    Ep 350: Severin Fiala & Veronika Franz

    Ep 350: Severin Fiala & Veronika Franz

    Austrian filmmaking team Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz (GOODNIGHT MOMMY, THE LODGE) sits down with Adam, Joe, and Arwen for a hilarious and extremely honest conversation about their career journey and the reality of financing films in this day and age. The unlikely filmmaking duo share the incredible story of how they met and began working together… the major differences/similarities between getting a film financed in Austria and in America… their approach to equally sharing the helm on each project… the major differences with which “success” is measured in Austria and in the USA… and the challenges that almost every filmmaker faces in trying to communicate just how difficult it actually is to maintain a career in the arts to those on the outside of the industry. Dr. Arwen provides emotional support/advice to a filmmaker wondering when the time is right to stop working for free (which spawns a brutally honest discussion about the perils of being too generous), Adam shares a very messy story about “parenting,” and Joe and Severin realize that they in fact shared a past “life” in this super entertaining and incredibly candid episode.

    Ep 349: Stephen Lang

    Actor Stephen Lang (AVATAR, DON’T BREATHE, MANHUNTER) sits down with Adam, Joe, and Arwen to share his career journey. From answering “the calling” to become a performer… to working on Broadway alongside such greats as Dustin Hoffman and John Malkovich… to Stephen’s process behind becoming the characters he embodies with each new role… to constantly adapting to each different directors’ unique style… to the story behind “Miles Quaritch’s” coffee cup in AVATAR… to how he feels about his children working in the industry… to working with our friends Joe Begos and Josh Ethier on their latest film VFW (available this Friday/Valentine’s Day!)… it is easy to see why Stephen has become one of the most beloved character actors working today. Dr. Arwen helps guide a filmmaker with their short film’s next steps and Stephen answers our Crypt Keepers’ burning questions in this wicked fun episode.

    Ep 348: FROZEN in Kansas City (LIVE)

    Ep 348: FROZEN in Kansas City (LIVE)

    On Saturday January 25, 2020 the Panic Film Festival in Kansas City, MO presented a special 10th anniversary screening of Adam Green’s FROZEN followed by a live performance of THE MOVIE CRYPT podcast. For the first time ever, Joe Lynch interviews Adam Green in the most candid filmmaker on filmmaker conversation about the making of FROZEN that you’ll ever hear. From Green turning down an offer that would have doubled the production’s budget had he been willing to concede to the producer’s demands (which included NOT shooting the film entirely on location)… to Green literally casting the very first actress to walk into the audition room… to the technical and physical hurdles that the cast and crew endured shooting on the side of a mountain in Utah during the dead of winter… to Joe’s father passing away while he was visiting the set… to the moments with the wolves that turned dangerous… to the haunting story about the real-life tragedy that had occurred in the very spot Green was compelled to shoot the film in… the two filmmakers take a deep dive behind the scenes of FROZEN’s lasting legacy “doing for skiing what JAWS did for swimming.” Recorded before a live audience the episode also includes the return of “The Steven Tyler Congratulations” as Green and Lynch honor a very special guest who also had a film screening at Panic Fest this year. NOTE: Unfortunately Arwen could not attend this live appearance due to a previously scheduled professional obligation.
    Green and Lynch held a “Crypt Keeper” meet up at the Screenland Armour theater where over 20 Patreon members joined the hosts for a private hangout before the screening of FROZEN began!

    Ep 347: Sam Wineman

    Ep 347: Sam Wineman

    Filmmaker Sam Wineman (DEATHCEMBER, THE QUIET ROOM, Attack Of The Queerwolf Podcast) shares his journey with Adam, Joe, and Arwen in this absolutely fantastic episode! From growing up feeling different and forming a cinematic kinship with the horror genre and its monsters… to recognizing that he was drowning his confusion in alcohol as a young teen and taking action to change the path he was heading down… to bravely coming out as queer to a family that wasn’t immediately ready to embrace his realization… to finding his calling in college telling stories and making short films… to the making of his documentary on queer cinema (in post-production now and due out on Shudder this summer)… Sam’s candid perspective on the genre makes for a fascinating and eye opening conversation. Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a patient stricken with grief and the guys get deeply personal about death in this truly important episode of The Movie Crypt.

    Ep 346: Rodman Flender

    Ep 346: Rodman Flender

    Filmmaker Rodman Flender (IDLE HANDS, LEPRECHAUN 2, TV’s THE OFFICE) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to share his cinematic journey. From starting out as an actor… to always saying “yes” to new and sudden opportunities…  to finding himself all but running the day to day operations for Roger Corman’s company…  to the pros and cons of not being “pigeonholed” as an artist… to IDLE HANDS being targeted by politicians in the wake of the Columbine tragedy…  to the making of his latest film EAT BRAINS LOVE (“a road trip comedy with a side of cannibalism”)… Rodman’s path has been anything but predictable and this conversation is an absolute blast! Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a patient in need of cinematic closure, everyone’s sick, and all three guys gear up for Panic Fest in Kansas City this coming weekend!

    Ep 345: Kyra Gardner

    Ep 345: Kyra Gardner

    Filmmaker Kyra Gardner may have only just graduated film school a few months ago but she’s already one of the best examples we know of an emerging young talent making huge strides in the world of cinema today! From trying to decide between a career as a veterinarian or an army nurse and instead choosing filmmaking as her calling… to observing her father at work on sets (Tony Gardner is an FX legend – check out our conversation with him in Ep 246)… to having her first short film selected for the 39th Cleveland International Film Festival at age 16 (the youngest participant ever!)… to having her short form documentary THE DOLLHOUSE acquired by Universal Studios for inclusion on the CULT OF CHUCKY home video (she was only 19!)... to winning a DGA Student Award at age 22 for her latest short film PHOEBE… at just 22 years old Kyra’s list of accomplishments is enough to motivate anyone looking to pick up a camera! Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” to a patient who is worried that his life may have passed him by as well as a filmmaker ready to secure distribution for his series while Joe stays in bed with the flu just like “Cameron” in FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF (“let my Cameron go…”) in this wicked inspiring episode.
