Reviewers interested in seeing the film please contact

Nashville, TN (09.24.2020) Red Headed Revolution in association with Shackle Island Studios and Dunn & Dunn Productions is kicking off the Halloween season with a new horror anthology film -Tales from Parts Unknown.

Tales from Parts Unknown is a feature-length anthology film presenting four tales of terror directed by Cameron McCasland and hosted by the Physician of Fright, Dr. Gangrene (Nashville, TN horror host Dr. Gangrene, played by Larry Underwood). The pair share the writing credits on the screenplay with the title of the film derived from Underwood's short story collection of the same name, in which one of the stories originated. 

Underwood & McCasland are bringing their long-standing brand of horror to the drive-in screens for the first time after multiple collaborations on television including the Emmy nominated Green with Dr. Gangrene PSA series, the half-hour Dr. Gangrene Presents, the made for TV movieThe Dreadful Hallowgreen Special, and the freshly produced Dr. Gangrene’s Cinetarium, which currently is airing its second season on the NECAT Network.

Two of the stories, Tailypo and The Prisoner of Perdition, toured film festivals, racking up over 50 awards and nominations including the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Award for Best Short Film and an Emmy nomination. They are presented along with two never before seen shorts (Retrieval Service and The Rider) and a wrap-around story.

In addition to Underwood appearing as Dr. Gangrene, the movie stars David Chattam (Star Trek: Picard), Wynn Reichert (Masterminds), Rebecca Lines (The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It), John Wells (Legends & Lies) Lee Vervoort (The Walking Dead), Kenneth Garner (Still the King), Wendy Keeling (Clown College), and Rusty James (Haven).

Tales from Parts Unknown will premiere during the Creepy Cruise-In at the Georgetown Drive-in in Georgetown, Indiana on October 3rd, and select drive-ins and special engagements in the following weeks.

Hindsight is 2020

As we close out the 2010s it seems natural to reflect back on the past decade. The 2010s were certainly a decade of change for me, both personally and professionally. On the personal front, an 18 year marriage ended in 2012. My TV show, Dr. Gangrene Presents, also stopped airing on Nashville’s CW station that same year. My dad passed away in 2017 and my biological father the following year. I lost 2 dogs in the span of 2 months in 2017 as well, including my best buddy Buster the dachshund.

 But, offsetting all of that, I have actually been more productive than I have been in YEARS. In 2013 I wrote a number of short stories, most of which were published in various outlets, and I published a short story collection called Dr. Gangrene’s Tales from Parts Unknown in 2014. I completed a Youtube series called The Fantastic Films of Vincent Price where I made a video for every single Vincent Price movie. I won 5 Rondo Awards in the 2010s, hosted movies at 2 drive-ins (including the annual Creepy Cruise-in in Georgetown, IN), kept our Horror Hootenanny punk show going (16 years and counting) and hosted the annual live show at Wonderfest with a number of special guests including Caroline Munro, Sara Karloff, Victoria Price, Bill Malone, and John Amplas.

2019 was my 20th Anniversary as a TV horror host. The first episode aired on July 1, 1999. To celebrate the event Dr. Gangrene returned to the Nashville scarewaves with a new show called Dr. Gangrene’s Cinetarium, which aired each week in October on Nashville’s CW 58 at 7pm Saturday nights.

This year I also: Won a Rondo Award for Best Column in Scary Monsters Magazine

 Published 78 Youtube videos

 Wrote 5 Scary Monsters Interviews:
#112 - Don Glut (who went on to win a Rondo)
#113 - Caroline Munro, Veronica Carlson, Martine Beswicke

#115 - Joshua Kennedy
#116 - Bruce Campbell (Jan 2020)

 Horror Hootenanny #16

 And I made other personal appearances, live hostings and podcast guest appearances.

 Next year promises to be another good one, and I have some big plans for the following months. But more on that later! Thank you all for your continued support, I appreciate each and every one of you groovy monster kids from the bottom of my gangrenous heart.
