Tristan Risk talks to 'Ghost'

Tristan Risk American Maryby Ghost, MoreHorror.com

Appearances are everything.

I'm so excited to present Tristan Risk in this mini ''Boo Tube' interview for MoreHorror.com (watch the mini interview below the details).

We discuss burlesque, future projects and of course her (shoulda won an Oscar) performance in the instant cult classic American Mary (review).

Tristan blew me away with her outstanding role as Beatress Johnson, a Betty Boop look-a-like, in American Mary but she really stole my heart when Twisted Twins, Jen and Sylvia Soska introduced me to this ball of talent at a party the night before we filmed this little video. From the second you meet her you just want to squeeze her she's so cute!

Just before we started filming I asked Tristan if she could talk like Beatress the entire interview. Not only did she jump right into character but she was excited to do so, as if I didn't love her enough already. I just want to put her on my computer and stare at her all day!

If you haven't seen it yet, American Mary is now available on DVD and Netflix, it's one of my favourite horror films from 2012.

After watching her in this little interview you'll be DYING for more, you can stalk -- I mean follow Tristan on Twitter for more information and appearances: @littlemissrisk. Enjoy.

'Deadly Punkettes' teaser art and cast line-up revealed

by Gerald Beanery, MoreHorror.com

Somehow, someway, the award winning bowlegged poet-turned-filmmaker from Midlothian, Virginia, is now getting his 7th feature film produced, Deadly Punkettes. The film will depict the gritty Neapolitan rise and fall of 4 prissy teenage punk-rock princesses, who’ll have to maintain well-rounded riots even after a founding member mysteriously dies, and haunts their act!

The picture might just be the first of its kind, melding an all-girl group novelty with paranormal terror. The plot twists hardly promise to be tame, and the predictability of this particular writer’s track record could convince us the story will be chock full of sassy, silly, and seductive female characters.

Meet the band… On bass guitar and vocals … the daring and diverse D’Lannie Brown, as Aspen, a simple girl who’s about to become enchanted by a new set of illusions in her life … and death. On guitar … the delicate and dear … Claire Gordon-Harper, as Carby Kelp, an Emo who finds her jailed-daddy’s guitar and learns to play it. On drums … from the Land of Unicorns … Danielle Stavin as Zeb, an insecure, experimental school-girl that wants to be different. On keyboards … the shining star and grenade of harmony … Madeline McGrane, as Rainy, a chick who cashes in on keys and signs receipts for cooking hooks and hits.

Dave Knapp plays the band’s first manager, who helps shape their sound, before getting replaced by Sicily Mane, portrayed by sweet-maker Jackie Shea, the big shot mink wearin’ record producer, who takes on the band with her own hidden agenda, to fill the package with her bed pet, Jocelyn Winters, played by the loveliest of lovelies and Michelangelo’s day-mare, Skylar Ripp. MoreHorror’s very own rock opera of the screen, Dawna Lee Heising, plays Gladys Kang, the Gold Mag Enterprise mogul who sniffs out every trick and has better ears than anybody.

“Hospital Massacre” (1982) Review

Hospital MassacreReviewed by Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

“Hospital Massacre” (1982)
Directed By: Boaz Davidson
Written By: Marc Behm & Boaz Davidson

Starring: Barbi Benton (Susan Jeremy), Charles Lucia (Harry), Jon Van Ness (Jack), John Warner Williams (Dr. Saxon), Den Surles (Dr. Beam), Gloria Jean Morrison (Nurse Dora), Karen Smith (Nurse Kitty), Michael Frost (Ned), Jimmy Stathis (Tom), Lanny Duncan (Hal), Marian Beeler (Mrs. Edelman), Elly Wolf (Mrs. Fedrow), Jonathon Moore (Mrs. Parry), Gay Austin (Dr. Jacobs)

In the early 1980s, slashers were coming and going as fast as they were made. When I saw this was going to be a slasher that is based in a hospital setting, my initial reaction was, “Is this going to be a rip off of Halloween II?” Thankfully this movie, despite some faults, was much better than I gave it credit for. Boaz Davison put together a fairly atmospheric hospital slasher that was fairly well paced. In some other countries the movie is known by its alternate title “X-Ray.”

The plot is about a woman who goes to a yearly check up in a hospital suddenly turns to a nightmare as a stalker from her past is there killing people one by one. The leading lady here is Susan (played by Barbi Benton) who does a decent job in this movie. Barbi Benton is mostly associated with Playboy Magazine so I was expecting worse but she does well with what she has to work with. I was more impressed by the stalker (played by Charles Lucia) who does a commendable job lurking through the hospital portraying a formidable and angry menace.

