Howdy folks, and welcome to the official website of Reel Splatter Productions! We're a small independent horror-comedy troupe and our goal is to prove artistic expression can involve necrophilia & chainsaws! Step right up and see some horrible monstrosities commit unspeakable acts! For questions, comments, or press inquiries, please contact Mike Lombardo.

7/29/2016 - HUGE NEWS! The official trailer for our first feature length film "I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday" is LIVE!

The awesome fiends over at Dread Central broke the news earlier today, so head on over and check it out!

2/1/2016 - Howdy fiends, got some news for ya! I was last week’s guest on the very cool podcast, The Horrorshow with Brian Keene. I talk White Doomsday, my origin story as a horror fan, the perils of indie filmmaking, and the very NSFW tale of my short lived Vine career. “The best episode of The Horroshow yet!” raves three people! People don’t lie about stuff like that…do they?

In other very NSFW news, my short story, “Just Like The Real Thing” was just published in the bizarre erotica anthology, Strange Sex 3 from New Kink Books! It’s the embarrassingly autobiographical tale of an awkward 18 year old virgins’s first trip to the porn store. I’m told it’s the most hilarious and disgusting thing I’ve ever written, and with an endorsement like that, how could you not pick up a copy in paperback or Kindle?

On the White Doomsday front, post production continues to move along at a good pace. I almost have a full rough cut done, so there should be a teaser trailer coming in the next couple months!

Until next time, keep it reel!

1/10/2016 - Hey there folks, got some major news from the wasteland for ya!

Some of you fans may have already seen this when Fangoria Magazine ran the exclusive a couple days ago, but for those who haven't, it is my pleasure to unveil the delightfully 80's poster art for our upcoming feature film, "I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday" created by the insanely talented Marc Schoenbach of Sadist Art Designs, the madman responsible for the killer cover of The Stall!

Post production continues to move along nicely, and we will have some more updates for ya' soon!

In other news, the incredibly awesome limited VHS edition of Adam Cesare's newest book, "Zero Lives Remaining" was released not too long ago. Reel Splatter was brought on board to do a blood splattered photo set of scenes from the book to put on the faux VHS box the book is housed in, we also did a fake trailer featuring some eye popping arcade fun! The book comes signed by the author and includes a trifold insert with an "actor" interview as well as more gory fx pics AND a set of Funcave trading cards signed by the cast (and yours truly!) As of this update there are still a handful (I believe a dozen or so) of copies left, so don't miss out on the coolest limited edition book ever made! Still skeptical? Check out this awesome unboxing video from the super cool Kevin Foster.

That's it for now folks, stay tuned for some more news!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 17th, 2015

From Grandmaster Award winning author Brian Keene comes a disturbing post-apocalyptic Christmas Horror Story.

Writer/director Mike Lombardo aligns with author Brian Keene to bring a bleak horror story about a family trying to survive in the post-apocalypse during the most wonderful time of year.

Central PA - Brian Keene, bestselling author of such notable novels as “The Rising”, “Ghoul”, and “Castaways”, has teamed up as executive producer with frequent collaborator, writer/director Mike Lombardo (The Stall, Long Pig) of Reel Splatter Productions on the post-apocalyptic Christmas horror story I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday.

Having just wrapped filming in Pennsylvania, White Doomsday tells the tale of Kelly and her son Riley, weathering the end times in a bomb shelter amidst the ruin that once was the world. With supplies and hope steadily declining, Kelly makes a horrifying decision that will cause her to discover just how far she would go for her child, and what lurks outside.

“What started as a short film we were shooting on the weekends just sort of took on a life of its own and kept growing until we realized we had a feature on our hands.” says Lombardo. “I’m usually known for doing the more comedic end of horror, so I think fans of Reel Splatter are going to be surprised at how bleak, disturbing, and nihilistic this one is. It goes to some pretty dark places.”

Starring Damian Maffei (Joe R. Lansdale's Christmas with the Dead, Closed for the Season), I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday will be ready to make it's way in the summer of 2016.

To learn more about the film, be sure to follow Reel Splatter Productions on Facebook and check out Brian Keene's website.

