Phantasm - for Annual Subscribers

Phantasm was a horror hit in 1979, standing out among a slew of Halloween horror trend followers. But Phantasm's success belied its indie production, shot on weekends for a meager $300,000 budget. The film's legacy endures nearly 40 years later with a fifth film recently released. Does this first movie have the balls to still work decades after its release? Donate to keep indie podcast Now Playing going and find out!

Now Peaking Episode 42: Let’s Rock - For Annual Subscribers

Twenty-five years (give or take) after the Little Man from Another Place said “Let’s Rock” the town of Twin Peaks hasn’t stopped rockin’. Perhaps it’s because a certain key to the Great Northern hotel has returned to the town. Or perhaps it’s because Billy is still missing, and no one is more invested in the search than Audrey Horne. Or perhaps because the thorny Blue Rose case investigated by Gordon Cole will lead to that town’s wooded area. But to find out, prepare to Rock and Roll with the Now Peaking hosts as they get rocked by the twelfth episode of Twin Peaks: The Return!
