Reject Radio #95: Cult Status

This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, author Stephen Rebello joins us to share the insight of “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho,” and Gallery 1988 co-founder Jensen Karp gets crazy for cult and explains what Edward Scissorhands is doing in a painting with Jack Skellington.

Plus, our very own Fatguy Kevin Carr joins me to play Good News/Bad News and tries to envision a spy thriller directed by Edgar Wright.

On This Week’s Show:

Good News/Bad News [The Beginning – 18:30]: We’re taking the week off from the Movie News Pop Quiz to deliver our favorite and least favorite news items of the week. Plastic cars and China are, of course, involved.

A Quiet Little Motel [18:30 – 52:00]: Author Stephen Rebello literally wrote the book on the making of Psycho. Here, he offers some background for the production, confirms a few kinky rumors, and celebrates the legacy of a true horror masterpiece.

Crazy4Cult 52:00 – The End]: “Crazy4Cult” is the kind of book that forces you to skip a car payment in order to get a painting of Tyler Durden riding down a hill with Calvin. The book spawns from the popular art show hosted by Gallery 1988, and fellow cinephile Jensen Karp joins us to talk about art that captures movie magic.

Here are a few examples from 1) Scott Scheidly 2) Shannon Bonatakis 3) Scott Belcastro and 4) Carlos Ramos:
