This shall be one of my favorite columns so far. Mainly, because I have an interview with the director of my favorite horror film of all time, Kevin Tenney. Words cannot explain how happy I am about this. I even went on to tell him I am his biggest fan and well he now refers to me as his biggest fan, HA! Are you guys excited about the Night of the Demons remake??? I am always boycotting remakes unless they have that special ‘something’ and well this remake seems to have that special ‘something’. So for this column I will include that interview that I have been dying to show you. I know another staff writer for the site had already interviewed him, so my questions may be a little different. I don’t like asking directors/actors lame questions that they’re always being asked and I like to keep the conversation interesting. So if you think my interview sucks, you actually suck. My interviews with Ari Lehman and Emily Haack are taking a little longer than expected. I had some additional questions for them so now I am just waiting. I also hope to have another interview with the boys over at Wicked Pixel Cinema next week about their upcoming projects.
Here’s the interview with Kevin Tenney….
I hate how everyone always asks a filmmaker what their favorite scary movie is.Â So in that case, what in your opinion, is the worst horror film you have ever seen?
Since the advent of digital video has made filmmaking so cheap that almost anyone can make a feature film in his own backyard, a new â€śworst filmâ€ť is being made every day.Â In fact, the bar has been lowered so far that audiences will now forgive a film that would have had them rioting in the aisles 10 years ago and demanding a refund.Â But if youâ€™re talking about professionally made, high-profile features, Iâ€™m going to have to go with â€śHalloween III; Season Of The Witch.â€ťÂ The people involved are all very talented and have gone on to do great things since, butÂ this particular film has a silly story with no scares and no tension as well as no humor, at least no intentional humor.Â Donâ€™t get me wrong; Iâ€™ve definitely made a few less-than-stellar films myself, but I honestly canâ€™t fathom what the â€śHalloween IIIâ€ť filmmakers were thinking.Â Although, I did develop a huge crush on Stacy Nelkin, the leading lady, for years to come.
WOW! I always say Halloween III when people ask me that! Is it true you made your first 8mm film when you were in the 6th grade?Â If this is not a rumor, do you care to talk about this project?
Itâ€™s true.Â I always wanted to make films.Â I wrote short stories for my own amusement as far back as I can remember, and my brother, Dennis, and I drew our own comic books, with our own super-heroes.Â Granted, they looked suspiciously like our favorite Marvel and DC super-heroes, but we were still very proud of them.Â Walking home from grade school, I would see an alley and think, â€śThat would be a cool location for a movie.â€ťÂ When I was in sixth grade, Bell & Howell came out with a Super-8 camera that could be plugged into a cassette tape recorder; the camera would send a sync pulse to the recorder every time you turned the camera on and off.Â Then you could plug the recorder into the projector, and the cassette would play sync sound with the projected image.Â The down side was that everything had to be shot in sequence, you had to get each shot in the first take, and you couldnâ€™t do any editing afterwards, other than to splice the
different fifty-foot, three-minute rolls of film together.Â I begged my parents to get me the camera, projector, and recorder for Christmas, and although the entire set-up was pretty expensive, my parents agreed.Â If they hadnâ€™t, Iâ€™d probably be a used car salesman now.Â My first production was a twenty-minute gangster/detective film with all of my sixth-grade classmates playing adult roles.Â It was pretty awful, but I was hooked on filmmaking from then on.Â By the time I applied to USC Film School, I had made 20 Super-8 films, ranging in length from 20 minutes to 60 minutes.
And yes, like I told you on the podcast. I fell in love with Night of the Demons when I was 12.Â I used to stand in the horror section amazed at all the cover art, and Night of the Demons really stood out to me, so I had my ol’ granny rent it for me.Â I loved it so much.Â I began reviewing horror films at the age of 13 and started a website (I was a very strange and gifted child) and Night of the Demons was one of the first films I reviewed.Â You really have no idea how much of a pleasure this is to me and I cannot wait for the remake.Â I am usually against remakes but this seems like a winner to me.Â Are you happy with Shannon Elizabeth taking on the role of Angela?
Shannon is a beautiful and talented actress.Â Why wouldnâ€™t I be happy with her playing Angela?Â The entire cast is really strong, and their performances bring a lot of energy to the film.Â And what in the world was your grandmother thinking, letting a 13-year-old watch â€śNight Of The Demonsâ€ť?Â My 17-year-old daughter hasnâ€™t even seen it yet.
