    Q&A: Joe Dante Talks “BURYING THE EX” – Part Two

    Yesterday, we ran an interview with maverick monster movie legend Joe Dante (GREMLINS, THE HOWLING, THE BURBS) conducted while on set filming his latest twisted horror/comedy BURYING THE EX, a new zombie romance  starring Anton  Yelchin (ODD THOMAS) and Ashley Greene (TWILIGHT) in a tale of a lad who can’t get enough of his livid, living dead ex-lady love. Today, as the film premieres at the 71st Venice International Film Festival, we follow-up with the filmmaker in a new interview conducted just days ago, wherein Dante reflects on what the movie became after post-production.

    “TWIN PEAKS: THE ENTIRE MYSTERY” (Blu-ray Review)

    When CBS and Paramount Pictures teamed to bring TWIN PEAKS: THE ENTIRE MYSTERY to Blu-ray this summer, there was no question as to whether or not this would be the definitive home release of the series and prequel film, FIRE WALK WITH ME.
