37 (20-1-23)

Hola cool cats and/or kittens.

On this, the last day of my 37th year, I’m going to be doing some admin-y work on the site. I’ve got some cool things planned, long overdue things, to try and make sure that this site gets the kick up it’s ass that it needs.

In 2023 I have the following plans. Not all will happen, but they’re what I’m intending to do.

1. Subscribed content: I have this idea of charging a (very reasonable) yearly fee that gives people access to all the films, scripts, shorts etc that I’ve done. As I plan to release one film a year, it will cover the cost of that but include the backlog. I have to look at the feasibility, but this seems like the way to go.

2. A full on shop: this is a tad more complicated as the cost of doing that raises my website hosting fees, so it’s likely this wouldn’t be before I renew in September, but I think it could really help with the aesthetics.

3. Update: in a general sense, as an ongoing thing, just have more content. The backstory is stage one, there’ll be a revised page of all the backstory along with an audio reading of it, by yours truly.

4. More extras: I am working on more extra footage, interviews etc. It’s likely this’ll be embeds from the YouTube channel, giving people a behind the scenes look at the films and more context for them.

There are more ideas, but they are reliant on the website making money. I’ll keep you posted.

Plane review (18-1-23)

Hola cool cats and/or kittens.

Using my Odeon membership, I got to see Plane early. It’s the new Gerard Butler film, and let me tell you it’s surely a Gerard Butler film. The runtime is 1.47hrs, it moves lightning quick, you get character development on the run and they cut to the case very quickly regarding plot beats.

So naturally…

I really enjoyed it. It’s loud, dumb, and yet kinetically violent at points. We’re dealing with simple material here, simple material executed well. If you like his brand of B-Movies, go see it.

And while you’re here, check out the link below on how to purchase my films online.


Where Can I Watch The Films? (17-1-23)

Hola cool cats and/or kittens.

The site is due for a redesign soon. I feel like it isn’t selling itself as well as it should be, so I’m going to be tinkering with a few things to make it a cooler experience.

But for now…

I thought I’d do a blog which put across the different places and mediums that you can catch the films on, to make it easier for people to find the experience that works for them.

Barbatachtian Films Store


My preferred option for money reasons.

New Village Video


You can rent the film on New Village Video. They also have a fine selection of other films.

Indie Nation Nework


Signing up to Indie Nation Network gives you access to all of my films and shorts, plus many others. And you can support indie filmmakers, as they pay generous royalties for each view.





The films are available to buy on Projektor.



The site is in beta mode currently, but if you create an account the films are all on there.


Updates (10-1-23)

Hey there cool cats and/or kittens.

It’s ten days into 2023, and it’s either the best of times or worst of times depending on where you fall in the worldwide spectrum of stuff/thangs. I’m in the centre it seems, so mainly I’m just keeping my head down and trying to improve my lot in life rather than anything else. I do this using the logic that if I make more stuff, someone somewhere will watch it at some point and it’ll improve their day.

Anyway, in a move away from complex stuff I am not qualified to speak about…

Today is the last day of the sale. You can find the films on the store page: 

I have finished my first script of 2023. Oh My God It’s Christmas is drafted and it is… unfilmable. I mean maybe I’m wrong there, but between the budget and the tone and the offensive jokes and the levels of visceral (blood, vomit etc) that’d be fully depicted on screen, it’s probably not going to be made without a rewrite. But hey, if anyone wants to buy it and pay me lots of money to make it into a PG flick, I’m game.

I’m also working on a new version of Barbatachtian. I love the three I’ve made, but I really want to get the films on more platforms and reverse-engineering the originals to do that is proving tricky. So a new film condensing the events into one film that’s in 4K with subtitles seems the smart approach.

Hold this space.

New Years Sale (3-1-23)

Hey there cool cats and/or kittens.

Welcome to the 2023 sale, where the films are all available for heavily reduced prices from today (3rd January) until next Tuesday (10th January.) It’s an opportunity and a half, and one every horror fan should take advantage of.

Catch them on the store:


In other news, I’m 40 pages into the next script. Which I started on January 1st. Weird. But also cool. I’m trying to write more this year, as selling a screenplay or two is the best way to continually push this filmmaking thing and get bigger budgets, more actors, sets etc.

I’m also trying to get the films on more platforms. That’s a tad harder to achieve, but I’m plugging away anyway.

Writing Update (2-1-23)

25 pages in two days.


Parts of page 19 are below!

Tea is epic!

2023 (1-1-23)

Hey there cool cats and/or kittens.

The New Year has started, and this year is going to be the year of a LOT of Barbatachtian Films content, Scripts, books, films, shorts, podcasts if I find time. And a whole new look for the website, more of which will come soon.

I am currently writing a Christmas film to release next Winter. The working title is Oh My God, It’s Christmas and I currently have eleven pages written. As usual I have no idea how I’ll actually make it, but I’ll figure out something. It’s got an irreverent tone so far, and in theory is a horror film.

I will also release Barbatachtian: 1985. That is in the usual state of flux, and will be saved in editing again. Some would say the last one wasn’t, yet I’d say… hah.

I will also be working on some more shorts. People like shorts.

Outside of that on a personal level, I plan to travel more. Partly for location shooting in different places, partly just to see the world again.

At any rate, remember… life is beautiful, and so are you.
