Beast Wishes, the Bob and Kathy Burns Documentary
I got a chance to catch the screening of the BEAST WISHES documentary at Wonderfest this year. This documentary was made by Frank Dietz and Trish Geiger and is a loving tribute to fandom's favorite monster kids, Bob and Kathy Burns. It played to a packed house and received a standing ovation afterwards.
Beast Wishes tells the story of Bob and Kathy Burns and all the amazing adventures they've had through the years while weaving in personal remembrances from friends of theirs along the way, many of whom are well know professionals in the Hollywood Sci-fi/Horror community such as Rick Baker, Joe Dante, John Landis, and many, many more.
The DVD will be out soon - currently it is playing the festival and convention circuit. This is a really top notch documentary and a DVD that all classic science fiction and horror fans will enjoy and want to own, and it was my privilege to take part in this documentary. Frank told me that the title of the blooper reel, BEAST WITCHES, was inspired from one of my outtakes, where I messed up the title while shooting my bits - "This is Dr. Gangrene and you're watching the Beast Witches documentary. Wait a minute, that's not right. What the name of this thing?" LOL. Glad I could help, Frank!
