It’s Halloween - the perfect time to enjoy cult flick Trick ‘R Treat. The anthology film is tied together by the appearance of Sam, a mysterious little trick-or-treater who embodies the spirit of Halloween and kills anyone who breaks the rules of Halloween. We spoke to Quinn Lord, the kid who played Sam, about how a child handles such a tough role.
Makeup maestro Rick Baker did something a little different for Halloween this year: he created a collection for MAC Cosmetics, along with three unique looks using the products. We've been following this collection since it was first announced, and watched eagerly when MAC released demo videos with Baker. Now we spoke to the man himself, who told us about the pros and cons of doing monster makeup with a mainstream company and how he chose his looks. Bonus: check out the amusing Maleficent anecdote at the end.
Director Stuart Gordon has worked with actor Jeffrey Combs since his first feature film, Re-Animator, in 1985. Since then, they have worked on nearly a dozen projects, many of them adaptations of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe stories. Their newest collaboration isn’t all that new: Nevermore. Based on the personal letters and journals of Poe, “Nevermore” started as a one-man stage play, directed by Gordon and starring Combs as Poe. Three years later, the pair want to turn the play into a film. We spoke with Stuart Gordon about his plans for the film adaptation.
Director, writer, producer, and actor Larry Fessenden has slogged his way to becoming a prominent force in the horror genre over the course of more than two decades. His first film to really start turning heads was the provocative thriller No Telling (1991). He secured his place on the horror film map by writing, directing, and starring in the gritty vampire nightmare Habit (1995), which was followed by Wendigo (2001) and The Last Winter (2006).
Now, in time for Halloween 2013, Legendary Pictures is hosting a special screening of Trick ‘R Treat in Los Angeles, followed by a Q&A with director Michael Dougherty and cast members. We got to Dougherty first and asked him about the screening, directing a cult classic, and possible sequels.
For the lack of better words, it's been a labor of love for the past few years for filmmakers Brian Netto and Adam Schindler as they prepare to deliver their debut their horror thriller into the world.
Actor Brad Dourif has provided Chucky’s voice since Child’s Play and continues those vocal duties on Curse of Chucky. During a set visit, Dourif specifically came in to speak about articulating Chucky’s latest instalment and the horror icon’s staying power.
The Walking Dead kicked off its fourth season with a new wrinkle: an illness that has killed at least one in the prison population in a very, very short amount of time. And you know what death means in this world: instant transformation into a zombie. I recently spoke with Vincent Martella, whose character Patrick - new to the show this season - is Patient Zero. When last we saw Patrick, he dropped dead in the shower in the middle of the night - then awoke almost immediately, zombified. We spoke about what kind of havoc Walker Patrick might bring upon the survivors.
Not many potential victims have faced Chucky and survived. Nica, played by Fiona Dourif, could be one of them. Check out our interview with the "Curse of Chucky" star, whose horror credentials also include a role on "True Blood."
It was with great admiration - and some trepidation (because I knew his English wasn’t very good and I failed out of college Italian) - that I set about to interview Argento for his newest film, Dracula 3D. Despite the language barrier, I got some interesting info from one of my idols - and bragging rights for the rest of my life.
