An Interview with David Prior

If you consider yourself a videovore, a BETA collecting junkie, or even just a diehard fan of cult cinema, then there is no doubt you know the name David Prior. The writer-director has blessed the underground film scene with his wildly inventive work for three decades, and many of the movies he released during the VHS boom of the 1980’s have now become beloved cult classics. With such memorable films as Sledgehammer, Night Wars, Raw Justice and the infamous Deadly Prey, Prior has solidified himself as a film-wizard favorite among we subterraneous horror and exploitation fanatics.

Last month, we at Tavern of Terror launched a new series of interviews exploring the subculture of horror film fans who also have a passion for fitness. I’m calling these articles The Muscle of Horror. I’m interviewing directors, musicians, writers and other talents to discuss their passion for imagination as well as fitness, and to examine how those two worlds come to collide.

UPDATE: What’s Lurking (and some news about a book)

Posted on Nov 14, 2013 in Books, Hardcore Gore, Indie Horror | 1 comment

The autumn wind howls like a distant wolf. The air turns not just cold, but a little bit mean. Winter lurks inward with shorter days and ruthless nights.




It may seem like a ghost town over here at Tavern of Terror, but trust me when I say that we have incredible things in the works – including interviews, contests, reviews, giveaways and some solid new articles.

But beyond that, your bartender (and head content writer here) Kristopher Triana is hard at work on a forthcoming horror BOOK being published by Blue Juice Comics. Stay tuned for more home-brewed horrors, fright fans!
