Green & Cornwell Join Xbox’s Horror Meets Comedy

Horror Meets Comedy - Only on Xbox LIVE!Xbox owners have a lot to look forward to in mid-November. Gears of War will be out, a new Dashboard update brings us avatars, and a horror/comedy series will splatter all over LIVE!

Xbox LIVE, sponsored by the U.S. Air Force, plans to host a series of shorts from some of our favorite genre filmmakers during the turkey month called Horror Meets Comedy. Entries from David Slade, James Gunn, and James Wan will be available on November 19th with more to follow. Two such future projects coming our way will be from none other than “>Hatchet (review) mastermind Adam Green and Peter Cornwell (The Haunting in Connecticut)!

Green will be delivering a “‘Cops’-inspired reality show where two human police officers keep order in a land full of storybook villains, magical monsters, and other cartoonish characters. Cornwell will bring his comedic vision to life in “Post Apocalyptic Pizza” which highlights that after a nuclear disaster even the most basic pizza ingredients command extravagant prices and no job is more dangerous than the pizza deliveryman.

These two series will premiere sometime this winter on Xbox LIVE, following Horror Meets Comedy‘s launch.

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.
