184 – Joshua Hull & It’s a Whole Hole Thing

Never mind the floor is lava. This week the ground has teeth.

Joshua Hull is our guest, to talk about his obsession with dangerous, weird holes. He wrote one into his hilarious, grisly horror movie, Glorious (on Shudder) and now he’s given a hole a whole personality in his debut novella, Mouth. 

It’s a grindhouse, b-movie celebrations, with larger than life characters, grisly death, and the most lovable monster of the year. 

We talk about writing endearing creature features, about forgotten American serial killers, about the difference between writing for books and writing screenplays and, yes, about HOLES!


Mouth was published on March 15th by Tenebrous Press
