You Have to Watch This Movie is a podcast hosted by Tony Rodriguez and Drew Mackie. Each week, they ask the people they love to tell them about the movies they love. Say you were dating someone new or made a new friend. Is there a single movie that, if this person said they hadn’t seen it, would elicit the response, “Oh, you have to watch this movie”? That one singular movie — the one you’ve watched again and again — is what this podcast is about.
8: Jeffrey McCrann Loves Fright Night
In 1985, little gay horror fans got two amazing gifts: Nightmare on Elm Street 2 and Fright Night. Horrormonger Jeffrey McCrann joined us to talk about the latter, a thoroughly entertaining and thoroughly queer vampire featuring Stephen Geoffreys, Amanda Bearse and Herman’s Head himself, William Ragsdale. BTW, there is also a longer version of this episode for listeners who like horror movies but also stories about Barbra Streisand, Faye Dunaway and Bernadette Peters.
