Mass Hysteria Entertainment Company, Inc. Hires National Lampoon Scribes for Original Screenplay

HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - January 20, 2010) - Mass Hysteria Entertainment Company, Inc. (OTCBB: MHYS) is pleased to announce the hiring of Josh "Worm" Miller and Patrick Casey to write an original screenplay entitled, "Pub Crawl." The story is the first one approved as a potential Mass Hysteria movie that involves audience involvement.

Worm Miller hails from 'tropical' Minneapolis where he made the mini-cult-favorite "Hey, Stop Stabbing Me!," for which he received nominations for writing and directing. Miller also co-wrote "National Lampoon's Dorm Daze 1 & 2," "Battle For Terra," and "Gamebox 1.0," which won Best Screenplay at the 2006 Internacional de Cine Fantastico y de Terror de Estepona (it's in Spain). Miller also dabbles in the world of sketch comedy and writes for the humor site

Patrick Casey was also born in Minneapolis and immediately began making people laugh with his hilarious drooling. He attended Boston University, graduating magna cum Laude and has co-written "Dorm Daze 1 and 2," and "Gamebox 1.0."

"Worm and Patrick are two of the funniest new writers we have come across in a long time," said Mass Hysteria's SR VP Comedy, Pat Proft ("Police Academy," "Naked Gun," "Scary Movie 3 & 4"). We look forward to working closely with them in the creation of the first interactive Mass Hysteria movie.
