Chattering with Mick Strawn

youtube

Mick Strawn and I discussed, amongst many other things: his experiences of working on Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and 4; Roger Corman's production of Marvel's Fantastic Four; creating the effect of a truck crashing into 'nothing' and the lead actress being sucked into the screen in a movie theater in NOES4; why turning a film camera upside down means the film screens in reverse; the unpleasantness of working on Blade and his role on Candyman and just why he watched a couple copulate for 16 hours.

 

Check out the Dream Warrior Review podcast.

 

For information on Mick's book and appearances, send him a friend request on Facebook.

 

Mick has worked as production designer, in the art department or special effects on many movies and TV shows including Boogie Nights, Candyman, Blade, Leatherface: Chainsaw Massacre III, Freddy's NIghtmares and Tales from the Darkside.

 

He's currently writing a book on Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and co-presents the daily podcast Dream Warrior Review with Kurt Thomas where they review horror and sci-fi movies and Mick tells stories of the films he worked on.
