We write about conventions, meeting actors, movies, series, merchandise, getting autographs & photo ops and everything else related!
Last October Tristan and I travelled to Ghent to attend FACTS. It was just the two of us because Carola and Sigmund were not able to go. We thought that was a shame, but I just had to go…why? Well FACTS had some awesome guest and one of them was David Hasselhoff. Yeah that’s right The Hoff was coming to FACTS and I had to be there to meet him. I can’t imagine there are people reading this that haven’t heard of David Hasselhoff, but just to be sure if you don’t know who he is just read our special “In the Spotlight” about him. Hasselhoff starred in two of the shows I grew up with and loved: “Knight Rider” and “Baywatch”. Because attending conventions is an expensive hobby, we decided to go for one day (Saturday). I bought my photo op ticket in the week before and I saw that the photo shoot was pretty early in the morning. To get there on time, there was only one thing to do: we had to go on Friday and stay in a hotel near Ghent to get there in time. So we did. I actually recorded a little vlog in the hotel room, check it out below (it’s very short but hey I was tired and I had to save my energy)
Here's an overview of the movies we watches in November! What did you watch? Do you have any nice tips for us?
Yeah! We received a new BAM Box. We unboxed it and made a vlog for you again. And for the people who prefer reading: We'll discuss the contents of the BAM Box below! The theme of this month was Adult Cartoons.
As you all know we love to attend conventions. It’s just something about the whole package that is kind of addicting. You get to meet the actors that play in the series or movies you love and maybe grew up with. You get the chance to hear them talk about their work and their look at life. But it’s not just that; at a convention you get to meet a lot of other amazing people too, you can browse through the merchandise, attend workshops or preview some new and upcoming series or movies. Most of all it’s a lot of fun.We love to write about our own experiences, but we also want to give you some insights in what happens behind the scenes. Today we zoom in on what it’s like to organize a convention. To do this we asked the lovely people behind KLZ events to give us some insights and they instantly agreed to answer our questions. Here's what we learned from their answers.
As you might know, Sig and I went on holiday to Krakow in September. We knew we wanted to visit Auschwitz during our holiday. The Auschwitz concentration camp was a network of concentration and extermination camps built by Nazi Germany during the Second World War. About one week before our holiday, Netflix suggested a documentary to me. It was the documentary Auschwitz: The Nazis and the Final Solution. Since we had already plans to visit Auschwitz, we decided to watch the documentary in advance. And I'm glad we did.
Friday, November 4th. Weekend of Hell. Liv & I are at a Q&A. Which Q&A? The Freddy vs Jason panel! I re-watched the movie Freddy vs Jason recently. It's no secret that I'm a horror movie addict. And I definitely love Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th. So you can imagine that I was excited to see this Q&A! There were 3 actors in this Q&A: Ken Kirzinger, Brendan Fletcher, and Zack Ward. Need a bit of help relating them to the movie? Ken plays the role of Jason Voorhees. Brendan plays the role of Mark Davis (The guy who was in the psychiatric hospital). Zack Ward is his brother in the movie. Yes, the one who was in a bath full of blood! The Q&A was great. It was so much fun to hear movie about the movie. Zack Ward was incredibly funny. Sharing his story about how they shot the bath scene. It was awesome to see. He described how he walked around with the 'blood' attached to his arm (You can see him showing it in the picture). It was fun!
So last week we asked for your help in our vlog "Conmose Needs You". One of the reactions we got was from Rhee30, she asked for anything related to "The Walking Dead" and our thoughts about the story at the moment. We decided to do a video review of last week's epsiode (S07E05). We did not have the time to do a vlog together, so we made a little mix up of our thoughts. We hope you enjoy it and let us know what you think and what you would like us to do!
As you all know we went to Weekend of Hell. And they had an amazing guest list. I'm also happy to tell you we also met Sybil Danning. We wrote about her before. And now we will share our experience with you.
I'll refresh your memory. Sybil is an Austrian actress, best known for playing in many, many awesome movies during the 1970s and 1980s. In 1978 she moved to Hollywood to proceed her career. There, she got a role in "Battle Beyond the Stars". In 1983, Sybil appeared on the cover of Playboy Magazine and had a ten-page pictorial. She had an absence in acting from 1990 - 2002 (due to an accident). After 2002 she returned to acting again. She played the evil nazi villainess in "The Werewolf Women of the SS" (the mock trailer for Tarantino's Grindhouse). Besides that, she also played a nurse in Rob Zombie's "Halloween" and much more. (And you all know how much I love Rob Zombie movies!!)
Hi everyone! We've got an exciting post for you today! As you all know, we've been to Weekend of Hell a while ago. We already wrote a few posts about it. We also want to give you guys some more background on conventions and movies.
At conventions, we all love to buy merch and DVDs! There are some vendors we love in particular. For DVDs, that's the stand of Zeno Pictures. We decided to ask them if they would do an interview with us to tell us more about Zeno Pictures and the DVDs they sell. Gino van Hecke immediately agreed.
I'll start with our view on Zeno Pictures! Zeno Pictures buys, releases and distributes almost forgotten cult movies, cult hits and unique movies. Sig always knows where to find Zeno Pictures at a convention. Liv and I both love the movies as well. As you all might already know, I like lots of types of movies. I love some big Hollywood movies, but what I truly find interesting is discovering new movies. It's fun to find something different and extraordinary, something that can surprise me. And what I love about Zeno Pictures is that they have a lot of these movies in their collection.
