THE NIGHT CREW Episode One with Brian Trenchard-Smith

The first official episode is here kiddies! We are still working out the kinks, so bare with us, but have it cinefreaks. Hide your parents and small animals! This week The Mack brings news that has been dropping at our parent site, Twitch Film, over the past week. Then we are joined once again by the inimitable James Marsh, in our weekly 3Dip. This time around Thom, Andrew, and James discuss the finer points of East meets West buddy pictures. The Man From Hong Kong, The Challenge, and Black Rain all go up on the block for a critical (and not so critical) look at how they compare, and which ones should sit on your video shelf. After that, it's The Man From Hong Kong director himself, the inimitable Aussie, hallowed action/exploitation director Brian Trenchard-Smith. Sean The Butcher and Thom pick Brian's brain about the aforementioned bi-cultural thrillfest, as well as some of his other work, including the amazing Siege At Firebase Gloria (now streaming on Netflix!) and his kids'n'BMX bikes classic BMX Bandits (just released in Blu Ray!!!) Give it up for Gareth Jones in London, who had the misfortune of being assigned attending the first ever UK installment of the After Dark horror festival (full of horrors and not a lot of festival from what we gather) As if that isn't enough, Mars Homeworld checks in with some breaking news, and Fangoria magazine editor-in-chief Chris Alexander checks in with his first Movie Minute, which is closer to five minutes really, but when you have a guy like Chris excited about a new film or TV series, you let him go. 'Aint no one complaining! Factor in music here and there, goofy sound bytes, bad audio mixing, and Sean's endearing lisp, and it could only be one show...

  1. Another great show! I have a few movies I would LOVE to hear you review! Teeth, Feed, and Santa Sangre are among my top twenty. These are movies worth the viewing time. A few old movies that are fun to go back and look at are Night of the Comet and Night of the Creeps. Old, possibly bad, but still awesome.