8/19/2015 - Howdy fiends, got lots of cool news! If you were thinking to yourself, “Damn, I wish I had a new raunchy, disgusting, and mildly arousing Reel Splatter short to watch today,” then you are in luck! I finally got around to finishing “Blowjob in a Can”, the bizarre and very grotesque short we shot for the 10 year anniversary of Reel Splatter. . . Two years ago. Blowjob in a Can is the spiritual sequel to the classic Reel Splatter short Home-Made Roofies, and reunites the entire cast and crew! I know we announced this one a while back, but let's not focus on how long anyone procrastinated on post production, lets focus on the glorious fact that its finally finished and ready for you to watch absolutely FREE! Check it out here on YouTube.

Speaking of projects that should have been done years ago, Brian Keene’s Fast Zombies Suck, a short film I worked on as part of Drunken Tentacle Productions (a fun side project I’m involved in with horror author Brian Keene and some very cool friends). I did some nasty FX work and served as a 2nd Unit Director as well as doing the foley. It had its world premiere at Scares That Care Weekend in VA a couple weeks ago and we recorded a live Q&A for The Horrorshow With Brian Keene podcast after the screening. Check out the short here on YouTube -- and then if you want to listen to me give a very unfiltered, brutally honest look at the horrors of indie filmmaking, listen to the podcast here.

And last but certainly not least, some production updates on our newest project, “I’m Dreaming of a White Doomsday”: we just completed day 17 of filming and are edging into our final stretch of production . Things are going spectacularly and I couldn’t be happier with the footage so far. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the movie, it’s the film adaptation of the short of the same name, written by yours truly and available in the killer anthology, “A Very StrangeHouse Christmas.” It’s the incredibly dark story of a young mother and her 7-year old son living out their final days in a bomb shelter during the apocalypse. Oh, and it’s a Christmas movie! It’s Miracle on 34th Street meets The Road, sure to become the feel good holiday movie of the year. Since you kiddies have been so patient, here are few more screenshots:

That’s all for now folks, as always for the most up to date news and more behind the scenes pics than you can shake a stick at, like us on Facebook!

Keep it reel,

-Mike “Dr.Chud” Lombardo

5/25/2015 - Hey there Splatter fiends! Been awhile, I know. I find myself starting most of these sporadic updates with apologies, so why stop a good thing? Sorry for updating so infrequently folks, there have been loads going on here (including a complete website overhaul coming soon which will mean actual regular updates here). There is much to discuss but little time to discuss it so I'll get right to the good stuff.


Our newest project, “I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday” is based on the incredibly depressing short story by yours truly (which is available in the fantastically bizarre, “A Very StrangeHouse Christmas”.

Check out a couple teaser screenshots!

And here's some behind the scenes photos:

It's the story of a mother and her 7-year old son living out their final days in a bomb shelter at the end of the world. Oh, and it's about Christmas too. The best way I can pitch it is The Road meets Miracle on 34th Street. It's a big departure for us, as this is 100% serious, pitch black drama: no laughs in this one folks.

We're about 12 days into shooting, with another 6 or 7 to go. White Doomsday will mark not only our longest, but also most ambitious project yet. The footage so far is fucking fantastic and makes The Stall look like public access. We're knee deep in production and hoping to wrap by the end of summer, with the final film sometime early next year. If you want to see a more or less day by day behind the scenes log, check out our Facebook page for a whole slew of behind the scenes and FX pics.

Second item of business: Reel Splatter will be attending Scares That Care Weekend Film Festival and Convention in Williamsburg, VA July 23-26th. We will have DVDs, skin ornaments, and posters for sale -- so stop by and harass us! We will also be premiering “Brian Keene's Fast Zombies Suck”, a short film I did FX and various crew stuff on as part of the side project Drunken Tentacle Productions. It will be premiering as part of An Evening With Brian Keene on the 23th at the convention.

That's all for now, we have some more huge news coming but I'm not allowed to talk about it yet, so keep checking back and please “Like” us on Facebook for the most up to date nonsense!

Stay tuned fiends, there’s more gore in store soon!

