Christopher P. Garetano (Horror Business) is making his return to the genre with a new project entitled COTTONMOUTH.TV, which is a celebration of horror movies, comic books and Halloween. The forthcoming website was initially conceived as a unique venue to premiere the short film of the same name. Directed by Garetano, Cottonmouth is a meticulously crafted mini-movie that aims to scare the hell out of its audience. Read on for more details and pics!
Vengeful ghouls from beyond the grave… Special effects make-up… True ghost stories… A horror movie premiere…
One place where you can find all of these things and more is COTTONMOUTH.TV.
In 1986 artist Steve Bissette (Swamp Thing, Taboo) crafted a three-page horror story that was published in the pages of an underground horror comic titled Gore Shriek. Cottonmouth is his macabre story of four angry ghosts who take their revenge on the “company man” who was responsible for their deaths. Now filmmaker Christopher P. Garetano has brought Cottonmouth to life for Internet generation.
On October 1, 2008, COTTONMOUTH.TV will go live, first with a variety of short vignettes, and then with Cottonmouth the movie premiering on October 31st. The vignettes will include behind-the-scenes footage of Cottonmouth, “How to Make a Monster” with Wicked EFX makeup artist Jason Alvino, the eerie music of Chris Alexander, a history of horror comics with Steve Bissette and Trevor Cook, true ghost stories, and a special Halloween episode of the Internet show America’s Bad Kids.
Cottonmouth merchandise will also be available from the site but the movie and other viewing content is all free. Visitors are encouraged (but not obligated) to donate to one of two charities that include a prominent cancer research foundation and an organization for a rare disease called Pemphigus.
Further information regarding the charities will be available on Cottonmouth.TV in the “treats” section.
For more information log onto COTTONMOUTH.TV on or after October 1, 2008.
