Sybil Danning on Double Page Spread

So…I haven’t won that Pulitzer Prize for writing…and I don’t have a happy husband and a house full of tumbling, peanut butter stained kids. But…I have been “sandwiched” by Sybil Danning and Wendi Freeman on a popular podcast. Thankfully, in my world, that makes me the winner.

Danning, of course, is the action goddess who appeared in such cult classics as Battle Beyond the Stars, Howling II, Chained Heat and Hercules. Freeman, meanwhile, is the friendly presence behind Double Page Spread, an entertaining look at the comic book industry.

On a recent episode of DPS, I was lucky enough to join Wendi as she and Sybil chatted about fitness, the power of positivity, Danning’s favorite films and her most recent project – Ruger, a comic based upon L.A. Bounty, one of the movies that established Danning as the female heir to Clint Eastwood and that ilk.

Meet Sybil Danning!

Sybil Danning

Sometimes you’re Danning if you do. Other times, you’re Danning if you don’t. But on Saturday, March 17th, lucky Chicagoans will actually get to meet exploitation icon Sybil Danning at the Sci Fi Spectacular. Danning will be in attendance to talk about Battle Beyond the Stars, the cult classic Roger Corman production that she co-starred in, which is being shown at the event.

Other stratospheric guests for this annual festival include Victoria Price and Noah Hathaway (The Neverending Story, Battlestar Galactica). Held at the historic Davis Theater in the beautiful Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago, more information on this one-of-a-kind movie extravaganza is available at https://www.facebook.com/events/1218482144950205/.

Spacesuits, naturally, are optional. I hope to see you there!

Bad CGI Friday’s: Nightmares and Dreamscapes (2006)

Published November 28, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

If there is anything more shocking than a half naked John Boy in the Autopsy Room 4 entry of Stephen King’s Nightmares and Dreamscapes, it has to be the sight of an obviously computer generated snake as it strikes out at its prey in that very same episode.

But you have to admit that, as a man in his late 50s (when the show was filmed), actor Richard Thomas (Battle Beyond the Stars and The Waltons, as referenced above) is looking pretty good. Spending the majority of the episode with flanks (etc..) bared on an autopsy table, Thomas fills his role, a war wounded businessman put in a death resembling coma by above said snake, with hard won regret and humor.

Greta romances, Thomas sleeps!

Greta romances, Thomas sleeps!

Thus, Thomas’ efforts and the elegant presence of Greta Scacchi (as a medical official gone giddy with love) help make this one of the better (if comically drawn out) entries in this occasionally lackluster TNT mini-series from 2006. And, of course, there is always that snake!
