier and had a gap in my two front teeth. You can laugh at as well as with me.

2. The extras. There are SO MANY EXTRAS. Even if you hate the movie, the extras really hit home regarding the plight of making a low budget independent movie. There are so many stories about the making of this thing that your head will spin.

3. It's The Breakfast Club meets Stand By Me meets Friday the 13th. Cool!

4. Did I mention I'm in it?

10/28/12 - Before the power goes out for my east coast friends, you all must listen to FLiCKGORiLLA's Podcast #2.

You can look at pictures while you listen too! Wow!

10/27/12 – Check out what the Nerd Remix review of Selnophobia: Fear of the Moon (supporting role of John).

… an extremely well made short film, superbly acted by Mike Lane and the ethereally gorgeous Louisa Ward. I was amazed at the ability of the two leads to deliver an emotional, wrenching performance without the benefit of actual dialogue. This is how it’s done! Kudos to Polizzi and his stellar cast of two on managing to really stand out amid a collection of very well done shorts."

10/15/12 – Dead Drunk (lead role of The Dead Drunk) will be playing The New York City Horror Film Festival on November 7th at 7:30pm.

*Gallery Of Fear (supporting role of Principal Royce) will be ready for screenings by mid-Fall.

5/20/10 – I am featured in Jedi Junkies due to my role in Tremors of the Force (supporting role of Vector Gambit). Jedi Junkies can be watched for FREE on www.dailymotion.com until May 26th. After the 26th, check out the website www.jedijunkies.com for more information.

2/8/10 – Not only did Bloodtype Online call Shock Festival PERFECT, the reviewer was also impressed with Girlkiller (supporting role of Darby Silver). The full review is below:
http://www.bloodtypeonline.com/s181.htm 

1/28/10 – Here's a great review of Insatiable (lead role of Derek) from Fatally-Yours.com: 
". . . all of the actors give amazing performances that really sell the film. Considering they had to use just their movements and facial expressions to convey emotion, they did a phenomenal job. I loved everyone’s performance, to Mike Lane’s brooding, obsessed serial killer, to Zoë Daelman Chlanda as the concerned wife to Raine Brown as the mysterious woman with a few tricks up her sleeve!" 
Read the rest right here.

1/24/10 – Girlkiller (supporting role of Darby Silver) will be shown at Anthology Film Archives (32 2nd Ave., New York, NY) on Saturday, January 30th at 10pm. Behold the info below:

-Featuring Ian McCulloch (Zombie), Ruby Larocca (Shadow: Dead Riot), Christine Spencer (Satan Hates You), ME as a man with a hammer fetish AND gratuitous gore and nudity.
Now how can you not see this grindhouse trailer? 
See you Saturday!

1/23/10 – Sex Gore Mutants praises Girlkiller (supporting role of Darby Silver).
Yay Sex Gore Mutants! 
Look for GIRLKILLER on the Shock Festival DVD set which will be in stores February 9th. 
"GIRLKILLER is directed by Fangoria's own Michael Gingold and is
energetic, gory stuff (they're all righteously gory affairs, it has to
be said). A great surprise in this one is seeing Ian McCulloch (ZOMBIE
FLESH EATERS; CONTAMINATION) pop us as a detective on the trail of the titular murderous vixen. Though little more than a high-octane montage of dialogue-free gore scenes, this looks fabulous in it's own right and, again, my heart bleeds that this isn't advertising a genuine film."

9/16/09 – Even though I am in the movie for 15 seconds, my bloated carcass made the back cover of the Sins of the Father DVD since my character's father tries to find out who murdered me.  I reprised the role of Michael Jacobs from a previous Light and Dark movie, Fear of the Dark.

I am also part of the commentary since I was a creative consultant on the movie.  Even if you hate the movie, you will love the commentary and the other extras.  Therefore you have no excuse not to buy it. 

The movie comes out 12/1 AND the trailer will be shown in NYC THIS FRIDAY!  Check out the Fangoria.com article for more information.

It was a gory, action filled romp which will open Blood Fest 6 on 10/24, at the Queens Library, 41-17 Main St. in Flushing from Noon to 5pm. 

Most importantly, it was a tribute and one of many goodbyes to the late Joe Lauria, who was supposed to play the Black Rose Killer today. Jude Pucillo, who replaced Joe, would have made him so proud. 

