    Cold Harbor

    On September 25th, 2023, we’re celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Tom Brandau’s film COLD HARBOR. The film premiered at The Senator Theatre in Baltimore on September 25, 2003. 

    This was a very personal film for Tom Brandau (1960-2021). It is Tom’s only feature film. We will present COLD HARBOR on our YouTube Channel for a limited time. It’s our hope to share this fine work of his with friends who have not seen it in sometime, and for those who are new to the film, to enjoy it. If you’d like to subscribe, you’ll be notified when the film is available: 

    Here is the trailer for COLD HARBOR: 

    We’ll also publish some stories and video about the making of COLD HARBOR in the coming months. 

     This film is incredibly important to me. It’s my first feature film as a producer. Making this film created a forever bond with Tom Brandau. Words will never express how much I miss Tom. Miss our trusting friendship. He passed away from cancer in 2021. How I wish he was here.

    THE DEATH OF POE had its world premiere at The Festival of Fantastic Films, in Manchester, England, on September 30, 2006.

    “Another noir achievement for horror’s classic maverick iconoclast Mark Redfield.” - David Colton, USA TODAY

    “The Death of Poe…is one of the finest movies yet made about Poe. Redfield’s acting is so persuasive that one can easily believe that this is what happened to the author…The film is dominated by Redfield’s performance; more than perhaps any other actor who attempted the role before him., Redfield IS Poe, both dramatically and physically. (The film) is almost decidedly grim, an exceptional tribute to Poe.” - Bruce G. Hallenbeck from the book “POE PICTURES The Film Legacy of Edgar Allan Poe” Tomahawk Press (2020)

    “A fascinating, hallucinatory journey…” - M. J. Simpson, Fangoria Magazine

    “Mark Redfield’s film is the true memorial that belongs on the gravestone of Edgar Allan Poe.” - Mondo Cult Magazine

    New Video! -Boris Karloff And The Creation Of The Screen Actor's Guild


    Posted 7/26/23

    In this video essay presented by Mark Redfield, we look at the life and career of actor Boris Karloff, his struggle and path to become a professional actor, and the rise of the American Labor Movement, and particularly the beginning of The Screen Actors Guild in 1933.

    The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) grew in membership and strength from its founding, to its merger with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA), to become the largest and strongest Hollywood union. Today, SAG-AFTRA has over 160,000 members.

    The American Labor Movement, and American’s embrace of unions to fight for their wages, protections, and working conditions is growing. But not yet at the levels of the 1930s. It is an ongoing battle.

    “Leave Her Johnny” - Performed by Mackenzie Menter - Music by Jennifer Rouse


    Posted 7/8/23

    From the Redfield Arts Audio production of Eugene O’Neill’s play “Anna Christie”, Mackenzie Menter sings “Leave Her Johnny”.

    The music and arrangement is by Jennifer Rouse.

    The sea shanty was chosen for our audio drama as, on one level, it may be heard as a song about a sailor leaving a woman behind…but more accurately, a song about leaving a ship, and final voyage behind, and returning home. The folk song dates back to the earliest days of seafaring wanderers…

    Alone The Life Of Poe

    I hope that you are well and that this message finds you looking forward to a healthy future.

    The COVID 19 Pandemic wrecked many plans for all of us in 2020, and some of our productions, our original Sherlock Holmes audio dramas, and “ALONE The Life of Poe”, in particular.

    As you know from previous updates, production on “ALONE The Life of Poe” halted when the pandemic began. There was no other option but to stop production, as many of our cast are older, and it was not safe to bring them into recording studios around the world at the time.

    Since halting production, I have used the time to polish the script and triple-fact-check the facts of my dramatization.

    Now, we are cautiously and optimistically looking at the calendar to resume recording, post-production, and music scoring of “ALONE The Life of Poe”.

    It’s our goal to complete recording this year, in 2021, and release “ALONE The Life of Poe” in the first half of 2022.

    Onward we go!

    I hope that you have gotten the vaccine, or are going to get it soon. Please stay safe and well! Until our next update – back in the studio we go!

