HORROR: I want to start off the new year with an update on Dan Walton's BIND! Things are "lookin' good" and moving forward in pre-production for this low budget horror feature. You all know I am playing Joan and, speaking of "lookin' good", I am excited to have the adorable and talented Raine Brown cast in the role of Summer. Raine will be joining me and the stunning Christa Campbell, who has been cast as Cherry...yeah, guys...it is true!!! ;)
Get out your calendars for another special horror treat! Gotta give props to my boys, so I am listing the press release below...
FISHER & SCHECK TALK REAL LIFE HORROR TALES WITH PARRISH RANDALL AT HORRORMOVIEFANS.COM INDIE HORROR RADIO!
TUNE IN SUNDAY, JANUARY 4TH 2009 (7:05PM CENTRAL STANDARD TIME) AT: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/hmfradio
Ring in the new year with brutal tales of real life horror as lived by horror legend, Hart D. Fisher, and told on a sordid night of talk radio as Parrish Randall turns up the juice on HorrorMovieFans.com Indie Horror Radio! Join Parrish and his guests indy sleaze meister Keith J. Crocker (Blitzkrieg: Escape from Stalag 69 and The Bloody Ape), rising horror star Roger Scheck (Nobody Loves Alice), and the scariest man in America and new horror show host Hart D. Fisher (American Horrors, Poems for the Dead, The Garbage Man) where they will discuss their current projects and Mr. Fisher and Mr. Scheck discuss the shocking story behind their current documentary project in which all of the darkest corners of Mr. Fisher’s life are explored with all new interviews and never before seen personal footage.
When Roger Scheck began looking for his next feature film project, after his searing directorial debut (Nobody Loves Alice), he was brought to a dead stop upon meeting the controversial publisher turned filmmaker. For the first time ever, Hart Fisher opens up about subjects that still bear scars as fresh as when they first formed. The murder of his first love & live in girlfriend during filming of his debut feature film, The Garbage Man; the legal battles fought over the publication of his Jeffrey Dahmer comics; the events which led to a threatened KKK protest march on his home in Illinois; what brought him out to Los Angeles and eventually led to him running the show at rock superstar Glenn Danzig's Verotik in 1995 and the creation of the most controversial comic book in 50 years (Verotika 4's "A Taste of Cherry"), the shut down of Planet Comics in Oklahoma City, the true story behind Hart D. Fisher's "Death" in a 1998 April Fools Day prank gone wrong, discovering a young Gerard (My Chemical Romance Frontman) Way and taking the young artist (at the tender age of 15) under his wing, the decade long legal battle to keep the murderer of his first love in prison. If Fisher hid many of the experiences in his life, which at the time turned him into an insane burned out shell of man, those secrets wounds are laid bare in this shocking new documentary project helmed by Roger Scheck.
Real life horror fans are not going to want to miss out on the first time Mr. Fisher speaks about subjects that nearly killed him, let alone been discussed in public. Tune in for what an amazing story for the new year.
HIGH DRAMA: Drama follows me EVERYWHERE...or, at least, to Philly! :) Okay, so I'm at LAX waiting at the insanely crowded airport to go to Philly for the holidays. A seat just happens to open up next to me and who sits down...director Rachel Goldberg! We don't know each other, so I am minding my biz reading a script, our flight's delayed and we start yapping! It turns out we are both friends with Denise Gossett, actress and Shriekfest owner! We laughed, exchanged cards and Rachel suggested I read her drama/fantasy feature, I CAN'T HEAR YOUR NAME, which she will direct. Really intense and well-written story...I would say look out for this talented lady in the new year!
Now, an extra special Philly treat was our Cohen/Spector Family holiday dinner! Ladies (and, JERSEY Boys), I got to sit next to our multi-talented Broadway star cousin, Jarrod Spector, who plays Frankie Valli in the famous Broadway musical JERSEY BOYS! Belasco, don't be jealous! ;) All I have to say is, "Oh what a night"...
May all your DREAMS & NIGHTMARES come true in 2009!!! :)
Love & Horror,
XO Brooke Lewis
