Fun weekend... It was great seeing everyone at Days of the Dead again. It sort of sucked as well... Hotels were sold out, everywhere. I guess, Hillory Clinton was in town, as well as the Dali Lama... and freaking Lady Gaga.... and 20,000 female volleyball players... I had to get a hotel room... 10 freaking miles away. Figured I would use Uber to go back and forth, but when you loose your phone... not a cool thing to happen sort of squelches that idea. Thank you to whoever it was, that found my phone and turned it in. <3
Got in yesterday and started working like a madman... Actor contracts are now out to all of the actors for AGP Song of Solomon, Screenplay is finalized and sent out to everyone. Locations are in the BAG!!! All props and costumes are finalized... FX work is already starting and once I get the contracts back, will make a press release for everyone that is involved. Shit, I have to come up with a synopsis for Song... Mmmmmm Have to come up with it and still leave the suprises we have in store for you with it. This is going to be tough. Should work on it now.
Didn't get much sleep last night but I managed to get that all done and went to bed around 12 in the afternoon. Woke up at 8:30 and back to work.
So... I'm taking it easy today and taking the day off. Debating on a haircut... Shit... I need to contact Julie Strain... Shit... I have to sign and scan the contract for AGP: Bloodshock for release in Japan. Shit, I have to write up another contract for another film for japan as well... Rotten Cotton T-Shirts for Bloodshock are being made now, I should update the indiegogo campaign for that. Damn it. Looks like my day isn't over as I think about all that I need to do. Oh shit, Sitges, film fest in New York, ah, another press release on films we picked up for release. Sheep Skin is doing very well... AH! Need to follow up with everyone that got screeners. Mecanix press release with Atroz, Francesca and Bloodshock info and specs.
Guess I am not going to take a day off. Fuck it, I can do it tomorrow? Can I? Naw... back to work for me...

Industry is changing... torrents are killing the indie industry. I'm working on a deal, to rectify it but it won't. Might slow it down a little, at least for the people I work with.
The horror industry is NOTHING like it used to be. I know, we handle a lot of films for international and domestic, not only for distro but for actual sales to other companies. Unearthed is in the thick of it, were actually selling a lot of films, to a lot of other companies. Doing 4K scans for others to get the kudos. We have been dealing with jealousy and bullshit with websites, people and others who have no clue, what we are actually doing behind the scenes.
We understand... some horror sites, just post flavor of the week, but they don't know the behind the scenes. A lot post about the horror fan favorites we all come to enjoy and love... but none of you know, Unearthed has their hands in it. NONE OF YOU DO!
Okay... here, I will spill the beans on this... Who do you think just sold Halloween, one thru fucking three to Japan?
Unearthed did. Let that little tidbit, wallow around in your brain for a little bit. I can name drop so many other films, that every site and every horror fan, would fucking respect Unearthed in ways, you could never guess. Shit, the deal we are working on, right now would make all of you, drool with anticipation. Will we release these, three measly movies? Nope... easier to sell them to a company or two that the mainstream horror sites, respect and post about everything they do.
Unearthed Classics is about to be announced. Shit, we handle such big films, we don't release... I would LOVE TO but it's easier to sell them to other companies.
We have sites, that don't bother to announce our press releases, people who think, were just an indie extreme gore label. We are, but we're so much more than that. Shit is going to be changing, news and word is going to get out for all the films we handle and sell.
We are, the horror genre's dirty little secret but in this day and age, with piracy rampant, torrents killing the indie film scene and not getting the respect we deserve for staying in business for over 14 years and watching so many other companies, getting the kudos for films we sold them, making their releases happen... yeah...
Hopefully, the actual horror industry realizes were not only a driving force in the horror industry, but a major factor in most of the major releases in some way, shape or form.
So want to spill the beans... but next time, we're in the Warner Bros vaults... I'll think back, to this post and say to myself, "Horror fans would shit their pants, if they know what we are doing."
I'm busy... shouldn't have gone on a tirade... but shit is happening to where I have to change things up again. Every-time, I feel were solid, shit happens. Just got to change and morph into something different... just tired of shifting into a new business model that has to change every year.
It's the business aspect of this industry. We will change, we will morph, and continue to kick ass...
My rant, might even delete it... so much in the works, might not even tell you what we do to make things happen. I have contracts to write... if your lucky to read this, before I get buyers remorse, enjoy.

