Episode 8: The Nature of the Beast (1995) & Doc Holliday’s Revenge (2014) (/w Tonjia Atomic)

SIX! SIX! SIX! THE NATURE OF THE BEAST! Yeah, we’re back, and this time.. it’s personal. Fueled by Eric Roberts following us on Twitter (and our inevitably cease & desist letter), Episode 8 finds us in a contemplative mood as we discuss 1995’s THE NATURE OF THE BEAST (along with its controversial director) and 2014 DOC HOLLIDAY’S REVENGE (aka STRANDED), which is only controversial for being absolutely terrible. We are joined by the luminescent Tonjia Atomic, who is really way too talented to be stuck talking about Eric Roberts movies for 90 minutes, yet here we are! This one is a little late, but it’s worth the wait. And you don’t want to miss what’s coming next!

As always, check out ERIC ROBERTS IS THE MAN on Twitter, or come chat ER (or anything else) on our Facebook group.

As always, The Roberts Report was JAM PACKED. Discussed were:

The teaser trailer for the upcoming HP Lovecraft-inspired film BLACK WAKE directed by Jeremiah Kipp. The film features Tom Sizemore, Nana Gouvea and – of course – Eric Roberts. And it just finished production!

We also discussed an upcoming ER appearance in the TV show THE PLAYER starring Wesley Snipes as a former intelligence officer working as a security expert in Las Vegas. HOW WONDERFUL.

And we talked briefly about the Bill Duke-directed Nat Turner biopic NAT TURNER: STORY OF A PROPHET featuring Keith David, Blair Underwood, Mike Epps and ERIC ROBERTS. Let’s hope the movie is better than this weird poster.
