Joe R. Lansdale has created an incredible legacy, writing films such as Bubba Ho-Tep, Masters of Horror, and Cold Jury, as well as series episodes for “Creepshow (2019)”, “Hap and Leonard”,  and “Batman: The Animated Series”.

Schow, and former Fangoria editor Tony Timpone.

All Hail The Popcorn King has been touring the country and will be released wider over the coming months.

Oppenheimer produced the fan-centric creative event SqueeCon 12/18, produces a podcast, The Grr in Fangrrl on a semi-regular basis on BlockTalkRadio, produced fan film festivals, and is currently touring with  All Hail the Popcorn King.

The new official trailer gives us a glimpse into the life of the brilliant screenwriter.
