 James Lipton and the Actors Studio did it for fun with the actors…..Now, I’m doing it for fun with the writers.
  
 
Are you ready for a scary ride?
 
Let me introduce you to horror screenwriter, Brad Keene. Or better still, watch the following trailer to Brad’s 2008 movie, From Within.
 
 
Okay, so how do you feel? Calmed down yet? What’s that? You were too nervous to watch it?
 
I must just tell you this quick story. The first time I met Brad was at our managers offices in L.A. Brad entered and was asked to take a seat only to find Natalie and I already occupied both of them. Poor Brad had to stand. I nearly offered my chair’s arm….I don’t think I’ve told him that 🙂
 
So, let’s find out a little more about  the man who is an expert at scaring people.
 
In 2006, Brad wrote a screenplay with co-writer Chris Skinner, called The Gravedancers’, a story about three friends who, after the death of their friend, drown their sorrows in beer and return to the cemetary…..only to find the following morning the ghost of a child pyromaniac, an axe murdered, and a rapist are terrorising them.
 
 
Then, in 2008 Brad wrote From Within , which boasts the talent of Rumer Willis   and Thomas Dekker. Brad also co-produced this movie which revolves around the residents of a small American town who begin to die one-by-one, apparently by suicide…
 
Then we come to a film we’ve all heard and seen called ‘The Grudge’. Well, in 2009, Brad wrote the third installment, aptly names ‘The Grudge 3′.
 
 
 
But screenwriting isn’t the only talent Brad has. With vetran writer and illustrator Shannon Eric Denton, Brad wrote Fleshdigger , a comic strictly for the older audience and one that premiered to a hail of praise from fans and comic readers alike.
 
And if that wasn’t enough to prove this writer has what it takes to prove his worth, his debut novel ‘Hat Trick’, is released by ZOVA Books in May 2012 and has a TV series ready for production later this year.
 
So, what could the man, who admits to being raised watching The Incredible Hulk, make of our ten questions?
 
 1.  What is your favorite word?  Persistence
 
2. What is your least favorite word? Resistance
 
3. What turns you on?   Energy
 
4. What turns you off?    Fatigue
 
5. What sound do you love?   Laughter
 
6. What sound do you hate? Chewing
 
7. What is your favorite curse word?   Dayum
 
8. What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?   Comedian
 
9.  What profession would you not like to do?  Mortician
 
10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?Well, well, well. Look who it is! That wasn’t so bad. What’s with the concerned expresion? Relaz. I’m letting you in. I wouldn’t allow people to loiter at the gates unless entry was imminent. There’s enough anziety on Earth. So, come on in. By the way, I can’t wait to hear your clever stance on religion now. This  shifts the discussion a bit, doesn’t it? Oh. There’s that expression again. Don’t worry. All is forgiven…..and yes, we have a casino. People always ask about a casino as if being in Heaven isn’t enough. I’m not offended. It’s the best casino around. You’ll love it!”
