This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, Ben Solovey explains why he’s personally restoring a 16mm print of Manos: The Hands of Fate, one of the worst movies ever made.
Plus, I Melt With You director Mark Pellington talks drugs and demons, and it’s Fat Guy Kevin Carr versus Geek Tyrant editor-in-chief Jim Napier in a Movie News Pop Quiz that will change everything forever and ever.
On This Week’s Show:
Movie News Pop Quiz [The Beginning – 16:00]: It’s Carr vs Napier, and neither will leave the stadium with clean hands, so it’s no surprise we end up talking about Christmas movie season starting way, way too early.
The Master [16:00 – 24:00]: Ben Solovey is a crazy, wonderful man who wants to restore cult horror film Manos: The Hands of Fate (aka The Room of the 60s). What compels him? He joins us to talk about the process he’ll be using.
I’ll Stop The World [24:00 – The End]: I Melt With You features four old friends using a lot of chemicals and facing a pact they made 25 years ago that still rings loudly in their minds. Director Mark Pellington joins us to talk snorting vitamin C, creating laughs in the darkness, and the most freedom he’s felt as a filmmaker.
