"Scream Farm" from Jim O'Rear

I'm working on another one of those case studies and I thought I'd have it done for today, but... nope. So, I quickly wanted to mention Jim O'Rear's upcoming film, "Scream Farm", which will be available on June 10th from Under The Bed / Phoenix Entertainment.

A little about Jim... He started out as a magician, then worked as a stuntman and actor, all before getting into screenwriting and, later, directing. Currently, he's also contributing to national publications, such as 'Scary Monsters Magazine', 'Haunted Attraction Magazine' and 'Underground Entertainment'. Also, he will soon be appearing, as himself, along with Ken Foree, Brinke Stevens, Tom Savini, Debbie Rochon and James Gunn, in the new fictional horror novel, "Bad Moon Rising". So, he's been at this a while and when it comes to getting his films made, they're as indie as they come. On his latest project, "Scream Farm", he acts as the producer, writer, director, assistant art director, still photographer, casting director, editor, special makeup effects artist and he also acts in it, as well as did some stunts.

"Scream Farm", which is currently screening at select festivals and recently got distribution, follows a group of students who build a Halloween haunted house to help raise money for their senior class trip. However, the students get more then they bargained for when they come across a substance in the building that begins turning them, and the townspeople, into flesh-craving zombies.

Look out for it on June 10th, I'm sure we'll cover it again, though. For more information on Jim, you can go to his website or Myspace page. For more information on the film, you can go to its Myspace page.
