From The Press Release

Release Date: January 22, 2021
When an amateur documentarian sets out to make a film about a man who hasn’t left his mother’s basement in six months, he discovers the recluse is in fact a vile doomsday hatemonger. The tables are turned when the maniac snaps, imprisons him, and takes control of the cameras to start a vitriolic, venomous podcast—making enemies far and wide and promising violent retribution.

This challenging, polarizing, partially crowdfunded $20,000 micro-budget feature film written & directed by The Thornton Brothers is their debut feature (shot almost exclusively on iPhones in their own basement with a cast of two and crew of zero). CACTUS JACK may be a found footage horror film treatise on viral hate and the complicity of social media, but it is also a labor love that took almost four years to make—and in doing so has just grown more and more relevant and terrifying given the current state of the country and world in terms of racial injustice, tribalism, xenophobia, misogyny, political partisanship, and the violence associated with “othering” and domestic terrorist hate movements.

I am a devoted husband and father. I have been a voracious horror fan since the early age of 5 and metal fan since I was 14. I watch all horror films but my great loves are classic horror films: Universal Monsters, Werewolves, Hammer Horror and an all-around affinity for things that go bump in the night! I'm also a huge fan of extreme metal music.
