SHU-IZMZ RADIO: Interviewing Director DAVID GREGORY!

shuizmz-talkradioDAVID GREGORY, most famous for being a very talented and visionary director of many featurettes and documentaries included on some of the most important films in the horror, cult, and exploitation genres such as TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE SHOCKING TRUTH (2000), THE SPAGHETTI WEST (2005), and THE GODFATHERS OF MONDO (2003), had a chance to talk with SHU-IZMZ RADIO about his latest artistic endeavors of creating a horror anthology modeled after the Theatre Guignol entitled THE THEATRE BIZARRE. Gregory directed the short entitled “SWEETS“, as well as being the creative talent behind the genesis of the whole project and organizing it.  Gregory tells Shu all about the film and the filmmaking process behind it, as well as how he divides up his time between making feature films (as he did with directing PLAGUE TOWN) and running SEVERIN FILMS.


Down a seedy city street in her neighborhood, young Enola Penny is obsessed with what appears to be a long abandoned theatre. One night, she sees that the front door is slightly ajar and impulsively decides to sneak inside. But there in the dark, decrepit auditorium, a show unlike any other unfolds before her eyes. Its host is an eerie human puppet named Peg Poett who will introduce Penny to six tales of the bizarre: A couple traveling in a remote part of the French Pyrenees cross paths with a lustful witch; A paranoid lover faces the wrath of a partner who has been pushed to her limit; The Freudian dreams of an unfaithful husband blur the lines between fantasy and reality; The horrors of the real world are interpreted through the mind of a child; A woman addicted to other people’s memories gets her fix through the vitreous fluid of her victims’ eyeballs; And a perverse obsession with sweets turns sour for a couple in too deep. But as the stories unfold, something much stranger is happening to Enola. Something irreversible and horrific. Something that awaits its next audience in THE THEATRE BIZARRE. 



The interview originally aired on SHU-IZMZ RADIO at CORE OF DESTRUCTION RADIO Sunday at 12pmCST/1pmEST during its normal time slot.
