May is fed up with Jimmy's accusations, but the last straw comes after he hangs up on her mother during a long distance call to Japan.

When May commands Jimmy to make love to her, he is more than happy to oblige her, but when the next morning arrives, May becomes completely unhinged, picking up a switchblade and cornering Jimmy in the kitchen where she repeatedly stabs him, leaving blood everywhere.

Vampire Dinner (2014)




Synopsis:

Director Jay Jennings' "Vampire Dinner" combines elements of early 1970s Euro Horror, Roger Corman's "Poe" films of the 60s, and the classic TV show, "Dark Shadows."

The story concerns two mysterious people, Frederick and Lamia, who share a common interest in vampire folklore. On Hollow's Eve, Frederick arrives at Lamia's gothic estate. After they share a glass of Egri Bikavér (Bull's blood), Lamia prepares an authentic, Transylvanian dinner for two, yet only Frederick alone dines on the five course meal, as Lamia barely touches her food. 

As the evening progresses, the two exchange vampire stories, engaging in a verbal game of cat and mouse which leads to a startling conclusion. Daylight approaches and their true intentions are finally revealed.

The Making of "VAMPIRE DINNER"

The filming, editing, and post-production of "Vampire Dinner" was done over the course of one weekend in August 2014. With little-to-no sleep, writer-director-cinematographer-editor-composer, 
Jay Jennings, and his two actors gave it their all during a 48-hour schedule that included not only decorating the set, rehearsing the script and locking down the shots, but there was also the preparing and serving of an authentic, Transylvanian dinner that takes place during the course of the film, which featured the drinking of a rare bottle of Hungarian tokay wine called "Egri Bikavér" (Bull's blood). The film's dialogue was based on authentic, Hungarian vampire folklore.

Redneck Actor (2014)




Synopsis:

"Redneck Actor", takes an inside-look at the flip side of Hollywood's rich and famous....the life of a struggling, out-of-work actor and his unrealistic expectations of fame and wealth.

Carl (William Edward North) is a two-bit, character actor from Atlanta, Georgia, whose only claim to fame was that he once shared a small scene with Billy Bob Thorton at The Actors Studio. Carl considers himself an undiscovered genius on the verge of stardom.

In a series of bizarre vignettes, we follow Carl during his daily routine, which includes fighting with his agent who has no intention of finding Carl a job and then running into his oddball friends, which include a dog walker to the stars, a wannabe actress who sells oranges, and a stand-in for Isaac Hayes!

Carl is on a quest for that big film role that will finally give him his "15 minutes of fame", as he mindlessly searches for that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Knowing Carl, if and when his golden opportunity comes, he'll probably miss his big audition when once again his alarm clock fails to wake him up in time.


Carl wakes up late again, missing yet another audition.




Carl's agent tells him it would be best to find another career.
