Director Neill Blomkamp joins the show to discuss his latest horror feature, Demonic. He explains the very new technology used to create the digital subconscious captured in the film, how the pandemic actually brought him back to feature filmmaking sooner than he expected, an upcoming sequel to District 9, and his lost Aliens 5 script.
We also debate the quintessential baseball movie, Free Guy’s surprising Box Office results, and review the many films hitting theaters and streamers this week; including Demonic, The Protégé (starring Michael Keaton), Reminiscence (starring Hugh Jackman, Rebecca Ferguson), and The Night House (starring Rebecca Hall).
