Sharknado: Heart of Sharkness: "Jared Cohn stars in Sharknado: Heart of Sharkness on DVD October 6 from The Asylum.

This one, a mockumentary in the style of Christopher Guest's catalog of faves, sees Cohn play David Moore, the filmmaker who first dreamed of “sharks in a tornado” and brought on disaster by using real sharks. The first "Sharknado"  was to be a movie never seen, a crime never reported, a tale never told. Until now!

Actor. Writer. Director….are we missing any other professions there, Jared?

Jared Cohn: Producer sometimes. Occasionally I find myself putting some of the pieces together to get a project going. I’ve produced a few features; sometimes you have to wear multiple hats in this business.

 How did you get started in this industry?

Jared Cohn: I like movies. I enjoy watching them, so I went to film school, and started doing some acting and worked some crew, and also was writing scripts. I moved to LA and started to gain some traction. There is no clear path so you often find yourself unsure of what to do.

You’ve done a lot of work for SyFy… is that how Sharknado came about?

Jared Cohn: No, I had to audition for the part. Atlantic Rim, which I directed aired on SyFy and I did play a small part in it, but other than that there is no connection with SyFy. I know the people at The Asylum well, and they were kind enough to allow me to audition and ultimately be apart of the project.

This is a mockumentary, right?

Jared Cohn: Yes.

Was it ever considered that Ian and Tara would be co-starring, too… or?

Jared Cohn: No, this predates the original Sharknado so creatively it wouldn’t have worked to have Ian or Tara in this version. We had a great cast though, Julie McCullough, Zack Ward and Rachel True were in this version.

Who is behind the camera on this one? 

Jared Cohn: Jeremy Wagener directed the movie. He has done some great documentaries so it was great to work with a real documentarian.

You’ve grown a beard for the movie. Is that different for you? Did it help you embody the character?

Jared Cohn: I like to change my look up a bit from movie to movie. Makes it interesting for me, and helps me escape from myself.

Why do you think the Sharknado series has been so popular?

Jared Cohn: The concept is so out there that people just love it. What’s not to like about sharks in a tornado?"


Horror Decor's Evil Pumpkin Ale Candle: "One of the many reasons that we love the fall season is the return of pumpkin flavored everything and among our favorites is beer. Just the smell alone puts a smile on our faces so we thought, "Why not try to capture that in candle form?" and POOF, our Evil Pumpkin Ale scented candle was born!

The scent combines pumpkin spice with subtle notes of beer to create a pleasant nod to our favorite fall beverage! The candle measures at 6.75" tall with the lid and has a burn time of approximately 45 hours. This item is only available for a limited time and orders must be placed by October 5th (U.S. only) in order to receive in time for Halloween."

I Am a Hero: Press Release: "MILWAUKIE, OR— Kengo Hanazawa’s award-winning zombie survival manga I Am a Hero begins at Dark Horse in early 2016. This nail-biting page-turner is sure to leave readers on the edge of their seats!

The zombie apocalypse has never been more surreal. A mentally unhinged manga artist witnesses the beginning of a zombie outbreak in Tokyo, and he’s certain of only two things: he’s destined to be the city’s hero, and he possesses something very rare in Japan—an actual firearm!

    About the Author - Tamika Jones

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
