Episode 26: The Master Rapture

Religious Cult Films!

Steve Johnson, the living special FX legend behind many of your favorite films including Ghostbusters, Big Trouble in Little China, and more drops in to talk about last week's feature Innocent Blood! Listen to his amazing stories from Innocent Blood and spread the word for his current Kickstarter campaign for his book series, RUBBERHEAD: Sex, Drugs, and Special FX!

This week, Faults in the Vaults takes a look at two films dealing with the struggles of belief and how people can be led astray. We cast doubt onto Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master (2012), in order to preach the gospel of Michael Tolkin's The Rapture (1991).

Elsewhere, discussions of newly acquired VR tech, Josh's new project Other Fish, and yet another Herzog discussion breaks out after digging once more into The MailbagThis Week in Torrents has Josh presenting his personal archive of assembled footage of Cleveland's Ghoulardi, the classic late night horror host and father of Paul Thomas Anderson.

Josh goes Slipping Through the Tracks this week with a selection from the career of long-time David Lynch collaborator, Angelo Badalamenti, specifically his score for Marc Caro & Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 1995 surrealist sci-fi fantasy, La cité des enfants perdus (City of Lost Children)!
