Justin McConnell spoke to HorrorNews only a scant few months ago, and in the meantime, the Toronto based horror maker has continued to move and shake it in a notoriously prickly and fickle industry. He took some time to talk to us yet again about the various developments happening in his always promising career, as well as impart some hard won wisdom about the industry of moving pictures.
Since you last spoke to HorrorNews.net, … Continue reading
Exclusive Horrornews.net Interview:
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
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. The writing of Donna (by brilliant screenwriter, Michael Wallach), was so rich with opportunities to experience the whole gamut of emotions and while Donna is the comedic relief of the film … Continue reading
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
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 Frankâ€™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
â€śThe Hoardâ€ť 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 donâ€™t realize is that intertwined with their drama is a dangerous, … Continue reading
Exclusive HorrorNews.net Interview : Lead Vocalist Giani and Guitarist Teo (Upon This Dawning)
What was the most difficult aspect of making the music video, â€ś A New Beginning â€ś ?
Actually shooting the video was so much fun! We worked with Enrico Tomei who shot the video of “Of Human Action” too and he is a good friend of ours so it’s always nice to work with him! There wasn’t any … Continue reading
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. He was the resident film critic on Canada’s “The John Oakley Show”, he wrote the “Schizoid Cinephile” column for Canadian horror mag “Rue Morgue”, authored “Chris Alexander’s Blood Splattered Book” in 2010, composed & released music … Continue reading
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
I come from the land of the ice and snow, also known as Canada. Despite my home and native landâ€™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 Donnelleyâ€™s, the forced internment of the Japanese during World War Two, the centuries long abuse of Native citizens, forced sterilzations of … Continue reading
I recently sat down with the lovely Heather Langenkamp at the Rock and Shock horror convention in Worcester, MA to discuss her new documentary I Am Nancy, the lasting legacy of A Nightmare on Elm Street, working on The Cabin in the Woods, her upcoming role in the new Star Trek film and more.
We’re here at Rock and Shock in Worcester, Massachusetts. Howâ€™s your weekend going … 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 â€śUnearthly Encounters Live!â€ť on Blog Talk Radio, and an author. Needless to say she is a pretty busy woman these days so I felt very … Continue reading

Congratulations on being the latest Horrornews.net VAMP!
What are some of your earliest memories of monster movies when growing up?
Thank you for having me! I grew up with The Munsters reruns…I’d have to wait until I went to my Grand momâ€™s house to watch it, since my mom didn’t let us watch much TV. She … Continue reading
Recently, I had the opportunity to speak with John Poliquin, the director of the highly entertaining Grave Encounters 2 (currently out on Video on Demand in the States) for the Monster Movie Podcast and HorrorNews.Net.
John spoke about the his background in music video and the influences on making his first feature film. He shared about the film’s spectacular fire gag, the special effects both CGI and practical and teased information about both Lance Preston … Continue reading
Several years ago horror fans started to complain that good horror films werenâ€™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

She has been quite busy during her career and has a very impressive film resume … Continue reading
Michael Rooker â€“Noâ€¦ 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]
If you havenâ€™t heard of Aaron Dries you need to look him up because he is one hell of a writer. He has published one book and has another set for release very soon. He is a very talented guy and I was happy to have the opportunity to speak to him about writing, his favorite horror film, and just some random things in general.
Todd Martin: How long have you been writing, and … Continue reading
