INCUBATOR has officially been selected to the 6th annual Spooky Movie International Horror Film Festival. The Spooky Movie Fest takes place in Washington, D.C. October 13-16. Almost one year ago to the day, I was editing INCUBATOR in D.C. in between editing political commercials. It's only fitting that the film head back to the District and scare some folks.

Allow me to geek out for a second. I have always said I would rather be on the cover of Rue Morgue Magazine than win an Academy Award. Rue Morgue is my Bible. It's my manual. I live for this magazine. So needless to say, I was pretty excited when I saw INCUBATOR had a little blurb written about it in issue #115. It was written in an article that reviews some of the best films from Fantasia 2011, including Small Gauge Trauma, the shorts package we were a part of. It reads:
Well-directed and powerfully affective, is INCUBATOR (Jimmy Weber, USA). A young man wakes up in a bathtub covered in ice, a huge scar on his side, and a note on the bathroom mirror that says "Thanks." A brilliant set-up leading to an intense denouement that moves in a Cronenberg-like direction.

I'm trying to be professional and act like I've been here before, but when your favorite magazine compares you to one of the greatest horror filmmakers ever, it's hard not to freak out. The issue will be on stands soon but you can download it now if you're subscribed to it on your iPad and iPhone (which I am and highly recommend). And if you haven't checked out this magazine and their incredible horror community, do yourself a favor and check out Rue-Morgue.com now!
INCUBATOR has officially been selected to Fantastic Fest. Devin Faraci of Badass Digest says “If there’s a heaven, I want it to be just like the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar during the week of Fantastic Fest.” Variety calls it the "Geek Telluride." And we're gonna be there the whole damn week.
I couldn't be more excited to announce this news. I have always dreamed about going to this festival, let alone see my movie play there. And this year looks to be good as ever. I can't wait to see Ti West's THE INNKEEPERS and Lars von Trier's MELANCHOLIA. But most of all, I'm just excited to party at the greatest movie theater in the world.
The festival runs from September 22-30 in Austin, Texas at the Alamo Drafthouse. Luke Sorge and I will be among the audience, so if you see us there, be sure to say, "Hi" and we'll all grab a drink and some BBQ!
