Review: The Movie Crypt

The_Movie_Crypt_463x265

Fans of the popular FEARNET show Holliston starring Adam Green and Joe Lynch are familiar with their local cable show (on the show), The Movie Crypt. Adam and Joe have since made The Movie Crypt a reality.

url-51What is The Movie Crypt? It is a weekly podcast hosted by Adam Green, Joe Lynch and usually a special guest, and they discuss all manner of topics including, but not limited to, movies, film making and working in Hollywood. Past guests include Kane Hodder, Derek Mears, Oderus Urungus, Colton Dunn, Dee Snider, Corri English, Danielle Harris and many other great names.

Being a horror nerd and fan of Adam Green and Holliston, I was super excited to see The Movie Crypt become an actual podcast. I knew that there would obviously be film and industry talk as well JoeLynchHollisteras a bit of hilarity, but it is way better than I thought possible. Adam and Joe are not only comical in discussing whatever topic is on that day’s agenda, but the level of comedy that is thrown in makes The Movie Crypt quite possibly the best podcast ever.

The chemistry that Adam and Joe have together make this podcast even better. They compliment each other so well, they really are a more awesome version of Abbott and Costello. Don’t let all of the comedy fool you though, there has been a serious episode. Following the death of GWAR front man and good friend to Adam and Joe, Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus, they did a tribute episode to him. It will make you want to cry and laugh at the same time.

There has yet to be a bad episode of The Movie Crypt. I highly recommend it to any fan of Adam, Joe, Holliston and just horror fans in general. Not only is it awesome, but it’s FREE.

It airs Mondays at 10 am PST. Missed an episode or have yet to listen, don’t worry, all episodes are in a scroll bar at the bottom. You can find new and past episodes here.

To make sure that you stay up to date on The Movie Crypt, be sure to follow Adam, Joe and The Movie Crypt on twitter (if you’re not already, you can do so by clicking the names).

HOLLISTON Season 2 Now Available On Blu-Ray

holliston-image-2

Holliston-Season-2In the wake of the tragic loss of Dave Brockie aka Oderus Urungus and the sad news that FEARNET will be no more, some good news has come, HOLLISTON season 2 is now available on blu-ray.

If you have yet to see an episode of HOLLISTON, you are really missing out. Season 2 is even better than season 1. For those still living under a rock, here is the recap of season 1:

Adam Green and Joe Lynch star as two aspiring horror filmmakers working for the very androgynous (to say the least) Lance Rocket (played by Dee Snider) who fronts a Van Halen tribute band called Dyver Down. Adam and Joe live in a really shitty apartment and Adam has an imaginary friend that lives in his closet, enter Oderus Urungus. Adam is still in love with his childhood flame, Corri and Joe is dating the artistic Laura (she’s Colombian not Mexican). There are loads of guest appearances by horror icons such as Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder, Tony Todd, Sid Haig and many more. Adam and Joe are trying to make their soccer zombie film Shinpads (“When they score, you die”). You also learn that tits are good and balls are bad. Hilarity and mayhem ensue, and you get the best damn show around. Get out from under the rock and check it out. You can buy season 1 HERE.

The HOLLISTON season 2 blu-ray includes eleven episodes, including an uncut version of the hour long Christmas special, cast commentary tracks, and over 70 minutes of bonus features. That totals a shit load of awesomeness. Not only are the episodes funny, but many of them include some pretty awesome guest stars like Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, Seth Green, Sid Haig, David Naughton and Derek Mears just to name a few

One more bonus, when you purchase the blu-ray via the ArieScope website, not only do you get the awesomeness of the season, but you also get it autographed. To purchase via ArieScope, CLICK HERE.

Starting with the series’ pilot episode and running through to the ninth episode of the second season, the marathon will whet fans’ appetites and get them caught up on all the HOLLISTON hijinks, just in time for the season two finale on Tuesday, August 6.

 

As an added bonus, FEARnet will also be unveiling the world premiere of series character Lance Rockett’s (Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider) first music video. Fans can get a behind-the-scenes look at the music video exclusively on FEARnet, on Friday, August 2.

The original song, itself, “Love It Down Your Throat,” will be made available for purchase on iTunes right after the season finale airs.

 

The brainchild of lifelong genre fan-turned-filmmaker Adam Green, HOLLISTON is an irreverent take on the traditional multi-camera situational comedy, aimed at lovers of true horror, sci-fi and pop culture. Starring Green and Joe Lynch (EVERLY, WRONG TURN 2), HOLLISTON is set in Green’s real life hometown of Holliston, Massachusetts, and follows the daily exploits of Adam and Joe—two aspiring horror filmmakers, dealing with the struggles of post-college life and relationships, while trying to make their big break in the business. The talented ensemble cast includes Corri English (UNREST, DEVIL MAY CALL), Laura Ortiz (THE HILLS HAVE EYES, HAPPY ENDINGS), Dave Brockie (alien frontman “Oderus Urungus” from the heavy metal band GWAR), and Dee Snider (Twisted Sister).

 

Highlights of the marathon include a terrifying encounter with a hard-partying Tony Todd (CANDYMAN); ill-fated run-ins with Danielle Harris (HATCHET III), Kane Hodder (FRIDAY THE 13TH VII-IX), and John Landis at a horror convention; a Christmas Special with a madman on the loose; an animated episode that sees the town attacked by a giant blob; a RINGU-inspired J-Horror episode; a Found Footage episode; and appearances from genre stars such as Bill Moseley (TEXAS CHAINSAW), Sid Haig (THE LORDS OF SALEM), David Naughton (AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON), and Bailee Madison (DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK).

The brainchild of lifelong genre fan-turned-filmmaker Adam Green, HOLLISTON is an irreverent take on the traditional multi-camera situational comedy, aimed at lovers of true horror, sci-fi and pop culture. The series is currently in the middle of its second season—which premiered on June 4—filled with even more heartfelt hilarity and outrageous storylines, and featuring episodes inspired by J-Horror and Found Footage films, an animated episode, and a multitude of guest appearances from genre icons such as Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder, Derek Mears, Danielle Harris and Bailee Madison.

“It feels great to be coming back to Comic-Con with HOLLISTON,” Green said. “The show was all but created for the Comic-Con crowd, mixing horror, Sci Fi, heavy metal and pop culture in a classic sitcom format that was always for ‘them’ and never for ‘us’. It’s incredible to see that the show still resonates so strongly with legions of geeks, like me.”

 

HOLLISTON is produced by film and television production company ArieScope Pictures, which was founded in 1998 by Green, producer Cory Neal and cinematographer Will Barratt. ArieScope is an industry leader in independent genre fare, and has produced several theatrical titles over the years, including HATCHET, HATCHET 2, FROZEN, SPIRAL, GRACE, CHILLERAMA, HATCHET 3 and the upcoming DIGGING UP THE MARROW.
