We’re big fans of Nick Smith at the City Paper. Not only is he our contributing arts editor — not to mention one of our best writers — but he has a devilish sensibility that we love. He’s written a novel about zombies (Undead on Arrival) and directed an indie action flick (Cold Soldiers, premiering this week at the Charleston Film Festival), but he also came up with one of the most singularly brilliant horror movie kills ever: Death by ceiling fan. This fact alone has us eagerly awaiting the release of the Smith-penned, Gus Smythe-directed Eight Graves. It could be a bloody good time.
