Elijah Wood und Daniel Noah (Produzent von unter anderem The Greasy Strangler, Mandy, Daniel isn’t real und der kommenden Lovecraft-Verfilmung The Color out of Space) produzieren seit zwei Monaten einen ausführlichen Horror-Podcast, in dem sie mit bekannten Gästen wie Taiki Waititi, John Landis oder Ana Lily Amirpour dankenswerterweise nicht über Effekte oder Gore oder Hollywood reden, sondern über Schwarze Magie, Dario Argentos Grasdealer, Biker-Gangs und Luzide Träume. Patrick Lohmeier hat den Podcast für den DLF Kompressor grade vorgestellt.
Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah of indie production company SpectreVision visit the homes and workshops of some of their favorite creators in the genre community and beyond, including Taika Waititi, Ana Lily Amirpour, Flying Lotus, Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte and others. From campfire tales to creature features, the exhilarating, entertaining and sometimes even therapeutic experience of facing one’s fears has always fascinated our hosts. On these intimate visits, guests delve into their lives, their work and how they’ve managed to turn their fears into art.
