Derek Huey Lives!!!


By - Stephen Mezo

Thanks to Thomas Gleba at Nerdremix.com I was made aware that Derek Huey is still out there. 

Yeah he's always been out there, but I mean I kind of lost track of him with a lot of things that was going on Planet Steve...  



Well it tuns out he just finished a horror short for a contest entry by the name of "I'm Sorry" and let me see a digital screener! I can't post a link to it until Derek officially releases it, but I have to say that he did it again!

I don't want to give anything away so I can't talk about the plot, but you can see Derek's growth as a Writer/Director with each release. And he is still that master of pulling the uncomfortable laughs out of his audience. I don't know how he does it, but he has a way of doing it without using any kind of obvious shock gags. It's like seeing somebody fall on the ice or walk into a glass door or wall with a huge fountain drink. You know that you shouldn't laugh but you find yourself doing it anyway. 

He told me he was trying to get away from doing that but I'm glad he didn't. Because it's like his signature the same as Alfred Hitchcock's cameos and the famous 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 that we know so well. 

And I can say that I really liked the story line and can't wait to get the link up for everyone to see it soon!
