Horror stories scare us to the point we can’t sleep. Whether they are short stories, novels, movies or other mediums, they cause us to look over our shoulder when we are alone and take a deep breath when we are about to descend to a basement.
Billy Hanson, who adapted and directed an acclaimed adaption of Stephen King’s Survivor Type that was lauded as “one of the most jaw dropping adaptions of (King’s) ever made…” by John Skipp of Fangoria Magazine, will discuss horror stories and how they adapt from one medium to another.
He will also discuss his book “Spider Season”, that debuted in 2018 and was a gold medal winner in Fiction Anthology, Reader's Favorite Book Award winner in 2019 and one of Book Authority's "Best New Horror Books to read in 2019”, as well as his latest release, “Dolly”. Both publications are haunting and mesmerizing, sure to leave you wide-eyed and gasping for breath.
He is a filmmaker, author and comic book writer with projects ranging from music videos and graphic novels to web series and films. His latest release is Dolly, a horror story published on Halloween 2020. He also has written for the horror anthology comic, “Grimm Tales or Terror“, and his first feature film, “Bone Cold”, is currently in post-production, aiming for a 2021 release.
Born and raised in Maine, he now lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two sons.
