In my star-filled career I've worked with Mike Myers, Lindsay Lohan and Mark Summers, but none of them could have prepared me for meeting this legendary filmmaker. George Romero is a great guy. He says "man" a lot (though none of those made it into the edited interview.) He's a class act!
Of all the fabeled movies that never got made, Biker Heaven (the unmade Easy Rider sequel) is the one I'd most like to see.
Though it's probably best left as an unmade film.
Hollywood must hate New York, because it's always getting destroyed in the movies.
We had to do lots of takes because I couldn't stop laughing at Mike Birch's ad-libbed lyrics in the American Idol song.
This Alien Vs. Predator inspired episode owes a lot of thanks to Professor Kevin Heffern at Southern Methodist University. I called him up to ask for help and he said, "I was just talking about franchise cross-overs!" He truly is a gentleman and a scholar.
Also Mark Douglas plays Sportscaster Dov McCormack. The holiday party co-workers are Bricken Sparacino, Mike Birch, Paul Herbig, Brianna Jacobson, Jonny Fido and Eric Hendricks.
Richard Matheson is one of my favorite authors. For all the great science-fiction and horror he's written, I think his best book is a World War II novel title The Beardless Warriors. My friend Larry summed it up best that Matheson is a "deceptively simple" writer.
None of that analysis appears in this episode, but we do cover his cult-movie work.
Note: you can alseo watch the YouTube version which is 20 seconds longer.
Here's a list of films that are not on Netflix. When I called the people were really helpful and cool.
Also, I've since learned that Rock & Rule and Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park are not on Netflix.
We spent a long night making this one, and I thought we'd win some web-award for making it.
Turns out no one cared about this movie. On the opening week it was played in one theater in all of New York City.
AMC hated this episode and removed it from the website shortly after it posted. Maybe it's because there aren't any FACTS. Or maybe it's because we talk about layoffs while AMC was facing actual layoffs. Some people like this episode best of all.
That's Mickey Ryan as the HR guy.
