Filmmaker André Øvredal (TROLL HUNTER, THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen all the way from Norway to discuss his incredible career journey. From having his college thesis film get distributed (seriously, how often do you hear that?), to directing television commercials, to bringing giant trolls to life with 2010’s Norwegian blockbuster TROLL HUNTER, to working with acting greats Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch in his latest film THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE (out next week!), André’s cinematic path has been one of Hollywood legend. And as you’ll hear in this conversation… he’s only just begun.

Producer Adrienne Biddle (THE MONSTER, MOCKINGBIRD, THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen for a fantastically candid discussion about her career journey. From being a young woman with no idea what exactly she wanted to be when she “grew up,” to attending several different schools before discovering her true calling, to paying her dues by working her way up the ranks as an executive at studios like Focus and Rogue on movies like THE HITCHER and THE UNBORN, and ultimately forming UNBROKEN PICTURES with writer/director Bryan Bertino (THE STRANGERS). Covering such sensitive topics as sexism in Hollywood to the divided reactions across the USA to the recent presidential election (this episode was recorded only 3 days afterwards), these 2+ hours contain one of the most honest and down to earth conversations you’ll hear all year and we’re confident that you’ll absolutely love Adrienne as much as we do.

Filmmaker Emily Hagins (MY SUCKY TEEN ROMANCE, Netflix’s COIN HEIST) sits down with the boys to discuss her journey from 14 year old Austin filmmaker (seriously, she was just 14 when she made PATHOGEN – what did YOU do this week?) to taking the plunge out West into Hollywood and away from the comforts and local support of her home town. One of the best examples you’ll ever hear of someone defying the odds simply by getting out there and doing it, Emily’s down to earth and extremely realistic attitude is sure to inspire you to finish that screenplay, gather up your friends, and start SHOOTING something immediately.
NOTE: Since the recording of this episode Netflix has moved the release date for Emily’s film COIN HEIST to January 6th.
Critic and film producer Scott Weinberg (FOUND FOOTAGE 3D, Nerdist) joins Adam and Joe to discuss his career as an on-line film critic and his first foray into film producing with the phenomenal upcoming horror/comedy FOUND FOOTAGE 3D. From the highs and lows that come along with having an opinion on-line, to surviving the ever changing landscape of writing for websites that can change ownership and directions overnight, to the art of writing critically and honestly vs coming off mean spirited towards a film, to stepping over the line into the role of filmmaker- there’s much to learn in these compelling and fun two hours including a special visit from former Movie Crypt guest Drew McWeeny who discusses the new MUST HEAR podcast that he and Scott do together and one that is sure to become another of your weekly favorites.
Daddy Love Me is back with an all new power-charged episode. We process one of the biggest things to happen in the last week. That’s right. VANDERPUMP RULES IS BACK!!! We deep dive on the new season but don’t worry we talk about what everyone has been talking about as well. That’s right, performance artist Marina Abramovic at the Getty Center!!!! We also talk ALF, Prince, Real Housewives and so much more!!!!********
*******(we mainly talk about this messed up election in this episode)

Adam and Arwen get animated as they talk comic books with the guys behind Source Point Press (HOLLISTON “Friendship Is Tragic”, MONSTROUS): Travis McIntire, Joshua Werner, and Stephen Sharar. Find out what it takes to not just create, write, draw, and edit comic books- but to start your own publishing company from the ground up. From traveling the endless convention circuit getting the word out, to the financial life gamble of putting everything you’ve got into starting your own endeavor, to the challenges of being your own boss, to practically giving away your work for free in the beginning… a life in comics is not as easy as these guys might make it look. Including an extensive conversation about the making of HOLLISTON “Friendship Is Tragic” (available now in comic book stores or AUTOGRAPHED directly from www.ariescope.com) and how timing was everything in getting Adam to allow a newer company to produce an official HOLLISTON story after turning down so many other companies before them… things get real and colorful. Think you have what it takes to make a living doing something you love? Listen, learn, and go for it!

