Guest Co-Hosts: Mike Thompson, Josh Hadley
There should be only one?
The Projection Booth celebrates our 300th episode with Russell Mulcahy's Highlander (1986), a science fiction/fantasy film in which immortals fight through time until only two remain -- Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) and The Kurgan (Clancy Brown). Though originally a box office flop, the film found new life on cable and VHS before spawning a bizarre franchise.
The film's director, Russell Mulcahy, and original screenwriter, Gregory Widen, discuss their relationship with Highlander. Josh Hadley and Mike Thompson join Mike White in unraveling the many incarnations of the film's progeny.
