Q&A with Emma Bell (Amy): (again, beware of spoilers for both the series and Emma’s appearance in Adam Green’s Frozen)

Q: In Frozen you were the only character to survive. Here you were the first lead character to die. How did those experiences compare?

A: In Frozen, my character has to watch the other two people that she’s with die — but there was this desire to keep moving and keep going. With Amy, the reverse happened. I’m on the ground looking up at the stars, and Laurie Holden, who plays my sister, is crying her eyes out over me. But after that sadness came a relief, almost. It just became, “Oh I feel so bad for everyone else.”

Q: What did you have to do to make it look like you were being eaten by a walker?

A: I have to say, a large part of what makes that scene work is Greg Nicotero [Special FX Make-Up Designer]. He’s [also] the walker that bites into me. It’s a prosthetic they put on my neck that they then color over to make it look like it’s my skin. Underneath it’s a pouch of blood and some, I guess, hose they ripped up so it looked like it was tendons. When he would bite into my neck, it would explode the bag of blood and he would rip into the hose…tendons so it looked just perfect. I wish I could take credit for that.

Q: But you had to sell your reaction, right?

A: When he was taking a bite, I could feel it. Obviously, my skin was protected, but you could feel the pressure of him and you could feel this river of blood come dripping down my side, and that was enough to make me have a conniption, really. It was very believable. All I had to do was look down and my arm looked like it had a huge bite in it. You could trace your finger on my skin and it would drop down into the bloody part and then it would go back up on the other side. You know what I mean? Like, literally, a chunk had been taken out of my arm. It was terrifying.

Q: I’ve been told that you and Laurie Holden developed a special bond. How did that come about?

A: It starts back around January of last year, to be honest. She had a friend who emailed her saying, “You need to check out my friend’s daughter. She’s in a film going to Sundance and I think you need to check it out.” Then, when she finds out I’m cast as her sister, she’s like, “Emma Bell, that sounds so familiar.” So she goes back in her emails and sure enough that email is talking about me. She called me, and then while we were on the phone we found out we have the exact same birthday.

Q: Sounds like it was meant to be.

A: It was! And we really just love each other. We talk all the time and she’s very special to me. I’m more than lucky to have had her be my sister on the show.

Q: Do you like mermaids?

A: I do. I know, it’s really funny. When I read that script I was like, “Oh my gosh, it’s totally me.” I love anything mystical: mermaids, fairies, unicorns. I have little blown glass figurines of fairies that I hang in my windows. I go the Renaissance Fair every year. My boyfriend makes fun of me, but it’s fine. Whatever, he doesn’t have to believe.

Q: What was the best part of being in “The Walking Dead”?

A: One of the best moments I had was walking onto the survivor camp set. Everything was there. The campgrounds, the tents. We had fires, the RV, everything. I’m a huge fan of “Lost”, and one of the things I loved about it was that you felt like you were on this island with these people. Obviously the shows are very different, but there are certain elements that parallel each other.

Q: What would you miss the most if there really was a zombie apocalypse?

A: Chocolate, for one. I would just be in withdrawal. I literally eat chocolate every day, several times a day.

Q: Was Comic-Con your first exposure to the fanboy audience?

A: Yes, for sure. I had no idea there were that many fans out there. We actually shot my death scene until like 5:30 in the morning, and we got on a plane to go to San Diego at 8 that same morning. Even so, I was beyond myself with excitement. I was just jumping up and down and Laurie just looks at me and she’s like, “Just wait, Emma. Just wait.” About halfway through the day I crashed. I was like, “Wow, that is a lot of people who want to see our show.” And they are so on top of it, too. Of course, they’d ask, “Do you get bitten?” So I had to come up with funny, witty responses that didn’t give anything away, and let me tell ya: When you’re on three hours of sleep, that doesn’t always work.

Q: Will fans get to see Amy come back as a walker?

A: Can I answer that?

Alien: Covenant’s Carmen Ejogo Joins True Detective Season 3



“From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows…”

The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” was one of the best seasons ever put on a TV screen. Hands down. The second season was another story altogether. While not a complete waste of time (Colin Farrell owed) the season was basically merely ‘meh’.

But what about “True Detective” season 3?

Well, a few months back it was announced that the third season had been greenlit by HBO, with creator Nic Pizzolatto returning to pen the series and director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) taking the helm of the episodes.

Today we have news that Carmen Ejogo – who you may recognize Ejogo from such recent fright flicks as It Comes at Night, Alien: Covenant, and The Purge: Anarchy – will be joining the previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) for Season 3.

Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, who THR describes as “an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.”

Nice Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens and season one stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as well as original director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown are also credited as exec producers.


A macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Danielle Harris Tried to Get Jamie Lloyd into New Halloween Movie



One of the top films all of us are looking forward to the most here at Dread Central is Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel/reboot thing to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

The new Halloween (2018) film is written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is all set to be directed by Green this year. Recently we learned that original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis was going to be returning to the new film.

Not only that, but Curtis’ classic character Laurie Strode would have a daughter… played by Judy Greer. But what about Danielle Harris?

