On episode 9 of Shock Waves, join your hosts Rob Galluzzo (that’d be me!), Elric Kane and Rebekah McKendry as they chat about the latest horrors!
All 3 hosts are currently watching the Netflix original series STRANGER THINGS. Rob and Elric give their thoughts on the controversial new GHOSTBUSTERS remake. Rob talks about JUST DESSERTS: THE MAKING OF CREEPSHOW Blu-Ray release. And Elric reports back on a slew of movies including POLTERGEIST III, LAST HOUSE ON DEAD END STREET, the black and white version of THE MIST, George Romero’s MARTIN and much more.
Then the gang welcomes on producer and former president of FEARnet Peter Block! We get to hear about Block’s humble beginnings in marketing before switching into acquisitions and advocating movies such as HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES, CABIN FEVER and OPEN WATER for Lionsgate. We delve into how SAW came across his desk and became the successful franchise it became, and get teased about the new entry in the SAW franchise being helmed by The Spierig Brothers (UNDEAD, DAYBREAKERS, PREDESTINATION) that’s currently in production!
We talk the rise and fall of the beloved cable network, FEARnet, and much, much more. You may even hear co-hosts Elric and Bekah do a little Bobby Brown rap at one point. Kick back and enjoy this lengthy, educational conversation with one of Hollywood’s greatest producers, embedded below for your convenience.
