Hollywood Deadbeat

Awaiting acceptance from the Berlin International Film Festival, Filmmaker Glen Coburn summons the Ghosts of Old Hollywood. He draws from one of his favorite movies, Insidious. Paranormal activity, is reported by the cast and crew at every location. A dream come true for, ghost hunters. Actress, Francis, Amy Adams, brought a Ouija board to the set and contacted a spirit who claimed to be, Marylin Monroe, The crew said that it was a bunch of bunk.
Set in the late 1980's, Hollywood Deadbeat follows the path of the ultimate loser whose desire to become a movie-maker may far outweigh his actual talent. As he reluctantly realizes that success is not just around the corner, he hits the bottle harder and harder and swiftly loses track of reality. Even as his wave of self-destruction reigns down on all who cross his path, those closest to him try desperately to help pull him back from the brink of disaster. Can he dry out long enough to get a grip and see that there's more to life than his unrealistic dreams? Or will the lure of fame and glamor in his Hollywood fantasy-land draw him deeper and deeper to the point of no return?

Rub a Dub Dub

Tenants in the building where Glen Coburn shot his film, claimed that a former resident was murdered in this bathtub. Sounds like the movie, Psycho.

Nice Jawline

He doesn't consider Hollywood Deadbeat a horror film but, paranormal activity, in the main location was rampant. Crew members laugh at the exertion of the building owner that the place was once rented by a Satanic cult. Bringing in an exorcist or, ghost hunter, was a joke the cast and crew got a kick out of. Cinematographer Russell Blair wasn't laughing because he realized that his best work would never make it to Sundance or Berlin or Cannes or SXSW. Better smoke another Marlboro, Russell. And how about a, Coca-Cola,

I Thought You Said This Was a Marlboro

The lead actors in Glen Coburn's indy horror film, Among the Dead, yucked it up between takes. It was obvious the prop master had replaced the water in the Vodka bottle with Absolut Vodka.

Look for this movie on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and HBO.

There are no devils, demons or, devil worshippers, in the film but there are plenty of cigarettes. Russell smokes Marlboro Light 100's and Glen Coburn smokes Newports. The lead actor smokes Camels and toots a little cocaine between takes. Maybe it's just a vicious rumor but he still finds it infuriating. "I don't do drugs," he says. "I hate weed, meth, opioids, MDMA, LSD, heroin and all the rest. Screw anyone who lies about that." The cast and crew are all a bunch of addicts. They’re addicted to, Oreo cookies, Ben and Jerrys, Twinkies, Snickers, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.

Do-Rag Alert
