Hundreds Of Pixelated Dead Bodies

All Units is an anatomy of the thriller. Every two weeks Sean McTiernan creates a double bill in the hopes of exploring and understanding another aspect of thriller cinema.

Every other week, Calling All Units will answer questions from listeners, the host and, if necessary, the authorities.

If you keep a running list of movies you want to watch, prepare for it to get much, much longer.
