Filmmakers Mike Mendez (TALES OF HALLOWEEN, BIG ASS SPIDER) and Alejandro Brugués (JUAN OF THE DEAD, NIGHTMARE CINEMA) return to the podcast to discuss the making of their new anthology film SATANIC HISPANICS. From the genesis of the idea for a horror anthology based in Hispanic heritage… to applying the lessons they learned from working on previous anthologies… to the tonal shifts between stories that make for a well rounded viewing experience and the amount of trust and creative control that needs to be given to the other filmmakers on the project… Mike and Alejandro go through the process of bringing their idea to the big screen. Also, Mike shares his joy in being recognized as the “corpse f**ker” from CHILLERAMA, Alejandro thinks Adam’s rabbits look delicious, and Joe finds out how the production went on a project that he didn’t land.
With double guests comes a double shot of“Hollywood Therapy!” Dr. Arwen advises a listener who is looking to properly obtain exhibition rights for their film club’s programming and then leads the group through an extremely touching grief counseling session focused on enjoying life guilt-free after enduring a crushing loss. It’s a roller coaster of a conversation as four friends share big laughs and deeply personal life experiences.