This article is about movie taglines. These are the short texts you’ll find on movie posters, you know the ones that will get stuck in your memory. Usually when I read a tagline, for some reason I hear the voice of Don Lafontaine (the king of movie trailer voice overs). They can be funny, dramatic, weird or sometimes just very cool! So in this article we will bring another homage to the movie tagline. Better yet let's do a little Quiz? I’ll put down some taglines and maybe you can try to guess the movie…Let’s go! (Have you checked out Part 1 of our Movie Tagline Quiz?)
So we went to Weekend of Hell in Oberhausen again. And I bought lots of DVDs again. But Carola also got 1 DVD at the Zeno Pictures stand, Eat. I had heard of this film and the concept of the movie sounded kind of interesting to me but I never really paid much attention to it. But after coming back home from Weekend of Hell the first movie we wanted to watch was this one. And so we did…
The movie is about a woman called Novella McClure (played by Meggie Maddock). Novella also has a friend called Candice (played by Ali Francis). They like to go out to clubs together and make men buy them drinks. Novella is an actress but has a real hard time finding a job. She actually hasn’t gotten a role in 3 years now and she is running out of money. This also causes her to be kicked out of her apartment because she hasn’t paid the rent for months. Her landlady is pretty good to her but she is also kind of getting fed up with not being paid rent. Of course all of this takes its toll on Novella and she becomes very stressed. She starts biting her nails, but quickly it becomes more severe than that. She starts biting her finger and after she gets another reject from an acting job she freaks out and starts eating her arm. After Novella bit her own arm she passes out and is taken to the hospital. She gets to go home pretty quickly but she is on suicide watch and has to go to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist is actually a guy she met at the club and she really likes him. But Novella’s life keeps spiraling down and she starts eating more of her own body.
Today we have an awesome guest post for you! It's a con survival guide for you with a free checklist download!!

We need you! We started vlogging recently. and we've made a couple now. Mainly about our moment at Comic Cons. Describing the most funny moments but also letting you know what we did at a convention. Plus we have our regular unboxing of the BAM box of course! And we will keep on vlogging. Because of that, we need you! Let us know in the comment: What do you want us to vlog about? Anything movie, series or Comic Con related is fine! It can be a movie review, seeing us watch a movie or series. But you can also give us a challenge. We're up for anything ;)! This is your chance!
This week our series tip is Gilmore Girls! I'm writing this now because there will be a new miniseries of Gilmore Girls soon! Exciting isn't it? It's called 'Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life'. There will be 4 episodes of 90 minutes. 25 November you can find these episodes on Netflix!
So I decided this was a good moment to discus Gilmore Girls. Tell me in comments, how many of you have sen Gilmore Girls?
I have watched it, but I didn't watch every episode. It was still in a time when I only watched things on TV. And I didn't always have the time to watch. So occasionally, I watched some episodes of Gilmore Girls. Now I've started to watch the seasons completely on Netflix!
Okay, now over to the plot! The series follows a mother (Lorelei Gilmore) and her teenage daughter (Rory). The show is completely about both of them and their relationship. General themes are love, work, education and social class.
We went to Weekend of Hell! Yeah! And we loved it SO much. It was really really great. Today I'll tell you about meeting Lew Temple at Weekend of Hell!
Lew Temple is an American actor. I know Lew mainly for his roles in the Rob Zombie movies the Devil's Rejects (= My favorite movie!), Halloween and 31. I also know him as Axel in the Walking Dead. You might also know him for Unstoppable, Lawless, Trailer Park of Terror, Domino and more! I was exited when I read that Lew would be attending Weekend of Hell. I had never met him before and I was happy to get the opportunity. I think Lew Temple is a great actor. He can really play any role. He began his acting career in the Alley Theatre in Houston, Texas. Then he got television and movie roles as well. He has also had a career in baseball. He has been the scout for the New York Mets (1986) and for the Astros, he was Assistant Director of Minor League Operations and Scouting.
A lot of other actors who also star in Rob Zombie's "31", joined him at Weekend of Hell: Meg Foster, Richard Brake, David Ury, Jeff Daniel Philips, Pancho Moler and Torsten Voges. That's quite a lot isn't it? I'm a big fan of the movies that Rob Zombie makes, so I was very glad to see them all at the convention.
The BAM box is a monthly mystery subscription box. It contains collectibles, limited edition items, exclusives and autographs. They guarantee at least 1 autographed item in every box. The theme of this month was 'Watching'! Check out our vlog to see what we thought of the box. I'll also tell you a bit more in this blog!
We spent 2 days on Weekend of Hell! Weekend of Hell is a convention in Oberhausen, Germany about anything related to horror! Our first day was amazing, but we had no clue day 2 would be even better! We'll show you some pictures and of course a vlog!
On day 2 we attended a lot of Q&A's again. For example the Q&A of:
- Sean Patrick Flanery
- Tom Atkins & Adrienne Barbeau
- 31 Panel
Be sure to check out our vlog to see:
- How many autographs Liv got from James Remar
- If I chickened out or did an autograph of Zack Ward and Lew Temple
- Why Liv got a hug from Meg Foster
- With whom we did an interview. We'll be writing about that soon as well...
Here's another overview of movies we watch! This time it's movies we watched in October! There will be a lot of horror movies this time (even more than usual) because we were preparing for Weekend of Hell. At Weekend of Hell we'll see a lot of actors that play in horror movies regularly, so we re watched some and also watched some new ones.
