KELTON’S DARK CORNER: TRILOGY ONE, The series-within-a-film starring The late Paul Marco in his final performance as “Kelton the Cop”, had it’s triumphant premiere on April 20, 2009 on MySpace Russia.  The series is being shown in 14 segments of approximately four minutes each from April 20th to June 3rd at

The character “Kelton the Cop” appeared in three films directed by iconic “Cult” film director Edward D. Wood, Jr., including the legendary PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE(1959), sometimes referred to as “The Kelton Trilogy”.

The film, which was intended as a DVD or cable series detailing  the star/character’s misadventures in the surreal, Noirish twilight area known as “Kelton’s Dark Corner”, was abruptly halted when the actor died during production.

The project rebounded when the storyline was rewritten and redeveloped, utilizing the scenes that had been shot with Marco.  Narration for the remaining two episodes was provided by fellow PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE alumnus Conrad Brooks, while professional “body double” Shelley Michelle provided her experience as the transformed Kelton-into-“Keltonova”.

The KELTON  “superseries” is a collaboration between the film’s director, Vasily Shumov and the newly formed MySpace Russia.  The native Russian born Shumov is one of the country’s most prominent Rock musicians.  A prolific video artist, “KDC” is Shumov’s first feature length project.
