Interview with Don Henry CEO of 12 Nights Of Horror
Would you please introduce yourself and tell us how you got into horror?
Thank you for the interview! I’m very happy we got to add the Everything Horror Podcast show to our website, 12nightsofhorror.com, on what we call “The Horror-Cast” Page.
How did 12 Nights of Horror start?
So, after Fractured having been optioned, but not financed, a few times, my goal became to retire as early as possible and pursue my passion of writing and doing something with my love of Horror movies full time. A couple of years ago, just for fun, I wrote a song as a parody of the 12 Days Of Christmas… Called, The 12 Nights Of Horror (See song below). People always ask me why not 13 Nights, which sounds more horrors, but I always tell them the 13th Night is Halloween! Also, 13 Nights of Horror has already been done. After I wrote the song, I decided to launch a Twitter account to promote the song, @12NightHorror, which has grown and become more than just a promotion of the 12 Nights song. It has become a promotion of everything Horror! This is fun, because I really enjoy all the sub-genre’s of Horror; Slasher, Ghosts, Demons, Supernatural, Aliens, Serial Killers, Humor and more. So, after the Twitter site had grown to over 40k followers end of 2017, I decided I better start a website for it, which I just launched a couple of months ago.
How does it help connect with other horror fans?
Since we are new, we haven’t been featured, before this article. But with all of our contributors, like your podcast, we get a lot of great mentions and try to promote them all too.
What are your top 5 favorite films?
Oh Yeah, there is also a page coming to 12nightsofhorror.com with not only my top 100 Horror Movies, but actually my top 666 Horror movies of all time. My top 5 Horror movies, you can probably already guess a few… The Exorcist, Halloween, The Shining, Alien and Jaws. Yep, you can tell when Donster grew up! I hope everyone will come checkout the full list and then add your input. I will add a comments section and hopefully have a discussion room on the site as well.
Anything coming out you’re excited for and why?
We have a “coming soon” page with many of the trailers for the upcoming 2018 Horror Movies! Horror fans can easily come and see all the trailers for the upcoming releases, by date. I can’t wait for Halloween 2018 film of course! Also, The First Purge, The Nun, Slender Man, the Suspiria remake and 3 From Hell next year!
Favorite horror soundtrack?
Rob Zombie’s, House Of 1000 Corpses! I listen to it on a regular basis! Then also the soundtrack from, The Omen, which I don’t listen to often for fear of raising the Devil from the depths of Hell! We have a page for Horror music, but it doesn’t have too much added yet. But will in the future!
Your top 5 worst films?
I can think of two right now. They are liked by many Horror fans, but I am not a big fan of any Found-Footage films (even if they were good, I think they’d been better, if they were filmed in a more traditional style). I thought the ending of The Blair Witch was underwhelming. A nice idea, at the time, if you believed it was real footage. I did think it worked for Paranormal Activity and Cloverfield was good, but would have been better without the Found-Footage style. Another Horror movie I didn’t like, the much more recent film, 2017’s “Mother.” I think the ending was too confusing for the viewers, so it lost any impact from the great performances and bizarre happenings, because it made no sense. Some people think that makes it an intelligent film, when people don’t understand it. I think no matter how unique a movie is or how great the twist is, the average viewer needs to really understand the ending, or it doesn’t work. There is no pay off. Good uses of twists that pay off would be, “The Others” and The Sixth Sense. You understood what the twists are, at the very end and that made them satisfying!
What’s the Future for 12 Nights of Horror? Any final words?
