During the last month of the outgoing year and sometimes stretching into the first week of the New Year, people like me – who talk about movies – usually post lists of what they thought were their favorite movies or least favorite movies or what they are looking forward to in the next year. Generally, these take the form of a “Top 10” list. I thought about doing one but then came to the realization: I only watched ten movies for all of last year – at least for reviewing purposes. Instead, I’ve decided to list those movies with some of my own meandering thoughts on each.
Stepping up to the platform today is one of the nicest people I’ve never met: writer, director, cinematographer – you name it. She’s an award winning filmmaker and the newly minted Director of Operations for the Viscera Organization: Lori Bowen.
Day Two or our series, “What do horror fans want?” and I dig into my grab bag of internet cronies to let Mr. Rocco Previtali drop some bombs on the horror world.
A fine Halloween tradition returns as once again I pick the brains of horror fans, media and assorted genre professionals as I ask that immortal question: what do horror fans want? Kicking things off, we welcome the Horror Man, Sam Santiago, the Editor in Chief of Truly Disturbing.com.
If you’ve been a regular visitor for the last year or so, maybe you’ve noticed that content here has thinned out a little. Ordinarily, I’d just chalk that up to my own laziness and I think for a good portion of this time, I have. I think the reality of what was going on hit me this past weekend during the Blood Bath 3 film festival. It all started with an innocuous enough statement from my friend Tammy Dupal of Twisted Central fame. She tweeted:
Because of the obvious conflict of interest I will not be reviewing any films played during @doabloodbath.
We’re still having withdrawals from Texas Frightmare Weekend over here. However, it’s not all just aching feet and empty bank accounts – there are a few good things lingering over as well. One of them is an honest to goodness face to face acquaintance with someone who, until then, was just a collection of pixels on my Twitter feed. This week, we welcome to the bloody pulpit Scott Shoyer of Anything Horror.com.
This week’s edition of “What Do Horror Fans Want?” we finally give an unbridled rein to one of our new additions here around the TerrorScribe grotto, Auntie Maim.
After surviving this week’s winterpocalypse we kick off this year’s “What Do Horror Fans Want?” with writer/photographer/ actress Amanda Reboholz of Horrorphile Entertainment.
“Hollywood needs to burn”, I believe that’s how it was put to me by a very good friend the other night. I completely agree and think we should start the blaze by using some of the latest horror film scripts!
Our conversation started like it usually does, discussing the latest news regarding forthcoming horror movies and inevitably coming round to the “why do they insist on re-making classics”, which then naturally lead us to the debate of “if they’re going to re-make a classic, why must they screw with the original story”? That’s when I mounted out my little soap box and refused to come down for the following quarter hour.
Back once again, fat and full of turkey, we’ve got this week’s installment of “What Do Horror Fans Want?” This time we present, the man, the myth, the legend in his own pants: Bojangles of Horror Trailer.com and Talk Horror.com
