Episode 12: Michael St.Michaels


While his roots are in the stage and hairdressing, Michael St. Michaels (Michael Rappaport) has carved a cinematic niche in fringe classics like THE VIDEO DEAD (1987), and most notably, THE GREASY STRANGLER (2016). It was GREASY that brought Michael to the masses as Big Ronnie, an uncompromising oily food-obsessed dad by day, disco dancing murderous monster by night. And then there's the "big mouses's head" and frequent trips to the car wash. It is an unforgettable turn in one of the most bizarre, wonderfully original films in recent history, and Michael is the heart of it all. We touch on GREASY, what led him to hairdressing (a certification he only recently let lapse), the ups and downs of getting by in the business, and how life can be turned around in your 70s.

In addition, in the wake of the trailers for PET SEMATARY and CHILD'S PLAY dropping, I dig into discussion on remakes and reboots.

Episode 10: Bryan Woods & Scott Beck


Filmmakers Bryan Woods and Scott Beck are Iowa natives and two of the hottest names in cinema today. They most recently wrote and produced A QUIET PLACE, which was released to critical acclaim and has grossed over $340 million worldwide. A QUIET PLACE was named as a Top Ten Film of 2018 by the American Film Institute and the National Board of Review. Beck & Woods' script earned them nominations with the Writers Guild and the Critics Choice Awards (which they just won for best horror/scifi picture), and was named one of the year's ten best scripts by The Tracking Board Hit List. The duo is currently in post-production on the thriller HAUNT, which they wrote and directed for producer Eli Roth, Sierra/Affinity, Broken Road Productions, and Nickel City Pictures. They are also writing THE BOOGEYMAN for 20th Century Fox and 21 Laps, based on Stephen King's iconic short story of the same name.

We discuss their shared travels in cinema, how they have made their way in the business with humility, the art of collaboration, and they share the stories behind A QUIET PLACE and what predated that monstrous hit. A great, inspiring conversation with good friends.
