Interview w/Adam Rockoff on ‘The Horror Of It All’


Download MP3

20151112_AdamRockoffAuthor/Screenwriter/Producer Adam Rockoff has a new book called 'The Horror Of It All' and it's a Klosterman-esque memoir, but it's about horror films and not heavy metal. However, heavy metal plays into our conversation - as does the real-life horror of religious hypocrisy, the PMRC, subliminal images and zombies! With special appearances by prank calls, VHS stores and Satanic panics - this wild and NSFW talk goes to the heart of what real horror's about.