IF you missed the Bloodshock Indiegogo Limited Editions... go to www.unearthedfilms.com and get em fast, while we still have some left over. Lower runs then Bouquet... so will sell out of em faster. Nov 9th is the release date for AGP: Bloodshock for mainstream retailers.
GAH!!!! Going thru all of the left over props and perks for both Bloodshock and Bouquet. Going to offer what's left on a special FB page with pics and such.
Going out of my mind to be honest. AGP: The Song of Solomon is in the works and we start shooting on the 15th of JULY!!! Need to start scheduling all of the actors and finalize plane tickets from those in LA. DOUBLE GAHHH! Location is mine from July 6th to July 29th... it's gorgeous yet, foreboding. Will head up there on the 6th, get the keys and enjoy myself, relax before cast and crew start showing up.
This is my most ambitious project to date, lots of moving parts. Massive amounts of FX from some truly bad ass FX people. Lots of characters and dammit... lines in Latin... going for balls to the wall authenticity on this, my take on the possession genre.
Damn, need to send out a press release for all upcoming titles/specs/editions... will do it tonight.
I am excited but up to my eyeballs in work. Mike Sandlin will be handling ALL shipping for Unearthed and everything now... July is Song of Solomon month for me and cast and crew.
Debating on doing a video diary for people who join a membership to a private channel... but that would take up time, but who knows.

ALL AMERICAN GUINEA PIG: BLOODSHOCK DVD"S are in the mail!!! Everyone should have them now. If not, please contact cause something went wrong with address, you moved, we fucked up. LOL Hopefully not. We only had to give 3 refunds back to people, who just couldn't stand the wait. Not bad for over 550 orders. That's like, 1/5th of a percent. As Charlie Sheen would say, Tiger Warlock Blood!!!
Still waiting on the Bloodshock shirts from Rotten Cotton... We sold a lot less this time and Sean is kicking ass with his Zombie Comics so, hopefully, everyone is cool, and can deal a bit longer till there in everyone's hands.
Still waiting on some actor contracts to get back to me for AGP: Song of Solomon before I can announce it.
I have the synopsis for AGP: Song of Solomon.... very fucking excited. In fact, just re-read it... wow, I'm going for your eyes mother fuckers! LOL

Still catching up on emails and IM's. It's been nonstop this month... Mecanix is out and available on VOD thru all cable platforms, ATROZ will be hitting mid August with a 3 disc set and then FRANCESCA, Sept 27th with another 3 disc set... skipping October since we have some amazing stuff out and a shit load of crap will be hitting for that month all across the board. The big corps and everyone else jump on the wagon and flood the market with Halloween stuff. Why flood the market for a month when we release superior horror product a couple of months ahead of time? I never see a jump in sales due to the flood... going to let our films, speak for themselves and be available before hand... It's better for the film makers and everyone involved since sales of films, aren't a mad dash like it used to be, but just put on lists to pick up when spare money is available... which is totally understandable in this day and age.
AGP: Bloodshock hits in November... then it's followed by some other awesome films we haven't announced yet.
I think, the haze of shooting, The Song of Solomon is finally lifting. I have to get some of the pics from Jessica Cameron and Scott Gabbey that were taken on set. Jessica, "Mania and Truth or Dare" has some amazing pictures as well as Gabbey from "Ultra Violent Magazine" they have the goods to melt minds. I have some pics but was too busy, running around like a chicken without a head during the whole shoot.
I do apologize... for not being on social media like I should have. Not answering emails or IM's that so many others do and can. Running Unearthed, making the American Guinea Pig Series and doing international sales and negotiations for films... has me busy beyond belief and pushing a social media presence is actually back burner stuff when it shouldn't be. So much going on, that needs my full attention in the business realm of the industry... hard to keep up with that, much less show you my eggs and bacon for breakfast and such. (Author note) Cast and crew did get eggs and bacon for breakfast on SOS... I either didn't eat or just ate the remnants... stayed up for days at a time, Running on empty most of the time... but was energized due to what we were making.
Anyway... still catching up. Please excuse me for my dalliances
Going over footage in my spare time. Editing is happening right now and soundtrack is in the works. Not in a rush... Bloodshock isn't even out yet. Watching the dailies... flabbergasted and amazed at what I am seeing. Thank you all for allowing me to push the envelope and manage to continue to grow as a film maker and a writer. I couldn't do this without you.
Death and Dismemberment,
Stephen Biro

