New Jersey Horror Con Films-02

The New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival took over the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel in Iselin, NJ this weekend for three days of scary movies, celebrities, cosplay, and more. While much of the fun was held in the convention and ballrooms downstairs, two viewing rooms were set up on the second floor for special screenings, as well as for film festival entrants. I took time to catch a block of short films, as well as a screening of a horror film that had been on my radar for a long time.

Screenwriter: Justin M. Seaman
Cast: Mitchell Musolino, Will Stout, Lexi Dripps, Cortland Woodard, Nikki Darling, Nickolaus Joshua, Linnea Quigley, Ari Lehman
Distributor: Nevermore Productions
Not Rated | 90 Minutes

I was super excited to finally get a chance to check out The Barn at the New Jersey Horror Con and Film Festival. Emanating from the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel in Iselin, NJ, the convention spanned the weekend featuring celebrities, horror movie reunions, cosplays contests, and screenings of new and old horror films. The Barn debuted last year and played the one night I could not attend the New York City Horror Film Festival. I toured the floor at the NJ Horror Con and found their merchandise table, where writer/director Justin M. Seaman and Director of Photography Zane Hershberger were sitting. These guys know how to sell a film! With a poster that feels cut and pasted out of an 80s video store, they have DVDs, VHS tapes (!!!), stuffed dolls of the three lead villains, board games, hats… you name it. The only question that remained was, is the film good? Simply put, The Barn is a killer good time.

‘American Gods’: A TV Series That Fans Of The Book Will Love

American Gods poster banner premiere date

[At SXSW 2017, we screened the first episode of the upcoming Starz series American Gods, based on the Neil Gaiman novel. Here are our thoughts.]

SXSW 2017 – Shadow Moon is a man alone. His life is returned, but his life is gone. He’s got a plan all set up, but no one’s available to help him with it.

Lucky for Shadow, it’s Wednesday.

It’s no spoiler to tell you that about the protagonist of a 16-year-old book. What I can’t tell you, however, is why. American Gods Episode 1.1 “The Bone Orchard,” the pilot of the new STARZ show based on Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name, is full of characters that are suffering from difficult-to-explain juxtapositions. Rather that frustrate viewers, however, that fact about the show is sure to intrigue; to provide an alluring mist not too different than the white curls of smoke wafting from the white buffalo’s eyes in the series’ trailer before the beast telepathically utters: Believe.

SXSW 2017: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Showrunners Tease Season 7 & 8 Details

SXSW 2017 Game Of Thrones Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams

With HBO announcing the premiere date for the highly anticipated seventh season of Game of Thrones, the series showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss joined an anxious crowd today at SXSW in Austin, TX, to talk about what’s to come.

Normally, fans are treated to new seasons of the show in April soon after SXSW is held. However, due to a more intense filming schedule that required utilizing seasonal weather, we’re having to wait until July for Season 7. As such, to the folks attending this panel it felt much like a support group (e.g., “Hi my name is Tom, and it’s been 10 months since I consumed fresh episodes of Game Of Thrones.”)

Game of Thrones panel SXSW 2017

At the Game of Thrones panel at this year’s SXSW, showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff said they’d love to do an episode of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty once the HBO series concludes.

The response came from a question about what the pair’s plans are beyond the show. As a bit of a surprise, neither hesitated to respond in agreement about collaborating on the sleeper hit cartoon series co-created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. There was, however, one big catch…

While neither made mention of the exact episode or scene, it was confirmed on stage that musician and adult-Ron Weasley lookalike Ed Sheeran will be making his way to Essos.

SXSW 2017: Bravo’s ‘Stripped’ Is A Life Without Gadgets… or Anything Else

Stripped on Bravo

[SXSW 2017 – Stripped is a new series on Bravo where you have nothing – not even your clothes.]

It’s 2017. The iPhone has turned 10 years old, and it, along with all of its Android friends, are all over the place, and in hundreds of millions of hands all over this world. Netflix is an established company and no longer a novelty. Podcasts play on voice-activated devices like the Amazon Echo. We could go on, but you get the point:

We’re connected. We’re tied in. We’re people with toys and gadgets and we’re possessive about those effigies of consumerism.

But Bravo knows it’s Lent. It’s time to give some of that stuff up. And while religion has nothing to do with their programming, it’s fitting that their new show, Stripped, is being promoted right now.
