TFW 2015: Skeet Ulrich Tells Us His Favorite Scary Movie

I attended the 2015 Texas Frightmare Weekend the same way I do every year. This year I decided to come up with a plan of attack for my interviews and convention coverage. One of the main themes of this year's Texas Frightmare Weekend was the Scream films. I decided to ask all the actors at the event a two-part question that was relevant to the Scream theme: "What's your favorite scary movie and why?" 

Visit the World of Sherlock Holmes at Perot Museum Dallas, TX

Ever since childhood, I’ve loved the character of Sherlock Holmes. Whether it was the movies or books I was enjoying, I was fascinated by the mysteries and adventures the World’s Greatest Detective and his companion Dr. Watson embarked upon. I’d stay up late at night reading The Hound of the Baskervilles or taking in any one of the films starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. 

TFW 2015: Lord Scourge Speaks! What's His Favorite Scary Movie?

I attended the 2015 Texas Frightmare Weekend and thought it made sense to post the first video of this year's video interviews in conjunction with "May the 4th Be With You Day" and "Revenge of the 5th" Day. One of the themes of this year's convention was the Scream films. I had the opportunity to interview actor and model Joseph Gatt, who voiced Lord Scourge in Star Wars: The Old Republic. He's been in movies like Thor, Star Trek Into Darkness, Pulse, Banshee, Teen Wolf, and more. Gatt also voices legendary characters in other video games such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and God of War: Ascension.

Texas Frightmare Weekend Haunts Dallas, TX This Weekend

The beginning of May every year means one thing to me and thousands of other horror fanatics around the world. For the past ten years, it’s meant we’ve arrived at another annual Texas Frightmare Weekend. It’s the only event in the Lone Star State that brings together genre actors and artists that we not only grew up watching but are still enjoying on the silver screen and television. 2015’s convention lineup is no different as we welcome actors from Scream, The Craft, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2, and Phantasm to name a few. The terrifying fun kicks off this coming Friday, May 1st at the Hyatt Regency located on the grounds of the DFW Airport.

Comic Review: Convergence: Swamp Thing #1

DC Comics really goes the distance with issue #1 of Convergence: Swamp Thing. They did everything right from the vintage-looking title design and coloring to the interior pages of the first chapter of a two-part limited series. The publisher recruited character co-creator Len Wein and partnered him with penciller Kelley Jones, who brought his own vision of the creature to life in the 1990s. The only way this debut could have been any more legitimate is if they got the other half of the creative team (Bernie Wrightson) to draw the book. Maybe I’m asking too much now.

A "Star Wars: Death Troopers" Movie Brought to Us By Blumhouse and Lucasfilm? Yes, Please!

The stand-alone films in the Star Wars Universe will be framed by the title Star Wars Anthology. The first of the movies to be announced and receive a teaser trailer and showcase concept art is Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, which centers on a rogue band of resistance fighters who unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans and bring new hope to the galaxy. Now is the perfect time for someone high up in the ranks of Lucasfilm to pitch the idea of a Death Troopers film to the powers-that-be.

Comic Review: Convergence #1

Convergence is officially underway in the Universe of DC Comics as issue 1 hits newsstands. We’ve heard it before and I’m sure we’ll all hear it again. The ever so familiar catch phrase, “Everything we know is about to change,” is delivered once again. Can we truly expect something that will alter everything we know and keep it that way forever? Probably not, but the whole temporarily earth-shattering event can be a lot of fun to take in as it unfolds before us in the meantime. 

Graphic Review: Batman Beyond 2.0 Volume Two: Justice Lords Beyond

DC Comics proves once again that if you can’t continue producing a television series, the next best thing to do is keep it alive via the printed (or digital) page. Batman Beyond 2.0 Volume Two: Justice Lords Beyond brings together issues 9 through 12 of the popular 1990's series. The graphic novel collection gives the world of Terry McGinnis an even more epic feeling than ever before through merging alternate timelines together to cataclysmic results.

Interview: Seth Green Talks About Animated Family Film Yellowbird

Seth Green needs no introduction to anyone reading this. He’s an accomplished actor, writer, director, and producer for many high-profile movies and television shows we’ve all grown up watching. Green's acted onscreen in everything from the cult classic Can’t Hardly Wait to Scooby-Doo2: Monsters Unleashed and as Oz the werewolf in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He’s the voice of several legendary characters in such animated projects as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., and many more. Mr. Green’s also headed up Robot Chicken since its debut in 2005.

I had the opportunity to interview Green about his latest voice acting role as the lead character in Yellowbird. He shared with me how he got involved in the film, why he relates to the bird, and the message of the movie. Mr. Green also comments on the making of Yellowbird. 

Graphic Review: Batman ’66 Meets the Green Hornet

DC and Dynamite Comics takes us back in time with a reunion of two dynamic duos that many will say is long overdue. Batman ’66 Meets the Green Hornet sees the two pair of heroes and their sidekicks, Robin and Kato, joining forces to battle evil for a third time. Since all the actors from the television show have either aged far beyond being able to don their respectable costumes or passed on, it’s a dream pairing that could only be made possible in the pages of a comic book.