5/7/2014 - Howdy Splatter fiends, we got some very jawsome bits of news for you! We made it back in one piece from our journey to Motor City Nightmares in Detroit. The Stall screened to an awesome crowd and we sold out of DVDs! Thank you folks for being so damn supportive and cool! We will definitely be back next year! REEL SPLATTER LOVES MICHIGAN!

Next on the agenda, we are very honored to inform you that The Stall is an Official Selection of TromaDance Film Festival in Brooklyn, NY (June 27-28th)! I spent my innocent young formative years rabidly tracking down every Troma flick I could on vhs and it's influence on my work is staggering. My guerrilla film school began with The Toxic Avenger and Lloyd Kaufman's insane and wonderful tirades about independent film, so to have my work being screened by Troma is a wonderfully surreal full circle moment for me!

And finally. . . REEL SPLATTER T-SHIRTS ARE BACK! It's been a long time I know, but our resident madman actor/graphics wizard/LEGO builder extraordinaire Baron von Brunk just sent us some beautiful new shirt designs and they are up for pre-order right now!

"Coming soon to a torso near you!"

We are starting with a very limited run of the new Dr. Chud shirts, and depending on how sales go, we will do a run of The Stall t-shirts in a month or so. These are beautifully DTG printed (direct-to -garment, NOT cheap heat transfers) shirts on black 100% cotton Gildan tees. We have sizes Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, 2XL, and 3XL shirts available in VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES. Shirts are $20 each with $3.50 shipping and handling. If you want one please use the PayPal link below to pre-order yours before they are gone! Please put your desired size in the comments section of the PayPal checkout. Shirts should be arriving at Reel Splatter HQ in about two weeks and will be shipping within a day or two of that.

As always, thank you for your continued support, you guys and gals make this insanity worth it!

Keep it reel!

10/31/2013 - Giant Reel Splatter Update: The Blasphemous Terrors from outside Time and Space Edition!

Well folks, it looks like the stars have aligned and the Great Old Ones have decided it is time for The Stall! It’s a very different film from what we’ve done in the past but that’s a good thing, this one is very much more horror oriented (not without comedy, but that’s a little more in the background this time around). It’s a tale of Lovecraftian horror about a young pizza shop employee who finds himself stuck the bathroom during the apocalypse!

We have been working on this for two and half years and to say we are proud would be the understatement of the fucking century! We have sacrificed all of our money, social lives, and sanity to bring this screaming, slimy little flick to life and we hope you enjoy it! The movie is available to watch online at YouTube; we’re also planning on a huge film festival tour, and within the month it will be released as a Limited Collector’s Edition DVD filled with the crazy ass special features you’ve come to expect of us. Among other things, the DVD will have a new edition of Backyard Splatter 101 where I will show you how to make your own tentacles and how to make disgusting slimy noises for your own Lovecraftian opus! We’re planning at least 3 commentary tracks, behind the scenes featurette, Visual FX comparisons, On set tour, and the Uncut version of the hilarious and nastier than hell definitely NSFW Testoroseroso music video for Chew Toy (which features the cast and crew from The Stall as well as some super nasty gory bits made by yours truly!). More details on the DVD release coming soon! In the meantime, please watch the movie, give it the thumbs up on YouTube, comment and spread the word! We need your help to make The Stall a success, you guys and gals have always been there for us in the past and we hope you stick with us into this new era of Reel Splatter! Post it on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, your favorite message board --and if you are a Lovecraft fan, send it to your fellow cult members!

With that, let me be the first to say, I’ai Cthuhlu F’tagn! (That’s Lovecraftian for enjoy the movie!)

-Mike "Dr. Chud" Lombardo


10/2/2013 - Hey folks, I recently got the chance to ramble at the fine folks from Horror Addicts! Check out this totally boss interview with yours truly where I talk indie film, crossing the line, exploitation, gore, nudity and The Stall! Speaking of The Stall, did I mention it's going to be out this Halloween? Or at least it should be, so don't quote me on that... But seriously, we are frighteningly close to being done with it and I think you folks are going to dig it like a grave! Shit, wasn't that funny? God, I'm hilarious!

