Film Review: The ToolBox Murders (1978)

TOOLBOX1

SYNOPSIS: Bit by bit, he carved a nightmare! In a quiet Los Angeles apartment complex, a deranged handyman savagely murders “immoral” women with the tools of his trade: clawhammers, screwdrivers, power drills and even a deadly nail gun.

Interview: Cory Cataldo (Mad World)

ccpic

1. I know personally for me, when I watch movies that deal with these types of teen topics, it brings back feelings of when I was a teen. Did you take any personal experiences from when you were a teen and incorporate it into the story? I did. To an extent, except the end, everything in this movie actually happened. I over dramatized it because I only had an hour and a half to tell … Continue reading

Interview: Tiffany Shepis (The Frankenstein Syndrome)

SS2

What attracted you to The Frankenstein Syndrome? What attracted me to TFS?? There were many things that made me want to be involved with The Frankenstein Syndrome.

Unexplained Confidential : Dead and Punked

chaneyuse12

It’s me again,  I’m hunched over the keyboard turning pale and convulsing as I suffocate on my own blood.   My fingers are barely able to hit the keys to type these poisonous theories.  “Joyhorror” is the name that I hear from the underbelly of horror’s anti-social living dead community.  I answer with a resounding thud as my lifeless head bounces off the desk.   I’m listening to your death rattle.   Unexplained Confidential has a crossover audience … Continue reading

Interview: Natalie Dickinson (She’s Crushed)

crushed2

What was your attraction to She’s Crushed? I’ve always loved horror/thriller movies, and this one had a smart, interesting story. I loved how the writer (and director, Patrick Johnson) took a different approach – the audience sees the story unfold largely from Tara’s perspective. So, as an actor, this was very attractive… It was fun to give the psycho chick some backstory and vulnerability – even in the midst of all the craziness. Aside from … Continue reading