You know it’s funny, I used to be in dance too, and I recreated the scene where Angela is dancing with the strobe lights, and even that song and costume.Â I was banned from ever dancing at that dance convention again.Â I was 15 years old.
That exact same thing happened to me, too.Â Of course, I was 30, and dancing at a convent.
I remember seeing Witchboard at a young age too.Â Did Tawny Kitaen seem crazy at the time?Â That may be an out of line question and so I totally understand if you don’t want to answer that, but please think of me as a huge fan and not just a writer out to destroy you.Â I’m just wondering if she’s really bat sh*t crazy.Â Pardon my language too.Â I’m not as professional as some writers like to be.
Tawny was no crazier than anyone else in this industry, which is to say, weâ€™re all a little crazy.Â You have to be to do what we do.Â I donâ€™t know what personal demons drove Tawny to where she is now, but I wish her nothing but the best.
I really hope you come onto our all girl podcast show.Â It’s like The View only not as boring and we are way hotter…. and we discuss horror related topics.Â We haven’t thought of a good title for our show though :(
Me, alone with a group of hot women?Â No, that doesnâ€™t sound even remotely appealing.Â Where do I sign up?
I don’t want to keep you.Â Thank you for your time and you’re awesome…. if I haven’t said that already.
Lucky for you, I never get tired of hearing it.
It’s now time for awesome news that doesn’t suck! I know there are some Buffy fans out there like me. I am not interested in the movie over the series being done but anything to do with Buffy I like to post. I stumbled upon an interview with Anthony Stewart Head and he had some interesting thigs to say about the film. Anthony Head, who played Rupert Giles in the TV version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, says heâ€™d sign on in a flash for the planned big-screen remake of the 1992 flick.
“It’s just very strange that anyone would think of doing it without him,” Anthony tells us of a Joshless Buffy reboot. He only asks that Joss Whedon, who wrote the script for the original film and later developed the series that ran from 1997 to 2003, helm the project. â€śI love the idea of a Buffy movie. I think itâ€™s about time,â€ť he tells Mr. Media host Bob Andelman. â€śIâ€™m not sure about the idea of it being done without Joss Whedon. In fact, Iâ€™m absolutely clear that it shouldnâ€™t be done without Joss Whedon. â€śItâ€™s Jossâ€™ baby. And everything that was right about the show – and for me really didnâ€™t work in the original movie – everything that was right was Joss,â€ť continues Anthony, who currently plays King Uther in the NBC series Merlin â€śBecause he was young and he didnâ€™t have much of a voice in the original movie. â€śIf he was involved, I would leap at the chance at doing something again with him.â€ť
F*cking A! I also have Machete news that I have been dying for. I cannot wait to see the movie.Â DANNY TREJO will play “Machete”, the madman bent on revenge. MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ (“Lost”, Fast & Furious, Avatar) to be playing “Luz”. JONAH HILL (“Superbad”, “Funny People”)Â will play “Julio” ROBERT DE NIRO, will take on the role of “Senator McLaughlin”. I think I just wet myself. Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis are teaming up to begin filming Machete on July 29th which is set to be released sometime next year.
Then we have another Resident Evil film. Not sure if I will see it since I am a huge fan of the game and the films have been hardly anything like the game. I will watch the first if it comes on tv but I am still disappointed. It’s the nerd in me. Milla Jovovich will return this fall for the 4th installment in the Resident Evil series and Paul W.S. Anderson is writing the script. However, there is no word on a director for the film, but there’s been reports that the Afterlife is locked in for an 8 week shooting period which will begin on September 28th. The release date has been set for September 17, 2010.
Sometimes there’s a movie title that immediately catches your attention and just doesn’t let go. I’m talking stuff like LESBIAN VAMPIRE KILLERS, ZOMBIE STRIPPERS and DONKEY PUNCH. Well in the same category as these flicks comes BAD GIRLS! BAD GIRLS is based on a novel by Alex McAulay, who’ll also be adapting the script according to The Hollywood Reporter. It is about a wild teenager shipped off to a reform school on a remote Caribbean island. Upon her arrival, she and the other girls find themselves facing a series of violent threats from drug dealers and killers as they battle their own worst impulses. It’s described as LORD OF THE FLIES meets HEATHERS. Now that’s pretty f*cked up.
