On December 4th I once again got the opportunity to be a part of The Dead Hour a web based horror anthology filmed here in Omaha. This was my second time playing a background character in the show the first was in Fright Fest which kicked off the second season of The Dead Hour on October 18th 2011 and now I’m going to be in All Hollow’s Eve which will launch on January 17th 2012.
The Dead Hour was created by the same minds who made the indie horror movie The Wretched, Director Daniel B. Iske and Writer Scott Coleman. The Dead Hour is same vein as Tales From the Crypt and Creep Show it stars Melissa Holder as DJ Raven a radio talk show host that bring her audience tales of horror and suspense. The first season first launched on October 27, 2010 with the episode Donor followed by four more episodes Alcoholic Vampire, Cougar, The Hole and Cannibal Girls.
Second season launched on October 18, 2011 with Fright Fest and will consist of 9 episodes which will end with Fireside Lounge on February 28, 2012. The first four episodes have been launched with the next one being Gross Anatomy on December 13, 2011.
Season one of The Dead Hour was one of the shows we had at our 2011 indie film fest at OSFest 4 and season two will be shown at OSFest 5. During OSFest 4 we also had a panel on Make-up and Effects ran by Ryan Lacy of The Spider and The Fly FX who is now head of make-up FX for The Dead Hour.
