The Movie Crypt

May 8, 2023

PUBLIC VERSION. Hosts Adam Green, Joe Lynch, and Arwen celebrate the 10 year anniversary of THE MOVIE CRYPT with make-up FX legend Todd Masters (SLITHER, THE MANGLER, SIX FEET UNDER, TRUE BLOOD, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET V: THE DREAM CHILD, DEAD HEAT, LOOK WHO’S TALKING) in this incredibly fun, extended-length, special episode! From a little kid in Seattle who dreamed of making monsters… to destroying his parents’ house with various homemade FX experiments… to cold calling his hero Ray Harryhausen directly to ask for advice… to getting turned down by every art school and deciding to move down to Los Angeles and find his own way into the Hollywood make-up FX community… to behind the scenes tales of working on some of the greatest and most memorable films of the 80’s, 90’s and beyond… to advice on how to appropriately ask A-level talent to work on a budgetary challenged indie production… Todd shares his career journey from the floors of the Valley’s make-up FX shops to the silver screens all over the world in this extremely candid hang-out/geek-out with one of Hollywood’s greatest artists!

Dr. Arwen provides a hilarious “Hollywood Therapy” session for a filmmaker facing a crossroads with his short film’s festival run, Dreidel the bunny gets revenge on a greedy squirrel, and the boys explain why ice cream and cookies are the secret ingredients to running a successful business in this special “10th Anniversary” episode that has one of the best and most brutally honest second hours in MOVIE CRYPT history.
