INTERVIEW: ERIK STOLHANSKE

Interview Conducted by Stuart D. Monroe

Horror and comedy are kissing cousins. The relationship between the two is as old as the genre itself. That union has also produced some truly classic horror-comedies like Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein, An American Werewolf in London, Shaun of the Dead, and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (to name but a scant few of my favorites), movies that became something more than the sum of their genre parts.

In today’s rather dodgy and PC land mine-laden landscape, one comedy troupe stands safely impervious to the slings and arrows of the easily offended. Broken Lizard is comprised of Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske. They’re America’s version of Monty Python for the 21st century; icons to potheads and party animals across the country. They’re also pretty big horror fans and even made their own horror-comedy with the criminally underrated 2004 slasher, Club Dread, with the late legend Bill Paxton joining the fun.

Erik Stolhanske (best known as Rabbit in Super Troopers / Super Troopers 2) has embraced the genre convention scene with a vengeance. He’s come to my hometown of Justin, Texas to hang with us at Frightmare Collectibles (a.k.a. the physical arm of Texas Frightmare Weekend) to talk all things Broken Lizard as well as his taste in horror and upcoming projects. Horror DNA TV is proud to present everyone’s favorite “rookie beotch”, the multifaceted and multitalented Erik Stolhanske.

And yes, you will find out about both Super Troopers 3 and maybe even Potfest. Enjoy!

About The Author
Stuart D. Monroe
Staff Reviewer - USA
Stuart D. Monroe is a man of many faces – father, husband, movie reviewer, published author of short horror, unsuccessful screenwriter (for now), rabid Clemson Tiger, Southern gentleman, and one hell of a model American who goes by the handle "Big Daddy Stu" or "Sir". He's also highly disturbed and wears that fact like a badge of honor. He is a lover of all things horror with a particular taste for the fare of the Italians and the British. He sometimes gets aroused watching the hardcore stuff, but doesn't bother worrying about whether he was a serial killer in a past life as worrying is for the weak. He was raised in the video stores of the '80s and '90s. The movie theater is his cathedral. He worships H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, and Clive Barker. When he writes, he listens obsessively to either classical music or the works of Goblin to stimulate the neural pathways. His favorite movie is Dawn of the Dead. His favorite book is IT. His favorite TV show is LOST.