Here's to Joe.

http://tinyurl.com/mc58u6

8/4/09 Caroline Williams, actress from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and Rob Zombie's Halloween II, on Insatiable  (lead role of Derek):

6/12/09 – Check out Fangoria.com’s article about Insatiable (lead role of Derek)  Here’s a quote:

“Sporting an impressive cast of indie faves like Mike Lane, as a serial killer of women with a bloodsucking fetish, Zoe Daelman Chlanda as his unsuspecting wife and Raine Brown as his potential next victim, the film is a perfect example of the family that the New York-area independent horror scene has become, with Perry dipping into the pool of talent he met on another noteworthy director’s shoot.”

In the meantime, here’s the TRAILER.

5/13/09 – In an interview with Fangoria.com Alan Rowe Kelly says some kind words: 

PART I excerpt: 

 “. . . with Susie Adriensen, Terry M. West, Josh Nelson, Mike Lane, Brian Juergens and Michael Gingold added to the mix, it was like a party being shot everyday. It was almost too much fun making that one." 

PART II excerpt: 

"Speaking of actors, who are your rep company, and how did they find their way to the Alan Rowe Kelly universe?

KELLY: I pinch myself when I realize the pool of talent that surrounds me and actually “want” to work with me.

My main core of actors are Jerry Murdock, Katherine O’Sullivan and Zoe Daelman Chlanda, who started out with me 10 years ago on BURY. From there came Mike Lane, Terry M. West, Susan Adriensen . . . There is so much talent here and they’re always up for a challenge. I always write characters with certain actors in mind because they are so versatile and want to do something different every time. That’s the New York actor for you!"

 "But I’ll tell you my secret, Sean. I see no reason to work with someone I don’t like..."

 "I only work with folks I consider professional, respectful, fun and full of talent."

 “I just completed my horror anthology GALLERY OF FEAR with Chicago horror filmmaker Anthony G. Sumner...I wrote and directed three segments, CRITIC’S CHOICE with Debbie Rochon, DOWN THE DRAIN with Jerry Murdock, Raine Brown and Mike Lane.”

4/30/09 – Dread Central gives Insatiable a good review.  Excerpts are below and read the whole review here

"All in all, "Insatiable" is a solid and entertaining short."

"... I really enjoyed the subtlety of it. This is one that gets better and better with repeated viewings.”

"'Insatiable' is currently making the festival rounds, so if it's playing at a horror fest near you, you might want to get a ticket … or two so you can watch it again!"

 
4/10/09Insatiable director Scott W. Perry has some kind words about me in his interview with Staugnews:

Casting the film was fun. I met Mike Lane and Zoe Daelman Chlanda on the set of Alan Rowe Kelly’s film “The Blood Shed” and was impressed by their performances. When it came time to get “Insatiable” together, they agreed to do the roles. I met Raine Brown while asking for an interview for my Colonel’s Crypt website and she loved the script. For acting without using any dialogue, they had to rely on their emotions and I felt all three did a phenomenal job.

Read the whole interview HERE.


4/9/09
– Alan Rowe Kelly, director of The Blood Shed (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion) and Down the Drain (supporting role of Principal Royce), in an interview with Horror Society says:

"I realized that everything occurring on set of THE BLOOD SHED was a reaffirmation that I made the right decision to become a filmmaker. Never was there a film set so fun, so free of ego and temperament, and yet so very serious and creative a collaborative. THE BLOOD SHED was never ‘MY’ film. It became everyone’s film involved – from the wonderfully talented actors, music composer, editor, and producers, make up artists, art director and cinematographer. We kept saying amongst ourselves - “this shouldn’t be this fun…something is wrong!” LOL! It was one the best film experiences ever and that will last me all my days." 

Plus, to top it off, we have the greatest range of horror indie notables starring in GALLERY OF FEAR like Terry M. West, Jerry Murdock, Zoë Daelman Chlanda, Katherine O’Sullivan, Raine Brown, Robert Norman, Benzy, Debbie DeVerde, Susan Adriensen, Joshua Nelson, Terry Shane, Don Money, Sandra Schaller, Mike Lane, and, hell yeah, I’m in it too!”

"I know for a fact that the next time someone asks me if I have watched anything good, I will say 'I haven’t seen anything good, but I saw something great: The Blood Shed by Alan Rowe Kelly.'”

