“Hallowed be thy name, oh Lord, and shotgun do your stuff,” wrote Joe R. Lansdale in one of his more than 50 novels, 500 short stories, and countless comic books and screenplays. While a prolific storyteller, Lansdale is no ordinary writer. The Texas native has inspired a generation of suspense writers including Joe Hill, David J. Schow and Christopher Golden who appear in the documentary along with actors Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead, The Last Kids On Earth), James Purefoy (Hap and Leonard, Altered Carbon) and Amber Benson (Buffy The Vampire Slayer). Directors Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-Tep) and Mick Garris (Masters Of Horror, The Stand) pile on the praises for this 10-time Bram Stoker Award-winning “Champion Mojo Storyteller” from the piney woods of Nacogdoches, Texas who is every bit as extraordinary as any one of his artistic endeavors.
