BLOODLINE – Vengeance From Beyond ( Italian Giallo w/english subtitles) Chemical Burn release

Well,If you are a fan of Dario Argento or Lucio Fulci “ENJOY” !
This is one subtitled nightmare of a flick,Watched in broad daylight and glanced at internet to calm my nerves during the plot unfolding.
There is twins who communicate,Even when one is dead.
A porno being filmed like a snuff film.
Zombies being made by a madman in a mask with some kind of mean dart gun as a numbing tool.

DIVE BOMBER – Audiobook that takes to the skies and then drops,drops and pulls up to Action Ecstasy !

Stars: Max Williams (Bullet In The Face ) &  Kristin Proctor.

It’s so obvious that Author Hubbard knew his way around planes,The story just takes you into the air and rarely drops except with a perfect landing.

This struggling airplane developer is making a us bomber ,That is better than all the worlds competition.

It’s exciting action/adventure and you (the listener) feels the take-offs and speed of wanting to have the plane that will beat any ship at sea & air.

Side note: Evidently when the pulp story was published ,A movie was made with Errol Flynn & Fred McMurray and they forgot to have Hubbard sign off on screenplay and owed him post filming and well things got fixed at a later date, LOL !


DOUG JONES —Is THE Reason to watch Star Trek : Discovery !


Although known mostly for his iconic work under prosthetics, such as the floppy zombie ‘Billy’ in the Halloween classic Hocus Pocus, or the lead Spy Morlock in the 2001 remake The Time Machine, he has also performed as ‘himself’ in such highly-rated films as Adaptation with Nicholas Cage, Mystery Men with Ben Stiller, Batman Returns with Danny DeVito. But it is his sensitive and elegant performance as ‘Abe Sapien’ in Hellboy, which stormed to the top of the U.S. box office . He renewed his association with Mexican director Guillermo del Toro when he starred in the title role of ‘Pan’ in del Toro’s Spanish language fantasy/horror project El Laberinto del Fauno (Pan’s Labyrinth). He also has a cameo in the film as ‘The Pale Man’, a gruesome creature with a penchant for eating children. Working once more under heavy prosthetics in both roles, he also was required to learn huge chunks of dialogue in archaic Spanish – which he did perfectly.

1)You seem to become these characters beyond the make-up,Study the script or what research ?
I do indeed study the script! Even though acting for me is a full body experience, I am a lover of words as well. And the writer’s intent is always important to me and the characters I play. I also need to do back story research when playing an already established character (like Abe Sapien, Silver Surfer, Cesare) or if I’m re-creating a real person’s story. Physical preparation is also mandatory if I’m about to delve into a heavily made-up human animal hybrid or other-worldly creature ….. how does he gesture, how does he squat, how does he walk, all that.

2) What is it like to be on covers of magazines,But Its not exactly you ?
(Chuckle) It has been such a rush to see myself on magazine covers, even when made-up beyond recognition! I have the joy of knowing our work is being recognized, while at the same time being able to annonymously run to do errands around town!

3) Ever gained weight,LOL ?
Never. The most I ever weighed was in college at 155 lbs., and that took a lot of work. I naturally settle in around 143. I know, for a guy at 6′ 3″ that is freakish, but I’ve learned to embrace my own body and celebrate the skinny. Seems to work for me now.

4) Abe Sapien( sea creature from Hell Boy),You and He have quite a history ?
I LOVE Abe. He is in the top 3 of my favorite characters I’ve ever played. I pick my favorite characters by how much I’d like to hang out with them myself, and Abe is so smart, graceful, elegant, and gentlemanly …. As Guillermo del Toro says, “the Fred Astaire of creatures”. I’ve so loved getting to know Abe even more as we’ve voiced the animated HELLBOY features, “Sword of Storms” and “Blood & Iron”, and I am so excited about all he gets to do in the big sequel, “Hellboy 2: The Golden Army”.

5) Do you see much of the cast,When in character ?
Oh yes! I am usually in a make-up and costume, playing opposite my costars there on set with the whole gang. Contrary to some rumors, I have yet to ever do motion capture work off on a green screen set, away from the other cast members for a movie.

6)So,You are the Silver Surfer in new Fantastic Four Movie,Do you finally get the girl ?
Well, I don’t want to hint either way on this one, so I’ll ask you to join us in the cinemas on June 15th 2007 to see just what becomes of the Silver Surfer’s relationship with the Fantastic 4, with Sue Storm probably being able to strike the most significant cord in his soul.

