Genre favorite Bill Moseley is once again bringing his one-of-a-kind abilities to an upcoming horror film. Moseley stars in the movie Rogue River, which is due to hit DVD on June 5. Read on to hear from the man himself!

Moseley recently took the time to sit down with Dread Central and tell us all about Rogue River and some of his other intriguing upcoming projects as well.

Bill Moseley Talks About Rolling Down the Rogue River

Moseley remarked that working on Rogue River was especially fulfilling for him because of one of his co-stars. “I knew what I was getting into,” Moseley said.“It was the first time I’d ever worked with my girlfriend, Lucinda Jenney, who plays Lea. That was a lot of fun.

“I got the job and my manager, Judy Fox, said they haven’t yet cast Lea and she asked, ‘What about Lucinda?'” Moseley said. “Well, Lucinda has a lot more and better credits than I do, so I didn’t know if she’d be into it, but I ran it by her and at first she said, ‘No, that’s your world.’ But after reading the script she said she would do it.”

The month long shoot was an enjoyable one for Moseley. “It was great working with Jourdan McClure who directed the film,” Moseley said. “We actually shot on the Rogue River outside of Grant’s Pass, Oregon, in Jourdan’s family house. My dressing room was his boyhood bedroom. There was a strong family feeling to the film.”

As audiences will see upon viewing Rogue River the movie definitely contains some unique, disturbing imagery. “The script by Ryan Finnerty and Kevin Haskins was very good,” Moseley said. “Jourdan was a fun director and we collaborated to make the scenes even more intense and he was a lot of fun in doing that. Some of the scenes were improvised based on the characters created by Ryan and Kevin.

“In certain scenes we did a lot of improvising with encouragement from Jourdan,” Moseley said. “It was certainly fun doing that. I enjoyed working with Lucinda because, as a couple…I’ve lived with her for many years…I know how evil she is. And it’s surprising how quickly we get right into creepy.”

Focusing on one of the more prominent scenes of the film, Moseley said, “There was one scene where it’s literally a shotgun wedding. I’m about to take Mara (Michelle Page) in for the nuptials and there wasn’t really a catchphrase line to really move the scene along. I was trying to pick a line…I’ve had a few catchphrases in my day. As I was thinking about it, Michelle turned to me and said, ‘Let’s say…’Let’s get you fucked.’ I was like man, that’s major league. That is Michelle Page one-hundred percent and I was in such love and awe of her at that moment. I was like that’s what it’s about. When you’re doing any kind of collaborative project, there is that moment where either you, or the people you’re working with, find that moment of clarity. It is so exciting. My hat is off to Michelle for that magic moment.”

And although Moseley isn’t usually known for wearing tons of make-up in his roles, he was left especially exposed in much of Rogue River. “Not only was I without makeup, but I spent a lot of time walking around in these tidy whities,” Moseley said. “So it wasn’t just my face out there, it was pretty much all of me. And it was cold. We shot it in the dead of winter. But after awhile, walking around in my underpants became second nature.”

Additionally, Moseley has some new projects for fans to get excited about, like The Devil’s Carnival and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. “The Devil’s Carnival is kinda like son of Repo! (The Genetic Opera). For me I was very happy to get the part of The Magician,” Moseley said. “I had to audition. I had to sing, so god bless my voice teacher. I’ve been taking vocal lessons for 18 years. It’s great to work with (director) Darren Bousman again. I’ve worked with him on The Tortured, Repo! and now The Devil’s Carnival. I love Darren. He’s probably one of, if not my favorite director to work with. Anytime he’s doing something…and Terrance Zdunich. It’s fun to work with these guys. I always have a blast. They’re doing 37 cities in 45 days with The Devil’s Carnival, another kinda Repo! road show.”

Also, it appears like Moseley will be back to play The Magician again in another chapter of The Devil’s Carnival. “I was told they’ve already written episode two. So, instead of treating it like a feature film, they’re treating it more episodic. I was told they want The Magician to come back so I’m very excited about that.”

And next year, fans will get to see Moseley return to the franchise that launched it all for him. “I am in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, all 3Ds of me,” Moseley said. “In fact, I play Drayton Sawyer, taking over for the dearly departed Jim Siedow. We shot it last summer in Louisiana. It was very hot and humid, but the production was really a lot of fun. I saw a lot of my old pals. Gunnar Hansen is in it, and Marilyn Burns is in it. John Dugan, who played the original grandpa is back to reprise his role as grandpa. It was an awesome experience.” Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D is scheduled for release in January 2013.

And, as always, Moseley can be seen on the horror festival circuit, and loves to hear from the fans. Track him down at the event nearest you and give him some love!

KISS Meets Army of Darkness in New Comic Miniseries!

Published

on

Dynamite Entertainment just announced that they are planning to bring two of their bestselling brands together in “KISS/Army of Darkness #1”. The new comic book series will unite the rock band with none other than Ash for some Deadite ass kicking.

The series will be written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims and illustrated by Ruairi Coleman. And the debut issue of “KISS/Army of Darkness” features three art covers from Kyle Strahm, Goni Montes, and Ken Haeser.

