Movie Meltdown - Episode 239

This week we sit down with actor Zach Galligan to talk about his latest starring role in Hatchet 3. Then Zach co-hosts this week's Sofa Theater segment as we discuss William Friedkin's 1977 film "Sorcerer". This often over-looked film in Friedkin's arsenal is filled with amazing sequences and wrought with tension. Plus Zach tells us about actually working with Roy Scheider earlier in his career. 

And in between kids asking ridiculous questions, we also mention... Werner Herzog, expecting to see something spooky, Bug, running into a celebrity in the elevator... sort of, Blue Chips, larger and bigger than the other two, multiple storylines, Meryl Streep, opening against Star Wars, the massive tree, Jade, This is the End, BJ McDonnell, I'm just about to retire, James Franco, having an Oscar-nomination, Tracy Letts, a dog is a tool?, awkward elevator rides, Blue Thunder, aging directors in Hollywood, a "special" call time for me, Larry Bird, Brink's Job, Emma Watson, Prisoner Without a Name, Cell Without a Number, Still of the Night, Killer Joe, nihilistic, gremlin voices, Nick Nolte, Deal of the Century and a guy in an ALF suit.

Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for "Sorcerer", so watch the movie before listening. You have been warned.