7) What is the BEST of Douglas on/off set ?
My proudest moment on set is probably being able to pull off the role of ‘Pan’ with 5 hours of make-up and costuming coupled with learning REAMS of dialogue in Spanish …. I think the most difficult thing I’ve ever done on film. Off set? Probably proudest of those moments when I set aside time to listen to the needs of a young person and offer any life experience I can from my own successes, or more importantly from my failures.

8) …What would be the WORST of you on/off ?
My worst on-set ever had to be an embarrassing jacuzzi scene in a horrible straight-to-video horror film in 1987 that shall remain nameless. My worst moment off-set would be as I glance to my left at this moment in my home office and see the ever growing pile of unanswered fan mail with signed picture requests …. I DO mean to get to them one day soon!

9) Have you played more than one character in a film ?
Only in “Pan’s Labyrinth” so far. However, look for me to be at least 3 characters in “Hellboy 2″ …. Abe, a gate-keeper for the bad guys, and a dark angel.

10) What words of wisdom come from the” Doug Jones Experience ” ?
Hmmm …. hoping I can inspire here …. let’s see ….. How about, Live every day as though it was your last, letting no one in your life wonder if they are loved. Know that God made you with a purpose, and you do matter to the world around you. All words I must alert myself to remember, too.(copyright 2009,reprinted/edited 2018)




Horror Grindshow Double Feature /Bloody Mary-Lite/Suitable for Murder / /Dodge City: A Spaghetto Western /Mutant Species /A Matter of Honor /Future Zone /My Science Project /What Waits Below/TRON/”Disneyland” (2 episodes, 1980)/GUS /”Shazam!” /The Island at the Top of the World
1)Do you miss Hollywood ? For Filming ?
I miss the old Hollywood that I came in on the tail of in 1969. I have no use for, or desire to, ever live out there, again. There is nothing about the “new” Hollywood and it’s radical activism and decaying morals that a boy raised in Alabama can find it in himself to identify with, or for that matter, even care to determinate with, much less raise a family around.
As for filming, I prefer the artistic freedom of the Independent, light cavalry, guerilla approach that I’m enjoying out here in the hinterlands, rather than the union-heavy, mega-budget overture favored by the quagmire, brutish dinosaurs affectionally known as the Hollywood studios.

2) You have at least 3 movies coming out soon, Details ? “Twist Of The Vampire”(aka Horror Grind show Double Feature),Bloody Mary-Lite and Suitable for Murder…
I get offed in two of them (TWIST OF THE VAMPIRE and SUITABLE FOR MURDER) and befuddled in the other [as the Devil in BLOODY MARY-LITE (an urban faerie tale)]. BLOODY MARY-LITE is still in post production while the SUITABLE and TWIST films are completed. MARY is a dark comedic, modern, noir fairy tale, with some gore; TWIST is a dark comedic, 40’s style noir, detective fare, also with some gore; and SUITABLE is a modern, action drama with — you guessed it — a lot of gore.

3) What is it like to be a ICON ? Definitely Shazam, Tron and for me, What Waits Below characters leave a lasting impression?
First of all, thank you for the kind entitlement, but I just feel very fortunate that I got to portray an ICONIC figure (not to mention my childhood hero) like Captain Marvel. As to what it feels like, I truly don’t know. You wake up in the morning and go outside and much to your surprise the sun has come up, again. The birds are still in the trees and singing. The ass&^%#’s car that took up two parking spaces in front of your building the night before is still there. The neighbor’s dog has taken a dump on your lawn — for the godzillienth time. And you still can taste the hydrocarbons in the air as you clear the flim out of your chest and ptoowie it out into the street to be slimed onto the tire of some passing auto that’s belching smoke like a five dollar rent-a-car.
Ah, hell, it’s good just to be alive. it’s a great feeling. I just wonder if Clayton Moore, Johnny Weismuller and Steve Reeves, among others, had these same reflections about me when I was growing up. Hah!
Bottom line is: I reckon we all have a role model we look up to, whether it’s a movie star, rock star, religious figure, your father and mother, etc. I had The Lone Ranger, Tarzan, Hercules and Captain Marvel (as well as dad and mom). Others had Superman, Batman, Spiderman, etc. No matter who or what, though, the Universe keeps expanding — and nobody gets out alive. And everybody is somebody’s hero in some form or other. So, to answer your question, “what’s it like to be an icon?” well, sports fans, your guess is as good as mine, cause I guarantee ya — unbeknownst to you — there’s somebody out there that looks up to you with a swelling chest and an adoring eye and you woke up and saw the same sun that I did. Now, that kinda makes me feel humble. How ‘bout you?

