Boo! Hollywood’s Great Thrillers

Let’s face it, movie-goers love things that go bump in the night; those moments that make the little hairs spring to attention on the back of our necks.

In this presentation lastinging a little over an hour, Larry uses PowerPoint images and film clips to illustrate the power of good filmmakers to scare us half to death.

And he’ll discusses why we like it so much.  Cases in point:  The moment in “Wait Until Dark” when the very bad guy leaps out of nowhere and the classic “Alien” birthing scene, of course.

But also moments of intense tension in Alfred Hitchcock classics (“Psycho,” “Rear Window,” “North by Northwest”) and others.

My heartfelt thanks go out to legendary San Antonio-based radio personality and good friend Sonny Melendrez, the nicest guy I know and one of the finest keynote speakers in the U.S., for having me on his radio show Sunday morning.

I had the honor of serving as sidekick and movie guy on Sonny's top-rated San Antonio radio show a few years back. Now Sonny is back on the air with the all new "Sonny Melendrez Show" Sundays at 11 a.m. on San Antonio's 930 AM The Answer.  You can listen live by going to the station's website.

Sonny and I had a great time on his new show Sunday morning.  It was like old times, but fresh and new.

What, you missed it?  What if I said you didn't, not really?

Sonny, always on the cutting edge of radio and technology, archives his weekly shows as podcasts.  If you're in the mood to have some fun and find out how yours truly slowly morphed from a shy guy afraid to even raise his hand in class in high school to a nationally known film critic, public speaker and comedian, click on this link to hear the podcast.
