We chatted briefly with Todd Tucker and Harvey Lowry from Drac Studios on the red carpet of Spike's Scream Awards 2009, and the duo were very excited about their upcoming flick Monster Mutt , which Tucker directed and Lowry produced. "We.re a week away from completely finishing Monster Mutt ," Tucker tells Shock. "It.s a family fantasy film about a family dog that gets kidnapped by a corporation, they use him for testing and turn him into a monster dog. It.s lovable big monster dog, all practical FX. It.s a creature suit and an animatronic head." Monster Mutt sounds ideal for the Halloween season; we had to ask the influences they were going for with this one. "It.s very much character driven, it.s PG so it.s not gory or anything," confesses »
The kiddies need some family-friendly horror to sink their teeth into. Think of it as training wheels for future horror fans. That's where movies like Monster Mutt come in. The family friendly comedy follows the exploits of the family dog, Max, as an evil corporation tests their new energy drink on the lovable mutt. Max undergoes a monstrous transformation as the family tries to hold on to their beloved pet.
Monster Mutt co-stars the likes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"'s Juliet Landau, Postal's Zack Ward, and Kim Fields Aka "Tootie" from "The Facts of Life". Kim Fields - now there's a name I haven't heard in ages.
Todd Tucker (a co-producer of the Night of the Demons remake) directs the film for Green Pictures and Burnside Entertainment. Expect the monster dog effects to be solid considering they are being done by Oscar-winning FX house Drac Studios. You may »
Juliet Landau is known for being the vile vampiress Drusilla on Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the spinoff Angel. But lately she’s been directing a horror-themed music video for Godhead called Hero, directing a documentary about Gary Oldman, and writing two issues of the Angel comic book for Idw that feature her character. Landau has appeared in all kinds of movies, from Tim Burton’s Ed Wood to her most recent appearance in a kid’s movie, but she’s a driving force behind the camera as well as has a very distinct creative vision. Juliet shares her latest projects with us...
“It was an unbelievable experience,” she says about working with Tim Burton (She played the spoiled actress Ed Wood is forced to work with.) “It was obscenely fun. It was what moviemaking should be. I had a great time on that.”