4) Do you prefer: Acting, Writing, Producing, Directing ???
Do I like king crab, lobster, scallops or shrimp? Well, most certainly, but they all have qualities that I prefer at different times and on different occasions. And depending on the project, there are times I would prefer to have acting over directing, or producing over writing, or perhaps, even all combined into one unique dish. And at the proper times they have all had their excellent qualities presented to me during the course of my film career and they all have their own artistically tantalizing challenges. But to put them in an order of the most viscerally stimulating and gratifying, I would have to put acting first, then directing, writing and, lastly, producing.

5) What is the BEST of “The BOSS twick” On/Off set?
One occasion occurred during the run of a play I did with Dorothy McGuire, “Sweet Bird Of Youth.” I was told one night after a performance by a fellow actor in the play that he enjoyed being on stage in the role of the Heckler every night just to watch me do the scene where I, as Tom, Jr., blister the character, Chance Wayne, about giving my sister Heavenly a “disease of a whore.” He said each night he felt in his gut that I was really going to rip this guy’s head off. (Even the actor playing Chance said, he loved the petrified feeling for his life he would get during that scene.) But what was really the best was when these guys later told me what a pleasure it was to work with me. Coming from fellow actors who are just passing acquaintances, that feels really good.
After a live performance — or doing a film — the praise is always appreciated, but because of the way people are in such gatherings, it should mostly be perceived, more or less, as a social nicety. Ergo, I’ve never heard of any actor having someone come up to them after a performance and saying, “your acting stunk.” So, I’m sure there are those out there that despise me, just not to my face.

6) What is the WORST?
The worst was being fired from Shazam! for a trumped up reason. Saying that I was holding out for more money, when in fact, it was due to me being at the doctors office being treated for an on-the-set injury the day before. (I was doing a take off when my stunt boxes collapsed on me.) This was a show that I busted my butt on to make it the best it could be, and these executive producers sold me (and the show) down the river out fears from their own projected, petty grudges. (I later heard that they absolutely despised my lawyer of the time.) I go into greater detail of the incident and the aftermath — with actual photos of the injury as it happened — in my forthcoming book “Myth, Magic, and a Mortal.”

7) What can be said of working with the DISNEY company?
I had the great fortune to work in the pre-Eisner Disney when it was like being in a family — not a hatchet studio when the Disney family was pushed out. It was a great company to be a part of and afforded me a lifelong friend in Bill Shepard, who along with Marvin Schnall, ran the casting department, at the time. The last movie I did for Disney was “The Secret of Lost Valley” that Vic Morrow directed just before his tragic death on the “Twilight Zone” set.

8) How do you stay in such great shape ?
Moose Tracks ice-cream and running my ass off — literally.

9) YOUTUBE –Good or bad ?
Both. Good and awful.

10) Mr. Bostwick thanks for this chance to talk with a ICON, Any last words for fans or collectors ?
Well, from one ICON?? to another, he he … like you, I always look forward to meeting and talking with as many folks as I can, while I can. This is what I enjoyed when I did my first appearance with C.C. Beck, Clayton Moore, Kirk Allen and Noel Neill, among others, and it still holds true with me today.(reprinted from blog,2009)

RICHARD NORTON – SUICIDE SQUAD stunt supervisor…He’s NO Joker !


1) Sir,You started as a bodyguard for Rolling Stones,Fleetwood Mac and Abba-Any funny stories ?
Wow, I don’t even know where to start with this one. I had so many great and wonderful times on tour with some of the legends of Rock and Roll. Okay, one funny time I remember was when I was on the road with the legendary Joe Cocker back in the 70’s. One night my partner Bob Jones and I, decided to take Joe and some of the band out for the night in Sydney. So, after some bar hopping, we ended up in a bar that had a drag queen show, as you do when you are bored and looking for a different night on the town. Right? Hah! Anyway, the whole night ended up with a whole bunch of people in Joe’s suite for a late night drink. Joe was pretty drunk by now and as the night moved on, I noticed him on the floor in a deep and meaningful conversation with a really beautiful blonde. All was going well until I see Joe starting to nibble on the girls neck and get pretty flirty. I decided it was time to lean in and whisper in Joe’s ear that the ‘blonde’ he was with was in fact a guy. Well, to that, Joe loudly protested Nooo!. So, back to his flirting behavior he went, until finally, in the middle of a pretty passionate embrace, this ‘Blonde’ suddenly, in a voice deeper than mine, says,”You know Joe, I really am a man”. Well, you think you have seen Joe fidget with himself on stage whilst singing a song, that was nothing to the astonishment and shock on Joe’s face at the realization of the situation he had gotten himself in. Bob and I were on the floor in stitches, laughing our butts off. Of course, we took it on ourselves to remind Joe on a daily basis for the rest of the tour of his little ‘adventure. Another funny time was whilst on tour with The Rolling Stones back in 1973. The Stones tour manager, Peter Rudge, got into a little practical joke war with our aussie tour manager and after a while it got to be serious business. So serious that the aussie’s actually went as far as to get into Peter Rudge’s hotel suite and open every drawer and closet. They then acquired over 300 pigeons which were let loose in Peter’s hotel room. Well, you can imagine what the room was like when the Stones tour manager finally got back to his room that night. Everything thing he owned from his clothes to personal possessions was covered in pigeon shit. I mean everything. Too funny.

