    “Shadows In The Asylum: The Case Files Of Dr. Charles Marsh” (Book Review)

    Author D.A. Stern has a history of pushing some envelopes with his writing. Perhaps his best-known book, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT: A DOSSIER, took an unusual approach to presenting the background of the witch, accounts of the filmmakers’ disappearance, and almost 40 pages of journal. Along the way, the reader absorbs a deeper understanding of all of the disparate elements that made up the movie. Stern employs many of the same ideas to create SHADOWS IN THE ASYLUM: THE CASE FILES OF DR. CHARLES MARSH, and the result is one of the creepiest reads around.

Among her other credits, she also provided the French dub voice for Shelly Duvall’s Olive Oyl in Altman’s POPEYE!

    Shout Factory’s “DIRTY MARY, CRAZY LARRY” and “RACE WITH THE DEVIL” double disc! (Movie Review)

    Many might consider EASY RIDER or THE TRIP to be the infernal inception of the Peter Fonda phenomenon. As an impressionable 9 year old, however, who first encountered Fonda while he was exploding from a 12″ B&W Magnavox screen during the World Television Premiere of DIRTY MARY, CRAZY LARRY and shortly followed up by the incendiary RACE WITH THE DEVIL, the concept of this perfect double bill was already indelibly seared into my young, malleable brain.

    Newborn Dead: Robert Haulbrook, acting and “DEVILING”

    The best actors are those who are willing to let themselves be consumed, physically becoming the role.  When it comes to performance, short films require just as much preparation as others, as it’s essential that the audience believe in the world of the film. The credibility of the character is a fundamental portion of that believable world. While the direction, camera work, lighting, sound and production value are all of major importance, let’s face it: it is the acting that needs to come across as real.
