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:
Kether Donohue / The Bay

Tell us about your character Donna Thompson in The Bay?

I had the privilege of playing a strong female character whom I have so much admiration and affection for.

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

-Gerner-Brian-Spears-Production-Photo-Season-of-Darkness

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

Interview: Author Alan Ryker (The Hoard)

The-hoard-Alan-Ryker-author-3

“Hoarders, Old-School Vampires, and Zombie Horses”

“The Hoard” is a truly original concept and I think many readers are going to agree. Can you tell us a little bit about the book and how it came to be?

The Hoard is about a stubborn old hoarder who wants to be left in peace, against the wishes of her adult son. What the characters don’t realize is that intertwined with their drama is a dangerous, … Continue reading

Interview: Darryl Shaw (Android Re-Enactment, ABC’s of Death)

Darryl-Shaw-(4)

For those who don’t like horror films (and alas, there are some-what terrible lives they must lead), they oftentimes claim that the genre relies too heavily on base ideas, such as sex and violence.

Whilst there are some filmmakers (you know who you are) who do like to lean too heavily on the crutches of boobs and blood, there are plenty of others who have chosen to take these elements and twist them into … Continue reading

Interview: Ryan Andrews (Sick)

Ryan-Andrews-interview-2

I come from the land of the ice and snow, also known as Canada. Despite my home and native land’s notoriously frightfully frigid temperatures, Canada is not largely known internationally for its ability to conjure scares. Curious, since our history harbours its fair share of moments of blackness (The legend of the Black Donnelley’s, the forced internment of the Japanese during World War Two, the centuries long abuse of Native citizens, forced sterilzations of … Continue reading

Several years ago horror fans started to complain that good horror films weren’t being made anymore. They also argued that the ones that were being released were pretty horrible and unoriginal. Jeffrey reddick came to the rescue and gave the fans Final Destination, which was an instant hit. It was original, fun, and just an awesome movie in general that has spawned a number of sequels that keep moviegoers coming back for more. Jeffrey … Continue reading
