Nov. 4, 2011 - PRLog -- “The Funny Man,” independent filmmaker Jake Barsha’s horror web-series debut exclusively produced and distributed by Dailymotion.com and co-starring Don Danielson, received 50,000 views on Halloween over a 24-hour period and has received over 250,000 views in its Dailymotion.com airdates, according to Right Hook Films, the production company for the web-series.  The horror web-series debuted on Dailymotion.com Tuesday, October 25, 2011 with ten original episodes which aired through Thursday, November 3, 2011 to round out fall and winter programming.

“The Funny Man,” is a psychological horror thriller web-series in the vein of PSYCHO, featuring a compelling villain who videotapes his victims, demanding that they say something funny on camera prior to killing them. The murder scenes bring viewers into the deranged mindset of a psychopath, and the violence is realistically chaotic and painful.

“The Funny Man” is written, directed, produced and edited by Jake Barsha who made his feature film debut in January 2009 with the independently produced movie EUGENE, which received its world premiere at The Palm Springs International Film Festival.  Eleven other U.S. and international film festival screenings followed, garnering rave press reviews and warm accolades for “Eugene” from festival programmers. “Eugene” left audiences squirming in their seats at what The Palm Springs Film festival acclaimed as “a brilliantly disturbing psychological thriller.”

The Funny Man cast includes:  Ryan Reyes (Eugene); Abby Wathen (The Sinners, The Intruders, Skeletons in the Desert); Leslie Easterbrook (The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween); David Fine (The Red Door, Stricken, Blood Ties);  Nikki Tomlinson (Date Night), Shaun Gerardo (X-Men: First Class, Fast and Furious, The Kingdom), Domiziano Arcangeli (Scary or Die, Orgy of Blood, House of Flesh Mannequins); Don Danielson (Step One Breathe, Sprinkles, Malpractice); with Sam Aidun, Melissa Beithan, Lauren Bruniges, Devon Buck, Jessica Cameron, Sierra Collins, Amanda Gamel, Casey Moeckel, Michael Musa, Chelsea Vincent and Chris Watkins.

“The Funny Man” is produced by Jake Barsha for Right Hook Films.  Matthew Prater  is assistant director and co-producer; Frank Tobin is co-producer;  Yuki Noguchi is director of photography;  Adam Taylor is production designer and 2nd unit director; Erik Diener is art director and unit production manager; Matt Brailey is sound designer; special FX are by Matt Gonos; Elliott Goldkind has provided an original music score; Amanda Gamel is choreographer.
