Meet Sue!

Lowrie Fawley is cast to play SUE CULTRY in The Family Way.

Sue is the kind of woman that Mother’s Day cards were made for. She cooks, cleans, and keeps her children well-groomed and mannerly. Always the gracious hostess, she’s prepared to put out a few extra seats at the dinner table for the poor souls that Richard brings home from time to time.

Ever the lady, she knows when to engage in conversation and when to excuse herself before things get too crass for her delicate sensibilities.

To her husband, Sue is the perfect partner to keep up appearances. He couldn’t imagine trying to manage a family without her, so he agreed to enforce the few rules she’s set down for the house. Of course, this isn’t always easy when they have house guests.

Marcus Koch joins the Family

Marcus Koch joins the crew to do some of the gruesome special effects in The Family Way. He is known for his work on feature films such as Sinners and Saints, We Are Still Here, 100 Tears, Mohawk, Krampus Unleashed, and the American Guinea Pig film series. Marcus also recently directed American Guinea Pig: Bloodshock.

Review of Coming Home

"The Family Way: Coming Home hits all the right horror notes. It’s decently crafted, well-written, and paced just right. There are a few plangent tones here and there (to maintain the musical metaphor), but it does what it’s supposed do: leave you wanting more."

"Coming Home" Reviewed by Feel The Reel

Our short prologue film "Coming Home" does exactly what it was intended to do!

"We hope that ‘Coming Home’ is just a pilot episode, or a trailer to an upcoming movie that will change everything we know about films of this kind. Yes, we truly hope so, because what we’ve seen in those fifteen minutes was absolutely astonishing."

"Coming Home" Reviewed by The Independent Critic

 The short film "Coming Home" was reviewed by Richard Propes of The Independent Critic.

"An inventive and twisty short, Coming Home has a seemingly good time building up your expectations for one storyline only to make a labyrinthian turn in another direction that may have not been expected but makes perfectly good sense. "