The good word today has Inferno Entertainment picking this one up! They scored the film from MTV Films, who had BAD GIRLS tied up since 2007 in the form of THE LOST GIRLS. At that time Holly Brix was in line to adapt the script. Well it seems MTV and Brix are out while Inferno and McAulay are now in! Who better to adapt a novel into a script than the novel’s author?
The Hollywood Reporter just passed along word that hottie Sarah Habel (below) just signed on to star in UNREQUITED. Unfotunately for her she’ll be the target of this twisted love roller coaster! UNREQUITED tells the story of Ben Jacobs, a troubled young man who, on his 18th birthday, has to leave the group home for “troubled teens” where he has been living for the past several months and move back in with his alcoholic mother. Upon his return, Ben soon discovers that his girlfriend, Jessica Morgan, has moved on with her life and is now dating an older college guy. Desperate for love and unable to cope with losing Jessica, Ben’s troubled past catches up with him as he kidnaps her in an attempt to regain her affection. Spiraling out of control and on a very dangerous path, Ben must ultimately decide whether to let her go, or hold on to the one person he loves, even if it means destroying them both in the process.
It looks like we’re finally going to get another Stuart Gordon movie. TrackingB.com is reporting that Gordon, along with writer David Benullo (HALLOWED GROUND), is attached to THE HOUSE ON THE BORDERLAND, an adaptation of the 1908 novel by William Hope Hodgson. Not surprisingly, the story seems to have one foot firmly in H.P. Lovecraft territory.Â Here’s Wikipedia’s summation of the plot:
In 1877, two gentlemen, Messrs Tonnison and Berreggnog, head into Ireland to spend a week fishing in the village of Kraighten. While there, they discover in the ruins of a very curious house a diary of the man who had once owned it. Its torn pages seem to hint at an evil beyond anything that existed on this side of the curtains of impossibility.
Last we heard from the “Ghost Rider 2″ camp, Sony and the star of the 2007 film, Nicolas Cage, were still looking for a writer and director to helm the sequel. A well-known comic book fan, Cage hasn’t been shy about sharing his thoughts on where the studio should go for the sequel and his plans to reprise his role as Johnny blaze, the human side of the Spirit of Vengeance. Got a vid here of Nicholas Cage (LUVZ!) that’s going to be in the sequel to Ghost Rider. I’m pretty sure I have been updating Ghost Rider 2 news here and there for a while but this is new to me. While discussing his role in the upcoming CGI/live-action family film “G-Force” (Cage will voice one of the movie’s guineau pig heroes), the actor told MTV News that he’s looking less toward “sequel” and more toward “reboot” for the next “Ghost Rider” film.
Alrighty, I have more Saw news! Whether you love it or hate it the SAW franchise is just going to keep on going. SAW VI isn’t even out for another four months and there’s already confirmation of a script for SAW VII in the works! The confirmation comes in an article over at Variety where they talk about the screenwriting duo of Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Melton and Dunstan have practically become household names to us genre fans with their work on both the FEAST franchise as well as the SAW franchise. ”
Not to mention their upcoming flick THE COLLECTOR. In the article Variety mention how Melton and Dunstan are already working on a SAW VII script as their next project! This just isn’t going to stop huh? I think it’s safe to assume SAW VI will be a hit. Why? I’ve got no idea… but it will be. So what’s SAW VII about? Hell what’s SAW VI about? Who knows. Hopefully we get some more SAW updates soon in preparation of Part VI’s approaching release date of October 23rd. As always you can keep it here for everything and anything Jigsaw.
Bloody-Disgusting just received quite a healthy tip that Tim Sullivan’s long-delayed sequel to his remake of 2001 Maniacs, currently titled 2001 Maniacs: Beverly Hellbillys, is set to finally go behind camera as early as NEXT WEEK.
We are working feverishly to confirm, but companies like IM GLOBAL are being tight-lipped. Rumor has it that Christa Campbell is set to reprise her role as the sexy Milk Maiden, along with Robert Englund as Mayor Buckman, with word that Bill Moseley (TCM 2, The Devil’s Rejects, The Tortured) has joined the cast of crazies. We’ll do some digging to see what we can find out, remember to keep this filed under rumor until we can confirm. Bevery Hellbillys is the second film in a planned trilogy that would end with The Hillbillys Have Eyes. For the synopsis, read below.
