I'm very pleased to introduce to you, my new intern, Raven Cousens, my go-to-girl, my official partner-in-crime!
Raven Cousens is a keen 18-year old actress from the small town Kitchener, Ontario. She’s just graduated from high school, but has spent most of her time acting. She began as Shakespeare’s frail Juliette, but has somehow transitioned into the indie horror scene. To date, she’s smashed her crush up with a hammer, eaten human ‘fondue’, spent a little time as a lagoon ghost, joined a cult, and once unwillingly helped re-population.
Raven will be working as my new evil henchmen, and can’t wait to feast on the new challenges that will come! Please make Raven feel welcome! You will be seeing a lot more from this lovely lady here on my website, in the pages of magazines, in films of all kinds and in episodes of Fright Bytes! In fact, you may remember Raven from our special Evil Dead episode! Click HERE to watch!
Visit often, Raven has a lot in

Archibald has a new film that is coming out; he is the co-writer and co-producer of ANTISOCIAL, directed and written by Cody Calahan.

On October 1st, 1968, "Night of the Living Dead" premiered in the steel town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Produced for a mere $114,000, the film went on to gross more than, $250,000,000 worldwide. It has been translated into 25 different languages and has been playing on the big screen consistently since 1968. Even four decades after it's release, the movie is still revered as a cult classic, and holds a 96% "Certified Fresh" rating on the popular Internet film review site ROTTEN TOMATOES. Needless to say, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is undoubtedly the most popular and successful horror film of all time.
Now, 45 years later, Nictophobia Films is bringing this cinematic masterpiece to the stage in early 2013 like you have never seen before. Just like the film, the stage production will be presented entirely in black and white, from the set design right to the actors. The performance will be audience interactive as live zombies walk through the aisles, making their way to the to the stage keeping spectators on the edge of their seats. Measures have been taken to maintain a PG rating so that a younger audience can also experience this fun and amazing production.
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE will captivate audiences as they experience this classic told in the intimate setting of a live theater. This will bring the viewer closer to the story than ever before, as they are literally sitting in the house with the characters as they fight and kill their way through the marauding ghouls. At the end of the show everyone in the room will know what it feels like to experience a night with the living dead!
