Sickening Pictures and Dexahlia Productions have released Love Is Dead for free online viewing. The emotional horror short stars adult film actors Aaron "Small Hands" Thompson and Joanna Angel, alongside genre favorite Ruben Pla (Insidious, Big Ass Spider).
Love Is Dead is written and directed by Jerry Smith, a horror film journalist best known for his contributions to Fangoria, Blumhouse, and Icons of Fright. While his day job finds him exploring fictional horror, Smith's dark drama deals with the real horror we can force each other to endure. The filmmaker drew inspiration from his own life to tap into the raw emotion.
