Joe Dante hosts a marathon of horror on Scream Factory TV

News, Press Releases

Joe Dante is a legend in filmmaking having made The Howling, Gremlins, Pirahna and The ‘Burbs. He’s also become one of the great raconteurs when it comes to talking about the history of horror films. Scream Factory TV is letting Joe Dante share his love of the genre when he hosts a marathon of films on Scream Factory TV (which is a free streaming station). I’m looking forward to hearing Joe Dante talk about Mantan Moreland’s performance in King of the Zombies. This is the perfect way to spend the Saturday evening during Labor Day weekend. Here’s the press release from Shout Factory with all the details:
