I am loving my job when I get a chance to get an EARLY digital screening of the new R.L. Stine movie “Cabinet of Souls” prior to it hitting DVD and Digital! Also, getting the opportunity to interview one of the main stars, Ryan McCartan is a lot of fun! Ryan plays Hunter in this movie and has a NEW song coming out with his Liv & Maddie co-star and girlfriend, Dove Cameron. They are one of the cutest young hollywood couples. Plus, they can both sing, they started together on Disney, and they are both great looking! It doesn’t get cuter than this folks!
So if you are a teen or have your own teen, moms, they are going to love this holiday movie that will have them entertained and on the edge of their seat.
Starring Dove Cameron (Descendants), Katherine McNamara (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials), Ryan McCarten (Liv and Maddie), and Tiffany Espensen (Kirby Buckets) comes an original chilling adventure. When a traveling Hall of Horrors show arrives in the town of Danville, high school friends can’t wait to get spooked. The monsters, zombies, and ghouls are completely lifelike, and the villainous showman, Dr. Hysteria, and his enchanting assistant, Lilith, really know how to turn up the scares. But when Beth discovers a haunted cabinet backstage that traps the souls of lost teens, it’s up to the gang to stop the mayhem before they are trapped forever.
How did you land the part in this movie? Casting was interested in having Dove and I play these two roles. We love working together. It all worked out great.
Did anything spooky ever happen while filming this movie? We shot in an actual haunted house. Before we shot the scene, they had us go through the real haunted house to get our adrenaline going. It worked. It scared the bejesus out of us.
Do you enjoy playing acting in a scary movie or do you prefer a fun sitcom? My character never really got scared in the movie. I would love to have an opportunity to act terrified because I love scary movies.
Did you or the cast ever play jokes on each other during filming to scare each other? I pulled a lot of pranks on Tiffany in the haunted house excursion but we didn’t prank each other. We played a lot of games while we were bored on set and told lots of riddles.
Do you believe in ghosts? Absolutely. I’m certain I’ve seen them.
Do you like dressing up for Halloween? What do you want to be this year? I love dressing up for Halloween. This year Dove and I are dressing up as Jessie & James from Pokemon’s Team Rocket.
Did you ever read R.L. Stine’s books growing up? Oh yeah. We had a reading quota to fill in elementary school and I would always check out Goose Bumps books.
What is your favorite scary movie? Blair Witch Project and Amityville Horror remake with Ryan Reynolds.
