If there were not already enough horror-related events to attend to in the Chicagoland area, one need not be alarmed because a convention dedicated to the most popular television show on the planet right now featuring zombies, or “walkers” as the show based upon the comic book THE WALKING DEAD calls them, is coming and it is all things WALKING DEAD-related. Or so I had thought! (more…)
SHU-IZMZ RADIO had a chance to talk again with the U.K.’s Dark Composer, Tony Longworth. What better way to bring in the creepy month of October, always filled with ghouls, ghosts, and goblins than by hearing about a composer whose career has been spent composing creepy soundtracks and musical arrangements to send chills down one’s spine. With two new albums out, and his music being chosen for a new Haunted Amusement Park in the U.K., listeners should be intrigued to hear what he has to say about every horror fan’s favorite month. This episode solely focuses on our interview. I will be following up with a 2nd part playing a bunch of tracks and talking about some of my favorite aspects of every horror fan’s favorite holiday.

SHU-IZMZ RADIO had a chance to chat with San Antonio, Texas-based author Bowie Ibarra about his latest novel, thoughts on zombies, interest with semi-professional and professional wrestling, and why beer and bush are always a wonderful combination. With beers in hand, Bowie lets listeners know what plans he has for his website http://www.zombiebloodfights.com. Bowie’s latest book, BIG CAT, comes up in the chat as well as some of his other projects such as (more…)
A very entertaining interview with actor, writer, producer, and director G. Larry Butler, a man whose been in over 100 films and t.v. shows, as well as having written a book (Here Lies Madness) and being a very entertaining interview. I had a chance to watch Butler in the film PANMAN (2011) as he played the character Professor Hunter in a horror-comedy about a murderer going around killing culinary students armed with a pan and wearing a big, metal pot on his head. Butler also talks about (more…)
It seems I forgot to post these awesome interviews up I did a while back on SHU-IZMZ RADIO on CORE OF DESTRUCTION RADIO. Thanks goes out to a friend whom tried looking for both of the interviews on my website and failed to find them. In fact, I could not find them either. Well, I guess shit happens from time to time. So here are both of the interviews in one easily downloaded link that is located at the very bottom of the post. The first interview is with an actor whom I have long enjoyed watching in one of my favorite horror/exploitation films (more…)
Last week I had the chance to finally sit down with a good friend, a mentor if you will, from the Midwest Horror Community: JON KITLEY. Jon runs his own website, Kitley’s Krypt, as well as having a column of the same name in HorrorHound Magazine. You also may have run into (more…)
In this episode of SHU-IZMZ RADIO on CORE OF DESTRUCTION RADIO I talk about all the craziness going on this month on the convention scene, as well as some upcoming events. I talk about some of the books I have been reading, movies I have been viewing, and some news. Also, the entire John Carpenter (HALLOWEEN, THE THING) Q&A from Flashback Weekend in Chicago, as well as the Q&A with Meg Foster (THEY LIVE, LORDS OF SALEM). (more…)
Here is the download link for the interview with the cast of PORTRAIT OF A ZOMBIE, an Irish Indie zombie flick that has a great deal more depth than one’s average zombie flick! Director/Writer BING BAILEY, writer LAURA MORAND BAILEY, actors STEVEN NEESON and PAUL O’BRYAN and actresses DIANE JENNINGS and GERALDINE McALINDEN were on hand to talk about the making of the film and all the juicy details that went into the production. (more…)
Shu had a chance to talk with Director Adam Rehmeier and actress Rodleen Getsic about their latest film, THE BUNNY GAME, a controversial film about a prostitute that hitches a ride with a trucker who has more in mind than just giving her a lift. The Blu-ray comes out from Autonomy Pictures this month and I will be reviewing it here at SHU-IZMZ, as well as having a follow-up interview with Adam and Rodleen to talk about the film. (more…)
Why not celebrate MOTHER’S DAY by listening to Shu rant about LARPING and a very cool short horror film? Hell, none of this has to do with Mother’s Day, but it still may be entertaining. Once again, my allergies have gotten the best of me. My congestion may be worse than any other horror film out there so enjoy my disgusting sound effects. Seriously, if any of you guys out there think LARPing is hilarious (Live Action RolePlay), you will want to hear me talk about MONSTER CAMP, DARKON, and THE WILD HUNT. Also, a promising short horror film entitled HIKE (2010), as well as hear about upcoming interviews and guests such as DINA RAE (author of HALOS OF THE DAMNED), the director, writer, and producer of HIKE Jennifer Campbell, Bill Oberst, Jr. (NUDE NUNS WITH BIG GUNS), and Maria Olsen (LORDS OF SALEM).
