Interview: Ben Rock – Director (Alien Raiders)

alien_raiders1

MJ: Here are a few questions from HorrorNews.net I’m going to start off with a personal question before I dive into questions about “Alien Raiders” . Do you believe in alien life?

BR: I’m glad you asked that, and you’re the first ever to do so. I guess the answer is that I would LOVE to believe in alien life. Before “The X Files” was on the air, I was a voracious … Continue reading

Interview: Steven C. Miner – Director

_interviews_Steven_C_Miller_clip_image001

Steven C. Miller emerged onto the Hollywood movie making scene a few years ago with Automaton Transfusion, a movie in which he wrote, edited and directed. AT premiered at the Screamfest L.A. horror festival and the ever so popular Weinstein brothers purchased the movie and distributed it. To me this is one of the best zombie movies made and with a budget of less than $30,000 and ever so close on the horizon are two … Continue reading

Interview: Shannon Lark (Psychic Experiment, Devotion)

_interviews_Shannon_Lark_clip_image002

The Scream Queen is the pulsating erogenous zone within the flesh of cinematic horror. Such a living epitaph is a conglomeration of physical beauty, seasoned survival instincts, and latent weaponry prowess fused into a strong visual feminine protagonist.

Brandishing the blood carven inscription as “San Francisco’s Gore Gore Girl”, Shannon Lark was destined to become the quintessential avatar of the Scream Queen. The crystallization of Shannon’s kinship with blood, death, and horror achieved its … Continue reading

Interview: Anthony Masi (His Name is Jason)

Masi_7

Anthony Masi is your average Gen-X fright fan who was there in the theaters of the eighties when profit-turning horror franchises featuring Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers, Leatherface, Pinhead and of course, Jason Voorhees were raking in duckets by the month, much less the entire decade collectively. 

What is not average about Masi is the access he’s had to the players and creators of these standout vehicles as producer of expository documentaries such … Continue reading

Wynkoop_7

MJ : What is your earliest childhood memory of horror and first being interested in horror?

JDW: I think when my Dad let me stay up to watch HORROR INC. I watched Dracula and I think I was hooked after that. Then later, some truck driver gave me a copy of Famous Monsters and then I was really into monsters and the like. My neighbor and I watched The SHUTTERED ROOM and GREEN SLIME. … Continue reading

VICTORMILLER_2

Victor Miller is the screenwriter behind the original “Friday the 13th” a classic of the 80’s slasher genre. I was fortunate enough to sit down with Mr. Miller in his home here in Alameda, Ca and speak with him about how he got involved with “Friday” and what kind of effect it’s had on his life.

Interview: Marcus Nispel – Director

marcus_nispel

Although he’s only 45, Marcus Nispel has been making TV commercials and music videos for 20 years, as he says, “to pay the bills.” But, obviously, Nispel’s heart has been to make feature films. He burst onto the scene with a revised Texas Chainsaw Massacre, starring Jessica Biel, in 2003. That version of the often-filmed tale in sequels and remakes stood out due to Nispel’s infusion of harsh reality using a washed-out stylized palette of colors … Continue reading

Ryan_Cavalline_1

Heya Ryan and thank you for joining us!

Interview: Stevan Mena (Brutal Massacre, Malevolence)

StevanMena_1

The art of mingling horror and comedy together is more subtle than one might think, despite the slapstick ease of say, Evil Dead II or even Lou Costello and Bud Abbott shambling against a Universal goon squad. Some horror films are inherently dark and serious, though yielding bursts of perfectly-timed humor, as An American Werewolf in London did with glorious pastiche.

Brutal Massacre, in case you’re late to the show, is both a subtle and … Continue reading

Alphabet_Killer_6

MJ : How and why did you decide to write The Alphabet Killer?

TM : My wife, Emily, was from Rochester and said there’s a great unsolved case you should check out. It’s a true story based in Rochester where three girls from 10 to 12 were killed over a two year period and the killer was never caught. Over 800 suspects were interviewed. It remains an unsolved mystery to this day. I said, man, … Continue reading

Jason_Robert_Stephens

How much research did you have to do about the Donner Party & Cannibalism before starting on this project? I hope the research wasn’t too detailed. gulp.
