The first trailer is here for the new horror film from John Schneider (yes, that John Schneider of "Dukes of Hazzard fame). Smothered has a cast filled with a handful of beloved horror icons, who are all apparently playing themselves in it. Check it out!
From the Press Release
When John R. Schneider wrote Smothered, he wrote a reverse of the classic horror film model. Instead of a bunch of college-aged girls getting slaughtered by men in masks, his film features men of the mask getting slaughtered by a beautiful young vixen.
And, in a turn that will leave horror fans titillated, the film features a list of horror icons playing “themselves” in this “horroromedy” (horror/comedy) film with more humanity than you’d expect from a film where almost everyone dies.

So, what do we have here? The trailer for Smothered has shown up and well, I don’t really know what to make of it but I’m intrigued.
Billed as a horror/comedy and starring Kane Hodder, Ra Milhailoff, Bill Moseley, Don Shanks, and Malcolm Danare it comes to us from director John Schneider (yeah, that John Schneider) and turns the table on these famed horror killers as they find themselves hunted by a group of crazy … Continue reading →

One of my fondest rites of passage into becoming a full fledged horror nut was when I got to see my first theatrical Halloween movie in theaters. I was 12 years old when I witnessed Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers on the big-screen and at that point I’d already read everything that Fangoria had to report about the movie. I’d already watched the first two Halloween movies countless times both on TV and video, in particular Halloween II which was my favorite at the time. And so when I walked out of the theater, I was already yearning for more.
Luckily I wouldn’t have to wait too long as the box office success of Halloween 4 insured that the next film in the series would immediately go into production and be released one year later. But as time has proved, perhaps its not the best idea to »

ShockTillYouDrop.com was the first to tell you back in June that John Schneider was in Louisiana directing Smothered, a new horror film starring Kane Hodder, Ra Mihailoff and Bill Moseley playing themselves. Brea Grant was also set to star.
Now we have learned Don Shanks, Malcolm Danare, Amy Brassette, Shanna Forrestall and Dana Rhodes will also appear in the film which Schneider penned and concerns a group of horror vets working the convention circuit when they are stalked by a killer.

Kane Hodder. If you’re a horror fan, then hearing that name Instantly places images of Jason Voorhees, Victor Crowley and quite a few other monsters and characters into your mind. He’s an important figure to slasher history, and definitely a fan favorite in the Friday The 13th franchise (he played the hockey mask-wearing character for four films), not to mention being the Only actor to portray Victor Crowley in the Hatchet films. We were lucky enough to speak with Kane recently, to talk about Hatchet III, the supposed final entry into the series, along with his thoughts on portraying two iconic film monsters. Read on!
When you ask fans who their favorite Jason is, 9 out of 10 of them will say “Kane Hodder”, and obviously when Victor Crowley comes up, you’re the only person to have played him, how does it feel to have played not one, but Two slasher iconic characters? »
In 1978, John Carpenter made what is, in my opinion, the best film of all time. There isn’t a single film that rivals my love for Halloween. I’m also fond of the second film, though I’ve never been a fan of the sister/niece/nephew/you name it angles that the franchise decided to take throughout the years, beginning with the Laurie Strode revelation in Part 2. I’ve always thought that the simplicity of Michael breaking out of the hospital and going back home to stalk and kill a group of teens solely because Laurie decided to drop off the key at the house was a scary touch. The countless different attempts to explain Michael, add family members, and kill off characters that we loved always seemed to frustrate me. With that being said though, I do find the first five Halloween films very enjoyable. Are any of »
