The Devil’s Curse / Credo – What horror will happen next?


Happy New Year! Happy new life! That’s how it feels for me as I focus on knuckling down to life. And life for me means focusing on my films.

I have four resolutions for the next year.

1. To launch my horror film Credo / The Devil’s Curse in the UK.

We know where we’re going to have our UK premiere, we know when and we know how it’s going to be released in the UK – we just haven’t been able to tell anyone about it yet! We’re going to announce it very soon so I still can’t say anything – but there’s quite a lot of work involved in getting everything ready, much of which involves me tip tapping away at my computer. So as soon as I can tell you, I will!

2. To package, finance and make my next feature film.

It’s a kick-ass psychological horror made for a much bigger budget and on a bigger scale than Credo. The reaction to the script has been phenomenal and I’m excited even thinking about it. Right now, we’re putting all the elements in place and if all the moons line up and luck is on our side, then we’ll be shooting the film late summer / early Autumn. Keep your fingers crossed.

3. To launch a special interest factual DVD series in the UK.

This is a project that is really close to my heart that I’ve been working on for the past year. It’s a 3 DVD series on a human interest subject far removed from horror. It’s all shot, edited with a distributor lined up and right now, we’re working on things like the DVD cover design, the marketing materials, press releases and endorsements. Once everything is ready, then we need to start actually planning for the launch. The driving force behind it is that the more we do, the more chance it has of being a success.

4. To somehow resolve the ghost in my kitchen.

For anyone who doesn’t know about the ghost in my kitchen, I keep seeing things out of the corner of my eye and think it might be linked to a bricked up corner of my basement where I fear a body may be buried.

Over Christmas and New year, I’ve had the usual sideways glimpses of movement out of the corner of my eye and even sometimes I’ve felt something touching the back of my legs when I’ve been standing in the kitchen washing up or preparing food. I’ve looked around and nothing has been there.

By the end of this year, I’m determined to find out if there is indeed a body buried in the basement no matter what it takes. Even if it means somehow knocking a hole in the bricked up section of the basement.

I know my first three resolutions will involve lots of hard work and will push me really hard. They are all achievable and I’m brimming full of optimism and confidence that even though this is a difficult economic time, we will successfully launch Credo / The Devil’s Curse and the special interest DVD series and hopefully, I will have made my next feature film by this time next year.

However, this last resolution of resolving the ghost – that’s the one that fills me with fear and the one that will be hardest to achieve.

Wish me luck!

  1. Happy new year and good luck! Your list of achievements for this year, has inspired me to write down my own, so thanks for that!

    Im really interested to see what comes of the ghost in your kitchen, especially if it has something to do with the basement.

    Hope you had a good christmas also!

    • Thanks so much. Although I wouldn’t be impressed just yet. All I’ve done is write down a list of all the things I’ld like to do this year – what actually I manage to achieve, that’s a whole different story. But good luck to you this year – lets hope you have some success with your list!
