Drive-In Asylum #23 is here, and we’ve got another stellar issue for you to dig into! You can get it at the Etsy shop right now.
First off, we’ve got two fantastic interviews; the first is with Pat Cardi, who starred in the 1973 independent regional production Horror High, which many of us saw on TV in the 70s & 80s as Twisted Brain. Pat talks to us about his career in acting, working with genre luminary William Castle, his experiences as a child actor, and of course making the low budget thriller Horror High with director Larry Stouffer, co-stars Austin Stoker and Rosie Holotik, and a few Dallas Cowboys, too.
We’ve also got an interview with Kristine DeBell in this issue, too – yes, A.L. from Meatballs herself! In addition to that 1979 film, Kristine has worked with such names as Nick Castle (TAG: The Assassination Game), Jackie Chain (The Big Brawl), Paul Mazursky (Willie & Phil) and many others. She talks to us about her experiences in genre cinema, as well as her return to acting after a 22 year hiatus.
Plenty of other great features in this issue too, including personal recollections of attending exploitation screenings in grindhouses and lots of reviews, too!
In this issue, I contributed a painting of Dr. Phibes to go with a great article about those films and something about the Nightmare Theater syndication package.
This issue has 60 black and white pages, some pages printed on colored paper, 5.5 x 8.5 inches in size.
