The Movie Crypt

Sep 12, 2022

PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Damien Leone (TERRIFIER, TERRIFIER 2, ALL HALLOWS’ EVE) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to share his journey in one of best discussions about making a slasher film that you’ll hear this year. From being named after “Damien” in THE OMEN and being introduced to horror films at age 3… to falling in love with the art of special make-up effects and making his own short films… to quickly deciding that college wasn’t his path and putting money into a short film to serve as his calling card instead… to being recruited to direct an anthology (ALL HALLOWS’ EVE) by a producer who saw his short on YouTube… to the genesis of “Art the Clown”… to making TERRIFIER on a ridiculously low budget by wearing so many key hats on the production himself… to the film’s slow climb to success through word of mouth and the excitement of horror fans… to the long road to making the highly anticipated sequel (TERRIFIER 2 - in theaters October 6th) and everything that goes into creating a great villain that connects with genre fans… this 2 hour filmmaker on filmmaker conversation is like taking a Slasher 101 course at Horror University… if Horror University was a thing.

Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for an aspiring artist who is feeling like his chance at going pro may have passed him by, a slasher gauntlet is thrown down, and the boys announce the very first details about YORKIETHON 7 - coming this Christmas! As usual, the juiciest bits are in the second hour. (We love you, Patrons!)
