THE NIGHT CREW Episode 13 - Season's End With Art Hindle And Steven Quale

Well, here we are at the end of the long road we call “Season 1” of THE NIGHT CREW. It’s been a wild ride. What started out as a simple desire to share a bit of the knowledge-base some of our very talented friends had… has now blossomed to the exciting project you are hopefully now listening to on a regular basis.

It’s been a steep learning curve, but… with the help of our friends and the support of our listeners, we’ve managed to pull together a pretty interesting series of pod casts, if I do say so myself. None of us ever really thought we’d be actually subjecting an audience to our voices, but here we are. And people seem to be responding in a very kind way. Yes, there have been some technical glitches along the way, but we’re working them out and we appreciate both your patience and indulgence.

With this, Episode 13, we have some regular features such as Andrew Mack’s Twitch News of the Week and Sean and my What We’ve Been Watching, but we also see our first column, Phillip Nutman’s Wild Western Movies Primer, come to its conclusion with a group discussion on the similarities shared between the Western and the Japanese Chambara film. Also, along for this ride, we have Chris Alexander and his More MORE Than A Minute to round things out.

But we also have brought in some terrific celebrity interviews such as the great Art Hindle (THE BROOD, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS) and director Stephen Quayle (FINAL DESTINATION 5). Both men share a bit of their knowledge and experience and we are grateful for their doing so.




Looking forward, we have a lot of new things planned for the pod cast. New columns, New features. A new web site. A new release schedule. It’s gonna be great!

So, as we gather up some more cool segments and get our web site up and running, we’re taking a short hiatus, but we’ll be back in a week or two. Please keep your eyes on this blog and on our FaceBook page. In the interim, please go back and listen to any of the episodes you might have missed. There’s crammed with info and some very cool interviews.

And… they have personality!

So thanks for supporting us and keep watching the skies… or your web browser… for more of…

THE NIGHT CREW Episode 12 - Michael Biehn: Apocalyptic Bad Ass

Good things are worth waiting for, and in this unexpectedly delayed episode of The Night Crew (apologies listeners! no worries though, we aint goin' nowhere!) we finally have the opportunity to introduce new staffer Jessica Dwyer. If you are a horror geek, her name indeed may already be familiar to you. She is a writer over at Horror Hound magazine, where she's been a scribe since the second issue. She knows her stuff, trust in that, and we are really happy to have her. Rocking. Jessica and I talk about the work of 70's terror television maverick Dan Curtis, including the recently announced remakes of his hallowed horrors, and we examine a couple of titles in particular, his adaption of Dracula, and his often overlooked, and incredibly creepy The Norliss Tapes. Thom comes to the party with that uber bad ass, actor Michael Biehn. Yep. John Connor's Dad beotches! he's in the house to talk about his new post-apocalyptic trip in director Xavier Gens' The Divide, which is looking mighty good if you ask me.




Of course we have Andrew Mack with a still timely dose of Twitch News Of The Week, Philip Nutman, aka The World's Most Unlikely Cowboy, kicks up his spurs once again, talking the new micro-budget western, The Scarlett Worm. More you ask? Well, last but not least, our own Toronto treasure, Fangoria edotir-in-chief Chris Alexander crosses his fingers for Rise Of the Planet Of The Apes to hold true to the good word on the street.

It's mean! It's lean! It's HELLA late! It's episode 12 of The Night Crew!

THE NIGHT CREW Episode 11 - It's A Home Invasion Party!

This week, The Crew come bursting through your doors brandishing coverage from NYC contributor Heather Buckley, who speaks with KIDNAPPED director Miguel Ángel Vivas, currently racking up festival awards for his brutal and controversial thriller.


Thom and I also break down two other out-of-the-box home invasion films of yesteryear, BECAUSE OF THE CATS from 1973, and the John Huston classic from 1948, KEY LARGO. We are also joined by author Lorelie Shannon, who discusses her new book POSSUM KINGDOM with us.


Of course the usual suspects of Toronto based bad-ass Andrew Mack with his Twitch News, author Philip Nutman with his Wild Western Films Primer, and FANGORIA editor-in-chief Chris Alexander, all phone home with their respective and cherished contributions. Plus, the always present battery of trailers, tunes, and buffoonery. It's crack for insomniac geeks, that show from the fiery depths below...The Night Crew.

THE NIGHT CREW Episode 10" - The Not Safe For Work Special

General debauchery and lecherous behavior permeates the atmosphere of The Night Crew this episode like a musty and musky Saturday night at Plato's Retreat. Sean and Thom swing hard this episode, talking cinema in general with both Lee The G, and Andrew "Sir Mack" The Mack. Lee also discusses his new play, The King Of Bangor, a reality blurring take on the life of Stephen King, now running in Melbourne, AU, and the Mack brings another heapin' helpin' of hotness courtesy of the Twitch news Of the Week. Of course, that filthy little Brit known as "Uncle" Phil Nutman shows up, this week to talk about Spaghetti Western legend, Sergio Corbucci and his output of gritty, grimy, sweaty dirt operas, plus, the usual orgy pit of trailers, music, and smack talk writhes away It's hot to trot and freer than sex with a hippy, it's episode 10" of -

