Woodhaven Production Company has posted an interview with Godsmack‘s Sully Erna discussing his starring role in Army Of The Damned, which is now available on iTunes and VOD.

You can watch the interview below.
Review written by Shannon Larkin
So it was with much trepidation that I boarded the plane on my way to the “Rock N Shock” Horror Convention in Worcester, MA. You may wonder why a horror fiend like myself would have these feelings en route to a cool convention of this nature, right? Well in a nutshell, I was invited to a screening of “Army Of The Damned” by the lead actor in the movie, Sully Erna, who also happens to be the singer for the band Godsmack (which is the band I’ve been in for over a decade). So I’m thinking, “What if this movie sucks? What if HE sucks?!” He knows how much I’m into horror, and that I’ve been writing reviews for the mighty Bloody-Disgusting.com for quite some time, so that is why I had my fingers firmly crossed that I wouldn’t be let down and have to give my friend and band member negative vibes. Sooo…
After meeting Sully at the bar across from the convention center and having a drink (and seeing many familiar faces, family, and friends), I headed over to check out the booths and soak in the vibe of the convention before heading to the screening. As usual, I’m like a kid in a candy store, and getting excited for the movie. Finally, it was time…
I headed to the third floor of the convention center and joined the queue. While waiting, there was a satellite bar in line so I had another drink and was let into the screening room after a short wait. I must say I was let down by the fact that it was not a theatre, as I always pictured seeing my friend’s film with popcorn, a comfortable seat, a giant screen, and a kick ass sound system. There was none of that. That’s the bad news; the good news is, it was still fun, very personal (hearing the friends and families of the cast and crew cheering was a first for me), and the movie was well done. Without further ado, the review… READ MORE

“The film portrays five teenage friends who are taken hostage by a vengeful psychopath and forced to play a party game with life-or-death consequences. Their only hope is to work together and turn the tables on their assailant, even if they must risk their lives in the process. The scene is set for a shocking denouement as secrets are revealed in an epic blood-soaked final confrontation.” David Oakes, Jennie Jacques, Liam Boyle, Jack Gordon and Alexander Vlahos all star.

Godsmack drummer and horror expert Shannon Larkin is back with another Bloody-Disgusting Selects review! This time he tackles the zombie period-flick Exit Humanity, which is now available on VOD, DVD, and iTunes. You can read his in-depth, kinda spoiler-ish review below.
Godsmack will be co-headlining the 2012 Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival this summer. Tour dates and ticket information can be found here.
Starring horror icons Bill Moseley (Devil’s Rejects, House of 1000 Corpses), Dee Wallace (E.T., Cujo), Stephen McHattie (Pontypool, The Watchmen, 300), and new horror hero Mark Gibson, Exit Humanity is a zombie saga that tells the tale of the ultimate battle of good vs. evil. Brian Cox provides narration.
“How does a man deal with the loss of everything meaningful in his life, and the loss of mankind’s humanity amongst chaos and despair? Set in 1870’s Tennessee, Exit Humanity is the legend of Edward Young’s horrific and dramatic journey through an unexplainable outbreak of the walking dead to lay to rest the most important thing in his life, his son’s ashes. The bleak post-Civil War era backdrop highlights the severe divide that the United States was facing, and the true loss of hope that so many felt during this period in history.“ READ MORE
