Necronomicon Spells Trouble

Last week we finished shooting the third HPL inspired short in our unholy trinity.  A good time was has by all and the Necronomicon was refined and polished (the prop that is)  Let’s call it a dry run for its feature film debut.


The short should be finished in a couple of weeks and then it’s off to the internets.  And that’s it for our short films.  But as the days get shorter the films get longer as we begin production on our first feature Drawing Baphomet.

Keep on Ftaghn,

Joseph Nanni
