    Interview…Director April Mullen on Paranoia and Skewed Reality in ‘Wander’

Case in point, the hilarious-looking preview for the upcoming action comedy, Killing Gunther, starring former Mr. Universe, The Governator himself, the one and only Ah-nuld. Much in the same way Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon was both a spoof and heartfelt homage to a beloved genre (highly recommend btw), this lets Arnie have a lot of fun doing what he does best: blowing things up and leaving a wake of debris, bodies and killer taglines. If you’re a fan of ’80s cinema (and since we’ll never…
