Friday, we get down and dirty with some half-demon hybrids.
On this week’s Special “70 minute” episode of Geek Hard, Andrew and Mr. Green get ready to fight the demon apocalypse as they are joined in studio by Brigitte Kingsleyand Nug Nahrgang, two of the stars from the indie horror/comedy hit, Dark Rising 2 – Summer Strikes Back, currently available on DVD. Brigitte and Nug will tell us all about the film, as well as the entire Dark Rising Franchise. If you like movies where hot chicks with special powers fight demons and crack wise, then Dark Rising is for you. Here’s a quick bio on each of our guests:
BRIGITTE KINGSLEY – While pursuing her acting career, Brigitte graduated from York University with her Bachelor of Fine Arts, and launched a production company Defiant Empire Corporation with business partner Andrew Cymek. She produced and starred in her first feature film Dark Rising in 2007. The low-budget indie feature was released through Universal Vivendi in Canada and through E1 Koch in the US. It also earned Brigitte a Canadian Comedy Award Nomination for Best Female Performance in 2008. Her feature film Medium Raw: Night of the Wolf ,an action-thriller starring John Rhys Davies (Lord of the Rings), William B. Davies (X-Files), Mercedes McNab (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Jay “Christian” Reso (WWE) is set to be released in August 2011 through Anchor Bay and her project Dark Rising has since expanded into a sequel Dark Rising: Summer Strikes Back! and a television series Dark Rising: The Savage Tales of Summer Vale currently airing on Super Channel.
NUG NAHRGANG is familiar to many as “Good Ol’ Reliable Jake” in Evil Dead: The Musical during it’s Toronto run. He has also appeared in movies such as Cube: Zero, Men With Brooms, and The Love Guru. Nug has been featured as a recurring cast member on SyFy Channel’s “Scare Tactics” and CBC’s “The Ron James Show”. Recently, he’s been one-half of Chuck & Vince in the successful “WE WANT IT!” recycling campaign for the City of Toronto. He’s a nerd for comics, wrestling, and chicken wings. And, ladies, he’s single.
But that’s not all. Andrew and Mr. Green have finally come to the end of their month long of reading DC comics and they’ll be giving their “New 52 Round Up”. Listen as they give their picks for best and worst, and our guests might even throw in their two cents as well. Find out what Books are Hits and which ones are as lame as a mid-90s poly-bagged holofoil cover.
