Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here. Albert Pyun started his career working for the great Akira Kurosawa, which automatically makes him cooler than 99% of everyone in the film industry. Lately, he’s been very productive, and he seems like he’s really proud of the work he’s been doing. Sure, he’s made a shitload of Canon films over the years, and some low-budget dogs, but he also made the dark and sleazy and completely awesome SWORD AND THE SORCERER back in 1981, and there’s a bit of news about that film at the end of his letter to us that will make Harry hoot so loud you’ll be able to hear him wherever you are as you read this. Check it out!
Hi Drew: Hope this finds you and your family well. Just wanted to let you know I am finishing a film that will be my best. It’s my next step up in my evolution as a filmmaker (I know it’s pretty damn late in the game). The film is titled LEFT FOR DEAD, and it’s a spaghetti western fever dream with pretty serious gothic horror overlays. I have a DVD screener I'd love to send you if you have the time and interest. BTW -- Lions Gate is releasing INFECTION in December. They are re-titling it INVASION. Hope you get a chance to catch that as well. And let Harry know that I'm making a sequel to THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER in Tunisia in October. It's titled, what else, TALES OF THE ANCIENT EMPIRE. Warmest Regards, Albert
