    An Actor’s Best Friend, Debbie Rochon remembers canine co-star Valkrie

    Beloved genre veteran and longtime Fango friend/contributor Debbie Rochon just recently lost a dear friend and co-star. Here, she pays tribute to Valkrie Athena Liquori, a dog like no other. 

    Movie star canines have featured prominently in some of my personal fave cult and horror movies. Named simply ‘Dog’, THE ROAD WARRIOR featured man’s best friend as the last trustworthy companion Max had left in this world. As it turns out, he was right. The dog was played by an adopted shelter pup and trained to perform in the film. Because the sound of the engines upset him—and in one incident, caused him to relieve himself in the car—he was fitted with special earplugs. His breed was a Blue Heeler, sometimes also referred to as an Australian Cattle Dog. ‘Dog’ went to live with Dale and Max Aspin after the movie wrapped. Max was the stunt coordinator for the film, and his wife Dale was the animal handler and trainer, as well as being a stunt performer herself.

    “100 BLOODY ACRES” (Movie Review)

    100 BLOODY ACRES isn’t a straight horror film, despite what the title may lead you to believe. It is, however, a delightful and decidedly Australian comedy in which the characters find themselves in a rather horrific situation, with the resulting shenanigans strewn with bursts of fun gore.

    A “THE CABIN IN THE WOODS” maze will be at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando!

    If ever a film warranted a maze at the annual, highly praised haunts that take place at Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood, THE CABIN IN THE WOODS just might be it.

    Drew Goddard and Josss Whedon’s brilliant tribute to horror stories and why we tell them begins simply enough, with five friends taking a weekend jaunt at the titular locale. As you should know by now however, nothing is as it seems and The Cabin is part of a multi-level structure that houses every nightmare imaginable. The possibilities are endless and it seems the folks behind Halloween Horror Nights Orlando have recognized as such.

    Speaking to Zap2It, director Drew Goddard revealed he is heavily involved the crafting of the very special maze. He explains, “We are building the cabin completely. You’re going to walk through a forest to get there. You’re going into the cabin. You’re going to go into the cube cells. We’re literally taking everything we can in the film and giving you a kind of best-of montage of the film with this kind of linking story. You’re going to be in the control room when merman attacks.”

    The little narrative of the walkthrough will find you as a new member of the facility that controls the cabin, places bets on the victims and ultimately serves a higher, darker power. An introduction will explain the film’s mythology and purpose of the sacrifices, and then you’ll experience the events of the film from a different perspective.

    Experiencing the events, of course, means as many monsters as possible including original creatures from Halloween Horror Nights past. “In the maze, we’ve got many that were in the forefront of a lot of the scenes — the ballerina, the Sugarplum Fairy, the Hell Lord — but also too there are a couple rooms where we’re kind of featuring some of the creatures that were just on the screens in the control room of movie,” says Orlando’s Michael Aiello. “And then in the finale we’ve got a couple characters that could open up from Halloweens past, our own events, because we were granted amazing permission to be able to include some of our lineage into ‘Cabin’s’ lineage.”

    Goddard adds, “Our finale for the maze is something that we want guests to be surrounded by. There are so many amazing characters in the movie, we really wanted to end it with trying to surround the guests with as many guests as possible.”
