Fresh from TBUFF, I noticed a surge in female filmmakers, and the unique perspective they bring to the art of cinema. Perhaps it was coincidence or fate that FanBolt was invited to interview up-and-coming director Megan Freels Johnston. Her film The Ice Cream Truck, which looks at a horror hidden within the nightmare known as suburban life, captures the look and feel of some classic John Carpenter films.

The director of Welcome to the Men's Group and the only man to ever accurately portray Dr. Doom on screen, Joseph Culp, sat down to discuss the dissection of the male ego and how it affects the species in these turbulent times.

Welcome to the Men's Group is currently available on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon!

Synopsis:

Joseph Culp and Scott Ben-Yashar bring you a film that explores what happens in a men’s group when people are no longer willing to hide behind social conventions. Welcome to the Men’s Group is a comedy-drama that explores real-life issues that affect everyone (not just men). The modern male is under pressure like never before, and WTTMG explores how men deal, or don’t deal, with these issues, and how it effects their lives and families.

Homeland and The Magicians regular Mackenzie Astin called into the Syxx Sense Studios to discus the indie film Welcome to the Men's Group. We had previously talked to Astin's co-star David Clennon who took us on a deep dive into the male psyche via the new film, and their outlooks on men going forward in this new age are somewhat different.

Recently I spoke to director Jenni Gold about her documentary CinemAbility which shed light on the lack of representation for handicapped actors in Hollywood. It was an eye opening experience into the atmosphere the industry has created that not only misrepresents disabilities on screen, but the culture it creates which keeps handicapped actors from pursuing a career. One of those actors interview was Kevin Sorbo, who had a role in Soul Surfer, a the tale of a surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack (Bethany Hamilton).

Mr. Sorbo and I spoke about the movie industry and quite a bit about politics.

CinemAbility is available on iTunes, GooglePlay, and Amazon.

Actor David Clennon sat down to speak with us about an interesting film called Welcome to the Men's Group. Clennon has seen his fair share of things as an actor, from Peter Sellers's last great role, to an intergalactic shape-shifting alien, but what about complexity of a man's psyche when he sequestered away with other men?

Welcome to the Men's Group is a bit of an affirmation for men who find themselves stuck between the various social movements of the present, and the expectations set by traditional American values. The film, directed by Man Men's Joseph Culp, was quite an unexpected viewing venture for yours truly. When most cinematic representations of men imagine us as either dolts or heroes, it is easy to forget that many of us harbor a lot of hidden emotions, fears, desires, dreams, and pain. This film explores how those things affect males from various walks of life.

The character of Dr. Paul Bearer is a legend in the world of horror hosts. Like Elvira and many others who graced televisions both locally and nationally, the good doctor would present us young horror fans with a "horrible old movie" every Saturday. Those of us who grew up in Florida in the '80s and early '90s, Bearer was a weekly staple, his show came on right after the Saturday morning cartoons came to an end.

Each week the old ghoul would enter through the creaky door of the Tenement Castle, introduce us to a special monstrous guest, and then roll a truly terrible film that would make the crew of the Satellite of Love blush. Now, decades later, the master of the macabre continues to delight horror fans young and old with his distinct style that includes devilishly bad puns and the iconic phrase "I'll be lurking for you."

With the introduction to Dr. Paul out of the way, FanBolt was on hand during the premiere of his short film Hi Noon, Goodbye Dr. Paul. The inaugural outing of this project took place at the historic and allegedly haunted Tampa Theatre. For almost 100 years the theatre has been an icon to the downtown district, and the gallery below will show you why preservation efforts have been made to make sure it stays around for a long time. During our visit before the premiere, we took a few photos of the magnificent gem.

Hi Noon, Goodbye Dr. Paul takes us back to the early part of Florida's history when settlers first started to tame the tropical land. We learn how Paul Bearer got his signature scar, and just how good of a medical doctor he really is. The film, directed by Michelle Gandhi, also features a guest appearance by Eddie Munster himself, Butch Patrick.

The film itself is available to view below, along with an introduction and post-credits Q&A we filmed while in attendance. Enjoy!

FanBolt sat down for an exclusive interview with Killer Klowns composer John Massari. What did the maestro think about the Killer Klowns scare zone at Halloween Horror Nights? How did it feel to hear his score playing at one of the most popular Halloween attractions in America? Find out at FanBolt.com!

FanBolt visited the NBC production of the second season of 'Midnight, Texas.' While there, we got to see the sets and interview the cast.

The series stars François Arnaud ("The Borgias") as Manfred, a charming, powerful psychic who can communicate with spirits and finds safety in Midnight surrounding himself with both human and supernatural allies. Midnight is also home to Bobo, proprietor of the town's local pawn shop (Dylan Bruce, "Orphan Black"); Fiji, a witch who owns the local wiccan shop (Parisa Fitz-Henley, "Luke Cage"); Olivia, a mysterious assassin with a weapon for every occasion (Arielle Kebbel, "Ballers"); Joe, an angel who knows all of Midnight's secrets, having been around for millennia (Jason Lewis, "Sex and the City"); Lemuel, a wise vampire with a long history in Midnight (Peter Mensah, "True Blood"); and others.

Kai (Nestor Carbonell) is a magnetic, holistic energy healer and Patience (Jaime Ray Newman) is his savvy and beautiful wife. Drawn to Midnight’s unique energy, they have opened Crystal Desert, a hotel and New Age healing center. Though Kai impresses the Midnighters with his power, some are skeptical of his motives and wonders if he is actually a con man. Patience uses her charm to ingratiate herself to Midnight and takes an immediate liking to Manfred (François Arnaud).

Walker (Josh Kelly) is a handsome, openly gay demon hunter, much like Joe Strong, the famed angel he admires. When Walker discovers Joe in Midnight, the two develop a bond fighting demons. Driven by revenge and an undeniably intense attraction to one another, Walker will get Joe into more trouble than either expect.

Inclusion and diversity are huge talking points in Hollywood. During set visits or interviews, showrunners and directors always mention that they are looking at more ways to diversify the teams in front of and behind the camera. Yet, there's a group that always seems to be missing from these discussions. Those with disabilities are a minority that are severely lacking from the silver and small screen.

Even I do not feel that represented in the industry, being paritally deaf. Sometimes that disability is played off for laughs, but what about others out there who look to the entertainment medium for a source of inspiration? Where are their heroes? Well, we have an exclusive interview with an amazing woman who is looking to solve that!

We got to talk to director Jenni Gold about this issue and her new documentary CinemAbility.
