The Night Crew episode 5 - STAKE LAND!!!
Hide your liquor, and oput on protective gear because The Night Crew are back. After battling infectious disease, viral entities, and screwy ftp shenanigans, it seems that our special brand of depravity is indeed unstoppable.
This episode we are very proud and extremely happy to bring you listeners a show dedicated to the release of the new film STAKE LAND, an insaneley entertaining vampire apocalypse flick courtesy of writer/director Jim Mickle and co-writer/star Nick Damici. These two blew a hole in indy horror with their first feature film together, MULBERRY ST., and now with this sophomore effort they raise the stakes (har har) and really show what can be done on a small budget with creative direction and a good cast. STAKE LAND made the number one spot of my Top Ten at TWITCH FILM last season, and I really hope the world catches on to what I already know. Which would be the creative team of Mickle and Damici are a force to be reckoned with. Mark my words.
Also joining us are cast members Connor Paolo (from television's Gossip Girl, but you've never seen him like this), genre icon and all-around cool cat Danielle Harris, actor Sean Nelson (who you may remember as "Fresh" from the film of the same name), and genre lover Michael Cerveris who plays the baddie in STAKE LAND.
Plus, to throw a couple of extra garlic cloves into the salad, Thom and I reminisce about our favorite vampire films and share memories of a vampire obsessed childhood, and the lovable Mars Homeworld (of Dead House Music) calls in with a report on vampires and how they've changed throughout history.
All the regular columns will return next week, and we will be introducing new contributors Lee Gambin (Fangoria magazine) and Jessica Dwyer (Horror Hound magazine) over the next couple of weeks. next episode join us for a discussion with old Hollywood expert/author/all around awesome guy David Del Valle. You wanna hear some good stories about Tinseltown? Then you won't want to miss this one, trust me. This guy...is a cornucopia of walking history.
So grab a mop and help start cleaning up all this blood we spilled on The Night Crew - Operation: STAKE LAND.
THE NIGHT CREW!!!
