BROWN DIRECTOR JOSEPH NANNI'S SHORT FILMS GARNER HUGE APPLAUSE FROM HORROR FANS


Two of Brown director Joseph Nanni's short films are enjoying immense success on the horror film festival circuit. The first short, titled "Elder Sign", is a spoof infomercial for the cure you need "when suffering from an overwhelming sense of dread brought on by the realization of your own insignificance in the universe." After appearing in nineteen festivals in 2009, it is still being selected for festival screenings worldwide.

"The Necronomicon" has been selected to screen this year at over twenty festivals, including the Chicago Horror Festival, the NYC Horror Festival, and ShockerFest LA. Another spoof infomercial inspired by horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, "The Necronomicon" satires an old commercial for the Book of Mormon. Two characters seated in a diner discuss books they’re reading, and one pulls out a book to show to the other. This time, instead of the Book of Mormon, it’s the Necronomicon Spellbook.

DreadCentral.com describes "The Necronomicon," screened at Fantasia Montreal 2010, as "a hilarious infomercial length satire…A perfect bite-sized joke with pitch perfect marketing-speak dialog. Tailor made for horror fans."

This past Friday "The Necronomicon" was the opening film at The Toronto After Dark film festival.
