R.I.P. DON EDMONDS

We're terribly saddened to learn of the passing of filmmaker Don Edmonds. The actor-turned-director (and producer) was most well known to exploitation film fans for his ILSA movies, ILSA, SHE WOLF OF THE SS and ILSA, HAREM KEEPER OF THE OIL SHEIKS, as well as such features as WILD HONEY, TENDER LOVING CARE, BARE KNUCKLES, TERROR ON TOUR amongst other. He also directed the pilot to SILK STALKINGS and of course appeared alongside Dyanne Thorn (Ilsa herself), Sid Haig and Jack Hill in the 4th "exploitation breakfast" episode of AMERICA'S BAD KIDS. He will be missed...

AMERICA'S BAD KIDS EPISODE 1: HYAENA GALLERY!

About a year ago, FRIGHT friend and occasional ICONS contributor John Torrani launched his own web-series titled "AMERICA'S BAD KIDS". In each episode, John travels across the country in search of the "baddest" kids out there involved in art, comics, movies, music and beyond. To celebrate his first year, we figured that for the next several weeks, every Friday we'd showcase one episode for all you faithful FRIGHT readers out there to check out!

So to kick things off, below you'll find AMERICA'S BAD KIDS EPISODE 1: HYAENA GALLERY! In the debut episode, Torrani hits up Hyaena Gallery in Burbank, California and chats with owner Bill Shafer about the odd & ecclectic artwork that you'd find at his unique shop. Check out the episode 1 below!



Make sure to come back next Friday for the next episode. If you can't wait, head on over to the official BAD KIDS website at: www.americasbadkids.com. You can also find more episodes at the official My Space page: www.myspace.com/americasbadkidstv.

AMERICA'S BAD KIDS Talks Bale Blow Up With McG!

This is too fun not to share. Our FRIGHT buddy, occasional contributor and resident "bad kid" John Torrani was at this past weekend's New York City Comic Con and he asked TERMINATOR: SALVATION director McG about the now infamous Christian Bale blow-up "incident". You can check out a snippet embedded below, and the full exchange over at www.americasbadkids.com.



While you're at it, check out the awesome dance remix of the Bale Blow Up below. It's catchy as hell. (And is currently residing on my My Space page!)
