Movie Meltdown - Episode 357

This week Bryan is joined by... well Bryan. Bryan Johnson that is. You may know him as a comic book writer, or a podcaster, or a character on Comic Book Men or maybe just as Steve-Dave. But this week we sit down to talk with Bryan about the strange way he got involved in movies, how he ended up writing and directing his own movie Vulgar, his interest in cryptids and the paranormal and eventually we round things out with his pick for this week's Sofa Theater feature - Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Plus we hear Bryan's take on real world serial killers as well as his interactions with Michael Rooker over the years as well.

And as we both realize we're "special" in our own way, we also mention... people would clam, Jeff Anderson, Session 9, John McNaughton, Brown's Requiem, being a contractor, the best reason to take Criminal Justice classes ever, playing silent foosball, Blue Velvet, still having a code, being a PA, Creepypasta, the room of steel, adding video technology to the mix, Guitar Institute of Technology, you kids stay off the train trestle, ritualistic, RST Video and Quick Stop, Waverly Hills, the end of anonymity, you guys are going to get walkie-talkies, the Jersey Devil, suicide... first day, Devil's Tower, Jeffrey Dahmer, In Search of..., Don't Go in the House, killing people back in the good ole days, escaped psychiatric patient, The Blair Witch Project, the 70's were a time of wonderment and then, as you get older, and you realize this is all bullshit, do you wanna be a getaway driver?, this is too much of a culture shock for some clam boy coming out of Highlands, Slenderman, the ankle bracelet program, doomed from the beginning, when crack hit real big, Dennis Rader, fallen into things, Tom Towles, necrophilia, the Zodiac killer and those creepy staged photos.

"This is our modern day version of a monster. Who doesn't really know right or wrong. And like, does horrible things and just...continues on with their day."
