Interview: Victor Miller (Friday the 13th)

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.

How did you get involved with Friday the 13th?

Friday the 13th was an absolute mistake of nature. … Continue reading

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

Heya Ryan and thank you for joining us!

– Thanks for having me.

Tell us how you got your start in making films?

– I’ve always been making movies since I was a kid. I spent a lot of time making up stories. I didn’t have any video equipment when I was younger so, I would draw a lot of comic books. Most of them being horror related comic books. When I hit high school, my … Continue reading

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

It remains an unsolved mystery to this day. I said, man, … Continue reading

Greetings my naughty little fiends! Today we discuss a subject close to my nocturnally maladjusted heart; a dead girl, or more correctly Dead Girl.

Interview: Doug Sakmann – Director (Evilhead, The XXXorcist, Re-Penetrator)

Sakmann_12

MJ : HOW CLOSE DOES “EVIL HEAD” FOLLOW THE STORYLINE OF THE EVIL DEAD?

DS : ‘Evil Head’ pays homage to the Evil Dead series, in particular Evil Dead 1 & 2. I am a huge fan of Sam Raimi’s work with the series, and
while ‘Evil Head’ is a parody of sorts I definitely consider it a tribute to the original films. You’ll see familiar things from Evil Dead 1 & 2 but there will also be a … Continue reading
