John Skipp is a New York Times bestselling author, editor, zombie godfather, compulsive collaborator, musical pornographer, black-humored optimist and all-around Renaissance mutant. His early novels from the 1980s and 90s pioneered the graphic, subversive, high-energy form known as splatterpunk. His anthology Book of the Dead was the beginning of modern post-Romero zombie literature.

Andrew Kasch first directed the award-winning short Thirsty (2008), starring fellow filmmaker Joe Lynch, and co-created the massive Never Sleep Again (2010), a documentary about the Nightmare On Elm Street franchise. Working with frequent collaborator John Skipp, he's codirected the shorts Stay At Home Dad (2012) and Clowntown: An Honest Mis-Stake (2015), as well as "This Means War," a segment in Tales Of Halloween (2015).