OH! I almost forgot, (this update is turning into a grossly unprofessional stream of consciousness ramble isn't it?). Reel Splatter STARTED A VINE CHANNEL! That's right kids, those obnoxious, unclever and mostly racially insensitive 6 second videos you can watch on your smartphone until you die of A.D.D. -- well now WE MAKE THEM TOO! Search #ReelSplatter on the Vine app, make sure you're not near your mom or a church, and enjoy! It goes without saying that these are extremely NSFW. In fact, they contain some of the most fucked up stuff we've ever done! Give em' a looksee, and please Like, Comment and Revine! Ah yes, and please Follow us so you can keep up to date on the nasty little bastards!

Well folks, it's almost 4am and I am falling asleep as I type this for our sultry webmaster, Baron von Brunk, so I'm going to wrap it up for now. Keep checking back for more updates on The Stall and be sure to head over to our Facebook fan page for the most current news!

8/14/2013 - Hey there folks! Got some totally boss news for ya! Things have been very busy here at Reel Splatter HQ. We are in the late stages of post production on our new short, “The Stall” and are hoping for a mid-September release. I cut together a very quick look at two of the visual FX bits we did including the first peek at one of the tentacles that inhabit the movie!

The Stall Visual F/X Teaser

In other news, our wonderfully talented graphics slave, Baron von Brunk just unveiled our new business card designs! What do you think?

Our buddies from the awesome band, I Am The Trireme just released their new music video, shot by our very talented DP, Dyan SC and featuring lots of black goop courtesy of yours truly! It also stars Melissa Seery (the lovely gal from the opening of Long Pig) and as a goop covered body double, everyone's favorite sharp toothed femme fatale Kaleigh Brodbeck (Chew-Toy)!

Give it a look see, but be forewarned, NOT SAFE FOR WORK!

The Splatter gang will be at MonsterMania in NJ this Friday, so if you’re there, look for the weirdoes in the RS shirts and come say Hi! I might just have free copies of Suburban Holocaust for anyone that spots us!

That’s it for now Splatter fiends, but no worries, there are more updates to come!

Keep it reel,

-Mike Lombardo

2/2/2013 - I realize that every update here always starts with “sorry about the lack of updates folks, but. . . ” and this one is no different. I really am sorry about these binge updates, but I have good reasons I swear! Also, if you want current and up to date news on the disturbing goings on of myself and Reel Splatter, please like the Reel Splatter Facebook page; I update it a couple times a week and there are exclusive FX and behind the scenes photos and news. Feel free to harass my personal profile page as well if you’d like to chat.

Okay, so now onto the most epic update you will ever see here:

“Where The Hell I Have Been” by Mike Lombardo

Since the last update, we’ve been a bit busy on a movie called “The Stall”. I have made mention of it here a few times but never really gave any real info. Well. . .

The Stall is the story of a young pizza shop employee (played by Skot Shaub, star of Womb For Two!) who finds himself facing the Lovecraftian apocalypse while trapped in a public restroom. I don’t believe I’ve ever been more proud of a project in my entire life. It’s so far beyond anything you have seen from us before, and yes, there are tentacles! We started shooting this one back in October of 2011, simultaneously with the Japanese ghost movie portion of Long Pig. Since then, we have continued shooting sporadically, including about 40 hours of reshoots and pick-ups in the last 4 months. Well, it’s in the can now and we are in the arduous process of editing the beast. I don’t have a release date on this one yet, but it should be out sometime this spring 2013.

I’ve found myself doing quite a bit of FX work for various films as well:

• Bloodlines: a short from Crow Brothers Productions (available on DVD) - I made some naughty bits for them to cut off among other things, fun stuff!

• Lucidum a short film by Reflective Media (not yet released) - Highlight of this one was putting a girl’s face into a hot frying pan!

Super nasty stuff!

• Repulsed by the Sun: a music video for "I Am The Trireme" (currently in production) - Lots of black goop and some nekkid ladies!

• Cornface: a film by Edward Lee Studios (currently in production) - Edward Lee is my all time favorite author and this is his first film, it promises to be absolutely vile!

