ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY:
In the 1990's Brimstone Media Productions was known for its low-budget horror and sci-fi movies, notably VAMPIRES & OTHER STEREOTYPES and ADDICTED TO MURDER, which was widely distributed through Blockbuster in '96. In the 2000's we switched to producing documentaries broadcast on PBS (such as "But You Look So Well": Living with Multiple Sclerosis and "I'm Not Nuts": Living with Food Allergies). Needless to say, the two have extremely different audiences.
This feature documentary, our 7th, is meant to bridge the two viewerships...
For most everyone (alive that is), death is something that looms far off on the horizon. And although it is an unavoidable reality the perception of it differs widely from person to person.
This documentary explores how death is perceived by an eclectic group of individuals who work in the media and how it influences (or not) how they go about their lives and their work. This includes such people as spiritual journalist David Crumm, Troma head honcho Lloyd Kaufman, Author/artist Bob Fingerman, authors Jack Ketchum (OFF SEASON) and Keith R.A. DeCandido, special effects artist Tom Sullivan (EVIL DEAD), filmmaker Scooter McCrae (SHATTER DEAD), professional Tarot Card reader Sasha Graham, "Scream Queens" Debbie Rochon and Caroline Munro (DR. PHIBES, MANIAC), along with a host of others.
Through serious, hilarious and poignant interviews, you will see how the concept of death has taken on a life of its own in the 21st Century.
