Fright Exclusive Interview - Actor/Writer/Director William Butler!

29 March 2009 11:12 AM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Just added! A Fright exclusive interview with William Butler! As a genre fan, you probably recognize William Butler. After all, he got killed in just about every major horror sequel in the late 80's/early 90's - Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood, Night Of The Living Dead 1990. Hell, even the Ghoulies got him in Ghoulies II, as well as Freddy Krueger in an episode of Freddy's Nightmares.

But after all those on-screen cinematic deaths, he went on to write & direct a few horror features of his own with Madhouse (starring Joshua Leonard, Jordan Ladd, Lance Henriksen & Natasha Lyonne) & Furnace (with Michael Pare, Ja Rule, Danny Trejo & Tom Sizemore). He also co-wrote Return Of The Living Dead 4: Necropolis & Return To The Living Dead 5: Rave To The Grave. (Don't worry, he explains what happened with both of those in this interview).

Before the Oscars, They Belonged to Us, Part 2

25 February 2009 2:52 AM, PST | | See recent Dread Central news »

Disclaimer: This article may contain sarcasm; irony and “LOLs” proceed with caution.

Our second stab at the Oscars contains make-up effects and score (read part 1 here). The make-up effects, followed by the visual effects and technical awards, remain my favorite parts of the show; here you got to see your heroes: Rick Baker, Howard Berger, Chris Walas or Rob Bottin in the audience. Even the great Stan Winston could have been out there, back in the day. Though best known for his “visual effects” wins—he brought home an Oscar for best make-up in 1991 for Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Here genre fans can rejoice, Greg Cannom brought home the gold, again, for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Cannom, a genre elder, worked alongside (just to name a few) Fincher, Coppola, Landis, Dante, Blatty, and Cohen creating all sorts of character and creature make-ups.
