Interview: Mickey Finn (Cold Blue Rebels)

CBR CD cover[1]

Exclusive Horrornews Interview –  Mickey Finn – Cold Blue Rebels 1. How would you explain the sound of Horror-punk-Psycho-Rockabilly? Mickey Finn: Slightly gothic, dark and dramatic, a heavy blend of Punk and Rockabilly, country like Johnny Cash back in the day had a definite dark undertone. And the more creepy punk bands like Misfits, and 45 Grave, opened the door for kids who didn’t quite dig the romantic side of death rock and Goth. The … Continue reading

Interview with Jeff Ross ( director of Resurrection – Rise of the Rabisu ) The new movie, Resurrection, is currently being filmed. Can you give our Horrornews.net fans some idea on what they can expect from this movie? Not being a horror film affection-ado, Iʼm not sure what the brunt of horror fans look for in a film. If, for example, one is a “hard-core” fan, they may be disappointed with the film. Although there … Continue reading

Interview: Jon Dobyns (Twitch the Ripper)

album2

  How did TWITCH THE RIPPER get its name? The name comes from referencing Italian giallo films from the 60’s and 70’s. It’s a bit of a play on few of the tittles that have influenced us artistically. I think it’s safe to assume that if you’re a horror fan you like a good song, and if you a music fan you like a good horror movies. Does TTR have a favorite horror movie? I … Continue reading
