One Question at a Time: An Interview with Alyssa Lobit

In Movies by MichaelWDenney0 Comments

Last summer I attended, as I do every year, Toronto’s FanExpo. While there, I had the opportunity to attend a screening of Scream Queen Danielle Harris’ directorial debut, the horror-comedy Among Friends. I was also fortunate enough to meet the film’s writer and star, Alyssa Lobit. Alyssa is very friendly, charming, and articulate; it seemed to me she would make …

The Legendary Last Man

In Movies by MichaelWDenney1 Comment

A few months back author Richard Matheson passed away. I thought as a bit of a tribute I would watch one of the movie adaptations of my favourite Matheson novel, I Am Legend. There have been four adaptations: The Last Man on Earth (1964) starring Vincent Price, The Omega Man (1971) starring Charlton Heston, the 2007 Will Smith vehicle I …

Seeking Harmony with the Infinite: An Interview with Jay Ferguson

In Funky Stuff by MichaelWDenney2 Comments

In recent months, fellow Cheese Magneteer, Scott Phillips, has been posting some entertaining interviews that made me want to try my hand at something similar. Scott has made a good start on the B-Movie industry so I thought I would try a slightly different niche for my first couple of interviews. Fortunately for me, Jay Ferguson, creator, writer, and director …

Do You Wanna Paaaar-tay!

Recently I attended a performance of Night of the Living Dead Live. (The production has now finished its run. However zombies are hard to keep down, so I highly recommend checking it out when it pops up again.) At the play, I was lucky enough to be sitting next to Russ Streiner, producer of the original Night of the Living …

Transparent Men, Human Flies, and Terror Kitties We’re playing a double-header today consisting of two very obscure 1950’s SF movies: The Transparent Man Vs. The Human Fly and Terror Is A Man. Both are entertaining, if flawed, though not fatally. First up, The Transparent Man Vs. The Human Fly, or as it is more commonly known, The Invisible Man Vs. …

The Least Horrific Horror Movie, Ever? Once again, your humble Cheese Magnet correspondent has to apologize for a long silence, but I spent the month of March basically being sick as a dog. Thawas no fun at all. I am almost back to normal, or as normal as it ever gets around here, so hopefully you-all will be seeing more …

We’ll Tear Your Soul Apart

In Movies by MichaelWDenney2 Comments

I’m a little ashamed to say that until last weekend, I had never seen Hellraiser. I had certainly heard about it. When it came out back in 1987, I can remember there being a bit of hype about how scary, violent, and gory it was. Stephen King was quoted as saying that writer/director Clive Barker was the future of horror. …

My Year in Movies:  The Best Your humble Cheese Magnet correspondent has been alternately working himself to death and suffering mightily and unfairly from the fact that he once had chicken pox as a child, but he has pulled himself together and dragged himself off his death and/or sick bed because, basically, he’s bored. So finally after weeks of anticipation, …

My Year in Movies: 2013 I usually start off a New Cheese Magnet Year with a “My Year In Movies” post and, as you see, this year is no different.  Sorry I took so long this time around, but I was behind in compiling my notes.  I saw 163 new (to this list) movies last year.  I’m taking a different …
