Episode 41: Legacy Monsters
Our latest episode is out now! Our friends Phil Kim and Jorge Marrero from Famous Monsters of Filmland join us to talk about legacy monsters. This was an idea Matt and I had been kicking around for a bit and it was just the question of; what makes a monster stick to our social fabric like a blood stain?
We really have two eras that produced all of our major monsters. The Universal Monster era and then again in the 80's with the special effects renaissance. What makes it so difficult for new monsters to get in the door?
It is a really good conversation and we love collaborating with The People at Famous Monsters.
