Silver Linings Playback 74 – Vampires

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre watch maligned movies and find their silver linings. For the month of October, they are watching maligned horror films.

They start the month with John Carpenter’s 1998 film Vampires, which suffers from being released the same year as the far-superior Blade.

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott

Hobo Radio 368 – A surprisingly candid chat with Chris LaMartina

This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle are joined by Baltimore filmmaker Chris LaMartina, whose films include Call Girl of the Cthulhu and the WNUF Halloween Special.

LaMartina opens up about making movies on a budget, falling for his wife while directing her on one of his films and guerrilla marketing in the digital age. Plus, all three of them talk about their favorite horror directors and films.

Why does LaMartina like making movies in Baltimore? How tough is it making feature-length horror films when you have a day job? What is it like directing your father and future wife in a sex scene? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Lights Out” by Blue Dot Session/Ian Gordon reading from The Call of the Cthulhu
  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