2) Seems you worked with Cynthia Rothrock, Chuck Norris and Jackie Chan the most;Can you describe each in one sentence ?
Cynthia and I were once described in an English magazine as ‘The Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire of Martial Arts movies’, and I think that aptly describes the wonderful relationship that Cynthia and I had whilst working together all those years. Chuck Norris is the type of loyal and principled person that only comes along but rarely in one’s lifetime and I feel fortunate to call have him as a dear and respected friend. Jackie Chan to me is the absolute true Maestro of martial arts and action movies.

3) You are probably the most articulate of Martial Artist,Will you or have you written a film or directed one ?
No, I haven’t written or plan to write a movie script anytime soon. I think script writing is a real art and should be left to those who have a real passion in that area. I mean I do know a good script when I read one and feel more than capable of suggesting modifications to the way a scene or character is written. But that’s about the extent of it for me. Now Directing is another story. I feel I will definitely direct something in the not too distant future as that is something I could handle. I have done a considerable amount of 2nd Unit directing and must say I really enjoyed the process very much. I think I have waited this long because, as with writing, I feel Directing also takes a considerable amount of knowledge and talent that is all to often, taken too lightly. I can’t tell you how many sets I have been on where you have a young Director who is technically proficient, but has absolutely no clue as to performance. It is one thing to know a bit about lighting and where to place a camera, but to really understand the actors craft and how to help with choices in a scene and make a scene ‘work’, now that takes a different type of skill. If people could realisethe amount of study and time some of the great actors put into their study of character breakdown etc, they would better appreciate the skill level necessary for a Director to be able to fulfill his task of being the ‘conductor’ of the movie process, capable of bringing so many aspects of film making into the kind of harmony that makes for a great movie experience. I feel that having spent so many years now on movie sets has at least given me the basic skills necessary to give directing the ‘right’ movie a shot. We will see.

4) Any major injuries or accidents happen to you ?
You know, I feel I have been incredibly lucky in that respect and have yet to sustain anything serious. I of course have had my share of knocks and bruises. I had my nose broken whilst shooting Mr.. Nice Guy with Jackie Chan. Oh yes, I also got hit in the head by a sword wielding ‘friend’ Cynthia, whilst shooting an action movie in Hong Kong. That was mainly because of the ridiculous hours you spend daily on set in Hong Kong movies. We had been shooting fight stuff for over 17 hours one night and Cynthia and I were getting pretty tired. I was supposed to duck and thought I was and she thought she was accurate with the sword but none the less, I copped it above the eye. The producer took me to hospital where I was given 8 stitches without any anesthetic, as they didn’t want my eye to swell up. Then it was back on the set within half an hour with my head turned away from camera and on with the fight. Hey, I’ve always said, it’s not table tennis. Doing these kinds of movies always leaves you open to the possibility of some chance of injury. Wouldn’t trade it for the world though.

5) Cynthia Rothrock, Has a new comicbook,Will you be making a drawn appearance in its pages ?
Well, now this is the first I’ve heard about a new comic book. You see, all this talk about my dear friend Cynthia and I haven’t even received the courtesy phone call about my character. That’s it then, we’re through.

