We are now reporting to you live (sort of) from this year’s Fantastic Fest, the best and biggest genre film festival in the world right here in the galaxy’s capitol, Austin Texas. More specifically, at the Alamo Drafthouse. Today we got Chris, Brian, Diva, Richard and Jason Neulander together to talk about some of the crazed cinema they’ve been experiencing…

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
