Chris Alexander preps “The Twilight Zone Legacy” for 2014

Twilight-zone

“There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.” Chris Alexander’s THE TWILIGHT ZONE LEGACY … Continue reading

Interview: Dee Wallace

Dee-Wallace-interview-8

It takes a lot to get the Black Saint excited nowadays. I’ve “Been there, done that” ad nauseam over the milllenia and I’ve met plenty of actors/actresses/directors in the horror business. Make no mistake, I love & respect each and every one of them. They have all shown me nothing but love & have indulged me in my desire to toss some silly questions their way. But no one I’ve spoken with has gotten me … Continue reading

Interview: Ian Wolfley – Director (Bug Chaser)

bigchaser-short-film

I saw an amazing short film at last years NYC Horror Film Festival that was called “BUG CHASER”. No, it isn’t the story of a exterminator running around after insects of all sorts. So what is it about then? The term BUG CHASER (As it’s used in this film) refers to “One who is deliberately having unprotected sex in order to be infected with HIV, particularly if his lover has it”. Director Ian Wolfley’s short … Continue reading

The-Rite-movie-2011-1

SYNOPSIS:  An American priest travels to Italy to study at an exorcism school where he is introduced to a mysterious exorcist. REVIEW: So much snow on the ground dear readers.

The_Avengers-banner

I know. I know that it’s been a while since you’ve seen anything new here on HNN from your pal The Black Saint. I hear the cries from the huddled masses…”WHY HAVE YOU SO FORSAKEN US”?
