If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It

On a very special edition of If It Bleeds, Byrd and Trev welcome Don May Jr. of Synapse Films for their very first guest interview! Synapse has been one of the top boutique labels for cult and genre films for years. We talk at length with Don about a variety of topics, including what it takes to keep a small home video company going, the direction of home media, streaming, 4k, working with directors like Tobe Hooper and George Romero, giving Adam Wingard his big break, the decision behind Synapse's release of Triumph of the Will, and the upcoming definitive blu-ray of the Dario Argento classic, Suspiria! Kick back and enjoy. You don't wanna miss this one!

Byrd, Trev, and special guest the Goat (Hillbilly DVD Reviews, 1980s Movie Graveyard, The Goat Show) discuss the current state of cinema.  We discuss the reliance on blockbusters, blockbuster/franchise fatigue, theaters vs. streaming, the effects of Rotten Tomatoes, the treatment of indie directors on blockbuster films, the "cinematic universe" syndrome, bad movie theater experiences, pandering to Hong Kong, and more!  There are a lot of changes going on in how we view and think about movies, and we'll get into the pros and cons of all of it!  But first, a tribute to the late, great, George A. Romero.
