Bonus! – October Announcement!

Whilst recording an upcoming ep, Ollie suggested an idea for Halloween and . . . here’s how that went!

021 – Vampyr!

Let’s get DREAMY! It’s Carl Th. Dreyer’s “Vampyr” and we are stoked! This is the trippiest film we’ve covered so far and we are both surprisingly on board for it. There’s everything in this movie: shadows, giant heads, death by flour . . . vampires? Maybe. Anyway, check it out!

Bonus! – “Freaks” with Lil!

It’s a BONUS EPISODE! No, I haven’t forgotten about the whole “bi-weekly” thing, I swear. But, Ollie’s friend Lil watched “Freaks” and really wanted to talk about it! So . . . I have no part in this. Give it a listen!

And, visit Lil’s page!

020 – Freaks!

“Gooble Gobble!” everyone! This week, Ollie and I learn to not make fun of differently abled people, because you could end up . . . different yourself? It’s Tod Browning’s “Freaks” from 1932 and is it ever a trip! Like a good trip. It’s good.

019 – Frankenstein!

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!

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!
