See No Evil Scribe Visits Graveland

See No Evil (click for larger image)Dan Madigan, the mind that brought us the bit of brutality known as “>See No Evil (review) is not done with the horror genre. Two years after Kane (or ‘Fake Desiel’ as my wrestling friends still call him) terrorized a hot young cast, the writer has lined up a few intriguing flicks.

According to Fango, Mr. Madigan is in the process of tying up an “original script called Graveland for hot director Roel Reiné and producer Andy Ackerman. It’s a wild cross between Ghostbusters, Poltergeist and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and is very, very dark, funny and scary. Everyone involved is very excited about bringing this comically macabre story to life.

Roel Reiné’s other current projects include an After Dark picture titled The Lost Tribe and stars Lance Henriksen. On a side note, Lance also told Dan Madigan that the writer’s other upcoming project, Necro Sapiens, has an ending which reminds the genre fave “of The Wild Bunch if it were written by James Cameron on acid, and that it’s a horrific hybrid of Dawn of the Dead and Dog Soldiers. The greatest of compliments, really.

Gotta admire his enthusiasm about everything, but I’d really like to know more about these movies instead of just comparisons to classics.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