6) You fight choreographed THE CONDEMNED with Stone Cold Steve Austin & Vinnie Jones. Are wrestlers in the spot of martial artists as action stars ? Any gossip on set ?
I don’t think that wrestlers are so much in the spot of martial artists as much as just another good pool of talent suitable for those types of movies. So many of the WWE stars for instance are such big, well built and physically talented guys with an already built in huge fan base. I mean you know that an entrepreneur the caliber of Vince McMahon readily recognizes the money making star quality of some of his stars like Stone Cold Steve Austin. Look at the huge numbers the WWE super shows generate both live and on PPV television and to not take advantage of the huge exposure their stars have and give them a crack at the silver screen would not be in any way logical in a business sense. I should say that the pre buzz on Steve’s performance in ‘The Condemned’ is really good. The movie has a theatrical release date of April 27th and by reports so far it has turned out to be terrific. I mean we know that there will be a certain amount of great action and fight scenes, because I choreographed them,c’mon, just kidding. But the main excitement comes from the fact that there is a great story to go along with the action. Hey, go figure, some great drama in an action flic. I had a great time during the shooting of The Condemned. Vinnie Jones, from ‘Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ and ”Snatch co stars and was a hoot to work with. He is a non stop practical joker and just one of the ‘lads’. By the way, that explains my new short hair do as I ended up as Fight Double for Vinnie. Anyway,one day he heard that Steve was going to sleep overnight in his on set trailer because we were out on location and it saved a considerable trip back to the hotel. Well, Vinnie waited for the opportune moment and snuck into Steve’s bus and took nearly an hour covering the opening of Steve’s toilet with glad wrap. I mean he told me he was meticulous in getting rid of every wrinkle in the glad wrap so that it made it all but invisible. So that night, Steve has apparently gone to take a piss and ended up peeing all over his pants and feet. Steve was hilarious when he was telling us,”I was suddenly getting drowned in my own piss and thinking, ‘what the F**k, I’m aiming dead center in the bowl. Of course from then on it was war. Everybody was totally on alert to watch their backs.(and their feet.) Again, I really believe this is going to be a great action movie, so keep an eye out for it when it is released in April.

7) Why do you think you have played so many villains ,like in ROAD HOUSE 2 ?
Hey, I’m always asked that and yet I’ve played a lot of good guys. How about Rage and Honor 1&2 and China O’Brien and Under the Gun? Okay, so I have also played more than my share of ‘baddie’s’. I’m not sure why but I certainly don’t mind. Playing the bad guy can be so much more fun as if you are the hero, you have to be so careful that every thing you do is liked by the audience, whereas you can do almost anything as the ‘baddie’, and as long as the audience hate your guts at the end of the movie you have done your job. Of course in Hong Kong movies, the ‘gweilo’, or western actor, is more than often the baddie as of course they want to see you beaten up by the Asian good guy. I must admit though that I have always said that the downside of being the villain in these flics is that you usually get beaten up or killed and you never, ever get the gorgeous heroine. Oh well, as long as they pay me, right?

8) You have a slogan like most action stars,After hitting the hero ; You quip ” PAINFUL “So,Where are the t-shirts and bumper stickers,etc?
Hey, don’t laugh. I mentioned your idea to a friend of mine who is pushing me to get some merchandise out there and he really liked the idea. This could be our ticket out of here, what do you think? Hah!

9) Do you have a flashy move,For example: Jean-Claude Van Damme with his leg splits/Chuck Norris and his kicks/Steven Seagal with that arm twisting thing ?

I don’t feel I have any one flashy signature move. I do know I have fast hands and probably like quick and realistic hand combinations. I also feel my moves tend towards being a bit more ‘realistic’ than some as the one thing I do know from my experience as a bouncer and personal body-guard is that real street fights are anything but clean and pretty so I like putting a kind of untidiness into my choreography when given the chance. You know, make it look gutsy and real. This is why I particularly enjoyed the action in the latest James Bond movie. I know it is still over the top because it is still a movie afterall, but the fights had a great roughness and raw quality to them that I felt really worked. I must say I am so over the ‘wire’ work seen in so many fight movies of late. I just want it to get back to people that are great at what they do just keeping their feet on the ground and displaying really good practical and powerful moves that I feel would be to some extent believable in the real world. Think of the way they shot Bruce Lee in the classic, ‘Enter the Dragon’.

10) HERE,Is your chance.What do you want to leave with your fans,Some nugget of truth,or what ?
You know, I started my Martial Arts training at age 11 and honestly just wanted to be the best Martial Artist I could be. Now everything great that has happened in my life, including working on wonderful locations with terrific actors in so many countries in the world and touring with so many of the legends of Rock and Roll in their time, has just come as a result of having a passion for my martial arts endeavors and pursuing that dream. I wouldn’t honestly trade my past experiences in life with anyone and that says something about passion. So I simply implore those of you who feel that their lives are full of drudgery or whatever to just find something to be truly passionate about. Something that makes you excited about getting up out of bed each morning and counter balance the aspects in your life associated with the struggle of ‘just making a living’. But do it now. Don’t wait, as one thing I know for sure is that we are here for a good time, not a long time. One little thing I would like to finish with is to suggest to your readers to get a copy of the DVD, ‘The Secret’. I honestly believe the thoughts in this little doco can be literally life changing.

