"Vice's" Ambyr Childers Talks Pulling a Gun on Bruce Willis, More

Actress Ambyr Childers is quickly making a name for herself in different genres on television and in movies. Since taking her first job in the BBC comedy series "S Club 7 in L.A.," she's moved on to bigger opportunities like a role in the popular long-running American soap "All My Children" and supporting characters in "The Master," "Gangster Squad," "2 Guns," and several others. With "Vice," Childers re-enters the world of science fiction she first dabbled with in the award-winning 2011 independent film "Love."

I had the pleasure of interviewing Ms. Childers about her work on "Vice." She shared her experiences working with Bruce Willis and tells readers what to expect from the movie. Childers also expands on her role of Kelly the "Artificial" and takes us behind the scenes of the making of the film.

Writer / Director Lowell Dean Introduces Us to "WolfCop"

Writer / Director Lowell Dean has a varied roster of television shows and movies he’s helmed since his career kicked off in 2006. Not content to simply stay within one genre, he’s used his talents on everything from reality and documentary series to horror films. “Wolfcop” is his latest release and it will please fans that are always up for some gore and horrifyingly ridiculous fun.

I had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Dean about his time making “Wolfcop.” He shared what viewers can expect from the film and the challenges faced when creating a sophisticated piece of independent cinema. Even though it’s his written word, I’m pretty sure his sense of humor will resonate through this interview.

Scream Factory Resurrects "Blacula" and Its Sequel for Blu-ray

Scream Factory performs its magic again by reviving not one but two cult classics from the grave. Blaxploitation gems “Blacula” and “Scream, Blacula, Scream” get the high-definition treatment in this must-have double feature. However, I can’t imagine the release won’t face some controversy based on some of its “dated” content.

Batgirl Goes Up Against a City Full of Jokers

Batgirl: Endgame #1 is a unique little one-shot brought to us by the folks at DC Comics. Although Cameron Stewart and Brendan Fletcher are credited with writing the story, their actual work is only represented by one word bubble which contains “Phew” and some “HaHa’s” floating in the city air. It’s 20 pages of Bengal’s artwork telling the tale in gorgeously colored illustrations.

Director / Writer Petr Jakl Talks About Supernatural Horror "Ghoul"

Petr Jakl has come a long way from his roots in Prague, Czechoslovakia. He started out with roles in foreign films in the late 1990s and early 2000s and quickly found a spot in Hollywood playing supporting characters in movies like “xXx” and “AVP: Alien vs. Predator.” Not content to stay in front of the camera, Jakl has now written and directed two of his own projects. The latest one, “Ghoul,” is hitting select theaters on March 20th.

I had the opportunity to interview Mr. Jakl while he was busy promoting the film. We talked about the rich history, superstitions, the supernatural leanings of the Ukrainian people, and more about the background of the movie “Ghoul.” Read on to climb inside the head of this up and coming director, writer, producer, and actor.

Where's the Anarky We're Promised in DC: Endgame #1?

DC Comics gives fans another one-shot prequel to their current Batman event through Detective Comics: Endgame. There’s no denying the cover of the issue featuring a figure wearing an Anarky mask with a smile painted on it is eye-catching. However, many will be disappointed as to what they’ll get on the inside of a book holding the subtitle “Anarky is No Joke!”

Ridley Scott's Soulless "Exodus: Gods and Kings" Disappoints

I’m not entirely sure if Ridley Scott even read the story of Moses and the deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt found in the Holy Bible before agreeing to climb behind the camera and direct “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” Here we have an extremely fallible attempt at re-visiting what Cecil B. DeMille already perfected twice in two different decades with “The Ten Commandments.” While those movies still took artistic freedoms, they were one hundred times more close to the source material than what we see here.
