Scott S. Phillips, author of Squirrel Eyes and Tales of Misery & Imagination and writer/director of zombie flick cult classic Stink Of Flesh, has just released the annotated script for his film Gimme Skelter as a fine new book (which just happens to feature some material from yours truly) available now for your Kindle!
In case you haven’t heard, Gimme Skelter was a high-point in Indie filmmaking in the DVD era, just before the advent of Netflix, streaming videos, and the proliferation of DVD-on-demand sellers. Skelter tells the tale of a small New Mexico town, overrun by a new wave of sadistic Mansonites, led by a man who deems himself the lost son of Ol’ Charlie himself. Featuring performances by genre mainstays like Billy Garberina, Kurly Tlapoyawa, Trent Haaga, Elske McCain and original LeatherfaceGunnar Hansen, and music from the likes of Spindrift, Gimme Skelter is one of the most surprising low-budget thrillers I have ever seen.

Hey, hey! Lady E!
ha ha. I kept reading that as “Masonites,” and was like, “huh?”
“Mansonites.” That would make much more sense, especially considering the poster/cover. I’ll put it on the list.
