You think your Relatives are Nuts

This just in

Texas producer Stephen Dyer (Ball in the House, Finding North) has a new film out on video. It's called Relative Evil and stars Jonathan Tucker, Jennifer Tilly and David Straithern. It's a slice of life indie-film about a young kid trying to overcome his past despite some pretty heavy influence from his family and friends. It's an interesting picture and well worth the rental. Besides that, this film has the dubious honor of having me as a bookkeeper in my early bookkeeping days.

Besides that... this film has a cameo by none other than Jonah Marsh, also known as Lisa Petersen. Lisa graced the stages of Trinity HS around the same time I was playing women 50 years my senior at Richland HS. In this movie, Jonah/Lisa gives a brutally honest portrayal of a young mom in rehab. She's an extremely gifted actress and I hear a great writer as well. She's currently working as a writer's assistant for some guy who wrote a little screenplay called, "Apollo 13".

For those of you not in the know when it comes to the film biz, getting an indie company or film off the ground is grueling, once-you've-completed-one-task-twelve-more-are-in-its-place kind of work. If you have Netflix (which I love) or that Blockbuster equivalent, or even if you just rent alot of movies, then you should rent this one. You'd be supporting the arts and helping out Texas Filmmakers. And think, if we make a dent, maybe I can hit Stephen up for a part in his next big movie!

So get this movie from your local video store. If they don't have it, pitch a fit and raise some hell until they get it. Once you've seen it you can tell me what you think here.

I'd love to see what you have to say.....
