Love the comic book series, hate the comic book series; love the AMC TV series, hate the AMC TV series. None of that matters here; it’s all about the posters.
ALT-POSTR-SPOTLIGHT: THE WALKING DEAD
I had a lot of fun with the March Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month, Jennifer Blanc-Biehn. I was able to correspond with her via Facebook and e-mail and she was incredibly cool and appreciative of being this month’s choice. Mind you, I was always cordial and there are two reasons behind this. The first reason is well, duh, I wouldn’t have been anything but cordial and the second reason is in case you haven’t noticed her hyphenated surname is Biehn; as in Michael Biehn. The man has taken on The Terminator, Aliens and Val Kilmer; therefore being cordial to his wife is a top priority.
Jennifer Blanc-Biehn was born Jennifer Tara on April 21, 1974 in New York City and was raised by her mother, the actress Jenise Blanc. By the time Jennifer was 13 she was appearing on Broadway in Neil Simon’s “Brighton Beach Memoirs” alongside Jonathan Silverman, Fisher Stevens and Robert Sean Leonard.
Jennifer’s film credits in the genres of horror, thriller and science fiction include The Crow (voice only, 1994), Prank and Deer Creek Road (2008), The Jack of Spades and The Blood Bond (2010); in 2011 she appeared in The Absent, The Divide and The Victim, the directorial debut of her hubby, Michael Biehn, and Jacob. 2012 saw her star in Among Friends, the directorial debut of her friend and October 2012 Scream Queen Danielle Harris. In 2013 she starred in Broken Blood, Treachery, Malignant and The Night Visitor, her own directorial debut. She kept busy in 2014 with The Legend of Darkhorse County, the Salma Hayek action-thriller Everly and Hidden in the Woods. In 2015 she is set to appear in Altered Perception, The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story, She Rises, Mindless, Havenhurst, Fetish Factory, Deadly Retreat, Psychophonia, Kickback and Fembot. Of these ‘Altered’, ‘Night Visitor 2′, ‘Rises’ and ‘Psychophonia’ and a slew of other upcoming films are being produced through Blanc/Biehn Productions, the production company formed in partnership with her husband, Michael. It is my humble opinion that if you look up the word ‘busy’ in any dictionary you will see a picture of Jennifer Blanc-Biehn right alongside it.
Her non-genre credits (what, you thought I was finished?) include Old Enough (her debut, 1984), The Brady Bunch Movie (1995), The Ride (1997), Fish Without a Bicycle (2003), The Things We Carry (2009) and Cowboys and Indians (2013). Among Jennifer’s TV Movie credits are Cool and the Crazy (1994), Friends ’til the End (1997), The Expendables (2000) and Nuclear Family (2012). She has appeared on several TV series: Hull High (1990), Married with Children (1991), Party of Five (1995), Providence (1999), Dark Angel (2000-2001), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2005), It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (2009) and Zombie Family (2012).
It is a privilege as well as an honor to welcome as the Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month for March, 2o15 the talented and beautiful Jennifer Blanc-Biehn.

SPILLIN’ THE BIEHNS
“Live your dreams and always persevere. Life is complicated. Love and laughter are so amazing and precious. If you have this you are the luckiest.”
I’m at a loss for words; so I’ll let the pictures do the talking. I hope you like them. I hope that he (Leonard Nimoy) would have liked them.
I realize that I try to give credit where I can to the über-talented artists who have created these and many other amazing works of art. This is the moment where I say thank you to those artists.
Can someone tell me if this show was any good?
Just kidding. Breaking Bad is easily in my top 5 of all-time favorite TV shows and therein lies the reason I feature it in this installment of ALT-POSTR-SPOTLIGHT. Besides, who says I was going to feature movies exclusively? Enjoy.
ALT-POSTR-SPOTLIGHT: BREAKING BAD
Welcome to installment number 7 of ALT-POSTR-SPOTLIGHT. This time I feature none other than Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of one of Stephen King’s most popular novels, The Shining. Some loved it while others have vilified it. That’s all well and good; here at ALT-POSTR-SPOTLIGHT it’s all about the posters.
ALT-POSTR-SPOTLIGHT: THE SHINING
As I am always quick to point out if there is a film you want featured on ALT-POSTR-SPOTLIGHT drop a request in the comments and I will see what I can do. It does not have to be for a horror film; every genre of film is welcome. Thank you.
The votes for last weeks poll have been tallied and you, readers and voters, chose Inglourious Basterds as Quentin Tarantino’s best film.
This week’s entrant has a more extensive filmography so move this along, shall we? Don’t forget to vote in the poll after the posters.
What’s Their Best Film?: John Carpenter
From When a Stranger Calls and featuring Charles Durning as John Clifford:
“After the coroner’s investigation the bodies were taken to the mortuary where the undertaker took one look at them and said their bodies couldn’t be reconstructed for the burial without six days of steady work. Then he asked what had been the murder weapon, because looking at the mess in front of him he couldn’t imagine what had been used. The coroner told him there had been no murder weapon. The killer had used only his hands. “
