391: Critters, with Steven Kostanski

Episode 391

11th March 2023

Steven Kostanski, director of new comedy-horror classic, “Psycho Goreman,” joins us to talk about seminal 80’s “tiny monster” movie, “Critters.”

Episode notes

The listener who entered our Sexy Xenomorph contest under the name “Do Critters Next” asked us to “Do Critters next,” so we did Critters next, which has ceased to become “next” and is now now. And who better to join us for this slice of silly 80s monster horror than a man whose own films bear the influence of that horror decade, Stephen Kostanski, the director of Psycho Goreman, the movie that turned Stuart Wellington into a brain in a tube.
