The Crow: Purgatory series has made it's rounds in festivals and has also crossed over into spinoffs and cross overs to keep the Purgatory series thriving. I am and always will be grateful for the chance to share the story to all of you. Since meeting James O'Barr and Neil Gaimen, the adenelin remains in my veins to keep making projects at the speed of thought. I invite you to visit my latest work which goes into the descendents of the character, Priest in my latest work - in association with Redcape Cinema called - THE CHRONICLES OF THE ORDER: BLOODLINE (Now available on DVD)

You heard it first! Torrid Productions will host an exclusive screening during the weekend of the

The screening will also debut the pilot webisode of Redcape Cinema's EVE: Beauty and the Blade. Both directors - Ron Santiano, Desciple, cast and crew from both projects will be at hand to celebrate independent comicbook inspired action films.
PURGATORY to go Crowless? Yes, The purpose for the hype at Comic-con is to attract investors to have Purgatory be told in it's original form - taking flight without The Crow affiliation. This will allow us to produce the future of this franchise with an actual budget
