Cinefantastique Post-Mortem: Remembering Dino DeLaurentiis

Posted: Updated:

In this week's Cinefantastique Post-Mortem Podcast, Steve Biodrowski and I bid farewell to producer Dino DeLaurentiis, who died on November 10 at the age of 91. DeLaurentiis was a frequent contributor to the cinefantastique genres, producing numerous horror, fantasy, and science fiction films: Danger: Diabolik (1968), King Kong (1976), Conan the Barbarian (1982), Dune (1984), Manhunter (1986, with Brian Cox as Hannibal Lecter), and Army of Darkness (1992). Also on the agenda: a comparison of Monsters to Skyline, two giant-monster movies currently in release, and one more comment on I Spit on Your Grave vs. Last House on the Left.
