Horror Month – June 2015
We spoke with horror legend Bill Moseley known for his role as Choptop Sawyer in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. He has had many other notable roles in horror including House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween (2007) with Rob Zombie and Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness.

This film from writer/director Marcel Walz is the follow-up (but not a direct sequel) to the 2007 film ‘Seed’; which followed Max Seed on a rampage of blood and gore.
Max Seed (played by Nick Principe in this film) is not in our opinion a modern day slasher icon such as Michael Myers (Halloween franchise), Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th Franchise) or Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise) but was clearly deemed ‘popular’ enough to spawn a blood-soaked sequel; although this time he’s not killing alone.
The story resolves around a group of four friends (Christine – Natalie Scheetz, Olivia – Christa Campbell, Claire – Annika Strauss and Barbara – Sarah Hayden) on their way home from a bachelorette party in Las Vegas.
