The Hermetic Hour for July 19th, 2012 will feature a discussion moderated by your host Poke Runyon on the just released avant-garde (that's low-budget stylish) black & white grainy, creepy and 1920ish film SHADOWS written and directed by Richard Becker, Produced by Ed Fitch and starring, among others, your kindly old wizard-host as the murderous patriarch of a vampire clan. Shadows began production on weekends back in 1997 at Ed's spacious and decrepit manse in Midway City. The plot was suggested by Ed and involved innocent girls invited to a role-playing vampire game that turns out to be the real thing. We were hosting these events at Ed's and at Rivendell in those days, so why not make a movie? Richard Becker spent most of the twelve years on this project trying to piece together this weekend footage and make it into something that is actually stylish and fun to watch -- if you like this sort of thing. The film is now available on DVD on the internet. So tune in and we'll have the producer, the writer-director and one of featured players give you the inside story on SHADOWS.
