We're joined by Eli Craig, writer/director of Tucker & Dale Versus Evil, and Netflix’s Little Evil, an offbeat comedy about love, family, and The Antichrist. Little Evil stars Adam Scott as Gary, a newlywed struggling to acclimate to the role of stepfather to his disturbingly bizarre step-son, Lucas. Even as his therapy sessions with other step-dads assure him that all children are a little evil, increasingly odd situations drive Gary to believe Lucas might actually be the spawn of Satan.

Kevin discusses how this new project came together, the continued joys of working on the TMNT franchise, and how he is just as big a fan of toys and collectibles as the fans he creates them for.
