Interview: Dr. Gangrene – Horror Host

Gangrene-01

Extra! Extra! Tingler Loose in Louisville!

Horror Hosts are as well-loved these days as the monsters they present on television. Zacherley, the Cool Ghoul is my personal favorite but they do abound. One such character presents himself as Dr. Gangrene and runs amok periodically when he gets loose from the TV studio.

The actor who gives the good Doctor voice is a native of Nashville, TN. I tracked him down on the … Continue reading

Interview: Brian O’Toole – Writer/Producer (Basement Jack, Evilution, The Necropolitan)

Brian-Otoole-1

MIKE JOY : Evilution has a great tag line, “The End is Here!” It’s short and to the point. I’m a big fan of tag lines as strange as that sounds. I think every great movie needs a great tag line. Alien, I think had one of the best tags of all time, “In space, no one can hear you scream”. Just curious, what’s your opinion of tag lines?

BRIAN O’TOOLE : I agree with … Continue reading

Never seems to equal a dead hooker! I know, maybe that dude in the wheelchair with the … Continue reading

Lee_Vervoort_image5

What can our HorrorNews fans expect from Gun Town ?

Fans can expect a new approach in horror with a western theme involved, along with a picture in high-definition.

Why did you decide to go with the combination of horror/western?

My friends who own the western town have dreamed of making a movie there for years, so it seemed the way to go. Plus it gave us the different approach to the horror genre.
