If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing Alan Rowe Kelly’s debut film, I’ll Bury You Tomorrow, I recommend you get it in your Netflix cue or hit Evilshop to buy it right away. A very fucked up film about love and necrophilia, it not only impressed the hell out of me but showcased a talent that had a lot going for him.
So why has it taken so damn long for anything else to happen for Kelly? No idea, but shortly before we left for Comic Con, Alan sent us a ton of pics from The Blood Shed, the next film coming from Southpaw Pictures. Written and directed by Kelly, The Blood Shed is the tale of a inbred family of cannibals in the hills north of New Jersey and their dealings with the day-to-day life of encroaching suburbia. It’s described as an homage to the early films of John Waters and Tobe Hooper, which is more than enough to get my interest peaked.
Kelly is also contributing a short film to an anthology called Hung by a Thread, his film being “A Far Cry From Home”, which deals with a gay couple who end up in a store owned by religious, homophobic psychopaths who believe they’re doing the Lord’s work. Always the most dangerous kind of freakazoid.
A full site for Hung by a Thread will be up soon, but you can check out the splash page for it right here. We’re keeping a close eye on what Kelly’s doing, so expect to hear more very soon!
