Dollar Bin Horror Spotlight - Mike and Ike

I recently had the privilege to interview two minds in the horror movie biz, Mike and Ike. The best way to describe Mike & Ike is Entertainment Tonight as done by Monty Python. They've been told that they owe the entire entertainment industry an apology (and are damn proud of it!). They review movies, tv, pop culture, but do it with an outlandish sense of humor. They have there own youtube video series which everyone should check out (link in the interview below). On top of all this, they are the creators of the wonderful short horror film, Surprise, which can be viewed below. For all the great work they do, they are in the Dollar Bin Horror Spotlight

Q: First off i want to thank you for the opportunity to do this interview with you. It's my first so bear with me.
Your youtube video series is funny, entertaining, and your not afraid to say what your really thinking. What is the worst and best films you have ever watched?

A: Mike's fav: Network. Ike's fav: Brazil. Our collective fav: Sex Kittens Go to College

Q: You filmed a six minute horror film as part of your youtube video series called "Surprise", which got a great review by I watched it and I must say I loved it. How did you come up with the concept?

A: Go to It was originally an entry for that. As for coming up with the concept...Falcor gave us the idea and we found a pen.

Q: You describe the film as "One camera, one actress, a little blood, and a lot of pain." I love how it just goes right into the story and the main actress who plays Ellen is great. Will there be more films coming from you guys?

A: Yes, both shorts and, if anybody gives us money, features.

Q: The interviews you posted on your myspace blogs are awesome and funny. I love the most recent one with the "voice overs" from various celebs. Is there anyone you haven't interviewed who you want to? and why?

A: There's a list of people we'd love to interview. We're having a hard time getting them to read our names and not go "Who?" Here are a few names: Tim Burton, Clive Barker (And we're working on that one) , ANYBODY from Battlestar Galactica (Ron Moore's), and Justin Case.

Q: I want to thank you again for taking the time to answer these questions. Is there anything you want to promote, get out there, whore before we finish?

A: Yes. We want to whore ourselves. You can find us on myspace at on youtube at on twitter at
AND, if we ever do get money (Hint, hint) we have a phenomenal feature length script we want to direct called Family Values (c). It's a horror film that's NOT a remake or a rip off of anything else.

And for your enjoyment, Ladies and Gents, is Mike and Ike's short film, Surprize.
