    Q&A: Director, Producer on in-progress “HELLRAISER” Doc, “LEVIATHAN”

    There’s one person you have to thank for the continued longevity of all your favorite franchises. No, this person doesn’t reside within the impenetrable fortress of Hollywood. This person is you.  The horror fan.  Give yourself a well- deserved pat on the back.  You’ve earned it. The demand of horror fandom has kept legendary franchises alive with sequels, prequels, remakes and reboots – albeit much to the chagrin of your average Joe Cineplex goer. Now, in what may very well be the ultimate demonstration of loving commitment yet, is the current trend of exhaustive fan made documentaries that draw accounts from everyone to the iconic stars to the hardworking crew that helped make it all happen.  Following suit after stellar labour of love retrospectives NEVER SLEEP AGAIN and CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES is LEVIATHAN: THE STORY OF HELLRAISER ANG HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II from Viper Fulms and Cult Screenings.

    Q&A: New Zealand’s David Blyth Talks “GHOST BRIDE”

    New Zealand-based director David Blyth (WOUND) is well known for making grisly, uncompromising horror features that turn stomachs and bend minds. But his latest is a radical departure. Out last month from Midnight Releasing, GHOST BRIDE (written and directed by Blyth) is a meditative, sensual and romantic ghost story telling the tale of a Chinese immigrant named Michael who falls into an arranged marriage with a long dead woman named May Ling. When Michael’s true love tries to steal him back, May Ling quickly proves that old adage, ‘Hell hath no fury like a dead woman scorned’.

    Q&A: Actor DJ Qualls on Being Witness to a “Z NATION”

    In Syfy’s series Z NATION, the dead do not walk; instead, they run at top speed. Babies get bitten, turn and kill people who have appeared to be series regulars up to that point. Survivors are hard cases, able to blow gaping holes in skulls with guns and using spiked metal sticks when ammo isn’t handy. If ever a narrative TV show was made for FANGORIA, Z NATION is it.
