Hershel from The Walking Dead is coming to Crypticon Kansas City; and Panic Fest returns to Screenland Armour

Posted By on Tue, Jan 7, 2014 at 12:14 PM

Hershel Greene lost his head in  the midseason finale of The Walking Dead - and the AMC hit lost its moral compass. But Scott Wilson, the man who made Hershel so likable, is coming to Kansas City for this year's Crypticon horror convention August 15-17.

This year's Crypticon will take place at the Ramada Kansas City Hotel and Convention Center (1601 North Universal Avenue). Wilson headlines a guest list that includes Eric Roberts, Kane Hodder (Jason Vorhees of Friday the 13th), C. Thomas Howell and more. 

Tickets are available through Crypticon's website

And for some more immediate frights, our friends at the Screenland Armour are throwing another Panic Fest January 31 through February 2.

The film list includes House of Forbidden Secrets, Here Comes the Devil, Space Balls, Serenity, Deep Red, Pinup Dolls on Ice (and a Q&A with the director) and more. For ticket information, click here

New film to document storied punk club the Outhouse

Posted By on Fri, Jul 29, 2011 at 8:40 AM


Brad Norman, former bassist for the Sex Offenders, recently launched a website and Facebook page for a new project of his. Entitled The Outhouse: The Film 1985 - 1998, the forthcoming documentary looks to interview "the bands, the people who attended the shows, the neighbors, the cops, all involved" with the punk venue in a cornfield outside of Lawrence (which is now a BYOB strip club). If you're one of those people, you can find out how to submit fliers or footage via the movie's website or Facebook page.

Rikk Wolf on how Incognito Cinema Warriors XP makes terrible movies better

Posted By on Wed, Mar 16, 2011 at 1:57 PM


In the past three years, Incognito Cinema Warriors XP has gone from a fan film to a series with a respectable fanbase of its own. The film-mockery series was started when Rikk Wolf and a couple of friends decided that their comments were funnier than the average film riffs, and they put together a movie that was part original concept (man trapped in a movie theater surrounded by rampaging zombies), as well as part homage (the man and robots making-fun-of-movies concept from Mystery Science Theater 3000, aka MST3K).

Wolf and the rest of the crew at AgonyWolf Media are in the midst of production on the next six episodes of Incognito Cinema Warriors XP, but he was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to speak with us by phone from the studios in Plattsburg, Missouri.

Lemmy: 49% Motherfucker, 51% Son of a Bitch makes cutoffs metal

Posted By on Thu, Feb 17, 2011 at 3:15 PM

This is fucking metal.
  • This is fucking metal.

Motorhead performs tonight at the Midland with Clutch and Valient Thorr.

Lemmy: 49% Motherfucker, 51 % Son of a Bitch, the new documentary on the legendary Motorhead frontman, has a lot of names telling a lot of stories that back up the "Ace of Spades" singer's hardcore reputation. Drugs, women, rock and roll, and life divided among the tour bus, the stage, and a bar on the Sunset Strip. Yet the most important is the story about Lemmy's cutoffs.

"I mean, these were like Daisy Duke's," Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian says

at one point, recounting a roasting hot day in L.A. when Lemmy was bent

over an arcade machine, rear covered only by a scrap of denim.

If you didn't make the requisite holiday pilgrimage to the movie theaters this weekend, shame on you. (If you did, and went to see Little Fockers, even more shame is directed your way.) However: those of you who went to see True Grit couldn't have missed the haunting tune that accompanied the movie's closing credits. Turns out that it's none other than Iris DeMent, the singer and songwriter that passed many years in Kansas City as a local folk hero.
