Shadow To Shadow : Dean Madonia’s Frankenstein


Dean Madonia is a singer/song writer who lives in Nashville. Dean recently released a cd called Shadow To Shadow: Dean Madonia’s Frankenstein.  The story is told from the Monster’s point of view, in the present time,  as he tries to warn others about the dangers of human cloning.  Dean wrote the music, sing and plays on the cd and even did the paintings that are featured on the cd.  The song entwine into a rock opera like Tommy or The Wall.  I had the pleasure to sitting down and talking to Dean and his guitar player Val Lupescu this past weekend.  We talked about his music background, past and present and of course Shadow To Shadow.

Be sure to check the cd out at CD Baby, Amazon or iTunes

RIP Marilyn Burns

I am at a lose for worlds right now. Marilyn Burns who appeared in the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre passed away in her sleep last night.  The horror world has lost a true icon.  I interviewed her a couple years ago and had the best time talking with her.  Thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends and fans.

Nancy Allen Interview Posted


Nancy Allen’s first major acting role was that of Chris in the Stephen King film “Carrie”.  She also starred in “Robocop” and “Blow Out”. She was a guest at recent Days Of The Dead Convention in Indiana.  I had arranged for an interview with her but  things were so busy I didn’t think I was going to be able to do it.  We were finally able to do it while she was waiting for her ride to the airport Sunday afternoon.  She was a lot of fun and pleasure to interview. I hope you enjoy my interview with Nancy Allen!

RIP Magoo Gelehrter AKA “Garou”


As many of my horror friends know I have always been a big fan of horror hosts. It is with a heavy heart that I say we lost a great part of the horror host world today. Magoo Gelehrter husband of Danielle S. Oliveira Gelehrter and part of the wonderful show Penny Dreadful’s Shilling Shockers lost his battle with cancer today. I interviewed Penny over the phone for Monsters From The Basement and met them both at Monster Bash a couple of years ago. They both brought so much joy to so many, young and old alike. The thing I remember the most about him was the look in his eyes when he was in his Garou Wolfman at Monster Bash. You could truly see that he loved what he was doing. RIP Garou. You will be missed!
