On this episode of The Filmcraziest Show, I was able to talk with Vancouver-based British actress Georgia Waters, where we spoke about her roles on Freeform’s fantasy mermaid show Siren, where she played the role of Eliza in the second and third seasons; as well as her role as Rose in the 2020 horror film Toys of Terror.
Slaxx is a new horror film about a pair of killer jeans that attacks a Canadian clothing store on the night before a big sale. Reading that synopsis, you’ve likely already decided if that’s the kind-of film for you – and if it is, it’s a real treat as it blends great gore FX, comedy and commentary on the retail industry into a compact 77-minute runtime. I was able to chat with director and co-writer Elza Kephart about her film, where we get into the concept of it, gore, VFX, jeans puppetry and much more.
Ryan Murphy, showrunner of American Horror Story, revisits some of his Glee roots by directing The Prom, a movie adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name.

In Chick Fight, Malin Akerman's Anna discovers her late mother's fight club when Anna is at rock bottom. She trains and with misguided confidence challenges the film's villain, Olivia (Bella Thorne) to a fight. This starts one of the most boring underdog stories I've ever seen, with flat acting and a lot, a LOT of slow-motion. Read more to learn why you should skip it.
Here’s another episode of The Filmcraziest Show featuring a Christmas film, as I chat with Robert Bockstael (pictured in the featured image in the background on the right) who plays Captain Jacobs in the new Mel Gibson film Fatman. In Fatman, a rowdy, unorthodox Santa Claus (Gibson) fights to save his declining business by taking on a government contract proposed by the military, represented by Captain Jacobs (Bockstael). Meanwhile, Billy (Chance Hurtsfield), a neglected and bratty 12-year-old, hires a hit man (Walton Goggins) to kill Santa after receiving a lump of coal in his stocking. The film also stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Eric Wolfe, and it is written and directed by Eshom Nelms and Ian Nelms.
