Guest Co-Hosts: Josh Hadley & El Goro

Let us tell you of the days of high adventure....
In a truly epic episode of The Projection Booth, we look at John Milius's Conan the Barbarian. The film put Arnold Schwarzenegger on the map and kicked-off years of sword & sorcery imitators.

Along with El Goro of Talk without Rhythm and Josh Hadley of Radiodrome, we explore the fiction of Robert E. Howard, the Marvel Comics version of the Barbarian and the subsequent sequels and reboot to the 1982 film.

Clocking in at seven hours, this is not a podcast for the weak.

Guest Co-Host: Patrick Bromley

Released in 1986, The Wraith was directed by Mike Marvin and stars Charlie Sheen as Jake Kesey, a new face in the town of Brooks, Arizona. Jake makes his appearance around the same time as a dark-helmeted, supernatural figure arrives; the mysterious Wraith of the title. This figure takes out members of Packard Walsh's gang of goofs with his badass Dodge -- using the seemingly indestructible car as a weapon.

We talked to writer/director Marvin along with Packard gangmembers Rughead (Clint Howard) and Gutterboy (Jamie Bozian). We're joined by Patrick Bromley of the F This Movie podcast.
