Death Needs Humor Too: An Interview with Robert “Corpsy” Rhine of Girls and Corpses Magazine

“It’s the contrast, it’s the ying and the yang, it’s beauty and the beast; we contrast these two things.”
— Robert “Corpsy” Rhine on his magazine, Girls and Corpses (interview extract)

Robert Steven Rhine, aka. “Corpsy,” is one of those guys you’d love to get a pint with - a great conversationalist, endlessly entertaining and never without a relevant anecdote. The founder (and deaditor-in-chief) of Girls and Corpses magazine, he has a background in acting as well as writing, and (in you haven’t noticed already) an attraction to all things gory and macabre.

Executive producer of Parasites and The Chair (both currently in post-production), he’s also involved with the upcoming Rob Zombie movie, 31, which will be premiering in the near future. We discuss a whole host of topics with Corpsy, including the aforementioned film projects, his writing career, as well as his recent magazine photo-shoot with actor Danny Trejo and model Dani Divine (see the latest edition of Girls and Corpses.). Furthermore, we touch on his acting career (yes, this man does it all!), and question him on what it was like re-enacting Rob Sterling’s character for the Disney ride, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

We also delve a little into Corpsy’s childhood, and discover how his dark interests and humour may have come about – apparently life-threatening head trauma might have something to do with it…you’ll have to listen to find out! The fun doesn’t stop there though, for we also explore some of Corpsy’s paranormal experiences, including a rather ominous photo snapped during a photo-shoot for Girls and Corpses with Sheri Moon Zombie and Rob Zombie at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
