  • Product Description: Much like the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster in 1986, I can tell you exactly where I was the first time I watched Return of the Living Dead in 1985. It was showing at the late, great Fox Theater in downtown Stevens Point, WI, and I went with my friends Brad Overacker and Brian Chojnacki (pronounced "why-not-ski" believe it or not). We were damn near close to being the only ones in the theater and it was… a life changer, to put it mildly, as if God Himself had dumped a great big cosmic bucket of chum on top of my head Carrie-style. Zombies that moved with the quickness? Humor drenched in velvet waves of rich, dark red blood? A punk soundtrack that made you want to fuck the dead? Okay, okay, I sure as heck didn't go full-blown "Code Blue," but I'll be damned if Dan O'Bannon's riotous feast of flesh didn't push my pen in a more definitive gory direction—one that would soon meet the heretofore unknown world of skateboarding like a glorious match made in Hell. So yes, this is indeed my love letter to the horror genre and all the great B-movie girls like Linnea Quigley, AKA Trash, who made my heart say anything for the strange.
