Jan. 17th 2012: FANGORIA
2012 is off to an amazing start. Later this week, the new issue of Fangoria magazine comes out and after reading Fango for nearly 20 years, I am actually written up in it. The new film SICK is covered in the Monster Invasion. Meanwhile Friday the 13th saw an amazing screening of both The Devil Walks Among You and Black Eve
It was a packed screening despite the horrible Canadian weather on Jan. 13th 2012
Jan. 3d 2012: HAPPY NEW YEAR
The best way to kick off 2012 is a screening of my feature Black Eve and my short The Devil Walks Among You, throgh FANGORIA, in downtown Toronto. And best of all it’s on Friday The 13th.
Also, this month we are going to be in print in the #310 issue of Fangoria!!!!
Dec. 9th 2011: Day Of The Deb!
Many years ago, back when I was a teenager, I watched any horror film I could get my hands on. I learned early on who Debbie Rochon was. There are many iconic names in horror, with Vincent Price probably being the biggest. Vincent Price is horror royalty. And up there with him is names like Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff and of course THE scream queen, Debbie Rochon.
And this past week, Debbie flew in to Toronto (for the first time ever) so she could be in my latest film. It was an honor and a blessing to be able to meet her, have dinner with her and discuss movies with her. And of course make a movie together. She is absolutely brilliant and such a joy to work with.

Nov. 24th 2011: BACK FROM THE DEAD!!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, after a couple weeks of shooting, my newest feature is in the can. It was an amazing experience and with the limited time I have as I enter into post production, I am trying to find time to update this site.
SICK: Staring: Christina Aceto, Richard Roy Sutton, Robert Nolan, Jennifer Polansky and Scream Queen Debbie Rochon. Dir/Wri: Ryan M. Andrews DoP/Pro: Michael Jari Davidson Exec Pro: Cengiz H. Fehmi Pro/Co-wri: Chris Cull
And not to mention, post vfx are done by Derek Grime (Fight Club, Bride Of Chucky) And Fight Choreography is done by Tommy Chang (Xmen) All this equals one thing… One Helluva great horror film. It has been my honor working with all of these people and making it happen.

June 8th 2011: the sounds of BLACK EVE.
The finish line is in sight for this indie horror film made, with passion, in only six days in a closed down department store just outside of Toronto, Ontario. Just like Ryan’s 2nd feature, the award winning, A NEW DESIGN, he wanted to focus plenty on the music. As he stated recently: “Music plays a huge factor in when I write, and so when sitting in post, to me music is another character with a voice, forwarding the scenes.”
However this time around the majority of the music comes from the ongoing Halloween party in the film.
Ryan made sure to round up the best fitting music for the film. Taking from multiple genres all over Canada and the USA.
- Peter Jackson (ft. Care Failure of Die Mannequin)
-A Fallen Mind
Also, the eerie Black Eve theme music was created for the film by Rick Jackett (Finger 11/Blackie Jackett Jr.)
May 22nd 2011: Spread The SICKness.
The new Zombie film SICK, going to camera in October, now has it’s leads. From day one Ryan had Veronika London in mind for one of the roles, having worked with her before on slasher film BLACK EVE. The creative team held multiple days of auditions for remaining three principal roles and have found an amazing cast.
Veronika London ( http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3103457/ ) is going to be joined by:
Richard Roy Sutton – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2948351/
Robert Nolan – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0634349/
Christina Aceto - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4398974/
