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?
Whilst recording an upcoming ep, Ollie suggested an idea for Halloween and . . . here’s how that went!
We’re alive! This week, Ollie and I tackle one of the classics of monster movie history: James Whale’s “Frankenstein!” Why do we need to know the monster has an evil brain? Why would you send Fritz to do anything? Can you forgive a child killer? What’s the point of Victor? Find out!
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!
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?
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!
