Cadaver Hour Films

About Cadaver Hour Films
Cadaver Hour Films is an up-and-coming production company out of New Jersey founded by Raymond Morse and Christopher Wendland. Childhood friends since middle school, they both have always had a love for movies and stuck by each other over the years. Later, the two of them would talk about the direction their lives would take and decide that a future in filmmaking is what they want to strive for. Although they share many of the same tastes in film, they both bring together vastly different visions of nearly all aspects in filmmaking and blend together the best of both worlds with their ideas.

Starting from scratch with little experience and many ideas, Ray and Chris began to work on their first film and soon Cadaver Hour Films was born. Seeking little more than experience, they decided to enter a contest for George A. Romero's then newly-released "Diary of the Dead" with their short film, "Day 53." It was then that they knew their love for movies and filmmaking would not stop there. To follow up their first project, Ray and Chris entered the ABCs of Death: The 26th Director contest with their next film, "Trepan," which reached 100,000 online views in just a year.

The year 2013 brings a lot of excitement for Cadaver Hour Films with new ideas and new films on the horizon, so enjoy the show!