The best part of the movie for me is not so much the kills but the atmosphere. The atmosphere is brilliant in this movie. Who wouldn’t be automatically uneasy in a dim lit hospital full of rooms and people who are sick? One of the oddest scenes, that I strangely found affective, was where a Doctor was giving Susan a physical examination. This wasn’t a normal physical examination. It was done very slowly, in a dim light with the whole scene taking about ten minutes to do.

The Legend of the Red Reaper (2013) review

The Legend of The Red ReaperReviewed by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

It’s hard to push out a fantasy epic these days and have audiences not reject it for being too derivative of what has come before, but I think The Legend of the Red Reaper manages to still find that spot to be entertaining without feeling overly familiar and thus distracting.

Writer/Director/Actress Tara Cardinal’s directorial debut is an entertaining slice of epic high fantasy that proves to be quite rollicking and rousing as it chugs along from killer set piece to killer set piece.

It’s got all the ingredients that you need for a good fantasy tale – strong characters, entertaining sword fights, good versus evil, an ancient prophecy, a strange but yet intriguing fantastical world and of course, one of my favourites – a good dose of violence thrown in for good measure.

Tara Cardinal stars as Aella, a spirited young woman who is part of a league of ancient warriors, known as The Reapers, that have been in conflict for centuries with a band of demonic figures that plague the realm.

Aella is also half human-half demon – an intriguing little notion that is thankfully given a little complexity enough to make it work throughout the film, leading to a few interesting story developments that caught me surprise.

I’ll stop there with the story tidbits because for it’s 100 minute running time, there is A LOT of story and mythology to get used to and I wouldn’t want to ruin even the slightest bit of story development because frankly, I found it quite fun to learn the mythology and the world piece by piece as the film went along.

From a technical viewpoint, the fight choreography is well done and thrilling (though a little stilted at times), there’s solid acting across the board from this wonderful and quirky cast of characters – especially Cardinal, who is wonderful and radiant as the titular Red Reaper – and the feature is accompanied by and accentuated by a rousing musical score that adds sparks to the action on screen.

'Last Kind Words' Review

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Ghost stories based on urban legend or rural folklore rarely transfer well to film. Oddly enough it seems that there is a more powerful delivery in the written or spoken word without the visuals. It’s refreshing when someone gets it right. Set against the backdrop of picturesque rural Kentucky, “Last Kind Words” works at spinning a tale of the sins of the past coming back to haunt the next generation.

A teenager named Eli and his parents move to an isolated farm to take on laborer jobs. His family life is a dysfunctional cocktail of alcoholism and rage on his father’s part, and complacency and submission on his mother’s.

When things look the bleakest, he meets Amanda at the outskirts of the farm. She’s a beautiful girl about his age that seems like his saving grace. He even loses interest in Katie, a potential friend with benefits from his old neighborhood when she comes to visit with an invitation to leave with her. Amanda gives him a cryptic warning about not crossing a ramshackle fence in the woods, and the farm owner warns him to stay away from her. It culminates when he does cross the fence, only to find a strung up and decomposed body. What transpires after that exposes everyone’s emotional vulnerability in both the living and the dead, and resurrects lies that have yet to be atoned for.

This film has an extremely well written and thought out story, and the cast has some familiar faces whose skills are utilized quite well in conveying how living with secrets and emotions untapped can wither one away. Marianne Hagan from “Halloween 6” almost has a Sissy Spacek quality as a wilted southern flower, and Brad Dourif gets a reprieve from his usual intensity (for a little while anyway) as the farm owner that seems to be the most stable one of the bunch, but has his own problems without easy solutions.

Author Stephanie Campbell turns Teachers’ Day into paperback novel

by Gerald Beanery, MoreHorror.com

When the award winning director Jared Masters read chapter one of the new Teachers’ Day novel, he was simply shocked by the poignancy and beauty of a literature only Stephanie Campbell could bring. The girl has written twice as many novels as Masters has produced pictures. From the recent Gator, to the critically acclaimed Visible Scars, Campbell knows a best seller when she sees one.

The prodigy hails from the Midwest. Her skills have brought her forefront access to the world of paperback pressing, while managing to capture the fragility of the teenage heart. Masters is in love. Finally he’s found a young, untainted mind he can make progress with in the field of motion pictures and novelty literary arts. The opus is underway, and so deep, it penetrates the curiosities of youthful human emotion.

