Interview with Tales Of Halloween’s Mike Mendez

  • DailyDead
To celebrate the October 16th release of the horror anthology Tales of Halloween, Daily Dead spoke to the filmmakers behind the movie to discuss the project, their individual contributions and more.

Mike Mendez is best known as the director of films like The Convent, The Gravedancers, Big Ass Spider! and, most recently, the horror comedy Lavalantula for Syfy. He’s both a producer and a director on Tales of Halloween, contributing the ’80s slasher-inspired “Friday the 31st.”

This project started with you and Axelle Carolyn, right?

Mike Mendez: It’s Axelle’s concept and she’s the one who got the ball rolling. She told a few of us about it, and I brought in Epic Pictures and got it financed. From that point on, it’s been Axelle’s and my burden to bear, for better or worse. A very fun burden to bear.

DVD Review: The Day Time Ended

The Day Time Ended

Stars: Jim Davis, Christopher Mitchum, Dorothy Malone, Marcy Lafferty, Natasha Ryan | Written by Wayne Schmidt, J. Larry Carroll & David Schmoeller | Directed by John ‘Bud’ Carlos

Sometimes you pick the films you’re going to review based entirely on how ridiculous the titles are. It works for a while: you get a few choice so-bad-they’re-good b-movies and the occasional left-field gem, and most of the time the title alone is worth the movie’s inevitable failure to live up to its own hype.

And then you come across a film like The Day Time Ended.

I’d tell you the plot, but I’m really not sure it has one. The opening narration is so badly mixed that I couldn’t tell if it was part of the story or just an old Shatner record played backwards. IMDb relays it thusly: “Aliens visit the solar-powered house of a middle-class family,

This week's new DVD & Blu-ray

Marvel Avengers Assemble

Marvel, Paramount and Disney already know you will buy this. How can you tell? Because none of those well-off companies felt it necessary to stump up even loose change on a decent cover for this release. It arrives looking like something you'd usually see being flogged by some bloke in a shady pub. They could have just had white card with "Avungerz Movie" scrawled in crayon and you'd still buy it. Thing is, they're right.

The Avengers – let's drop that clumsy UK title – is the culmination of years of work and millions of dollars of prepping the audience with heavily advertised and generally very good films introducing Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and Captain America. We didn't stand a chance. With The Avengers we get to see them all brought together, turn on each other and then come together when faced with an incredibly powerful foe.
