I mean seriously, the last time I heard about it was about four years ago, but what happened?  

Did the money ran out?  Are they still in production?

What happened? 

This is all that is left?

Hi Mattosaurus,

A few things happened with this movie...  For starters, the writer/director, Chris Theis passed away from cancer back in late August of 2015.  The official website had disappeared around 6 months to a year before that without any updates.  One night during the filming apparently Chris and the producer, Mark Frizzell, had a huge fight, unfortunately I was dead asleep and didn't witness any of it.  Both of them had consumed alcohol beforehand.  From what little Mark told me it seemed like it was about who's movie it was, i.e., a control struggle.  I sent a couple e-mails to other people from the cast/crew and didn't hear anything back about the status of the movie.  If you read the commentary on the Mermaid Mary photos you know I also had a falling out with the producer.  Almost everyone was going to quit because of his behavior.  At this point I don't know if there was any legal agreement drawn up as to who would own the rights to the movie or if they just had a verbal agreement.  If it is left up to the producer I'm sure he'll ruin it because of his incompetence. 

To continue....

Chris had started to piece it together, what he showed us looked great!  A vast improvement over Winterbeast.  In my opinion the only hope this movie has left is if someone PROFESSIONAL,  and by that I mean NOT Mark Frizzell, buys the rights and completes it.  Who knows, maybe Chris willed it to his kids...

I don't really know what's going on with the "flickrhivemind" thing but this is the Original place where those photos and videos came from...

Since Chris' passing I've been thinking about posting a few more things I still have from the movie since it might not get made after all.  If Mark was COMPLETELY removed from the movie by someone else I'd continue to work on it if I were invited to do so.
