Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast: Tribute to Ray Harryhausen

It is not an understatement to say that, for many who work within the industry of fantastic film and those who cover it, Ray Harryhausen was one of the key godfathers of the Sense of Wonder. In such films as Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, Jason and the Argonauts, and Clash of the Titans, Harryhausen's collection of creatures -- singlehandedly and painstakingly stop-motion animated by the man himself -- exhibited a wondrous sense of life, and convinced many of us that, with dedication and love, almost anything that could be dreamed of could be realized on the screen.

Come join our special guest,'s John W. Morehead, as he sits down with Cinefantastique Online's Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and myself to celebrate Ray Harryhausen's achievements and evaluate his indelible contribution to the world of film. Plus: I give my capsule reviews of Sightseers and The Painting, and preview what's coming to theaters next week.
