On this episode, NHE host Scott Murphy chats to director Sophia Cacciola about her mockumentary (co-directed with Michael J Epstein), The Once and Future Smash, and the movie that “inspired” it, End Zone 2.

During the interview, Scott talks to Sophia about the broken-up shoot of the film, horror convention politics, and how the mythology for Smash-Mouth came about.
