Sorry for the lack of ShartOut the last two weeks, didn't get to doing one two weeks ago because I was at Monster Mania and last week the Weather was just too nice not to spend time outside outside and as far away from the laptop! But any way the Sharts are back in full effect this weekend so without further adieu let's let them out . . .
01: Tim Capello, who's best know as the (Sexy) Saxophone Guy in "The Lost Boys" has made his much much anticipated debut on the Horror Con Circuit! His first stop was at this weekend's Mad Monster Party and my friend Garrett who's attending the show was nice enough to get an 8x10 signed for me!
02: Jeremy L. Morrison of the the podcast Acid Pop Cult put together a killer list two weeks ago to celebrate the Friday the 13th Holiday by sharing in his opinion the The Top 12 Boobies of "Friday the 13th" Series!

1994's "Brainscan" is a movie I've fell in love with from the first time I rented it from my local video store! Thanks to movie like "T2", "Pet Sematary 2" and his appearance in Aerosmith's "Livin' on the Edge" I already thought it's star Edward Furlong was just about the coolest mofo ever and the movie "Brainsan" only help cemented that belief"! The premise of a teenage loner who loved Horror Flicks, Violent Video Games, and Rock Music was just as easy to relate to when I was 12 as it is now at age 32! Of course for a 90s Horror movie mostly about technology it feels beyond dated now there's a lot about this movie still holds up really well in my opinion! For example the score to this flick is truly haunting, the time spent inside the video game world are clever & surreal, and also the main antagonist of the flick known only as "The Trickster" is a character who never outstayed his welcome and one you'd like to know more about if there was ever a follow up! And hopefully there will be a "Branscan 2" some day, but whomever makes it better include "Igor"!

If you were a diehard action movie fan growing up in the 80s there's no doubt that you went to the theaters to see or rented a film from The Cannon Group! In the decade of excess Cannon cornered the market for B-movies featuring over the top violence, rapid drug use, uninhibited sex, and teens trying to stop the Demolition of the Community Recreation Center through Dance! Below are my top five favorite films released via Cannon Pictures durring the 80s . . .

"American Exorcist" is an Independent Horror Film currently filming in Philadelphia from directors Tony Trov & Johnny Zito. The duo (who previously made the Sorority Horror flick "Alpha Girls") invited me to to be part of their new movie as an Actor in a key special effects scene that was being shot on Monday and since I was off for President's Day I was more than happy more than happy to abide! I arrived to the building where the movie was being shot a little before 10 AM and seeing a lot of familiar faces of friends I've knows for years as soon I walked in the door helped calmed my nerves! The part I would be playing in the movie was that of a Monster who's arm grabs the movie's star Falon Joslyn from under the floor as she's messing with an ouija board!
Around 11 AM I was sent to the Makeup and Special Effects Department to get my arm in Monster shape for before filming started! The crew working on me and the other five actors who would make up the scene included Steve Saturn (imdb), Lauren Palmer (imdb), Tanya Belfiiore (pinuplifestyle.com/), Jade Raquel Figueroa (facebook), Rei and Daniel Cusimano (linkedin.com) Below is a few shots of my arm in different stages of makeup, the idea was to make my arm appear as if it was in a office fire and damn did the crew nail it!
