Daniel Kraus revisits the mini-VHS films from his teen years on his blog Francis Ford Iowa. He explains:
Hi. My name is Dan. I’m a novelist and filmmaker. You’re going to wonder how that’s possible after spending some time on this blog. See, when I was growing up in Iowa, I made movies with my friends. Many of them were remakes of movies I liked, like Misery or The Godfather. Others were originals, with catchy titles like The Bastard Chicken Clock from Hell and Dirt 2. But all of them were awful. And now, to lead up to the publication of my new book, The Monster Variations, I’m blogging my old movies chronologically for your enjoyment. So come with me, won’t you? Let’s feel the pain together.
