WHAT MAKES JAMES GUNN SLITHER?

What was the inspiration for “SLiTHER”? ^ My inspiration were the in-your-face, fun, over-the-top, gory horror films of the 1980’s. “Re-Animator”, “The Fly”, “The Thing”, “Return of the Living Dead”, “Basketcase”, “Evil Dead 2”. With the exception of a couple terrific filmmakers like Eli Roth and Rob Zombie, horror has become so boring and by-the-numbers […]

THE GEEKS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH: END O’ THE YEAR ROUND UP

Once upon a time, Amy and I got suckered into promoting a convention that was to be called Creepshow ’05. The promoter had worked in the convention game for almost ten years and had connections with some of the giants of the industry: Anne Rice, George Romero, Greg Nicotero, John Carpenter, etc. He was on […]

THE GEEKS SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH: END O’ THE YEAR ROUND UP

STEVEN TSAPELAS AND JOHN TORRANI: BLASPHEMY!

WILL KEENAN: STUNTWORK AND SPIRITUALITY

BEST OF 2005! Will Keenan is perhaps best-known for playing one of the title roles of Troma’s well-thought-of “Tromeo and Juliet”. In that film, he proved he could be both the handsome leading man, and the goofy-looking comedian, depending on what the scene called for…

EXHUMING ALAN ROWE KELLY

Alan Rowe Kelly’s debut film, “I’ll Bury You Tomorrow”, has been lauded by critics and fans alike as a fun, creepy black comedy revolving around a country funeral home, and the sweet, shy necrophiliac who comes to work there. The film stars Kelly himself, as a transvestite make-up artist and pseudo-grave robber…

DR. JEKYLL AND MR. REDFIELD

Mark Redfield can be seen in a horrible movie with my favorite title of all time: “Curse of the Cannibal Confederates”. Having survived “Curse”, Redfield went on to appear in a variety of independent movies and started his own production company, Redfield Arts, to produce a pair of the best indie horror films to come out in the past few years: “Chainsaw Sally” and “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”…

APRIL BURRIL: THE WOMAN WHO IS CHAINSAW SALLY

A few scant years ago, folks who visited the “SilverScream” website, set up to promote JimmyO Burril’s musical tribute to horror films throughout the ages, came face-to-face with a grinning, leering cacophony of color and sexuality named “Chainsaw Sally”. She was an over-the-top diva obsessed with horror movies. Geeks felt at home and fell in love…
