Sci-Fi Summer of 1986 Series Episode 4

Want to hear this show? SOB must pay!

In 1986 director John Carpenter was known as a “Master of Horror” thanks to his films Christine, The Fog, The Thing, and of course Halloween.  So, even with sci-fi drama Starman in 1984, no one could expect his fourth team-up with star Kurt Russel would be kung fu comedy Big Trouble in Little China.  The film eschewed the typical action hero tropes and failed to connect with American audiences. Like many of Carpenter’s other films, Big Trouble became a cult classic, its popularity growing year after year.  So what is it — big flop or deserved cult classic? Donate and help keep Now Playing operating and you can join Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie to find out!
