Horror Update: Bloody Billy Pon & Circus of the Dead
Hey everyone. You can feel it in the air. There’s a slight chill and it’s getting darker earlier at night. I’m in Austin, TX so by “chill” I mean we’re in the mid-80′sto low-90′s, but you get what I’m saying. Halloween is quickly approaching and in my house we’ve started celebrating since September 1st!! Going to the two kick ass Halloween stores by my house I’ve been seeing a lot of evil/demonic/perverse-looking clown outfits and it got me thinking about indie horror filmmaker, Bloody Billy Pon. Bloody Bill wrote (along with Lee Ankrum), directed, did the sound editing, the film editing, and produced (again, with Ankrum) the 2010 short horror film, DOLL BOY (my review here). Ever since 2010 DOLL BOY has been tearing up the festival circuit and I even got to experience the gory, disturbing short at this past year’s Texas Frightmare Weekend with a crowd. DOLL BOY killed!!! But best yet is I got to meet Bloody Bill himself and even got to meet Doll Boy (even in a public setting with the lights on, Doll Boy is fucking terrifying). It was the highlight of the 2012 convention for me.
Since I was thinking about horrifying clowns and terrifying baby masks on sociopathic adult men, I decided to stop by the DOLL BOY and CIRCUS OF THE DEAD Facebook pages and see if there’s any updates. Well the good news is that Bloody Bill is indeed making a full-length feature film (CIRCUS OF THE DEAD). We talked a bit about that at the Texas Frightmare Weekend and he’s super excited about the project and so is everyone who’s seen DOLL BOY. There were also a few pics up on the CIRCUS OF THE DEAD Facebook page of everyone’s favorite clown, Noodledome the Clown (the pics in this post).
Besides being a very talented filmmaker who’s a huge asset to the horror genre, Bloody Bill is also a really, genuine nice guy. He’s friendly, goes outta his way to make you feel like a long lost friend, and always makes time for his fans. But don’t let that cuddly, teddy bear-like demeanor fool you … Bloody Bill has a Dark Side. Not just any Dark Side … a black-hole black Dark Side!!Just watch DOLL BOY and the faux-trailers he made before DOLL BOY!!
I’ve gotten Bloody Bill to promise me he’s gonna email me when there’s updates on the progress of CIRCUS OF THE DEAD. For now I hope you enjoy the images (remember; these images are not from CIRCUS OF THE DEAD … these are promo stills). So stay tuned … the future looks bright with horrors to come from Bloody Billy Pon, and I’ll be here to give you all the bloody details!!
