Shane has also filmed several short sequels to some of his classic horror films, the most disturbing of which is Beyond Dorian, a horrifying sequel to Dorian Gray, which you can view below. Shane was also kind enough to film an exclusive introduction to last year’s Frighten Brighton horror event at the Rock Inn, Brighton.

So beast wishes and many happy returns (from the grave!) to the legendary Mr Shane Briant!
