Greg Lamberson Wraps DRY BONES, Announces New Production Slate
Author and filmmaker Gregory Lamberson (Slime City Massacre, The Jake Helman Files) has wrapped principal photography on the horror comedy Dry Bones and has announced a full slate of upcoming independent feature film projects.
Lamberson wrote Dry Bones, which he co-produced and co-directed with Michael O’Hear, who stars alongside Debbie Rochon, who endured a seven hour make-up and costuming process to become the succubus Lilim. “We shot Dry Bones over 19 days, mostly on weekends,” says Lamberson. “It looks terrific and the performances are first rate. I put together a great team to make this, and I want to work with them on future projects. I‘d intended for Dry Bones to be my last micro-budget feature, but it was such a good shoot, the best I’ve been on since Slime City Massacre, that I’m ready to dive into other projects. ”
First up is The Legend of Six Fingers, written and directed by Sam Qualiana, who created Snow Shark: Ancient Snow Beast. Lamberson is producing. Six Fingers is a found footage film about two documentary filmmakers searching for a Bigfoot like creature which has three fingers on each hand. Rochon appears in the film and other horror icons will play roles as well. Craig Lindberg is creating the key special effects. http://www.indiegogo.com/

We share a love for monster movies, and since making Snow Shark he’s worked on Model Hunger, Return to Nuke Em High, Battledogs and now Dry Bones. That’s a hell of a filmmaking education, and he’s ready to make another film of his own. We wrapped Dry Bones last Wednesday, took a day off, then started shooting Six Fingers on Friday, before Debbie left.” Production continues through the summer.
Once Six Fingers has been completed, Lamberson will direct the comedy Killer Rack from a screenplay by Paul McGinnis, who appears in Dry Bones. Killer Rack concerns a young woman who gets breast implants which turn out to be possessed. “Paul’
Last on Lamberson’s slate is Frankenstein’
