Welcome to The Witching Hour! Collider’s horror podcast, co-produced and co-hosted by Editor and Horror Lead Haleigh Foutch and Senior Editorial Producer Perri Nemiroff. On this week’s episode, we welcome Zombieland and Zombieland: Double Tap director Ruben Fleischer to talk about the ten-year journey to receiving the zom-com sequel created and what it was like ultimately receiving the gang back with each other.
The filmmaker chats about the original Zombieland two concept and why it didn’t perform, what it took to pull of Double Tap’s killer “one-take” action scene, introducing newcomers like Zoey Deutch and Rosario Dawson, and why his entry-point to the franchise was normally comedy more than horror. Following the interview, Haleigh and Perri spitball about their Zombieland fantasy destinations, the very best car or truck for battling the undead, and who would make the very best badass apocalypse companion.
On top of that, this week brings one more Witching Hour giveaway and this one’s a single of Haleigh and Perri’s favorites of the year — Alexandre Aja’s outstanding creature function Crawl. A single fortunate winner will take house a Crawl prize pack, such as a signed Blu-ray, some storm survival gear, and alligator jerky (that’ll show ‘em). Second prize winners will score a copy of the Blu-ray.
