I have been working as a film journalist since 2010, dividing the first four years between radio broadcasting and entertainment writing in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. In 2014, I entered Fresh Fiction (FreshFiction.tv) as the features editor. The following year, I stepped into the film critic position at the Denton Record-Chronicle, a daily North Texas print publication. My time is dedicated to writing theatrical film reviews, at-home entertainment columns, and conducting interviews with on-screen talent and filmmakers, as well as hosting a podcast devoted to genre filmmaking (called My Bloody Podcast). I've been married for seven happy years, and I have one son who is all about dinosaurs just like his dad.
Available on DVD and VOD today is AFTERMATH. The film tells the story of a successful developer (Anthony Michael Hall) who seems to have everything in order, only to find things have come to a screeching halt when his longtime foreman Matt (Jamie Harrold) and subcontractor Tony (Chris Penn in his final performance) start to compete for top position in the company. After Matt mysteriously goes missing and Tom gets fired, the tension rises and violence ensues.
Writer-director Thomas Farone’s suspenseful thriller began production back in 2005 and wrapped shortly before Penn died at age 40 in January 2006. After a long process of getting the film made, AFTERMATH is finally hitting the streets.
An exclusive clip titled “The Interrogation” has been made available to Fresh Fiction of the movie, which features Anthony Michael Hall, Jacinto Taras Riddick and Saul Stein. Watch it below.
AFTERMATH is available on DVD and VOD today.
