Monster Kid Radio, The Uncanny, Horror anthology

It was my pleasure recently to appear on Monster Kid Radio and chat with host Derek Koch about a lesser seen and discussed horror anthology film, THE UNCANNY. It features an excellent cast (including Peter Cushing and Ray Milland in the wrap-around story) and we had a blast discussing it. I put together this video version of it for YouTube (with Derek's blessing) and thought you folks might enjoy it. THE UNCANNY is available on DVD and VHS.

Thank you George Romero

Off the cuff special thanks and tribute to George Romero, a truly iconic and influential filmmaker, and father of the modern zombie genre. Thanks for all you did, George. Not many people can create an entire genre of film, but you did. Without you, there is no Walking Dead, no Shaun of the Dead, no Zombieland, Zombi 2, or any other flesh eating zombie film in existence. #romero
