DN313: Ghost Burger – Lee Hardcastle

Today we’re joined by the ridiculously prolific filmmaker Lee Hardcastle who in his own understated but ever so true words, ‘makes claymations that are not for children’s eyes‘, the latest of which is Ghost Burger, an excellent sequel to his T is for Toilet segment from the ABCs of Death.

Chainsaw Babe

Rules dictate if you’ve put out two parts of a splatter-fest horror film, a trilogy is inevitable. Goremation master Lee Hardcastle adds the sexy (and the 3d) to his Chainsaw Maid mythology with the third instalment, Chainsaw Babe.

Zombies | Chainsaw Maid 2

Super lo-fi with a charm that’s hard to resist, Lee Hardcastle has taken a break from his 60 second replays in clay to bring us horrific tales of Zombies and a Chainsaw Maid. And here’s the making of Chainsaw Maid 2

Replay in Clay
