Kevin Geeks Out! is a monthly video variety show, which brings together vintage film clips, rare TV footage, guest speakers, experts, games and curiosities. To geek out with Kevin, you don’t need to be a geek, you just need to love cool stuff.
Since 2008 we’ve geeked out with 16 different installments, topics included Bigfoot! – Robots! – Video Games! – Frankenstein! – Batman! – KISS! – Hulk! – and in last month’s show, Vincent Price!
November’s show is hosted by two dudes who have out-geeked me when it comes to Dummy Deaths. They call themselves the Flying Maciste Brothers, and they have devoted their adult lives to examining those quick instances where a stuntman is replaced with a disposable doppelganger; the moment when the baton of existence is passed from human actor to inert fascimile.
Join us as we celebrate Prosthetic Demise in everything from low-budget b-movies to Hollywood Blockbusters, including silent films, classic westerns, Kung-Fu cinema, 1970’s crime dramas, Italian Horror, futuristic science-fiction—even industrial training films. Plus special guests:
• Actor Matt Mitler shows his scenes from 1985’s The Mutilator.
• Director Matthew Glasson shares the secrets about using blood-filled rubber heads in his film The Family Tie.
• Blogger Rumsey Taylor shares his favorite 80’s VHS dummy deaths.
• Actor Kevin Scullin shows how he was replaced with a dummy in DEADMATE.
All this, and dummy-death themed Cupcakes! (You’ll have to come to the show to see for yourself)
