Mike Phalin 0
Actor David Clennon sat down to speak with us about an interesting film called Welcome to the Men’s Group. Clennon has seen his fair share of things as an actor, from Peter Sellers’s last great role, to an intergalactic shape-shifting alien, but what about complexity of a man’s psyche when he sequestered away with other […]

The town of Midnight, Texas has its share of power couples: Olivia & Lem and Fiji & Bobo. Though the former were established before the start of season one, the audience got to watch as the latter came together after a series of unfortunate events. How did Dylan Bruce  Parisa Fitz-Henley cultivate such a believable on-screen […]

Francois Arnaud Talks Xylda’s Departure and ‘Midnight, Texas’ Season 2

Mike Phalin 0
Without Xylda (Joanne Camp) we would not have a few key elements that make Midnight, Texas great. Manfred’s grandmother gave Lem (Peter Mensah) his ability to drain energy rather than blood to satiate his vampiric desires. Her wisdom brought Manfred (Francois Arnaud) to Midnight just when the town needed someone with his powers the most. When […]

Artist, angel, outcast. Midnight, Texas is home to many special individuals, but Joe Strong (Jason Lewis) is truly a being caught between two worlds. Having been cast out of heaven for falling in love with a conflicted demon, Joe’s story hits home for many of us who feel alone in a society so torn by […]

Event Report: Dr. Paul Bearer Lives in ‘Hi Noon, Goodbye Dr. Paul’

Mike Phalin 0
The character of Dr. Paul Bearer is a legend in the world of horror hosts. Like Elvira and many others who graced televisions both locally and nationally, the good doctor would present us young horror fans with a “horrible old movie” every Saturday. Those of us who grew up in Florida in the ’80s and […]

The Lament Configuration: A Hellraiser Photo Shoot

Mike Phalin 0
Innocence, anger, and lust. All three hold a different outcome for the seeker of the puzzle box. An artisan cube of engineering genius, superb beauty, and hidden danger. Possibly the most iconic in the horror genre, the Lament Configuration first appeared on the Clive Barker novel “The Hellbound Heart” and brought to life on the […]
