FANS: He was Robbie Freeling in Poltergeist (1982) and Poltergeist II: The Other Side (1986) and few cult films get bigger than this! Yes, the great Oliver Robins joins us to discuss his biggest fears--cue lots of bees, trees and clown talk--the alleged Poltergeist "curse," and working with Sonny Bono in Airplane II: The Sequel (1982). Then we get the exciting scoop about the new horror/black comedy that Oliver wrote, directed and stars in: Celebrity Crush (2019). It hits VOD this month, and you won't want to miss it!
FILMS: We get so deep into Poltergeist (1982) that we almost cross over to the other side. This review is NOT clean. Or is it? And will Oliver use his film school background to assign it an unbiased rating on the Cult Filmometer, or will he let his "Freeling feelings" take hold? Is this episode a blessing or a curse? Listen and decide.
FINDS: Development news, Hamilton on Disney+, Together Apart with Josh Gad goes Back to the Future, the new docuseries Prop Culture is right up our alley, and we lost Jerry Stiller, Little Richard and Roy Horn. Oh, what a week it's been!
