Movie Meltdown - Episode 192
Sure the zombie apocalypse is upon us... but it's still business as usual here at "Movie Meltdown"! Recorded "live" from the middle of the 8th Annual "Louisville Zombie Attack", we wander the streets with droves of the undead and somehow still manage to deliver our usual movie geek banter.
This event was one of the first of it's kind and has since become one of the largest gatherings of zombies in the country. Last year alone they unleashed between 8000 - 9000 zombies on the city! And this year the tradition continues as we talk to the creators of the event and find out a little more about the crazy preparation and logistics involved in conducting an event this big (and potentially out of control)! Plus movie geeks that we are, we ask people 'the question of the episode', that is described as not just hard but... just plain mean!!
And as we hang out not too far from the SWAT team outside of the Dairy Queen, we also address... David Cronenberg, continually slamming US Magazine, favorite movies of the year, zombies riding the bus, Jeremy Northup, and also let's not forget... Frank Stallone, Ridley Scott, mixed martial arts, Cube, Tony Scott, Big Fan, Cosmopolis, Ruby Sparks, the warthogs??, explode-nentially, police... traffic... waste management... emergency services, so heavy-handed, children zombies, Jason Yee, Splice, Alan Parker, Zoe Kazan, someone almost ruined one of my favorite silent movies, Prometheus, reuse recycle... your caskets, Sasha Grey, Sean Penn, we're this cool Hollywood couple, Lucy Liu, zombie or drunk?, Birdemic: Shock and Terror, making it safe and fun for everybody, the life of the zombie in the tutu and a cowboy hat, Vincenzo Natali, Rumble Fish, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Girl from the Naked Eye, Man on Fire, Paul Dano, when the zombies tried to turn over the bus, Mickey Rourke, convincing everyone you are the beautiful girl, squeezing tears out of my eyes, millions of dollars in insurance, Dominique Swain, Darren Aronofsky and coffin go karts!
"There's more and more zombies just crowding around us... and it's getting darker and darker."
