The Chickens Are Coming

Howard Waldrop is gone, but his work will live on.

We’ve completed work on two more short films, based on a couple of Howard’s best stories (he wrote so many, it was very hard to choose).

You can find the trailer for MARY-MARGARET ROAD GRADER several posts down.

And here’s the latest one, an adaptation of Howard’s most famous story, THE UGLY CHICKENS.  Winner of the Nebula.   Winner of the World Fantasy Award.   Nominee for the Hugo, but, alas, not a winner.   A pity, that.  Howard never won a Hugo, but in some more Waldropian  world he has ten of them lined up on his mantle.

Felicia Day (SUPERNATURAL, THE GUILD, DR. HORRIBLE’S SING ALONG BLOG) stars in our film of “that dodo story.”   Mark Raso (COPENHAGEN, KODACHRONE) directed.   Michael Cassutt (TWILIGHT ZONE, MAX HEADROOM, TV101, EERIE INDIANA, and many more) did the screenplay.

Howard saw a rough cut of the film before he died.   He liked it, which pleases me no end.   I only wish we had been able to screen the final cut for him.

Meanwhile, here’s our trailer.

We’re taking THE UGLY CHICKENS and MARY-MARGARET ROAD GRADER out on the film festival circuit, as we did with NIGHT OF THE COOTERS before them.   Don’t know yet when and where you will be able to see them — that depends on the festivals — but watch this space, and I will be sure to let you know where the films are playing.

Current Mood: pleased pleased
