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!

Check out January’s Babe From The Basement Shannon Stockin AKA Michelle Macabre


photo (18)

January’s Babe From The Basement is model Shannon Stockin AKA Michelle Macabre.  Shannon is from South Carolina and enjoys cos-playing at horror conventions.  She attended her first horror a couple years ago and was hooked.  She created her “alter-ego” Michelle Macabre as her cos-play character.  Shannon is from South Carolina and currently lives in Tennessee.  When I contacted her about being featured on this website I also asked her if I sent her a MFTB t-shirt could she have some pictures made in it.  She agreed.  I sent her the shirt and she got with her photographer and made a few pictures just for us.  You can find her on Facebook under both names.  Watch your back at the next convention you attend.  Michelle might be stalking you!!!

Audio Interview With Kristina Klebe Posted


Horror fans know Kristina Klebe best from Rob Zombie’s remake of the classic film “Halloween” but she has done a lot more than that.  She recently directed her very first short film called “As Human As Animal” with Diamond Dallas Page as well as a commercial for Henley E Cigarettes.  Kristina was a guest at the recent Days Of The Dead Convention and was nice enough to sit down with me and talk for a while.  While we were chatting, cinematographer Will Barratt  walked by and joined in on our talk.

Audio Interview With John Kassir Posted


Who can forget the HBO series “Tales From The Crypt” and the host of the show The Crypt Keeper?  The one thing about the show that stood out was his voice.  The voice of The Crypt Keeper was supplied by John Kissar.  John was a guest at last years Days Of The Dead Convention.  He was nice enough to take a few minutes out of his Sunday morning to sit down and talk with me.  We talked about his carreer from Star Search all the way up to his part in the new film “Jack The Giant Slayer”.  I really enjoyed doing this interview and I hope you will enjoy it as well!

Days Of The Dead Atlanta 2012 Review Posted


My son, Julian and I had the pleasure of attending the second Days Of The Dead Convention in Atlanta Ga last weekend.  Julian was really excited about meeting Kane Hodder and it was good to see him excited about going to a con that wasn’t anime  related.  Now, the first Days Of The Dead was in the Peachtree City area of Atlanta.  This years hotel was in the heart of downtown Atlanta.  It is one of the hosts hotels for Dragon Con so I was glad it was right off the interstate and we had been in the area before as well.
