Robert Steven Rhine

Robert Steven Rhine is an American writer and actor. He is also the founder, publisher, and "Deaditor-In-Chief" of "Girls and Corpses", a horror/comedy magazine.

Written work

Rhine's first fiction collection, "Me Brain Escape Me" (Sun Dog Press) was heralded by "Publishers Weekly" as, "a successful mix of humor and horror." Metro London was, "fascinated with the blurred boundary between reality and the darkest recesses of imagination... doused in gallons of acid black humor." Famed writer William F. Nolan (author of "Logan's Run" and 60 books) called Rhine, "a bold new writer with powerhouse ideas and the talent to bring them to life."

Robert has sold fiction to over one hundred magazines and the published anthologies: "Dark Delicacies" (Carroll & Graf) alongside Ray Bradbury and Clive Barker winner of the Bram Stoker Award; "Dead Cat Bouncing"; "Framed"; "The Fringe" and "Scream When You Burn."

In 2005, R.S. Rhine won first prize in the World Horror Con Dark Fiction Contest for his story "Propeller Boy." Rhine also received the Herman M. Swafford Fiction Award for his story "Andros" in 1997.

R.S. Rhine began working in comic books as a contributing writer for Cracked Magazine and Insidious Tales. Rhine's first solo comic book, "Selected Reading From Satan's Powder Room" (Asylum Press) quickly sold out and was followed up by a second helping titled "CHICKEN SOUP FOR SATAN," also distributed by Diamond. Alan Katz (producer of HBO's "Tales From The Crypt") commented, "Gross putrid and downright offensive. Higher praise just doesn't exist!" A third comic book in the series, "Satan Gone Wild," premiered in New Orleans on Halloween and also sold out. The success of these "humor-rific" comic books led to Rhine's 280 page, color graphic novel "Satan's 3 Ring Circus of Hell" (Asylum Press). Forty-three of the top comic book horror artists in the industry (including William Stout, Tim Vigil, Eric Pigors, John Cassaday, Hilary Barta, Alex Pardee, Alan M. Clark and D.W. Frydendall) contributed to the graphic novel, illustrating forty-three twisted Rhine tales. The book took top honors at the 2007 DIY Book Awards.

Rhine has also written for National Lampoon.

Film work

Rhine wrote, produced and starred in the filmed pilot, "Vinnie & Angela's Beauty Salon and Funeral; Parlor," Grand Prize Winner (Gold Cineman) at the Australian International Film Festival and winner at Worldfest Houston. The film sold to Universal's Hypnotic Films. Rhine also wrote, produced, directed and starred in the epic/cult/satire "Road Lawyers and Other Briefs," winner at the Chicago, New York, Houston and Australian film fests (distributed by A.I.P.).

Rhine's animated series pilot Sickom, which Rhine wrote and directed (animated by Frank Forte) was bought by Spike & Mike's Sick and Twisted Festival of Animation and premiered at Comic-Con San Diego for an audience of over a thousand. The dark comedy series, about a serial killer's home life, was included on Spike & Mike's DVD "Unprotected" and toured animation festivals around the world.

Before becoming a full time fiction, screenplay and comic book writer, R.S. Rhine worked for a decade as a unit publicist for Universal Studios, TriStar Pictures, DreamWorks and Imagine Entertainment on such features as: "The Craft", "Mousehunt", "Hush", "Tremors", "Problem Child", "Double Team" and "Toy Soldiers", amongst others. He's worked as an entertainment publicist, book publicist, film advertising copywriter, segment producer for "PM Magazine" and also worked for CNN.

As an actor, Rhine has appeared in over a two dozen plays (including two L.A. premieres), television, features, print and commercials. Rhine also portrayed Rod Serling for director Joe Dante's "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror" ride at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Coincidentally, Rhine met Rod Serling several times when he was ten years old, who was an acquaintance of his family.
