After Party Massacre interview with Kristoff Bates

After Party Massacre horror movie

The After Party Massacre centers around a mysterious female fan – Scarlett – who attends a live performance by the metal bands Incantation and Soulless. At this show – Scarlett soon found herself thrown into the dark depths of torture and depravity showing what happens when you push – an already damaged mind – too far.

During this show – Scarlett encounters a forcibly rough fan that had followed her into an empty corner of the venue. During this altercation she has flashbacks of a dark past and it transforms her into a bloodthirsty killer on a mission to kill her attacker plus anyone and everyone else in her way (friend – fan and foe alike) until only a pile of bodies is left within this bloody massacre.

We caught up with director, Kristoff Bates, to talk about After Party Massacre.

Norman Reedus Comments on Season 2 of The Walking Dead

Fan favorite, Norman Reedus (“Daryl”) recently spoke with Daemon’s TV on what fans of The Walking Dead season two can expect when the show resumes in February. “I can say that in the second half, after this hiatus, people are done talking,” he told Daemon’s TV. “It’s all kind of firecrackers from here on out. It gets more action packed. The first part of the season, it gets slow when people have to talk. That’s just how it works. I think the writers have done such a great job with setting up storylines and explaining them when they need to be explained, not over talking it and not over thinking it. There are certain things that need to be said to keep the story moving and I think they’ve done a good job with it. I know when people watch the show they go, ‘More zombies. More death.’ But you have to do a bit of talking. Otherwise it’s ‘Transformers.'”

Evil Dead Update

MTV (remember “music television”), caught up with Diablo Cody about her work on script for The Evil Dead remake. “It was really important again to the filmmakers that it remain totally grounded in reality and timeless,” she said. “They weren’t trying to make some hip trendy horror movie full of pop culture references. I really hope people don’t think that that’s what I was hired to do. I came in and worked on characters and relationships, things like that.” Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell are producing The Evil Dead for director Fede Alvarez. No word yet as to when it will begin shooting. It has already been confirmed that this incarnation will not feature an Ash character.
