INTERVIEW: Robot Monster at 70

If you know one thing about 1953's ROBOT MONSTER, you know that its alien villain has the body of a gorilla with a diving helmet on his head. Shot in four days for $16,000, Robot Monster may be bad, but it's also impossible to dislike. For its 70th anniversary, this sci-fi semi-classic has received a much-needed restoration from the 3D Film Archive. To mark the occasion, Will Sloan spoke to Bob Furmanek (president and founder of the Archive), as well as Robot Monster's last surviving cast member, Gregory Moffett.

INTERVIEW: Joyce Meadows on The Brain from Planet Arous (1957)

In the beloved cult classic The Brain from Planet Arous (1957), an evil brain from outer space inhabits the body of an atomic scientist to plot world domination. Of course, the sinister brain is also very interested in the love interest, played by Joyce Meadows. Sixty-five years after it was made, The Brain from Planet Arous is now available on a beautiful Blu-Ray from The Film Detective, with Meadows (now 89) participating in the extras. In this special interview episode, Will speaks to Joyce Meadows about the craft she brought to low-budget 1950s cinema, her films with William Castle and Edward L. Cahn, and the reason she stepped away from Hollywood. Get The Brain from Planet Arous on Blu-Ray - https://www.thefilmdetective.com/arous Visit Joyce Meadows’ website - http://joycemeadows.net/

INTERVIEW: Riding the Sleazoid Express with Bill Landis

From 1980 to 1985, the underground zine “Sleazoid Express” became one of the first publications to seriously cover grindhouse movies, and a valuable primary document about life on New York’s 42nd Street. Its editor and writer, the late Bill Landis, was the Hunter S. Thompson of film criticism… and a man who left a trail of wreckage in his wake. In this special bonus episode, Will talks to Preston Fassel, author of the new biography “Landis: The Story of a Real Man on 42nd Street,” about the checkered life and lasting legacy of Times Square’s greatest film critic.

INTERVIEW: Steve Wang Won't Sleep Until The Last Punch Is Thrown

Steve Wang is a legendary special effects artist who worked on PREDATOR, HELLBOY, GREMLINS 2 and dozens of other stone-cold classics. He's also a great director. No one in North America has done a better job of marrying complex practical special effects and high octane Hong Kong-style action than Steve Wang in films like KUNG FU RASCALS, GUYVER: DARK HERO and DRIVE (1997). I enjoyed speaking to Steve about his directorial career, and topics under discussion include his time as the director (briefly) of POWER RANGERS: THE MOVIE, an unmade Steven Seagal film, and a reboot of FIST OF THE NORTH STAR that was meant to star Mark Dacascos! *** For an interview more centred around Steve Wang's make-up career, check out his great appearance on THE DARK SOCIETY PODCAST: https://soundcloud.com/darkartsociety/steve-wang-ep-155.

#256 - Why Has History Forgotten The Passions of Edmond Gréville?

Writer/Director Edmond Greville was one of the seventh arts' first cinephiles turned filmmakers. He worked from 1931 to 1963 and his pictures are filled with imagination, energetic style and boundary-pushing experimentation, but his filmography has fallen through the cracks in the way the work of Edgar G. Ulmer and Joseph H. Lewis never have. Why is that? And how can things change? We focus on Gréville's legacy as well as three of his films: NOOSE, WHIRLPOOL and THE ACCIDENT. For more information on the availability of his films, Justin has put together a handy guide available here: https://filmtrap.com/a-guide-to-the-films-of-edmond-greville/ Check out Justin's other podcast THE BAY STREET VIDEO PODCAST (@thebaystreetvideopodcast) and NO SUCH THING AS A BAD MOVIE (@nosuchthingasabadmovie) as well as Will's other podcast MICHAEL AND US (@michael-and-us) Subscribe, Review and Rate Us on Apple Podcasts: podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-…ub/id1067435576 Follow the Podcast: twitter.com/ImprtCinemaClub Follow Will: twitter.com/WillSloanESQ Follow Justin: twitter.com/DeclouxJ

