Charles Band, the grandmaster of Hollywood trash horror, talks about making his “Barbenheimer” parody, his best quick shots – and a babysitter named Marilyn Monroe.
The man has boyish, bright eyes and friendly laughing dimples. You can’t tell that he’s 72 years old, just as you can’t see his job as a maestro of quickly shot, not entirely serious, cheap Hollywood horror. Charles Band made headlines around the world with the announcement that he would use the Barbenheimer phenomenon as the title and inspiration for a horror parody. He welcomes people in jeans and sneakers at the headquarters of his company Full Moon Entertainment in Los Angeles, where he is in the middle of production preparations.
