Felissa Rose has endeared herself to horror fans for nearly 40 years. The New York-born star was just 13 when she got her first role as a shy teen, turned killer in the now iconic Sleepaway Camp (1983). That role, as well as the film’s infamous ending (no spoilers), has stayed with her, launching a career in horror that has garnered nearly 120 roles on IMDb as well as recurring role as “Mangled Dick Expert” on Shudder’s The Last Drive In starring Joe Bob Briggs. Rose makes countless appearances at horror conventions throughout the country, and speaking from experience, there is no one more genuine and pleasant with guests. It was my pleasure to speak with her via telephone last week to discuss her career, current films, and the uncertainty of life in a true horror landscape.

Adam Green‘s Hatchet series was thought over, the trilogy completed in 2013. Last summer, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the series Green surprised fans with Victor Crowley, the 4th film in the franchise once again starring horror icon Kane Hodder as the titular monster and Parry Shen as the unlikely hero. The film was released on Blu-Ray/DVD and VOD this week and if you are a fan of this franchise, you will not be disappointed. Victor Crowley retains all the tenets of classic Hatchet; amazing practical effects, spectacular guts and gore kills, and a tongue in cheek sense of humor, with tons of in jokes and references for gorehounds and horror geeks to scream about.
Back in the Summer, rumors began swirling that Adam Green had secretly made a fourth Hatchet film, named Victor Crowley which was having surprise screenings. Now as the film is set to debut on February 6th on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital, and VOD, the full trailer is out! Watch it here below.
Back in 2006 director Adam Green made an homage to ’80s slasher horror with Hatchet, in the process creating a new unstoppable monster, Victor Crowley. A combination of Jason Voorhees and Cropsey from The Burning (1981), Crowley is a 7-foot giant with a noticeable scar on his face from the titular weapon who lives and hunts the bayous of New Orleans. He is played by the legendary Kane Hodder, famous for playing Jason in Friday the 13th Parts 7 – 10. Hodder returned to the swamp for Hatchet II (2010) and Hatchet III (2013) and last week in Los Angeles, Green held a surprise screening for the latest installment in the Hatchet franchise, titled Victor Crowley.

If you’re a connoisseur of ’80s horror movies, odds are you’re familiar with Robert Hiltzik‘s 1983 cult classic, Sleepaway Camp. A summer camp slasher in the vein of Friday the 13th and The Burning, Sleepaway Camp is an ode to short shorts and side ponytails – and the wholesale slaughter of horny kids and camp counselors with Long Island accents, of course.
After a horrific boating accident killed her family, Angela Baker (Felissa Rose) is sent to live with her eccentric creepy, possibly schizophrenic Aunt Martha (Desiree Gould) and her cousin Ricky (Jonathan Tiersten). Good ol’ Aunt Martha sends the little kiddies off to Camp Arawak for the summer to enjoy the great outdoors.
