Tonight on the show Victoria Price the daughter of the late great Vincent Price, she discusses with us her fathers legacy and more.

Vincent Price is widely regarded as one of the most iconic and beloved horror movie actors in the world. Any fan of classic horror movies knows the name Vincent Price as synonymous with elegance, humor, talent, worldliness, and charm. Throughout his over 60-year movie career, appearing in countless classic horror movies, as well as classic films outside the horror genre, Price established himself as one of the most popular actors–beloved among both his fans and his peers.

We also talk with John one of the heads of Super Mega Fest which is next weekend in Framingham MA. Its at the Sheraton Hotel tickets are on sale now. Check out the awesome line up on the list below

Witchblade the Anime and TV show

Posted in Anime/Manga, Cartoons, Comic Books, entertainment, Goth, horror, Horror Babes, horror/sci-fi cartoon, Monsters, SciFi on November 13, 2014 by chrisdsav

Back before all we had was X-men the movie and Blade we didn’t have the bevy of Comic Book mayhem we have today. No Walking Dead or Arrow. We were two  years away from Smallvile and Spider-man really exploding the media of Superheroes.
In 2000 we got Witchblade the made for TV movie and then two season over the summer on TNT, staring Yancy Butler. The show and movie came out on DVD a few years back and really is worth checking out. It ended on a cliff hanger as do most shows that get canceled before they were suppose too.

It was decent and followed the comic very well and even brought some much needed seriousness to what was at the time a T and A bad joke. The show didn’t have the gauntlet tear Sarah’s clothes apart and Butler actually looked like a NY cop pretty and bad ass. Not the porn star style body Sarah has in the comics.
Unfortunately the show was canceled and rumors are the star was drunk a lot on set. Look it up I’m not a gossip column.

Years went by and we never saw another version until 2006 Funimation the anime company teamed up with Top Cow to produce an anime show set in the future with a new bearer of the  Witchblade. Masane Amaha is a single mother trying to survive in Neo Tokyo and has been chosen as the new bearer of the mystical gauntlet. She ends up working for the owner of the Dojo Group in Japan and has to put a stop to their hay wire Neo Genes cyborgs. Its boobs monsters and bloody good times. I mean LOTS OF BOOBS cleavage and no nudity BTW. Its anime what do you expect ART?? Wait ignore that last part some anime is Art.
This is a decent anime show even if its silly and filled with silly extra characters. The Witchblade feeds off Masane energy and she gets very aroused from killing to the point she is in ecstasy. Watch Frozen the anime show its very similar.

The show is on blu ray and DVD and worth picking up. Its filled with bonus material galore. Including interviews with people who worked on the comic book like Top Cow co creator Mark Silvestri.

Dracula will rise AGAIN!!!!!

Posted in Comic Books, Dracula, Horror Movies, vampires with tags on November 3, 2014 by chrisdsav

As some of you may or may not know my kick starter for my gender Swapped Dracula movie has failed

like badly. I join the ranks of Joe Dante, Stuart Gordon, Dario Argentio who have tried to get a crowd funding campaign completed to make a new Horror movie. They on the other hand will get picked up by some studio most likely. (Except Argentio his Dracula sucked BIG TIME like what the fuck where they thinking??)

All the money that was donated will be returned to the people who help contribute. We do have other plans. As stated before there could be a comic book coming from this project and I have decided to take the script I wrote and turn it into a book. my own version of Dracula. You can do what ever you want with DRACULA as its public domain and can never be copy written.

I would like to thank Rachel and Andrew and Sara for helping out with the short film we did Dracula’s Guest.

Here is another article written by Josh Lyford over at the Worcester Magazine about my project. As stated in the title DRACULA WILL LIVE AGAIN!!!!

IDW Horror Titles

Posted in aliens, Books, Comedy, Comic Books, entertainment, ghosts, Godzilla, Monsters, Mutants, news, vampires, Vwars, X-Files on September 26, 2014 by chrisdsav

X-Files Season 10

The X-files one of the best damn shows on TV became last year a great comic book from IDW. It takes place after the events of the second movie and Mulder an Scully rejoin the FBI. Its a great set up with other great characters returning to help and cause problems. The Lone gunmen returned and actually teamed up with the Ghostbusters, The Crow and The Transformers, and TMNT other titles that IDW publishes. They also have been reissuing the old Topps Comics in the X-Files Classics books. VOl 4 is due out soon.  Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard (issues 7-current) started out on this comic book, get a chance to see his art work on color. Jonathan Maberry creator of V wars and several other writers will be doing a tales of the X-Files book soon. A board game set during S1-3 will be out soon.

V Wars VWars05-cvrA

Speaking of V Wars based on his best selling prose novel series Jonathan Maberry has turned it into a hit comic book. Its a great visual to an awesome original Vampire story. A game is coming out from IDW as well in a few months. I just turned my short story into Jonathan for Vol 3 due out in Spring Summer 2015. The comic introduces the Blood Queen a leader to these Vampires. After a ice berg melts and unleashes a virus that turns people into non supernatural Vampires the V wars begin. 6 issues in and they took a break for a month and come back in Oct with the second story arc. Alternate covers to this book are by Kevin Eastman co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Godzilla

The King of the Monsters has a great line up of action comics out from IDW. How cool would it be to see Godzilla fight Omega Supreme from the Transformers or Devastaor, or TRYPTICON. ( Can’t tell I love Transformers can you?) This comic features all of his rouge gallery and a bunch of monsters he never fought in the movies, but had movies of their own from TOHO. How cool would it be to see Godzilla fight Gamera in a comic?

Ghostbusters

Here is the one horror related title I don’t pick up that often and only read the first few trade paperbacks. Currently the Ghostbusters are missing and Janeie the receptionist has assembled a new team of younger Ghostbusters to fill the guys …..uhhh proton pack. I like what I have seen so far and look forward to finally getting caught up.

IDW also published 30 Days of Night( the book that started them on a great path of becoming an amazing publisher. Transformers, My Little Pony!!!, Star Trek GI Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, (honestly my favorite comic form the company its that good.)  the Crow, and sooooo many others. They just ended Locke and Key which was massivly successful for the company. We gave away some X-Files goodies and Godzilla comics as well,  thanks to our contact NATE and we look forward to see what is coming next from IDW.
