Horror journo Jerry Smith makes his short film Love is Dead available for free
Our pal Jerry Smith, prolific film journo and writer for this very website as well as Blumhouse.com and Icons of Frights, has made a short film about the horrors of love gone toxic and he wants to share it with you.
The film — written and directed by Smith — is called Love is Dead. It’s billed as an “emotional horror short” and stars adult film actors Aaron “Small Hands” Thompson and Joanna Angel as a couple on the precipice of psycho-sexual disaster. Ruben Pla (Insidious, Big Ass Spider) also stars.
Says Smith of his film: “I strove to make an emotional horror short about the destructive and abusive power of what we say,” explains Smith. “While writing the script, I was in the middle of a painful divorce, one that had many ups and even more downs throughout the eight years we were married. It was a toxic relationship and one which became very emotionally violent, leading both of us down very upsetting and destructive paths. My real life motivated the writing Love Is Dead, the story of my ex-wife and I and how sometimes something very beautiful and full of love can eventually turn into something painful and full of hate.”
