Email from Texas, November 3, 2005:
"Thank you so much for your generosity and
hospitality. We had a blast. Providence was much fun, the people were all great, and the entire
experience left us feeling both lucky and honored. We had a great time watching, talking, and basically breathing movies for the entire fest, and had an equally great time meeting Ric, Josh, Marc, Adam, and the rest of the crew. The Best Director award was icing on the cake, and has been pivotal in convincing my Mom that all those years of couch-surfing and unemployment may have been worth it. Sincerely, thank you for the honor. We've been gushing about both the festival and Providence since we returned, and hope to see you all again as soon as possible. We've just started conceptualizing our next projects, including a very bloody and carnal retelling of a famous fairy tale, and we'll show you what we've done just as soon as there's something to show. We'll also stay in touch to inform you of new "Day X" developments, including the website launch and when we'll have copies of the finished dvd for you. Once again, thanks for everything, and feel free to contact me with any questions, follow-up's, hello's, you name it."

I just read the list of Horror Fest winners on the FANGORIA site - and HELLBENT was among them! You can bet "Winner of the RIIHFF Vanguard Award" will be emblazoned across the HELLBENT DVD box! Thanks so much, guys! Now I'm doubly disappointed I couldn't get to the
Festival. Maybe another year.... Hope the Festival was a great success for you. Again - I really appreciate the recognition.

Best - Paul Etherege-Ouzts
