So here we are at the end of 2012 and ‘Til Death has had quite the year. As expected (?), ‘Til Death managed to play in a bunch of genre fests. And quite unexpectedly, it picked up three separate BEST SHORT FILM awards!
Matthew Foster and his friends at Dragon*Con honored the film by naming it Best Short, as well as Best Horror. And I didn’t even have to wear a costume! Weeks later, the pre-Halloween weekend was a big one. J.T. Seaton and the New Orleans Horror Film Festival named us Best Short as well, as did Chad Clinton Freeman and the Pollygrind Underground Film Festival — which named us Best Short AND Best Director. So that was thrilling, flattering, humbling, and overwhelming, all rolled up into one. Now, as 2012 comes to an end, the future of ‘Til Death is being debated. It will either be part of a larger project, or be released as part of an anthology of other horror-minded shorts. Time will tell. But whatever its future, I stand now as being thrilled that it received some recognition, and even more thrilled that the fans have reacted to it so wonderfully. As a taste of the kind of response it’s been generating, check out this review from horror blogger Char Hardin. It warms the heart cockles!
