El Rey Network Makes May 10th “CARPEN-TERROR” Day With “Director’s Chair” and Film Marathon!



The Robert Rodriguez-founded El Rey Network has done a pretty solid job so far giving genre fans a hell of a time, with everything from original programming (like the FROM DUSK TILL DAWN TV series), some kick-ass exploitation films on heavy rotation and beginning this Saturday (May 10th), “Director’s Chair”, a brand new interview show in which Rodriguez chats with some of his favorite filmmakers. Kicking the show off, is one of the big guns, Master of Horror, John Carpenter! To celebrate the Carpenter episode, El Rey is hosting what is being labeled as “Carpen-Terror”, including a mini-marathon of some Carpenter classics, before the episode of “Director’s Chair” airs.
