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.

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 … Continue reading

Interview: Joel D. Wynkoop (Twisted Illusions, The Uh-Oh Show)

Joel-D.-Wynkoop-interview-1

Interview: Patrick Rea – Director (Nailbiter)

Director-Patrick-Rea-Nailbiter-7

Film director Patrick Rea has been operating under the radar for a while now. He has been directing features & shorts exclusively in the state of Kansas where he lives. But with the upcoming release of his latest feature “Nailbiter”, He’s not going to be under the radar much longer! Horrornews has described “Nailbiter” as “An independent gem definitely worth checking out” and I think that’s small praise for what was a really exciting … Continue reading

Interview: Kerri Taylor (Scream Queen)

Exclusive Horrornews.net Interview:
Kerri Taylor

What is your definition of a great Scream Queen?

Scream queens have evolved over the years. They’ve gone from being just the damsel in distress running screaming from the killer, to being much more heroic. They are now the sexy, strong, smart ones who defeat the villain in the end and survive. They are no longer waiting to be rescued by the hero. A great scream … Continue reading

Exclusive HorrorNews.net Interview:
Alejo Mo-Sun Writer/Director of Hirokin

What inspired you to write the story of Hirokin?

I’ve always been passionate about Sci-Fi and stories concerning that involve having the courage to make a difference. To risk selfish wants to help serve. All artists feel the “call” to action. We feel that there’s a story in us that we must tell. So, in many ways artists don’t choose to write. They … Continue reading

Exclusive HorrorNews.net Interview:
Jay Woelfel (Season of Darkness)

Where did the concept for Season of Darkness come from?

I saw the film THE BOSTON STRANGLER, which I still think is among the best serial killer films ever made. Then I read Gerald Frank’s book that it was based on and at one point Albert De Salvo/ The Strangler reads or hears about THE BIRDMAN OF ALCATRAZ and decides … Continue reading
