It was July of
1982....summer before senior year. Sunset's class of '83, Bryan
Constans (BC), wrote and directed the original "Day of the Blood Mutant"
short movie, starring Michael Collier, as the blood mutant.
Some 3 decades later,
rumors were swirling about a possible sequel. BC starting
brainstorming ideas which eventually lead to a
rough draft script.
He teamed up with fellow '83 alum Robin Cressy, who had access to a
camcorder and a microphone.
Shooting began on March 23, 2013.....Release
date: August 10, 2013