You can find all three covers below along with quotes from the creative team. After looking through all of that make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are about this new hybrid comic series in the comments below or on social media!

With Ash vs. The Army of Darkness, Chris and I were given kind of carte blanche to do whatever we wanted to the world of AOD, and we went for broke,” Co-writer Chad Bowers says. “We introduced some new characters and concepts, and built a legacy for Ash’s comics adventures that I’m immensely proud of, but not in a million years could I have guessed we’d get to continue that momentum with the added bonus of tossing the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band into the mix! I’ve been in the tank for KISS since I was in middle school. I remember buying the KISS tribute album, KISS My Ass for the Lemonheads (they covered Plaster Caster), which lead to me picking up Greatest Hits, and so on. But when I found out there was a KISS comic with blood in it, I signed up for life! Of course, I adore the songs (literally listening to Do You Love Me right now), but I’m just as obsessed with the way KISS transcends the music to become something of a genre themselves. It’s something I think about a lot, honestly, so no surprise, it’s a big part of our story too!”

“When it comes to Army of Darkness, I guess you could say that Ash is a bit of a gambler, but he’s nobody’s fool,” Co-writer Chris Sims says. “And since our first story was set back at Alan Shepard High, we’re looking forward to showing him some things that you can’t learn in school. Okay, okay, I’ll stop with the deep-cut lyrics now, but for real — if you thought Deadites at Homecoming and the Supernatural Military-Adjacent Response Team were taking Ash in a new direction, just wait until you see how we team him up with the Starchild, Space Ace, the Demon, and the Catman. In the grand tradition of the film, we’re tearing up the entire space-time continuum and if you think you know how weird this is gonna get… well, you sure know somethin’!”

“Having done some work for Dynamite in the past, I’ve really been wanting to get my foot in the door here for a long time so I can play in the sandbox of the amazing licenses they have,” Artist Ruairi Coleman says. “Chief among those, and high up on my bucket list, is Army of Darkness: Hail to the king, baby! So, when I was offered the job of drawing the KISS/Army of Darkness crossover, I couldn’t believe my luck! The concept is totally bonkers, but in a way, that would make complete sense in the world of Army of Darkness. Thinking about it, I’m surprised it hasn’t been done already and I’m honored (and more than a little intimidated) to be the guy who draws it.”

“After a more than 40-year career, KISS continues to be one of rock’s most celebrated bands, while Army of Darkness continues to be a staple in the comic book industry. We’re both honored to have the opportunity to work so closely with Gene and Paul to bring their world-renowned alter-egos to comics alongside our very own Ashy Slashy,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “The raging guitar chords and pyrotechnic spectacle of their stage shows could have come straight from the pages of the Necronomicon, and this epic battle between The Demon and Deadites will appeal to the hellions in all of us!”

Issue #1 will be available on digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

The KISS/Army of Darkness miniseries event hits February 2018.

Synopsis:

KISS is on top of the world and rocking faces until the night disciples of The Destroyer show up and the band disappears. With the tour canceled, a young Ash misses one of the most important events of his life that will change his destiny. Now the Chosen One has to get back on the right path and join the KISS ARMY OF DARKNESS!

Jason Lives Director Pitched Follow-Up: Jason Vs Cheech and Chong

Published

on

One of my favorite entries in the Friday the 13th series is director ‘s Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. The mixture of old-school gothic horror and comedy is always a welcome treat around these parts.

But why wasn’t McLoughlin asked to write and direct the follow-up?

Actually, it turns out he was asked to follow up Jason Lives, McLoughlin recently told Mick Garris on the Post Mortem podcast.

But his pitch – Jason vs Cheech and Chong – didn’t go over so well…

“[Frank Mancuso Jr.] wanted me to do another film after we did Jason,” McLoughlin says. “And I said, ‘What are you thinking? I don’t know what it could be now.’ And he said, ‘Well, what do you think about Freddy (Krueger) and Jason?’ And I go, ‘But Freddy’s at New Line and the guys at Paramount have [Jason].’ And it’s like, ‘Well, we’re going to try and see if we can work something out.’ So, I started thinking about that, going, It doesn’t make sense. I mean he lives in one realm and — you know, I take this stuff very seriously, what realm a monster’s supposed to stay in. And he came back, he goes, ‘Eh, forget it, it’s not going to work anyway.’ And I said, ‘You know what? You guys own Cheech and Chong. What if we do Cheech and Chong-meets-Jason? They’re like camp counselors or something. It’s like, ‘Hey, man, I saw Jason out there.’ ‘No, man, that’s a myth.’ But he said, ‘You know what? No.’”

Too bad. While I don’t know how well a Cheech and Chong/Friday the 13th flick would go, with McLoughlin at the helm, the film would have at least been funny as hell.

Plus we already got these two knuckleheads in Part III.

Are you upset we never got Tom McLoughlin’s Jason vs Cheech and Chong? Make sure to let us know in the comments below or on social media!

You can buy Friday the 13th: Part VI – Jason Lives on Blu-ray HERE.
