“Being a 55 year old adult I grew up with Vincent Price”. Said artist Pat Broderick, “His tremendous body of work entertained a young man who was lucky enough to be aloud to stay up past midnight to watch all of his classic horror movies. Those were the best, no hacking, no guts in your face. When Bluewater offered me this I knew that it would be fun. I approached the storytelling in a wide screen story boarding format, which is perfect for this story”.
