We always have fun on our show, but this week we had maybe even a little more fun than usual with this 80’s cheesefest. Listen carefully for Craig’s big reveal.
Wow i had this on VHS i need to go back and watch this thanks guys for another great podcast PS don’t forget serpent and the rainbow
Hi Todd and Craig. My name is Kyle in Bowling Green, KY (hometown of John Carpenter). I discovered the podcast a few days ago and have already listened to a few episodes including The Guest, Ginger Snaps, and the Fly 2. I’ve enjoyed the breakdown of each film and both of your insights into the themes, symbolism, attention to practical effects, etc in the films your discussing. The Guest is a really fun Halloween film. Ginger Snaps after An American Werewolf in London may be the 2nd best werewolf film out there, and I have a similar experience with The Fly 2. Cronenberg’s classic is in my top 10 horror films of all time and I remember catching the sequel on tv as a kid in the early 90’s and liking it but being basically traumatized by the dog scenes. I’m sure it’s not as bad as memory serves but I haven’t been able to bring myself to watch it again due to the feeling I can still conjure from thinking about it for more than a second. Your all’s discussion brought me right back there lol and I couldn’t agree more. I look forward to catching up to previous episodes. You all have gained an avid new listener. I will be recommending the podcast to friends and will place a glowing review. Thanks for putting in the time to make these episodes happen! 🙂
Hi Kyle, so great to hear from you, your kind words, and many thanks so much for the long, thoughtful post! And if you have any requests, please let us know! This is what keeps us going. -Todd
