Katie Stewart has been a long time favorite of Monsters From The Basement. She is a very talented actress in my opinion. We featured an interview with her several years back when she was involved with the web series Girl Girl Scene. Since then she has been in several other movies. I was lucky enough to attend the premier of her lastest film this past November. The name of the movie is The Wicked One and it was really good. The next day I got to sit down and chat with Katie about the film.
I always like to kick off the convention season in a big way so we returned to Atlanta, Ga. the weekend of Feb 3-5 for the 6th annual Days Of The Dead Show. This show was is welcomed with open arms each and every year.
Days Of The Dead returned to Chicago in November for a weekend full of horror, rock & roll & good times.
Atlanta, are you ready for Days Of The Dead?
One of the most talked about Horror Conventions return to the Peachtree State for a weekend of infected fun!!
It is with a heavy heart that I have to report the sad news of the passing of Don Calfa. Don appeared in many films over the years including Weekend At Bernie’s, Chopper Chicks In Zombietown and perhaps his most beloved role as Ernie in Return Of The Living Dead.
Don was born in Brooklyn, New York on December 3, 1939. He dropped out of high school to start acting after seeing the film Rebel Without A Cause. He worked in Broadway and Off Broadway productions before setting his sights on a career in films.
He appeared in many dramatic roles over the years but he is perhaps best remembered as a comic actor in many films.
Over the course of his career he worked with such greats as Warren Betty and Jack Nicholson and directors Martin Scorsese and Stephen Spielberg.
I remember seeing Return Of The Living Dead at the theater and it went on to become not only a favorite of mine but for many other horror fans giving it a cult status.
Don was very active on the Horror Convention Circuit with his fellow ROTLD cast members who he remained friends with until his death.
The world has lost a great actor but heaven is a bit brighter today!
Guitarist Bruce Kulick was a guest at the Fanboy Expo Halloween Weekend in Knoxville Tennessee. Bruce was kind enough to sit down and talk with me for a bit about his career. We talked about his guitar heros, what it was like being in Kiss, how he got involved with Grand Funk Railroad and what the future will bring for his fans.
I had an amazing weekend at the first Days Of The Dead Convention in Louisville, Kentucky!! Click on the image to go to my review!!!
