Craig Engler

121 – Craig Engler & What Makes a Shudder Movie?

You may be glad to hear I’ve put down the books for a short while, ‘cos my guest is a huge name from the cinematic aisle of the horror world – Craig Engler, GM of Shudder is in the house!!

He joined me for a conversation back in October, when we were both in the throes of the Halloween build up. Now, listening to this weeks later, you can hardly hear the strain in our voices at all. 

We talk about Craig’s creative life and work – from his role in the show, Z-nation, to the helm of Shudder. We debate dream book-to-movie adaptations and, of course, I ask him which films he thinks are the scariest on Shudder. Most of them I’m too afraid to watch.

Books mentioned:

  • The Library at Mount Char (2015), by Scott Hawkins (episode 94)
  • House of Leaves (2000), by Mark Z. Danielewski
  • Night Film (2013), by Marisha Pessl
  • The String Diaries (2013), by Stephen Lloyd George