Thanks for the opportunity to do this little interview Chris and I wish all your readers the very best in whatever they choose to accomplish.
Warmest wishes,
Richard Norton.(originally blogged (c) 2009)

JOHN JOHNSON— So will movies about BATH SALTS or PLAN 9 cause controversy ???


1) Bath Salts: The web-series is either a stroke of timely genius or youre one sick @%^*+ ? EXPLAIN please ?

Well when Spade closed down, I loved the idea of a fan interactive show and wanted to start up a new one. With all the Urban Legends surrounding Bath Salts, I thought that’s the way to go! Zombies, end of the world, and conspiracy theories, this would write itself! And I am a little sick….

2) Mr. Johnson you are prolific and very talented,Think you’ll ever get a movie budget ?

Thank you for the kind words. And as you mention it, I did! The remake of Plan 9 From Outer Space I directed entitled Plan 9 just wrapped in production and is well into post and has a larger budget then all the films I made prior put together! Hopefully I won’t screw it up!

3) DARKEN was about a captive Unicorn,Do okay with ?

Hmm. I am not sure I understand the question fully. So I am gonna answer Red and 46.

4) On IMDB,People are commenting on your PLAN 9,Scared ?

Absolutely. This looks to be the largest release, production, budget, script, cast I have ever worked with. I will be hiding in a closet on opening night.

5) BEST of Johnny J On/Off the set ?

My Best. When we wrap on time, and the crew and cast laughed all the way through. And it is a huge rush when you are driving home and you feel you really made something out of a scene.

6) WORST of Johnny J On/Off set ?

Too Tired to get my head straight. I wear a lot of hats, and sometimes it can drain you to where you miss a detail in one of your positions. This I hate. I which it had a face so I could punch it in the kisser!

7) Ever heard of the DC Comic’s  MARTIAN MANHUNTER ? Your REEL Name ?

Ha. Yes I have. I am a huge DC fan. Sadly, thus is the name I was born with. But I can morph into my martian self from time to time, so we have that in common!

8) One Sentence Descriptions – Brian Krause________,Mister Lobo_________,Whisper Nicole___________,Monique Gata Dupree________ and Conrad Brooks______.

Brian Krause, a dangerously strong actor and is highly recommended by me to work with! Mister Lobo, a very funny man and creator. Whisper Nicole, very stunning and kooky little gal. Monique Dupree, a incredible professional and marketer as well as a good friend. Conrad Brooks, a hero of the genre and sweet, very kind dapper man!

9) How are you able to be so active and the stunts and the wearing of many hats in film production ?

Bath Salts. And other than that, It may look like magic, but I can’t take all the credit. I have an amazing crew that picks up all the slack. They also pick me up when I fall!

10) What is the End Thought,Your best statement for the masses ?

My name is John Johnson, and I deal in guilty pleasures.

SCARLET FRY – A “Classic” Icon stays in the Micro-Cinema Game !

Scarlet Fry
Crushed Velvet (post-production)

Homeless Schizo, Paul

2013 Voices from the Grave
Book keeper

2010 Nightmare Alley

2007 Junkfood Horrorfest
1) What is it like to be a Micro-Cinema Icon/Legend ?
It’s a great feeling to be known in the Genre, And to be called an Icon & a legend Is a great honor, All i Need are some hot groupies and a big paycheck & I’d say fantastic haha.
In all honesty it’s been a dream of mine since i was a kid, just to be able to say i did it , not i wish i did it. I just did a radio interview & came on right after Phillip Friedman who played the scary old woman in insidious, It felt really good to be in that kind of company. Now if I could just be a victim in one Friday the 13th movie I could die happy.

2) Is it easier to make your films Now or Then ?
I think standards in filmmaking have changed, B-Movies are a lot more professionally shot these days with all the new technology, in the old days it was a lot easier to make a good bad movie, now days you have to almost make it so bad it’s good on purpose, and then market it as such. When we did Nightmare Alley we wanted it to be Fun, we never expected to be thought of as brilliant filmmakers. Im very influenced by guys like John Waters & Herschell Gordon Lewis because they broke the rules. If you walk across a light on my set and don’t say crossing i can care less.

