Interview: Harrison Smith: Death House Movie

In a world full of zombie and demon movies, Harrison Smith and Entertainment Factory have dared to do something different.

That's right, my creepy cohorts: not zombies, sparkly vampires, lame emo werewolves, bad interpretations of skin walkers, fake demon possessions, or post-apocalyptic, unbelievable nonsense. Can you say spooky, evil, government experimentation in an old, sinister-looking, turn of the century prison?  Throw in a who's who of horror icons, and you've got the potential for one Hell of a movie, possibly quite literally.

But I don't want to give too much away.

The movie, Death House, doesn't come out 'til 2017, but when it does, make sure you give it a watch. Until then, I think I'll have to drink some nightshade, and lock myself in my tomb so I don't implode from anticipation. It's been far too long since I've been frightened by a horror movie, and I'm pretty sure this is going to be the one to do it for me. The anticipati…

Where Are They Now? Catching Up with Actor Nathan Head

It's been a while since I chatted with Nathan Head, my freaky fiends, and he is still one of my faves to not only interview, but to watch in all his splendeur effrayant. With roles ranging from terrifying clowns, psychopaths, demon possessed, the living dead, to a bit in a Dr. Who episode, Nathan has proven time and again in all his endevours what a great character actor he is.

Nathan also has been one busy boy, and involved in some very exciting projects. Want to know how busy? Well, just continue reading and you shall see my pets!

Lili's Lair: It's been several year since your first interview here. What's been your favourite project in that time, and why?

Nathan Head: Well there’s been a few, I’m exceptionally proud of Theatre Of Fear (aka The Midnight Horror Show), which came out in 2014 in the UK and 2015 in North America. It got a good release and was even in the UK DVD charts for two weeks and released in 3D in cinemas in Germany. But I also enjoyed working on that…

Channel Zero: Candle Cove: Review and Thoughts on the Series Thus Far

Channel Zero: Candle Cove is a six-episode, self-contained, horror anthology TV series, created by Nick Antosca, and based on the short by Kris Straub. It's directed by Craig Macneill, and stars Paul Schneider, Fiona Shaw, Luisa D' Oliveira, Natalie Brown, Shaun Benson, and Luca Villacis.

Channel Zero is based on a popular "creepypasta." For those of you not in the know, creepypastas are horror-related, user-generated internet memes. Creepypasta is a blend of words whose sounds and meanings are combined to form a new word, in this case from "creepy" and from a slang term for "copy and paste."  Now that we have that cleared up, we can get back to the review.

Channel Zero centres on Mike Painter and his return to his hometown after spending almost two decades being haunted by a strange children's television show, the disappearance of his brother, and the brutal deaths of other children in his home town. Now, the show is back, and so is the nightma…