“[the] cast does relatively well with the material. Lane and Chlanda both appeared together earlier in the highly entertaining redneck horror flick, The Blood Shed and Raine Brown (who’s been busy in tons of b-movies including the upcoming remake of Don’t Look in the Basement!) brings a "can’t put my finger on it attraction to her character in her brief screen time."

“. . . the reprehensible constitution of THE BLOOD SHED will

have you rolling in the aisles - albeit dirty, sticky ones

where the three second rule certainly wouldn’t apply. 


The gene pool of this comedic cult horror flick may

be tainted but the talent pool certainly isn’t. 


Kelly’s crew knows the devil is in the details and it’s a

concept that comes through laughingly loud and clear in

sublime performances and the stomping ground they created

for the rollicking, cantankerous Bullions.”

An excerpt is below:

“With boobs from the very first moment and tasteless humor, we knew it was gonna rule. From the scene where one of the many killers cuts off a dude’s hand so he can more easily use his arm to fist this nearly-dead, blood-covered chick to the Jesus ass raping a hot blonde scene to the hot threeway with a supersexy lesbian vampire to the rapist ventriloquist dummy who loves eating pussy, we were pleased as fucking punch.”

Production on Insatiable, the latest from Scott W. Perry, has just wrapped and has entered post-production!

The short horror film stars Mike Lane of The Blood Shed as Derek, a serial killer with an infatuation with vampires. Draining his victims of blood, he stores it and develops an obsession with a mysterious young woman played by scream queen Raine Brown who he starts seeing after committing his murders. Zoë Daelman Chlanda also stars as Derek’s unsuspecting wife who slowly starts to see her husband’s vicious dark side.

1/30/08 – The Video Graveyard loved The Blood Shed (principal role of Hubcap Bullion).  Excerpts are below.  Read the whole review here.

“. . . his [Alan Rowe Kelly’s] script’s satirical bent and outrageousness pairs perfectly with a great cast who attack their roles with aplomb.”

“Let’s just say you’ve never met a family quite like them – this is possibly the winningest cast of redneck psychos to populate this type of film . . .”

“. . . one of the most f*cked-up birthday parties ever committed to film.:

“. . . this is a movie that balances a great tone with top notch acting and stylish direction.”

“If you’re looking for an offbeat, off-the-beaten track way to spend an evening then you owe it to yourself to pick-up a copy of The Blood Shed. I know I can’t wait to see what Kelly can come up with next and, after seeing this, perhaps you won’t be able to either.”

1/20/08 – Read an interview I gave with Dave’s Horror Review at http://davesnewsandreviews.blogspot.com/2008/01/10-questions-formike-lane.html 
 

1/14/08 - The Blood Shed (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion) will be playing at the “Best Of Dark Carnival 2007” The show starts at 7pm at the Cinemat In Bloomington, Indiana.

 -Excerpts from MySpace Film Community’s review of The Blood Shed are below.  Read the whole review here. 

“The Blood Shed is a surprisingly good and twisted throwback to the expoitation/grindhouse genre.” 

“. . . the Bullion clan is one of the most sick and twisted families that I’ve seen in the horror genre . . .”

 “Gorehounds won’t be disappointed here.”

 “They [the actors] had good chemistry with each other and looked like they were having a good time making the film.” 

“The Blood Shed is a shockingly demented horror film that will make you think twice before messing with the Bullion family.”
 

1/10/08 - Check out the nice words from Alan Rowe Kelly at http://davesnewsandreviews.blogspot.com/2008/01/10-questions-foralan-rowe-kelly.html

Excerpts are below.  The Blood Shed (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion) is available NOW:

“I have added the great talents of Joshua Nelson, Terry M. West, Mike Lane, Susie Adriensen, Don Money, Robert Norman, Sandra Schaller and Benzy to my acting roster!  I have to admit I have been extremely fortunate in the acting department as far as the talent I have been able to assemble.  They give their all, believe in my projects and are pretty fearless in the chances they take once the camera rolls.  I think they trust me enough to know that I would never let anything less than their best takes appear on screen.  We’ve really become quite a close-knit family.  That’s the best reward.”


1/3/08 – Happy New Year!  Let’s ring in 2008 with a great review of The Blood Shed (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion).  Dave’s Horror Review gives it 5 out of 5 stars.  Click here to read the whole review.  Excerpts are below:

“. . . you can really tell the actors relish their roles, playing it up as effectively as ever.”

