Chris Gore @thatChrisGore from DVDuesday, g4, “Podcrash with That Chris Gore” and of course Film Threat Magazine has many many hilarious appearances on the Proudly Resents podcast. Chris Gore talks about Planet of the Apes, Logan’s Run, Heart Beeps and gives the inside scoop on the Roger Corman Fantastic 4 movie.
He has a comedy album and children’s book called “everybody Poops.”
Christopher Patrick “Chris” Gore is a speaker and writer on the topic of independent film.
He was born September 5, 1965 in Big Rapids, Michigan. Chris Gore is the head writer and the founder of Film Threat magazine, a project dedicated to covering independent and underground film which he started in 1985. He was also the editor in chief of Videogames Magazine from 1993–1995. During this time, he also made his first television appearances on the Jones Computer Network, the network television precursor to ZDTV, as an editorialist and commentator on the state of video games and society.
He has appeared on the G4 television program Attack of the Show, and had also done a film-related segment on the weekly FX series The X Show. He was also the host and moderator of The New Movie Show with Chris Gore, also on FX, in 2000, where a panel mixed between critics and celebrity guests reviewed movies. G4 then based a recurring gag in an August 2010 episode of Attack of the Show on the murder of Chris Gore, bringing up three potential murderers each furthering the idea that his movies are horrible and that everyone wanted to kill him.
Chris Gore co-wrote and produced the film My Big Fat Independent Movie, a parody of other indie films.
Chris Gore’s books include The 50 Greatest Movies Never Made, The Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide and The Complete DVD Book: Designing, Producing and Marketing Your Independent Film on DVD. Gore also created the defunct Wild Cartoon Kingdom magazine and co-created Sci-Fi Universe magazine.
UPDATE: /Film just announced a new “Family friendly” version is in the works!
The Fantastic 4 (1994) was hidden. Listen to the inside scoop on the infamous Roger Corman “Fantastic 4.” It was a movie no one was supposed to see. The prints were burned. Who leaked it? Why would a company want to make a movie just to shelve it?
Chris Gore was the editor of “Film Threat” magazine. He did a cover story about the production – not knowing the film was doomed. DOOMED! Chris give his insight on this blockbuster bootleg. Everything you ever wanted (or not wanted) to know about the early ’90s feature film. Gore is a movie/comic book nut. So he goes off on fun tangents about all things nerdy. Luckily for us, being nerdy is in now.
I know Chris Gore was on before talking about The Fantastic 4 movie, but I wanted him to get into more details. So to my brother who called me out on having Chris Gore talk about the movie twice, lean back and learn more.
In August Chris Gore asked if I wanted to do a live show where his show “Podcrash” crashes my live show of “Proudly Resents.” Of course I said yes, but I had not idea what I was getting myself into. Listen to the show and behind the scenes stuff on today’s episode.
Chris Gore (From every podcast on itunes) picked “Logan’s Run” as his second favorite guilty pleasure movie. It’s great. Good plot, very cheesy effects (well models and toy trains) and tissue box robots. Apparently in the future, there are no bras. Gore is his hilarious self as he talks about the history of the film and his favorite parts.
This is the last part of a two hour interview we did a while back. This is the turkey sandwich after Thanks Giving. The best part in between some fresh bread.
Listen before that red dot tells you to die!
No more Gore..Actually we might tape a new show next Tuesday. Send us a recommendation.
Next week is a slightly longer show with TV’s Frank from MST3000. We’ll talk about “Valley of the Dolls.”
Chris Gore returns to give the history of The Planet of the Apes movies and his shocking opinion of the “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.” Plus, he reveals the secret of being a TV expert. And the Zach Galifianakis sketch that almost happened.
Chris Gore is on G4’s “Attack of the Show” doing DVD reviews. He’s also the star of his own podcast where he replays interviews he did on other shows. Including this one. Come to think of it, don’t listen to this show, wait for it to be on “Podcrash with That Chis Gore.”
Actually, listen to this show. it’s short. Under 30 minutes. That’s because I interviewed Chris for almost two hours and cut it up into three shows. The next one is the last one. We discuss “Logan’s Run” on the next installment of the Gore Tapes. He came into talk about Logan’s Run, but he gotta talking and I gotta taping.
Chris Gore (G4, “Film Threat”) discusses the best summer movie, the knock off “Fantastic Four” movie that you’ll never see, his favorite strip clubs, dating secrets, beer in movies, The Avengers movie, starting a major magazine from Kinkos, and the best drive in movie theater in California.
Chris Gore agreed to come on and talk about his favorite film “Logan’s Run.” But from the moment he stepped into the studio he started talking and I started taping. Very funny and very informative 40 minutes of ridiculousness.
Plus: “Luggage Tuesday” takes on prank calls in the 21st century. Also, check out the webseries, “Chapel.”
Check out he Trailer for low-budget “Fantastic 4.”
