This week, James is joined by Ned Ehbar of Metro News to talk about The Avengers after its Labor Day theatrical re-release, talking about what the summer's biggest movie gets right gets wrong and means in the long run after, yes, Greek food.
Jeff Nelson and Cliff Macmillan from Scream Factory (distributor of films like SLITHER, MISERY, ARMY OF DARKNESS, and hundreds of other special edition DVD & BLU-RAY releases) sit down with Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss the process of special edition releasing.
On a very special episode of THE MOVIE CRYPT: Legendary editor/actor Pasquale Buba has been slicing his way through Hollywood (and a few mall bound undead along the way) and the boys had a chance to sit down with the industry vet for a very funny, very candid talk about his career.
The CREEP 2 gang of filmmakers Mark Duplass (THE ONE I LOVE, THE LEAGUE) Patrick Brice (CREEP, THE OVERNIGHT) and Desiree Akhavan (APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOUR) stopped by the Crypt to discuss their critically acclaimed sequel to the original 2014 film.
Darren Bousman isn’t just a terrific filmmaker (SAW 2-4, REPO!, ABBATTOIR) and an innovator in immersive live theater (TENSION, LUST), he’s also one of the greatest guests we’ve ever had on THE MOVIE CRYPT in the 4+ year history of the program.
Filmmaker Adam Wingard (DEATH NOTE, YOU’RE NEXT, BLAIR WITCH) discusses his career journey with Adam, Joe, and Arwen… from childhood filmmaking aspirations to his 2007 debut POP SKULL to last year’s BLAIR WITCH to his latest film DEATH NOTE and his upcoming blockbuster GODZILLA VS. KING KONG.
On Sunday July 16, 2017 the world lost a master filmmaker, our genre lost one of its most profound voices, and so very many of us lost a dear friend. George A. Romero (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, CREEPSHOW) was so much more than just the “godfather of zombies,” he was the original pioneer of independent cinema and the artist who showed us all the way.
“Wanna play?” Writer/director/producer Don Mancini (the CHILD’S PLAY franchise, TV’s HANNIBAL) visits the ArieScope studio to play dolls with Adam, Joe, and Arwen in this terrific episode that details Don’s career from screenwriter to director to the leader of his very own CULT OF CHUCKY.
