Silver Scream Fest: An all-star tribute to Wes Craven

4 March 2016 9:15 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, and producer Marianne Maddalena graced the stage of our Silver Scream Fest in Santa Rosa, Calif., to pay tribute to Wes Craven, the filmmaker who changed all their lives and the face of horror cinema. The three had a comfortable rapport, having known each other for decades at this point.

When asked by moderator Neil Pearlmutter who the real Craven was, Englund graciously deferred to Maddalena, because, while he and Langenkamp had worked with him as actors on several projects, Maddalena had been his right-hand man for years. Maddalena said that when she interviewed to be his assistant, “I told him I wanted to be a producer. He did everything he could and two years later, I was a producer on a film called Shocker.”

She then related an anecdote that illustrated his sense of humor. He loaned her a screener of What’S Eating Gilbert Grape? »

Harry Potter Shocker: Rupert Grint Said He Didn’t Want to Kiss Emma Watson

31 January 2016 10:54 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’m calling publicity stunt here.  I don’t care what Rupert Grint is claiming.  In what’s coming as a complete shock, the Harry Potter star said that he didn’t want to kiss Emma Watson in their famous kissing scene.  While the reason seems legit, I still don’t care.  Grint, now 27, says, “I never look back at that scene.”  At least that’s what he said on Friday at Universal Orlando’s Celebration of Harry Potter event.  Grint then went on to say “I’ve known Emma since she was literally nine years old and we had this very brother-sister relationship. And it just

‘The Drownsman’ DVD Review

17 January 2016 9:14 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michelle Mylett, Caroline Korycki, Gemma Bird Matheson, Sydney Kondruss, Clare Bastable, Ry Barrett, JoAnn Nordstrom | Written by Chad Archibald, Cody Calahan | Directed by Chad Archibald

Chad Archibald, producer of Antisocial (a personal fave) turns his hand to directing with a film which is a bold attempt to create an all-new horror villain in The Drownsman. And hey, what’s not to like about another horror film starring the wonderful Michelle Mylett?

This time round Mylett plays Madison who, after almost drowning in a lake, develops debilitating hydrophobia and with good reason. It’s not just water the frightens Madison, it’s the supernatural entity that continually haunts her through it, a rancid ghostly entity trying to pull her into his dark, wet world. Her friends, worried for her sanity, decide to stage an intervention – with dire consequences. Their attempts to help their friend only unleash the drownsman’s rage »
