  2. Nice, I have met and spoken with Brian numerous times at conventions on the East Coast some years back and actually own the original release of Bone Sickness as well as Fetus. Brian is insanely nice and what he does with his budgets and his passion for horror is nothing short of incredible. Really happy to see him show up here, Aaron.