3) BEST of ‘Scarlet’ On/Off set ? Best on set Im very easy to work with, like i said if you don’t have gaffer tape I don’t mind, Im not Mr technical, yes movies are hard work but should also be fun, if you know what your doing and you have a vision then its going to get done so why be a hard guy to work with, its your baby not theirs. Off set Im just an average guy, & easy to get along with, & Of course I love a good scary movie.

4) WORST of ‘Scarlet On/Off set ? Worst on set sometimes I get lazy the DP may ask me to look over a shot & I’ll say “is it good” & he will say “I think it looks good” & I’ll say “It’s a take”, thats something i need to work on. I met an actress Katie MacDowell who was great to work with because she gave me some great ideas, and that was really refreshing when your feeling tired, and somebody on set says “Hey lets try this out & it works” Its very cool when that happens. It’s always good to be open minded & take suggestions. I think a bad thing i did in my early days was argue with critics, i learned never to do that again. I love getting a bad review now because i realize i got a reaction & thats all that matters.

5) One Sentence Descriptions – Walter Ruether_A down to earth everyday guy, Im nothing like the Scarlet Fry character in real life._____________,Calico Cooper_A blast to work with and a good sport.____________,Ron Jeremy A funny guy, i got to squirt zombie juice on him in a scene i did in a film called Blood Moon Rising, Yes i officially squirt on Ron Jeremy Sorta speak How cool is that.________,Late Don Dohler_I Never met him._________ and Tiffany Shepis__I was in a film with her but didn’t get a chance to meet her.________.

6) Do you miss VCR s ? Yes i especially miss video stores, If we still had a store on every corner like we did back in the 80’s we’d all be rich. I based the wrap around story of Scream Machine on a couple who rents a cursed VCR and it comes with a bunch of tapes, which will be the vignettes.

7) SCREAM MACHINE gossip ? Behind The Scenes ?? As far as Gossip we may have a big up and coming actor in the film. Let’s just say he’s in the film and is awaiting some huge hollywood parts which i need to keep a secret right now. The filming went pretty smooth, I love it when my actors want to use fake names. Being in my film is such an honor they need to change their names in case they go get a real job like in politics or Law haha. I remember one girls boyfriend said to her “Are you sure you wanna be in this movie, what if you run for president someday, I spit my Starbucks all over the set haha.

8) VOICES FROM THE GRAVE tidbits,nuggets of Making Of ? I was in The film as a Book keeper Voices from the grave is another Anthology , but i only act in it. One of the vignettes was written by Gary Brandner author of the Howling, it was very well done & is a more serious and scary film then Nightmare Alley was. Laurence Holloway co produced both films & played a small part in Scream Machine. I really look forward to the release of Voices from the grave, Director Richard Stoudt is somebody your going to wanna keep your eye on, he’s got talent.

9) Ever wanna make a HOLLYWOOD Big-Budget flick ? Of course Im still trying to figure that out, if anybody out there wants to fund me , please let me know I got a great idea for a film, Picture Black Swan meets the Re-animator. I got some other ideas that would make you laugh your ass off but I’m not sure the world is ready yet. I wanted to Make Bath Salt Zombies but somebody beat me to it. Other titles i have in the future incluse Slum goddess from the lower east side & La Creesha from the black lagoon, all kinds of great B Movie madness, then i may bring Scarlet Fry back into the mix and host another anthology when i’m 70 that will be really creepy.

10) Leave us with some of your knowledge _Do it because you love it, not for the money, Just because you got a DVD distributed doesn’t mean your gonna hit it big, you have to really market yourself, which is a whole other ballgame. If you have the passion & want to make films just do it, and stop talking about doing it. Im very happy to say I have 4 films under my belt all in distribution. Alice cooper once said in an interview everybody should have an Alice it would be great. I invented Scarlet Fry & I can say The thought actually became a reality through taking action, I can hold my DVD in my hand or watch it on Netflix & say to myself I freaking did it. This all started as an idea in my bedroom or drunk in a bar & all of a sudden somebody in Brazil is asking me to sign a DVD for them thats what feels so good. It just goes to show you the power of Film.

1) Have heard you referred to The ‘TOM HANKS’ of Micro-Cinema,You ok with that comparison ?

