The Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies is proud to open its LA branch with a career talk with one of the most important independent directors of American genre cinema, the man whose imagination brought us The Tall Man, whose KENNY & COMPANY and PHANTASM gave pre-teen genre fans an indelible image of empowerment in the form of actor Michael Baldwin, and who adapted the books BUBBA HO-TEP and JOHN DIES AT THE END into instant cult classics.

With a new biography on the horizon – True Indie: Life and Death in Filmmaking, due out October 2 – Don Coscarelli has agreed to sit down with us at Miskatonic, and over the course of a three-hour discussion with Dead Right Horror Trivia’s Jared Rivet, will explore the key influences, collaborators and filmmaking lessons of his life, from being a young filmmaker navigating Hollywood to dealing with themes of loss, aging and brotherly companionship in his films, his deviation from the genre with SURVIVAL QUEST and the BEASTMASTER film, having the esteemed honor of being a part of the Masters of Horror gang and the current state of the business.
