Conroe’s Homelands Land Outstanding Role in New Horror Movie “Cult of Blood”


Jessie Hobson, originally from Conroe, has this honor, however. Hobson played one of the main zombies in the horror movie “VFW” released in 2019 and starring George Wendt, Martin Kove from “Cobra Kai” and “Karate Kid”, Stephen Lang from “Avatar” and others. .

In another scene from the same movie, he had his makeup done and was later killed by Lang.

“It was a great experience,” Hobson said of the film.

Hobson, who has many commercial credits, broke into the indie horror genre in 2018 with “Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich” which was filmed in Dallas. It got its foot in the door with “Fangoria”, an internationally distributed American horror film fan magazine.

This led to his involvement in “VFW” and other projects.

In April, he spent several weeks filming his latest project, the Robbie Lopez directed “Cult of Blood”. Hobson plays Joey Danger.

This is an unsuspecting group of young adult online influencers and their loved ones who find themselves crossing paths with a murderous cult of tense vampires on a crazy drunken party night only to realize that things aren’t that funny and this holiday feels more like an evil blood ritual with the “Dark Lord” in the front row.

For Hobson, these experiences fueled his long-standing love for somewhat off-center films.

Hobson grew up in Conroe going to the movies with his father at Cinema 6 (now Star Cinema Grill) and the Wood Creek Theater on Frazier Street (now an event location).

When they weren’t going to the movies, he loved renting movies from the Krogers then located where Hobby Lobby is now.

For him, the film selection process was often more entertaining than the film itself.

“Alley of Horror has always interested me. More often than not, I ended up renting one or two and didn’t finish them because I was too scared, ”he said.

But what he found was that he liked offbeat family movies and turned to direct video releases from Moonbeam Entertainment.

“It was almost horror, but for the PG audience,” he said. Some of his favorites were “Prehisteria,” a three-part family monster comedy film series made between the early to mid-1990s about the adventures of five miniature baby dinosaurs named after famous pop musicians. He also liked “Remote” a “Home Alone” type movie but with a much lower budget.

“You wouldn’t know the difference when you were a kid,” he said.

When he came of working age he worked at Hastings and was often sought after by clients for his unique taste for cinema.

He attended Sam Houston State University and earned a degree in Mass Communication. Today, he works for the university producing advertisements and creating online content for faculty.

Inevitably, he often found himself in front of the camera to fill in when needed.

In 2018, when he found out that “Puppet Master” was filming in Dallas, he was ready for an on-screen role.

And he had a score to settle with a puppet from his childhood.

His grandfather traveled a lot for his oil work. On one of his trips, he brought Hobson a puppet.

“I swore it was moving,” he said. It scared him so much that he became ill when he was a child.

So when the movie “Puppet Master” came out, it was time for revenge.

He started out as one of the background actors, but was later pulled from the crowd for a scene at the bar.

He said there were a lot more experienced actors there and not sure why they went with a 6ft chubby guy from Conroe.

“It wasn’t a huge role, but it was a feather in my cap to finally defeat the ‘Puppet Master’,” he said.

This led to other projects with “Fangoria” and a Facebook friendship with director Robbie Lopez – also a tattoo artist and MMA fighter.

“He saw my stuff on YouTube and asked me if I wanted to play a hotter, cruder version of myself,” he said.

Hobson also filmed an appearance for Lopez’s upcoming film, “Protect Me,” a medieval vampire horror film.

Both films are slated for release in 2022.
