Scared to Death

Please choose a format above.

If you’ve been looking for a feature-length film that almost starred Rick Springfield, this is your lucky day!

A bio-engineered monster is crawling the sewers of Los Angeles, feeding on human spinal fluid. Hot-headed novelist and former police detective, Ted Lonergan is the only man who can stop the monster. Despite his girlfriend’s life being at stake and the animosity of his former boss, Lonergan is as useful as if he’d never been brought in on the case!

Get Scared to Death with Bridget and Mary Jo!

Contributing writers: Karyn Ostrem and Zachary Shatzer
