Surprise, surprise guess who is coming to Grossfest! He could not make it last year because of unforeseen circumstances. These things happen with conventions ‘subject to change’ but we had to make room for this cool independent person. He is a known figure among Indy gorehounds so let’s just get to it; I introduce you to writer/director Brian Paulin! Mr. Paulin might be best known for such independent hit films “Bone Sickness”, “Fetus”, “Mummy Raider”, and “Blood Pigs” but I remember this good man when I first seen the 2000’s “At Dawn They Sleep”. Brian’s films punch you in the face with some amazing and possibly disturbing to some folks gore effects… Brian is the founder of Morbid Vision Films and we are proud to have him at our show. For more info on Brian check out: www.morbidvisionfilms.com .
He is one of the most multi-talented independent filmmakers you could ever meet. He has his own website that streams and available for purchase his films and music called, “Henflix”. He has acted in over 30 films and has directed two dozen films. You name it; he has done it in front of the camera and behind it and does not stick to one genre. Depression: The Movie, Babysitter Massacre, Calamity Jane’s Revenge are a few of his notable films. I could write pages on how cool this once a generation talent is but how about you come on down to Grossfest this July 20th and meet him yourself. I introduce you to the one and only Henrique Couto!

For our next guest announcement is a pair like no other making independent horror films. They are raw, brutally honest, and have made some films that are absolutely disgusting and beautiful at the same time. The point is their films grab you by the naughty parts and make you pay attention! They may be the most talented duo out there in filmmaking land and have a constantly growing audience. A lot of people know them as TOE TAG or as I would like to introduce them to the few that haven’t had the pleasure of meeting these talented young people I give you… Fred Vogel and Shelby Lynn Vogel!
For our next guest announcement, Glenn Berggoetz is the filmmaker behind twelve feature films, including the horror/thriller “Paralyzed with Fear” that stars Kane Hodder from the “Friday the 13th” films and “The Ghosts of Johnson Woods” that stars Joe Bob Briggs from “Monstervision.” Glenn makes most of his films on micro-budgets, which led to his being asked to write the book “The Independent Filmmaker’s Guide: Make Your Feature Film for $2,000,” which is available from the Hal Leonard Company. Glenn has also contributed numerous short horror films to the British “60 Seconds to Die” horror film anthologies. Next on his filmmaking agenda is the experimental horror film “Experiments in Evil” that he plans to shoot in the spring of 2019. With great excitement we introduce you to the talented Glenn Berggoetz!
