A Strange Idea of Entertainment: Conversations with Tom McLoughlin By Joseph Maddrey, Tom McLoughlin Cover Image


Tom McLoughlin's reel life began in 1957 at the age of seven, making 8mm movies in the back lots of MGM studios. He was a magician during the 1950s, a Rock musician in the 1960s (opening for groups such as The Doors), a mime in the 1970s (studying in Paris with Marcel Marceau), and an Emmy Award-nominated writer for his work with Dick Van Dyke & Company. In the 1980s, Tom fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a filmmaker. He has directed more than forty feature film and television projects, including Friday the 13th: Jason Lives and the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated miniseries In a Child's Name. Today he continues to pursue his eclectic passions, touring worldwide as the lead singer of the Rock band The Sloths while preparing for postmortem appearances at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. This is the behind-the-scenes story of the strange business of creative obsession . . . and one man's strange idea of entertainment.
