FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – This year for Valentine’s Day, is it going to be grocery store flowers and cheap candy again guys? Maybe you should think outside of the box of chocolates.

The Cutting Edge Haunted House in Fort Worth is turning the day of love into a day of fun…and fear!

Todd James of Cutting Edge told KRLD’s JD Ryan “this is our seventh year doing the Valentine’s Day show. We started doing it just because it just seemed fun, but it grew really fast because people were looking for something different to do”.

So how does a haunted house relate to love?

“The actors and the actresses are monsters, zombies and jilted lovers chasing you around,” said James. “The actors have roses and candy, prom dresses and wedding dresses. It’s a ton of fun!”

The Cutting Edge Haunted House is different from most haunted experiences. Todd calls it “a very intense dark amusement. However, we are very low gore so it’s very family friendly.”

The event will be open this Valentine’s Day weekend on Friday and Saturday nights from 8pm until 10pm. The Cutting Edge Haunted House is located at 1701 East Lancaster in Fort Worth near I-30.

Keir Dullea Birthday May 30

Keir Dullea 2001: A Space Odyssey

Keir Dullea


Keir Dullea (born May 30, 1936) is an American actor best known for the character of astronaut David Bowman, whom he portrayed in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey and in 1984’s 2010: The Year We Make Contact. He has also played roles in films including Bunny Lake is Missing (1965) and Black Christmas (1974).



In 1983, Keir Dullea, with then wife Susie Fuller Dullea, founded the Theater Artists Workshop of Westport.

Rumor had it that Paramount’s planned production of “Dear and Glorious Physician” would star Keir Dullea in the lead role of St. Luke, but the cost of such a movie, coupled with fears that the Biblical “epic” had gone out of style, prompted Paramount to abandon the project in the mid-1960s.

Best known as Dave Bowman in 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), a role he revisited in 2010 (1984).

Both his parents have appeared in his movies. Father Robert Dullea appeared as the aged Marquis De Sade in the final scene of De Sade (1969). This was an add-on scene to the film: Keir didn’t want to go through the old-age makeup, so he suggested they hire his father for the scene. This was done, Robert Dullea went to Germany, did the scene, and according to Keir, enjoyed the whole experience. Mother Margaret Ruttain Dullea appeared in a non-speaking role in David and Lisa (1962). She was going up a flight of stairs in the background of a scene between Keir and Janet Margolin.

Ex-wife Susan Lessans is married to former pro football great Don Meredith.

One of the last people to see Sal Mineo alive. They had just finished rehearsing for a play sometime before Mineo’s murder.

Will be portrayed by Actor Jim Parrack in the upcoming biopic of Sal Mineo titled “Sal”, directed by James Franco. Dullea and Mineo were in rehearsal for the play “P.S. Your Cat is Dead” shortly before Mineo was murdered in 1976.

Barney Burman Grimm NBC makeup

Barney Burman making up a monster from NBC's Grimm


Every episode, Grimm fans are taken in by its many monsters and twists on the fairytales they’ve grown up on. Make-up FX artist Barney Burman is the man who takes the series’ monsters from the script pages and on to the screen.

With his own shop, Proteus Make-up FX, in North Hollywood, Burman comes from an accomplished line of make-up FX artists. His grandfather made masks and props for the original Wolfman and Twilight Zone series. His father, Emmy-winner Thomas R. Burman, worked on Body Snatchers, Star Kid, Powder, Carrie 2 and The X Files, among others.

Burman’s own credits include How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Planet of the Apes, Men in Black 2, Haunted Mansion, and JJ Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek, which earned the make-up FX artist an Academy Award.

“The Star Trek film was definitely a huge challenge,” Burman tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It was the biggest film I had done to date and it was about six months of sleeping four hours a night and just keep going and going and going and it took so much of my focus — just a crazy amount of energy that it took to get that done.”

Grimm’s production schedule is challenging, as well. Burman and his team may have as few as four days to create a monster from scratch. In comparison, Burman says he’d usually ask for at least three weeks for a straight make-up assignment. He must also deal with distance, since the series shoots in Portland.

“It really does vary quite a bit per episode, which is one of the things I really love about it is that it isn’t just kind of doing the same thing,” he says of the many creatures for the series. “It’s creating over and over again each episode. Often we’ve had situations where we’ve had to make a full dead body in five days or we did an episode with some Bigfoot characters and we had four days to get our first one done. I’ve had up to about seven or eight people in my shop in L.A. plus as many as three or four people up in Portland all working at the same time.”

For Friday’s Cinderella-inspired episode titled “Happily Ever Aftermath,” the series tasked Burman with creating the “Murcielago,” a bat-like creature with red eyes, rows of teeth and a death-inducing scream.
