Writer/director Joe Badon’s surreal arthouse-meets-grindhouse debut feature The God Inside My Ear made my Gruesome Magazine top 10 films of 2018 list, and now the Louisiana filmmaker has released the trailer for his follow-up feature Sister Tempest, which promises to be at least as outré as its predecessor.
The film’s description states: “Anne Hutchinson’s troubled relationship with her missing sister is under alien tribunal. Meanwhile, her new roommate’s mysterious illness causes her to go on a cannibalistic killing spree.” Judging from this trailer, viewers can expect more of the eye-popping visuals, surreal sequences, clever nods to classic films from horror and other genres, and, of course, the unexpected, that The God Inside My Ear served up. Besides being a filmmaker, Badon is also an outstanding artist, comic book writer and illustrator, and musician. Cinema is a perfect medium for this multitalented creative to explore his visions.
Joseph Perry fell in love with horror films as a preschooler when he first saw the Gill-Man swim across the TV screen in "The Creature from The Black Lagoon" and Mothra battle Godzilla in "Godzilla Vs. The Thing.” His education in fright fare continued with TV series such as "The Twilight Zone" and "Outer Limits," along with legendary northern California horror host Bob Wilkins’ "Creature Features." His love for silver age and golden age comic books, including horror titles from Gold Key, Dell, and Marvel started around age 5.
He is a contributing writer for the "Phantom of the Movies VideoScope" and “Drive-In Asylum” print magazines and the websites Horror Fuel, Diabolique Magazine, The Scariest Things, B&S About Movies, and When It Was Cool. He is a co-host of the "Uphill Both Ways" pop culture nostalgia podcast and also writes for its website. Joseph occasionally proudly co-writes articles with his son Cohen Perry, who is a film critic in his own right.
A former northern Californian and Oregonian, Joseph has been teaching, writing, and living in South Korea since 2008.
