Back in the late fall, Rich and I had been invited down to the studio where Canadian Indie director Ryan M. Andrews was hunkered down and working feverishly to get a rough cut done of his latest feature film. I was quite honored to be asked to come down and be one of the first few to see his latest offering and give some critical analysis afterwards.
Well let me just say “Save Yourself” is going be an absolute winner once it starts making the festival rounds later this year. In fact Ryan has just released a teaser trailer to get everyone psyched up for it and I guarantee this will whet your appetite for now; hopefully getting anticipation levels to go through the freaking roof for the actual film’s release.
If you have seen the director’s last feature – “Sick” then you know what to expect from this gifted young man. He’s going to gut punch you quickly with the striking visuals and with an all female cast consisting of some of the hottest and brightest talents in the business – Save Yourself is virtually a captivating horror film already.
I should also point out that Ryan has been a valued member of our staff and you will be seeing his name often enough in the print version of HMS. He’s got two riveting interviews with The Butcher Babies and Mushroomhead debuting in the first issue, and I am tickled pink to have him contributing to the best horror/metal website on the planet! Also, look for a review of Sick (debuting soon) in the Horror Show section on the website, plus our Managing Editor Stevie Kopas will be sitting down for a revealing chat with the director, so there is lots of exciting things coming down the pipe from Ryan and HMS!
So in the meantime, as I begin my sign-off here; keep those fists pumping and always keep it bloody boys and girls!
