Interview: Lindsey McKeon Talks Supernatural

Taking risks as you try to figure out where you belong, and what you should be doing with your life, can be a difficult challenge for anyone, no matter what their circumstances or personalities are like. That’s certainly the case with both actress Lindsey McKeon, a former two-time Daytime Emmy Award nominee for her role as Marah Lewis on ‘Guiding Light,’ as well as one of her more recent characters, Tessa the Reaper, on the hit CW series, ‘Supernatural.’ The actress began her career on more family oriented shows as ‘Saved by the Bell: The New Class’ and ‘Boy Meets World,’ before delving into more sultry roles, such as on  [ Read More ]

Jesse Hutch

Jesse Hutch is fighting for his life against Rusty Nail in “Joy Ride 3,” the most horrortastic installment in the “Joy Ride” series. ShockYa was happy to talk to Hutch about his leadership role in the film, reuniting with Ken Kirzinger and funny horror movies. “Joy Ride 3″ is available for home viewing now. I’ve talked to Ken Kirzinger last week, and from what I’ve heard, the film is going to be even more exciting than the other two. Jesse Hutch: I’m hearing that the word on the street is that that’s correct, apparently [laughs]. It’s one of those things that you never know how people are going to take  [ Read More ]

Joy Ride 3-Rusty Nail Truck

The world of car racing is already dangerous enough, with the ever present fear of getting into an accident while competing on the track. When something as seemingly trivial as a Rusty Nail is thrown into the car racing equation, people don’t often ponder the effects it can have on the competition’s outcome. But initial looks can be deceiving, which is clearly evident with the return of villain Rusty Nail in 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s upcoming thriller, ‘Joy Ride 3: Road Kill.’ Written and directed by horror filmmaker, Declan O’Brien, ‘Joy Ride 3: Road Kill,’ the second sequel in the hit ‘Joy Ride’ franchise, brought back the mysterious villain  [ Read More ]

Joy Ride 3

Ken Kirzinger has been in tons of major blockbusters doing incredible stunts, but when “Joy Ride 3″ comes out, you’ll be able to see him as the iconic presence that is Rusty Nail. ShockYa was happy to talk with Kirzinger about taking on the character and his storied film stunt career. “Joy Ride 3″ will be released June 17. What was it like taking on the iconic character of Rusty Nail? It was a lot of fun. I guess I’m no stranger to being into other shoes after playing Jason in “Freddy vs. Jason,” so it wasn’t anything new in that way. I was a project that I was really  [ Read More ]

The Signal

It isn’t easy getting your first feature off the ground, but William Eubank managed to pull it off and in a rather unconventional manner. He didn’t attend a traditional film school or track down an industry contact willing to give him a shot. Eubank entered a Red Hot Chili Peppers music video contest – and lost. But he did wind up with quite the consolation prize – the band Angels and Airwaves agreed to both produce and score his first feature, “Love.” After four years of work that included building a fully realized space station set, writing, directing and shooting the film himself, Eubank wound up with a final product  [ Read More ]

John Jarratt in Wolf Creek 2

It’s been nearly ten years since we’ve seen Mick Taylor mutilate unsuspecting victims in “Wolf Creek,” but now he’s back and eager to torment a new crop of tourists. This time around the narrative centers on Paul Hammersmith (Ryan Corr). While driving down a highway in South Australia, he unknowingly attempts to help one of Mick’s many victims and, as one might expect, Mick doesn’t appreciate it so makes Paul his next target. Paul’s a bright guy with a lot of resolve, but that might not be enough to outrun Mick and his enormous arsenal right in his own backyard. With “Wolf Creek 2” making its US theatrical debut today,  [ Read More ]

Interview: John Jarratt Talks Wolf Creek 2

Embracing and cherishing a long honored tradition is the pulsating driving force in the new horror thriller, ‘Wolf Creek 2.’ The independent film, which is the anticipated sequel to the 2005 slasher movie, ‘Wolf Creek,’ maintains the brutality, gore and menacing villain, Mick Taylor, of the first installment, which helped make it the highest grossing R-rated film of all time in its native Australia. Filmmaker Greg Mclean, who made his feature film writing and directorial debuts with the commercially successful first movie, returned to the series nearly a decade after the original’s release to showcase that Mick continuously enjoys killing innocent victims, and audiences love watching him commit his heinous  [ Read More ]

The Cast and Crew Talk Zombeavers (Tribeca Film Festival)

