Joe Dante and Tobe Hooper: Masters of Horror


audio To coincide with the start of a month of horror film releases in the cinema and on DVD in the run up to Halloween, Alex Fitch interviews two veterans of horror cinema, Joe Dante and Tobe Hooper. Dante talks about his two latest projects, Splatter, starting on the Horror Channel (Sky / Virgin / Freesat) 24/09/10 and continuing over the next two Fridays, and his new 3D film currently in UK cinemas The Hole. Also, in an interview recorded at last month’s FrightFest horror festival in London, Alex Fitch talks to Tobe Hooper, following a retrospective screening of his first two films Eggshells and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which depict the end of the summer of love and the loss of America’s innocence in the 1970s.

Eggshells received its UK premiere at Frightfest and will be released on Blu-Ray / DVD towards the end of the year.
