On our show, "Howling At The Full Moon" for our 23rd episode we're going for a real classic Paramount era flick with the 1994 sci-fi/horror gem "SHRUNKEN HEADS" directed by the incomparable Richard Elfman (director of Forbidden Zone and founding member of Oingo Boingo).

May 30, 2022

We here at Cinema Degeneration have declared May 2022 "Rutger Hauer Appreciation Month!" Twice a week we'll be releasing a show diving into a different film from Mr. Hauer's catalog of 175 film and television roles all throughout the month of May. The late Rutger Hauer, who unfortunately passed away in 2019, was a consummate professional thespian, writer, director, and devoted environmentalist, amongst many many other things. He graced the silver screen in many amazing shockers and brilliant films, normally playing heavies and villains and was known for his intense yet subtle performances. His amazing talent truly knew no bounds. For our 8th episode we bring you Hauer's first leading role in Hollywood with the 1983 thriller "THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND" from legendary director Sam Peckinpah. This spy espionage adventure is star studded with such actors as Chris Sarandon, Dennis Hopper, Craig T. Nelson, Meg Foster, Burt Lancaster and John Hurt.  Based off the Robert Ludlum novel the film was plagued with production troubles, including an ailing Peckinpah directing from his death bed (this would be his final film) this action drama is so convoluted that it's amazing that it was ever finished in the first place.  Join our hosts Cameron Scott and his compadres from the 'Last Call At Torchy's' podcast Gary Hill and Lee Russell as three of them talk about one of the most confusing Rutger Hauer films available.
