DECAYMAG SESSIONS, EPISODE 19 OVERVIEW
Welcome to this week’s episode to DecayMag Session Episode 19, an audio broadcast for Horror aficionados who want the latest in trending updates on all facets of film, television, and video games. In this episode, we have two interview sessions with the cast and crew of Dry Blood.
On Thursday, December 13th, 2018, I had the opportunity to speak with Dry Blood Writer Clint Carney and Dry Blood Director Kelton Jones. Both Carney and Jones star opposite one another in the film. This interview is a special highlight to my music interest in Industrial, EBM and Darkwave genres. Many may be unaware that Clint Carney is a musician under the name System Syn. The week prior I had interviewed Ronan Harris, VNV Nation another pioneer in the music field.
Immediately following my interview with Carney and Jones was a conversational interview with Actor Rob Galluzzo and special effects, Makeup Artist Sioux Sinclair both of whom worked in Dry Blood. Galluzzo’s contribution to Dry Blood extends further from his role as The Clerk. He works with Dread Central Presents, Epic Pictures the distributing house behind the film. Sinclair’s work in the field of makeup effects further cements our spotlight on women in horror.

Dry Blood Actor, Director Kelton Jones

Director Kelton Jones’ love of cinema began as a child in the seventies. His mother owned a quaint flower shop that shared a wall with the singular movie theatre on the rural main street of Buffalo, Texas. Kelton would spend his afternoons watching, and re-watching, the afternoon showings as he waited for his mother to finish the day’s work.
When the rare feature film would be shot on location in a nearby town, Kelton would find a way to the set, so that he could watch from the sidelines, as the filmmakers spun their magic.
Finally, at age 16, Kelton’s first feature in front of the camera gave him the chance to ask the crew if he could join them after he finished his work as an actor. From that very first film, Kelton has permeated the boundaries between actor and filmmaker craftsman. Dry Blood is the culmination of a lifetime spent studying film, working on sets, writing scripts and acting
