Huh! I read the screenplay for this flick just a couple weeks ago. There was no mention it had already been produced and was about to be released, let alone that it was directed by good ol' Johnny C. Pretty good read, I liked it quite a bit.
I'll be checking this one out. While I believe that, sadly, his best work is behind him, I figure since he's made no less than four of my favorite genre flicks (Halloween, The Fog, Christine and In the Mouth of Madness) it's the least I could do.