    - Mark Redfield

    THE CANTERVILLE GHOST Now Available From Redfield Arts Audio


    Posted 2/16/21

    The Canterville Ghost

    Oscar Wilde’s delightful story comes to life with vivid performances by Mark Redfield and Mackenzie Menter (as Virginia), with an original music score by Jennifer Rouse. One of the first stories Wilde published in 1887, “The Canterville Ghost” tells the story of an American family that moves into a haunted country house in England. At first disbelieving in ghosts, the family soon accepts, and then combats, the ghostly antics of Sir Simon de Canterville. Sir Simon has haunted Canterville Chase in various ghastly disguises for years, and becomes increasingly frustrated at the American family’s attempts to spoil the fun. Only little Virginia reaches out to Sir Simon, and with her help, the garrulous ghost is able to find peace. Wilde’s story combines macabre whimsy and gentle humor, making it perennially popular. “He made me see what Life is, and what Death signifies, and why Love is stronger than both.” – The Canterville Ghost.

    An Interview With Writer Dennis Paoli


    Posted 10/25/20

    Dennis Paoli

    By Mark Redfield

    Dennis Paoli writes plays and films. His oeuvre includes adaptations of the works of Poe and Lovecraft. Re-Animator (1985), Dreams of the Witch House (2005), The Black Cat (2007) and Nevermore: An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe, a one-man play starring Jeffrey Combs that has been winning and astonishing audiences around the country since its premiere at The Steve Allen Theatre in Los Angeles in 2009.

    Paoli taught writing and Gothic Literature at Hunter College, City University of New York. Now retired from teaching, he is busier than ever, writing. He is also Donor/Advisor of the Heidi Paoli Fund for cancer patients. 

    I talked with Dennis about his approach to adaptation and screen and play writing, and getting under the skin of the man Edgar Allan Poe.


    An Interview With Director Stuart Gordon


    Posted 10/22/20Stuart Gordon

    Stuart Gordon (August 11, 1947 – March 24, 2020) began his creative life in the Chicago theatre world. He founded The Organic Theatre in 1969. There, he and his company created electrifying theatre, and produced some of David Mamet’s earliest plays. Moving to Los Angeles to pursue filmmaking, Gordon’s debut film “Re-Animator” (1985) has become a favorite with movie-goers around the world. He met and cast Jeffrey Combs in “Re-Animator”, the beginning of a life-long collaboration between the two. The screenplay was by Dennis Paoli, a dear friend from Gordon’s theatre days in the 1960s. Stuart Gordon would make films with Combs and Paoli for the rest of his life. Highlights in Stuart Gordon’s film career as a director include “Dagon”, “From Beyond”, “King of The Ants”, and David Mamet’s “Edmond”. Screenplays include “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids”. When given the opportunity to adapt a Poe story to Showtime’s series “Masters of Horror”, Gordon chose to adapt Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat”. He gathered his long-time screenwriting partner Dennis Paoli, and actor Jeffrey Combs to play Poe. While in production, Combs and Gordon began talking about Combs doing a Poe one man show. The result, after a period of research and rehearsal, resulted in the acclaimed “Nevermore, An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe”, premiering at the Steve Allen Theatre in Los Angeles in 2009. Stuart Gordon passed away on March 24th, 2020. His films live on. This audio book production is dedicated to his memory. Without Stuart Gordon, there would be no “Nevermore, An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe”.

    An Interview with Caroline Munro, Star of “Sinbad and the Pirate Princess” from Redfield Arts Audio


    Posted 9/9/20

    Caroline Munro

    Caroline Munro stars in our audio drama adventure “Sinbad and the Pirate Princess”, now available worldwide on Audible! When I discussed the project with her, it was a toss up as to do the Sinbad script, or a sequel to Dracula I had written. She was eager to tackle “Sinbad” first, as she had starred in Ray Harryhausen’s 1974 fantasy film “The Golden Voyage of Sinbad”, and was on the board of The Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation. And so we took off for high adventure on the Arabian Sea with Sinbad and Junah, the Pirate Princess of the title! Jonathan and Mina Harker awaits us in the future…

    Caroline is regarded by her most passionate fans as The First Lady of Fantasy. From her Hammer films of the 1970s, and starring roles in fantasy films such as “At The Earth’s Core” and “The Golden Voyage of Sinbad”, to the assassin Naomi in the James Bond blockbuster “The Spy Who Loved Me”, and her roles in cinema and audio drama today, Caroline’s beauty and talent have captured the hearts of audiences internationally.

