The Thing Blu ray Shout Factory.pngOkay, let me just say that I really hate when someone asks me for my top ten horror films, simply because it is pretty much impossible for me to narrow down such a huge list of films that I love to just ten titles.

Jeff Burr Interview

While we didn’t conduct this interview, our good buddy and friend of the Krypt, Aaron Christensen did and it is well worth your time. Mr. Burr is one hell of a nice guy, who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a couple of times over the years and doesn’t get the credit that he should. So not only would I sugguest everyone pick up a copy of Shout Factory’s latest release, From a Whisper to a Scream, but take a few minutes to read AC’s interview with Burr.

Just click HERE to get to the interview.
