Episode 21: Heaven’s Prisoners (1996) & Dark Moon Rising (2015) (/w Ben Gordon)

It's MARCH MADNESS here at Eric Roberts is the Man, so we're joined by former Cineplex pre-show host and all-around man of mystery Ben Gordon to chat about two more Eric Roberts classics! First up is 1996's sweat-stained HEAVEN'S PRISONERS, which was shelved for two years and shows it. It features nude femme fatale Teri Hatcher, Alec Baldwin tears, shotgun murder and ERIC ROBERTS WITH CORNROWS.

All this and the ROBERTS REPORT so stop what you're doing and LISTEN.
