Filmmaker’s DIY horror film out on DVD

Madison filmmaker Cory J. Udler celebrates fellow DIY horror filmmakers in his documentary, “I Made My Own Damn Movie (and lived to tell about it).”

After making the 2009 feature, “Incest Death Squad,” Udler says, “I wasn’t willing to sit on it forever waiting for a distribution deal that may or may ever happen, so I went at it myself.”

Troma Films releases on DVD in March as part of its “Produce Your Own Damn Movie” box set.

“Once everything was in place, I started to hit horror conventions, set up screenings, and the one thing that so many people asked me was ?how did you do it?’

“There are so many people who want to make their own damn movie, but just really have no reference point as to where they should start.”
