Had a nice day today. Got lots done around the house and oh yeah, had a great phone conversation with Ashely Bell. I can't help it, when push comes to shove I'm just a big geeky fan and sometimes running this site allows me to do some really cool things and today was one of those days.
Around 4:30 this afternoon my phone rang and on the other end was the lovely Ms. Ashley Bell and we got to chat about what it was like to work on THE LAST EXORCISM. It's a pretty quick talk and yes I know, I'm a sucky interviewer. I usually have my man Dez handle these things but this one just happened fast and I was all that was available. I hate listening to my own voice and I'm apologizing in advance for my gushing geek-dom but it is what it is
Ashley is just great though and well worth having to suffer through.....me.
THE LAST EXORCISM came out today in a great combo disc extravaganza that is just loaded with special features. I'll have a review of that for you later but for now here's ASHLEY BELL.
He was there when the franchise kicked off so it only seems fitting that he be there at the end. Cary Elwes is back as Dr. Gordon in SAW 3D the supposed final installment in the mega popular franchise. I was a actually a little surprised to hear Cary was returning but I am glad to maybe find out exactly what happened to him after he pulled himself through that door.
In this short interview clip Cary talks about returning to the fray, working with Tobin Bell and working in 3D, among a few other things.
With SAW 3D performing very well at the box office this Halloween weekend I thought maybe you all would like to hear what some of the folks involved with the have to say.
My first interview tonight is Marcus Dunstan who along with partner Patrick Melton has penned the last couple of SAW installments. Actually, as far as I am concerned, they've pretty much saved the franchise.
Here Marcus talks about several different things ranging from where the ideas for the traps come from to working with Tobin Bell.
You already know that MY SOUL TO TAKE opens Friday right? In 3D as well. Been a lot of press this last week or so and I thought we would wrap it all up with a series of interviews from the press junket this past week.
Here's the first of a two part interview with Director Wes Craven where he discusses get back into the writing game and working on the flick.
I'll have part two posted here shortly so check back for the rest of the chat:
