Short Film: "From Darkness" by @Khingz

We arrived in California, rallied the troops, built the sets,  and soon after we were ready for our first camera day. Michael  Biehn who played Kyle Reese in the original Terminator movie came onboard to play Agent Doug Albright.  Former WWE Superstar  Al Snow dropped by to put me in a headlock and one of the producers from the hit television series "Eureka" came through to see what us crazy Canucks were up to. So if you've got a minute or ten,  take a moment and watch "From Darkness" directed by Andrew C. Erin.
