An interview with the director of "Unholy." He mentions the movie and says some very nice things about Nicholas Brendon.

I've grown from uncaring to very interested in this movie just from reading the interviews with the writer and director. They sound like people that are extremely passionate about thier work which is refreshing, and usually comes through in their creations.
I think this movie will really show people the range he's truly capable of as an actor.

The more I watched Buffy the more I marveled at Nick's performance. Oh, jeez, I just hope this movie is good, or, at least, popular.
Sounds promising. NB should be able to escape from the Xander typecasting and do good stuff, as should all the 'Verse actors.

Maybe because their characters were so great, so real, that that's why people have problems seeing them in other roles. Why Alexis, for one, isn't an A list movie star already I have no idea.
"We'd be in the middle of an incredibly tense scene. I'd call cut and within seconds, Nicky would take everyone from the edge of their seats to rolling on the floor."

I bet Brendon would be great at improvisational comedy: perhaps the hardest form of comedy to do well. He just needs the outlet. Maybe when people see what he's capable of dramatically, someone will put enough faith and resources into his future so he can really shine out there. He's absolutely at his best when he's supporting others. He's like Dan Ackroyd in that way. Whether it's comedy or drama, he knows when to steal the limelight, when to lend focus and when to pull back. I'm looking forward to seeing his performance chemistry with Ms. Barbeau.
Im interested in this movie.
I hope it will be successful.

What happened to the website? Its still closed.
I just hope the movie ends up being decent. These days horror flicks get cut so that they can get a PG-13 rating, and they're all about trying to scare you instead of actually trying to have a story and scare you at the same time. Gore is ok with me. Just don't assume I'm stupid.

I really hope this is a good movie especially because I want it to be succesful for both leads.
Angel TheVampire - the unsubstantiated rumour is (as extraordinary as this sounds) that the website was closed as a result of a "Cease and Desist" order from the Department of Homeland Security or something similar. The other theory, of course was that it was a publicty stunt for the site/movie!

Given the nature of the movie, conspiracy theorists can feel free to jump in anytime now, whichever version is true - or is something bigger still ?

Sorry, couldn't resist adding that last bit, just to really get those heads exploding!
Total and complete sense of humour failure, plus I dont live in America, but IF this is a publicity stunt, it would be in extremely poor taste.

We are pretty much at the cutting edge here in London with regard to a possible and potential terrorist attack, so I dont find stuff like that funny at all. Sorry, probably overreacting, but honestly.
I think the Blair Witch Project has a lot to answer for in regards to internet publicity stunts.

I would love to see Nick in a Tarentino movie.
The interview is great.. it was fantastic to read all of the nice things the director had to say about Nick. :)

Koos: Amen to that!
