The first review for my feature film debut is out, and, well, it is what it is. Thank you to Elements of Madness for taking the time to provide such thoughtful coverage. I’m not ashamed or embarrassed. Rather, I find triumph in the film’s completion and distribution, because we got out there and did something. Not only that, but we learned a hell of a lot while we were at it. We will absolutely do better next time.

Side note: the critic, Douglas Davidson, and I are childhood friends reunited decades later through the wonders of social media. There was something strange about arranging the press screener for him, but I appreciate that he was as good as his word and gave the film a fair and impartial review.

When sharing the link to his review on Facebook, Douglas was also kind enough to highlight my performance in particular. “I don’t say this because he’s my friend, but Gregory Crafts was the only stand-out (except for the extra-campy Richard Epcar) as his performance was solid and his character actually seemed to have an arc to it. If Trey had been the main character, and he was fighting for his soul, that would have been interesting to watch.”

About Altered Spirits

In the meantime, if you want to check out what all the hubbub’s about, here’s a quick synopsis:

Four young people are pulled into an alternate dimension through a portal in a sweat lodge. On the other side four murderous spirits of centuries-old gold hunters await to steal the young peoples’ bodies and return to the living world.

Altered Spirits is now available on DVD and Amazon Instant streaming. Maybe turn it into a drinking game.
