Having just won a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Grimmfest Film Festival, and also the Master of Horror Award from the Overlook Film Festival, Garris knows a thing or two about making scary movies. So, it comes as no surprise that the master of horror’s hit podcast, Post Mortem with Mick Garris, is returning for a fifth season with a whopping 30 episodes, plus several Ask Me Anything editions.
The show, which has been previously nominated for multiple Rango awards, features intimate discussions between Mick and his thrill-inducing friends as they take a deep dive into the world of making film and TV. The new season of Post Mortem with Mick Garris premieres next Wednesday, October 28th with none other than Joe Hill! As the son of the legendary Stephen King (who appeared last year on Post Mortem and is the ONLY podcast interview Stephen King has ever done) and the creator of the popular Netflix series, “Locke & Key“, Joe Hill joins the growing list of iconic filmmakers that have appeared on Post Mortem with Mick Garris which include John Carpenter, Neil Gaiman, Guillermo del Toro, Issa Lopez, Rob Zombie, Karyn Kusama, Joe Dante, David Cronenberg, Elijah Wood, Ari Aster and so many more.
“I’m so happy to be back with new interviews with amazing people. I learn something on every one of these interviews I’ve done, and it’s a thrill to continue to add to our long list of exclusive conversations,” said Garris. “From Stephen King to John Carpenter to Neil Gaiman to Patton Oswalt and beyond, it’s a chance for so many of my heroes to open up in ways I’ve never heard them before.”
Throughout the season you will hear stories never told anywhere else, from talent including, but not limited to, Patton Oswalt, MST3K’s Jonah Ray, and Mike Flanagan, who most recently released the critically acclaimed “Haunting of Bly Manor” on Netflix. It will also mark Mike’s third appearance on the show.
