VHS LIFE Ep. 12 "Treats From Press Play"
4 days ago
Our journey to Halloween continues, this episode begins with the guys discussing their “homework”. First up is Basket Case. Did John like it, are his comparisons to CHUD warranted? Male bush and more are discussed. Then, Michael J gives his thoughts on Demons and his thoughts are surprising to John. They wonder why an Italian language track wasn’t included, as a result some of the dubbing seems out of place, which, in Michael J’s opinion makes it humorous at times. Is Demons the Italian equivalent of Evil Dead? We debate whether or not Mike Flannigan can save Ouija and more! Writer/Producer Jimmy George joins us to discuss in depth the challenges of micro-budget film production and proves that it can be done and be very rewarding. Fans of WNUF: HALLOWEEN SPECIAL and indie film fans will get a lot of insight and inspiration from this discussion. We also get into his newly released comic book series, BURIAL PLOTS and more! The treats keep coming at Press Play as Actor/Producer/Composer Lito Velasco joins us to discuss his numerous projects, most recently, the horror film ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE. We explore his inspirations, acting methodology, and more. Be warned, our discussion of ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE is SPOILER HEAVY and we recommend viewing the film before listening to this segment of the show. We also talk with Lito about his thoughts on PHANTASM: RAVAGER, is it the proper sendoff that phans have been clamoring for? All that and more on this jam packed episode that you can’t miss! So rent smart and remember, “Be Kind…Rewind”.
