Yeah, you read that right. I just signed a deal with ABC (where, ironically, I also have a TV pilot in development), to feature not one, but SEVEN original “faux-ploitation” movie posters from my book SHOCK FESTIVAL in their flagship cop show CRIMINAL MINDS.
This will make the FOURTH film production to feature posters from SHOCK FESTIVAL, and it’s probably the coolest, because those other things happened via friendships with the directors—even though they were waaaay cool movies. Those way-cool movies were JOHN DIES AT THE END, CHILL-O-RAMA and the very awesome THE HILLS RUN RED, my personal favorite in the bunch, directed by my buddy Dave Parker. However, this CRIMINAL MINDS thing came completely out of the blue, from set decorator K.C. Fox, an awesome lady who cut her teeth working on on such stellar class-act exploitation films such as SMOKEY BITES THE DUST and GALAXY OF TERROR for Roger Corman. So she’s just as cool as all those other fools, hands down.
The episode will feature my posters hanging on the wall of a horror geek as he is being grilled by the cops.
And the best, most cosmic part is that it will air on my BIRTHDAY.
Which is NOVEMBER 12.
How randomly cool is that?
