Christian Sesma is a fellow Coachella Valley resident and it.s heartwarming that the accomplished director always gives back to the community every time he.s making a new movie. Sesma.s new flick, .The Night Crew,. is being shot in the valley, and not only did he hire his desert crew, he also partnered with a non-profit organization to help with some aspects of the movie.s production design.
I sat down with the director before for his .Shoot the Hero,. and now, I officially visited his set to talk about .The Night Crew. and its community involvement. The film, co-written by Paul Sloan (who also stars in the film) and Sesma, stars Danny Trejo (.Machete. movies), Jason Mewes (.Clerks. movies, .Shoot the Hero.), Bokeem Woodbine (.Riddick,. .Total Recall.) and Luke Goss (.Hellboy II: The Golden Army,. .Death Race. sequels). .The Night Crew. is slated for release summer of »

“Is this the end of zombie Shakespeare?” It would appear not, as John Murlowski’s comedy Zombie Hamlet makes its way onto DVD on December 31st. Written by John McKinney and with original music by Jackson Rathbone, whom you might remember from Twilight or, if you’re too ashamed to admit you knew that, the indie horror flick Dread.
Zombie Hamlet tells the story of first-time film director, Osric Taylor (Travis Wester), as he finally manages to get his dream movie financed. He envisions Shakespeare's Hamlet set against the epic backdrop of the American Civil War. Osric heads to a small Louisiana town to start filming when his production funding unexpectedly dries up. With no other options, he agrees to accept southern matron Hester Beauchamp's offer to finance his movie, as long as »

The undead get Shakespearean in the inevitable 2012 comedy film Zombie Hamlet.
Desperate filmmaker Osric Taylor (Travis Wester, TV’s Ghostfacers) dreams of making his Civil War-era Hamlet, but when production funding dries up, he agrees to take southern matron Hester Beauchamps’ (June Lockhart, TV’s Lost in Space) offer to fund the film if he throws some zombies in it to make their money back. But when Hester dies in mid shoot, Osric dresses up as Hester to cash the last check and awakens the suspicions of both the local police and ambitious local news reporter Shine Reynolds (Shelley Long, TV’s Cheers).

Kevin Smith, the director of Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma and many others is also the owner of a comic book store in Red Bank, New Jersey, called “Jay & Silent Bob’s Secret Stash”, and this television show follows the guys who run the store – Walt Flanagan, Bryan Johnson, Mike Zapcic and Ming Chen (pictured above with Smith).
The idea behind the show is almost a comic-book themed Pawn Stars where the staff of the Secret Stash barter with clients who come into the shop to sell various comic book related items, such as books, toys, games and even the odd pair of “underoos”
This, the second season of the show, contains sixteen episodes, with each beginning with round-table style discussions lead by Kevin Smith as he talks to the staff of the store, Walt, Ming, Mike and Brian (each episode of the show is accompanied by a companion podcast, titled The »

Jason Mewes has been on the scene for a long time. It's hard to believe it was nearly 20 years ago that we first got a look at Jay and Silent Bob in the classic comedy Clerks. Dread Central recently had the chance to talk with this veteran actor about his new horror/comedy Silent But Deadly.
Mewes started by giving us a brief overview on the film. "It's about a dude who was misunderstood because he's not the smartest guy around and he sort of just loses his cool," Mewes said. "Also he loses his best friend. I won't give that away right now, but he loses his best friend, his only friend, and he loses it upon losing his friend and being mistreated and goes on a sort of killing spree. I know that doesn't make it unique, but…I never want to give away too much…when he's going around killing, »

Now that the kids have gone back to school, things have gotten relatively quiet in the streaming wars. One thing that alarms though is in looking at the list below, you see the usual titles from late last year being added to Now TV, Lovefilm etc, but where is the new stuff on Netflix? Sure they have added some good catalogue stuff but Gambit is their only title? Really?
It’s not looking good for Netflix which sucks because as I have said before, their software and its reliability and ease of use would mean they would have this war all sewn up if they could just land the big films the way Lovefilm and Now TV are doing, The Hobbit and Breaking Bad are their only recent big wins since Orange is the New Black. With the other big ones averaging at least one huge new title a week, »

Todd and the Book of Pure Evil is about a demonic high school where a group of teens partner with a janitor (Jason Mewes) to fight the evil forces running the school (and possibly the world?). It's like Glee meets Scott Pilgrim with far worse dialogue and writing than Glee ever mustered (if that's even remotely possible). And it's more Canadian, or something.
Although, I never watched the first season, I'm noW kind of glad I didn't. While not a terrible concept or anything, the execution is piss-poor. The acting is abysmal and the writing is completely lifeless. I'm not sure I understand the high marks the series gets, or how this series has fans in any way, shape or form.

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying." – Woody Allen
Greetings from the apocalypse! Woody Allen may have been cracking wise with that quote, but when it comes to Wolverine, eternity is no laughing matter. Somehow this weekend has found a way to include both in your moviegoing diet, so let's feast, shall we?

Bias Admission: When Darren Aronofsky announced that he would be directing "The Wolverine," I went out and bought up the original Chris Claremont/Frank Miller source material, absorbing the Japan-set rōnin's tale in all its '80s glory. Then the "Black Swan" helmer dropped out, James Mangold took up the reins and I promptly sold that graphic novel. Why? It wasn't worth getting invested in anymore. Aronofsky is a visionary director, Mangold is a journeyman, and as soon as he signed on »

One of the things I love so much about the horror genre is just how many sub-sections there are to it. I mean, if you were so inclined or just in the mood, you could focus your movie viewing leisure time specifically to the supernatural, or to zombies, or perhaps werewolves & vampires, or monsters (oh my)! But for me, I personally like to get seasonal with my horror movies. And so with summer officially upon us, this is the time of year I break out all of my favorite (and obscure) summer slasher horror! We figured we’d give you 6 recommendations so you could get into the summer slasher spirit as well; some of which are well known, some obscure and some recent ones that just warrant another look in the off chance you missed ‘em upon their initial release. The 'Friday The 13th' films are a given, »

Jason Mewes is best known to the world as the Jay in Jay and Silent Bob. A fixture in Kevin Smith films, Jason usually plays the stereotypical stoner kid. In his new project, “Vigilante Diaries,” Jason goes in a different direction. In this web series he produces and stars in, Jason plays a documentary filmmaker who gets drawn into the world of vigilante justice. We chatted with Jason about his new action-hero role, and of course, grilled him for details on Clerks 3.
Tell me about these “Vigilante Diaries.”
“Vigilante Diaries” is a web series my buddy Paul [Sloan] wrote and created. It’s about a dude named Mike Hanover - which is the guy I play - he likes making documentaries and shooting and editing... like the guy who made Girls Gone Wild. That style. Not necessarily because he did the same thing, but because he had success with doing his own thing with the camera, »
