A Slice of Fried Gold
About This Show
A SLICE OF FRIED GOLD is just what the world needs: another damn movie podcast. This one is hosted by a couple of guys from South Carolina and covers a wide range of films, from cult classics to the latest blockbusters. With frequent guests and recurring features such as "My Favorite Movie" and "Movie Redemption."
Each episode focuses on a single film and goes into a conversation -- sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, sometimes downright stupid -- about that film and any other digressions that it might inspire. New episodes releases weekly!

Ep. 22 - My Favorite (Horror) Movie: John Carpenter's THE THING [with Will Benton]
3 days ago
My Favorite (Horror) Movie Month continues with returning guest Will Benton and his pick, John Carpenter's 1982 classic of alien terror, THE THING.
This week, we start the conversation (which will continue next week) as to what Carpenter's greatest film is. We discuss the film's history and its transformation from box office and critical flop to revered horror classic. We talk about John Carpenter's mastery of tension and how Rob Bottin's effects work helped to turn this into the modern day masterpiece that it is.
