Available for pre-order and other exclusives, Amazon Hot Box mixes action, dark comedy, 70s Italian horror and a must-see array of strong female characters.So we’re happy to hear she has joined up with her crew of Cinematographer/Editor Jordan Barnes-Crouse ( Ghost Can) and Producer/Production Designer Topher Graham (The Man in the Rabbit Mask); with additional support from Selena Raskin, Ben Gammound, and Burns the Dragon.
