Deadhouse Interview: Ted Geoghegan


Photo by Daniel Bergeron

Set for release in Canada on October 13th, We Are Still Here is the directorial debut of Ted Geoghegan. Having been involved in the horror genre for well over a decade, Geoghegan has been involved in writing such films as Demonium and Sweatshop as well as making small acting cameos in Hatchet III and Sharknado 2: The Second One. After so many years amongst the genre, Geoghegan finally climbed behind the camera to direct We Are Still Here, a film that he also wrote. The film is currently available in the US, and Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada is releasing the film here in the Great White North. It is currently available in digital format, with the release of DVD and Blu-Ray set for next week on October 13th. I had a chance to exchange an email with Ted to talk about We Are Still Here, including influences, as well as having some well-known genre stalwarts such as Barbara Crampton and Larry Fessenden in the cast. I am happy to present the newest Deadhouse Interview with Ted Geoghegan!

Deadhouse Interview – Robby Bloodshed

With the recent release of Robby Bloodshed‘s newest effort, Leave Them Hooked, the man is back in the spotlight of the horrorpunk genre. While not as explicitly horrorpunk as many of the bands featured here on The Deadhouse, Bloodshed has integrated himself well into the genre, working with a bevy of bands ranging from Vagora to Children Of October. We have been lucky enough to get in touch with Robby and he has been kind enough to take some time out of his busy schedule to sit down and answer a few questions for us here. So without further a due, let’s hear from the man himself!

Deadhouse Interview: Ari Lehman of First Jason


The Deadhouse has always had its main focus on horrorpunk and horror movies since the beginning. While these two mediums always have some crossover, never is it more evident than with Ari Lehman. As both an actor and musician, Lehman has attacked the genre from both angles with success. It’s actually becoming a point to be more familiar with Lehman for his musical endeavors more so than his brief exploits in Crystal Lake.

Given the cross audience that is shared between The Deadhouse and Lehman‘s projects, it seemed like a no brainer that our paths would eventually cross. So without further a due, the newest Deadhouse Interview with the one and only, Ari Lehman!

Deadhouse Interview: By The Graveyard Tree

I only discovered By The Graveyard Tree a few months ago, but between their awesome EP Souls (Stereo Terror review here) and becoming social media friends with the majority of the band, they are so infectious and awesome that you cannot help but love them and their music. When I realized that it had been awhile since the last Deadhouse Interview I decided to make the offer to front woman of the band Natasha Feratu for an interview, which was quickly accepted and then just as quickly turned into a full band interview! So without further a due, let’s get to the interview with the amazing By The Graveyard Tree!

Deadhouse Interview: Al B. Damned

I should start by making a confession… When I first started The Deadhouse back at the end of 2013, I never expected it would afford me some of the opportunities that it has. The point of launching the site initially was to give me a chance to write which has long been a passion of mine, while also helping spread the word about these hardworking bands that deserved recognition. While horror movies, books and television shows are also covered, the focus has always been on the world of horrorpunk. As the site gained notoriety I’ve been able to get in touch with several artists that I’ve long admired. Last year I was able to do an interview with Argyle Goolsby, one of the men behind Blitzkid, my all-time favorite band. And now I have had the opportunity to do an interview with the one and only Al B. Damned, who is a close number two behind only Blitzkid for myself.

So without further a due, and to help promote the upcoming March release of For Old Time’s Stake, here is our exclusive interview with Al B. Damned!

Deadhouse Interview: Joey Southside Of The Banner

As The Deadhouse continues to grow, I am sometimes afforded the opportunity to interview people I have long admired and listened to for a long time. I’ve had the privilege of interviewing the likes of Shadow Windhawk And The Morticians (the first supporters of the site, and something I will always love them for!) and Argyle Goolsby of Blitzkid and Silent Horror fame, among others. And now, I proudly bring to you a new interview with Joey Southside, of one my absolute favorite bands, The Banner.

The Banner has been around for well over a decade now, with their first full-length release, the epic Your Murder Mixtape, having been released in 2003. The album begins with the vicious Zombie Onslaught which features samples from the 1968 classic Night Of The Living Dead. The album contains many songs that deal with darker subjects, none better than this writer’s personal favorite, Die Fighting, which is the one song I always throw on when I feel the need to have ambition. Throughout the band’s career they have celebrated their unique style on 2005’s Each Breath Haunted and 2008’s Frailty. Having returned in 2013 with the EP Born To Ruin I: The Way Is Shut, the band once again toys with expectations, including an absolutely haunting cover of the Zola Jesus track, Night.

Without further a due, let’s get to the interview.

Deadhouse Interview: Tyler Toxic of The Suicide Ghouls

While the horrorpunk genre is certainly one bonded with the underground, there is definitely no shortage of bands within it. And as with any genre, whether it be music, film, literature or anything really, there are obviously good ones and ones that aren’t so good. Thankfully, our beloved genre of music has more good than bad. And one of those great bands is Ohio’s own The Suicide Ghouls.

Deadhouse Interview: Tom Ihle, The Man Behind The Mutant Members Only Club

Earlier this week I posted a review of the latest album from The Mutant Members Only Club. As anyone who has ever listened to the band can attest, it is truly the type of music that can only be described as “one of a kind”. You can find that review here, or take a gander through The Deadhouse to take a look.

Following the review, I was able to get in touch with Tom Ihle, the one man crazed beast that comprises The Mutant Members Only Club. Given the positive response to the review and a desire to help spread the horrific word about the man and the band, we decided to go ahead and do a Deadhouse Interview to let people get a better look at the man behind the madness.

So without further a due, here is the newest Deadhouse Interview!
