This week the Grue-Crew sit down with a trio of talent from the Nevermore Film Festival in Durham, North Carolina on the weekend of February 23 through the 25, 2018. Thomas Mariani, Paul Cardullo, and Doc Rotten joined a small herd of the Grue-Crew for a special 40th Anniversary screening of The Manitou. Along the way, the Grue-Crew caught a weekend of terrific films, typical of the Nevermore Film Festival (look for a review of the festival in an upcoming episode). For this episode, Gruesome Magazine proudly presents an interview with Ben DeLoose, director of the fantastic sci-fi/horror film Escape the Dark. Ben dives into what it took to bring his micro-budget film to the big screen. The Grue-Crew also talk with Tiffany Arnold and Dan Kiely, two of the cast members of the stoner horror comedy Bong of the Living Dead, sharing their adventures of facing zombies while…feeling mellow. Good times!
