I posted a little over a week ago about the films of John Landis appearing at BAM in conjunction with a recent interview of Landis that aired on Citywide last night. The series ended last night, but listen to the interview at the end of this post to hear John Landis himself discuss his work in movies over the last 50 years as well as his new book Monsters in the Movies: 100 Years of Cinematic Nightmares. The book is a blast. You can sit down and immerse yourself in the history and production process behind one of the most fantastic and emotionally provocative aspects of today’s culture, but it is just as easy to relax and casually flip through the hundreds of nostalgic, high-quality pictures the book contains. It’s great for hanging out with a friend and together appreciating the joy and excitement of movie monsters.

Here is a very good review of the book, but check out the interview to hear John Landis discuss it in his own words-

For a taste of John Landis’s work and for the helluvit, here’s the music video to Thriller-