I have heard that once before, and I think it’s just about the best compliment a male actor could get. Since I started acting, Tom Hanks has been my muse. From what I’ve been told by people who have worked with him is that he is very fun and professional to work with. In between takes he would be joking around with the actors, but as soon as it’s time to for the camera to roll, he would switch gears and be very professional. I see myself the same way, and I respect the fact that he is so successful for being an actor, not a media headline. I’d love to aspire to the level of clout that Tom Hanks has achieved.
If you are reading this Tom, I’ll totally be your padawan! 🙂

2) Being typecast as the ‘EVERYMAN’ in films,Could you do much Action-Adventure or Horror ?

I see myself eventually gravitating towards Action – Adventure. I’m a huge fantasy buff and one of my goals as an actor is to play the lead in some fantasy based Action – Adventure. Hey Marvel, *cough*An Iron Fist movie needs to be made *cough* *cough*

I love acting in Horror just because everything is just so raw, but I don’t watch much if it.

3) One Sentence Descriptions – MATTHEW SCONCE_________,BARRY RICHEY___________,TRAVIS CLUFF______,IAN PUGH___________ and BRI PASLEY_____________.

So I’ll preface this question with this: I feel that alot of these attributes fit multiple people that we are talking about, and It’s boring to just put AMAZING for all of them, so I’ll try to sub categorize amazing for each of them.

Matt Sconce: Epic! (Haha, bit of an inside joke but I absolutely love Matt)

Barry Richey: Warm-Hearted

Travis Cluff: Inspiring

Ian Pugh: Creative

Bri Pasley: Schmexy

4) BEST of The ‘Jas ‘ On / Off Set ?

OnSet: Oh geez, I feel like some of these questions should be answered by somebody other than myself. When I dedicate myself to a project, I fully dedicate myself to that project. I help grip, do sound, or whatever the director needs to get the project done. I feel like my contributions help make the film that much better. I like to have a good time, keep things fun on set. Things can get dreary when you have been working 12+ hours. It’s always nice to reel people back into reality after they are slowly fading into the darkness.
OffSet: I do a lot of gaming, website designing and manage a local Geek Squad. I also play guitar and sing, and recently got back into song writing.

5) WORST of The ‘Jas’ On / Off Set ?

OnSet: Anyone who I have worked with can attest that I leave little que cards everywhere. The more lines I have, the more que cards are to be found.
OffSet: I have too many hobbies, and I can never seem to get quite good enough at any of them.

6) Ever Gonna Write or Direct ?

I’ve had creative itches in the past. I’ve written some music, short stories and poems. But I’m not sure if that is my primary focus. Maybe somewhere down the line or if I get a great concept in my head that I – just – have to share with the world.

7) Does a film have to go theatrical or is ‘Youtube’ good enough ?

Depends. If you are looking to make money, then theatrical is a better way to go. If you want it to get out to the viewers, youtube is good enough. And if it becomes popular enough on youtube, there is a chance for future projects to get theatrical distribution.

8) ‘ Shattered Flames ‘ is your latest film, Behind the scenes gossip ? Don’t you agree with this critic,That ‘Valentine’s Day’ would make it great for Amazon release ???

Haha, behind the scenes gossip? Ian, showed me his Star Wars collection… I’ve never been so happy in my life! In terms of gossip, everything went really smoothly and was very professional and fun. I feel like everybody who worked on the project became closer, which is awesome!
I think it would be a good release for Valentine’s Day since there is quite a bit of romance. But with the theme that Ian gave for it, I think Halloween is where it really shines.

9) Facial hair or Not ? Long Hair or short ?

Facial hair, short is what I am told I look best with. But my nerdy side has always wanted to grow it out long enough to be an elven archer Rivendell.

10) Well,Tell your soon-to-be fans…Something special?

I act it to bring light into peoples lives. If I can make at least one person forget about one negative thing for even just one minute, I feel I have been successful as an actor and everything has been worth it. Saying that I have fans takes that feeling and really validates it for me. Thank you so much for you support 🙂

BLACK SULTAN – audiobook has lots of horsemanship,guns blazing and some political adventure.

Stars the voices of : Corey Burton (voicing three of the major villains on “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” ,Count Dooku, Ziro the Hutt and Cad Bane) and John Mariano ( numerous video-games including Final Fantasy and Mafia 2).
Hubbard loved to tell tales about horse riding to an extreme,exotic locales,gun-play and nationalities with on going wars for centuries.
Corey Burton has the kind of voice the listener takes into his mind and listens to every nuance and catastrophe apparent.,
THE SECOND story is ‘Escape For Three’ kind a three musketeers turn on Foreign Legion that ends quite well in a humorous way.theblacksultanaudiobook
