Mike is not only a writer here but also the owner and operator of a film production and special effects makeup company. Mike is gearing up to work on fellow Blood Sprayer contributors new film, Idiot Gore, which is sure to be a raucous, gory, helluva good time. He is also in production on his short film, Die, Develkok, Die!. The film is a love letter to exploitation movies of the 70's and 80's and is influenced by modern films like Grindhouse and Hobo With a Shotgun. He is also working on a feature length documentary in the spirit of American Scary that chronicles the history of the Tennessee horror hosts called "The Tennessee Horror Show!". Mike loves all things horror and is very excited to share with the Blood Sprayer community!
