Rhine has sold fiction to over one hundred magazines and published anthologies, including the Bram Stoker winning "DARK DELICACIES," (Carroll & Graf) alongside Ray Bradbury and Clive Barker. In 2005, R.S. Rhine won first prize in the WORLD HORROR CON Dark Fiction Contest for his story "Propeller Boy."
As a filmmaker, Rhine wrote, produced and starred in the 35mm 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 in 2001 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 SICKCOM, 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. Rhine recently premiered his animated G&C music video "CRAZY FUCKED UP BITCH" sung by The Fabulous Miss Wendy and directed by Pretend for Real Studios.
R.S. Rhine started in comic books as a contributing staff 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. A third comic book in Rhine's series, "SATAN GONE WILD," premiered in New Orleans on Halloween 2004 and also sold out. The success of these "humorr-ific" comic books led to Rhine's 280 page, color graphic novel "SATAN'S 3 RING CIRCUS OF HELL." Forty-three of the top horror artists in the world (such as William Stout, Tim Vigil, Hilary Barta and Alan M. Clark) contributed to the book, illustrating over forty twisted Rhine tales.
