HART D. FISHER:
THE SCARIEST MAN IN AMERICA…

“Even surrounded by coffins, bats, a life-sized Frankenstein statue and legendary fright-meister artist Bernie Wrightson, Fisher's the scariest thing in the room."
- Wizard Magazine: The  Guide To Comics

There is precious little that outlaw filmmaker Hart D. Fisher hasn’t accomplished.

He is a successful horror author, a critically acclaimed poet (Poems for the Dead), a savage horror filmmaker who’s done the impossible (producing the critically acclaimed Flowers on the Razorwire feature film with a bind director), and is a sharp new voice sending shockwaves through the reality crime genre with his mind bending true story of murder, loss and rage, posting monthly to best selling true crime author Corey Mitchell’s #1 True Crime site, In Cold Blog (an Amazon.com Kindle Bestseller). Not satisfied with that, Mr. Fisher has also been lending his unique talents to the world of music videos, having directed cutting edge videos for international death metal legends Obituary, kings of black metal Dark Funeral and Mr. Fisher is currently involved in projects with horror metal superstar Glenn Danzig and Gorgeous Frankenstein. His first feature, The Garbage Man, was released on DVD June 2009 to serious critical acclaim. It has been an official selection of film festivals around the world and has garnered the creator rave reviews, including praise from the likes of FANGORIA’s Tony Timpone and in the pages of RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE.

“The Garbage Man is an intelligent horror-drama that is well worth blowing chunks over, this is one audacious bastard of a serial killer”
-Rue Morgue Magazine

With a long and controversial career which began in comic books, where Fisher discovered such talents as Gerard Way  (lead singer for the chart-topping rock band My Chemical Romance); John Cassaday (Captain America) and political essayist Stephen Elliot (a regular contributor for the San Francisco Chronicle, award-winning novelist and child protection advocate) among others, Fisher has carved out a fierce reputation and was dubbed ‘The Most Dangerous Man in Comics.’ (Hero Illustrated, 1994.)

“Hart is one of the most controversial figures ever in the medium.”

Fisher’s opinions on serial killers and serial killer culture have been sought by numerous television producers for programs such as ABC's DayOne, CNN's Murder By Numbers documentary, Entertainment Tonight, Larry King Live, The Jerry Springer Show, The Bertice Berry Show, CNN Headline News, A&E's Biography, and in magazines such as Time, Tattoo Savage, Hero Illustrated, People, The Comics Journal, the non-fiction best seller The A-Z Guide to Serial Killers and many more.

Fisher began his art career as the publisher behind Boneyard Press, a ferociously independent publishing house that has garnered coverage all over the world, in Japan (Words), Germany (Ego Magazine), England (The Sun) and brought the mass media (as well as protest marchers) to his door thanks to books such as Jeffrey Dahmer: An Unauthorized Biography of a Serial Killer, OJ's Big Bust Out, Rush Limbaugh Must Die, Dark Angel and Howard Stern Vs. Rush Limbaugh. Fisher's two collections of poetry, (Poems for the Dead & Still Dead) have been lauded in Wicked Mystic, Carpe Noctem, and Dark's Art Parlor to name but a few. His work has been called relentless and heart wrenching.

“I’ve always said that poetry was for people who weren’t hard enough to write prose, and most of it makes me throw it against a wall, but Poems for the Dead kicked my guts out.”
–Warren Ellis/Planetary

Twice, Hero Illustrated placed Mr. Fisher in their 100 Most Important People In The Comics Industry list, and rock star Glenn Danzig hired Fisher to be the managing editor for his publishing company, Verotik, which Mr. Fisher promptly steered to the height of it’s popularity and controversy. Fisher and co-author Christian Moore’s story for Verotika #4, "A Taste of Cherry" has the notorious distinction of being banned in Oklahoma on the grounds that it was obscene material and is banned in that state to this day. Never one to shy away from outrageous showmanship, Fisher has faked his own death, spit in the eye of industry goliath Marvel Comics (at the largest comic convention in America Fisher printed up hundreds of black t-shirts proclaiming that "Marvel Can Suck My Cock”-- The shirts sold out instantly and dogged the larger comics publisher at comics conventions for years after) and has proven he has a gift for stirring up controversy that sells his products by the truckload.

"Hart has proven he has talent and there is a market out there for queasy, uneasy, in-yo'-face, material.”
-Tattoo Savage Magazine

In addition to serving as producer and on camera host for the internationally syndicated television program American Horrors ( soon to be broadcast in over 17 different countries) and it’s distribution wing here in the United States (with distribution partners Indie Pictures), Mr. Fisher has been writing, directing, or producing his television shows American Horrors, Flowers on the Razorwire, doing pre-production for The Living Weapon, running his post production house Crime Pays Inc. and has handed off the translation of Poems For The Dead into Portuguese to international recording artists’ Moonspell front man Fernando Riberio.

“I didn't think a film about a black serial killer would get to me, but it did. The Garbage Man really got under my skin. I loved it.”
-Tony Timpone/Fangoria

Mr. Fisher has been a paid feature speaker around the world (including a headlining role at the Festival of Fantasy & Terror in Mexico City, sharing a building with the President of Mexico), and has spoken publicly about American poetry, team building, leadership development, and all things horror. Mr. Fisher is currently the subject of a new documentary, Hart D. Fisher: The Scariest Man in American (directed by horror sensation Roger “Nobody Loves Alice” Scheck), that will be filming through out 2009 and 2010 for a release in 2011.

"As we build and brand our thematic channels we are very careful about the companies we allow to program content in the streams. Hart D. Fisher presents very unique products that are naturals for compelling content and shows. We look forward to a long and prosperous association as we market the channels around the world."
-Carol Davis/Executive/Global Broadcasting & Syndication, Inc.

-Music Media Founder/Henk Van Meer

“We’re excited to have Mr. Hart D. Fisher as our partner in bringing quality and scary horror films to DVD and television. Mr. Fisher’s directorial debut, of the Garbage Man, will be our inaugural DVD release in June of 2009. We truly believe that Mr. Fisher has turned the horror genre upside down and we are happy to be part of it and look forward to a long association with the American Horrors brand and Mr. Fisher.”
-Todd Taylor/CEO of Indie Pictures

“His story is one of the most unique in American comics publishing history. He came under the gun of his peers, the media and a lot of the comics industry for the controversial books that he published along with pulling off some pretty ballsy stunts. It was guerilla marketing at its’ finest and most shocking.”
-OptimumWound.com

“Hart Fisher’s sensibility is a great match for our film. When I was in high school, I followed Fisher in the media, defending his Jeffrey Dahmer comics against the censorship sheep. It’s thrilling to have made a movie that’s now part of his American Horrors brand.”
-Rule of 3 Director/ERIC SHAPIRO

“I can’t think of anyone more equipped to talk about censorship, morality gone wrong, exploitation, and the removal of one’s Constitutional guarantee of freedom than Hart D. Fisher.”
