The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds. In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode, David Chen, Devindra Hardawar, and Adam Quigley chat about how excited they aren’t about The Hunger Games. Special guest Eli Craig joins us to discuss his film Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is currently available on VOD and will hit theaters on September 30th.
