SCRIMM GOES FOR ADULT SWIM
Everyone?s favorite Tall Man will host Cartoon Network?s AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE MARATHON OF HORROR on Halloween night, October 31. Scrimm will do promos and bumpers for a four-hour festival (beginning 11 p.m. Eastern/Pacific time) of episodes of the cult animation sensation. 'I?m not playing the Tall Man,' Scrimm tells Fango, 'but I do wear a black suit and make my patented scary faces.'
'I?ve always been a big PHANTASM fan,' says Matt Maiellaro, who created, produces and writes AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE with Dave Willis. Maiellaro, who grew up reading Fango, adds, 'We put a lot of bloodletting into AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE and strive to push the envelope of cable TV. I?m a big fan of horror.' AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE features an oddball collection of characters like Master Shake (yes, he?s a beverage), Meatwad (a burgerlike blob) and Frylock (cholesterol be damned!) and details their adventures in, uh, hanging out. The AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE marathon will air such freakazoid favorites as 'Love Mummy,' 'Bus of the Undead,' 'Video Ouija,' 'Cybernetic Ghost' and 'Balloonenstein.'

New Yorkers, meanwhile, can see Scrimm in person as he hosts his latest horror film, THE OFF SEASON, and the original PHANTASM at the Two Boots Pioneer Theater on Thursday, October 28 starting at 7 p.m.