Still catching up with work... but my head is finally back to normal. This shoot was intense. I'm going over the footage for Song of Solomon and I am at a loss for words.
Everything was nailed, everyone kicked ass and now the grueling task of editing, scoring and pick ups is on the menu.
Can't wait to drop the stills on this baby... argh... and cut the trailer for this but that will be awhile.
Wonderful thing is, while waiting for this monster... we will have Atroz, Francesca and the retail release of AGP: Bloodshock hitting soon... Did I mention all of these will be 3 disc sets? Blu/dvd/cd combos?
More announcements coming soon... Unearthed Classics taking a bit longer since 4k scans and restoration takes a bit but will announce soon enough.
Releases of AGP: Bloodshock for Germany and Japan will be announced soon. It's starting to get exciting... hope you are all ready for the ride.

My honest moment for the day... American Guinea Pig. It is my destiny. LOL I have wanted to add to the series since I first bought and handled the rights for it, back in 2002. I love the series, even though some of them, sort or meh. LOL But they were fucking hard-core... pulled no punches and went for your throat. They changed due to media exposure and became classics due to their unrepentant showcasing of extreme cinema.
I have been working on this new series, since 2002. That means, that I have been trying to get this made, for over 14 years. That is 1 7th of my life... trying to make an un-repentant gore series by horror fans, for horror fans. How many can say that? No one... lets be honest.
The film industry is ten times worse then it's ever been. But I feel, I am doing something unique and different that no one, not a single person is doing in the horror industry. This is my burden and this is who I am.
I understand, I could never accomplish, any of this without the people I am working with. I'm not going to tag you on this post. I just want you to realize... you are what made this happen. Without you... it would just be me, with my dreams and nightmares... stuck in my head.
All of you, brought amazement to the series and understood, that it would be a timeless film or showcase of your own talents that would stand the test of time.
As we grow, as we move ahead in this industry. We understand that so many films are thrown away, never repeated and quickly forgotten. They don't stand the test of time... These will... so unigue, uncomprimising and yet, not desperate to push the envelope but yet, trully, original and have something to say. They stick out, like a soar thumb.
I don't even know why I am posting this. It's probably becasue I know,,, and understand who I have been working with and realizing that I couldn't do ANYTHING without them.
I am lucky, I have the best friends in the business and they want to work with me. I'm nobody and no one. I am lucky that these people see me for who I am, I hope, that I can continue to move beyond what I am doing and continue to work and make their lives better as well as my own.
Call me stupid, the film industry is terrible, but I have found, some amazing people in this industry and I will do everything and anything to make their lives better and help them in anyway shape or form.
People may mention my name... alone, but I am not alone. I have a family, a crew, people who trust in me while, I trust in them with my heart and soul. I am alone in this universe but, I am never alone.
Why did I post this? It's because I have a best friend, going thru hard times, that he refuses my help. I can understand but fuck... I can actually help. None of my family should ever go thru shit without me helping. Your my family, your a part of me...I need to help you, otherwise, how can I say, your family?
I digress... it hurts to want to help a family member who refuses. Thank you, everyone who is a part of anyhing I am doing and realize, you now have a Creepy Uncle Biro in your corner.
Creepy Uncle Biro,
Stephen Biro
PS: I have no clue why my nickname became CREEPY Uncle Biro... LOL I never juiced the drinks, or casting couch or tried or hit on anyone on set. Figure it made people feel better about themselves, tearing me down. LOL No worries, I get worse...

