Midway through the podcast and I'll I am thinking is "God I hope she doesn't mention I, Frankenstein".
Haha- I actually skipped that one earlier this year. From what I've heard, I didn't miss much. ;)
I think you guys touched on a great point, which is that Scream Factory seems to be legitimizing a lot of what has, in the past, been considered bad horror. For whatever reason, the fact that the company adopts previously overlooked or even panned horror films and embraces them seems to have had a big impact on the horror industry. They say it's okay, it therefore becomes okay. It's remarkable: anything they put their label on seems to now get a pass from the same crowd who was hyper-critical in the past. Scream Factory is probably the best thing to happen to the legacy of horror in a decade.
Only problem is they came out with so many titles, so fast, that it makes me worried about what they'll have left to release.
This is the greatest thing ever. And my next tattoo.
"Lethal Attraction" is the French title for "Heathers".
Sean S. Cunningham states on The Horror Show Blu Ray that it was titled House 3 overseas because it was easier to sell it there as part of a series. It was never titled House 3 here in the states. But when it came time to do another actual House film, it was titled part 4 because of this.
Finally finished this epic podcast - could listen to you two talk horror all day.Some thoughts:I completely fell in love with John Carpenter as a person listening to his commentary with Jamie Lee Curtis on the most recent Halloween blu-ray release - she's nuts (though I appreciate her enthusiasm) and I just found him so kind in indulging her wackiness and really taking the backseat for a lot of the commentary. I would pay good money just to hear him talk (considering that's the main reason I double-dipped on the blu-ray I guess I did!) - I can't believe people passed on the opportunity to do it for free.I recently rewatched Jason Goes to Hell and I was surprised how much I liked it - same with Jason X - they've aged well and after 8 movies of mostly the same old same old I really appreciate the departure from formula. I think they're the best since Part 4.If you haven't seen AVP since it was in theatres I think you're allowed to say it's OK - it took me a second time to realize it was pretty much garbage. AVP:R, though a direct sequel, is significantly different and I would daresay better than the original? Not sure if I'd call it good, but worth watching.It would be fun to watch someone watch Planet of the Apes for the first time - such a mindblowing coincidence that they had also built a Statue of Liberty on their planet.I've never seen Sleepaway Camp but I know the big spoiler - now I know you guys still love rewatching the movie anyway, but do think I could still love it and want to rewatch it having never had that first pure experience? In other words, to Scream Factory or not to Scream Factory this at the end of the month?I think so many Stephen King movies fall under the Guilty Pleasure category because the greatness of his STORIES usually manages to shine through the frequently mediocre acting, special effects and just overall low budget feel most of them have. There are very few that I couldn't watch just about any time.Awesome podcast - great to hear from Heather again!
There is still PLENTY to love about Sleepaway Camp even if you know the twist. To Scream Factory.
Stupid question I guess - the answer is always "To Scream Factory" isn't it? :)
I still have a tremendous affection for Dwight H. Little's Phantom of the Opera, but I think that may be entirely due to my lifelong crush on Jill Schoelen. I haven't seen the movie in years, I'm kind of afraid to revisit it because I don't want to lose my affection for it.
I haven't seen it since it was first released on VHS, and that was way before I realized Dwight H. Little is the man. I need to see it again. A Blu-ray was just released in the UK, but I still don't have a region-free player.
I'll never forget first seeing the trailer for Blue Velvet and also a BTS featurette of From Beyond on Viewer's Choice.
I, for real, don't know how Planet of the Apes end.
I think my "guilty pleasure" (or whatever) horror movies would be the Friday the 13th franchise...all of it. Yes, I like them in varying degrees, but I do have some amount of affection for each one of them. Especially part 3, always my very favorite. I even rewatched part 7 this morning (the only one that appears to be available on Netflix Instant at the moment) and thought that it had its moments. Friday the 13th was my horror movie jam back in the mid-'90s, and my affection endures to this day.
I'm with you Patrick, I'm a huge fan of "Dead Heat" and "Life Force". I do have a soft spot in my heart for "Deep Rising" and it's actually the humor in the film that attracted me first.
Firstly I don't call films guilty pleasures. I love film and I dont feel guilty. But I do love some bad films. Evilspeak. Love it. Evil Gentle ben. Esteban. I will return. Data incomplete. Human blood required. Contacting the devil through the internet. This has to be the first film the actual Devil got broadband. Brilliant Evil dead. I always champion this film. It has bad acting. Very low budget. But its fantastic and kind of a miracle it got made at all The Burning. Big mac well done. Camp fire stories. The flying fingers. The first banned film I saw. Nostalgia I know. But I still love it. Its how I like a horror to be
