Mick Garris has worn many hats in the film industry. To his credit this includes producer, director, actor, interviewer, and… writer. He has made his passion for film, his life’s work, for over four decades now, and is showing no signs of hanging his hat up any time soon.
When it comes to writing, they say, “one should write what they know.” Well, Mick Garris knows PLENTY, about living in the San Fernando Valley, and equally as much about the film industry.

As I say it’s twenty years later, and the aliens want their revenge. Like the tag line says: ‘We had twenty years to get ready“, but the question is, are they?
