Whilst waiting for Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson (the creative duo behind GHOST STORIES) to be dragged into the RUE MORGUE STUDIO OF INTENSE AGONY, my intuition told me it would be fun to interview Andy’s kids, young actors and budding horror fanatics Macy and Preston Nyman.
They were such bright, enthusiastic and clever little buggers they seemed the perfect fodder for a full-blown RUE MORGUE PODCAST interrogation.
As promised on a recent episode of Rue Morgue Radio, here’s the remainder of my interview with writer/director Jim Mickle and writer/actor Nick D’Amici, the dynamic duo behind apocalyptic vampire flick STAKE LAND.
As promised on a recent episode of Rue Morgue Radio, here’s the remainder of my interview with sculptor Kris Kuksi who, as filmmaker Guillermo del Toro puts it, is “a post-industrial Rococo master … [who]…manages to evoke, at once, a sanctum and a mausoleum for our suffocated spirit.”
It’s Episode 30 of the Rue Morgue Podcast and it’s EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT THE FESTIVAL OF FEAR BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK!
First of all, STEVEN SEVERIN (co-founder of Siouxsie and the Banshees) joins me to talk about the latest incarnation of his Music For Silents series, the alternate score for Jean Cocteau’s 1930 surrealist film THE BLOOD OF A POET.
Steven will present the film and perform the score live at the Drake Hotel on Sunday, Aug. 28th.
And then, LAST CHANCE LANCE joins me to rundown some of the highlights of this year’s F.O.F.
If you’re planning to attend this weekend, consider this an essential primer.
If you can’t attend, listen anyway! It’s epic and juicy.
The one and only DJ Jimi LaMort (lead singer of MALHAVOC and host of DARK HARMONIES RADIO) joins me to run down some of the highs and lows from this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Allow us to assault your ears with blistering, early reviews of such feisty flicks as the Australian serial killer movie SNOWTOWN, Eduardo Sánchez’s LOVELY MOLLY, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s INTRUDERS, Alexandre Courtes’s THE INCIDENT, the Cuban zombie epic JUAN OF THE DEAD and British horrors THE AWAKENING and KILL LIST.
Plus, we review Guillermo del Toro’s appearance at a recent CINEMACABRE screening of MIMIC: THE DIRECTOR’S CUT where we got the scoop on some of the flicks that Mr. Del Toro is planning to show in Toronto this Halloween at the LIGHTBOX.
And if that’s not enough, I manage to convince LaMort to elaborate on some of his “Leave Polanski Alone!” comments made in response to our I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE show.
It’s a tour de force of brutal nihilism and seething resentment of Krokodilian proportions on this week’s episode of the RUE MORGUE PODCAST!
I’m more than delighted to welcome to this week’s show, the legendary Godfather of Gore himself, Mr. HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS!
Mr. Lewis is the subject of the recently released doc HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS: THE GODFATHER OF GORE out now on home video courtesy of SOMETHING WEIRD.
Also, the Godfather will be making an appearance at the MUSIC BOX MASSACRE in Chicago on Oct. 15th to present a 35mm screening of his seminal splatter epic THE WIZARD OF GORE (Apparently, one of Juno’s favorite movies – but don’t let that dissuade you from going!).
Also, we have 10 pairs of tickets to giveaway for the following killer events in Chicago in October:
First, there’s TERROR IN THE AISLES – the ultimate horror triple bill featuring screenings of SHAUN OF THE DEAD, DANCE OF THE DEAD and Lamberto Bava’s DEMONS.
And then there’s the VINCENTENNIAL featuring a presentation by Victoria Price, daughter of Vincent Price and the author of VINCENT PRICE: A DAUGHTER’S BIOGRAPHY. The event also includes 35mm screenings of HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and THE LAST MAN ON EARTH.
To win a pair of tickets to either of the above events, drop me an email at contests @ ruemorgueradio.com.
As a lifelong Vincent Price fanatic, I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to welcome to this week’s episode of the Rue Morgue Podcast, the lovely VICTORIA PRICE, author of VINCENT PRICE: A DAUGHTER’S BIOGRAPHY.
2011 is the VINCENTENNIAL – the 100th anniversary of the birth of the world’s most beloved horror icon.
Victoria has been doing a series of presentations throughout the year to celebrate his enduring legacy as not only a screen legend and a passionate supporter of the visual arts but as an eternally curious lover of life and an incredible father too! We were very lucky to have her here in August for the FESTIVAL OF FEAR where this Q&A was conducted.
Also, Victoria will be appearing at the Chicago incarnation of the VINCENTENNIAL where they’re screening 35mm prints of classic Vincent Price movies like THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and THE LAST MAN ON EARTH. It’s happening on Oct. 30th at the Portage Theatre in Chicago – and the delicious news is … the Rue Morgue Podcast has pairs tickets to giveaway!

newt138: It might have lived again if CK wasn't such a dick to all the fans. Admit it you stupid fuck Deadpit died cause you are a greedy fuck. Like when you created that bootleg site and tried to act like it wasn't you behind it. But you were stupid

bradtheman: Like all things in life, Deadpit Radio's run had to end at some point. Towards the end, Wes, Aaron, and Steve's hearts weren't in it and that it was time to move on. For what it's worth, I like to thank the threesome for inspiring me to do commentaries.

oldhorrorfan: Stuttering Steve Bumblefuck B Plan was worse than Aids on there and was one of the Main reasons the show went to shit so fast..
May 31, 2019 8:58:17 GMT -5
bradtheman: That and the horror genre was going down the tubes when Aaron and Wes signed off. It still is with the Child's Play remake and I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu as examples.
May 31, 2019 23:23:06 GMT -5
newt138: No mainstream horror was going down the tubes. There was plenty of good mainstream horror. But as fat fuck Wes told many people "Unless we get sent a copy for free I Aint reviewing it."
Jun 11, 2019 13:50:53 GMT -5
bradtheman: The 8th anniversary of my very first audio commentary is coming up. It was for Psycho IV: The Beginning. I like to thank Wes and Aaron for inspiring me to do some on my own.

psychostillvicious: Greetings one and all. Don't know if anyone remembers me, but whatever. I was a poster here many moons ago. God I loved Deadpit. I'm just strolling down memory lane after hearing some sad news from Wes on facebook. Long live DP.
Jul 25, 2019 14:15:25 GMT -5
bradtheman: I'm sorry about what Wes Vance is going through right now. My thoughts go to him and his family.
