Interview With Ray Santiago: Pablo From ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Ray Santiago as Pablo ash vs evil dead

It’s Ash vs Evil Dead week for me over at Geeks of Doom. I got a chance to interview the three lead cast members, reviewed the upcoming Blu-Ray release, and met Bruce Campbell at a book signing in New Jersey. One of the highlights was getting to speak to Ray Santiago, aka Ash’s trusted sidekick Pablo Simon Bolivar. The Bronx born actor has been a pivotal part of the Starz series since its premiere in 2015, supporting his “jefe” through plenty of deadite-fueled adventures. Last season on Ash vs Evil Dead, Pablo faced several challenges from his body being possessed by the Book of the Dead, to terrifying visions, and oh yeah, there was the bit about him dying. With Ash vs Evil Dead season 3 already completed and awaiting a release date from Starz, I spoke with Pablo himself about his experiences during season 2 and what to look forward to on the upcoming season.

Interview With Dana DeLorenzo: Kelly From ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Ash vs Evil Dead Dana Delorenzo Kelly

Dana DeLorenzo plays Kelly Maxwell, Ash’s sarcastic, kickass sidekick on Starz’s Ash vs Evil Dead. The Ohio-born actress spent her time in Season 2, getting doused with gallons of blood, wrestling puppets, and wielding many a gun to dispose of deadites alongside Ash (Bruce Campbell) and Pablo (Ray Santiago). Kelly quickly showed she would NOT be a damsel in distress, becoming one of the most badass women on TV, fighting evil, and matching Campbell one-liner for one-liner.

I first spoke with DeLorenzo last summer before Season 2 debuted. That first phone interview took place in the quietest place I could find in Universal Studios Orlando while on a family vacation. Almost a year later, with Season 2 about to hit DVD/Blu-Ray and with Season 3 awaiting a release date, I got to interview the cast of AvED again. This time, closer to home but still out and about, I spoke with the DeLorenzo about her time and experience on Ash vs Evil Dead as we all ready for its third season.

Interview With Bruce Campbell of ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Ash vs Evil Dead, Season 2 Episode 8

Who is Bruce Campbell? Seriously, this was a question I had to answer for my mother! Bruce Campbell is the King of the B-Actors, a true modern renaissance man. His IMDb page lists over a hundred credits. He’s a producer and director, as well as the author of a New York Times bestseller. But to fans around the world, the answer to the above question is simple: he’s Ash Williams, the chainsaw-handed lothario from the Evil Dead franchise. He’s also my favorite actor, someone I proudly waited 4 hours to meet at a horror convention, and whom I got to interview last year while on vacation with my family inside of Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando. That interview occurred over the phone in the quietest place I could find in a theme park known for loud attractions. A year later, lightning struck a second time. I was privileged to get to interview Mr. Bruce Campbell this month, and had time to discuss his upcoming book, as well as upcoming Season 3 of the Starz hit series Ash vs Evil Dead.

‘Atomic Blonde’ Interview: Director David Leitch On Use Of 80s Music, Stunts, ‘Deadpool 2’
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Atomic Blonde starring Charlize Theron

Creating killer soundtracks for a film appears to be in very high demand nowadays. From Guardians of the Galaxy to Baby Driver, the way that pop culture music is being used makes it feel as though they are a character in the film itself. And that couldn’t be truer for the upcoming action film Atomic Blonde.

Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, Atomic Blonde takes place just before the fall of the Berlin Wall, with Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) assigned to investigate the murder of a fellow MI6 agent, who was in possession of a top secret list, which in the wrong hands could expose every spy and operative. But as she searches for this elusive list, those working closest to her steer her in the wrong direction, in more ways than one. Without anyone to trust but herself, Lorraine finds out that getting that list and out of Berlin, alive, won’t be easy.

So just imagine the Cold War canvas of bright 80s neon lights with contemporary covers of 80s British pop songs and action sequences that could only come from the mind of John Wick co-director David Leitch. We had a chance to talk to the director about his approach to the film, what he pitched to the producers, his use of music, that incredible one-shot action scene, and Deadpool 2. Check out our full interview with him here below.

Interview: Meet Julie Ann Emery From AMC’s ‘Preacher’
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Preacher Julie Ann Emery

Preacher on AMC is one of the craziest hours on TV week in week out. Approaching the midway point of its second season, each episode has offered jaw dropping scenes, combining Tarantino level violence with laugh out loud comedy. This season features a search for God himself, an unstoppable cowboy from Hell, and actual Hell where a character called “Arseface” routinely talks with Hitler. This week at San Diego Comic Con, the gang from Preacher showed off a trailer for the second half of the season, which focused on The Grail, an evil organization competing with our heroes to find God. The only member of the Grail we got a close look at was Lara Featherstone (Julie Ann Emery). Back in episode 3, Emery first was a sultry blonde lounge singer who attracted the attention of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper). She proved way more than meets the eye, after sharing some intense screen time with Jesse, the audience watched as Lara ditched her wig and revealed her true identity. Last week, I got a chance to speak with Julie Ann Emery about her role on Preacher, the show, and her career.

