Trailer for indie creature-feature Maneater

21 December 2009 10:04 AM, PST | | See recent QuietEarth news »

The first trailer dropped for Michael Emanuel's spiritual creature-feature based on the Algonquian Wendigo myth and I'm still trying to figure out if it'll be worth tracking down when it finally arrives. It looks like it's well made and full of some decent creature scares, but the way the promo's cobbled together just isn't doing it any favors.


A former FBI profiler, now a sheriff of a small town and a single parent of a high school aged daughter, begins to profile a series of unexplained murders only to learn that the monster he's profiling may be himself.

Maneater stars a decent cast in Dean Cain, Conrad Janis ("The Cable Guy"), Stephen Lunsford, Walter Phelan ("House of 1000 Corpses"), Maximillian Roeg and Lacy Phillips ("Pushing Twilight").

Bad Blood screening in La

18 February 2009 9:38 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

Veteran actor Conrad Janis, best known as Mindy’s dad on the sitcom Mork & Mindy, has sent Fango word on a free screening of his new horror film Bad Blood…The Hunger this weekend in Los Angeles. The movie will unspool Saturday, February 21 at 6:45 p.m. at the Fine Arts Theater (8556 Wilshire Boulevard).

The film is showing courtesy of the Beverly Hills Hi-Def Film Festival, where it won second place last month. Bad Blood stars director Janis alongside Academy Award-nominated actress and Carrie star Piper Laurie as an old couple who take in a group of vacationing youths after their truck is driven off the road. Their hospitality is just a cover, however, as they are the leaders of a sinister cultlike group and the teens find themselves in serious danger. The story is apparently inspired by true events that happened to writer Maria Janis (who also has a »

dream cast: hypothetical ‘Mork & Mindy’ movie

22 January 2009 4:24 PM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Shazbot, I’m late this week. But it’s still Thursday, so there’s still time to remake an 80s classic TV show or movie with an all-new cast. This week: Mork & Mindy, the 1978-82 ABC sitcom about the doofiest alien in the universe and the human girl who lets him sleep on her sofa. The original cast included: Mork: Robin Williams Mindy: Pam Dawber Orson (voice): Ralph James Fred (Mindy’s dad): Conrad Janis Eugene (the kid who hung around the record store): Jeffrey Jacquet Mr. Bickley (the pain-in-the-ass neighbor): Tom Poston the baby: Jonathan Winters Exidor (who was either mentally ill or a visionary prophet, or perhaps both): Robert Donner Mindy’s father was always pissed off that his innocent and virginal little princess was living with a man, which is so dated that it’s laughable, so we can excise that subplot. »