Speaking of Edward Lee, I recently had the honor of playing a bar redneck in the film adaptation of his incredibly disgusting book, “The Bighead” from director Michael Ling which premieres on March 30th in Hollywood, CA!

I flew out to Los Angeles for 3 days and had a fucking blast on set! If you like Reel Splatter, you will fucking love this movie!

• Brian Keene’s Fast Zombies Suck by Drunken Tentacle Productions - (currently in post production) - This is a really awesome short from a side project I’m involved with called Drunken Tentacle Productions led by horror author Brian Keene (who cameoed not only in Demonstration of The Dead and A Reel Splatter Halloween, but also The Stall!) - I did a bunch of head shots and other nastiness for this, look for it soon!

Here’s a fun video of me testing the blood cannon I built for the FX!

• And finally, Chew Toy - a music video for Testosteroso. This just got released a couple days ago and my god. . . I am so fucking proud of this video it hurts. It very well make you hurt a little bit watching it too. . . I did all of the Gore FX and cameo as a doctor/surgeon.

For you fans of books out there, I also got two short stories published:

• "Playplace": Aaron Warner hates his job. He’s a food service slave at McDonald’s and unfortunately for him, his shitty day job is about to get a lot worse. When the dead rise, he takes refuge in the twisting plastic labyrinth of the Playplace along with two fellow employees. Things seem okay at first, the undead can’t get in, but the unlucky trio soon realize that they can’t get OUT. The story is super gory and extremely bleak. It’s also the most personal (and in my opinion, the best) thing I have ever written. I am very proud of it.

Playplace appears alongside 11 other twisted tales of bizzaro zombie mayhem, in “Zombie! Zombie! Brain Bang!” by Strangehouse Books and is available on for only $12!

• I’m Dreaming of a White Doomsday: The story of the last Christmas. A starving mother and her child celebrate from the confines of a bomb shelter. Out in the smoking ruins of the world, a lone figure in a tattered red suit carrying a large sack over his shoulder searches for the last child to deliver one final gift. Probably the most depressing Christmas story you will ever read. It appears as part of a FREE e-book anthology from Strangehouse Books called “A Very Strangehouse Christmas”.

Due to some complications, it didn’t get out in time for Christmas but is due any day now, so keep checking for updates!

And finally, I had the distinct honor of doing an Q&A about Long Pig (which was shown as part of the curriculum) for a film course at University of Louisville! It was probably one of the coolest things I’ve ever had the pleasure of doing and I’m hoping I get to have a chance to do it again with The Stall!

So there you go folks, that’s where I’ve been. I apologize once again for my sporadic updates, but fear not, the delays are out of hectic schedules, not laziness! We have so much awesome stuff coming down the line in 2013 and I couldn’t ask for a better group of fans than you folks! Thanks for sticking with us, you make this insanity worth it!

Keep it reel,

-Mike “Dr.Chud” Lombardo

9/24/2012 - Monstrous and severely overdue update time!

Howdy there folks, lots of totally coolio and boss news to go over! First order of business: film festivals! The Reel Splatter gang has been on the road constantly the last 6 months for Long Pig’s tour on the film fest circuit. We had a hell of time, highlights include a 12 hour drive to Louisville, Kentucky whilst outrunning a tornado and ending up in a completely blacked out backwoods West Virginia at 3am getting chased by a 3 legged dog during a potty break, a crazy weekend in Detroit, and an even crazier one in Gettysburg. But alas, all good things must come to an end. Long Pig is reaching the last stops of its tour next month.

We are very honored to announce that Long Pig will be playing at Cinema Wasteland in Strongsville, Ohio as part of the Friday Night Shorts Block on October 5th and again on Sunday October 7th in the early afternoon. We also just received word that we will be playing at The Rumschpringe International Short Film Festival in Lancaster, PA sometime during October 25-27; we don’t have the exact date or time yet, but we will post it as soon as we get it.

