018 – Greed!

Ollie and I talk the 4-hour fun-a-thon that is Erich von Stroheim’s “Greed!” It’s got dentistry, finger biting and lots and LOTS of good ol’ fashioned terrible death. Enjoy!

017 – Nosferatu!

Ollie and I continue our exploration of Guillermo del Toro’s “Ecstasy of Influence” with 1922’s “Nosferatu!” It’s an entirely original vampire story that just rips off “Dracula” and gets sued for it. It’s fun!

016 – Häxan!

In this episode, Ollie and I begin our exploration of Guillermo del Toro’s “Extacy of Influence” with the first movie on the list, 1922’s “Häxan!” It’s silent! It’s witchy! It’s actually pretty fun! Join us, won’t you?

015 – “Trollhunters” and “Trollhunters!”

When is a novel not a novel? When it’s a tv show! Wait, what? Ollie and Phil talk “Trollhunters” and the adaptation “Trollhunters!” But, which is which and what is the other one?

014 – Crimson Peak?!?

It’s an episode within an episode! Incepisode? Ollie and I had a weird conversation the other day about “Crimson Peak” and rather than expose you to the entire thing, we decided to talk about it and play you most(?) of it but not the parts that get a little too hot under the collar. It’s our gift . . . to you.

013 – BONUS! The Book of Life!

Things get emotional up in here as we talk Jorge Gutierrez’s “The Book of Life” from 2014. Del Toro helped Gutierrez get this homage to Mexican culture off the ground and Ollie and I are sure glad he did. We get to talk about culture, death, family and cry cry cry. It’s good for the soul!

012 – The Strain!

What’s up with vampires?! Ollie and I talk del Toro’s and Chuck Hogan’s “The Strain.” And, we sure do talk about it. Book. Comic. TV show. We cover the first chunk of the epic(?) tale of humanity’s fight for survival against these del Toro-y whampires!
