Alice Cooper panel

The Great Philadelphia Comic-Con was a place for geeks of all sorts. Living up to their motto, “Get Ur Geek On,” the con had guests covering all genres of the entertainment world including horror, sci-fi, animation, video games, cosplay and music. Fitting in perfectly amongst the multiverse of geekdom is Alice Cooper, a genuine rock icon going on fifty years in the business. Along with his near 30 albums and countless hits, Cooper is also a bonafide crossover star. The rocker, now 71 years old, earned a bevy of younger fans when he appeared on the Muppet Show in 1978. He appeared multiple times on Johnny Carson, before making a scene-stealing appearance in 1992’s Wayne’s World. It was there I first heard his music and I was hypnotized. He currently has two tours going: one with his main band and another with the Hollywood Vampires, a supergroup along with Johnny Depp, Joe Perry, and members of Guns n’ Roses. On Saturday afternoon, April 13th, Cooper had a Q&A panel, entitled “Welcome to my Nerdmare,” answering questions about his career in music and entertainment.

Strolling out to shouts of “We’re not worthy,” Cooper certainly still controls a room. The moderator jumped right in with questions, and then we got to ask one too.

Tigers Are Not Afraid image

Few word pairings have gained the increase in stature in the horror community over the past few years as “Shudder Exclusive.” AMC’s horror streaming service has quickly become the go-to destination for genre fans, acquiring original films and foreign films at a rapid pace. Last year, several Shudder exclusives made my year-end Top Horror films, including Mandy, Revenge, Terrified, Satan’s Slaves, and The Witch in the Window. After recently acquiring the rights to Japanese zom-com One Cut of the Dead, the network just acquired all the rights to Mexican horror film, Tigers Are Not Afraid by writer/director Issa Lopez.

Horror remakes can be very hit or miss. But whether you support them or loathe them on principle, they usually are guaranteed to pop a buyrate at the box office. The latest classic horror film to receive the remake treatment is Child’s Play, due out this June from director Lars Klevberg with a script from Tyler Burton Smith.

Check out the first look at the new Chucky and the first trailer for the Child’s Play reboot here below.

Jeffrey Combs Interview

This past weekend, The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center hosted 3 days of geek craziness at the Great Philadelphia Comic Con. The Con’s motto is “Get Ur Geek On” and fans poured in to meet celebrity guests, take in four panel rooms worth of Q&A discussions, weekend-long gaming tournaments, cosplay, and more. One of the celebrities I was most interested in meeting was Jeffrey Combs. A veteran character actor with over 130 credits to his name on IMDb, Combs was there in between co-stars from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Jake Busey from Peter Jackson’s The Frighteners. While many know him from his classic role as Dr. Herbest West in Re-Animator (1985), Combs has been performing as Edgar Allan Poe in a one-man show for a decade. I was able to speak with him about the convention, his career, and his upcoming work. I totally got my geek on!

New Jersey Horror Con 2019: David Howard Thornton interview

Last week at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ, the 2019 New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival provided thousands of horror fans and gorehounds with an escape. Dozens of celebrity guests filled the halls signing autographs, doing Q&A panels, and posing for photos with adoring fans. One guest was David Howard Thornton who plays the crazy killer clown Art in Damien Leone’s Terrifier, streaming on Netflix now. In a year where Bill Skarsgard revamped the classic horror clown Pennywise for It: Chapter 1, Thornton’s Art may have been horror cinema’s most “terrifying” new painted face killer. On Friday, he appeared in costume for photo ops and even took a stroll around the convention floor to frighten and amuse eager guests. I got a chance to speak with him later that evening about the film, clowns, and an upcoming Terrifier sequel.

New Jersey Horror Con 2019: Vendor Spotlight

Last week, the New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival took over the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Horror fans and gorehounds got a chance to mingle with their favorite genre icons, get autographs and photos, take in Q&A panels, and more. While you may go to conventions for the celebrities or the films, many go for the MERCH! And there were countless vendors there offering anything a true horror fans could ask for. You had your standard t-shirts, pop-toys, and collectibles. But I want to highlight a few vendors who stood out amongst the sea of horror-themed merchandise.

You can’t go to a film festival without checking out a bunch of films right?! The New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival took over the Showboat Hotel on the Atlantic City Boardwalk last week and unleashed a three-day film festival combining shorts and feature-length films from up and coming genre filmmakers. While I was bouncing around from the show floor to Q&A panels and more, I managed to take in a few excellent short films and a crazy feature that horror fans should look out for.

Japanese Zombie Comedy One Cut Of The Dead

AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder has been killing it as of late. They made news last year when their Last Drive-In movie marathon with Joe Bob Briggs broke the internet, and led to Joe Bob’s full return as host of the now-weekly Last Drive-In series every Friday. They also have been bringing in tons of Shudder exclusives and originals, including the Nicolas Cage revenge film Mandy, which debuted on the service last year.

Now, Shudder continues to be a step ahead in the horror streaming game, acquiring the international rights to acclaimed Japanese zom-com One Cut of the Dead, from director Shinichiro Ueda.
