The Cutting Room is a bi-weekly horror movie review podcast. We strive to discuss horror movies, and cinema in general, in ways that are insightful, entertaining and deeply personal. Sometimes that means deep analysis, sometimes, lots of monkey business. Sometimes it means personal revelations or shedding a tear or two. Cinema is our mythology. We use it to understand ourselves better. Horror helps us understand our greatest fears and our darkest fantasies
We also have a guest on more often than not. Sometimes they're deeply embedded in the horror community, sometimes loosely affiliated. Sometimes they're just fans. We've had on writers, musicians, doctors, filmmakers, actors, comedians, tattoo artists, roust-a-bouts, vagabonds, and our children.
Oh yeah, there's also lots of shenanigans on this show. Lots of shenanigans.
We make our home on Horror Palace, the number one horror movie network on the internet.
MEET THE HOSTS
Tomahawk Dettloff TomaHawk is one of the oddest film minds working in broadcasting today. His uncanny ability to recall some of the most meaningless actors and directors in the film world borders on idiot savantism.
He has also co-written and directed the independent short JIMBO NEEDS A DRINK and he is also the former lead singer of the rock/blues/punk/alternative bands Moonshine Bunnyranch and The Longbodies.
He believes that the cast of The Cutting Room is conspiring against him to drive him insane.
Joseph Christiana aka Joe Mummy Joseph Christiana is an award-winning indie filmmaker, a published writer, and an incidental pile of bones held together by a flimsy persona and bag of withering skin. Find out what he's up to (when not podcasting) by clicking here.
Below is his short horror iflm THE NIGHTMARE. It's responsible for this podcast in many ways
Max Koch aka Maxsacre Max Koch (pronounced "Cook") aka The California Chainsaw Maxsacre is an actor/writer/cartoonist who has performed professionally since he was 12. Currently, he is a series regular on Nickelodeon’s Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, voicing Master Mantis and countless other characters on the show. Koch also acts in front of the camera. In 2007, he was featured prominently in a massive print, television, radio, and billboard campaign as Hoyt Monroe, a zany spokesman for Pala Casino Spa & Resort. He also has a massive following on YouTube. With his own production company, Bowler Hat Productions, Koch’s projects have included Gramps: Beneath the Surface, a "comic docu-portrait" (a documentary containing illustrations that help tell the story), as well as the original horror short End Times Angel. He is also the host of "Max & The Counselor's Mimosa", a popular podcast he records on occasion. Max enjoys wine, women, and pugs. His ultimate career goal would be to star/co- star/cameo in at LEAST 50 horror films, no matter how shitty.
Here is one of his 'channeling' videos. Spend some time with Max on Youtube.
Jenna "The Queen of" Payne
Award-winning filmmaker Jenna Payne is building up momentum for an indie film coup with a line of projects as diverse as they are similar. Jenna directed her first short film Feline Frenzy in February 2010. This dark comedy/grindhouse thriller toured film festivals and won a Skullie Award at the 2010 Royal Flush Festival.
Working on set in roles as diverse as Producer, Wardrobe Stylist, and Casting Director, Jenna has honed her craft swiftly and eagerly. She is developing a slasher set against the backdrop of the collapse of the American auto industry and is the producer of the soon-to-be-released mini feature The Art of Dreaming. This lush and visual film depicts a young woman’s battle against her subconscious.
Her latest endeavor as writer/director is the Ed Wood-style exploitation webseries called Zompire Vixens from Pluto! In ZVP!, foxy zombie/vampire hybrids attack Brooklyn in retaliation for the declassification of Pluto, which renders the Zompires ineligible for intergalactic aid. Jenna also just returned from two months spent in legendary Hollywood, USA, where she shot a new short called Bot-E’s Revenge and worked as a freelance producer. More projects are materializing down the pipeline in both New York and LA, and she can’t wait to see what’s next…
