Movie Meltdown - Episode 353

This week we are coming to you "live" from WonderFest where we sit down with director William Malone to discuss his movies Scared to Death, Parasomnia, House on Haunted Hill as well as the notorious Creature! Plus his work on Tales from the Crypt, Freddy's Nightmares and Masters of Horror. And we hear out about growing up as a monster kid, making masks and finding a way to use all that to get into filmmaking. We also talk about his obsession with Robby the Robot, creating the original Michael Myers mask and working on the H. R. Giger project that never happened.

And as we both decide the world is much better off without Klaus Kinski, we also mention... Hemlock Grove, Famous Monsters, Nautilus, Pickman's Model, the Pee Wee Herman bike, an eight ball going up his shirt coming out the neck hole, the sad life of David Spade, Dominique Swain, rebooting It, Vincent Price, give me clay, making foam rubber mask, Dick Smith, moulage, phone books, Bud Westmore, it was a week of hell, William Castle, getting toxic from all the chemicals, the director is kind of the low man on the totem pole, Warner Brothers' movie... done by Warner Brothers. They told us we couldn't afford to shoot on their lot, he's got a van somewhere with candy in the back, Don Rosa, Marie Laurin, horror hosts, you can't be tazed and be attractive, David Warner, Ron Perlman, Jeffrey Combs, phonin' home with E.T., Necromancer, UCLA, Spielberg's company is after me, new Adam Sandler movies, Pennywise, Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3D, Terry Castle, Bill Skarsgård, dude you are sassy wherever you are going, I broke the first rule of filmmaking and being ripped off by James Cameron.

"I had heard that Klaus was - insane... so I wrote this insane... German commander."
