Craig David Wallace – Writer/Director/Producer (Todd And The Book Of Pure Evil, Slasher, Motherly) - Craig won an Emmy for his directing, and has been nominated for Best Direction at the Gemini Awards, Canadian Comedy Awards, four times at the Canadian Screen Awards, Best Short Film at the Directors Guild Of Canada Awards, and the 2013 Bell Media Fellowship Award at the Banff Media Festival. He has also been nominated twice and won once at the Writers Guild Of Canada Awards.
Craig is painting The Kasey Ferguson Show red and spilling his guts about everything from just why in the blue hell Space would cancel the gut busting horror metal masterpiece that was Todd And The Book Of Pure Evil, directing the only original series Chiller ever produced in Slasher and his most recent fright film, Motherly to his favourite horror comedies, the irony of accepting an award for a show that’s already been cancelled and of course, will we ever see more of Todd, The Metal God?

Interview Pt 2 Intro: Zit Rhapsody (w/ Michael Olekshy)
Tony Gardner : Special effects slayer and maniacal make-up artist, Tony Gardner has worked on everything from The Addams Family (1991) and the Foo Fighters horror film, Studio 666 to The Blob and Zombieland. He has also been bringing Chucky to life in film and television since 2004.
Tony spills his guts on everything from getting his start under the legendary Rick Baker working on Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video and his iconic half corpse from The Return Of The Living Dead originating as Halloween decoration for his home to the on set hilarity behind the unforgettable moth gag in Hocus Pocus, how it’s sequel Hocus Pocus 2 FINALLY got made, doing battle with Liam Nesson’s nose on Darkman, his recent work on season 2 of the Chucky TV series (to which he also serves as an Executive Producer) and the nonstop sidesplitting shenanigans that was making up Bruce Campbell everyday for Army Of Darkness.

PLUS : Doug “ the sugar suckin’ cereal killer” Mcfly has eaten all of the Frankenberry that Kasey was saving for Halloween. However, Kasey gets the last laugh when Douglas awakes from a sugar coma in a zombie-like stupor with the Franken-shits. Siri’s demonic cousin, Miri reminds Kasey that his love life is colder than an Alaskan funeral and the two argue the merits of Kerr’s Molasses Kisses as a Halloween staple.
The Short List : Kasey loves his Mom to death but that doesn’t stop him from sulking when she asks him to watch her cat, Cuddles while she goes to a Halloween Party. It wouldn’t be so bad if she didn’t take all the fun out of things by leaving him a list of instructions for watching said cat including (but not limited to) : no using it to raise the dead, enslave mankind or bring about the apocalypse, no allowing it to drink milk from the skulls of your enemies, no terrorizing it with ventriloquist dummies named Slappy, Al Jolson’s grave is not a litter box, no allowing it to battle that cat from Sabrina in a fight to the death, and absolutely no asking it “who you gonna call?” and pretending the cat’s meow means “Ghostbusters”.

The motley crew attempts to answer burning questions such as, does Doug look like Tom Selleck? Vaurnet or Raybans? To Swatch or not to Swatch? Is Doug’s date with Ms. Pac Man?

He’ll dole out some stupendous Seventies facts from the average price of everything from a loaf of bread to a gallon of gas and Kasey’s Sleestak looking roommate, Doug “I have the eyes of Mr. Furley and the body of Fat Albert” Mcfly drinks Pop Rocks and a Coke while wearing a leisure suit.

Kingston Ribfest And Craft Beer Show : Kasey gets snake-faced at his hometown’s celebration of suds and talks tipsy juice with Broadhead Brewing, Collective Arts, Bangarang and festival organizer, Guy Exley. For some reason, Kasey thought it would be a great idea to challenge several brewers to a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors (yes, on the radio) and goes on a drunken, godlike winning streak before being dethroned and defeated by….you’ll have to tune in to find out!
