Sep 27, 2021

PUBLIC VERSION. Actor, writer, director, and #1 best selling author William Butler (FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII: THE NEW BLOOD, LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1990), MADHOUSE) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to share his career journey so far. From his early exposure to show business growing up working at a venue that hosted huge concerts like PRINCE and massive events like the circus… to following his childhood friend and beloved FX artist the late John Vulich out to Los Angeles where he lived in his car and briefly worked as a “Tour Guide” on Disneyland’s legendary Jungle Cruise ride… found himself working all over the world with the FX departments on films like FROM BEYOND, THE GARBAGE PAIL KIDS MOVIE, PRISON, and ARMY OF DARKNESS… to acting in franchise classics like FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII, LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3, and Tom Savini’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD remake… to writing and directing feature films like MADHOUSE and FURNACE, creating TV series like Amazon Prime’s RESONATOR: MISKATONIC U, and directing everything from episodic television to network promotions … to the release of his best selling book “TAWDRY TALES AND CONFESSIONS FROM HORROR’S BOY NEXT DOOR”… William (Billy) Butler has quite literally seen and done it all. Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a writer questioning the morality of darker works of art, Joe narrowly escapes from Hurricane Ida, Billy shares a real-life horror story from the set of FURNACE, and Adam declares that Billy’s autobiography is THE book of the year for you. (Yes- YOU!)
