Movie Meltdown - Episode 387
This week our host is reunited
with Bryan Johnson from the podcast Tell 'Em
Steve-Dave! as well as the AMC series Comic Book Men.
Join us as we discuss recent and not-so-recent movie viewings,
meeting people who used to have very interesting jobs in the
business and eventually we round things out with this week's
Sofa Theater feature the 1979 horror movie
Don't Go in the House. Which just
happened to be filmed right around the corner from where Bryan grew
up. Memories and body burns ensue.
And as a couple of old guys reminisce about the way the world used to be back in the day, we also bring up... Ralph Macchio, Katrina Law, John Wick, when it came out on video, Jacques Cousteau, my son's on TV, Michael Rooker, a whole ensemble, shoveling stuff into a furnace, if you were on TV... it was a major major deal, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, taking a ferry to Ellis Island, a phone booth, Dan Grimaldi, hanging out at The Web, you are either from a different country or you're crazy, the florist in Atlantic Highlands, I'm a better assassin then he is, raking his arms back and forth, he builds a room, it wakes my dad up, Aqua Net, Richard Fire, if your mom yelled at you in the 70's... you're going to hear whispering voices, that was it... that was my life man, just pour some bleach in his eyes, after someone does you a favor you're like... I'm going to inconvenience you further, we're a persecuted group, the entire front counter was nothing but handguns and what if Jimmy Fallon and Richard Ramirez had a baby?
Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for Joseph Ellison's Don't Go in the House. So go watch the movie before you listen... you have been warned!
"...the next best thing was seeing things on TV that... you knew were around you. Because I didn't know anyone on TV - but I knew where that house was!"
