Deadly “Psycho-therapy” in new horror short
Psycho-therapy was written and directed by Joshua Nelson (pictured right), who scripted and starred in a number of New York/New Jersey-lensed horror features including Pink Eye, Skinned Alive (a.k.a. Eat Your Heart Out) and Aunt Rose. This new project, he tells Fango, “is about a middle-aged psychotherapist who is abused by her husband and ignored by her patients. She is pushed to a very dark place where she feels that people who can’t change, or don’t want to change, have only one option—to be killed. She lures the challenged couples to an upstate getaway where she can finally fix them…her way.” The cast includes Rose Fiore, Karla Post, Alfred Cantilina, Michael Johnson, Ernest Romeo, Kerry Wittig and Michelle Michaels; Kevin Harrington served as the cinematographer and editor. Psycho-therapy is currently making the festival rounds, and will screen March 23 at the Jersey Gore Film Festival.

Halo-8 Snags 'Pink Eye' for Theatrical and DVD

Over the past few months I think I've heard about the indie horror pic Pink Eye a few times, it must have been for a good reason as Halo-8 Entertainment has picked up worldwide rights to the gory horror flick, featuring the writer, director and star of Lionsgate's Skinned Alive. James Tucker's feature, from scribe Joshua Nelson, follows a masked lunatic who escapes a small-town insane asylum where patients are subjected to bizarre drug experiments. Melissa Bacelar stars. Halo-8 plans a limited theatrical release this summer (now that's quick thinking), followed by a DVD bow September 30.
