Hello Scotchworthy fans! I apologize this website isn't much to look at, but with all the work we've been putting into finishing up our three features, this has taken a backseat for the time being. We are incredibly excited to announce that it looks like all of our movies will be released this year so you can finally see High on the Hog, The Rake, and Skeletons in the Closet! As I get more info, I will be sure to update you all, but thanks for the continued support of everything Scotchworthy!

We've had Scotchworthy's website down to rework some stuff and are finally back. We've added the World of Death blu-rays to the store and will continue updating the website with our newest projects including updates on High on the Hog, The Rake, and Skeletons in the Closet!
Stay tuned and welcome back!
Scotchworthy Productions is proud to announce that our short horror film web series, World of Death will be streaming for free via Bloody-Disgusting.com on their youtube channel. Bloody-Disgusting.com is the world's largest horror website and we are WOD couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of the BD family!
A couple weeks ago I was forwarded a link to check out Tom Holland's interview with Sid Haig on thterrortime.com. Tom spent a good amount of time discussing Sid's career with him and at one point, Sid brought up High on the Hog and had some tremendous things to say about it. You can check out the article HERE.
High on the Hog is close to completion folks! I know you're eager to see the movie and I promise, it is WORTH THE WAIT!
Scotchworthy's first feature length horror movie, It's My Party and I'll Die If I Want To is now available on V/H/S in our PRODUCTS section.
Tape includes a special intro from director Tony Wash as well as a number of new and old Scotchworthy trailers. Also comes with a special limited edition It's My Party sticker.
Only 150 of these tapes were made and we only have 50 left so order them before they are sold out!
With Halloween quickly approaching, people might be wondering what has been going on with our collection, World of Death? We have been working diligently on getting all of the correct deliverables from the filmmakers, which has taken some time due to translation and technical issues, but I am happy to say that we officially have over 200 films in the collection and are currently represented by 21 countries from around the world! The trailer is visually cut and we are now waiting on titles to be completed and music to be written. Our online distribution also looks to be pretty amazing, but we can't let the cat out of the bag just yet. You will have to wait a few more weeks until everything gets solidified. Trust me when I say, it will be worth the wait everyone!
Once again I have neglected to update our site in six months and I apologize. Thankfully there is a lot to talk about! 2015 has been a crazy year for us so far. We have spent majority of our time working on our newest feature length horror film, which has turned out great. Shot in April over a period of 19 days, Tony Wash's third feature is a psychological thriller sandwiched in a creature film. Pulling atmospheric influences from horror greats like The Shining and Alien, Wash's film promises to deliver classic suspense mixed with practical special FX and beautifully crafted characters. Currently in post production, we hope to have the film ready for audiences early next year. Unfortunately, no more details can be provided publicly, but we promise this one is worth the wait!
Scotchworthy's compilation World of Death is set for an October release. With over 200 films included representing more than 20 countries, World of Death provides over 15 hours of gruesome horror entertainment. "We intend to release the trailer at the end of August to prep for the compilation's release around Halloween." says producer Jim Petersen. World of Death will be available for purchase as DVD and Blu-Ray box sets that each of the filmmakers will sell themselves. "We anticipate the exposure of WOD to be pretty substantial based on the number of people involved in the 200 plus productions."
Scotchworthy is also working on their short film compilation Skeletons in the Closet, which includes all of Scotchworthy's short films. There will be about a dozen short films included on this DVD ranging from oldies like Things That Go Bump in the Night and Hopscotch to some of our newest films. The DVD will also include three short films that no one has seen yet; Wendigo (shot in 2006), Paid Vacation (2009), and Meisner (2014).
For the first and only time, our first feature It's My Party and I'll Die If I Want To is available for purchase on VHS. Take a trip back to the 80s by watching this old school horror film in a traditional format. Available through Vultra Video at their website for $30. Comes with some cool stuff and is limited to a run of 100 so pick up your copy before they sell out!

A while back we announced that Scotchworthy's special FX supervisor Jason Kain has been collaborating with Shawn Crahan from the metal band Slipknot on some different projects. Last year for Halloween, Jason created a special limited edition clown mask that was sold on Crahan's website. With the new album due out, Crahan contacted Jason and asked him to create a new mask. Jason happily obliged and the result can be seen in Slipknot's newest video The Devil In I.
Check out the video for The Devil In I HERE.

This past weekend, some of the Scotchworthy crew drove out to Estes Park, CO to spend the weekend at the beautifully haunted Stanley Hotel where Tony Wash's short film, The Muck screened during the 2nd annual Stanley Film Festival. With other prestigious guests attending the fest such as Elijah Wood, AJ Bowen, Ti West, Travis Stevens, Adrian Garcia Bogliano, and more it was certainly time well spent networking and checking out some of the biggest horror films coming out this year. The Muck opened for Dennis Widmyer & Kevin Kolsch's amazingly directed Starry Eyes, which also screened at SXSW earlier this year.
Check out some of the photos from this incredible weekend.
Brandon Duncan really did an amazing job with this one folks! Premiered at the SXSW film festival a few weeks ago.

It came and went so quickly. After all the prep work over the past few weeks, we finally headed out to Indy with cars full of merchandise, artwork, and enthusiastic crew. We kicked things off by setting up our new booth display and it turned out great. Kristina and Christy walked the floor, meeting with new fans and promoting Scotchworthy. Jason Kain boasted his talents with his one-of-a-kind "Norris" head sculpture from "John Carpenter's The Thing." Rhiann Lynn earned herself a few new fans as well and proved to be quite the Scotchworthy Girl, selling tons of Party and A Chance in Hell DVDS. And Tony Wash talked it up with tons of great new fans as well as a handful of repeat buyers! We also got to see our good friend and crew member John Pata and mingled with some great new friends/filmmakers/actors. We released our newest merchandise; the official High on the Hog Sid Haig t-shirts and our "Charlie" head keychains. Check out the pics below!

It's been a crazy year and a half since the founding members of Gang 6 Films sat down and discussed the set up for the anthology horror film, Chop Shop, but we pushed through and wrapped! The movies look absolutely amazing, and we've had a tremendous time working with old friends as well as bringing new people into the Scotchworthy family. As we move into post production, I hope our fans are getting excited. We hope to have the film completed by late fall. For now, check out some great pics from behind the scenes.
It's been a busy year so far for Scotchworthy Productions. We've just picture locked High on the Hog and are looking to have the movie completed by August. Chop Shop is also in its final stages of production as we prepare to shoot the final short of the anthology in July. Below are some pics from the spring thus far. Between us scouting locations, set dressing, shooting, and hanging out, we're always having a good time.
A handful of us spent Monday getting some final shots taken care of for HotH. I'm happy to say they turned out great and I'm excited to see our editor, Mike Heffler get them added to the movie. I know everyone is anxious to check out the footage and the trailer. I know it's in the final stages of completion and will be online shortly! Sorry for the wait guys!!
Thanks for the continued support.
