Q&A Time With 'Milo' Director Jacob Vaughan

Q&A Time With ‘Milo’ Director Jacob Vaughan

Jacob Vaughan calls himself “The guy with the butt monster” on his Twitter account. That is more than appropriate considering he was the dude that blessed us with Milo, a movie about a demon butt monster that I cannot stop gushing about since I saw its awesomeness at SXSW. Any guy who co-writes and directs...
'Evil Dead' Interview: The Cast Talks About Living Up to the Original and Skinny Dipping?

‘Evil Dead’ Interview: The Cast Talks About Living Up to the Original and Skinny Dipping?

In my second part of my Evil Dead adventures at SXSW, I was even more awkwardly professional during my interview with the movie’s stars Jane Levy, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, Shiloh Fernandez, and Elizabeth Blackmore. I get a tad bit overwhelmed with this one on five interview and start rambling my questions — with...
'Evil Dead' Interview: Bruce Campbell, Fede Alvarez, and Rob Tapert Talk about Rebirthing the Classic

‘Evil Dead’ Interview: Bruce Campbell, Fede Alvarez, and Rob Tapert Talk about Rebirthing the Classic

The Evil Dead remake (or re-birth, as they call it) opens in theaters on Friday, April 5 — but I got to see it at the premiere during SXSW (yes, I am bragging). I also got to interview the almighty Evil Dead king, Bruce Campbell (who produced the remake) as well as fellow producer Rob...
Trailer of the Week: 'You're Next'

Trailer of the Week: ‘You’re Next’

I saw You’re Next during my SXSW adventures. The suspense and gore made me cringe, squirm, and nearly piss my pants. That’s always a good thing when it comes to thrillers. Think of this movie as The Strangers, but with even more murderous fuckery.
Q&A Time With 'It's Not You It's Me' Filmmaker, Matt Spicer

Q&A Time With ‘It’s Not You It’s Me’ Filmmaker, Matt Spicer

I’ve been going on and on about how much I enjoyed the short film, It’s Not You, It’s Me while I was SXSW. I think it’s because it’s a dark comedy. I like dark. I like comedy. Most of all, I like it when some funny fucked up shit happens as a result. Director Matt...
The Films of SXSW Demand a Return to Practical Effects, Analog Music, and VHS Tapes

The Films of SXSW Demand a Return to Practical Effects, Analog Music, and VHS Tapes

I watched a lot of movies while I was at SXSW — 25 to be exact. There was one interesting theme that I took away from the films I watched: a return to traditional, non-digitized media. It’s obvious that we live in a world where music, movies, and practically every form of media has been...
SXSW Adventures Day 7: From 'Short Term 12' to 'Milo'

SXSW Adventures Day 7: From ‘Short Term 12′ to ‘Milo’

I’ll admit. I am running on fumes, but I refuse to throw in the towel and just sleep all day. I shall endure the remainder of this festival until the closing night film, The East. I will not let fatigue and delirium get the best of me. I mean, who needs a healthy night sleep...
SXSW Adventures Day 6: 'Sound City', the Comedy of Dave Grohl, and Trade Show Swag

SXSW Adventures Day 6: ‘Sound City’, the Comedy of Dave Grohl, and Trade Show Swag

Today was the last day of the SXSW trade show which is essentially an expo of free stuff: pens, T shirts, bags, notepads, candy, flyers, beer coozies, and a whole bunch of other useless stuff that is cool. It is also a venue where you can learn about existing and up-and-coming tech businesses! I was...
SXSW Adventures Day 5: Celebrating the VHS Tape with 'Rewind This!' and Celebrating the Film Festival Winners!

SXSW Adventures Day 5: Celebrating the VHS Tape with ‘Rewind This!’ and Celebrating the Film Festival Winners!

After a day of meetings and running around like crazy, I only had the chance to watch two films today. One was Rewind This!, a documentary that explored the rise, fall, and the current resurgence of the VHS tape. I would really like to write a longer review/commentary of this movie AFTER the festival and...
SXSW Adventures Day 4: 'Bates Motel' is Your New Favorite Show and 'Zero Charisma' Makes RPGs Cool Again

SXSW Adventures Day 4: ‘Bates Motel’ is Your New Favorite Show and ‘Zero Charisma’ Makes RPGs Cool Again

Today was a busy day and considering I am dead tired, I am going to make today’s wrap up short, sweet and with lots of pictures. In essence, it will be a wrap-up of the day’s events via my Instagram account and my tweets. Enjoy. Started off with a screening of A&E’s new series Bates...
SXSW Adventures Day 3: 'Downloaded' and Being Enchanted by the 'Some Girl(s)' Crew

SXSW Adventures Day 3: ‘Downloaded’ and Being Enchanted by the ‘Some Girl(s)’ Crew

Day 3 of SXSW included a lot of running around town trying to make appointments, interviews and screenings. First up on the schedule was a Don Jon (formerly Don Jon’s Addiction press day with with writer/director/actor of the film Joseph Gordon Levitt and Tony Danza. (You’ll get to read more on that later). I immediately...
SXSW Days 1 and 2: 'Burt Wonderstone', 'Evil Dead' and Decorative Urinal Stones

SXSW Days 1 and 2: ‘Burt Wonderstone’, ‘Evil Dead’ and Decorative Urinal Stones

I have gone through two days of SXSW and I am already delirious from lack of sleep. In fact, it is currently 3:43 a.m. CST as I am writing this — and this is after going one hour ahead for Daylight Savings Time. To add to that I am still trying to adjust to Pacific...
