The Chronic Rift: Fall 2010 Sci-Fi, Horror, & Fantasy Film Preview

Posted: Updated:

And the wonderful world of Upstart continues to expand. In anticipation of my assuming the role of movie critic for The Chronic Rift -- the legendary discussion show of all things science fiction, fantasy and horror that's beginning its third year as a podcast -- John Drew invited me on to discuss what genre fans should be looking forward to in the coming months. As you can expect, the conversation consists of equal parts reasoned insight, wild speculation, and geeky enthusiasm. I wouldn't have it any other way.

It's also only half the conversation, since we went on at such length that the show had to be split into two parts. John notes at the end of this segment that part two will follow tomorrow. It may appear here as well, or it may be pushed back just a bit so we can bring you the CFQ Post-Mortem (this week devoted to a discussion of the worlds of Ray Bradbury and William Castle), and the latest episode of Mighty Movie Podcast, featuring Neil Marshall discussing his cojones-out historic adventure film, Centurion, and Daniele Thompson on her wry comedy, Change of Plans. We're nothing if not eclectic here.

If you just can't wait, we heartily commend you to www.chronicrift.com, where you can catch the thrilling conclusion as soon as it posts. (And hear lots of other good eps as well.)
