    When you make a movie about Vikings, you don't go out for a casting call and round up a bunch of unionites with their no-foam lattes, waiting to get suited up in Nordic attire, you blow the biggest horn you can find on the mountainside and see what comes marching! Such as the case with Johan Hegg, the lead singer from the death metal band Amon Amarth - his role of Valli from NORTHMEN - A VIKING SAGA was as authentic as you could have hoped for, and aside from a relatively small part, he still provided fans of these battling savages with enough entertainment to cram inside one film. He was gracious ...

    Ted Geoghegan was born in Oregon, raised in Montana, and studied English at the University of Montana in Missoula, fine-tuning his skill as a screenwriter under the tutelage of the late Carroll O’Connor. From there, he took an unlikely turn: he went from Montana to being one of the few Americans involved in the underground German horror scene.

    In 2000, Geoghegan co-wrote German director Andreas Schnaas’ first English-language film, “Demonium”, and followed it with numerous genre features in Europe and The United States. He founded his own production company in 2007, producing one short film and three features under its banner. ...

    I recently had the opportunity of getting a few minutes with director LazRael Lison, whose latest film, PRIVATE NUMBER, gives new meaning to the term "prank caller." We talked about his love for the genre, the inception of the film, and what he's got on tap for the future, so settle in and enjoy!

    KR - Can you tell us how you got your start in the business?

    LL - I was always a creative junkie, as far back as a child, so transitioning to where I am now is no surprise to anyone back ...

    I recently had the opportunity of grabbing a quick interview with Amy Matysio, who is co-starring in the newest cult-hit, WOLFCOP - she plays Leo Fafard's partner, Tina, a tougher-than-nails deputy who aids her fellow officer after his transformation into the ferocious crimestopper. Matysio, who is no stranger to the industry, gave me the lowdown on a number of topics, so settle in, grab a frosty beverage, and enjoy!

    KR - Can you give us a look back at how you got your start in the business?

    AM - Yeah, I've been at it for a while now - I started straight out of high school - I went to ...

    Nick Damici is an actor and screenwriter known for such films as “Mulberry Street” and “Stake Land”. He grew up in Hell’s Kitchen in the 1960s and early 1970s. His father was a bartender, and Damici would occasionally tend bar at the age of 12. Damici’s mentor is actor Michael Moriarty (who horror fans will know from various Larry Cohen projects), who encouraged him to write scripts.

    I had the pleasure of speaking with Nick in March 2015 about his latest starring role in the werewolf film “Late Phases”, and touched on his life building up to now.

    GS: Apparently, actor Michael Moriarty was your mentor?

    ND: He was one of my first mentors, yeah. When I first started acting… well, let’s ...

    Joel Potrykus is an American film director and screenwriter. Potrykus was born and raised in Alpena, Michigan, then moved to Grand Rapids to study film at Grand Valley State University. A stint as a stand-up comedian in New York City led to the inspiration for his first feature film, “Ape”, which won the Best New Director prize at the 2012 Locarno Film Festival. His second feature film “Buzzard”, starring Joshua Burge as an angry temp worker, made its world premiere at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival, singled out by Janet Pierson as the stand-out in its field.

    I had the distinct pleasure of talking with Joel on March 4, 2015, days before “Buzzard” was to be unleashed upon a wider American audience.

    GS: You’re from Michigan and are currently fighting calls to move to LA. I’m in Wisconsin, so we’re ...

    I recently had the opportunity to nail down an interview with someone whose work I've been addicted to for quite a while: Bill Oberst, Jr. While I've always thought of him as "the man who portrayed 1,000 maniacs," his face (and performances) will forever be etched into the world of indie-filmmaking for years to come. With the insane (no pun intended) response that the Facebook app TAKE THIS LOLLIPOP got from its initial posting, Oberst, Jr managed to parlay it into a successful career as the man who can virtually step into any role that calls for a lunatic, and knock it out of the park. We discussed his beginning in the biz, his immense workload, and exactly what he will NOT DO in a movie role. Read on for a chat that is highly informative, and quite possibly one of the most entertaining ones that I've worked on - ENJOY!


    KR - Can you give us a little insight about ...

    I recently had he opportunity of speaking briefly with Trevor Matthews, who recently just took his initial leap into the directorial pool with the creepy-online stalker film: GIRL HOUSE. Already a man who's worn several hats in the world of films, we talked for a few minutes about his latest movie, his connection with the horror genre, and a couple of other topics - read on and enjoy!


    KR - For the people that might not be too familiar with the movie, can you lay down the premise for GIRL HOUSE?

    TM - Let's see...how can I set this up - beautiful ...

    Joe Lynch may not be well-known to the general population, but fans of the horror genre have followed his work for many years. He started off with Troma under the guidance of Lloyd Kaufman on “Terror Firmer”, where many others (including Tiffany Shepis and James Gunn) got their start.

    Lynch went on to direct “Wrong Turn 2″ and “Knights of Badassdom”, as well as co-starring with Adam Green (“Hatchet”) in “Holliston”. He has become a recognizable face both in front and behind the camera.

    “Everly” is his latest — and possibly greatest — venture yet. He wrote and directed this action film, starring Salma Hayek in what he has referred to as “Die Hard in a room”. There are also plenty of ...

    Recently, I had the opportunity of speaking with Adam Green, the director of hit horror films such as the HATCHET franchise, FROZEN, and the insanely popular HOLLISTON TV show - his latest release: DIGGING UP THE MARROW, will be hitting VOD services on February 20th, with a DVD/BLU-RAY street-date in late-March. His primary focus right now is with the multi-city screening tour he's taking his film to, and I was lucky enough to snag a few minutes with him to discuss a number of topics - read on and enjoy!

    Dee Wallace was pursued by a clan of cannibal killers in Wes Craven’s “The Hills Have Eyes” (1977), terrorized by a pack of werewolves in Joe Dante’s “The Howling” (1981), briefly got a break from horror films as a sympathetic mother in Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi hit “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982), and nearly ends up lunch for a rabid St. Bernard in the heart-stopping “Cujo” (1983).

    And those were just the first few years. With over 200 credits to her name (and counting), fans will recognize her from “Critters”, “The Frighteners”, “Halloween” and countless others. If there was someone who needed no introduction, it would be Dee Wallace.

    She kindly took a few minutes out of her day to chat about her film ...

    The opportunity to interview an actor who you've absolutely idolized over the years doesn't come around too often, and when it does, first: don't come off TOO much as a geek, and second: simply sit back and revel in their words. This chat involves Michael Ironside, and if you don't know who that is, please feel freely to punch yourself squarely in the jawbone! From figmental roles as Darryl Revok in SCANNERS to Jester in TOP GUN, and Richter in TOTAL RECALL (alright, this could go on for a while), he's cornered the market on the tough-guy role, and with his latest film, TURBO KID, playing at the Sundance Film Festival, he was only too happy to ...

    KR - Could you tell us a little about your character, Gaetano, in ZARRA'S LAW?

    BF - Well, my impression of him was one of those situations where pulling it off (playing an Italian-American from New York), which isn't my background. I've been a West Coast boy all my life, so that ...
