Indie Horror Icon GRAHAM SKIPPER Talks with Grindhouse Messiah About ALTERED STATES and VIDEODROME
We’ve got our first guest of 2018 and he’s an great one. Indie horror actor from films like Beyond the Gates and Almost Human, director of the upcoming techno body horror feature Sequence Break, and amazingly awesome guy, Graham Skipper, has come to Grindhouse Messiah to talk about a few of his inspirations. He has brought with us two modern horror classics from the 80s: Ken Russell’s Altered States and Davide Cronenberg’s Videodrome. And, as tends to happen when we talk about films like these, shit gets deep.
We wrestle with the spiritual and psychological themes of Altered States first, and the prophetic messages of Videodrome next. Then, we dive headlong into Graham’s new film, which you should all check out when it debuts on Shudder in the next few months.
The music on this podcast includes tracks from rapper Sadistik, heavy metalheads Evile, and defunct Philly 8-bit inspired instrumental rock outfit Chromelodeon.
