HAPPY HALLOWEEN! IN this second half of our discussion with writer James Ninness, we go spelunking with the ladies of "The Descent", the Neil Marshall-directed film from 2005. Besides being painfully claustrophobic at times, this movie utilizes some aspects of the found-footage genre very effectively. See what we all thought of this 'underground' horror movie. (see what I did there?) Enjoy!
Friend of the show, and occasional guest, writer James Ninness joins us this Scare-a-mental month with one of my two favorite films of all-time, "Alien." We dive deeply into why we all think what we do about this sci-fi/horror masterpiece. pretty much says it all. Enjoy!
In the second half of our discussion with Starlight Runner'd CEO, Jeff Gomez, we watch and assess Panos Cosmatos' "Mandy." A true career pivot for Nic Cage and a powerful film which draws an slight comparison with "From Dusk 'til Dawn"? You better just listen in as two of our hosts have never seen this one before. Enjoy!
After overcoming another lengthy computer issue, we return with the first of a slew of new episodes to help celebrate the Halloween season. First up, our old pal, Jeff Gomez, CEO of Starlight Runner rejoins us with a couple of his favorite horror films. First up, the modern masterpiece that is "The Exorcist." It has been and will remain on of the scariest films ever created and you should listen into Jeff's thoroughly modern views on this nearly (yikes) 50 year old film. Enjoy!
We are in full-blown 'Scare-A-Mental mode, and will be posting new horror movie episodes all month long. First up, special guest Writer/Artist/Creator Dean Haspiel drops one of the most polarizing sequels of all time into our laps. The second sequel to one of the most celebrated horror films ever, William Peter Blatty's "The Exorcist III." We've all seen it, and we all have our own thoughts. Listen in and see where we land on this one. Enjoy!
In the second half of our discussion with Writer/Composer/Director Darren Callahan, we chat about the second of two Mario Bava films from the sixties. Despite the bizarre title, "Kill Baby Kill", this one is more gothic in feel and much more reminiscent of the Hammer Studios films of the time. Listen in now to to part two of our Bava dissection and see what we like and don't like about this field of cinema. Enjoy!
Well, It's that time of year again. When the leaves change and the autumnal breeze brings a chill down one's spine. That's right, I'm talking about SCARE-A-Mental! Lot's of great horror films to digest this year and spit back out for you to ingest and hopefully discover something new. First up, screenwriter/musician Darren Callahan rejoins us with the first of two films by the great Mario Bava, a legend of Italian horror cinema. "Blood and Black Lace" kicks us off this fine October day. Curl up next to the fire and enjoy!
