Junkfood Cinema: Return to Horror Clooney

Archives Default

New World Pictures

This week, Cargill and I go outside the Actor’s Studio to examine the early horror films of one Mr. George Clooney, or as you may now know him: God-King of Hollywood.

Back in the glory days, the all-or-nothing days, before bestriding the narrow world like a colossus, Clooney was a struggling actor same as countless others, forced to take roles in b-horror outings in order to pay the rent. However, these horror films each had something special and of surprisingly quality to offer. Most interesting of the bunch is the never-released Grizzly II, on which Cargill and I go into startling detail.

We also announce our July 4th appearance at CONvergence in Minneapolis! Can’t venture to America’s Hoth that weekend? No problem! We’ll be recording an episode during the CON and will make it available to you, our beloved Junkies, directly thereafter.

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