Combining scifi with horror has always been a mixed bag of results; when they work, it’s delicious (Alien, The Thing), and when they don’t it can make you angry (Event Horizon). Debug falls somewhere in between, and makes you wonder what could have been.
This week, actor turned writer/director David Hewlett (Stargate: Atlantis) chats with Summer about his latest indie scifi-thriller Debug, which stars Jason Momoa, Jeananne Goossen, Adam Butcher, and Adrian Holmes.
David talks about how increasing a movie’s budget can often result in changes in creative control, and how the compromises start stacking up, and what happens when the film you get isn’t the film you thought you’d get.
WildClaw Theatre presents “Motel 666″: On the forgotten highways of the American Midwest, there is a vacancy for you at Motel 666. Run by a clerk of questionable morals and kept clean-ish by a trickster maid, Motel 666 is the finest establishment on the road to nowhere. Be you lonely or loved, guilty or relatively innocent, charmed or just plain down on your luck, you can rest your weary soul at Motel 666. (Note: Management cannot be held responsible for souls lost or misplaced.)
“Ash vs Evil Dead” is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on STARZ in fall 2015. Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead.
