Brian Brushwood is something of an "alternative" magician. Attend his show and you might see a stomach turning bit he calls "The Human Twistey Straw," Brian hammering nails up his nose, or perhaps cutting off his own tongue. All this month he's performing at Universal Studios "Halloween Horror Nights" in Orlando, Florida, and I was pretty blown away by his show after attending it a few weeks back. Here's what happened when we tracked him down to toss a few questions his way.
Lucky Mckee is the creative genius behind 2002's "May," a moving tale of a girl willing to do anything to make a friend. He followed that up with 2006's "The Woods," a film which was marred by creative strife between Lucky and the studio, and a high profile project named "Red" (based on the Jack Ketchum novel) which recently fell through. He's also taken a detour into acting by starring in Angela Bettis' directorial debut "Roman," in which he plays the lead character. He's currently resting his creative muscles and working on his official site which will launch with the New Year, and he stopped by today to answer a few questions we had to toss at him.
The year was 1980, the film was "Friday the 13th," and the star was Adrienne King. After being immortalized on screen as the woman who killed Mrs Voorhees, King disappeared from the spotlight. Now, almost 30 years later, Adrienne has a new website and a renewed connection with her fans. I sat down to talk to her this past weekend about getting back in the game, as well as a few pressing questions I've always wondered about.
