If you read Scott Drebit's Drive-In Dust Offs retrospective on Things (1989), then you know it's a horror film that has to be seen to be believed, and as it turns out, the behind-the-scenes story of how it was made has to be heard to be believed, too. As a special treat, Corpse Club co-hosts Scott Drebit and Bryan Christopher were recently joined by Things star/co-writer/editor/producer Barry J. Gillis on a new audio commentary for his wild film!

Corpse Club members were provided early access to this audio commentary, but we're now releasing it to all Daily Dead readers!

The next time you watch Things, you can press "play" and listen as Scott and Bryan talk with special guest Barry J. Gillis about the making of his unforgettable film, from the unpredictable screenplay he wrote with director/co-writer Andrew Jordan to the film’s bizarre ant-like creatures to the movie’s truly DIY approach to filmmaking, and much, much more.

So, whether you’ve already been forever changed by Things or you’ve never seen it before, sit back, relax, and enjoy a behind-the-scenes discussion about one of the strangest horror movies to ever see the light of the screen… It’s like watching a movie with the Corpse Club... just be sure to save us some popcorn… and keep an eye out for mutant ant monsters!
