The Core is a dissection of the brilliant minds from which genre films spring. Whether it’s a demo on head explosions, or a primer on avoiding predictable jump scares, The Core busts open the traditional talk show and plays with its guts. Host Mickey Keating and his guests examine the onscreen techniques and real-life psychologies that strike fear into our very core. We’ll turn you on to what’s thrilling in filmmaking today, without subjecting you to a chat with that dude Greg from film school.
In the just-released episode – the season finale – Danzig chats with Core host Mickey Keating about his creative process, career in music and film, favorite horror movie scenes and his wildly popular erotic comic book series, Verotica.
Kayden introduces the show with a star turn as Verotica’s devilishly cruel Morella, a ‘Satanika Villainess’ who approaches a screaming woman chained in captivity, whispering “Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble… what utter nonsense!” before gouging out the hapless woman’s eyes with razor-sharp nails…
“This was one of the most unique projects I’ve ever worked on, and it was such an honor to be chosen for the role,” said Kayden. “I used to go on stage to Danzig songs when I was eighteen working as a dancer… I never in a million years would have believed back then that I’d even meet him, much less play one of his characters on TV.”
The Core is the latest mainstream project Kayden has starred in over the course of her 11-year entertainment career, including appearances in the FX series The League, AMC’s Breaking Bad, G4’s The Block, Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels and indie films Blue Dream, Highway to Havasu and The Hungover Games.
