This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, we talk with independent film legend and Troma co-founder Lloyd Kaufman and then bad movie expert Eric D. Snider to try to figure out why we love stuff that’s so bad it’s good.
Plus, Jeremy Smith from Aint It Cool and Germain Lussier from /film return to do battle in the Movie News Pop Quiz and discuss the brilliant or accidental viral marketing of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Let the swear words commence.
On This Week’s Show:
The Reject Radio Movie News Pop Quiz [The Beginning – 12:45]: It’s Smith vs Lussier in the Movie News Battle to the Pain. The result is a shocker, and the conversation turns to fake bootlegs and what you can do to save your community from them.
Almost 40 Years of Reel Independence [12:45 – 45:30]: Troma founder Lloyd Kaufman is a legend in the independent filmmaking world. After writing his book “Make Your Own Damn Movie!” he’s continued the series and topped it off with the most recent: “Sell Your Own Damn Movie!” He speaks here about the devil-worshipping corporate entities that blacklist his films, the benefits of staying indie, and how to sell what you’ve put your heart, soul and wallet into.
The Appeal of Schlock [45:30 – The End]: Loving bad movies isn’t a crime (Brian Salisbury can attest to that), so Eric D. Snider joins me to try to figure out why we love profoundly inept filmmaking.
