Midsummer Scream 2018

This past weekend - July 28, 2018 - was my first time attending the Midsummer Scream Halloween Festival in Long Beach, CA. It's only in its third year and it's already very successful.

Interview 5 – MrMeathook

I got my love of horror from my cousin Daryl (YouTuber MrMeatHook.) Growing up he was obsessed with horror films, including the original Friday the 13th AND introduce me to the fan magazine Fangoria.  This eventually led me to become a horror writer and director - so this week I pay tribute to my cousin Daryl on Mimosas with Michael. ----------------------------------- 1. So what is the inspiration behind your YouTube channel? Why that particular format/medium? My inspiration is that I’ve always wanted to entertain, but I’m pretty reclusive and socially awkward.

I definitely am one who found that I hadn't done nearly a fraction of things that I wanted to do in my l...

Famed actress Dee Wallace of E.T the Extra-Terrestrial as well as Cujo, The Howling, Critters, and the Hills Have Eyes stopped by to have mimosas with us. We talk about the importance of women in horror as well as great stories of working with such directors as Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, and Joe Dante. Come enjoy Mimosas with Michael and Dee. BIO: This attractive, happy go lucky blonde actress, educated at the University of Kansas and a former ballet soloist, first broke into both TV and cinema screens in the mid 1970s and through her appearances in several well remembered horror and sci-fi films, and Dee quickly gained a cult following among the fantasy film fans. Poor Dee always seemed to be on the wrong side of some malevolent person or evil creature....she was pursued by a clan o...
