Interview: Gary Baxter (Actor/ Director/Writer & Composer) (March 2016)

I met Gary Baxter at the Camden Film Fair and he does conventions, too. He is an actor, director, writer and composer. He did the music to Serial Kaller (2016) and is an all-round nice guy. I got to Interview him, please enjoy our talk:
Tell me about yourself Gary Baxter? Hi John, as you know, I am Mr Gary S Baxter, I'm 39, nearly 40, a father to 3 wonderful kids, occasional guest liaison at various conventions up and down the UK and occasionally abroad, actor, screenwriter, director and composer. I've always had a love of movies, being exposed to many of the great horrors and other genre classics at an early age and taught myself to play keyboards at the age of 8. I've also been known to do a bit of singing...

Review: Ganger (2016) - Directed by Liam Banks (March 2016)

Things are about to get creepy inLiam Banks' Ganger (2016). This is a 4 minute short by director, Banks. It was shot in a day on a very low budget. Synopsis:"Hearing a strange noise, Helen heads to the attic, nothing could have prepared her for what she finds inside.". Starring Charlie Clarke, introducing George Miller.
Ganger features creepy green-lighting effects and sharp sound effects! It echoes some of his other eerie shorts like, The Final Girl. The creepy visuals give an unease-like feeling in claustrophobic hall-ways of the house in which it was shot. It features some nice creepy performances and displays family-like horror, but without a PG rating! The music was done by Edward Harvey - he also helps the tension. Nice and creepy, the tension is just like cutting thick air!
