Or you can wait another year for the Syfy Channel version Bryan Singer has in the works.
In an act of complete nepotism, this scribe is proud to announce that his sister Peggy Decker’s horror short Crymson Water (which she executive produced and which was filmed in Northern California last summer) will premiere this Sunday, August 9 at the Raven Performing Arts Theater in Healdsburg, CA (115 North Street).
