Episode 102 - February 10
In this episode of Dread Central Live, special effects guru Vincent Guastini joined hosts, Staci Layne Wilson and Vanessa Gomez as well as social media moderator "Jill Kill" to discuss his extremely gooey approach to Cabin Fever: Patient Zero. Vin also brought along some truly ghastly props that sure to both sicken and delight the show's audience.
In "Jill Kill"'s "Disasterpieces" segment, Troll 2, Best Worst Movie and Ratman were discussed
Vanessa "Gore Whore" Gomez reported on horror movie news such as the new "Where the Devil Hides" poster and that Isabelle Fuhrman ("Orphan", "The Hunger Games") joined the cast of Stephen King's Cell movie adaptation. Vanessa also reminded the audience that the new Godzilla trailer will be released just in time for Valentine's Day. Unfortunately, there won't be a new Resident Evil movie starring Milla Jovovich, this year. Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton videoed in via Skype to discuss this development with the hosts, Vanessa, Staci and Jill.
Before this week's guest, special effects artist Vincent Guastini, was introduced, a clip reel of Vincent's special effects works were shown.
Staci Layne Wilson welcomed special effects artist Vincent Guastini to Dread Central Live. Vincent had worked on movies such as Child's Play 3, The Langoliers and Dogma. Vincent credited John Carpenter "The Thing" as the movie that changed his life and inspired him to start his own special effects company at the age of 22. Staci led the conversation about what specifically in that 1982 movie that so influenced Vincent. Other questions asked include a discussion of Vincent's works in "Coldwater" (by Dave Parker) and "The Devil's Carnival" (by Darren Bousman). The hosts also were interested in Vincent's process of working with other colleagues who had their own strong visions, such as Patrick Tatopoulos of "I, Frakenstein".
Hosts Staci and Vanessa continued the conversation about Vincent's special effects and makeup work on "Cabin Fever: Patient Zero" which is coming out soon. They discuss whether CGI effects enhanced or hinder practical makeups. Vincent also got to talk about "The Taking", a Bryan Singer film, as well as "V/H/S 3". At the end, Staci and Vanessa learned a little more about Vincent's directorial debut.
