Episode 203 – “Stalker” – Premieres Thursday, April 21 on Shudder
The reputation of Stalker is preceded only by its director, Andrei Tarkovsky, a quintessential auteur whose attention to detail was continually challenged by a series of production disasters: Damaged film stock, earthquakes, sickness. The film’s mystical qualities have also inspired some to believe Stalker predicted the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, and more eerily, the death of its own director. Tarkovsky historians Robert Bird and Sean Martin, alongside cinematographer Roger Deakins, attempt to separate the facts from the myths.
Episode 204 – “Serpent and the Rainbow” – Premieres Thursday, April 28 on Shudder

Producer David Ladd and actors Bill Pullman and Cathy Tyson recount the challenges and strange occurrences they experienced on set.