    Episode 56 - “The Fall of The City” by Archibald MacLeish Starring Orson Welles and Burgess Meredith

    Fascism is a slippery word. It’s meaning changes and is nuanced with each incarnation. Fascist leaders copy other fascists , and use what is expedient to control the people.

    We present the audio drama “the Fall of the City” by Archibald MacLeish.
    Produced by the Columbia Workshop for CBS Radio and presented on April 11th, 1937.
    This experimental radio play was a sensation when broadcast in the spring of 1937, and made an overnight radio star of 22 year-old Orson Welles. The New York Times selected “the Fall of the City” as one of the best radio broadcasts of 1937.

    The Fall of the City
    By Archibald MacLeish
    Recorded at the drill hall of the Seventh Regiment Armory in New York City on April 11th, 1937.

    THE STORY OF POE Audiobook Now Available!

    Posted 10/11/18


    If you are brand-new to the works and life of the great American storyteller and poet Edgar Allan Poe, this recording is for you!

    Sherwin Cody wrote this biography for beginners of the wonderful works and life of Poe as part of a series of books for young readers in 1899. Mark Redfield, who narrates this book, has made some small revisions where needed, updating the manuscript for historic accuracy based on new information since “The Story of Edgar Allan Poe” was originally published. Poems by Poe have been added to this spoken word addition, that were not in the 1899 original.

    If you’re just beginning your journey into the life and works of Edgar Allan Poe, this audio recording is perfect for you!

    If you are a seasoned Poe aficionado, then share and gift this spoken word recording of “The Story of Edgar Allan Poe” with a young person just meeting Poe for the first time!

    Welcome, dear listener!

    Mark RedfieldIf you love great audio drama and audio books, you've come to the right place. We’re currently in production with some wonderful audio drama and books and we can't wait to share them with you! 

    Coming up as we move toward the new year is an exciting seven-part audio drama series about a haunted theater in Seattle. We call it SEASON 13: A SEATTLE CHRISTMAS CAROL. We’ve assembled a fine cast of voice actors, including Rik Deskin, Olivia McMahon, and Brinke Stevens. I get to play the main ghost that stalks the fictional Majestic Theatre in our story, called Jack Fairbanks. If you love the theater, theater folk, stories of old Hollywoood and old Broadway, and fun ghost stories, this series hits Audible and iTunes just after Thanksgiving!

    Speaking of Dickens' classic ghost story (which is the play they're presenting in our series “Season 13: A Seattle Christmas Carol”)  I'm doing an all-new reading of the original story, with all new music and sound effects by Jennifer Rouse. My favorite ghost story! 

    Next year will see the release of some great, original audio drama, including THE CRIMES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES (from my original story) and more Holmes action in David Gerrold’s THE CASE OF THE GREEN CARNATION.

    PoeForevermore Radio Theater

    We will continue to produce Poe audio adaptations and audio books. In 2018 listen for our audio book THE STORY OF EDGAR ALLAN POE (a wonderful primer for people new to Poe’s life and work) and our adaptation of Poe’s gooiest horror tale, VALDEMAR. 

    Vampire Hunters Incorporated 

    The series of novels that I co-write with Stuart Voytilla will also be an audio drama series in 2018. I'm very excited about these projects. The audio adventures of vampire hunter Bertram Welles in Manhattan will be a series of fully dramatized 30 minute episodes, many based on the collection of short stories called MANHATTAN AFTER MIDNIGHT, to be published Ina few months.

    Audio books of CULT OF THE NOSFERATU and a full dramatization of HARKER AND THE SHADOW OF DRACULA co-starring Caroline Munro (who did SINBAD AND THE PIRATE PRINCESS with us) are in the works. 

    There is so much coming and I hope that you will visit us here regularly to keep up with all the new titles and projects, and our events and shows and conventions that we will be appearing at through-out the year. 

    And don't forget to sign up for our mailing list so that we can tell you about breaking news of our work as it happens, before anyone else!
