In Part 1 of our exclusive chat with B-movie and home video pioneer Charles Band, we heard about his early days working for his father, director Albert Band, and how his love of collecting movies led to his own home video distribution company on the heels of Betamax’s success.
In 1989 Band returned to his indie filmmaking roots when he started Full Moon Productions and released the cult classic Puppet Master, which he co-wrote and produced. From there Full Moon took off and since then has released countless B-movie confections including the Subspecies and GingerDead Man series, several Trancers sequels, The Dead Hate the Living! and Evil Bong 1-3.
For Part Two of our video interview with Band for Dread Central’s Indie Horror Month celebration, we hear how Stan Lee served as the inspiration behind Band’s innovative VideoZone featurettes which would accompany all Full Moon releases as well as how the fans keep both Band and Full Moon motivated to continue making films well into the future.
Check out the conclusion of our interview with Band below, and make sure to check back here later this week for Part One of our video interview with indie horror actress Barbara Crampton.
