Reject Radio #96: The Jump Scare

This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, we play Perfect Host to David Hyde Pierce, get twisted on David Lynchian philosophy with Shai Biderman, and try to escape The Ward with director John Carpenter.

Plus, there’s no pesky movie news quiz this week (which means we just lost half of our audience).

On This Week’s Show:

Promptly at 8:30 [The Beginning – 13:15]: David Hyde Pierce is both firmly inside and completely outside his wheelhouse in The Perfect Host. He stops by to talk preparing for a psychologically complex role, his unorthodox sex scene, and his love of the spoiler warning.

No Hay Banda [13:15 – 35:30]: David Lynch demands to be understood. Tracking through Mulholland Dr., Twin Peaks and others, author Shai Biderman shares the insight of “The Philosophy of David Lynch.” As it turns out, there is no band.

Master of Horror [35:30 – The End]: John Carpenter’s The Ward is his first movie in a decade. We talk with the icon about being burnt out, finding the passion again, and remakes. The sound quality is a bit static-y in places. Fair warning.

On Next Week’s Show:

We record live from The Highball in scenic Austin, Texas. Alamo Drafthouse owner Tim League, programmer Zack Carlson and a few other insane people will be on hand to drink heavily and avoid making a coherent show.