Check out that interview below.

Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

John Carpenter's Tales of Science Fiction James Ninness

Few names are more synonymous with science fiction/horror than John Carpenter. With classic films like Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and They Live the man literally explored almost everything that can scare you. In recent years, the director has left the silver screen and gone to the page. Carpenter and his wife and collaborator Sandy King started Storm King Productions, and have started writing and producing graphic novels and comics like Asylum and Tales For a Halloween Night. Their newest venture is Tales of Science Fiction, a monthly anthology series, with the first story “Vault” by James Ninness. Ninness worked with Storm King on Tales for a Halloween Night and has created comics Mythoi and inSanity, AZ. I got a chance to speak with Ninness about his upcoming Carpenter collaboration, which is debuting this week as well as his career, influences, and future.

Interview With The ‘Sharknado’ Series’ Baddest Momma – Tara Reid
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Tara Reid Sharknado

It’s Summer! That means sun, beaches, blockbuster movies, and of course… shark infested tornadoes! That’s right, it’s time for another Sharknado! Back in 2013, the original Syfy channel film from the schlock studio kings The Asylum debuted, and became an instant hit on social media developing a huge following on twitter. The film’s two big stars were 90s icons Ian Ziering (90210) as Fin Shepard and Tara Reid (American Pie) as his ex-wife April Wexler. The craze around the first film has led to a new sequel each year since then, each one more ridiculous than the one before, and each featuring more and more celebrity cameos. The Sharknado films have taken these characters to space and back, across the United States, and now in the 5th installment, Global Swarming, around the world. Geeks of Doom got a chance to speak with April herself, Tara Reid, to discuss the upcoming Sharknado film, the franchise and her career.

eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Cars 3

Pixar’s Cars 3 is a huge change of pace for the franchise. The film sees Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) blindsided when a new generation of faster, more powerful, and younger racers join the racing circuit. Determined to stay in the sport that he loves, Lightning goes through a new-age training regiment with the help of Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), an eager young technician who has her own plans for winning. And while they might not agree on which training method works, they discover they need each other to reach their goals more than they realized.

We were fortunate enough to attend the press day of Pixar’s latest animated film where the attendees talked about who inspires them, some of their personal struggles, how one person can make the difference, and more. Check out what they had so say here below.

‘The Mummy’ Interview: Annabelle Wallis On Her First Action Movie And Doing Her Own Stunts
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

The Mummy reboot Tom Cruise Annabelle Wallis

Universal’s Dark Universe will reintroduce those classic Universal Monster films that terrified us as kids to a younger generation of audiences who might not be familiar with them. In this world of gods and monsters, the shadowy organization Prodigium works hard to find, examine, and contain these evil monsters. With Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy opening in theaters this weekend, the film opens the door to an all new terrifying universe where those same gods and monsters that used to scare us now exist and live amongst us today.

In The Mummy, the first Dark Universe installment, Annabelle Wallis plays Jenny, an archeologist who uses two soldiers of fortune, Nick (Tom Cruise) and Vail (Jake Johnson), to find an ancient sarcophagus that has sealed away one of the most powerful evils on earth, Princess Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella). But Nick’s reckless behavior unleashes that evil, and it is up to Nick, Jenny, and the rest of Prodigium to find out how to stop Ahmanet from succeeding with her plans to complete her ritual.

We were fortunate enough to participate in a phone interview with Wallis prior to the film’s release, where she talked about what it was like to film with Tom Cruise, the physicality of the shoot, doing her own stunts, what monsters scared her as a kid, and more. Find out what she had to say here below.

‘The Mummy’ Interview: Jake Johnson Found His Sense Of Adventure Thanks To Tom Cruise
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Jake Johnson in The Mummy

For New Girl star Jake Johnson, The Mummy was a way for him to expand his career into action films, though he still retains his small-screen witty and charming sense of humor. In Universal’s new reboot, the actor plays Vail, a soldier of fortune, who joins Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton on global quests to raid tombs and swipe treasures for profits. However, they come across one tomb they should have never unearthed, and without realizing it, they release a powerful evil bent on reclaiming what was once her’s.

We were recently invited to participate in a phone interview with Johnson to talk about his experience on set of The Mummy, his training, doing his own stunts, and more. Check out what he had to say here below.
