I have to push the new horror releases post to tomorrow... However, in its place, we have something pretty cool. I'll let Brad explain...

A few days ago, I interviewed Kirk Bowman, the director of "Bloodsucking Babes From Burbank". Not only was this a great interview but it was also the first in-person interview for Dead Harvey.

We met at the famous Blue Room bar in Burbank and if you've seen, "Momento", starring Guy Pierce you'll recognize it. The bar is also far less famous for being located behind my old apartment. Thankfully, the Blue Room was in stumbling distance, enabling me to live to do the interview.

Bowman showed up on time and presented me with my own, "Bloodsucking Babes From Burbank" tee-shirt. This was the second piece of merchandising I've received from Bowman; the first being a blood red pen with the title of the movie inked on the outside.

There was a lot of be learned from Bowman, having previously taught acting classes for fifteen years. He's a veteran of eleven features and several shorts. Along with the pen, tee-shirt and copy of, "Bloodsucking Babes From Burbank", Bowman also sent me a copy of his latest comedy, "Curse of the Pink Panties", a very entertaining throwback to the glory days of eighties sex comedies.

Bowman is a rare breed in that he's void of ego and arrogance. He's about one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet and is constantly out there, getting off his ass and making movies. To this, Dead Harvey gives a strong salute.
