Friday Night Frights Episode 4: Dan Brownlie

My guest on this week's podcast is Dan Brownlie, producer-director of the independent horror movie, Three's A Shroud. I met Dan at a screening of the atrocious Wrong Turn 4, and was immediately impressed with his achievement in producing a horror film shot in London on a tiny budget. Dan reveals how he did it in this week's Friday Night Frights, so why not head over there for a listen. Three's A Shroud has just won The British Horror Film Festival Award so congratulations to Dan!

While you're over at the Starburst website, why not order the latest copy of Starburst Magazine. In this month's issue there is a great retrospective of Curtis Harrington's films by Martin Unsworth; Part One of Hammer and the Stake by Robin Pearce which looks at the vampire sagas of Hammer; an interview with Frank Henenlotter and a retrospective of Peter Jackson's early work by myself.
