OKPOPcast: Tulsa Terrors
THIS WEEK ON THE OKPOP RADIO HOUR: TULSA TERRORS!
Our guests Bryan Crain and John Wooley are two excellent storytellers who’ve teamed up again for a new documentary called TULSA TERRORS!
In the mid-1980s, Tulsa was ground zero for the direct-to-home-video movie explosion, and for the next 20 years area filmmakers aimed a variety of horror, fantasy, and science-fiction features right at the heart of that market. Some made it. Some fell short. But all of them were created with an earnestness and passion that belied their budgets. TULSA TERRORS tells the story of those movies, in the words of the moviemakers themselves and others who were on the scene for a revolution that will never be repeated.
Don’t miss the television premiere of TULSA TERRORS Halloween night, October 31, on RSU-TV KRSU!
The best podcast about Oklahoma pop culture!
