But tonight is going to be, one Hell of a night...
It was during the last night, inside the last Blockbuster Video in Tucson, Arizona that Emmy® winning writer/director, Wade Stai realized from this moment forward, there would be entire generations who would never know what it was like to wander the aisles of a video store on a Friday night with their friends and family only to discover some hidden gem among the titles on the shelf. FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS was created for all the kids who will grow up not knowing what a videocassette is or how video stores changed the way we experience entertainment forever. It's not a sequel. It's not a remake. It's not PG-13... It's the return of analog horror! CURRENT STATUS: *NOW IN PRODUCTION*

Director of Photography Wade StaiSecond Unit Director Wade StaiProduction Year: 2011Running Time 90 MinutesBlu Ray | DVD | HD Digital | UNRATED For a final project, five film students led by Maya (Megan Davis) document an infamous old hospital deep in Southern Arizona. They went hoping to find proof of the paranormal. Instead, they find themselves at the mercy of a savage madman.
ANIMUS was written and produced by make-up effects artist Quin Davis in 2011. Wade joined the project as Director of Photography and 2nd Unit Director. During casting, Wade recommended both lead actresses, Megan Davis (Maya) and Caitlin Singer (Angel) whom he worked with previously. Made on a shoestring budget, ANIMUS was a fun, but challenging production for all involved. The film was distributed in 2013. While uncredited, Wade shot and directed almost the entire second half of the film while Quin was busy prepping the make-up gags and creature FX. Several of Wade's scenes appear on his recent reel.
