PUBLIC VERSION. Screenwriter Dennis Paoli (RE-ANIMATOR, FROM BEYOND, CASTLE FREAK, DAGON, BODY SNATCHERS) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his incredible career. From fatefully meeting the great Stuart Gordon all the way back in High School and discovering just how much their artistic sensibilities overlapped… to his theater work as part of “The Human Race” satire group touring coffee houses in Chicago… to how performing “naked theater” wound up getting Stuart Gordon thrown in jail… to how producer Charles Band helped launch his, Stuart’s, and so many other’s careers… to how 1995’s CASTLE FREAK was truly a “labor of lust”… to the method behind his madness in tackling adaptations of H.P. Lovecraft’s work and how he separates the art from such a controversial and complicated artist… to his many years teaching Gothic literature… to working with our own Joe Lynch on their latest feature SUITABLE FLESH (now in theaters and on-demand!)… Dennis pulls the curtain back on his long screenwriting career.
Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for an industry professional who’s at his breaking point with having to “give them what they want,” Joe has a wicked bad accident, and Adam goes behind the (smelly) scenes of this year’s ArieScope Halloween short HALLOWEEN SOCKS.
