In this special interview episode, we talk to horror journalist/historian Heather Wixson about her amazing new book Monsters, Make-Up and Effects, Vol. 1, which chronicles the history of the make-up effects industry. Listen as we share formative childhood experiences watching horror movies, examine the politics behind the selection process for make-up Academy Awards, and comment on the divide between practical and computer-generated effects in modern cinema. Warning: Contains explicit language and a Rob Bottin sighting in the wild.
Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.
The book is available through AM Ink's imprint Dark Ink at https://aminkpublishing.com/monsters-makeup-%26-effects.
