you're a horror fan with a taste for quick-to-make tasty dishes, I would urge

Joe Zaso, whose credits includes the enormously popular Timo Rose film BARRICADE,
DARKNESS SURROUNDS ROBERTA, and Timo Rose's BEAST among many others.

premise takes actors and actresses who have appeared in horror films and get
them to show you how to make a delicious dish to eat while watching them battle
(or run away from) the forces of evil.
The show is currently shot in the apartment of Bryan Norton, film
professor at the New York Film Academy in New York City. In additional to producing the show, Bryan
has also directed and released an award-winning short horror film, PENNY
|PENNY DREADFUL (2006)|
DREADFUL stars Betsy Palmer, best known to horror film audiences as Mrs.
Voorhees in FRIDAY THE 13th. His pad is
covered with photos and posters of horror films primarily from the 1970's and
1980's and therefore provides the perfect backdrop to the business at
asked how the idea for the show began, Joe replied, "It was this past
winter and I was in between projects. I
was in the middle of cooking, which is something that I like to do when I am
not doing other things, and I was inspired by Jessica Harper's Crabby Cook
Cookbook. At one point I decided that I
was going to have a cooking blog to share recipes, and then I decided to create
a Facebook fan page, and then I thought, Well,
why not give it a name? I've always
been called a horror himbo, kind of a play on the word "bimbo," and
then the name of Cafe Himbo was suggested.
Then someone else said that I should do a video to go along with it,
where I prepare dishes with genre people, and it kind of fell into place
shooting it at Bryan's. It has had its
share of growing pains, but it kind of encompasses everything that I have been
doing over the last few years. I used to
do cooking demos for people to supplement my income. "
addition to preparing dishes, the show features lighthearted banter between Joe
and his guests, with references to the movies that the guests have appeared
in. Each episode runs about 20 minutes
in length. Joe continues, "On the
Facebook page, we also have the recipes for the dishes that the guests have
made, that way you can see them and download them easily."
first two episodes of the show are available to see on Bryan Norton's Vimeo page as well as

Episode one features actress Catherine Mary Stewart, whom genre fans
know as the sales girl in NIGHTHAWKS, Regina in NIGHT OF THE COMET, Maggie,
Lance Guest's girlfriend in THE LAST STARFIGHTER, and Miranda in
NIGHTFLYERS. However, Joe's favorite
movie of Catherine's is the futuristic musical from 1980 called THE APPLE.
