With Martha posing as Ray's sister, they bilk elderly spinsters and widows of their savings and then viciously murder them in a bloodbath of sexual frenzy.

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Jack Smith and the Destruction of Atlantis" Director Mary Jordan

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW: "Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon" Director Scott Glosserman

    Scott Glosserman's suspense/horror "Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon" centers on a seemingly nice small-town guy whose aspirations are to become the world's next great psycho slasher in the vein of Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers.
