The final Spotlight on Horror Legend Tom Holland, director of the classic movies ‘Fright Night’, ‘Child’s Play’ and ‘Thinner’.

During iamROGUE’s time well spent with Tom Holland, it was nice to see this incredibly talented filmmaker speak about what is next. Not one to wait it out, he recently shot a music video for Lisa McClowry, the song is “Born Twice” and the video itself is called “Vampire’s Dance”. It is a return to a genre which Tom is an important part of thanks to Fright Night.

He is also busy looking to make his mark on a new era, by creating horror shorts entitled Twisted Tales featuring a few genre favorites including Danielle Harris (the Halloween franchise) and A.J. Bowen (The Signal and House of the Devil). Holland will also be appearing in the highly anticipated Hatchet 2 alongside Ms. Harris.

Tom Holland and 'Fright Night' Remake

Thursday, 12 August 2010 00:00

Tom Holland's Fright Night set the standard for what a great horror film could be. The use of comedy and horror was equally successful as was the beautifully layered script. iamROGUE asked Mr. Holland about the current remake which stars Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Toni Collette and David Tennant, which is a surprisingly strong cast.

Mr. Holland agrees and talks about his thoughts regarding a remake of a film that meant so much to him.  Whether or not the remake ultimately works or whether it doesn't, we will always have the classed 1985 film which is arguably one of the greatest vampire movies ever made.

Horror Legend Tom Holland on Breaking In

Tuesday, 10 August 2010 19:01

It’s a bit hard to not be impressed by Tom Holland. The director of such classics as Fright Night, Child’s Play and Cloak & Dagger speaks his mind and has a very honest approach to not only directing, but when having a conversation as well.

When iamROGUE approached him about doing a Spotlight, it felt like an exciting choice, as there are very few directors in Hollywood that would speak directly about the business itself. We also talked about what he has been up to, which includes his plans to bring his work directly to his fans by using the internet.

Needless to say, speaking to Mr. Holland is always a pleasure. Keep an eye out for this talented man and the horror that he will bring!