After all, Harris was the star of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Curse of Michael Myers. Let alone, she had a starring role in both Rob Zombie’s remake and it’s sequel. So how about the new film?

Turns out Harris tried to get her character Jamie Llyod (aka the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode) from Halloween 4 and 5 into the new film… but she was turned down by Blumhouse and the new creative team. That sucks.

Harris was pretty bummed about the whole deal and took to Facebook recently to clear the air. You can check out quotes from her video, along with the video itself, below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know how much you would have liked to see Harris return to Halloween in the comments below or on social media!

“What I am bummed about is… [Laurie] has a daughter,” Harris says. “I was okay with it when she had a son… but they’re saying it’s the last one and… she has a daughter. And it’s not Jamie. It’s just kind of a bummer, I guess. I think somebody had said, it wouldn’t have hurt the movie to have Jamie reunited with [Laurie]. But that didn’t happen.”

“We did put in a call, thought it’d be kinda cool even just to have a little flashback…” She continues. “They were not interested. So. I tried.”

Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.

Through the Cracks – Trick or Treat (1986) Review



Starring Marc Price, Tony Fields, Lisa Orgolini, Glen Morgan, Gene Simmons, and Ozzy Osbourne

Directed by Charles Martin Smith

I have been a horror fan for more than half of my life at this point. Meaning I have seen most of the quality horror offerings under the sun. But that said, every once in awhile a classic sneaks past so we wanted to create this “Through the Cracks” review section for such films.

Case in point, I had never seen the Halloween horror flick Trick or Treat until last night. I know, right? How the hell did that happen? But these things do happen and so for everyone that has seen the flick a million times, this will be a review of the movie from a super horror fan that – at the age of 33 – is seeing Trick or Treat for the very first time.

Now let’s get to it.

First off you have to love the movie’s plot. Mixing horror and heavy metal seems like a given, yet preciously few films Frankenstein these two great tastes together.

Like many of you out there, I am a big metal fan as well as a big horror fan. The two seem to go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Or Jason and horny campers.

I dig bands like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and even those hair metal bands (Dokken forever!) and I’m well aware of the legends surrounding playing these records backward.

Off the top of my head, the only other flick that combines the two to this degree is the (relatively) recent horror-comedy Deathgasm. I say more horror-metal flicks! Or should we call it Metal-Horror? Yeah, that’s a much more metal title.

It only makes sense that someone, somewhere would take the idea of “What if Ozzy Osbourne really was evil and came back from the dead (you know, if he had passed away during his heyday) to torment a loner fan?” Great premise for a movie!

And Trick or Treat delivers on the promise of this premise in spades. Sammi Curr is an epic hybrid of the best of the best metal frontmen and his resurrection via speaker is one of the great horror birthing scenes I have seen in all my years.

Add to that the film feels like a lost entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. More specifically the film feels like it would fit snugly in between two of my favorite entries in that series, Dream Warriors and The Dream Master.

This movie is 80’s as all f*ck and I loved every minute of it.

And speaking of how this film brought other minor classics to the forefront of my brain, let’s talk about the film’s central villain, Sammi Curr. This guy looks like he could share an epic horror band with the likes of Mary Lou from Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II and the Drill Killer rocker from Slumber Party Massacre Part II.

Picture that band for a moment and tell me they aren’t currently playing the most epic set in Hell as we speak. I say let’s see an Avengers-style series of films based on these minor horror icons sharing the stage and touring the country’s high school proms!

In the end Trick or Treat has more than it’s fair share of issues. Sammi Curr doesn’t enter the film until much too late and is dispatched way too easily. Water? Really? That’s it?

That said, the film is still a blast as director Charles Martin Smith keeps the movie rocking like an 80’s music video with highlights being Sammi’s rock show massacre at the prom and his final assault on our hero teens in the family bathroom.

Rockstar lighting for days.

Even though the film has issues (zero blood, a rushed ending) none of that mattered much to this horror hound as the film was filled to the brim with striking horror/metal imagery and a killer soundtrack via Fastway and composer Christopher Young.

Plus you’ve got to love the cameos by Gene Simmons (boy, his character just dropped right out of the movie, huh?) and Ozzy Osbourne as a mad-as-hell Preacher that isn’t going to take any more of this devil music. P.S. Watch for the post-credits tag.

More than a few of my closest horror buddies have this film placed high on their annual Halloween must-watch lists. And after (finally) viewing the film for myself, I think I just may have to add the film to mine as well. Preferably on VHS.

Trick or Treat is an 80’s horror classic. If you dig films like Popcornand if you put the film off like I did, remedy that tonight and slap a copy in the old VHS/DVD player.

Just don’t play it backward… God knows what could happen.

All said and done, I enjoyed the hell out of my first viewing of Trick or Treat. But what do YOU think of the film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know below or on social media!

Now bring on Trick or Treat 2: The Prom Band from Hell, featuring Sammi Curr, Mary Lou Maloney, and Atanas Ilitch’s Driller Killer from Slumber Party Massacre Part II!

  • Trick or Treat (1986) 3.5


Charles Martin Smith’s Trick or Treat is a sure-fire Halloween treat for fans of 80’s horror flicks, as well as fans of heavy metal music.