Can’t make it to either of the screenings? Don’t fret, you can always pick it up on DVD, along with 9 other hilarious and bloodsoaked short films from us twisted fucks at Reel Splatter! Check out the Store page and order your copy of Suburban Holocaust: Reel Splatter Volume 1! All the proceeds go directly into funding the post production of our new short, “The Stall” (details on that coming very soon…)

Not sure if you want to plunk down your hard earned cash on the DVD? Don’t take our word for it, check out this awesome review of the Suburban Holocaust by our new friends in Sweden over at Independent Flicks. And just in case you missed it, here’s another great DVD review and an in depth interview with yours truly over at Horror Indies!

And finally be sure to head over to Hell Is Full for an awesome podcast review of Suburban Holocaust's Skyler Phalanges: Zombie Hunter and Demonstration of The Dead! Next week there will be news on our new Lovecraftian short, “The Stall”, as well as a fucking badass new short film “Fast Zombies Suck.” I did the FX for from a side project I created with horror author Brian Keene and some other cool filmmakers called Drunken Tentacle Productions,  so keep checking back! For the most current updates, be sure to Like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter!

As always, thank you for the support folks, none of this would be possible without such an awesome and supportive audience and we seriously love you guys!

The festival is June 29 to July 1st and is being headlined by legendary actor Bruce Campbell! The Reel Splatter crew is making the 12 hour trek across the country and will be there in full force, kissin' hands and shakin' babies! In addition to screening the film and getting irresponsibly intoxicated in a celebratory frenzy, we'll be manning our own table at the con, selling glow in the dark Reel Splatter t-shirts (the classic design will also be available), and Long Pig posters & DVDs! The proceeds from these blasphemous transactions will be funding the next flick, so come on out and help support indie cinema (or just get shit tanked with us)! We'll be pretty easy to spot, just look for good ol' Dr.Chud and the weirdos covered in blood!

There is a very good chance that you can hear me do a reading of  "Appetites" at the fest (you do not want to miss a live reading of this story, the audience reaction is fucking priceless), so that's double the reason to come on out!

There's more awesome news coming very soon, but you'll just have to wait a little bit kiddies! Well, I guess I better get back to editing "The Stall"...

Keep it reel,

-Mike "Dr.Chud" Lombardo



12/31/2011 - After 2 years, our new film “Long Pig” is FINALLY DONE! Words cannot describe how proud and excited I am right now. This movie alternated between being my baby and the bane of my existence for such a long time, but now it has come screaming and bloody out of the birth canal and onto the unsuspecting interwebs. I don't think I have ever been more proud of a project in my life, so I hope you folks enjoy watching it as much as we did making it. I would like to thank everyone who was involved in this crazy little bloodbath over the last few years; this film would not be half the movie it is without your blood, sweat, and tears. And of course a huge thanks to you, the audience: we would not be here without your love ad support. If you keep watching 'em, we'll keep making 'em! Now, overly-sappy sentiment aside, let's get down to it...

Long Pig

When three friends decide to get food, one missed turn transforms the idyllic summer afternoon into a deadly struggle for survival. A life affirming tale of friendship...and cannibalism.

We busted our asses making this, so please let us know what you think! Leave us nice feedback/hatemail on YouTube and if you are so inclined, please subscribe to our channel and “like” our Facebook page. For live ramblings, be sure to check us out on Twitter as well. It only takes a few minutes to help support indie cinema, so please help spread the word. Show your friends, family, awkward one night stands, fellow klansmen, anyone who will listen! Post it on facebook and/or your favorite forum -- after all, Reel Splatter is made possible through kind support from viewers like you!

Keep it reel,

-Mike “Dr.Chud” Lombardo




11/24/2011 - Hello there folks, how are you all doing? It's been a while, I know, but I'm back and I've got a few things to tell you about...

A lot of you dedicated fiends out there have been asking me about a little project called “Long Pig” I was talking about 2 years ago...Well, after the grueling principle photography wrapped on that flick, I got a little burned out and went away for a bit, leaving Long Pig gasping for breath halfway out of the birth canal. A lot has happened in my life, both personal and creative, in the last couple years. Among them was having the opportunity to meet some very talented people -- talented people who were kind enough to lend their hand in turning Long Pig into the film I always wanted it to be. I am extremely pleased to announce that Long Pig will be entering this world kicking, screaming, and covered in blood very soon! This one is a huge step forward for Reel Splatter, it's a very different film than you've seen from us before. Don't worry, it's still funny (hopefully), and it's definitely gory as hell, but it's a different style of film, one that I feel better expresses my writing and directing style. I think that you'll enjoy it. Keeping in the spirit of the holidays (and what better time of year than Thanksgiving Day to unveil news on Long Pig!), I decided to give you a little present...

