Brendon Connelly is Bleeding Cool.
As our DEAD HOOKER made its incredible journey from trunk to UK, we had the esteemed pleasure of chatting with Brendon of the wicked awesome site, Bleeding Cool. He actually rang us up, which was very cool and with such vastly different time zones, always an adventure.
The UK has been absolutely astounding with their support of us and our DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK. I must admit on more than one occasion we've uttered, "that's it, I'm moving to the UK." And it's true. The UK holds a very special place in our deranged little hearts. I'm so happy that our film first debuted there at the Ghouls On Film Festival AND it was first released there.
Now, it's come home to Canada and the USA. Today, DHIAT is available everywhere on VOD courtesy of the wonderful people at IFC Midnight. Seriously. Go watch it. And then watch it again. And then leave it going as you fall asleep tonight.
In celebration of DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK DAY comes this wicked awesome interview with Brendon of Bleeding Cool.
We talk about ALL the good stuff....
Love. Horror. Dead Hookers. American Mary. CJ Wallis. Our future projects. Our short films. Acting. God. Robert Rodriguez. Carlos Gallardo. Jurassic Park. Cross Roads. Setting men on fire.
Yup, all that and much more.
Get comfy and curl up with the FULL INTERVIEW right here.
And do yourselves a favor and check out the collective awesome that is Bleeding Cool.
Here's a word from their site creator and a little on how you can be part of the rad storm...
"Welcome to BleedingCool.com – the new blogsite written by Rich Johnston and friends.
This site will not so much pull back the curtains of the comic book industry, as give you a series of upskirt shots. But as well as news, rumours and gossip, there will be reviews, previews, features, interviews, videos, columns and a place for comic book readers to call their own. Whatever your tastes from mini comics by Sean Appozardi to blockbuster events by Geoff Johns, from the Guardianista middle class commentary of Posy Simmonds to the righteous right hook of Chuck Dixon, from Rob Liefeld’s cankles to Robert Crumb’s thighs, from Frank Quitely’s OctoMumLips to Frank Cho’s shapely hips, you’re welcome here.
More than that, I need you. I can’t be everywhere all the time. Hell, I’m stuck in the outskirts of London for a start. But, en masse, you can be. Keep your eyes and ears open. Point out any loose threads and I’ll start pulling.
Because everyone in comics knows something, whether found in the dark online, corners, overheard in a comic shop, shared over drinks at a comic convention or found in the dumpsters at 1700 Broadway, that other comic readers would love to know. And here is where you can share it all. Those that do will get points, kudos, and special credentials on the forum. And the knowledge of a job well done.
So please, be my Little Bleeders. Register for the forum, bookmark the site, start making a difference. This is our medium, let’s have some fun with it.
After all, isn’t that what comics are for?
They even did an interview with Axel Braun. If you don't know who that is, you don't like super heroes as much as I do...
