Big Daddy Horror Reviews had the chance to interview Horror favorite Kelli Maroney just recently, so be sure to head on over to see what the star of Night of the Comet and Chopping Mall has been up to HERE!!

BDHR also has a great new article on Horror's tendency to disregard previous plot elements if you follow this little link right HERE!!

Shaun Anderson, author of The Celluloid Highway, has begun a month long tribute to Bavarian filmmaker Werner Herzog, with three posts up now which can be found HERE!!


Liam Underwood has begun a bold undertaking in a new overview of the six Leprechaun movies, which have been given far too much thought and consideration by his own accord HERE!!

The unlikely slasher villain's journey through all six films has been traced, from his roots in the first Leprechaun movie to his frankly fantastic excursion to space, and then his frollicks in the hood. And if the little Irish tyke isn't enough to tempt you over, there's also boobs. What's not to like?!


Michael from Watching Hammer has also brought an important piece of Horror news to everyone's attention this week, please be sure to read on below and do your part to save Hammer Horror's Bray Studios:

As some may be aware, Bray Studios in England are in danger of closure and demolition to make way for housing. This would amount to the destruction of an important part of British film and cultural history. Bray was home to Hammer Films for many years (where iconic productions like The Curse of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Mummy were filmed) and subsequently was used in the production of many other films (including the Rocky Horror Picture Show and the model work for Alien) and TV programmes (including Space 1999 and Dr Who). The Save Bray Studios campaign, organised by Hammer expert Robert Simpson, is trying to raise awareness of this imminent threat and encourage others to do likewise. As such, if you love classic and horror cinema please consider taking part in the following, and inform others of it:

The Watching Hammer blog (http://watchinghammer.blogspot.com/) would like to propose next week (Sun - Sun) as a week of "Blog on Bray Days".

Please take part and choose a day next week as your "Blog on Bray Day" to write a post on Bray Studios, the place they hold in cinema history, the danger they currently face, and what people can do, including relevant links.

The Save Bray Studios facebook page can be found here - http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=106861216022812
The Save Bray Studios blog can be found here - http://braystudios.blogspot.com/
The Watching Hammer blog has posted a list of suggested things people can do, including addresses to write and/or email here - http://watchinghammer.blogspot.com/2010/07/save-bray-studios.html

I'm reading "All Heads Turn when the Hunt Goes by" by John Farris. This one would have made a good movie.
