Bigfoot Horror Stageplay Coming to Festival of Fear 2014

on August 18, 2014 | 2 Comments

As anyone who has ever attended a Festival of Fear knows, there is always something on offer that just simply kicks ass. From Clive Barker painting a brand-new work live in the flesh, to Udo Keir hosting a costume contest, the thrills consistently exceed expectations from year-to-year. And 2014 is no exception. Among the multitude of splendiferous offerings this year, Rue Morgue will be serving up something entirely novel, yet wholly ancient. For this time around, Festival goers will be treated to a live staged-reading of a no holds barred horror play.

JOE DANTE’S Q&A @ THE FESTIVAL OF FEAR

on August 29, 2013 | 4 Comments

Some good news. Some bad news.

If you missed Joe Dante’s Q&A from the 2013 Festival of Fear, the good news is we recorded it. The bad news is, the audio’s a bit wonky.

It’s just on the wrong side of being acceptable enough for the Rue Morgue Podcast but it’s still very listenable. So I’m uploading it anyway because it’s Joe Dante and he’s awesome and it’s a great interview!

Moderated by Rue Morgue’s Dave Alexander, Joe discusses upon all sorts of juicy bits and bobs, from his early fascination with Saturday afternoon matinees and Famous Monsters of Filmland to working with the likes of Roger Corman, Rob Bottin and Bruce Dern to making movies like Piranha, The Howling, The Twilight Zone, The ‘Burbs, Amazon Women on the Moon, The Hole and of course, Gremlins.

Actual studio exec dialogue as revealed by Mr. Dante in this Q&A:

Exec: These GREMLINS are so disgusting. They blow their nose on the curtains. And do we need to have so many of them?

Spielberg: Well, we could cut them all out and call the movie, PEOPLE!

Slooshy well,
