More talk of Toads...

Spectacular Optical, the official webzine of the Fantasia International Film Festival, caught up with Karim Hussain, Richard Stanley and Douglas Buck to talk The Theatre Bizarre, their Grand Guignol-inspired anthology horror film (along with Buddy Giovinazzo and Tom Savini). Of interest to readers of, Richard Stanley talks about his adaptation of Clark Ashton Smith's Mother of Toads...

"In The Mother of Toads I wanted to take the archetypal figure of a medieval witch, ably embodied by Catriona McColl and recontextualize her for the 21st century, putting the original folk myths through the filter of the twilight worlds of Fulci, Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith."
