Scarred For Life / Episode 94: DimLand Director Peter Collins Campbell and The Iron Giant (1999)

Listen on

Episode notes

Fresh off its debut at the Chattanooga Film Festival, DimLand director Peter Collins Campbell stops by to chat filmmaking, his lack of horror experience and his Miyazaki and McKean influence. Then we talk nuclear holocaust, doom anxieties and a giant robot who just wants to be loved as we revisit The Iron Giant (1999), a movie that has affected all three of us in different ways. From the film and the book's inspirations to chosen families to fake patriotism to beatniks and sundaes filled with laxatives, we cover it all. We laugh, we get emotional. It's a roller coaster, y'all.
