Episode 27: Tim Lucas

Bill talks to writer and film historian Tim Lucas about some of his many contributions to film culture, from early mimeographed fanzines and articles like “The Shape Of Rage” and "The Butchering of Dario Argento" to award-winning efforts like Video Watchdog magazine and the book MARIO BAVA: ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK. Other topics covered include David Cronenberg and the filming of VIDEODROME, audio commentaries, Kim Newman, George A. Romero, Craig Ledbetter, Quentin Tarantino, penning profane subtitles for RABID DOGS, The Jefferson Airplane, Video WatchBlog, the “post-horror” label and how reviewing Ken Russell’s THE DEVILS for your high school newspaper doesn’t seem so strange when you’re a teenager.
