Chiller: Grim Fairy Tales

Herschell shoo'd me back up to the dealer rooms to meet Andrew Allan and Andy Lalino of Film State 51. Turns out I already knew them through their shocker short Filthy. (Andy's even an avowed CineSchlocker!) The longer we chatted, the higher I started to hover off the ground as they told me about their plans to lens Herschell's pet project -- Grim Fairy Tales!

"We signed the option deal this morning," Andrew explained. "We're going to start producing it right away. It's a feature-length project based on the script Herschell wrote. Herschell will be directing. We're going to produce it for him. So, it should be a good team."

The Florida-based filmmakers first hooked up with Lewis through another flick they're developing called Back in Blood: Revenge of the Gore-Crazed Maniacs, which assembles an all-star cast of the goreteur's most notorious bloodletters: Fuad Ramses, Montag the Magnificent, Adam Sorg and the undersung Gruesome Twosome. But it appears Back in Blood will have to wait now that Herschell and the fellas are itching to get Grim as soon as this winter. Stay tuned!

Oh, they're also working with CineSchlocker idol Bill Grefe on a remake of his lost film The Devil's Sisters. My kind of people!
