Fango loves checking in with our actor pal Bill Moseley,
who, when he’s not appearing at a convention across these 50 states, is
traipsing the globe to appear in new fright flicks. Moseley gave us the scoop
on his latest movies, plus we have a few exclusive pics, too.
First stop: the Lone Star State. “I just shot a feature down
in Dallas called THE INFLICTION,” Moseley tells Fango. “The movie was
written/produced/directed by and stars 24-year-old Matthan Harris (pictured,
with Moseley). It’s a serial killer saga. Sid Haig, Doug Bradley and I
co-star.” In THE INFLICTION (the three exclusive pics are from that movie), Moseley plays the father of the film’s killer.
CANNIBAL FEROX’s Giovanni Lombardo Radice (!) stars as a detective on the case.
Next, the REPO!/DEVIL’S REJECTS star will need his passport.
“I’m headed to Italy’s Orvieto Fantasy Horror Film Festival in two weeks to
pick up an award there. From Italy, I’ll hop over to Barcelona to shoot a
feature called MUGWORTH: THE REAL CHRISTMAS TALE for writer/director Marc
Fernández García. Debbie Rochon [as Laia the Witch] is in it, too.”
According to their Facebook synopsis, “Mugworth is a man who
thinks that Christmas is over-commercialized. But there’s something in his
house that will teach him the true meaning of this holiday.” An anthology film,
MUGWORTH will collect five Christmas-themed horror stories. “You will laugh,
cry, and maybe you will try to commit suicide when the movie ends,” the
filmmaker promises. Other scare people cast include THE HILLS HAVE EYES’
Michael Berryman, REPO!’s Darren Smith, CHAINSAW SALLY’s April Burril, 2001
MANIACS’ Christa Campbell, 2001 MANIACS: FIELD OF SCREAMS’ Nicole Rae, SAW 3D’S
Gabrielle West, Troma chief Lloyd Kaufman, STAKE LAND’s Eilis Cahill and García
himself. “In MUGWORTH, which is a Spanish horror movie loosely based on A
CHRISTMAS CAROL, I play the Scrooge character, Bellousinni,” Moseley says.
The actor should hold onto his Spanish language dictionary
for his follow-up film jaunt, which will also find him playing one of history’s
most notorious killers. “In July, I head to Puerto Rico to play Charles Manson
in writer/director Susanna Lo’s movie MANSON GIRLS,” Moseley says. “I get
nervous about playing any living, historical figure (Timothy Leary, for
instance), especially someone like Charles Manson. But when I looked at some
interviews with Manson on YouTube, I realized that not only did he have a
pretty good sense of humor, he was a poet to boot. I don’t mind as much going
to the dark places if I have a little light to balance it out.”
MANSON GIRLS’ killer cast includes PLANET OF THE APES’
Estella Warren, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE’s Eric Balfour, KILL THEORY’s Taryn
Manning, LOST’s Tania Raymonde, FREDDY VS. JASON’s Monica Keena, HOSTEL: PART
TWO’s Heather Matarazzo, MULHOLLAND DR.’s Laura Harring, DEVIL’S REJECTS’
Priscilla Barnes, TAMARA’s Chad Faust and THE FIFTH FLOOR’s Patti D'Arbanville.
Coincidentally, Moseley’s INFLICTION co-star, Radice, has a rival Manson
project in preproduction, MANSON RISING, for writer/director Andrew Jones.
“Meanwhile, I’m trying to help William ‘Tony’ Hooper, Tobe’s
son, finance the completion of his long-lost ALL-AMERICAN MASSACRE movie,” says
Moseley, referring to the long-mooted TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE tribute film that
has the actor recreating his Chop-Top Sawyer character from the first sequel.
“Anyone who cares to contribute to Tony’s horror debut can go to kickstarter.com
and type in ALL-AMERICAN MASSACRE.”
Stop back tomorrow for an exclusive interview (and more
pics) with THE INFLICTION’s Harris.
