SHS graduate (class of ’85) releases horror movie


Kayliegh Trunfio, Staff Writer

B. Harrison Smith has recently released an original horror film, Death House. What makes this so special is that Harrison is an SHS alumni. He graduated in 1985 and was the president of his class.

Harrison was directly involved with writing and directing Death House. He has been passionate about movies and writing since his days at SHS, where he was a member of the Mountaineer newspaper staff.

The Sherman Theater recently hosted the release of Smith’s film. He was excited because it was his hometown.

“I loved being involved with the Stroudsburg High School newspaper and I loved Mr. Burnett. Nothing but fun things,” said Smith.

Smith has learned a lot through his filming and writing experiences. He offers up some useful advice for students beginning to write: “Write, don’t talk, keep writing and take criticism. Opinions are hard in the world now a days.”
