I know it’s shocking, I am blogging twice in one month. But this isn’t really my writing. I am re-posting another blog. I gave an interview to “Kickin’ it Old School – 80s Pop Culture and More. One dude’s point of view on popular culture with special attention paid to the great decade of the 80s.” The dude is Tim and although I know his last name I cannot find it anywhere on his blog so perhaps he prefers anonymity. His site is super fun to visit especially if you are like me and the 80s is your thing.
Tim put a lot of work into finding pics and clips. So if you want a peak into my distant past, please check this out.
Los Angeles doesn’t just have one horror film festival throughout the year they have at least 9! Wow, who knew? I am in two of the bigger ones this weekend and next week: Shriekfest and Screamfest.
Horror is not my favorite genre to watch as I am a bit of a delicate hothouse flower and am easily terrified. My nervous system simply can not take it. I already grind my teeth, I already jump/shriek if I bump into someone when I round a corner, and I already have a thrilling soundtrack playing in my head. Perhaps I should be on Xanax. But filming horror movies is FUN!
The first film is THE LAST LIGHT. It is a psychological thriller that scared me even while reading it. Andrew Hyatt wrote and directed this film. I saw THE FROZEN (also written and directed by Andrew) and I thought I was going to jump out of my skin. Andrew is a master at building tension. THE LAST LIGHT premieres at ShriekFest on Saturday Night, October 5. To learn more or to buy tickets click here shriekfest.com/schedule_2013
The next film is called BENEATH it is directed by Ben Ketai. Ben already has a fan club from movies like 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: DARK DAYS and the digital series CHOSEN. If you are claustrophobic and like being scared this film is for you! BENEATH premiers at ScreamFest this Tuesday night. BENEATH has the honor of opening the festival.

I have yet to see either of these films. So if you attend, you may not want to sit next to me. I’m rather a nuisance. Yes I will shout things at the screen, I will scream, and I will grab your arm and beg “Why am I here? Why am I watching this? Help me!”
Happy Horror Season,
