We’re super excited to announce a second collaboration with Glass Eye Pix! Deep Focus Records will be releasing a vinyl pressing for Jeff Grace’s fantastic score to I Sell The Dead, starring Dominic Monaghan, Ron Perlman, Larry Fessenden and Angus Scrimm.

We’re also delighted and honored that Angus Scrimm will be contributing exclusive liner notes for the vinyl release. As many fans know, Angus was a Grammy Award-winning author of liner notes well before he became an icon of horror. Under the pen name of Rory Guy, Angus wrote for Capitol Records for decades, penning liner notes for the likes of The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole.

Upon its release, I Sell The Dead (written and directed by Glenn McQuaid) received a warm reception from horror fans and critics alike. In fact, Jeff Grace’s score was also nominated for Best Score in the 2011 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards.

“The film moves with a darting confidence and it literally soars via the evocative and aggressive score by Jeff Grace.” – Hammer to Nail

Check out the full release on DeepFocusRecords.com.

GEP’s first collaboration with Deep Focus Records, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE on vinyl, is currently available at DeepFocusRecords.com.

Larry Fessenden, “Patron Saint of Horror”

LF-Bitter Feast1

Check it! The Montana Mancave Massacre’s got a blog post up all about Fessenden and the films he’s directed, produced and acted in.

Some snippets from the post…

“When I was making my list of films to include…films either directed by or starring Larry Fessenden were taking up a lot of real estate. It was damned nigh impossible to choose between them, so I decided to lump them all together. So here’s you’re gift for the 6th day of Christmas: the majesty that is Larry Fessenden.”

“As the founder of Glass Eye Pix, his philosophy of filmmaking is that you don’t need a massive budget or big star to make a great film. Since 1985, Glass Eye Pix has been producing great indie flicks by auteur directors, especially young horror directors. In short, Larry Fessenden is doing God’s Work.”

“This man is essential to modern horror.”

“Habit is a story of newfound love in a particularly difficult time in one man’s life…it’s a hell of a great vampire film. And it’s one of the rare instances in which Fessenden plays the lead character. And he’s great. He’s got a slovenly charm about him that makes you understand why the vampire character is fascinated by him. Watching Habit, it’s difficult to understand why he didn’t become a more prominent actor. Dude’s got the goods.”

“Wendigo is a micro-budget masterpiece…This is a labor of love, and it shows.”

“The Last Winter is, as far as I know, the first environmental horror movie. It tackles the question (as does Wendigo, to a lesser extent) how does nature fight back when humans violate its balance?”

“And on one last note, if you’re still unconvinced of Larry Fessenden’s awesomeness, he also produces a web-based horror-themed radio drama series named Tales From Beyond the Pale. If any of you are into Arch Oboler’s Lights Out or the old Rod Serling radio plays, Fessenden is the man bring that stuff back. Each episode boasts a celebrity cast and a name author. Sir Lawrence, you just put everyone else to shame.”

Review: LATE PHASES “immensely entertaining,” “that rare kind of monster movie that we very seldom see…”

From SUindependent.com:

It should come as no surprise that Late Phases was produced by Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix, a studio known for ushering in unique genre talent and for shepherding horror projects that really have something to say. Father/son relationships, growing older, living with the scars of war, wrestling with religion, etc., Late Phases isn’t simply a werewolf picture. It has a lot more upstairs than your typical monster movie.

Read the full review here.

Check out LATE PHASES in theaters, or see it On Demand and streaming services including Sony Entertainment Network, Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, Vudu, and Google Play.
