The Trailer Video for Fright Dome’s The Collector Attraction with Danielle Harris and Sid Haig Is Here!With Las Vegas, Nevada’s Fright Dome haunt opening at Circus Circus on October 3rd, a trailer video for its The Collector attraction featuring horror icons Danielle Harris and Sid Haig has surfaced, and we’ve got it.

Opening with a star-studded red carpet (The Collector and The Collection director Marcus Dunstan will be in attendance, as will Fright Dome owner Jason Egan and horror veteran Haig, in addition to Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2 actress Allison Kyler and Lucky McKee’s The Woman actress Carlee Baker, with more to be announced), you can expect in-depth coverage from the kick-off, as we’ll be there to provide it, just as we will a review of the attraction itself.

Check out the teaser video below, in which Harris is stalked by a masked maniac who doesn’t happen to hail from Haddonfield.

From the Press Release
For the first time in its 11-year history, Fright Dome at Circus Circus Las Vegas teamed up with horror industry legends to create one of the most chilling trailer videos of all time, starring “Scream Queen” Danielle Harris and famed actor Sid Haig.

Filmed at one of the most haunted venues in the nation, Linda Vista Community Hospital, the video features Harris as she is stalked by the nightmare-evoking horror villain from Fortress Features movies THE COLLECTOR and THE COLLECTION. Located in west Los Angeles, Linda Vista has become a Hollywood hotspot location for filming. The labyrinth of hallways, abandoned operating rooms, psych holding cells and more have been home to such movies as OUTBREAK, DAY OF THE DEAD 2, INSIDIOUS, CHILDREN OF THE CORN and many more.

“The collaboration with Fortress Features to use the story behind their horror movies THE COLLECTOR and THE COLLECTION will truly take Fright Dome to the next level this year,” said Egan. “When we sat down to brainstorm the trailer, I couldn’t think of more talented actors to reach out to than longtime friends Danielle and Sid. The overall premise behind the video is every horror fan’s worst nightmare: being singled out and hunted by a devious villain. It will give Fright Dome fans a first-hand look at what this year’s isolation-style house has waiting for them.”

Fright Dome is increasing the number of haunted houses within the sweeping 250,000-square-foot haunted theme park attraction from five stand-alone mazes to six to celebrate its 11th anniversary. The sixth house, an isolation-style haunted house and the premise for the video, appropriately named “Hotel Argento,” will take only upgraded fast pass guests into the depths of the Collector’s lair. Separated from friends and forced to enter alone, guests will forge their way through traps and snares, the Collector’s demented assortment of barely coherent victims and museum-esque displays of lifeless prey, all while being hunted themselves, as portrayed by Harris in the video. Will they make it out… or will they become the next victim added to his meticulous collection?

Danielle Harris, famed “Scream Queen” from HALLOWEEN IV and HALLOWEEN V, visits Fright Dome on an annual basis to meet and greet with fans and sign autographs. Harris is one of the few actresses to have made a successful transition from child star to one of the most recognizable and in demand female stars in the horror film industry. Recognized widely for her reoccurring roles in the HALLOWEEN horror franchise, she returned to the delight of fans around the world to star in Dimension Films’ Rob Zombie-directed HALLOWEEN and HALLOWEEN 2. In 2010 she starred in HATCHET II with horror greats Kane Hodder and Tony Todd. Other memorable performances include roles in DON’T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER’S DEAD, FREE WILLY, CITY SLICKERS, MARKED FOR DEATH and many more.

The Trailer Video for Fright Dome’s The Collector Attraction with Danielle Harris and Sid Haig is Here!Tall, bald and almost always bearded, Sid Haig has provided hulking menace to many a horror fan in his more than 50-year career. In 2000 he starred in Rob Zombie’s debut film, HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES, as the fun-loving but deadly Captain Spaulding. This role brought a whole new round of fans to Haig’s acting career and earned him an award for Best Supporting Actor in the 13th Annual Fangoria Chainsaw Awards as well as an induction into the Horror Hall of Fame. Captain Spaulding has since become an icon for the new horror genre. He has recently enjoyed success as Captain Spaulding once again in the follow-up to HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES, entitled THE DEVIL’S REJECTS. For this film Haig received the award for Best Actor in the 15th Annual Fangoria Chainsaw Awards.

Beginning Thursday, October 3, Fright Dome takes over The Adventuredome at Circus Circus with six haunted houses, three extreme scare zones, thrill rides and attractions, live shows and much more. Fright Dome is open from 7 p.m. to 12 midnight October 3-31 on select nights. General admission tickets start at $32.95, and fast pass tickets are available for an additional $15 to $20, which allows express line entry for all six haunted houses.

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.
