Oct 15th, 2010. Besides being an icon, George Romero is one hell of a nice guy. I’ll never forget being a young teen and hearing “They’re coming to get you Barbara” for the first time. It’s not that it scared me as much as made me excited. The hauntingly slow way in which the zombies brought death to their victims captivated me. George Romero’s Dead films are certainly one of the greatest catalysts in my ever growing fascination with all things creepy, so to him, I am forever grateful. The following is an interview I conducted in George’s hotel room prior to his appearance at the 2010 Rock And Shock Fest in Worcester, MA.

October 15th, 2010. How does one write an introduction about spending an hour of his life interviewing Danny Trejo? I definitely don’t want to blow up Danny’s spot, but underneath the rugged exterior, he is an extremely compassionate person. Besides being on of the most feared bad guys in cinema history, he is also a humanitarian, dedicating countless hours to speaking with people (especially youth) about drug, alcohol or criminal problems. In his documentary Champion, Danny says he hopes to be remembered as somebody who helped, and after spending the time that I did with him, and seeing his sincereity first hand, I have no doubt in my mind that he will. But enough of the sappy shit. Danny would have probably cut me by now if I was saying this to his face. So without further ado…

I think The New York Time’s hit the nail on the head when they called Lisa Lampanelli an “equal opportunity offender”. Lisa is most notably known for her work on the Comedy Central Roasts and her appearances on The Howard Stern show. Oh my gosh, did I just say Howard Stern!? If you’re on this site and reading this feature then I’m assuming you have at least somewhat of an open mind…good for you, give yourself a little pat.
The thing I love about Lisa Lampanelli is that she genuinely does have a good heart and at the same time, has an honest gift for helping people to stop taking themselves so goddamn seriously. Well either that or to infuriate them into a fist wagging frenzy. I hope in your case it’s not the latter, because in this day, and age, if we can’t laugh at ourselves, what the hell can we laugh at? The following interview was conducted on 11/2/10.>

Kane Hodder is most notably know for his role as Jason Vorhees from the Friday the 13th film series. He also plays Victor Crowley in the more recent Hatchet film series and is a well respected stuntman. Now that we’ve gotten the pleasantries out of the way, Kane Hodder is one bad ass man. His kill record on screen is untouched. He enjoys giving input on kill scenes while they’re being filmed, coming from a fans persepctive, but if you ask him to hurt a kid, or even kick a dog on screen, you’re the one who liable to be his next victim. Ki Ki Ki Ma Ma Ma.

Michael Berryman may not be a household name, but once you put a face to the name chances are you’ll be familiar with some of his vast repertoire of work. Michael has appeared in over 30 films including One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Hills Have Eyes, Weird Science (a personal 80′s favorite of mine) & The Devil’s Rejects.
Michael usually plays characters who are one twist short of a slinky, but off-screen, he is very serene, and a sincerely nice guy. He was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to discuss organic farming, a few of his upcoming projects, and why we should think twice about the way we treat ourselves, each other, and the planet as a whole.
