Horror Channel Frightfest Interview: Marko Makilaakso talks ‘It Came From the Desert’

Ahead of the UK premiere of his latest film It Came From the Desert at the Horror Channel Frightfest Halloween event, director Marko Mäkilaakso shares his admiration for Roger Corman, love of B-Movies, spoofing and overcoming homeland obstacles.

It Came From the Desert is inspired by Cinemaware’s cult 1980s video game, which in turn was motivated by the giant creature feature craze infesting 1950s Hollywood. What was the main inspiration for you?

There’s so many movies and makers which inspired Icftd, but the main inspiration was exactly that; creature feature infested 1950s Hollywood films, and the legendary Cinemaware Desert games and creature features and action comedies I grew up with in the 1980s. I love B-movies and mainstream filmmakers who give homages to those in their works, like Joe Dante, John Landis, Tim Burton, Steven Spielberg etc. There’s something so pure and honest about B-movies and even

TV on Tap: Steve Carrell Won't Return to "The Office," Brooke Shields Joins "Army Wives" and "American Horror Story" Loses Viewers

The CGI blood splatter makes one final run as Spartacus: War of the Damned begins.

News

NBC's adaptation of The Gates, based on a British comedy about parents dropping their kids off after school has added Ken Marino and Aasif Mandvi to its cast.

Steve Carrell confirmed he won't be returning to The Office for the finale, Carrell told Access Hollywood, "I just didn’t think it was right for the character, because that character had had an arch within the story and kind of grew and sort of evolved past the idea of the documentary."

As the revamping of Army Wives continues, we learn that Brooke Shields is joining the drama.

Steve Howey will appear in an upcoming episode of New Girl as a professional football player who catches Jess' eye, according to TVLine.

There's a part me that would like to give Beauty and the Beast another chance.

The Abominable Snowman Descends Upon Skiers and Adrian Paul

Funny how things can evolve throughout the creative process. When I first saw a listing for Deadly Descent on UFO International Productions' website months ago, the synopsis described skiers and snowboarders trapped on a mountain by an avalanche having to also deal with a pack of wild dogs after them. Somewhere along the way those ravenous dogs got turned into a Yeti and the title got massively elongated to Deadly Descent: The Legend of the Abominable Snowman.

In 1992 Glacier Peak, Washington, a small group of back country skiers climb Glacier Peak, one of most remote mountains in the Cascade Range. Lead by Jake Tanner, the group is somewhere high up on the mountain where they disappear and are never seen again.

Present Day - Glacier Peak. A helicopter soars over the snowy peak. In the rear cabin is a U.S. Special Forces member fresh off a long tour in Afghanistan: Brian Tanner.

Does This Look Like an Abominable Snowman Film to You?

UFO International Productions continues to feed the trash compactor with Deadly Descent: The Legend of the Abominable Snowman , starring Chuck Campbell and Adrian Paul. The art below is what they're using to sell the picture. Just screams "Abominable Snowman," right? I took a gander at UFO's site and I see there's another Deadly Descent listed - complete with action-packed art . But the plot that goes with that page details another story that does not include an abominable snowman. Instead, a pack of genetically engineered wolves are after snowboarders. So, either UFO has a series of Deadly Descent films in the works or they just said halfway through development, "F**k the wolves, let's go with a goddamn Yeti."
