The Movie Crypt

Dec 10, 2018

Filmmaker Alexandre Aja (HIGH TENSION, THE HILLS HAVE EYES, PIRANHA 3D, HORNS) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career path in this phenomenal conversation that was long, long overdue.  From how Alex broke in… to hurdles in post-production… to dealing with the MPAA… to the pressures that come with remaking a film… to making crucial career choices in an industry where certainty doesn’t exist… this conversation between three colleagues from the same generation of filmmakers is one that you’ve likely been waiting for ever since this podcast started.  (It’s an episode that we’ve certainly been anxious to make happen for over 5 years now!) Dr. Arwen prescribes advice on how to manage co-worker relationships while still doing what is best for YOU, our beloved Patreon supporters get an extended “Viewer Mail” segment because we love them, and the guys enjoy their last few nights of sleep before this weekend’s 3rd annual 48-hour LIVE marathon to save the Yorkies.  It’s here!  It’s heeeere!

THE MOVIE CRYPT’s 3rd annual 48-hour LIVE marathon to benefit Save A Yorkie Rescue is THIS coming weekend!  Listen to the entire marathon FREE on starting at 5pm PST on Friday December 14th through 5pm PST on Sunday December 16th!  (The special 2 hour pre-show from DJ Green and MC Licks-A-Lot kicks off on Friday at 3pm PST for those of you early birds who prefer your 48 hour marathons in a 50 hour format.) With two straight days of celebrity guests, live script readings that you absolutely cannot miss, live film commentaries, comedy, music, and Arwen’s Silent Auction, you’re gonna want to stock up on sleep so that you don’t miss a single moment!  Help Arwen and the boys save as many wheel barrels of homeless and abused Yorkies as possible this Christmas!  We’re staying awake so that they don’t get put to sleep.
