Author and filmmaker Gregory Lamberson is one of the busiest guys we know. He just wrapped on horror comedy Dry Bones, kicked off The Legend of Six Fingers, and has two more projects already waiting in the wings!
From the Press Release:
Author and filmmaker Gregory Lamberson (Slime City Massacre, The Jake Helman Files) has wrapped principal photography on the horror comedy Dry Bones and has announced a full slate of upcoming independent feature film projects which will be filmed in the Buffalo-Niagara region.
Lamberson wrote Dry Bones, which he co-produced and co-directed with Michael O’Hear (pictured below), who stars alongside Debbie Rochon (also pictured below), who endured a seven-hour make-up and costuming process to become the succubus Lilim. “We shot Dry Bones over 19 days, mostly on weekends,” says Lamberson. “It looks terrific, and the performances are first rate. I put together a great team to make this, and I want to work with them on future projects. I‘d intended for Dry Bones to be my last micro-budget feature, but it was such a good shoot, the best I’ve been on since Slime City Massacre, that I’m ready to dive into other projects.”
First up is The Legend of Six Fingers, written and directed by Sam Qualiana, who created Snow Shark: Ancient Snow Beast. Lamberson is producing. Six Fingers is a found footage film about two documentary filmmakers searching for a Bigfoot-like creature that has three fingers on each hand. Rochon appears in the film, and other horror icons will play roles as well. Craig Lindberg is creating the key special effects.
“Sam was my cinematographer on Dry Bones, and he mentioned this project on set one day,” Lamberson explains. “He said the right words, ‘I’m going to do this,’ so I said I’d produce it. We share a love for monster movies, and since making Snow Shark, he’s worked on Model Hunger, Return to Nuke Em High, Battledogs, and now Dry Bones. That’s a hell of a filmmaking education, and he’s ready to make another film of his own. We wrapped Dry Bones last Wednesday, took a day off, then started shooting Six Fingers on Friday before Debbie left.” Production continues through the summer.
Once Six Fingers has been completed, Lamberson will direct the comedy Killer Rack from a screenplay by Paul McGinnis, who appears in Dry Bones. Killer Rack concerns a young woman who gets breast implants which turn out to be possessed. “Paul’s script won the original screenplay competition at Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival, which I help run. We had a guest judge, Joseph O’Brien, and I didn’t even read the script until we were shooting Dry Bones. It’s the funniest script I’ve ever read, I kept laughing out loud, and I told Paul that same day that I had to direct it, so he and I are co-producing it. The script obviously has an outrageous premise but also a sweet love story; it reminds me of Little Shop of Horrors, only with man-eating boobs instead of a carnivorous plant.”
Last on Lamberson’s slate is Frankenstein’s Monster. “I’ve dreamed of making this film since high school, when I was influenced by the TV movies Frankenstein: The True Story and Dan Curtis’ Frankenstein with Bo Svenson. I’ve developed the script in my head for years, but I’ve always shied away from making it because I wanted to concentrate on original projects. The time is right to stitch this monster together.”
Lamberson will appear at Niagara Falls Comic Con in Niagara Falls, Ontario, this weekend and has two novels being published this year: Storm Demon, Book Five in his occult detective series The Jake Helman Files, will be in stores in October; and The Julian Year, the first TREEbook (Timed Reading Experience E-book) for iPads, will be released by Medallion Press in December. Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, which runs November 8th-14th, is currently accepting submissions.
