Movie Meltdown - Episode 184
This week we are “live” at Fright Night Film Fest / FandomFest (and Christine's bedroom), as we sit down with actress, writer, director Christine Elise McCarthy and talk about her career and her short film Bathing and the Single Girl. She has an amazing list of credits, from Child’s Play 2 to Abel Ferrara’s Body Snatchers. From starring on Beverly Hills 90210 and ER to China Beach and In the Heat of the Night. Christine has worked on some terrific projects over the years, and we talk about her work as well as the craziness of being in the public eye. Plus Director Miles Miller also joins us to tell us about his short film Pillow. And then everyone sticks around as we head into this week's Sofa Theater feature - the infamous Man Bites Dog.
