TGB Episode 75: Tales of Guillermo del Toro (Guest: Sam Zimmerman)

August 24, 2011

TGB - Eli Craig / Guillermo del Toro

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by Sam Zimmerman from Fangoria to talk their latest Picks of the Week, new DVD & Blu-Ray releases, trailers for Trespass and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, and more. The guys also interview Eli Craig (left above), director of horror-comedy Tucker & Dale vs Evil during the show. The main topic was a discussion on the filmography and legacy of Guillermo del Toro, in honor of Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. The guys go through his various works as a directo and producer and talk about some of the upcoming projects he has on his plate. Listen in!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!
