Ms. Enlow is the Horror Producer, and the heart & soul of Next
Monkey Productions. She began the company when she noticed that not many independent
filmmakers were completing their projects. "It was very frustrating to work on
the set of a movie that never would be finished. You'd believe that 'this time
would be different,' and get excited about seeing the finished product only to hear the movie had been scrapped." When her patience finally expired, Next Monkey Productions was born.
"...There is no other genre but HORROR for me. I don't do chic flicks...give
me the blood and gore! I LOVE the thrill of the scare." Enlow is inspired by horror films like Texas Chainsaw Mascara, and
Eli Roth's Cabin Fever. "I had a long visit with Eli Roth after he sold his movie Cabin Fever....I was extremely excited about
completing our current movie Branded, and challenged by the journey of obtaining distribution for our movies."
Brain Damage Films has signed on both Toe Tags and Branded for US
and Foreign rights. "This is a dream come true. It is one challenge to complete a movie, and an even bigger challenge to make
the movie quality good enough that you win awards at Film Festivals.... and your movies get picked up by a very well known
distributor in the horror movie world."
Since it's inception, Next Monkey Productions (NMP) has garnered
press relating to both it's founder, Darla Enlow, and it's productions - TOE TAGS and BRANDED.
An article about TOE TAGS appeared in the nationally
distributed horror magazine, FANGORIA. Adding to the movie’s national coverage
was an article in yet another nationally distributed horror magazine, FEMME FATALES.
