Broken Projector: Long Lost Horror Movies

sxsw youre next

We’ve waited a long time to see You’re Next, an even longer time to see All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, and we’ll never get to see The Day the Clown Cried. While we tear-up about it, producer Keith Calder joins us to describe what it’s like to see something you made collect dust on a shelf even as people clamor for its release. He’ll explain one direction your luck can go in when your movie is being treated like a used mattress.

Plus, Geoff and I daydream about movies that could have been amazing if they hadn’t burned in development hell and explore how to email a professional screenwriter looking for advice.

You should follow Keith Calder (@keithcalder), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more fun stuff on a daily basis.

And, as always, please send us your feedback.
