I’m sure many of you know of Adam Green and Joe Lynch’s fantastic podcast “The Movie Crypt“, which has been running for over three years and gives horror fans an inside look into the industry as well as chats with some of the biggest names in the genre.
This weekend, they’re using their reach and influence to help a cause that is near and dear to their hearts by hosting their first ever live podcast, which will begin this Friday at 7pm PST and run for 48 straight hours. All of this is being done to raise money for Save a Yorkie Resue, which is a volunteer operated dog rescue. Every penny that is raised during this event will be going directly to the foundation.
To make sure there’s enough content during this event, Green and Lynch have released a post explaining the vast majority of the antics they have planned, although they are keeping some of it a secret.
Here’s a list of some of the things they have planned:
-You’ll hear from people like Seth Green (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), Michael Gladis (“Madmen”), comedian Jonah Rey (“Comedy Bang! Bang!”), comedian Dave Anthony (“Arrested Development”), producer Sarah Elbert (‘Hatchet’, “Holliston”), make-up FX artist Robert Pendergraft (‘Hatchet 1-3’, ‘Digging Up the Marrow’), and clairvoyant Marilyn Kapp who will communicate with the other side live on the air…
-You’ll hear improv comedy from Derek Mears & The Resistance (‘Friday the 13th 2009’, “Sleepy Hollow”) as well as from the hilarious comedy duo of Kelly Vrooman & Lauren Pritchard (“Mad TV”).
-You’ll hear musical performances from Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot), Ace Von Johnson (Faster Pussycat), Jason Charles Miller (Godhead), and Jesse Snider (Baptized By Fire).
-You’ll hear exclusive film commentaries for ‘Fright Night’ (with writer/director Tom Holland), ‘Candyman’ (with director and co-writer Bernard Rose), ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ (with stars Sid Haig and Bill Moseley), and John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ (with guest co-host Drew McWeeny from Hitfix).
-You’ll hear short stories generously donated to the cause by best selling authors Clive Barker and Joe Hill.
-You’ll hear live script readings of Adam Green’s never-before-seen/heard un-produced draft of ‘Cabin Fever 2’, a brand new episode from the upcoming season of “Holliston” (performed by the cast), and of course… the main event…
-A live reading of Chris Columbus’ never-before-seen/heard early draft of ‘The Goonies’ performed by an all-star cast including Felicia Day, Jonah Hill, Joel David Moore, Michael Gladis, Deon Richmond, Felissa Rose, Parry Shen, and many more!
