Episode 17 – Suspiria (A Cover Film Done Right)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-z2mjp-9ede18 When is the last time you saw a film that left you speechless? What about a film that days, weeks, months after viewing it you can't seem to get it out of your head? Nigel and Josh had the same experience with Luda Guadagnino's "cover" of Dario Argento's 1977 film, Suspiria. In a lot … Continue reading Episode 17 – Suspiria (A Cover Film Done Right)

Episode 16 – Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Where did all the sexy vampires come from?)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-3sp66-9e3ce6 How great is Gary Oldman? Seriously. He may have been in some bad films, but has he himself ever given a bad performance? It's unlikely. This week we turn to Francis Ford Copolla's creature of the night, Dracula. Specifically, Bram Stoker's Dracula. A film that seeks to adapt Bram Stoker's original novel while making … Continue reading Episode 16 – Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Where did all the sexy vampires come from?)

Episode 15 – Halloween (2018)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-rcmk7-9d9905 October is wrapping up and what better way to end the month than with a movie with an increasingly confusing timeline, and an equally confusing naming scheme, Halloween. The 2018 reboot/sequel/remake, not the 2007 Rob Zombie remake, or the 1978 original. This week Nigel and Josh address everything from John Carpenters original intent with … Continue reading Episode 15 – Halloween (2018)

Beyond The Gates

Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars I have to be honest, Beyond the ameaates is a horrible film. There is absolutely nothing redeeming about it. The acting is stale. There's no emotional depth to any of the characters. The story is filled with massive jumps in logic, and the climax comes and goes so quickly … Continue reading Beyond The Gates

The Belko Experiment

Star Rating: 3 out of 5 stars It's not very often a film can be as violent as The Belko Experiment and also smart. The last film in recent memory that felt fresh and exciting while also having a fun, smart, and intelligent premise was The Cabin in the Woods. But, where The Cabin in the Woods … Continue reading The Belko Experiment

Split

Star Rating: 3 out of 5 stars At this point M. Night Shyamalan is a name that associates itself with twist endings. Shyamalan's breakout indie hit The Sixth Sense set him on a path filled with twists and turns as each subsequent film became less and less impressive. After getting the chance to direct a few big … Continue reading Split

28 Days Later

Star Rating: 5 out of 5 stars 28 Days Later is one of those films in the same vein as Fight Club; its gritty and violent as it explores the dark side of humanity, but more importantly you wonder how so many people could go so long without seeing such an excellent film. It's another great … Continue reading 28 Days Later