2001 Maniacs: Beverly Hellbillys synopsis:
After the sheriff refuses to cover up any further for the maniacs causing all the missing persons in the area, they’re forced to hit the road in what’s dubbed the “Pleasant Valley Traveling Road Show,” where the maniacs head across country in hopes of gathering more victims. We’ll follow a young TV crew called the “Road Rascals” as they find themselves mixed up with another one of the maniacs’ deadly festivals.
It has been rumored for quite some time now, but E! has the exclusive: David Arquette and his wife, Courteney Cox, are returning for Scream 4. It’s official! David Arquette and Courteney Cox have signed on to reunite with the Ghostface killer. “We are going to be doing Scream 4,” Arquette just told me from New York City, where he’s hanging out in plastic box over Madison Square Garden for Feeding America (more on that later). “Kevin Williamson is writing the script at this moment, and hopefully Wes Craven is going to direct.” In the original horror trilogy, Arquette played Deputy Dewey Riley with Cox as a tabloid television reporter Gale Weathers…Rumors began several months ago that the two were in talks for the fourth installment. “I fell in love with my wife on Scream, so the opportunity to bring [Dewey] back to life and for my wife to play that really bitchy character again, it’s just going to be really fun,” Arquette said. “It’s just great.” While Williamson recently revealed that Neve Campbell has turned down the chance to reprise her role as Sidney Prescott, Arquette said, “I hope Neve does it. I really hope so.” As for a new storyline, Arquette laughed: “Kevin has sort of put out the broad strokes, but I don’t think I’m at liberty to share any of that.”
One film coming up with Melissa George (his lips/mouth get on my nerves-but she’s a good actress) called “Triangle” looks promising. I’m pretty sure I have already informed you guys about this film. Director Chris Smith’s Triangle will be hitting the theatres in England on October 16th. In it, Jess and friends head out sailing in the Atlantic but a nasty storm blows up and capsizes them. They are stuck boarding a liner that seems to be completely abandoned. When I watched the trailer a week or two ago I thought it looked like Ghost Ship…but it may actually be better and the plot is a little different. To be honest, I didn’t think Ghost Ship was that bad. I think an abandoned ship in the middle of the ocean with darkness all around is creepy and exciting.
Who else thought that, despite a plot hole or two, MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN was a pretty solid freakinâ€™ flick? I sure as hell did. Well, the director responsible for its very dark and gory look, Ryuhei Kitamura (right), is on his way to delivering his next horror feature. Itâ€™s called TEROTOMA. Yeah, I know itâ€™s a strange name. Perhaps, Iâ€™ll let you know what it refers to, so that you can get a bit more excitedâ€¦â€śTeratomaâ€ť is the medical condition in which a subject forms a large tumor. Now that is just gross, but should make for some creepy horror. Plus, Kitamura is so good with physical ailments (see MEAT TRAIN) that I think this new flick will serve as another sick showpiece for his work. The script for TERATOMA was written by Jim Agnew and Sean Keller, the duo behind GIALLO. No word yet on the cast or even an official plot beyond what the title means. Iâ€™ll keep my eyes wide open for more info as it comes up.
I would also like to see Richard Kelly’s The Box. There is a new poster out for it. Richard Kelly just premiered the poster for his new thriller THE BOX on his Twitter account. This Twitter’s gonna take over all of our lives, folks, I’m not kidding. God I hate it. Plot: Norma (Cameron Diaz) and Arthur Lewis (James Marsden) are a suburban couple with a young child who receive an anonymous gift bearing fatal and irrevocable consequences. A simple wooden box, it promises to deliver its owner $1 million with the press of a button. However, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world… someone they don’t know. With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the crosshairs of a startling moral dilemma and face the true nature of their humanity. Peer into Kelly’s BOX on OCTOBER 30th.
Lets all take a minute to laugh at the new cast member to Eclipse-part of the Twilight series. According to the THR Blog, Australian actor Xavier Samuel has landed the first ‘new’ role in ECLIPSE and his first American role EVER. Wow. I’m speechless. Samuel is set to playÂ a â€śnewborn vampireâ€ť named Riley, a good-looking college student who joins the plot of villain Victoria to murder protagonist Bella (Kristen Stewart). Riley is corrupted by Victoria, for whom he has an inexplicable weakness. You like his picture? Look for Samuel to be plastered all over the place soon enough, and get ready for Slade’s ECLIPSE in theaters June 30th.
