Here's a film I've been looking forward to watching since I came across it at last year's Nightstream Film Festival in October, and last week the trailer for Boys from County Hell was released. The film, premiering on Shudder as a Shudder Exclusive in the U.S. and Canada on April 22, is set in Ireland. Strange [...]

For this episode of The Filmcraziest Show I was joined by some of the team behind the new horror/comedy Paintball Massacre, including producer/actor Joe Hallett (who plays Aiden Jones in the film), actress Natasha Killip (who plays Lauren Bryce in the film), writer Chris Regan, and actor Nicholas Vince (who plays Somerset the Barman in [...]
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.
On this episode of The Filmcraziest Show, recorded at the tail end of September and released for the Christmas season, I spoke with writer and director Travis Irvine about his latest film Killer Raccoons 2: Dark Christmas in the Dark. The plot: On Christmas Eve, Casey Smallwood (Yang Miller) has just been released from prison after serving 10 years for underage drinking. He hops on the express train to Washington D.C., the Holiday Express, and it’s hijacked by an angry gang of domestic terrorists and government trained raccoons. Casey joins forces with a porter on the train to fight back against the terrorists. The film is written and directed by Travis Irvine.
Commitment can be a scary thing, and that’s especially how Sam (Charles Gould) feels about the matter. While visiting his childhood home over Christmas vacation with his girlfriend Ashley (Quinn Jackson), Ashley starts bringing up the idea of getting married and having children. Which, again, terrifies Sam. Added into the mix is Sam’s childhood friend Nolan (John Anderson), who he hasn’t seen in 10 years after the death of Nolan’s sister.
Now, I’ve called my podcast Filmcraziest Interviews in the past but this is the first version of my podcast with the new name The Filmcraziest Show, which will officially be its new name soon, though there will still be old episodes still to be posted where I still refer to it as Filmcraziest Interviews. Anyway, on this episode I am joined by writer and director Adam Stovall, as well as actor and co-writer MacLeod Andrews, to discuss their new film A Ghost Waits.
