Five FrightFest Facts From director Andrè Gower and Henry Darrow McComas producer of Wolfman’s Got Nards

1. Tell us about your film?
Andre: This documentary looks at the dynamic between fans and the things they love. The things that changed their lives. The things that keep them connected to the feelings they felt during a certain time in their lives. In this case, told through the experiences of fans of The Monster Squad.

Henry: Wolfman’s Got Nards is a life after death story about Fred Dekker and Shane Black’s cult classic, “The Monster Squad”. But instead of solely focusing on the production, we show how a movie that initially failed can grow, change lives, and be adored by so many genre folks across the world. It can be perceived as a how-to achieve cult status movie, an ode to horror filmmaking and VHS tapes, or a good ol’ inspirational documentary with some bite. But really…it’s a beautiful love letter to horror cinema and its fandom.

2. How did you get into making horror movies?
Andre: Being fortunate enough to be the leader of the Squad, I am automatically granted access to the genre world. That status is something I certainly respect as it belongs to the most loyal and appreciative group of fans in any field.

Henry: I got into Horror because it spoke to me at a very young age and my parents made it taboo… When they told me not to look at it, I paid even more attention. It’s that NWA album I wasn’t allowed to own so I found a bootleg and played the volume loud in hopes that more people like me would hear it. Because of this, I strive to add my own personal metaphors to the genre.

3. What film would you love to see screened at FrightFest and why?
Andre: A live commentary screening of Young Frankenstein with Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Marty Feldman, Cloris Leachman, Teri Garr and Peter Boyle. Hey…I can dream can’t I?!

Henry: Tales From The Hood 2, get the first one and make it a double feature, I need to see “the sheeeeit!”

4. If you could create your own award to give at the FrightFest, what would it be and why?
Andre: I’d say…The Most Influential Award. It would be given to filmmakers that have created works that have literally changed, affected and/or inspired people’s lives.
Henry: The “Many Arrows” award. The recipient would win every Arrow Blu-ray pressed. I love this idea because Arrow currently gets too much of my money and will continue receiving my money unless I win this award. This award could save my marriage… Please make this an award…

5. If your life was made into a horror film, what would it be called and who would play the starring role?
Andre: Welcome to Earth with Tom Cruise.

Henry: The Monster Squad. Brent Chalem.