Jared Masters has recently won EOTM Award for Best Indie Scream Director for his Horror film Slink, which is now On Demand. The film is getting rave reviews, but his newest phenomena Teachers’ Day is raising questions and brewing buzz from the U.K. to the Philippines.

The film stars Nikole Howell, Lindsay Lamb, Abby Summers, and Savannah Matlow, and is coming soon from Frolic Pictures. You don’t want to be the only one who hasn’t seen the film or read the book, so add the DVD and the paperback to your wish list, and they’ll soon be yours to own forever.

Jared Lee Masters wins “Best Scream” for Slink at 2013 EOTM Awards

by Gerald Beanery, MoreHorror.com

To everyone's surprise, the youngest geezer in Hollywood, has some how taken home the “glass” from the 1st annual EOTM Awards for “Best Scream Indie Director” for horror film Slink. Jared Masters was accompanied by his latest discovery, dream date Danielle Stavin, who has no acting experience but nevertheless will star as Zeb, the hot drummer, in his new Paranormal all-girl band thriller Deadly Punkettes. Masters recognizes real talent in choosing D'Lannie Brown to fill the bill, which might also feature some of the rising pop star's hit tracks. She's Photogenic's definition, and a synonym of grace. D'Lannie is also the star of the hit new reality show Raising Fame. Skylar Ripp was was also cast because she is dynamic and marvelous on and off screen. The film is also set to star Claire Gordon-Harper, if an actress was any sweeter she'd be on daytime television. She might be the only member of the band that's a real musician. Also, on keyboards, is the darling Miss Madeline McGrane, an acting angel from theatrical heaven.

The film also includes the lavishly well-rounded chops of Julia Faye West, as Missy, the stepmom/morning lush. Jackie Shea will also adorn the cinema space with her portrayal of Jocelyn Winters, the conniving two-faced bi-polar queen who’s defining moment in character exploration and tone has come. Masters admits that some male roles he’s written he’s now converting to female roles, as he’s more inspired by them, this is why when he found Jen Lee Nielson, he realized she’d play the perfect Franki Riesling, the not-too-tomboyish tom boy, a challenge they don’t go over at Stella Adler. And whoever opened a teen mystery book and let Elizabeth Peterson hop out should be credited in the Special Thanks section, for allowing the endearing hundred pounds of fun to be immortalized in this rare sub-genre film of girl band glory. In 2001 it was Josie and the Pussycats, In 2010 it was The Runaways and in 2014 it will be…. Deadly Punkettes. The first paranormal all-girl band movie ever!

Amityville 1992: It’s About Time (1992) Review

Reviewed by Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

Directed By: Tony Randel
Written By: John G. Jones, Christopher DeFaria, Antonio Toro

Starring: Stephen Macht (Jacob Sterling), Shawn Weatherly (Andrea Livingston), Megan Ward (Lisa Sterling), Damon Martin (Rusty Sterling), Jonathan Penner (Dr. Leonard Stafford), Nita Talbot (Iris Wheeler), Dean Cochran (Andy)

Some horror fans automatically have a negative connotation attached to franchises with a lot of sequels. Moreover, some have antipathy toward direct to video sequels and make assumptions that because they were not in the theater that they are automatically going to be bad regardless. I have watched the entire original run of the Amityville movies and this could be argued as the best direct to video sequel of the lot. First released by Republic Pictures in 1992, “Amityville 1992” takes the premise of the book it is based on and gives a good outing to a dying franchise.

The plot is that Jacob Sterling brings back a vintage clock from his trip in NY near the Amityville house. Soon after, the Amityville curse inside the clock is unleashed upon the family. The premise follows the fourth movie’s idea of a piece of the Amityville House causing mischief inside another family’s home. Completely ignoring the fifth movie (and rightfully so), this movie goes a step further than the fourth sequel and makes it more scary again.

The acting is surprisingly good. Jacob Sterling’s (played by Stephen Macht) slow madness after being bit by a dog in his leg sends him spiraling on a path to destroy his own family. Andrea (Shawn Weatherly) and Rusty (Damon Martin) are good protagonists to wade through the insanity going on with Jacob and his daughter Lisa. The next door neighbor is played by veteran actress Nita Talbot (as Iris) who adds more mystery to the clock for Rusty.
