Episode 45: John Carpenter Part 2

Jay Cheel of the Film Junk podcast (also as an established filmmaker himself) returns to talk about horror master John Carpenter, and this happens to be our first sequel episode!  This time we delve into his now widely regarded sci-fi horror classic THE THING as well as the action throwback cult favorite THEY LIVE.  We later expand upon some more of his other films as well. In addition, Jay revisits FRIGHT NIGHT PART II, Patrick talks about CLOUD ATLAS, and this time Jim takes a turn with the Director's Club Lightning Round in which he reviews ten films including a few newer releases out in theaters as well as some horror classics!

In two weeks we will be talking with another returning guest... friend to the show and independent filmmaker Collin Souter will be back to discuss the great Joe Dante!  Please be sure to leave us a voicemail to play on the show as well at 224-366-9528. If you’re a movie blogger/podcaster and would like a guest spot on the show to talk about a filmmaker whose work you admire. Thanks again for listening and be sure to check out our updated upcoming schedule in the sidebar to see which directors we’ll be talking about soon!
