A while back before he became a director, Tim Sullivan used to write a column in which he would candidly interview horror luminaries called Shock N Roll. It was always a favorite of mine, and now it’s making its triumphant return!
Icons of Fright has teamed up with writer/director Tim Sullivan to bring its readers a heavy dose of Shock N Roll. Exclusive to the site, Tim Sullivan’s Shock N Roll will continue the Icons of Fright tradition of conducting in-depth interviews with genre professionals.
Confirmed participants for the September launch include Masters of Horror Frank Darabont, Tom Holland, David Cronenberg, Dario Argento, and in an interview truly embodying the Shock N Roll moniker, a joint conversation reuniting Tobe Hooper with punk icon Billy Idol. (Hooper directed Idol’s “Dancing With Myself” video back in 1983).
Said Sullivan, “As a filmmaker who began his career as a journalist, I have always been torn between standing in the spotlight and shining that light on others. I deeply look forward to paying homage once again to those who inspire me.”
As part of Shock N Roll Sullivan will help Icons of Fright make horror history by recording and moderating “pirate” commentary tracks with many of the filmmakers featured, exclusive commentaries not found anywhere else, which will be offered as free audio downloads. First up is a cast and crew commentary for Tom Holland’s 80’s horror hit Fright Night, tying in with the film’s upcoming midnight screening on Friday, September 19th, at Los Angeles’ Nuart Cinema.