INTERVIEW: An Englishwoman's Vacation Through The World Of Godfrey Ho

What is it like to act in a Godfrey Ho film?* The cut-n-paste films of Godfrey Ho, Tomas Tang and Joseph Lai are filled with footage of caucasian actors spouting inane dialogue, often dressed as ninjas, in an attempt to fool audiences into thinking they were watching an American production. Some actors like Bruce Baron appeared multiple times, others like Richard Harrison found themselves in dozens of pictures against their will, and then there are some faces that came and went without even being credited. Such is the case with Trudy Calder. A few days ago, Twitter user and Important Cinema Club member Skinslip tweeted about her journey exploring the Gold Ninja Video Blu-ray set NINJA VORTEX. Skinslip mentioned watching CROCODILE FURY and Trudy revealed in a reply to that tweet that she was one of the actors in the film: She played the blonde-haired sorceress who commands an army of hopping vampires, attacks the hero with a metal razor hand, and has a monster burst out of her chest! I reached out to Trudy and asked if she’d be willing to be interviewed about her experiences working on CROCODILE FURY and she graciously took the time to answer my questions. Enjoy! Watch CROCODILE FURY online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8U2VB5sX_U For more information on the world of Godfrey Ho check out an episode we did on the subject: https://soundcloud.com/the-important-cinema-club/122-ninja-ninja-godfrey-ho-ninja *I am aware that CROCODILE FURY is credited to Godfrey Ho, but he probably had nothing to do with it!

INTERVIEW: Sam Irvin Has Directed A Whole Lot of Christmas Movies

After doing an episode on Hallmark Christmas Movies I had a lot of questions on my mind, so I was really excited to talk to one of the experts on the Christmas directing scene: Sam Irvin. Sam has worked as Brian De Palma's assistant, made films for Full Moon, and has had a prolific career as director of TV Movies of all sorts - and that includes 8 Christmas movies! He was nice enough to have a chat with me about his experiences with gruelling schedules, shooting a Gay Christmas Movie (that can pass as straight), and the limits of Christmas cheer. Don't forget to check out all of Sam's recent work below!

INTERVIEW: The Cinematic Passions of Fred Olen Ray

When you think of cinephile director’s, the names that usually come to mind are Joe Dante, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino...but what about Fred Olen Ray? Ray is the filmmaker behind such video store classics as EVIL TOONS, HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS, and ARMED RESPONSE, but he’s also a massive film fan. He wrote a book called THE NEW POVERTY ROW about independent distributors, casts forgotten stars, like Bowery Boy actor Huntz Hall, in his projects, and he also runs a DVD distribution company RETRO MEDIA where he’s released films like PLANET OF THE DINOSAURS, THE ALIEN FACTOR and THE BEAST FROM HAUNTED CAVE with brand new special features. Fred was nice enough to take some time to have a chat with me about his film fandom and directorial career, so I hope you enjoy the discussion that jumps right into his answer to my question “How do you cast your pictures?” RETROMEDIA'S FACEBOOK PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/The-Official-Fred-Olen-Ray-Page-113544948689048/ THE BET OF FROM THE JACK-O COMMENTARY TRACK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1rirOuQsDg

INTERVIEW - Mickey Reece Will Die If He Stops Making Films

Over the last eleven years, Writer/Director Mickey Reece has made 30 feature films that have run the genre gamut of psychodramas, stylish comedies, bizarro westerns, and imaginative kids films, Once each film would be completed, he would play it once in Oklahoma City, put it on the shelf, and move on to the next one. The rest of the world has never seen his work.  Until now.  In anticipation of his upcoming comedy ARROWS OF OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE premiering at the Chattanooga Film Festival, which is only the second time one of Reece's films will be featured at a major festival, Justin sits down with Mickey to talk creative drive, inspiration and how one guy can make so much stuff without throwing in the towel. Check out a short doc on Mickey Reece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jdr7JmODvD4 For the trailers of the films we discuss, check out Mickey's Youtube Page: at:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEgM14UsWZbYJnymNJF4Ztg
