I am the evil midnight writer what writes at midnight!

Spoke too soon...
So after announcing that I was finished on the script I've been working on forever and how I was all happy with it and stuff, I got more notes. Anyway, I took my own advice and gave it a rest for a bit, then worked on the script Sunday evening. Spent most of the weekend watching Hammer films - Plague of the Zombies is still my favourite. There's something especially chilling about the scene where a recently reanimated Jacqueline Pearce advances on Andre Morrell, grinning in a rather horrifying manner. Plus the script is ace and keeps up a good pace and there's some good social commentary in there. If you've never seen it I recommend checking it out.
I'm a writer with a day-job which means I don't usually get down to writing until around ten in the evening, hence the blog title. My first feature as a writer, Ten Dead Men, was released on DVD in 2009. I'm currently working on a series of short horror films following the adventures of a witch called Jenny Ringo. There are currently three films in the series - Jenny Ringo and the Monkey's Paw, Jenny Ringo and the Cabaret from Hell and Jenny Ringo and the Infinite Spellbook. You can find out more at www.jennyringo.com. I live in Worthing, which is a bit like Innsmouth.
