A Sin That Cannot Be Forgiven Poster Art_8x11_nightmare

Herschell Gordon Lewis, Godfather of Gore, is in pre-production of his new indie cult film Zombificador.  

H.G. Lewis will be directing the film. It is co-written by Herschell Gordon Lewis himself and Marc Fernandez, producer of the movie.  Colin McCracken, from Zombiehamster.com will also be a producer of the film.

I contributed to the film, therefore making me an associate producer of the film.

The film will be starring horror icon Bill Moseley, from Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects and the cult musical Repo!, and Michael Berryman, from the original The Hills Have Eyes by Wes Craven.

Below is the synopsis from the Indiegogo campaign:

Zombificador is an old-style anthology movie, with several stories that interconnect with each other in some point. From big fat monsters with the ability of transforming people into savage creatures, to human-sized mutant bugs, along with talking puppets and silent psycho killers, that’s what Zombificador is all about.

With five different stories, Zombificador will be the goriest and grossest movie ever made by Herschell Gordon Lewis.

In a comeback to his classic gore films, we are proud to present you with the wildest movie ever made by the “Godfather of Gore”, the most important horror filmmaker and the inventor of Gore and Splatter.

I am honored to be a part of this production.

Los Angeles, Ca. May 15, 2013 – Scream Queens Victoria De Mare, Michelle Tomlinson, and Reyna Young aka Miss Misery have joined the cast of the Probell Films feature length psychological horror thriller The Divine Order. Victoria De Mare was dubbed by the media as “Hollywood’s Hottest Scream Queen,” Michelle Tomlinson has been listed on several “Top Ten Hot B Movie Actresses” lists, and Reyna Young aka Miss Misery has been labeled by the media as “The Queen of Horror in the Bay Area.” All three Scream Queens along with producer Maureen “Mo” Whelan have been featured on Screamqueen.com.

Her surgery is scheduled for June and she will be receiving additional treatment for the next following months. We ask for your support with her fight against cancer. She has started an on-line donation page to help with her medical bills and other expenses while she is recovering. Please visit the following page and donate today – http://www.gofundme.com/2vnpug.

Probell Films will be shooting a couple of scenes starring Michelle Tomlinson, Reyna Young, Andy Gates, and Uri Ryder at Five0Four Hollywood, a New Orleans themed bar and restaurant located on Hollywood boulevard in Hollywood, Ca. This location was chosen due to its atmosphere, location, friendly staff, choice of alcohol and delicious food.

The story of The Divine Order shadows a tightly knit cult in the aftermath of a mass suicide. The exception is a couple of strangers who refuse to “drink the Kool Aid” much to the ire of the Cults’ persuasive and controlling leader. The two surviving characters break out from the compound, which is in a high desert wasteland, to seek a second chance at life.
