Interview: Chris Alexander (Blood For Irina, Fangoria)

Chris-Alexander-1

That’s right…it says Director up there in the title. Although he’s perhaps better known as the current editor in chief of FANGORIA magazine Chris Alexander has dipped his toes in all sorts of different media over the years.

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

I have always been pretty interested in the paranormal, and since there are so many fans of shows like Ghost Hunters, Haunted Collector, and many others it is obvious that I am not alone. Mackenzie Knight is a paranormal researcher/investigator, host of her own celebrity paranormal radio show called “Unearthly Encounters Live!” on Blog Talk Radio, and an author. Needless to say she is a pretty busy woman these days so I felt very … Continue reading

jeff_reddick-final-destination-1-448x196

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

Michael-Rooker-Walking-Dead-3

Janel: THE WALKING DEAD is one of the best shows on television; did you think the show would become as successful as it is?

Michael Rooker –No… no way. I’m glad it did, of course, but I had no idea Middle America would be so willing to accept zombie heads exploding on their television sets! It makes me very happy because I’ve been ready for something like this for a very long time! [laughs]

Interview: David Anders (The Revenant)

2009

He has been a part of some of televisions’ most talked about genre series including “Alias”, “Heroes”, “The Vampire Diaries”, and now “Once Upon a Time”. He is also rather well known for his strong British accent. His replication of the accent is flawless and you would never know that he was born and raised in Oregon. David recently … Continue reading

Interview: Madelina Horn (The Profane Exhibit)

Madelina-Horn-Profane-Exhibit-4

What do you think the relationship is between sex and horror?

MH: They both play on the same idea of taboos + boundary pushing. They both attract the same kind of curiosity from the hearts of humanity. Since society is still largely based on religious moral standards, we see both sex + violence as taboo + wrong, yet are instinctively drawn to them, thus getting a rush from seeking out such naughtiness. Both sexuality … Continue reading
