Me? I’m a sucker for two kinds of movies … zombie flicks and anthologies. The latter totally rules because with really short stories, if you’re bored by one segment, another will be starting soon enough. Which is why I was glad to hear about director Ethan Terra joining forces with John Carl Buechler to bring us Monsterpiece Theatre.
The film will contain three short stories and of course a wraparound and will feature some of the writing styles of the ever so lovably twisted Joe Knetter. Filming is finished on two of the three segments — “The Babysitter” and “The Weed” which stars Leslie Easterbrook, John Carl Buechler and Bill Allen. Shooting is scheduled to wrap on the third segment, “Rottentail”, some time in November.
You can check out the official Monsterpiece Theatre MySpace page for a behind-the-scenes look, etc.
We also hear that work on Monsterpiece Theatre 2 is set to begin just two weeks after this one wraps so keep it right here for more as we get it.
