    CULT-FILM CONFIDENTIAL Vol. 1
    MASTERS OF MIDNIGHT

    Since donning the Phantom mantle for The New York Daily News in 1984, I've had the opportunity to visit with a wide array of intriguing auteurs, a trend extended when I launched my ongoing magazine THE PHANTOM OF THE MOVIES’ VIDEOSCOPE in 1993. Rather than leave them scattered across the expanse of hundreds of columns and scores of magazines, the thought occurred to gather a Butcher’s Dozen (12, with one sliced off) of our fave chinwags with cinematic midnight movers and shakers in one convenient package. Hence, this debut Phantom e-book, where we chat with such genre innovators as Alex (Dance with the Devil) de la Iglesia, Walter (The Warriors) Hill, Patty (Monster) Jenkins and L.Q. (A Boy and His Dog) Jones. While their work ranges across the genre spectrum, what all the filmmakers convened here share is a ferocity of vision and a commitment to quality. We treasure the time we were able spend with them. Hope you do as well.

    dADDY'S BOY
    by JOHN HUFF & GEORGE WALLACE

    Walter Hudley, an LAPD homicide detective prematurely retired, is called on to catch a serial killer who has swept through his community like a grisly death angel in the night. The killer is nicknamed "Goody Boy" by the media. He leaves no traces and no clues as to how his victims are selected.

    For Walter Hudley the case starts as a mere abstraction. No more than a point of pride, an excuse to slip back into the harness over a violation of "turf." But the ghoulish puzzle takes the anti-social reclusive detective on a journey he never expected. It shatters his life, forcing him to face the hole in his soul.

    "dADDY'S BOY" is a commentary on the reality and mythos of the criminal justice system. Its hero is not a super-sleuth but an ordinary "grunt" working without the backup of a deep pockets bureaucracy. He lives - or dies - by his wits.
