The Planet of Terror Podcast: Episode 2

Episode 2 of The Planet of Terror Podcast is locked and loaded. My guest for this episode is writer/director Gregg Holtgrewe, the mastermind behind the fantastic film Dawning. It made it to the top of my 'best of' list for 2010 as well as many other bloggers.

We talk about the production of the film, including the original idea to have a creature/monster. Just listen and let him describe it to you. I'm certainly glad it didn't go that route!

Anyways, we also talk about current films and the woes of independent distribution and on top of that, we get a couple of guest appearances from my dog Ozzy. Enjoy!

Great interview and some great conversation, too. I'd love to see what that 'Slimer' like creature looks likes, and it's good to hear that Gregg knows his shit as that reflects on Dawning. However,I do think The Roommate looks fabulous! Kind of. Okay, not at all, but I know I'll love it!

Thanks for checking it out Matt. Yeah, it'd be interesting to see how the creature would have turned out. But the way that he described it was not only hilarious but had he gone that route, I don't think the film would have been anywhere near as terrifying.

Correction on my part, I misspoke about Adam Green's Hatchet. Don't know why I thought it came out in 2001 or 2002. My bad.
