Well then let’s walk. With a zombie. Ollie and I are back with more Ecstasy of Influence and yet ANOTHER retelling of the Jane Eyre . . . myth? Is it a myth at this point? Because it sure seems like Hollywood was only telling one story and that story was Jane Eyre. Regardless, two things stand out about this one. 1) it’s quite good and B) every movie from here on in is about repressed homosexuality. That’s certainly the case with “I Walked With A Zombie!” ENJOY!
Ollie and I canNOT get enough of that tall monsterman! So, we’re back with Guillermo del Toro’s Ecstasy of Influence to discuss 1935’s “The Bride of Frankenstein!” Is Colin Clive mostly dead? Is the Bride really THE BRIDE? And, just how gay is this movie? A whole bunch or a WHOLE BUNCH? The answers may surprise you.
Ollie and I talk Book 2 of the 1818 Edition of “Frankenstein!” This week, The Monster shares his side of the story, we get some thematically important backstory to an otherwise unimportant character and The Monster gets all whiny and “dudebro-y” about needing a woman. It’s gross!
Welcome to our Halloween Book Club! This week, we take you through Book 1 of the 1818 edition of “Frankenstein” the BOOK! It’s a real autumn read-a-long and we hope YOU read . . . along. Really, we love this book. Join us, won’t you?
