The short film HEART OF KARL has been creeping me out since the weekend.  by DARK SIDE

Ever finish a movie thinking “What the hell was that?” only to have it slowly eat at you the rest of the day? What if after an entire weekend, you couldn’t shake that feeling.

OH NO YOU DIDN’T #5!…  CHEECH & CHONG have remade TRON!  No, I’m not kidding.  by COOP

Morgan Freeman asks Coop a question at THE BEST DAY premiere! Video below…


My short film THE BEST DAY premiered in October 2011 at the Delta Cinema in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

Little did I know I had a special guest in the audience who was about to ask me a question during the Q&A. Yep, I got a little flustered when I saw who it was.
