FICTIONAL FRIGHTS: Sean Keller’s “Red Noise”

Zane & Brea Grant Strike In New “Giallo” Comic-Book LET’S PLAY GOD!

Now this is cool! Having known Zane Grant for a few years now, I know that we both have a tremendous fondness for the old-school Italian “Giallo” films. It was inevitable that he’d tackle a project in that vein eventually and now Zane and his sister Brea are following up their zombie epic “We Will […]
