Short Film Debut: Paper Rock, Scissors

One thing we pride ourselves on at Dread Central is how many of our staff members have spread their wings and tried other things besides giving you the best news and review coverage we can.

That's a lot of estrogen, man! Bless their hearts for putting up with our shit!