“Plenty of violence, B-movie gore and black humor make The Blood Shed easily one of my favorite movies of 2007.”

“The Blood Shed drips ***** out of *****.  It’s a perfect movie!”

2007 Updates

12/29/07 - The Blood Shed (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion) makes Short Ends and Leader’s list of The Top 10 Films of 2007 That You Never Heard Of.  We’re number 4!  Read the whole article here  Check out some excerpts:

“. . . wonderfully weird . . .”

“. . . strikes an intriguing balance between scares, stupidity, and satire.”

“a cinematic concoction of kitsch, creeps, and dollar store perfume, and paints a perverted patina over every last piece of lunatic fringe. The results are resplendent.”

“. . . when you consider the untold number of direct to DVD films available, finding a group of praise worthy productions remains a daunting task.”

“They [all 10 movies] add up to one amazing set of movies, a collection of creativity the likes of which many of you have never seen.”
 

12/16/07 - Check out Icons of Fright's review of The Blood Shed (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion) by clicking here.  Excerpts are below: 

“However, what separates “The Blood Shed” from the half-past a dozen other movies that have tried the over-the-top horror comedy routine is the real talent behind, and in front of, the camera.” 

“A film like this can and will often exhaust it's audience once the novelty of the humor and the camp wears off, but because the writing is clever, the direction efficient, and the acting excellent it never wears you down.” 

“There's plenty of scenery chewing, “camp-it-up” moments available for the actors in this film, but they also know how to hold back just enough to make their performances funny, demented but never annoying.” 

“. . . a solidly twisted, gory, retarded good time.” 
 

12/10/07 – SliceofSciFi.com loved The Blood Shed (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion): 

“. . . lots of gore, lots of blood and LOTS OF FUN!” 

“. . . everyone played it to the hilt making an enjoyable camp gore-fest . . .”

“. . . loving every minute of its over-indulged weirdness.” 

“featured an all-star cult genre cast . . . “ 

“If you are looking for a film done in the old grand Troma style of camp that doesn’t take itself seriously, but is seriously performed and produced, then like me, you will love “The Blood Shed.”

12/6/07 – Read and interview with The Blood Shed’s (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion) writer/director Alan Rowe Kelly at http://www.pretty-scary.net/article1172.html  Here is an excerpt: 

“Plus with the new additions of Joshua Nelson, Susie, Mike Lane, Terry M. West and Sandra Schaller from THE BLOOD SHED, I feel that future films with all of these actors in the right roles can develop into a very popular acting troupe of horror actors – much like the fabulous B icons of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s that dominated most of those great Roger Corman and Curtis Harrington classics. These directors always stuck with the same troupe of talent and never had them play the same roles twice. Makeup, hair and wardrobe change makes for a complete transformation in any great actor and they’re always happy to be given the opportunity to slip into another person’s skin. I’m simply thinking ahead and surrounding myself with great talent (who also make me look better too!) LOL!  I ain’t no fool!”
 

12/2/07 EvilDread.com liked my performance in The Blood Shed

“The family personally annoyed me minus one of the brothers, Hubcap, who made me laugh quite a bit with his stupidity. Now you ask how is his stupidity that funny? Guess you'll have to see yourself, just know that he's not your typical moron.”
 

12/1/07 The Blood Shed’s writer/director Alan Rowe Kelly is interviewed by Rogue Cinema.  Here are some excerpts: 

Who was involved in the casting for the film? The people who were cast to play the inbred, cannibalistic Bullion family were just incredible. Where'd you find these people? 

I do all the casting for my films – since I write my own screenplays, I already have my ideas for the look and physicality of my characters. 

It’s vitally important for me to be sure that every character is filled by actors who not only gives me what is written in the script, but also has the sense and drive to take that character into their own world and make them their own. 

I want to work with actors who contribute to their role – not just spout out dialogue and worry if they look good. I don’t write about ‘pretty people’. 

My actors have to be comfortable enough in their own skin and secure enough in their own abilities to trust my instincts once I take them into the editing room. That’s why I work with the same family of actors such as Jerry Murdock, Zoë Daelman Chlanda, Katherine O’Sullivan, Robert Norman, Joshua Nelson, Susan Adriensen, Mike Lane, Don Money and Terry West. They are actors - and damn good ones! 

You've got several films that have either been completed or are in production since The Blood Shed. Tell us about those films, when they'll be all be released and what we can look forward to in them. 

