Checked into the Sheraton Grand this afternoon. TWF attendees were trickling in as those attending a business conference were checking out. This evening, though, the excitement isn’t taking place at the hotel but at the Studio Movie Grill in Lewisville where Lucky McKee is getting the red carpet treatment for his controversial latest film, “The Woman”. It premiered at Sundance where it angered some members of the audience who felt it was too disturbing. Tonight, TFW goers will experience how disturbing McGee’s vision for ourselves.
Screening before “The Woman” is “Offspring”, Andrew van den Houte’s 2009 offering about a clan of cannibals eating through a small community.
Dubbed, "TerrorScribe" by a former editor, Joe made the conversion to horror sometime in the mid-2000s. Little did he know he'd favored the genre all of his life. When not struggling with short stories, he provided genre film reviews for local entertainment sites and later genre sites who could suffer his cynical views.
It was that same cynicism - and some might say hubris - that lead him to have a brief flirtation with filmmaking. His first two efforts, "Annotated" and "Antes Que Seja Tarde (Before It's Too Late)" both premiered at a local H.P. Lovecraft film festival. A third short, "Survivor Girl" proved to be his undoing though plans are in the works to revived the cursed project.
Born and raised in Dallas, TX., Joe now resides in a small Texas town. Statistics say more dead bodies turn up in small towns that big cities... though he claims to have NOTHING to do with that.
