In May of 2011 Brian Lashchuk of Beyond The Grave Productions came down to my side of town with his beat up serial killer van and we shot a short film called “compulsion”. The story was originally Brian’s idea of a serial killer that finally gets his comeuppance. We expanded the story a bit, Brian volunteered to be the killer and I shot the whole thing, did the sound, and edited it. It was a 2 day whirlwind of a shoot and it was in the 90’s with high humidity the whole time. Now in 2012 a year later there are definetly things I would have done differently and there’s a couple badly lit scenes but overall it turned out pretty well. It’s heavily inspired by “The X-Files” and my favorite show “Millennium”. Check it out and let us know what you think.

On a side note this was the first film Brian and I shot under our new joint logo called Beyond Rogue Films. We shoot so many projects together that it just seemed to make sense to finally come up with a cool name for what we’re doing so Rogues Hollow Productions and Beyond the Grave Productions, combine to form Beyond Rogue Films. We have a Giallo film we hope to release by this fall and yes we’re finally starting to come up with ideas and storylines for a completely new take on the classic “Halloween”. Stay tuned!

    I actually though this was pretty good for a filmmaker first starting out. There are a lot of things wrong BUT it was still entertaining and I watched it all the way through. Not scary, just interesting to watch.

    Good Job! I wish I could find some actors willing to do some disturbing things like this since horror is my love. Anyway, you should continue with filmmaking. You seem good at it.
