The horror-comedy Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer just wrapped up a three-city limited release in preparation for the DVD from Anchor Bay which hits shelves October 7th, 2008. The film, directed by Jon Knautz from a screenplay he co-wrote with John Ainsley, stars Trevor Matthews (who also has story and producer credits on the flick) as a plumber who must battle horrific beasties unwittingly unleashed by Professor Crowley (Robert Englund) upon a junior college. At Comic-Con this year, we had the opportunity to sit down with Matthews and Knautz (as well as the non-talkative composer Ryan Shore and producer Patrick White) and ask them about their wild and crazy film.

Classic-Horror: Who wants to tell me a little bit about what Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer is about?

Trevor Matthews: I don't think anyone wants to tell you anything about that.

Just as he did in 2007, Robert Englund sojourned to San Diego Comic-Con this year to talk about his latest projects, including Zombie Strippers and Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer. Zombie Strippers, a humorous and irreverent callback to 1970s exploitation cinema, will be released on DVD by Sony on October 28th. Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, a horror-comedy about a plumber who fights monsters, will be out in a limited theatrical release starting this month.

Classic-Horror had the opportunity to spend a few minutes speaking with this legendary horror icon about his latest forays into the genre. In addition to discussing his current projects, Englund was also more than happy to offer his insight on current filmmaking practices, his legacy as a horror icon and, of course, his wealth of experience in the genre.(read more...)
