Second Class Cinema BONUS EPISODE: Interview with actor Mathew Karedas (The Samurai Cop)

MKInterview  
Listen up! Greetings, citizens!

We are super excited today because boy, do we have a bonus episode for you... As most of you know, Samurai Cop is a much beloved and revered flick here at Second Class Cinema. We covered it in one of our earliest episodes over a year ago, and just recently we viewed and discussed the much-anticipated sequel, Samurai Cop II: Deadly Vengeance.

Deadly Vengeance was total shlock-madness that left us with a ton of questions. So I guess we were pretty lucky that Samurai Cop himself, Mathew Karedas, offered to chat with us and answer our many questions about this crazy piece of cinema. Matt took us on a complete tour of making this movie- discussing everything from how he came to be Samurai Cop in Amir Shirvan’s original picture, to rising from the dead, to what it was like working with Tommy Wiseau. His hilarious anecdotes on the funding/filming/release (and beyond) has given us so much insight into the blood, sweat and pure insanity that made this movie possible.

It was truly a pleasure doing this interview and we can't thank Matt enough for chatting with us at length about his awesome role in B-movie history.

WHAT THE FEST!? Interview with Larry Fessenden on DEPRAVED

On this episode of the podcast, I had the chance to chat with genre legend Larry Fessenden. He was kind enough to carve out 20 minutes of his day to chat with me about his latest film DEPRAVED, the opening night selection for this year's WHAT THE FEST!? 
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN,  writer-director Larry Fessenden’s brings his unique vision of the literary classic in DEPRAVED, set in modern Brooklyn. This meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals.
