Hope you've all been out enjoying the sunshine this weekend, but in this special Horror edition of Geektown Radio, we plan to take you somewhere much darker! This week we have two interviews with people who have 'horror' based project out right now.

The first interview is with Aaron Martin, creator of the horror anthology series 'Slasher', which returns to Pick TV for its 2nd Season titled 'Slasher: Guilty Party' on Tuesday, 1st May 2018 at 10pm. Inspired by those 80’s & 90’s slasher movies, the show is every inch a teen slasher fest with some very inventive and violent deaths. We got to chat with Aaron on the phone to talk a bit about the show and his inspirations behind it. Aaron has previously worked on shows such as 'Being Erica', 'Degrassi: The Next Generation', 'Killjoys' and 'Saving Hope'.

The second interview is with Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Amdahl of E² Sound, the supervising sound editors for horror movie 'A Quiet Place', which is in UK Cinemas right now. Because the premise of John Krasinski and Emily Blunt’s horror film debut is, “if they hear you, they hunt you,” Ethan and Erik’s jobs were crucial in immersing the audience in this thriller. The lack of dialogue in the movie makes each sound an integral part of building suspense and amplifying terror. We chat about working with composer Marco Beltrami, the challenges of working on the film, and what their job entailed.

Together Ethan & Erik have garnered 7 Oscar nominations and 2 wins ('King Kong' and 'The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers'). They are also responsible for the sound design and sound editing of the 'Transformers' (including the franchise’s upcoming film, 'Bumblebee'), 'Argo', 'Godzilla' and the 'Kung Fu Panda' films.
