STUMPY SAM slashes through Sundance!

Another prize for THE LEGEND OF BEAVER DAM, this time an honourable mention at the Sundance Film Festival!

Once upon a time, Rick's old friends Jerome Sable and Eli Batalion wrote a horror-musical and asked him to play Stumpy Sam, the evil swamp monster who scares campers and kills Sean Cullen. Rick said yes. Lots of latex and screaming ensued...
