Following its world premiere last year at the SXSW Film Festival, Johnny Frank Garrett’s Last Word is now out on home media (including DVD and VOD platforms) from Momentum Pictures, and to commemorate the film's release, we caught up with director Simon Rumley in our latest Q&A feature to discuss adapting the tragic real-life story, the film's shooting schedule, what initially drew him to the project, and more.
“He wants YOU for a best friend,” reads the bright yellow box adorned with images of a smiling, red-haired boy named Chucky. Nothing about this wide-eyed boy screams, “I’m going to kill you,” but what lies inside this box that Sideshow Collectibles sent our way is another story, one that is wonderfully rendered, expertly crafted, and, of course, downright sinister: Mezco Toyz’s Talking, Sneering Chucky doll (released by Sideshow), who has traded his “Good Guys” innocence for a knife.
Seeking proof of life after death, a man puts out a newspaper ad with a $30,000 reward for anyone who can show him that the afterlife truly exists in We Go On. A horror film with a lot on its mind, We Go On is now available to watch on the streaming service Shudder, and we recently caught up with the film's directors, Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton, for our latest Q&A feature.
Throughout a career of playing diverse characters on screen, Dolph Lundgren has gone up against Rocky Balboa, an alien drug dealer, and an army of enemies, but in his latest film, Don't Kill It, Lundgren fights what is possibly his most dangerous opponent yet: a demon that thrives on death. With Don't Kill It now out in select theaters and on VOD, I had the great pleasure of speaking with Lundgren and director Mike Mendez about balancing vicious violence with blood-drenched humor, sequel possibilities, and much more.
Starting today, horror fans can check into The Institute at theaters and on VOD via Momentum Pictures, and we caught up with co-director Pamela Romanowsky to discuss collaborating with co-director James Franco, the movie's unique filming location, and much more.

Out today in select theaters and on VOD is the new found footage horror film VooDoo, and for our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with the movie's writer and direct, Tom Costabile, to discuss the guerilla-style approach to VooDoo, shooting the "Hell" scenes, and much more.

Out of all the eclectic characters who inhabit the universe of Mike Mignola's Hellboy universe, the Visitor, an alien assassin who spared the demon's life is perhaps one of the most intriguing. Thankfully, Dark Horse's new comic book series The Visitor: How and Why He Stayed will shed more light on the mysterious alien, and with the first issue coming out tomorrow, we caught up with Chris Roberson (iZombie) to discuss collaborating with Mike Mignola on the new Hellboy series.
[Hello, readers! To celebrate Valentine's Day, the Daily Dead team thought it would be fun to do things a little differently this year. We're putting the spotlight on our favorite horror-loving characters from genre cinema—people who have represented our own fandom on screen and, in many cases, helped bring our passion for horror into the mainstream. Be sure to check here for more of our tributes to some of the greatest horror fans to ever grace the big screen.]
Knowing the horror genre inside and out can help you determine if your next-door neighbor is really a vampire (or if your mom has a date with a bloodsucker), and it can also help you stay one step ahead of a slasher with a phone fetish. But for two teenagers who absolutely adore The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, love of the genre helps them get through something more terrifying than any undead creature with a crimson diet or weapon-wielding maniac in Woodsboro. The monster they face is all too real: summer school.
In a world crawling with vampiric creatures, Mister helps equalize the fight between the living and the undead. Nick Damici's memorable character returns for a new journey fueled by Martin's (Connor Paolo) desire for revenge in Stake Land II. With the sequel out now on digital platforms and hitting Blu-ray and DVD on February 14th from Dark Sky Films, Daily Dead had the pleasure of speaking with Damici about reprising the role of Mister and much more.
As art student Skye, Aimee Teegarden finds herself caught up in the deadly curse of The Tape in Paramount Pictures' Rings. The inevitable meeting between Skye and Samara is one of my favorite scenes from the film, so I was excited to speak with Teegarden about smashing screens in that intense scene, working with Johnny Galecki, and what creeped her out the most on set.
Katee Sackhoff is known for playing kick-ass characters who can take on even the most menacing mercenary, but her character in Don't Knock Twice faces a different kind of threat: herself. Wrestling with personal demons, Sackhoff's Jess shows how powerful love can be when a witch threatens to tear her daughter away forever. With Don't Knock Twice out today in theaters and on VOD and HD Digital from IFC Midnight, Daily Dead spoke with Sackhoff about bringing out Jess' vulnerability and strengths, rescuing baby hedgehogs near the set, and how she'd love to reprise her role as Dahl in another Riddick movie (even if she had to win a dance-off to make it happen).
He's gone up against a collector of human body parts, a creepy next-door neighbor, and the Dark Knight himself, but in his upcoming film Back Fork, Josh Stewart is taking on a real-life epidemic: prescription opioids.
