Phil wants you to check out B.O.M. Production's horror webseries AMERICAN ZOMBIES-August 15, 2012

Now I am a big time supporter of anything that's local, especially if it has to do with movies! There is so much film activity in my community that one has to wonder just how much is going on here? Well let me give you some examples: there's the great silent film shows at the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, the indie film co-op group Scary Cow Productions, horror hostess Miss Misery and her Movie Massacre show. And then there's the new kids on the block: Box O' Markers (B.O.M.) Productions, who with their new zombie webseries AMERICAN ZOMBIES are putting their stamp on a classic horror sub-genre while simultaneously helping to put the Bay Area on the map for horror filmmaking.

According to their Facebook page, B.O.M. are a, "group of bay area filmmakers collaborating on a genre web series. We plan to explore a new genre every season. We collaborated and sought out to create a genre web series where they can tap into a new genre every season." For this season, they have a chosen a horror series!

So far this season, their series AMERICAN ZOMBIES has been nothing short of excellent. Written and directed by Roun Tamaki, the series has thus far contained some great acting, tight directing and editing, fantastic cinematography, and gratuitous amounts of blood, gore, and zombies to satisfy any horrorhound's bloodlust! B.O.M. plans on releasing a new episode every two weeks. Three episodes have been released so far on their Youtube channel, and they have just wrapped the fifth and final episode this past week.

AMERICAN ZOMBIES is a perfect example of grassroots, local independent filmmaking at its finest! For this group of filmmakers who, "met in a film class at Ohlone College in Fremont, CA.," the sky's the limit for them. Whatever genre they tackle next, it will be exciting to see and I for one cannot wait to see what they do next season! Highly recommended!!

AMERICAN ZOMBIES can be viewed on the B.O.M. Youtube channel at You can also check their official Facebook page at and make sure you "like" them while you're there! Now go out there and SUPPORT LOCAL FILMMAKING!!

Thanks for reading, and enjoy the show!
