The ’90s was an interesting decade to say the least. Growing up, nothing was better to me, than sitting down to watch either a horror film or one of my favorite HBO programs, whether it be Tales From The Crypt or The Kids In The Hall, most of my nights were spent eating McDonald’s and being stuck to the TV. Once in a great while, HBO would premiere films exclusively on their channel, and sometimes those films would be just what I was looking for. Whether it be 1991′s Lovecraftian, Phillip Marlow meets Black Magic type of film Cast A Deadly Spell, or the subject of this A Look Back At article, the 1993 Werewolf Cop film Full Eclipse, HBO really did a hell of a job offering some fun programming.

Coates (Lawrence of Arabia). A career in the film industry seemed destined, even if his start would require a lot of persistence and a lot of luck.
His debut film Waxwork almost didn’t see the light of day. Hickox met the producer, Staffan Ahrenherg when he crashed his car into the back of Ahrenberg’s. With barely a penny to his name, Hickox managed to persuade Ahrenberg to let him pay for the damage by letting him write a script for him on the cheap. Ahrenberg agreed, and Waxwork was written by Hickox in three days. The script was rejected from almost every studio, »
