Then Is Now Episode 65 – Kult Film Korner with John Johnson

In previous episodes, we’ve discussed Exploitation films, which are films intended to attract an audience by means of its sensationalist or controversial content, usually attempting to succeed financially by exploiting current trends, niche genres, or lurid content. Exploitation films are generally low-quality “B movies” that sometimes attract critical attention and cult followings.

Joining us today is John Johnson, a man who has worked in the industry on several exploitation films and has had a fascinating life and made some great friends as a result. His Facebook page Kult Film Korner is a wonderful dive into exploitation movies and more! We talk about some of the legendary B-movie stars he’s met including Jock Manoney and John Agar, as well as his friendship with cult director Ray Dennis Steckler, his show Dumpsterpiece Theater, his work with The Ramones and much, much more!
