It seems online buzz for The Oatmeal Man is making its way across the Internet—by the spoonful, no less. Fangoria, Dread Central, and Quiet Earth are just a few of the horror sites linking to the movie’s shiny new trailer. My question: Who’s been pimping our shit, and can I buy him / her / it a drink?
My favorite bit of oatmeal commentary so far (from the Horror-Movies.ca forum):
Looks terrible, but in a good way.
It also appears Sal Perales and myself have done interviews for Obscure Horror. I tried to be interesting with my answers. Sal’s were totally ninja. Thanks, Rich, for letting us toot our horns. Update: It also-also appears both Sean and Krisondra were interviewed by Obscure Horror way before Sal and I ever were. Fail, Jesse, for not checking your facts first!
Okay, so here’s my idea for the ultimate The Oatmeal Man promotional gimmick: a collector’s edition of the DVD sealed in wax paper packaging, like the old baseball card decks from the 1980s. There would even be a stick of powdered chewing gum nestled between the wrapper and the DVD case. Sean, are you listening?
