Episode 71,  Jun 30, 2021, 08:00 AM

Did you know that PHANTASM and BUBBA HO-TEP director Don Coscarelli was hired to direct Silver Bullet in the '80s? Now he joins Wampler and Vespe to spin tales of working with legendary huckster producer Dino De Laurentiis, getting a phone call from Stephen King while shooting a Dio music video and all of his original plans for adapting Cycle of the Werewolf for the big screen.

Don Coscarelli exploded onto the scene with PHANTASM in the late '70s. That film has many fans, Stephen King included, who has namechecked Phantasm many times in his work, including a big nod in the fifth Dark Tower book, Wolves of the Cala.
