Press Release: Brett Piper’s MUCKMAN Coming to DVD!

According to distributor Chemical Burn Entertainment, Brett (DRAINIAC) Piper and Mark (SPLATTER BEACH) Polonia’s old school swamp monster movie MUCKMAN is finally going to be released on DVD on September 20th, 2011. Besides the movie itself, the disc will also contain several special features, such as an audio commentary, a behind-the-scenes featurette, a photo gallery and a trailer show.

MUCKMAN is a charming homage to the drive-in classics of yesteryear, which was originally shot in 2009. The film, which was just shown at Germany’s renowned Weekend Of Horror festival a few weeks ago, tells the story of a sensation-seeking TV crew that hunts down a fabled swamp thing-like creature, the so-called Muckman, in the musty mires of Pennsylvania. Featuring a talented ensemble cast including the lovely scream queens Anju (SHOCK-O-RAMA) McIntyre, Alison (BACTERIUM) Whitney and Danielle (HALLOWEEN NIGHT) Donahue, MUCKMAN is jam packed with all the ingredients of a highly entertaining retro-fright fest—gruesome rubber suit monsters, wicked stop motion critters, accomplished practical effects, likable characters, tongue-in-the-cheek humor and, of course, a slimy, tentacle-draped fiend from beyond the surface!

More information about MUCKMAN, its DVD release, and Brett Piper’s work in general can be found on his website, his Facebook page, and at Chemical Burn Entertainment.


I’m excited for this.  For one thing, I love Brett Piper’s work.  He’s a Practical FX guy, which I really appreciate.  If you know me, you know I am all about the guys in rubber suits and stop-motion puppets — Not a fan of CGI monsters here at all.  And then to top it off, it’s a movie about a Swamp Thing-style muck monster (one of my favorite types of monsters)? I AM SO THERE!
