(Left to Right) It's a bird.  It's a plane.  It's super Spears!  Brian shows off the aftermath from a run in with a zombie from Shadow: Dead Riot.  "What the hell am I doing here?"  Brian mutters as he wonders how he went from hanging out with Tony Todd to hanging out with this crowd.

Chiller Theatre Fall 2005

Light & Dark was once again at Chiller hawking
the latest Brain Damage titles.  This time G & S Effects
was helping promote the Terror Cards line of horror
trading cards as well.

Lost's Daniel Roebuck wasn't a Chiller guest
but was more than welcome when he stopped
by the table to say hello.  Brinke Stevens also
dropped by and snapped a picture of her holding
up her very own Terror Card.

Eddie Deezen (Grease) and Charlotte Stewart

Fangoria Weekend of Horrors 2005

This past Fangoria Weekend of Horrors was a blast.  This time around Light & Dark and G&S Effects had a couple of tables.  In addition to our own stuff, we were representing Brain Damage Films and Terror Cards.  We received many comments that we had the best booth at the show.  Brian, in particular got some nice comments from Blues Brother's director, John Landis, director Mick Garris (Riding the Bullet) and Makeup FX Artist Vincent Guastini (Requiem for a Dream).  Fever Dreams Productions's Shadow: Dead Riot received a lot of attention and went over well with audiences.

(Left to Right) Project Greenlight's Feast star Judah Friedlander had to be one of the coolest guys there.  We spent a good time hanging out in the bar the night before and then he stopped by to check out our table the next day.  Brian's head exploded for the umpteenth time when Judah said he would like to work with him and recommended him to John Gulager.  It was really cool meeting Clu Gulager (Feast & Return of the Living Dead) and son, John.  Turns out John is a videogame junky too.  While discussing videogames he revealed to me that he might be in line to direct a movie based on The Suffering videogame.  The day was rounded out with a couple of interviews with Showtime for the Masters of Horror promotion.

Who said it's all work and no play?  The next day we were like gods with all the attention were were receiving from the previous night's antics.  And after a night of drunken debauchery, Gerner and Spears took home the trophy.

DVD In My Pants did a nice little interview with Brian and I was lucky enough to get into the photo.  Check out the article.

Light & Dark Miscellaneous 2005 Appearances

(Left to Right) Mike Lane and Sal Sirchia hang out at Vinny Vella's club Cafe Med with Coalition cast members Antonio Mastrantonio, Eddie Malavarca, Director Joe Ariola, and Chuck Zito who seems pretty happy in the company of Kerri Taylor.


(Left to Right) Brian brought me along to the set of Kamal Ahmed's (Jerky Boys) horror movie Rapturious.  I was supposed to assist him with a makeup but instead Kamal put me in a pivotal scene as an orderly with the lead actor, Rob Opal.  I even got a line and played opposite Joe Bob Briggs and Basket Cases's Ken Van Hentenryck pictured below.
