More on the Genre Offerings at Slamdance 2012Aside from Derek Franson’s Comforting Skin, which Uncle Creepy wrote about earlier today, the horror offerings at the 2012 Slamdance Film Festival are slim indeed. In fact, it looks like just two other films are even sort of genre-related: OK, Good from director Daniel Martinico and Sundowning from director/screenwriter Frank Rinaldi.

The 2012 Slamdance Film Festival will take place January 20–26, 2012, in Park City, Utah, at the Treasure Mountain Inn. It will showcase 18 feature-length competition films – 10 Narrative Films and 8 Documentary Films, including 13 World Premieres.

Our competition showcase reflects new approaches to filmmaking that mirror the challenging times in which we currently live. These films showcase filmmakers who have a tremendous ability to innovate, experiment, and lead us boldly into the future of independent filmmaking,” said Peter Baxter, Slamdance President and Co-Founder.

While it’s true that we currently live in a time of medical wonders, that doesn’t mean good old human error can’t throw its ugly hat into the ring every so often… straight upon the head of a medical curiosity!

Kevin D. Clark is a cartoonist from Scotland who grew up watching classic monster movies, cartoons and wrestling, as well as reading comics. He started drawing at an early age and hasn’t stopped since. His sense of humor is a veritable cornucopia of the wacky and weird inspired by the likes of Monty Python, Mel Brooks, “MST3K,” Rab C. Nesbitt, as well as his older brother.

Kevin was diagnosed with Aspergers and because of that, he tries to push himself to work as hard as possible. Kevin also has a self-published comic book and helps run a film club for autistic people. He has recently earned a degree in cartooning from the London Art College and he’s pretty sure that he could take an octopus in a fight.

Episode 1.07 – “Echoes of My Mind” – airs on a new night and time – Thursday, December 14, at 11/10c. That’s tomorrow for those of you not keeping an eye on your calendars!

The cast includes Mario Van Peebles (interview), Robinne Lee (“House of Payne,” “Being Mary Jane”), Brad James (“For Better or Worse”), W. Earl Brown (“Preacher,” “Deadwood,” “Bates Motel”), Demetria McKinney (“House of Payne,” “Saints and Sinners”), Diamond Dallas Page (“WWE Monday Night RAW,” The Devil’s Rejects), Morgana Van Peebles (We the Party, IF), and newcomers T.C. Carter and Tatiana Lia Zappardino.

“Superstition” is produced by Barry Gordon, Mario Van Peebles, and Mitchell Galin. Joel Anderson Thompson (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Boomtown,” “House M.D.”) is the co-creator and showrunner, and Laurence Andries (“Alias,” “Six Feet Under) is executive producer.

“Superstition” centers around the Hastings family, owners of the only funeral home in the mysterious town of La Rochelle, Georgia. The family also acts as the keepers of the town’s dark secrets and history.
