Need yet another podcast in your life?? Josh started a new series with Stephen Scarlata called BEST MOVIES NEVER MADE. The podcast is a continuation of Steve’s phenomenal documentary, JODOROWSKY’S DUNE, where we’ll explore interesting and infamous movies that never made it to or through production! https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/best-movies-never-made/id1450737048?mt=2

We’ve already recorded:

NIGHT SKIES, the nutso Spielberg horror movie that ended up spawning E.T. w/ Graham Skipper and Mark A Altman.

Adam Rifkin talks about his RETURN TO THE PLANET OF THE APES and HE-MAN.

Fred Dekker talks about his GODZILLA 3-D.

John Sayles’s dino-commandos JURASSIC PARK 4 w/ Jonah Ray and Brian Collins

William Malone talks about his two H.R. Giger projects.

And a lot more crazy sh*t too!

Our first two episodes are now live wherever you get your ear-stuff. SUBSCRIBE OR DIE!!! Big thanks to Mark Altman, Dean Devlin and everyone at Eletric Surge Network.
