Episode 37: Interview with actor, writer, director, and stuntman Michael Worth

Michael Worth

Michael Worth has to be one of the hardest working men in the business today.  Arriving in Hollywood over 30 years ago and living with his dog in a truck for six months, Worth is the epitome of hard work and perseverance.  A true fan at heart, Worth got his start working in the films of PM Entertainment before moving onto writing and directing.  On this special episode, renaissance man Michael Worth was gracious enough to speak with the show about working with PM Entertainment, his martial arts training, his fascination with “Bruceploitation” cinema, and his latest film for which he pulled acting, writing, and directing duties, Apple Seed, starring the late Rance Howard and Clint Howard.  We also discuss his script for Wanted Man, the action film that he’s been co-writing with Dolph Lundgren for almost ten years!

Major thanks to Michael Worth for his time.  Please check out his film, Apple Seed making its premiere at the Dances With Film Festival on June 13th.  Tickets can be purchased here.

Episode 36: Jill the Ripper / Jill Rips

Jill the Ripper

On this month’s episode, All Outta Bubblegum’s Brenton Haysom is back to help discuss the second film in the Lundgren-Phoenician Entertainment package deal, Jill the Ripper!  In this moody atmospheric thriller, Dolph Lundgren plays Matt Sorenson, a burnt-out former detective who enters the seedy underworld of Boston as he searches for the female serial killer who offed his brother.  If this doesn’t sound your typical Lundgren flick, you’d be correct — it’s not…  Which leads to some of the film’s advantages and problems.  How does Lundgren do at tackling a mystery with such disturbing undertones?  Why does this film take place in the 70’s?  What’s going on with the casting, especially the villains?  And are the various plot twists and turns surprising at all?  Join Brenton and I as we take on arguably the wildest film in the Lundgren canon, Jill the Ripper!

For kill counts, review, and video essays, check out more of Brenton’s work at All Outta Bubblegum!  Major thanks to Brenton for joining me.  Please feel free to rate and review the show on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever else you go to subscribe!
