*THE MOVIE CRYPT premiered on May 6, 2013 and is one of the only podcasts on the internet that has never taken a week off. Even as two working filmmakers who are consistently directing new films and TV shows, Adam Green and Joe Lynch have released a new episode of this podcast every single Monday (some years even on Christmas Day!) ever since the day the first episode was released.
