Quote: "Independent micro-budget films are where all of today’s new original ideas reside. Hollywood is trying to spoon-feed its audience’s rehashed, reworked, tired old formulaic films. The next-generation Spielberg’s and Tarantino’s are already here... making exciting, original works that stretch the boundaries of imagination, for little or no money. We are the new wave of American filmmakers and we are coming fast! Our films hinge on the philosophy that our customers want entertainment first and foremost, beyond anything else. Every TwistedSpine.com Films project strives to meet that challenge... and our track record speaks for itself." Ritch

Quote: "I met the TwistedSpine Crew for the first time during the filming of the original "Deep Dark Woods" back in 2001. Halfway though our shoot on Day-1 you could see the Desire and Professionalism within each and everyone of them. Over the years I've grown to respect them, not only for their Commitment, but their ability to put so much time, effort and money into something that they aspire to be. I look forward to our meetings and any ideas or comments that that these people may have."... "These people love to make movies... and it shows."... Mike

Quote: TwistedSpine has opened doors for me to answer all of those, "Hey I wonder if I could do that" questions, that are bouncing around my head. The great thing about TwistedSpine is, if I can't figure it out, someone in our group can. It's all about the "BIG PICTURE" not about the individuals. Just ask someone in TwistedSpine. By the way the answer is YES, WE can!... TwistedKevin

Quote: "This is truly the only Production Company where everyone had fun the entire time. From make up, to set up, to acting/filming the scene(s). And Hey, they put out a good professional product to boot. They are truly a team I wanted to be on. From an actor's point of view, scenes were scheduled and shot within the time limits. From a Stuntman's point of view, the stunts they wanted were very believable and the Actors/Staff made choreographing a pleasurable experience. From a production/crew point of view, the scenes, takes and camera angles were WELL thought out in advance. I am truly proud to have become a part of "THE TEAM."...
