Sickening Thud Superstars


Mark Mackner AKA "The Ringleader"

Director, Writer, Cinematographer, Actor, Editor

"All my life, I’ve been watching monster movies, dreaming of the day when I could offer my own entry into this, my most beloved genre. I worked for years in the theater, writing and directing one brilliant play after another, but still. There was a void. I’m not a theater person. Believe me. I tried cracking into that scene for almost a decade. It’s pretty clear that they don’t want me. Whatever. Fuck ‘em. I’m a movie guy! Always have been, always will be. It’s true; I was immediately embraced by the film community. Because, while my films are cheap and somewhat lacking in “production values”, they’re clever and creative, and boast AMAZING scripts and a team of crew and actors who are so dedicated, so passionate, and so clearly having a blast making films, that we’re just impossible to resist."

Wedge Wegman AKA "The Wildcard"

Actor, Makeup, Script Supervisor, Producer, Promotions

In 1986, a group of white supremacists-slash-MIT students, led by rogue MIT professor Kaiser Von Holocaust, seek a super weapon called The Daisy Chain, a time machine that these twisted Fascists hope to use to bring about the dreaded “Merge-ening”, in which Hitler’s Third Reich is brought forward in time and becomes a part of our reality.

Only one disbanded gang of uncertain, extremely flawed and deeply troubled heroes can stop them. They are The Crimson Zero! Viva la justice!