THE NIGHT CREW Episode 9 - Writer/Director Simon Rumley

Yep. Almost into double digits here on the Night Crew podcast. Next week marks 10 squared. 11 really, if you count episode 0 at the beginning of all...er...this! Next week won't only mark episode 10, the first in what will hopefully be many "deca's" we mark off, it will also signal a little bit of a step up, in the guise of a button fixed to the face of the web page of the very hallowed and venerable FANGORIA magazine. Hopefully that will help kick numbers up a notch. Make no mistake, we want you to please pass this show onto your friends. Soon enough you'll see our ugly mugs in Fangoria too, so neener neener, have fun with that. We are going to start kicking at the industry and fandom alike, with t-shirts and ad's and all that hoo hah rock band like hype. Because that's what this is, more than anything, it's a band of freaks who live to immerse themselves in art of all forms. Our notoriety is your eyeball damage. But! What we take away from you ever being able to look upon any other fleshy thing again, hopefully we give back to you tenfold, with the golden graces of the collective wit and knowledge that is the Night Crew, as they flow from computer speaker to human eardrum?

No?

Eh. Ok. Fair enough I suppose.

Anyway, harumph, moving on...We are very happy to have our regular Twitch contributor Andrew Mack  back from a short hiatus, as well as yet another Twitchey cohort, our Man From Hong Kong, James Marsh, reporting from...well...HONG KONG! The two clowns we call Philip Nutman and Chris Alexander, aka The World's Most Unlikely Cowboy and Boss respectively, chime in with their weekly contributions on westerns and whatever weird shit happens to surface.
We are also extremely happy to finally have on the writer/director of one of the absolutely most amazing films of 2010, the caustic, unflinching, and extremely mature RED, WHITE & BLUE, mister Simon Rumley. We also talk about Simon's earlier work, including another favorite of mine, THE LIVING AND THE DEAD. Mr. Rumley has a very true eye for character, and even when plumbing the absolute lowest depths of the human condition, he still manages to find that place where the truth rests. A serious talent, and a pleasure to sit with for the show.



Also, it's Harryhausen's birthday today (June 29, 2011) The master is 91. RESPECT IT!

Plus, the usual mish mash of weird music, trailers, and in a bid to nab yet another demographic, I air my dirty love laundry. So click in, because we be keepin' it real ma! On The Night Crew.

THE NIGHT CREW Episode 8 - The Del Valle That Ate Hollywood!!!

Yep. Sean "The Butcher" here, and we had to have our pal David Del Valle back for a quick encore. We had so much fun talking to this wonderful author, journalist, and historian of all things cinematic a couple episodes back that we had to have him on again, and right quick. Mr. Del Valle updates us on the Pricentennial, a St. Louis event in honor of what would have been the venerable thespian's 100'th birthday, which he hosted along with Miss Victoria Price. Our chat touches on some tender subjects, but we hope you listener's understand how truly we all love Mr. Price. Not only for his contributions to the world of stage and cinema, but also to the arts as a whole. An altruist and an absolute gentleman, we are honored to have someone who knew him well take the time to sit with us, and tell us about a Master we no longer have the dream of meeting someday.

We are also very excited to finally introduce to you our Melbourne, Australia contributor Lee Gambin. Lee is a regular contributor to FANGORIA Magazine, and runs the Sissies And Sluts Theater group, a goofy, gory, and dangerously smart bunch of people running amok on the stage floors of Melbourne. A creative dynamo, we are super proud to call Lee one of The Night Crew, and sincerely look forward to giving him a forum in which to rant from his mouth to your lucky ears.
Be afraid.
Be very, very afraid.
We talk with lee about his background, and then get into a double feature slam, in which this time around we discuss two very renowned rock musicals. THE PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE from 1975, and REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA from 2008. We are bound to piss some people off, and make some people laugh. Hearts and a hornets nest with this one folks.

Also, as usual, we also have author Philip Nutman kicking up dirt with his Wild Wild Westerns Primer column, this week going back to the original version of TRUE GRIT featuring The Duke. Also, FANGORIA editor-in-chif Chris Alexander treads dangerous waters this week with his Movie-MORE-Than-A-Minute, as he waxes nostalgic about that aquatic atrocity from '83, JAWS 3-D!!! As if that wasn't enough to make a monkey masturbate, Thom and I discuss what we've been watching over the past week or so, commenting on J.J. Abrams' SUPER 8, the documentary INSIDE JOB, Matthew Vaughn's triumphant X-MEN FIRST CLASS, bad-ass Jason Statham in THE MECHANIC, and others. Sadly, an idiot lineman and a little bit of fate intervened, and we will not be having the TWITCH News Of The Week. Andrew mack's cable line was cut through by an overzealous phone company worker, and TWITCH main man Todd Brown was knocked out of pinch hitting due to the stormy temper of Mother Nature. So, even though they are indeed missed, TWITCH and Andrew Mack will return next week.

So sally forth, and enjoy episode 8...of THE NIGHT CREW!
