cinema since his early childhood when his father began taking him to
revival house movie theatres in the late 1970s. He later graduated film
school in Los Angeles, California.
In 1999, Palumbo formed Fright
Flix Productions and became a fresh force in the independent motion
picture world when he wrote, produced and directed his first feature
"NUTBAG" (a movie which was released edited in most countries).
In 2002, he followed this opus with the award-winning 35mm short film,
"SINISTER", which was shot on location in New York City.

and directed the inimitable "MURDER-SET-PIECES, which had a major

at the prestigious Sitges International Film Festival in Barcelona,
Spain, "MURDER-SET-PIECES" was the first unrated American
horror feature motion picture to hit theaters in over 20 years.
Palumbo's new feature will be the 35mm neo-noir thriller "The Last Gas Station" (2012)
