We told you about Joston Theney's sequel to his flick Axeman, entitled Axeman 2: Overkill, a couple of weeks back; and right now we have the first ever interview with star Angelica Bridges ("Baywatch," "The Bold and The Beautiful").
Dread Central: The producers, Joston "El Rey" Theney and Dr. Christopher Otiko, have been a little tight-lipped about the script. What can you tell us about the film?
Angelica Bridges: I don't want to give out too many of the gory details, but I will say they are going for more horror, if that's even possible. They will be taking the "killings" in the film to a whole other level of profoundness! People that usually don't ever cover their eyes while watching horror films will probably be starting a new trend after watching this film.
DC: You play "Dungie" in the film. What can you tell us about the character? »

“Oh My God What Is That?! What Is It!” – I don’t know, stop shaking the camera violently and I’ll tell you!
I’ve been watching a ton of “found footage” lately, not because I’ve furiously been seeking out such subgenre work, but those are the screeners that have been falling into my lap. There’s been a nice variation, from cyber killers to zombies, vampires to the paranormal, but my most recent “found footage” watch branches into different territory – the final frontier. Alien Abduction is exactly that, a recounting of events that end with a camping family being abducted – but it stumbles into every generic “found footage” pitfall along the way. Mix that with my lack of interest in abduction stories, and you’ve got a sci-fi horror flick that’s a dizzying whirl of costumed actors, screaming children, and fuzzy imagery. Until I wake up to »

Mark Fisher disappeared from home in a blinding blue light flash. His friend Seth Hampton was the last person to see him alive. Two years later, a series of atrocious, grisly murders leads Seth to believe that Mark has somehow returned, but changed into something different, strange… not of this world. Mark has indeed become a humanoid alien receptacle for evil – and the last place you should look is in his cellar.
There are times when I sit down to watch a movie that I need to review in which I’m filled with dread, typically because the particular style of film or the (sub) genre doesn’t appeal – found-footage movies being my particular bane. Now I know »

My biggest problem with most alien abduction flicks is that they lack bite. Some lights flicker, eyes might bleed, loud noises screech through the air, but it’s typically a bunch of people levitating or vanishing. Take The Fourth Kind for example – it tries, it really does, but all we’re left with are owl faces and stories of abduction. Almost Human is not that movie, because writer/director Joe Begos brilliantly works the gory thrills of a gleeful slasher movie into a creature-heavy alien story with all the usual abduction trimmings. We get the bright lights and high-pitched screams, but afterwards, Begos gives us oh so much more.
We’ve all heard stories of alien abductions – flashy lights, missing bodies, and unsavory anal probing. This is the case one night while Seth (Graham Skipper) and his buddy are driving to another friend’s house, as Seth is the only »
