The Movie Crypt

United Kingdom

Hailed as one of Entertainment Weekly’s “Top 20 Podcasts” (Issue #1345 - Jan. 9, 2015), celebrated genre filmmakers Adam Green (HATCHET, FROZEN, DIGGING UP THE MARROW) and Joe Lynch (EVERLY, WRONG TURN 2, KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM) host this informative and inspiring filmmaking podcast that has been called “audio film school” by both aspiring and working artists alike. Showcasing a different celebrity or other accomplished industry professional each week, Adam and Joe lead extremely candid discussions that focus on each guest’s individual journey through Hollywood and their comical, heartbreaking, and brutally honest tales from the trenches that reveal far more insight about the business than any film class could ever offer. Listen, learn, and laugh along with this highly addictive show that has quickly become one of the most popular film and television podcasts on the internet.


The Movie Crypt: Ep 190: Kristina Klebe
