The Movie Crypt

Jun 18, 2018

Screenwriter Simon Barrett (THE GUEST, YOU’RE NEXT, BLAIR WITCH) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen for an incredibly humble and honest episode that details his long journey from aspiring filmmaker to screenwriter to one of today’s most exciting cinematic voices.  From his first produced screenplay DEAD BIRDS and all he learned on that production… to joining forces with director Adam Wingard and making something out of nothing with A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE… to changing their own game with the double punch of YOU’RE NEXT and THE GUEST… to long waits, regime changes, and sheer bad luck… to the incredible journey through the Burkittsville forest with BLAIR WITCH… this is one hell of a conversation for your ears!  Dr. Arwen prescribes her “Hollywood Therapy,” our Patreon supporters get answers to their “Viewer Mail” questions, and Simon drops a bomb on Adam and Joe with his parting words.

IMPORTANT: As mentioned at the end of this episode, our friend and CHILLERAMA star Anton Troy needs our help after being stabbed multiple times in his head, face, and neck during a random attack last month.  Please visit for more details and to contribute whatever you can.  Thank you!
