I’m big on staying through movies until the closing credits end. I look out for all sorts of things, from mid-and-after-credits scenes to random jokes to the names of the people involved in making the movies. That’s how I came across my newest interview subject, Marian Green, whose name I saw listed among the stunt people for 1988’s Night Of The Demons when I recently viewed that cult classic on IMDB’s streaming service. I loved that movie, and seeing Marian’s name listed in the credits, I looked her up on IMDB.
A look back at most of my articles for Pop Geeks, as well as my previous writing base of RetroJunk, will show you that I’m not really a 90s fan. I’ve often discussed all the pain and turmoil that I went through in the 90s, everything from my dad’s death in 1995 to extensive school bullying to time spent in a mental hospital to the diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome to multiple school transfers, and how I retreated into the pop culture of the 80s as both a form of escape and a coping mechanism for my troubles back then. There was some 90s pop culture that I liked, though, and so I wanted to do something a little different with my newest editorial.
