Saturday Frights Podcast – Episode 001 (The Twilight Zone 1985’s Dead Run)


Welcome friends to the debut of the Saturday Frights Podcast! Each week my co-host, the Projectionist, and I will discuss a particular horror movie or horror themed TV episode from the Retroist Vault and for this first outing we have chosen a segment from the 1985 Twilight Zone revival entitled “Dead Run”. We will talk in detail about the segment’s story as well as some of the notable actors and crew behind the camera. The Projectionist has also brought along a few vintage Drive-In movie ads for your listening enjoyment. We certainly hope that you’ll enjoy the podcast and I bet there will be a bit of change in the coming months as we tweak the show, so please bear in mind this is something of a work in progress.

If you have any suggestions for topics you would like for us to cover in the future or comments, email them to me at VicSage@Retroist.Com. You can also follow me on Twitter and on Facebook. The Projectionist may be reached at if you have any comments or questions for the shadowy cinephile from Haddonfield.

Music on the show was provided by Peachy (the Penderecki of Wales), if you have musical needs, why not contact Peachy at And “like” him on his Facebook Page.
