Latest news

While travelling I was lucky to catch up with a couple of filmmakers to discuss their latest endeavours. In London I caught up with Matthew Metcalf and Alan Harris, the producers of the forthcoming New Zealand horror film, The Ferryman. Starring John Rhys Davies; the duo promise that the film will be a gory return to the 80s glory days of The Evil Dead, The Thing and Braindead. I can hardly wait! My interview will appear in Shivers near the time of the films release.

The always-entertaining Lloyd Kaufman welcomed me into Troma’s NYC office with open arms and excitedly discussed his latest horror masterpiece Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead. It tells the story of a fast food establishment that is built over an Indian burial ground with disastrous results. My chat with Lloyd will appear in a future issue of Filmink.

As always, it was a pleasure to catch up with the guys at Visual Imagination. I’m very happy to report that the July issue of Film Review features my all-new set report from Superman Returns plus highlights from my interviews from the pages of Starburst; that’s twenty pages of Superman Returns fun by yours truly.

To round things off the second issue of Smoke and Mirrors is on the shelves now and features my interview with Wil Cohen, the man who handles the special effects on the new series of Dr Who. Talk of werewolves and Cyberman bodes well for the new series.
