56: Hobo with a Shotgun with Lindsay-Bea Davis
This week on RCMPod, we're joined by the cool and creepy music supervisor, Lindsay-Bea Davis who helps us kick off Shocktober with the excessive celebration of exploitation "Hobo with a Shotgun" from 2011. She showed up in the living room dressed for the occasion with knife shaped earrings and a skeleton tank and we knew we were in for a solid kiki about horror.
We cover the poetic nature of Rutger Hauer, writing film to music, how winky is too winky when it comes to modern horror, and what exactly a music supervisor does. Cam and Lindsay also kindly explain to Becky everything she doesn't understand. Hobo with a Shotgun is currently streaming on Canadian Netflix, and on iTunes everywhere else. And remember kids, always set aside your music budget at the beginning of your project. Not the end.
This week's end track is "Run with us" by Lisa Lougheed.
