As I sat in the Alamo Drafthouse last week, waiting to chat with Michael Biehn, I couldn't help wondering who exactly would show up.
In a career that has spanned more than three decades, Biehn has played every type of character imaginable. Would I be talking to the hardass Navy Seal from The Abyss, or the concerned dad from Havoc, or perhaps the crazy cowboy from Tombstone ?
Biehn was in town for SplatterFest, Houston's premier horror film festival, where he was presenting his debut as a writer/director, The Victim, a hard-charging revenge thriller that instantly morphs any theater into a smoky, sticky-floored grindhouse.

Accompanying Biehn was his wife, »
Yesterday Twitch ran a brief interview with Michael Biehn in which Biehn discusses his experiences as the director of The Blood Bond in which Biehn states that he feels the film was taken from his control and mishandled by producer Bey Logan. In the interests of getting both sides of the story we immediately forwarded this story to Logan and invited his comments, which follow below.From Bey Logan:I have noted Michael Biehn's comments in your interview, and would like to preface my own by thanking him publicly for his hard work on Blood Bond: Shadowguard.I am certain Michael did the best he could on the film.

[Our thanks to The Night Crew co-host Thom Carnell for conducting the following interview.]Back in May James Marsh commented negatively about the then titled film Shadowguard (aka The Blood Bond: Shadowguard aka The Blood Bond) here at Twitch in a post regarding the domestic release of the trailer for Bey Logan's latest film, Beach Spike prompting a response from writer/director/actor Michael Biehn. In his note, Beihn said, "To call the movie referenced above my directorial debut is a farce. The role of Director includes several aspects of movie making which I had no part in. I was not involved in the casting, (nor did I write the script), I was not involved with editing, sound mixing, colorization, music, Adr, or any other aspect of »
Those crazy guys over at Arrow have been speaking with Michael Biehn, Jennifer Blanc and Danielle Harris the trio starring in new psychological thriller 'The Victim'. The flick was helmed and written by Biehn himself and co-stars Ryan Honey and Denny Kirkwood. The trio chat about their time on the movie, and also touch on various sex scenes within the film itself involving Biehn and his real life wife Blanc and also the pounding of actress Danielle Harris (Rob Zombies' 'Halloween'). This isn't Biehn's first time behind the camera either, he made his directorial debut last year with his action thriller 'The Blood Bond'.

Check out two trailers (including a red band ditty filled with an extra dose of the ol sex and violence) for Michael Biehn’s “The Victim”, his second flick as director (but first as writer) after “The Blood Bond”, his directorial debut that I’ve heard about and reported on, but haven’t seen much from. We’re getting a lot more on “The Victim”, though, including a snazzy poster. Check them out below, people who enjoy checking out Michael Biehn movies. Good time girls Annie (Jennifer Blanc) and Mary (Danielle Harris) went into the wilderness looking for a good time. But when Annie witnesses a violent act at the hands of two Sheriff’s Deputies, she is forced on the run and stumbles across Kyle (Michael Biehn), a recluse living in the woods. Two worlds collide in this psychological thriller that will make you question your trust in mankind. »