Things get “strange” when Adam, Joe, and Arwen welcome writer C. Robert Cargill to sit down with them at the ArieScope studio and discuss his career from on-line critic (you likely know him as “Massawyrm” from AIN’T IT COOL NEWS) to screenwriter (SINISTER 1 & 2) to novelist (DREAMS AND SHADOWS) to co-writing his latest Hollywood blockbuster Marvel’s DOCTOR STRANGE which is currently playing in theaters everywhere. As The Movie Crypt has proven time and time again, every artist’s journey is different and Cargill’s path is one of the best examples of destiny finding a way despite the difficult odds and the various hurdles. Including stories from his AIN’T IT COOL days (there’s an amazing Kevin Smith story with a happy ending that you’ll love), opportunities that arose from Cargill being prepared at the right place and at the right time, and a discussion about what it’s like crossing the line with grace and respect when moving from one of “them” (a critic) to one of “us” (a filmmaker), Cargill brings the sincerity and honesty that make this program what it is from week to week and you are sure to gain some great insight behind the Hollywood curtain before the ending theme song rolls.

We welcome back to the podcast our main man on the soundboard Ryan P, and he horrify him with our new Garfield imitation we’ve been working on. Let’s just say it involved genitals and lasagna.

We don’t talk Real Housewives in this episode. Now that i’m writing this I don’t know why. BUT we do talk about the KARDASHIANS!! Ryan visits a Kanye West concert and is blown away by the “ART” of it all. Suzy recounts a harrowing incident of a homeless bushman that tried to break into her abode and the ADT employee that didn’t believe her.
We talk about Halloween and how there are no good Halloween parties anymore or at least we aren’t getting invited to them. We recount past Halloween glories and then delve into the world of GHOSTSSSS.
We talk about what scares the beejesus out of us. Suzy is scared of burglars/ghosts and Ryan is scared of serial killers/everything. Thanks for listening! Tell a friend unless you don’t have any!
Also, Suzy is still dying of an unspecified illness according to WebMD.

After first being introduced to the world in the 2005 season of PROJECT GREENLIGHT and after directing the most successful film that the series has produced to date (FEAST), John Gulager has gone on to consistently work as a director, cinematographer, and actor. From directing the two FEAST sequels in 2008 and 2009… to helming 2012’s off-the-wall PIRANHA 3DD… and to the “now what?” moments that every filmmaker faces in between… Gulager has become one of the most unique cinematic voices to watch as there truly is no one else quite like him. Listen as John shares what it was like directing a feature film under the harrowing microscope of reality show cameras, some of the hurdles he’s had to face in the years that followed (including a phone call informing him that the aspect ratio of the film he was about to shoot had been drastically changed… which he received in his car on his way to the first day of shooting it), why the concept of trying to make films in as few days and with as minuscule a budget as possible is not “cinema”, and why it is almost impossible to feel like a filmmaker’s mission has ever been truly conquered. Your “Viewer Mail” is answered, there is a 5-minute movie that almost stars Steve McQueen before being overtaken by The Creature From The Black Lagoon, and the boys reveal who they FINALLY landed as the incredibly special guest for their upcoming Christmas Special. (And yes, they are serious.) Things get weird… and you don’t want to miss it.
Follow everyone on Twitter: @voighthead (Gulager), @Adam_Fn_Green (Green), @TheJoeLynch (Lynch), and @Arwen_Fn_Green (Arwen). And be sure to follow @Movie Crypt for guest announcements and your chance to tweet a question in for “Viewer Mail.”

