‘Walking Distance’ Gets A Deal

Chalk another one up for homegrown Texas horror.

The big news comes out today from Fangoria.com, that Houston-based director Mel House has scored a deal with Lionsgate to distribute his latest film, “Walking Distance”.

The movie is getting a domestic name change to “Psychic Experiment” ( its name was already changed to “Experimental Activity” overseas) and is expected to get a 2011 release.

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.
