Junkfood Cinema: Urban Fantasy Island

Labyrinth Movie

TriStar Pictures

Come along and ride on a different kind of fantastic voyage. This week, in honor of the release of Cargill’s second novel, “Queen of the Dark Things,” we discuss our favorite cinematic examples of urban fantasy. Whether in the form of dueling immortals, vengeance-seeking grunge rockers, or the full arsenal of Jim Henson‘s creative genius, these clashes of fantasy and reality capture our imagination in so many ways and served as the inspiration for Cargill’s new book.

We also spend FAR too much time talking about Gone Fishin’. You’re welcome, world.

You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema).
