Mr Grimez Poet Warrior Meets Joe Wheeler

Posted by on Dec 8, 2014 in Featured, Interviews, Movies, Videos | 0 comments

Joe Wheeler is the mastermind behind the grindhouse classic Jengo Hooper.

It was great to meetup with the film director at Balham for the cast & crew screening.

For all the years I have known Joe, I have witness the development of his character Jengo.

Trust me he has come a long way and I’m sure that this film will eventually be a cult classic.

Be prepared to be plunged into a disturbed world of confusion, gore and insane Jengo antics.

If you like your horror films twisted and gritty to the max, then this is for you.

I would say it’s definitely hard to stomach as I feel it really does screw the mind.

So if you are expecting a haunted house type of film, then you will be disappointed.

To be honest this film is no way near suitable for mainstream.

But saying that still, it could become it’s own mainstream due to the content.

Snobby Hollywood Executives will frown on it.

Well hardcore lovers of horror will embrace it.

Jengo Hooper takes you on a rough edgy rollercoaster ride.

So you might need a sick bag.

The soundtrack is well put together with a variety of songs to keep the mood of the film going.

Speaking to Joe in Balham, I asked him what’s next for Jengo Hooper.

He told me and the cast crew that another film will be on it’s way.

As well as a possible animated series.

Jengo Hooper also makes it’s appearance at the RIP Horror Film Festival in Los Angeles California in November 2014.

You can keep up to date with Joe Wheeler & his projects on Facebook.

Rob Zombie – Announce Release Of Ever Concert Film Plus Full European Tour Dates

Posted by on Mar 17, 2014 in Movies, News, Tours | 0 comments

Rob Zombie’s first concert film, The Zombie Horror Picture Show, will be released May 19 by Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/Universal Music. The feature-length concert film, recorded live over two sizzling nights in Texas, captures Zombie’s elaborate, multi-media production of mind-blowing SFX, animatronic robots, pyrotechnics, oversized LED screens and state-of-the-art light show combined with his powerhouse band featuring John 5, Piggy D and Ginger Fish.

The Zombie Horror Picture Show, available on Blu-ray, DVD and longform digital video, puts the viewer at the centre of the hot and nasty action for a blistering set of 16 Rob Zombie classics, including “Dragula,” “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Super Town,” “Living Dead Girl,” “More Human Than Human,” and the crushing cover of Grand Funk Railroad’s “We’re An American Band” from the seven-time Grammy® nominee’s U.S. Top 10 2013 album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor.

To support the release of The Zombie Horror Picture Show, Rob Zombie is set to tour Europe across June and July. The 2014 dates are Zombie’s first European dates since 2012. That year saw Zombie also dominate the touring world, blowing away audiences on the road with Megadeth, then with Marilyn Manson for the “Twins of Evil Tour”, where Zombie and his band of maniacs brought their hair-raising theatrics, insane guitar riffs and vicious beats all around the world. 2014’s European run is set to cement Rob Zombie’s reputation as one of the most exciting and essential live touring acts.

In 1997, after the breakup of his multi-platinum group White Zombie, Zombie went on to achieve even greater success as a solo artist with several more multi-platinum and gold albums including Hellbilly Deluxe, The Sinister Urge and Educated Horses.

As a rock icon and filmmaker with a unique vision, Rob Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of his music and films. Zombie has sold more than fifteen million albums worldwide, and is the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of six feature films with a worldwide gross totaling more than $100 million.

Highlights from the documentary, which also features clips of live performances, has already been shown on VH1 back in November, although at the time it was described as a ‘work in progress’.

“This is the first time in 20 years that we are actually inviting people into the process. This is not a fully thought out thing yet,” said singer Billie Joe Armstrong, “We were so used to presenting ourselves before, but this time we had nothing. It was back to that ‘prove it to me’ [attitude],”

The band, who will start touring again in March, will attend the screening in Aspen, Colorado, and will be answering questions that fans have posted on the X Games Facebook page.

¡Quatro! will be shown at the Wheeler Opera House on 26th January. For anyone unable to hotfoot it over to Colorado in time for the premiere, here are the highlights.
