Essential listening for horror fans!
No one's better at interviewing horror directors than Mick, and that's because he's one of them! I loved Post Mortem as a video show on FEARnet, and now as a podcast, it's even better. Rob Zombie episode was a stellar start. The political horror debate with Dante and Landis was a great discussion. Basically, as a horror fan, it's essential listening. Highly recommended.
Essential listening from a Master of Horror
Mick Garris seems to know everyone in horror movies. Despite his calm & gentle demeanor, his passion for horror filmmaking comes through in every conversation. Great stuff!
What a hidden gem this podcast is. If you're a horror fan, this podcast is a must listen.