I’m presently immersed in writing THE HOLLOWS, an eerie 6-part web series that revolves around a haunted area of Indian burial grounds and ancient folklore. We plan to commence shooting in March 2008 and will spread the episodes out thorough 2008.  Jerry Murdock, Zoë Daelman Chlanda, Katherine O’Sullivan, Raine Brown, Debbie Rochon, Keith Fraser, Jessie May Laumann, Randy Jones (Yes! The hot cowboy from The Village People!), Benzy, Terry West, Joshua Nelson, Mike Lane, Joe Davison and Brinke Stevens making appearances. I’m totally thrilled to have these great talents on board. I’ll also be working as a crewmember on Scott W. Perry’s horror short INSATIABLE this December/January with Jeremiah Kipp, Mike Lane, Raine Brown and Zoë Daelman Chlanda!

“The actors are great in their parts, they just all seem to be making slightly different movies. Characters mix like jellybeans — the results are unexpected but almost always tasty. Somehow it works in context, adding even more flavor to an already surreal atmosphere.”

“. . . the art design and style is so gorgeous, the acting so good, and the humor SO funny that it is hard to imagine something done so many times before could turn out good this time around. But it does. It turns out really good. Expect a certain level of the abnormal going in, and you’ll only be pleasantly surprised.”

“I'm actually in a bit of a daze as I sit down to pen this review, as "The Blood Shed" has not only ripped open my head and beaten my brain with a meat tenderizer, but apparently someone also decided to make potty inside my head as well. What an absolute MIND SCREW!! I LOVED IT!!” 

“. . . a helluva fun ride and I must have guffawed 17 times while watching the on-screen revelry. Kudos to Heretic Films for putting out such truly original filmmaking for audiences worldwide to enjoy in the comforts of their own home. Here's hoping this film gets all the attention and applause it so absolutely deserves!”

“This approach works surprisingly well, due in no small part to the exceptionally high standard of the acting. Each of the five of the main characters . . . has a distinct personality and the cast do a great job of bringing these personalities to the fore and ensuring that none of the characters ever descends into becoming an homogenized serial killer.

“. . . they exert a morbid fascination that keeps you watching.”

9/27/07 – The Colonel’s Crypt has reviewed The Blood Shed (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion). Here’s an excerpt: 

The performances are what make the film . . . Joshua Nelson and Mike Lane as brothers Butternut and Hubcap played off each other very well in their different styles. Nelson is the more abrasive of the two, showing his anger towards the victims if need be, while Lane has a low key, subdued performance that balances out the rest of the family perfectly

The acting in The Blood Shed also deserves high marks with every last role in the film done without net or restrictions. It almost feels like we are watching inmates at an insane asylum as director Alan Rowe Kelly lets the performers find themselves and rarely if ever they are reigned in.

9/8/07 – Here’s an excerpt from a review of The Blood Shed (supporting role of Hubcap Bullion) by Horror Review:

The acting in the film is the strong point and we get some of the best acting I've ever seen in an independent feature . . .  Mike Lane as Hubcap was not only who I thought to be the best character in the film, but Lanes performance was outstanding. How any actor can act like he did in this film takes a lot of talent. Not only did he have to act like a retarded crackhead with berets in his hair, but he had to wear a pig costume also.  How he stayed in character is beyond me, because it takes talent to play a role like that.

Nathan Butler's fan audio trailer for Kevin J. Anderson's book The Saga of the Seven Suns Book I: Hidden Empire is now online. 

To listen to the trailer please follow these instructions:   

-         Go www.starwarsfanworks.com/chronoradio and click on “Interview Editions,” "Kevin J. Anderson #2 (Part 1 of 2) (Interview Edition XXII)," and "Download Part 1 (of 2)". 

-         Fast forward to 41:32.  My voice is featured at 47:55.  The line is, "I was not sent here to negotiate," said in a menacing “alien-like” voice.

-         Fast forward to 48:12 to hear my second line which is, “"What are you?  What do you want?  We mean you no harm."   

I purposefully said this line as a cheesy hero type would say it (a homage to the old superhero and monster movies).  My other two takes were very panic stricken and more serious.  I guess Nathan liked my cheesy heroic grandstanding better ;)

2/22/05 - I will be a featured zombie in Insane-O-Rama's latest movie titled Last Rites.
