Sinema: The Movie - Coming Soon!!
"Rod Glenn was brought up in the north east of England and lives in Newcastle upon Tyne with wife, Vanessa. His writing is of a dark nature with darkly humorous undertones. He also an actor, some roles include World War Z, Broken England, The Bad Samaritan Must Die, Run, Vera, Inspector George Gently, The Monuments Men, Fury, Macbeth, Bill, The Fairy Flag, Dolls and Ripper Street." Welcome to Hayden! SINEMA is coming soon. The Indiegogo can be found, HERE. Rod's novels can be found, HERE.

What can you tell us about SINEMA?
Sinema is a feature film based on my best-selling novel, Sinema: The Northumberland Massacre.  It is one man's experiment to see whether a normal well-adjusted person can commit mass murder and then return to their normal life. It centers around the anti-hero and film fanatic, Han Whitman.

What can you tell us about the cast?
We are still putting together the cast and crew, but so far we have cast Eileen Daly (Razor Blade Smile and recent Big Brother contestant), Nicholas Vince (Hellraiser I & II and Nightbreed), Warren Speed (Zombie Women of Satan) and Liam Grahame Olsen (an exceptional young local actor who both Kev and I have worked with before). Other than Eileen and Nicholas we are gathering the rest of the cast and crew together from the amazing wealth of talent we have in the North East.

Who are your favorite Authors?
I have read voraciously since I was about 6 and started reading stuff that was a little too old for me from an early age – Stephen King, James Herbert, Edgar Allan Poe, H G Wells, H P Lovecraft – but I love Terry Pratchett, Ernest Hemingway, J R R Tolkien, Frank Herbert, Dean R Koontz, Christopher Brookmyre, Douglas Adams and Nick Hornby to name just a few.

When do you hope to start shooting SINEMA?
We are currently filming the teaser trailer and hope to begin principal photography around November/December this year.

What are your favorite Horror Movies and Directors?
I’m a huge John Carpenter fan, but in particular The Thing and Halloween.  I also love the George A Romeo films (especially the earlier ones), Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers, John Landis’ American Werewolf in London, Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, David Cronenberg’s The Fly and Frank Darabont’s The Mist again to name just a few!
