Episode 102: Trash Film Orgy’s Christy Savage

The Trash Film Orgy (TFO) is a summer time staple here in Sacramento, CA. It's a six week film festival made up of midnight screenings of some of the finest (and not so finest) horror and exploitation films you'll ever seen. Each screening not only features the film, but also fun pre-show hijinks including costumed characters and movie themed sketches. Each year is also kicked off by the Sacramento Zombie Walk, an event where hundreds of people dress up as zombies and go on a parade of terror around downtown Sacramento. 

We were honored to have TFO co-founder and organizer, Christy Savage, sit down with us to talk about how the festival came to be, her beginnings working in public access, TFO's eventual merge into creating their own films, and a lot more! We also spoke with another member of the TFO family, Lauren Weber about performing in TFO films.

It's our big 100th episode AND our 1 year anniversary!
