Sickening Pictures and Dexahlia Productions have released Love Is Dead for free online viewing. The emotional horror short stars adult film actors Aaron “Small Hands” Thompson and Joanna Angel, alongside genre favorite Ruben Pla (Insidious, Big Ass Spider).

In Love Is Dead, a man recounts the final moment of his marriage and tries to determine if he could have saved his wife, and himself:

Love Is Dead is written and directed by Jerry Smith, a horror film journalist best known for his contributions to Fangoria, Blumhouse, and Icons of Fright.

While his day job finds him exploring fictional horror, Smith’s dark drama deals with the real horror we can force each other to endure. The filmmaker drew inspiration from his own life to tap into the raw emotion.

“I strove to make an emotional horror short about the destructive and abusive power of what we say,” explains Smith. “While writing the script, I was in the middle of a painful divorce, one that had many ups and even more downs throughout the eight years we were married. It was a toxic relationship and one which became very emotionally violent, leading both of us down very upsetting and destructive paths. My real life motivated the writing Love Is Dead, the story of my ex-wife and I and how sometimes something very beautiful and full of love can eventually turn into something painful and full of hate.”
