The Overlook Hour Guest Profile: Bill Spataro (68 Kill, Deepwater Horizon)

68 Kill is a dark comedy thriller that was written and directed by Trent Haaga, who also wrote Dead Girl (2008) and Cheap Thrills (2013). 
"Scraping by flushing septic systems is not Chip's vision of a perfect life. But he's a simple guy and he's got a great girlfriend in Liza. Sure, she supplements their income with a sugar daddy, but every relationship has it's own complexities. When Liza suggests that they relieve her sleazy benefactor of a stack of cash, Chip begins to see a side of her he never knew existed...or never wanted to admit. Now he's got a gun in his hand, a girl in his trunk and less than 24 hours to figure his way out of this mess. A punk-rock romantic comedy for our jagged times."
It's set to be released this Friday August 4th on VOD everywhere! But why am I bringing that up, you may ask?

It's because for episode 50, the guys call all the way out to New Orleans to talk to William Spataro, who is responsible for the special effects in 68 Kill! He's also worked on a long list of high and low budget movies, including Deepwater Horizon, Monsters Anonymous, and 21 Jump Street. Find the rest of his credits on his IMDB page.

You can also check out his work in the music video for Conjure by Down.

Being a fellow horror nerd and fanatic, Bill has no shortage of stories, arguments, and opinions both about movies that he's worked on and watched. And he doesn't shy away from being direct. Follow him on Instagram and check out his amazing work.

But first...

In possibly their shortest weekend round up to date, the guys talk about their experience watching the early screening of the Safdie brothers' newest film, Good Time, and the Q&A that followed. Good Time is another addition to the steady stream of A24 films being released this year, and it's one you won't want to miss... Much like episode 50 of The Overlook Hour!
