Dorothy Booraem is a video production multi-hyphenate from Lincoln, Nebraska. In addition to creating several film and video shorts, she is also the writer and director of the Asian-influenced horror feature Wake the Witch (available on Netflix). As the COO of Unfiltered Entertainment, a privately owned production company, she has helped in fostering a creative community of artists who specialize in genre content. Her newest project, Blood Rites, is a well-shot, micro-budget horror feature that she co-wrote, produced and directed with the help of her dedicated team. In spite of our underwhelming review, Booraem generously gave her time (and refreshing sense of humor) to speak with Planet Fury about working with a low budget, her creative process and embracing negative criticism.
How did you get started making movies?
How did I get started making movies? Like this… I was working at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival in Boulder on the costume/prop crew. »

In my humble opinion, all you really need for a successfully scary horror picture is a weird guy in clown make-up. Nevermind the ghosts, the ghouls, or the goblins — if you want to freak my freak, then have a creepy clown menace bunch of unsuspecting individuals for 90 minutes. Victor Mathieu’s upcoming horror flick “CarnieVille” seems to operate solely on this premise, and while the framework might be a little wonky, I’ll still check it out since I’m a sucker for clown-oriented genre fare. That’s the only reason I own “Fear of Clowns”. Yes, I’m that stupidly hardcore. Need a synopsis? We’ve got you covered: After having witnessed her neighbor murder his own wife in his clown outfit, Corey has been dealing with coulrophobia (fear of clowns) ever since she was a child. On Halloween night her boyfriend and his friends decide to help her »

Supernatural Preview: Dean Thinks Sam's Fear of Clowns is Hilarious
Yesterday we posted a sneak peek for the upcoming February 10 episode of Supernatural (watch it here). After the Amazons escaped town at the end of the last episode, the boys, unfortunately, have no other leads on the women. While Dean checks in with Frank to prompt him to dig more on the leviathans, Sam spots a possible case for them. As it turns out, several parents are being murdered in a small town. What do the victims have in common? Recently, all of their children were at Plucky Pennywhistle's pizza parlor. While there, the kids were asked to draw a picture of their greatest fear, which later comes to life and kills their parents. Expect all manner of monsters and even a murderous unicorn to pop up in the episode.

Feeling sorry for Will Ferrell and why Oscar prefers crying to a good belly laugh
I feel a little sorry for Will Ferrell.
No, it’s not the succession of box-office hits, the staggering star salary or the house in the Hollywood hills that’s probably quite spacious with a pretty decent-sized garage. Because let’s face it, that’s all quite nice. No, I feel sorry for Will Ferrell because he’s never going to win an Oscar, and I think that’s a crying shame.
What is it with the Academy and comedy? Did somebody have a bad genre experience as a kid and decide comedy should be overlooked every time the Oscar nominations roll around? Fear of clowns maybe…?
Ok, so this year’s better than most. But still, of this year’s more light-hearted Best Picture nominations, The Descendants kicks off with a woman in hospital with a life-threatening head injury, »
