On the 177th episode of Piecing It Together, Darryl Armstrong from Rise Up Daily and the CyberShorts Film Festival joins me to talk about a movie that’s already proving to be a modern cult classic, The Empty Man. “Dumped” in theaters during the pandemic by a studio that had no idea what to do with it, The Empty Man is a big horror movie with a lot of interesting, if somewhat messy ideas. Puzzle pieces include Seven, Alien, Kill List and The Happening.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for The Empty Man and the movies we discuss!
