FEWDIO - A bunch of horror guys that you should be keeping an eye on...

There's a distinct possibility that you haven't heard of Fewdio or "Nightmare House" yet, but starting August 6th, I think you're going to start hearing a lot more. Actually, if you're a regular reader, you may have heard us talk about them or their first short film, "The Easter Bunny is Eating my Candy", already. Either way, these guys are really on to something big, they're definitely a group to keep an eye on and, over here at Dead Harvey, we're already big fans.

What I really appreciate and love about the five guys that make up Fewdio is that they have all cut their chops in the industry successfully, having established themselves as screenwriters, directors, actors and producers. Then, one day, they woke up and decided to say "F it" and started Fewdio... and what Fewdio's doing, as far as I'm concerned, is trail-blazing. They're making a collection of horror shorts and are trying new ways of distribution by throwing stuff out there using the web, festivals and networking...

Brad and I had a chance to sit down with three of the five Fewdio members a few weeks ago, have a bunch of beers and shoot the shit... they're an extremely talented bunch of guys and they're really on to something with what they're doing. We'll be sure to keep you posted on all Fewdio activity, but until then... take a listen to what they had to say.

Fantastic stuff!

Ted and Brad, you don't disappoint! Fewdio is really on to something here, I think.

There are a ton of people doing comedy films online, but no one is doing horror. At least, nothing this cool and authentic.
