As a special Halloween treat, Heather Wixson is joined by special guest William Malone on our latest episode of Corpse Club!
Filmmaker William Malone joins Heather Wixson on this special episode of Corpse Club! Listen as Malone reflects on his compelling cinematic journey, which began with working at Don Post Studios, where he sculpted the Captain Kirk Star Trek mask and helped customize it to create the iconic Michael Myers mask for John Carpenter's Halloween. Malone discusses how he then broke into the film industry as a director with his early movies Scared to Death and Creature, which helped kickstart a career that ultimately led to his remake of House on Haunted Hill.
With the bold reimagining of William Castle's classic horror film celebrating its 20th anniversary this Halloween season, Malone looks back on the making of his star-studded 1999 film, and he also talks about his eclectic work behind the camera on a wide range of TV series, including Freddy's Nightmares, Tales From the Crypt, and "The Fair Haired Child" installment on Masters of Horror. In addition to reflecting on his past projects, Malone also looks ahead to future frights and discusses his upcoming film, Thallium's Box.
