This week, director Steve Mitchell (Chopping Mall) joins us to talk about his documentary King Cohen, about the career of maverick filmmaker Larry Cohen, from his earliest creations like the TV series The Invaders, to It’s Alive, Q: The Winged Serpent, and more.
Steve talks about meeting Larry and discovering how extensive his career and creations have been, about interviewing Hollywood talents who’ve worked with him, like Michael Moriarty, Fred Williamson, Joe Dante, Barbara Carrera, Mick Garris, and about his prolific story and screenwriting habits. The documentary won Best Documentary Feature at the 2017 Fantasia Fest, and is in theaters in limited markets (opens in New York on August 3), on VOD and digital now.