This little beauty was done by our very good buddy Jason Pohlig over at Slightly Strange Studios, who I have been doing a nice assortment of outlandishly violent FX scenes for, in a nasty little upcoming short called “Til Death”. You'll be hearing a lot about that film very soon, so stay tuned!

"When three good friends decide to go get dinner, one wrong turn transforms the idyllic summer afternoon into a deadly struggle for survival..."


You are who you eat...

-Coming December 2011-

And finally, I would like to announce another film that is being released very soon from Reel Splatter Productions in association with Slightly Strange Studios, “The Stall”. It's the story of one man facing the a public restroom. I don't want to give too many details on this one yet, but I will say that if you're an H.P. Lovecraft fan, you will enjoy this one very much. The Stall is completely shot and we should start editing and scoring it in a few months. More details on that one will be coming soon. Until then, have a Happy Thanksgiving and make sure you "like” our facebook page for the most up to date information and pics!

Take care kiddles,

-Mike “Dr.Chud' Lombardo

P.S. - Our dear friend Baron von Brunk may be far away in seclusion, but he's still cranking out the awesome designs -- especially his recent LEGO Cthulu model!


12/14/2010 - Many moons have passed since our most recent update, and quite a lot has changed! For Halloween, Mr. Lombardo did his typical routine of creating helluva spectacular parties, and this year he truly outdid himself. The Massacre-ade Part II: Terror Born of the Atom was a shocking thrillride for the whole family. We had toxic waste, hazmat suits, a butcher shop, but above all, I dressed as Artie: The Strongest Man in the World (of "Pete & Pete" notoriety)! To see our photos, look for our Facebook page and be sure to like it.

Also, I personally ditched the 9 to 5 world and became a full member of AFTRA, the union for television and radio actors. Fortunately Reel Splatter is an indie film troupe (and not a public access channel), or else I'd be legally forbidden to star in any more short movies! To kick off my plunge into the world of for real for-real acting, I compiled a demo reel of my greatest Reel Splatter moments showcased:

9/7/2010 - HUGE NEWS!!!

Our film "Demonstration of The Dead" won the Fan Favorite Award at The Horrorfind Film Festival on Saturday! We competed against 31 films (which are listed here, along with the other winners) and took home the golden buzzsaw blade trophy! It was an honor to be in the running against such awesome flicks and we would like to thank all of the other filmmakers and the entire staff of Horrorfind Weekend for making this such a fantastic event! We are forever indebted to all of you kickass fans who came out to watch the film and to those who got bloody, grabbed a picket sign, and helped us launch the biggest marketing campaign we have ever attempted! It was a blast and a huge hit at the convention, most of which was captured on tape by filmmaker Nancy Gaglio, who is filming a documentary about me and my work in the splatter comedy genre! More details on that to come!

In other news, we are going to be getting back into the editing of our newest film "Long Pig" soon. It's a heartwarming story about friendship...and cannibalism. It also may be the nastiest thing we've ever shot, so get ready Splatter fans because things are going to get messy very soon! After Long Pig is released, we plan on starting production of our first official DVD release: a compilation disc of all of our short films spanning from 2005-2010. Each short will have at least 1 audio commentary, deleted scenes, blooper reels, and we're currently talking about some how-to no budget gore FX tutorials! The DVD is tentatively titled "Suburban Holocaust: Reel Splatter Volume 1" and will hopefully be available by summer of 2011.

That's it for now splatter fans! Thank you for all your support, Reel Splatter is made possible by viewers like you!

Keep it reel,

-Mike "Dr.Chud" Lombardo


8/24/2010 - Prepare for the one teaser trailer to rocketh thy world!
