Who's There? - Fun Size Horror

Who's There? Short Goes Live!

April 2016

Collaborating with filmaker Joe Russo is one of the great priviledges in my career. He has a great visual eye that feels like 1980's Spielberg got blended with Hitchcock and blasted into the 21st century. Mali Elfman apparently agrees, since she decided to feature us on her site, Fun Size Horror - the "Funny or Die" of all things scary! Check it out!!