Comic Book News:
Well this doesn’t fall under comics but it is horror and it’s a book. Are you a fan of Jane Austen? PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. I had no idea that Ms. Austinâ€™s new affair with our genre would be continuing! Because now, here comesâ€¦SENSE AND SENSIBILITY AND SEA MONSTERS! How the hell do you like that freakinâ€™ cover up top?! It kind of reminds me of the Davy Jones character from PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN. Looks like some major fun. Hereâ€™s the synopsis: Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities. As our story opens, the Dashwood sisters are evicted from their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island full of savage creatures and dark secrets. While sensible Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars, her romantic sister Marianne is courted by both the handsome Willoughby and the hideous man-monster Colonel Brandon.
Can the Dashwood sisters triumph over meddlesome matriarchs and unscrupulous rogues to find true love? Or will they fall prey to the tentacles that are forever snapping at their heels? This masterful portrait of Regency England blends Jane Austenâ€™s biting social commentary with ultraviolent depictions of sea monsters biting. Itâ€™s survival of the fittest-and only the swiftest swimmers will find true love! I know that talk has already begun about PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES turning into a movie.
Ghouls, ghosts and the unnamed things that lurk in dark corners come together in the recently announced trade paperback collection from Bluewater Productionsâ€™ sold out, gothic horror comic book series â€śVincent Price Presents.â€ť Vincent Price Presents Volume I, scheduled for release September 30th, includes four issues from the successful anthology series and features an introduction by film legend and frequent Price collaborator Roger Corman.

If anyone cares, Wrong Turn III is apparently coming to dvd soon. Fall, to be exact. I honestly could care less since I’ve never even liked the first one. Don’t get me wrong, I’d schtup Eliza Dushku in a heart beat (she’s so hot.) BUT she for sure lied on the tonight show a long time ago and said, “OH you have to see my new movie Wrong Turn, IT’S SO SCARY, OMG IT’S SCARY!” So I saw it and well I think the evil-mentally challenged hillbillies chasing teenagers in the woods has been done……too many times. It was also far from being scary. Sorry Dushku. If you’re into the same sorry ‘four college kids getting knocked off by weirdos one by one’ routine then also check out Albino Farm. The movie will be presented in 16×9-enhanced widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround sound, supplemented with a commentary by Anderson and McEwen and a behind-the-scenes featurette. MSRP is $24.95. Pre-order yours for $17.49. Written and directed by Joe Anderson and Sean
McEwen, ALBINO FARM is about college students terrorized in the Ozark Mountains by a brood of vicious, cave-dwelling half-humans; Tammin Sursok, the WWEâ€™s Chris Jericho, THE HOWARD STERN SHOWâ€™s Richard Christy and FEASTâ€™s Duane Whitaker are among the cast. Four animated college friends doing research for a school project find themselves a part of the legend they’re seeking to unravel when car troubles render them lost in uncharted Ozark Territory where a secret and sadistic society of the deformed awaits them. Through their enduring quest for survival, the eerie curtain covering a real-life American legend is lifted, and a past almost as disturbing as its present is uncovered in “Albino Farm.”
A directors cut for Cabin Fever is going to be released. That film was already pretty disgusting. I must see what more they could possibly have to offer. Everyone I know apparently hates the movie but I enjoyed it when I saw it in theaters and I still enjoy it now. You’re all cunts. I also enjoy Eli Roth, so whoever disagrees with that is also a cunt. HollyShorts Film Festival in Los Angeles this August will be sharing the director’s cut of Cabin Fever on August 7th at the Sunset 5. They say that this is the only print in existence and it’s got about 4 extra minutes of footage. Eli Roth wants to see if it was really worth cutting it out or not.
The 1987 film The Gate which starred a pint-sized Stephen Dorff is getting the special edition treatment courtesy of Lionsgate. it will have audio commentary by director Tibor TakĂˇcs, interviews with the cast and crew, a still gallery and theatrical trailer. Set date for October 6th.
Well that does it for this week. Be sure to check out all my next reviews coming this whole week. The ones I just recently submitted that could use a little love are; Grapes of Death, House of Whipcord, and The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave. You can check out The Abandoned, Room 205, Slaughter, Wicked Little Things, Crazy Eights, The Last House in the Woods, and if anyone hasn’t reviewed Blood the Last Vampire yet I would like to. I just saw the movie and I quite enjoyed it. Vampires and awesome Asian sword fighting are equally wonderful.
