THE LAST KNOCK: Greg Travis Interview

Greg Travis  The amazing Greg Travis has been called a “chameleon” of an actor, thanks to his natural born talent. Regardless of the genre, whether on stage or on screen, his presence has always been more than memorable: he’s your net correspondent of choice in Starship Troopers, the man you want to hang with in Showgirls,...

Digging Up Pet Sematary Two (Part 3) by Jonny Numb

A HORROR INITIATION The marketing campaign for Pet Sematary Two went for the jugular, and even the trailer, while hinting at a more rambunctious tone, erred more on the side of dead seriousness. Taken out of context, Gus’ parallel-universe-iconic line “No brain, no pain” delivers a chill akin to Judd’s (Fred Gwynne) “Sometimes dead is...

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Those We Lost 2017

THOSE WE LOST The saddest part about the start to a new year is during one’s head around to look back at Those We Lost. The actors, directors, writers, artists, musicians, and film crew members who brought us great horror films, books, art, and songs are to be celebrated, and THE LAST KNOCK does just...

Digging Up Pet Sematary Two (Part 2) by Jonny Numb

MARRED BY INDECISION There comes a point in digging up Pet Sematary Two where Outten, the producers, or Lambert (or all) steered the story in a direction that dropped the intriguing avenues it established, in favor of something more forthright in its outrageousness. And not in a good way. I recall having similar feelings when the...

Digging Up Pet Sematary Two (Part 1) by Jonny Numb

THE GROUND IS SOUR Like some abominable distortion of animal or man rising from the Micmac Burial Ground, Pet Sematary Two is a horror sequel that refuses to stay down. Is it great? Not at all. It’s reckless at best, and careless at worst. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a certain amount of potential...

THE LAST KNOCK presents: Best Horror 2017

Best Horror 2017 It’s our Best Horror 2017 list, but was 2017 a good year for horror? Billy and Jonny have different opinions on the topic, and you may be surprised about their “best of” lists. The year saw two big horror films that cleaned up their own blood at the box office: Jordan Peele’s...

Crash Reports: Ode to the Austin Film Festival by Paul J. Williams

The Adventures of a First-Timer at the Austin Film Festival When my phone rang one day this past September with an Austin, Texas area-code, I thought it was just another robo-call from “Jennifer” trying to sell me solar panels for my house, or “Tim” offering me a chance to consolidate my debt, but no, it...

Crash Reports: Suspiria at the Senator Theatre by Jonny Numb

The area around the Senator Theatre was bathed in a warm glow accentuated by drizzling rain on the evening of Thursday, November 9. Apt, I thought, for Suspiria – a film that opens and closes in a downpour-saturated landscape. The Senator is hard to miss – with a classical outdoor marquee (each letter of each...