After almost 3 straight years of doing The Movie Crypt podcast every single week without fail… after so very many artists have come on this podcast and spoken so candidly about their struggles with substance abuse and addiction… after reading countless letters, postings, and other messages from members of our audience about how much the guests who have shared their addiction and recovery stories have personally helped them cope with their own daily struggles… and for a program that prides itself on its honest discussions about the various trials and tribulations of surviving within the entertainment industry… we would be remiss to not at least attempt to tackle the extremely difficult and incredibly important subject of addiction. Though the various artists who have come on the show and bravely opened up about their real-life problems with drugs have thankfully all told stories that included recovery and success… unfortunately one of our previous guests (who also happened to be a huge part of Adam and Joe’s HOLLISTON family, a true best friend, and a beloved music icon adored by millions worldwide) is no longer here with us. Just moments after the tragedy of Dave Brockie’s death first hit the press…. Adam was inundated with media requests to issue a statement as HOLLISTON’s creator, writer, and show-runner. He continually and defiantly defended any suggestions that drugs could have potentially been a factor in his dear friend’s death. There was absolutely no possible way. A few weeks later, Dave’s toxicology report came back from the coroner’s office.
Though it will soon be two years since Dave passed away, it has only been within the past few weeks that Adam and Joe have even been able to speak the words out loud that Dave’s toxicology report came back positive for heroin. In their efforts to come to terms with their loss, in their own personal searches to better understand substance abuse and addiction, and in response to the overwhelming amount of extremely passionate fan letters and comments… it is finally time to face the issue head-on and dedicate an entire episode to a struggle that is just not publicly discussed often enough. A struggle that too many keep private out of fear of judgment. A struggle that too many suffer through alone simply because they either don’t know how to get help, because they don’t believe they can be helped, or because they are too scared of the perceived consequences that might come with admitting that they need help. A struggle that is too often not brought to light until it is sadly too late.
Musician/Counselor Terry Kirkman began his career as a songwriter and performer best known for his work with THE ASSOCIATION (“Cherish” and “Along Comes Mary”). After decades of substance abuse, Terry found himself at a crossroads of either committing suicide or reaching out for help… and thankfully he found the strength to choose the latter. He has been sober for exactly 31 years and 1 month on the very night of this recording. Terry has dedicated his life to helping others in their struggles with addiction and through his work with programs like A.I.R. Support (Artists In Recovery) and as the clinical director of M.A.P. (Musicians Assistance Program) he has helped countless other people find hope, strength, and change for a better way of living. As an added bonus, Terry’s wife Heidi Kirkman also joins in on the conversation about halfway through the episode. 28 years sober herself, Heidi is a counselor specializing in marriage, family therapy, life transitions, relationships, and addiction. Whether you are an addict yourself, whether you know of an addict in your life, or whether you merely want to try and better understand addiction so that you can be prepared… this just may be the most important episode of The Movie Crypt that Adam and Joe ever record as someone in our world-wide audience is going to be saved by listening to these powerful, emotional, and difficult two hours. Adam and Joe can’t possibly thank Terry and Heidi Kirkman enough for answering their call for help and for taking the time to donate their expertise and share their own experiences with addiction and recovery. Nor can they thank the overwhelming amount of fans who wrote in to either share their own personal stories or ask their own questions about this subject that is literally a matter of life or death.
There was absolutely no way to cover every aspect of substance abuse and recovery or to possibly answer every question about addiction within these 2 hours. But we hope that if nothing else this addiction special leaves you with the power of hope. With the understanding that recovery is possible for all. And with the knowledge that help is not far away no matter who you are or where you live. All you have to do is reach out your hand and another hand (or several hands) will be there to accept, receive, and assist you. Terry Kirkman can be found on Facebook should you wish to connect with him there. PLEASE… if you are in need of help, if you are struggling with substance abuse of any kind, if you know someone who needs help, if you are living your life inside a dark shadow of fear and desperation… know that you are not alone. Don’t wait another day. Contact any of the various support groups in your immediate area today. Help is truly waiting for you.
In loving memory of David Murray Brockie (August 30, 1963 – March 23, 2014). We miss your laughter.
