Post Mortem

April 14, 2015

I think most horror fans are familiar with horror director, producer and writer Mick Garris. Creator of the Masters of Horror TV series, he’s penned The Fly II and Critters 2 as well as directed The Stand and Sleepwalkers – both based on Stephen King‘s novels – just to name a few of the titles on his résumé.

His great interview series Post Mortem – originally created for the now-defunct FEAR NET – are now available on YouTube. I love these! With a very laid back style, he interviews fellow horror creators such as Roger Corman, Wes Craven and Rob Zombie. The interviews have a great conversational flow that offers some nice insights into the artist behind the famous (or infamous) name – I can’t say I knew all too much about Frank Darabont – and the only complaint I have is that some of these feel a bit short. But hey, leave them wanting more!

The series is available on his official YouTube channel as well as MickGarrisInterviews.com. Check them out and give him a like on Facebook here.

Oh, man this is big. I mean real big. This is huge! Just found out that the December issue of Rue Morgue Magazine includes not only interviews and features on William Friedkin (it’s the 40th anniversary of The Exorcist), Wes Craven (regarding The Serpent and the Rainbow), the recently reformed (and touring) GOBLIN (!!!), but also a review/feature of Call Me Greenhorn‘s faux zombie-OST L’Isola dei Morti Viventi! Yikes! How’s that for an early X-mas present?

Wrapped in a gorgeous sleeve courtesy Jason Edmiston (you gotta check out his stuff on Facebook, it’s amazing!) and filled with tons more goodies plus a giveaway, you can get your copy here (subscriptions available too!) Once again, the zombie album:

R.I.P. Fred Lincoln

January 17, 2013

R.I.P.

Oh man, sad news as this was just posted on Fred Lincoln‘s personal page on Facebook:

Hello everyone that knew and loved my dad..This is his daughter, Angelica, speaking on his behalf. As many of you already know, his health has been declining rapidly during the past few months and today he passed. He was a fighter during the entire struggle, just like he was his entire life. I just wanted to update all of you that have been wondering on his condition and wanted to let you all know he loved you all very much. I’ve heard stories about nearly every one of you and want you to know he left peacefully. Thank you for all your love and support ♥

A true American original and a loveable rogue, Fred ‘Porn’ Lincoln made quite a name for himself among horror fans as he portrayed the cold psychopath ‘Weasel’ in Wes Craven‘s The Last House on the Left  in 1972 – but he was a porn legend starting out in the 70s as an actor and moved on to producing and directing up until 2006.

Battling disease for the last couple of years he passed away about an  hour ago. My deepest condolences to his friends and family. I’ll try to find more news to share as it reaches media.

UPDATE: Writer John Sanford sums up Lincoln’s career at XBIZ Newswire here (SFW).