With the recent resurgence in the zombie genre, from AMC’s hit series, ‘The Walking Dead,’ to last year’s hit ‘Evil Dead’ remake, it’s only natural Hollywood wants to amp up the genre once again. The genre has switched its distinct trademark of bringing recently deceased people back to life as flesh-eating killers, to instead on a totally new predator-zombie beavers. First-time feature film writer Jordan Rubin, who also co-wrote the new independent horror film, ‘Zombeavers,’ with Al and Jon Kaplan, amusingly showcases what would happen to humanity if the semi-aquatic animal came back to life. The horror movie, which had its world premiere on April 19 at the 2014 Tribeca  [ Read More ]

Interview: Daniel Stamm Talks 13 Sins

Contently and fearlessly chasing down seemingly daunting and unfamiliar tasks can have potentially harrowing effects on people’s emotional and mental well-being. But when these intimidating challenges offer even the slightest incentive, people discover they can push their limits further than they even imagined, in order to obtain an enticing reward. Not only is that the case with the protagonist in the new independent horror thriller, ’13 Sins,’ as he tests his comfort zone in order to provide for this family, but also writer-director Daniel Stamm. The filmmaker, who first gained mainstream recognition for his 2010 hit horror thriller, ‘The Last Exorcism,’ returned to the genre that helped make him famous  [ Read More ]

FilmOn is also loving “Afflicted”; the online service was able to interview the filmmakers and stars of the film, Clif Prowse and Derek Lee, exclusively for their viewers.

Interview: Mark Webber Talks 13 Sins

Pushing yourself past your set comfort zone in order to explore new experiences and potentially gain an insightful advantage in your personal and professional lives can be a difficult challenge for many people. They can be forced to explore and question their own moral judgments and values, and how far they would willingly wreak havoc on other people’s lives, just to gain an edge of advantage in their own. The main protagonist in the new independent horror-thriller ’13 Sins,’ the down-on-his-luck Elliot, is forced to physically and emotionally test his moral judgment for his own financial gain. The actor who portrays him, Mark Webber, who’s known for starring in more  [ Read More ]

Cheap Thrills Interview: Big Dares & Big Changes for Pat Healy

Pat Healy in Cheap Thrills

You know Pat Healy, right? Well, if you don’t, that means you probably haven’t seen “The Great World of Sound,” “The Innkeepers,” or “Compliance,” and that also means you have quite a bit of movie watching to do. But before you get to any of that, Healy’s latest feature is an absolute must. In fact, “Cheap Thrills” is easily the best film I caught on the film festival circuit in 2013. Healy leads as Craig, a loving husband and father who gets slapped with an eviction notice and loses his job all in the same day. In an effort to ease the pain, Craig hits the bar and that’s where  [ Read More ]

SXSW 2014 Interview: Oculus Director Mike Flanagan

Oculus

When Mike Flanagan’s short film “Oculus: Chapter 3 – The Man with the Plan” hit the festival circuit and conjured some buzz, there was immediate interest in turning it into a feature film. Trouble is, because the short involved just one character, the mirror and a few cameras in the room, all of those interested parties insisted on taking a found footage approach to the material, and that’s not the route Flanagan wanted to go. Holding strong to his original intent, Flanagan tucked “Oculus” away for quite some time until Intrepid Pictures came along and let him do it his way. “Oculus” the feature focuses on Kaylie and Tim Russell  [ Read More ]

Sasha Grey in Open Windows

Welcome to shaky cam 2.0. Writer-director Nacho Vigalondo doesn’t have a character running around “Open Windows” with a camera in his hand, but he does have one in the midst of a Skype-type call, another with an active iPhone camera, an abundance of security camera perspectives and more. Think you’ve seen those point-of-views before? Perhaps, but not just via a laptop screen. Nick (Elijah Wood) runs JillGoddard-Caught.com, a website that offers an endless stream of photos of Hollywood starlet, Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey). Under the impression he’s won a fan contest and will get to have dinner with Jill, Nick flies to Austin, Texas to meet her while she tours  [ Read More ]

Stage Fright

A horror musical? Really? Yes! And if you’re as skeptical as I was about the combination just before walking into my SXSW screening of “Stage Fright,” you better throw all that apprehension out the window because not only is the film quite good, but it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I had the entire festival. The film stars Allie MacDonald as Camilla Swanson. Back when she was a kid, her mother (Minnie Driver) was murdered while in the midst of a run leading the Broadway show, “Haunting of the Opera.” Years later, Camilla still dreams of following in her mother’s footsteps (minus the untimely demise), but the problem  [ Read More ]