Good day today. Couple of meetings, stuff in the works. Fixing up the apartment. Gonna be an interesting year to say the least.
Still trying to get used to the time difference here in LA. Traffic and people, yeah, quite a bit of that. But not bad when you know it. The time difference is what is getting me. Used to be three hours, in the future... now I'm three hours in the past.
But a lot in the works. I don't think anyone has an inkling of what's coming. Think it is awesome that way. Needs to happen that way.
For those of you, that don't understand why I moved to LA, aka Hollywood. I will tell you why.
1: I'm a ghost writer, screenwriter and I fix screenplays and don't get credit for it, but I do get paid well for it. Don't mind this aspect at all.
2: I think, I can get some of my indie filmmakers budgets for their next films.
3: I can push and promote Unearthed in ways, I could never in Florida.
4: I can help film makers, not only rescue their films from bad deals, but make sure they get paid.
5: I can meet with reps high up and low down and hopefully get what we need for everyone to move forward and up.
6: Can meet with my friends and business partners weekly and move forward to advance the Unearthed agenda, my agenda and their own. Phone calls are nice, but personally being there is priceless.
7: To meet people I have never met before. To offer, me... services to them and to hopefully, have them offer their services to me. I'm going to need a lot of people if the plans set up, actually happen.
8: Some great people in the mix, ya know, those who are out for themselves and those who know, a film is made by the whole town... and not themselves. These are the people who are amazing. When you see a talent, diamond in the rough. .. it needs polishing, but when it shines, it shines most brightest.
9: I prefer to be behind the scenes. Solomon was supposed to be the last In the AGP Series. Seven other film makers were supposed show us their moxie before I shot this. Since I knew what the film was, needed and ready... it became the third. Schedule changes and a series has to move forward, so it can continue. Hence Solomon, supposed to be the cherry on top. Lol now it's the banana in the banana split. Lol gotta figure out the cherry for you guys, luckily... I think I got it for you.
Don't mind me. Just wanted to say something since I've had some idiots and assholes, Try to rip me apart, for bothering to move to Los Angeles. Some people are afraid of change. Others think it is selling out... all I see is, I can push, promote, work with people I couldn't before. Help my friends and indie film makers to hopefully move up the ladder and get some of them work, get paid and onto the next thing.
I stayed in Florida for as long as I could. But when climbing the ladder of life and when you hit that rung, and can't move ahead... you either jump or go, sit back on your couch.
It's like your first murder. Hesitant, until the knife digs into a chest... then you realize your fucked, attempted murder... better to do it and try to clean up the mess... then the spiral into serial killer mode. 10 bodies later, your like, fuck. I need to move out of Florida.... Los Angeles sounds about right.
Lol I have no clue what I am saying. Hopefully the district attorney in Tampa doesn't read this. Where is the delete button? Is this it, It says publish?

AWESOME THREE DAYS!!! Talking mind blowing, new films for Unearthed... will be writing a screenplay and producing a very exciting film with a man I deeply respect. Master materials for one film, went over... hunting down a director that is hard to nail down for a new 4k scan of something from HP Lovecraft... Getting all the master materials for another film... to make the ultimate directors edition... fuck, might even help him sell props from the film. Helping a film maker or two, rescue their films from bad deals... Shit... what else... still working on the subs for Deodatos Lillith's Hell, Working on what could turn out to be a secret surprise no one saw coming...
Bad things... My phone is shitty and needs to be replaced. It's so fucking dry out here... I wake up with cotton mouth everyday. I need to drink more water actually. This humid loving boy from Florida is a dried out husk here. Sativa is not my bag anymore... Indica is... One hit off Sativa... fucks with my head too much. And I still need a microwave. I could have bought a microwave at the goodwill but was talking to an important person in my life... BUT... I did buy Taffy a scratching post... shits, it's in my trunk... let me get it for him. (Pause)
Got it and poured catnip on it. Anyway... I'm excited... This weekend is going to be a treatment weekend! Got one... story is fleshed out, me and the director are working together closely. Need two more... for the opportunity to made into films... Have a couple from friends... (Spread the wealth when you can) Hell, just found out the budget is bigger then originally quoted... that means I can dust off a couple of over the top screenplays I wrote during the awesome option phase of my writing career.
So! I am very excited... all across the board. I think I have a raging boner right now... (looks down.) Yep Raging boner. LOL

Not sure if you guys heard yet, but Unearthed will be releasing an Ultimate Directors Cut of Serbian Film.

No date has been mentioned, only that they will release it.

I for myself will grab the release just to see the bonus features they will offer. But, hoping this happens sooner than later as Serbian Film is a personal favorite of mine.
