David J. Stieve

David J. Stieve wrote the script for this summer's DVD hit "Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon." We caught up with him recently to find out what he's up to now, the possibility of a sequel and what ideas he's been kicking around.

Those are the types of subtle inside jokes for true horror fans that we wanted to sprinkle throughout.

I remember thinking that even though I loved the film, that it must have sounded ridiculous on paper. Was it hard to get people to see the vision you had in your head? The concept is definitely pretty out there.

I would’ve needed some serious re-calibration of my funometer if he wasn’t funny to anyone else but me.

Behind the Mask seems to have gotten a tremendous response from horror fans since it's DVD release in June. How does it feel that they've loved it so much?

Lloyd Kaufman

By far, this interview with TROMA founder Lloyd Kaufman is one of my favorite pieces from the old site.

Troma seems to be very visible lately, I was just wondering how you guys are doing?

Well we're going into our 30th anniversary, but it's still very very hard to get our wonderful movies to the public, because a lot of the big...Well, Blockbuster for some reason has a lot of crap in there but they don't have Troma.

Invasion (REVIEW)

I can't say that I had any interest in checking out "Invasion" before the release. In fact, the only reason I went to see it today is because I couldn't sucker any of the other staff writers into "taking one for the team." The joke's on them though, because despite winning the award for the most pointless remake ever, "Invasion" still manages to be a nice little summer treat.

Ed Sanchez

Ya, I mean that was the plan. They were expecting a different film. They were expecting something a little more Hostel.

You were away from the scene from quite some time between "The Blair Witch Project" and "Altered," can you tell us what you were up too for all that time?
