The last couple of years have led to the popularity of crowd funding hitting an all time high and it’s become a bit of the go to method for many film projects. Back in 2012, director Sean Cain attempted this method with his thriller Breath Of Hate in order to lock in a theatrical and Bluray/DVD release as the film was already finished. Distributors were weary on releasing the film as its genre offering was unclear as the plot liked to take a dip into various themes and was difficult to sell. Unfortunately, the Kickstarter funding was unsuccessful and the movie was placed on hold. Three years later, via Wild Eye Releasing, Cain is finally able to release his film under a new title, The Last House. After watching it, it’s easy to see why the film had a difficult time getting released. It’s not a bad movie, »

[Originally appeared in the January 2015 issue of Deadly Magazine. Catch up with Part One of the retrospective here.]
Though it was prematurely cancelled in 2012, the horror comedy TV series Todd & The Book of Pure Evil has lived on through the memories of its loyal fan base, been discovered by a new audience on home media, and will return in an animated film in the near future. Last fall, I had the great pleasure of speaking with the series' co-creators and main cast, who looked back on fighting evil... with mixed results.
In this second part of Daily Dead's retrospective on Todd & The Book of Pure Evil, Alex House (Todd Smith), Maggie Castle (Jenny Kolinsky), Bill Turnbull (Curtis Weaver), Melanie Leishman (Hannah B. Williams), Shawn Pierce (music composer), and series co-creator Craig David Wallace discuss their time on the truly unique series that showed the humor, horror, and often blood-soaked trials and tribulations of high school.

Over the weekend at New York Comic Con, writer and director Kevin Smith moderated a panel for the upcoming Ash vs. The Evil Dead, which showed its first episode to much praise. But while hosting the event, Smith took it upon himself to promote his next venture, and ask a favour of Bruce Campbell.
“At the end of the panel, I saw my moment and I took it.” Smith told the audience at the recording of his Hollywood Babble On podcast. “I’m gonna do it in front of everyone, the best time to ask somebody is to publicly shame them. So I said, ‘Bruce, in January we make a movie called Mallrats 2 – will you be in it?’ And he goes, ‘yes’. So he’s in it.”

Secret Wars #6

Published by Marvel Comics
After an almost two month setback, Secret Wars is back with issue 6 (of 9 now). This newest issue of Marvel’s biggest event (ever!) is a mixed bag with some intriguing moments, but little explanation or exploration of the pieces being moved across the chess board. The long wait between issues certainly didn’t help, but the newest issue reads as if there was a chapter missing between issues five and six. Readers finally see what happened to the heroes scattered after issue four, however, most readers will scratch their heads wondering how they got into their respective circumstance—Especially Ms. Marvel as there is absolutely no context given for her situation.
The biggest problem plaguing the sixth issue of Secret Wars is the assumptions that it places on readers. Readers are simply »

There was a time in the late 70s, at the height of the musicals comeback, when Hollywood went knocking on many a musicians door in an attempt to find the next big thing in the genre. Of course being one of the biggest bands on the planet in the 70s, that meant producers tapped Kiss for movie stardom. After all, Kiss were already known for extraordinary over-the-top stage shows and had their own Marvel Comic where they were not just rock gods but superheroes!

[Originally appeared in the January 2015 issue of Deadly Magazine] Think back to your worst memory of high school. If it doesn’t involve a giant bone-crushing baby, rock and roll zombies, or a Satanic guidance counselor, then you didn’t go to Crowley High, the setting for the beloved TV series Todd & The Book of Pure Evil.
Comprised of two seasons that originally aired from 2010–2012 on Canada’s Space network, Todd & The Book of Pure Evil follows Todd Smith, a heavy metal-loving high school stoner who, along with his best friend Curtis, major crush (and strongly independent) Jenny, and the brilliant Hannah, is forced to face the monsters and evil powers unleashed by The Book of Pure Evil.
The twisted tome (believed to be bound in the foreskin of Judas) can be found by the tormented, the humiliated, and the depressed—making high school its perfect home. For 26 episodes, Todd and his friends (collectively known as “the Gang”) hunt »

With the final part of Kevin Smith’s True North Trilogy set to go into production soon with Moose Jaws, longtime fans of the director’s work were pleased to hear that Jay and Silent Bob would be making their return to the big screen. However, we may have some bad news.
“I just finished writing the scene where — spoilers — Silent Bob gets eaten by the moose,” he told news.com.au. “That’s how he fucking goes out!”
“Isn’t that fun? I was talking to Jay about Moose Jaws and I’m like, ‘I’m thinking about bringing us in as the Captain Quint character’,” Smith continued. “And he goes, ‘Yeah, but Quint gets killed!’ I was like, ‘One of us has to get eaten’. And he was like, ‘You. Not me’. I was like, ‘Why?’ And he was like, ‘Because I wanna be in other movies!’ Fair enough, »
