Brace yourselves as MONSTER PARTY gets maniacal with a spleen splattering special guest!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, roll out the blood red carpet for the director of such classic genre films as MANIAC (1980), the MANIAC COP series, VIGILANTE, RELENTLESS, and UNCLE SAM... WILLIAM LUSTIG!!!
Bill (he let us call him that!) began working in film production in his teens, and went on to pave a career that was no stranger to success or controversy. Pour yourself a stiff absinthe and learn the art of doing dangerous car stunts on a budget, how to piss off an entire country with a single movie poster, the proper etiquette when lighting a man (or two) on fire, what it takes to get Tom Savini to blow up his own head, why Joe Spinell probably got paid more on the Godfather than Al Pacino, and many more nuggets of show business wisdom!
Bill also owns the video releasing company BLUE UNDERGROUND, that puts out such Monster Party favorites as Shockwaves, Deathdream, The Blind Dead series, the films of Dario Argento, and even the original Django movies!
Don't miss this birthday present of episode, with a horror legend who is as much a fan as he is, a film-maker! Great company indeed!

MONSTER PARTY digs deep to uncover the horror genre's most unique treasures!
On this archeological expedition of terror, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD explore... HORROR OBSCURA!!!
You know, those great little classics that may have fallen through your movie knowledge cracks. To make sure we don't screw this up, Monster Party is once again graced by friend of the show, actor/comedian/film buff extraordinaire... DAVE HIGGINS!
You've loved Dave on Ellen, Malcolm In The Middle, Mike and Molly, and on his comedy/horror TV show, International Ghost Investigators: Hollywood Division! But, on this episode, that "love" will turn to "in love," as Dave shares his wide knowledge of obscure films with the Monster Party gang! We don't want to give away any of the unique cinematic artifacts we have in store, but expect to be recommended films that involve a chimp/human romance, split screen murders, bomb shelter vampire bats, zombie creating robots, satanic cannibals, a grasshopper that rides a motorcycle, a very pissed off Spencer Tracy, Kurt Russell, Sea World, and so very much more!
For the films you're about to be turned on to...you're welcome!
