For the first of two - that's right, two - episodes, The Boys Outta Brooklyn welcome back Dread Media maven and patriarch of the First Family of Better in the Dark, Desmond Reddick, just in time to induct one of the greatest guerrilla filmmakers of all time into The Hall of Great, Great Men. From his first film, the bizarre psychological crime flick Bone, to the Telephone Trilogy, Tom, Derrick, and Des dissect and discuss Larry Cohen's career as both a director and screenwriter. Along the way they explain how Cohen always stayed true to his maverick esthetic, never letting being fired or banned from shooting in the city he loved stop him from making the movies he dreamed of. Plus, tales of focus group marketing, alien emo Jesus, and Fred Williamson is The Hulk! You know you gotta pay the cost to be the boss, so get to clicking!
