Excited to announce that my recent interview with the legendary Toni Basil has now been published in the new issue of SHOCK CINEMA. Looks like another excellent issue, much thanks again to Toni for giving me so much of her time for the interview. Toni is an actor/singer/dancer/choreographer who has had an incredibly interesting and eclectic career dating back to the early-sixties, appearing in beach party movies, dancing with Davy Jones in HEAD, tangling with giant teens (and ducks) in VILLAGE OF THE GIANTS, hooking up with Peter Fonda in EASY RIDER, hitching a ride with Jack Nicholson in FIVE EASY PIECES and so much more. She also starred in a couple of rock horror movies in the late-80s/early-90s: SLAUGHTERHOUSE ROCK and ROCKULA. Amongst her most recent work was choreographing the dance sequences in ONCE UPON A TIME...IN HOLLYWOOD. And of course, she scored a huge pop hit in 1982 with "Mickey", along with its memorable video, which was considered quite creative and ground-breaking in its day.

SHOCK CINEMA #60 is a print-only publication, and is now available from the magazine's website, while issues should start popping up in book and specialist stores and newsstands from next week.
