Mojave Junction

Supernatural Western

Supernatural western movie distributed by DirecTV (ShortsTV) and Streamlette. For a number of years, I had been working toward making my first film while making lots and lots of television. After a weekend trip to Joshua Tree National Park, I came back with an idea. Roles include development, writing, directing, producing, editing, post-production finishing and marketing.

Winner of the top prize for horror at Dragon-Con and the Gold Remi for Westerns at Worldfest Houston.

I’m a big fan of Sergio Leone spaghetti westerns and supernatural fiction in the style of H.P. Lovecraft and Algernon Blackwood. When I encountered McTeague by Frank Norris in Joshua Tree, I saw an opportunity to merge the two aesthetics. Mojave Junction stars Ed Marinaro as a gold prospector locked in a macabre battle of wills, topped with a supernatural twist. Press kit at
