B-movie Halloween goodness…Part 4

And now for one of the major influencers of Space Zombies: 13 Months of Brain-Spinning Mayhem!, my own silly shlock fest…a couple films by the late, great Edward D. Wood Jr., the reigning king of fun bad movies (as is Tommy Wiseau, but his movie, The Room, is a different kind of horror movie altogether). Bride of the Monster, 1955–this

And on with the B-movie horrors…Part 3

Time for some of those “so bad they’re good” movies…and these ones have semi-impressive casting! The Devil’s Rain, 1975, the year of my birth…mwah-ha-ha-ha…starring William Shatner, Tom Skerrit, Ernest Borgnine, Eddie Albert, Ida Lupino, Keenan Wynn and John Travolta in his extremely brief film debut!   What an incredible cast for such a crappy-good film!  Very much in line with

B-movie madness continued…Part 2

Horror of Dracula, 1958, a Hammer film.  You may have noticed that I have not selected the original Dracula with Bela Lugosi.  This is because I consider it more of a “classic” film than a B-movie, and frankly, it’s kinda less enjoyable.  Horror of Dracula stars Christopher Lee as the titular vampire and Peter Cushing, and though Bela Lugosi’s performance

Memories from Triple Take past…Kevin Risk

Last memory, for now, anyway.  A few stragglers may come in, but for now, let’s wrap up with Kevin Risk… Kevin: It’s hard not to think of the casts and crews when I think of Triple Take shows.

It’s time to hear from Moral Man…a Man of Great Importance…Narrator of Space Zombies…Jason Reilly… Jason: Lots of fun memories from Triple Take and one that stands out is filming the YouTube segments for the anniversary of Space Zombies.

Memories of Triple Take past…R.J. Downes

We’re winding down, but still a few memories to go!  Today, we have an original founder, R. J. (Rob) Downes… Rob:  My favourite memory of Triple Take is working on Crime and Etiquette and noticing that a certain actor was always hanging around, showing up early and generally making sure he was around to spend time with a certain producer.

Memories from Triple Take past…Allison McWood

We continue on with memories from many members of Triple Take Productions…today, Allison McWood… Allison: The one memory that stands out for me was how a prop from It Was Kit cultivated its own fan base. Stiffy the dead rat was used as a comedic device in the script, but somehow received just as many rave reviews as the actual
