I hardly have the words to describe just how amazingly cool this trailer is for director Red Clark’s short film Gray Matter, but it is by far one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while. It’s a short horror film adaptation of a story from Stephen King’s Night Shift collection and will be playing at festivals this winter.
It’s a nasty looking little flick with enough gooey practical effects to keep any fan of the genre smiling, especially those of you who are big fans of the old school variety. Even the score and title card reek of horror’s glory days of the 80’s. I’m unfamiliar with this particular story from King so I have absolutely no idea what’s going on, but I f*cking love it!

“This is really just a passion project done for pure love of the genre, King, and practical effects… I was lucky enough to get some of my horror favorites involved.”
Gray Matter stars indie actor Larry Fessenden, and was done entirely with practical effects. The poster was done by The Dude Designs’ Tom Hodge who has been dishing out some amazing art for other films like Innkeepers and Hobo with a Shotgun.
