Since I've been obsessing over the Puppet Master film series most of my life...... and now over Action Labs: Danger Zone's on-going series featuring my favorite killer puppets, I actually got up the nerve to send the writer of the series and Editor-In-Chief of Action Labs, Shawn Gabborin a Weird Science style list of questions....... which thankfully, he decided to play along with. See what stalking gets you kids! To my surprise....... and utter enjoyment, Shawn Gabborin went beyond expectations when he actually turned out to be as huge of a Puppet Master.... and really, Full Moon fan as I am. Now all we have to do is become roommates and start a horror reality show! Let's check out what strange ass questions I threw at Mr. Gabborin and how he amazed me with his answers.
SG: Total fanboy situation (groupie makes me sound cheap… but yeah)! I've been a Full Moon junkie as far back as I can remember. They were actually the first film studio that I started seeking out movies based just on their company name. My friends and I would rent Full Moon movies every weekend growing up, so I have a lot of respect for them and what they've been able to accomplish.
SG: I honestly can't say. Obviously the first 10 films are canon for me, but chances are our worlds split into two different timelines at the point the comics started. That being said, they are bringing Torch back in the 11th film, so we'll see if they go with my origin or not.
SG: Subspecies, no question. Radu is such a badass vampire! And we will be bringing Subspecies into our Full Moon Presents comic line. And it's going to be awesome! Seriously… I was able to pull in a topnotch writer for it, and I'm very excited for what he's got planned for the comic.
SG: It was actually more my mom initiating me into the horror genre! I would get retold Stephen King tales from a very young age (because I couldn't read them) and started watching horror movies at about six. Nothing crazy to start, things like Night of the Creeps and Monster Squad… both of which I just got to see at the drive-in a couple weeks ago… awesome!! Anyway, horror as entertainment was always around growing up.
SG: The original Black Christmas, no question. Perfect atmosphere, beautiful balance of good and cheesy acting, intense kills, and the phone calls are just disturbing. My wife and I watch it every Christmas Eve. If yours isn't the same, we can still be BFFs, but I'll always be harboring a little resentment in the pit of my stomach. We can both live with that, right?
You heard it here first folks, Shawn Gabborin and me are becoming best friends. Be sure to check back here this summer for pictures from our backpacking trip. Seriously though, I want to thank Shawn Gabborin for taking the time to actually look at my crazy questions and come up with equally crazy answers...... at least to you normies out there. I know exactly what he's talking about. Thanks again Shawn.
