Barbatachtian 6: The Evil Wood (10-5-23)

I’m a glutton for punishment.

Year end review (31-12-22)

Hey there cool cats and/or kittens.

2022 is almost at an end, so it seems fitting for me to do wrap up of sorts for a year which has certainly been a year, both for good and for bad.

Firstly, I know that this website needs updating. It’s in the works.

Secondly, it’s been a proper grand year royalty wise. Thanks for Indie Nation Network and New Village Video, the films are still making change. Not anything I can live on, but it’s still awesome that people watch and pay for this dreck.

Thirdly, I came close to selling a script this year. I will sell one next year. That is my resolution. I know some people will scoff, but I willed myself to make a bunch of films and I did that so I’m going to sell a script damnit.

Fourthly, there’ll be a new book on Amazon at some point. It’ll be a book about my experiences making these films. I’ll keep y’all posted.

Finally, next year will see lots of new projects. There’ll be Barbatachtian: 1985, there’ll be a Christmas film (those make good bank at Christmas time), and I’ll be aiming to make a bigger film. Not sure which one yet, but I’ll be pushing for it.

For now, enjoy the New Year

See y’all on the other side.

Oh, and buy some shit on the store.

Barbatachtian (Original) available on this very site for free (24-09-21)

Good moooooooooooooooooooooorning Vietnam.

(Sorry, always wanted to do that.)

I am, of course, Ian Austin, and I am either a visual anarchist or a government stooge depending on the proclivities of the situation. I am here today to let you all know that my debut film, 2020’s most horizontally horrifying horror film, is now available free on this very website, indefinitely, indubitably, and in perpetuity, now and for… well, a while.

Now it is important to add this is not the streaming version available on (hey Antoine M. Dillard, how you doing?), rather this is the very first version of the film which launched last year and is, warts and all, the film that I wanted to make, made, and then sat around wondering if it was really all that and a bag of chips.

Well, I think it is.

And since it’s the time to promote le sequel (debuts 22.10.21, exclusively on, why not go back in time then forward in time to the present. Or something. I don’t know.

Catch the film below. It’s an advised R-rating (15 in the UK), and while this isn’t an official rating it is not recommended for anyone below that age and I do not endorse it being watched by anyone under that age, pending parents discretion.
