    Shriekfest Radio! Denise Gossett interviews screenwriter Nick Morris!

    in Paranormal

    Nick often imagined what his own “perfect horror movie” would look like. Inspired by the fun and imaginative 80’s fright-flicks he grew up watching over and over, he would go on to write UNDEATH, his first screenplay.


    Shortly thereafter, UNDEATH would be named a ShriekFest finalist, as well as a R.I.P. Horror FilmFest finalist. Nick is thoroughly committed to seeing his dream realized on screen and is currently adapting UNDEATH into a TV series.


    Nick is a loving husband, father of two and owner of an extensive collection of horror memorabilia that has been almost entirely relegated to the darkest corner of the basement.
