TERROR TALK, TERROR TV’s first original project, has begun airing monthly 60-minute specials featuring a variety of guests – known for their work in the macabre media – discussing the genre’s reaction to everything from how fandom has changed to violence and sexual content in film to how the industry has affected world affairs – then and now.

TERROR TALK, hosted by indie film & stage producer and horror genre historian, JAY MICHAELS, has already spotlighted ANTHONY C. FERRANTE, director of the Sharknado series; KELLITA SMITH from Syfy’s Z Nation; REGGIE BANNISTER & GIGI BANNISTER from the popular horror film franchise, Phantasm; SARA KARLOFF and LYNNE LUGOSI-SPARKS, who shared stories of their famous father and grandfather respectively and JOE MOE, horror genre writer/director/designer and former caretaker of Famous Monsters of Filmland founder, Forrest J Ackerman. Other guests have included Stoker award-winning author, OWL GOINGBACK; JOHN SKIPP, known as one of the godfathers of the literary movement “Splatterpunk;” and scream-queen CAROLINE WILLIAMS from Texas Chainsaw Massacre II.

TERROR TALK is a sponsor of the Phantasm Virtual Horror Convention.

Terror TV specializes in presenting compelling independent films with a dark twist. From classic indies like Vincent Price in (the eerily timely) Last Man on Earth British imports like My Guardian Angel, the channel focuses on horror, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, mystery, thrillers, and even a few comedic turns.

TERROR TV is executive produced by DARRIN RAMAGE, president of the film conglomerate M3 – Maxim Media Marketing, Inc and CEO of production facilities Sun Studios of Arizona. M3 has grown to be recognized as the most powerful distributors of independent Thriller/Horror/Sci-Fi films to the world market. Mr. Ramage exhibits and attends notable film markets around the world such as Cannes Film Festival, MipTV, MipCOM, Hong Kong Filmart and AFM. Home Entertainment labels Brain Damage Films and Midnight Releasing are recognized as some of the largest independent Thriller/Horror labels in North America and has expanded around the world through trademark licensing.

TERROR TALK is produced by Council Tree Productions’ partner JOEL EISENBERG, who also developed projects with or sold projects to FOX Studios, CBS-Decades, TNT, Atari, Roddenberry Entertainment, Cinemax, and Warner Brothers, among others.
