Then we’re talking werewolves today with the new horror/comedy WOLFCOP and the newest film from Adrián García Bogliano, LATE PHASES. Finally, we select our very first winner of our monthly Coffee Shop Of Horrors give-away! This episode is two hours of goodness so grab a stiff drink and enjoy.
Brad Henderson has traveled to the Movie Mecca that is Austin, TX for their yearly SxSw Film Festival. There was a healthy genre representation this year, so he rounds up his favorite flicks of the festival. Including: We Are Still Here, The Corpse Of Anna Fritz, Deathgasm, Nina Forever, The Nightmare and The Invitation.
Italian genre cinema is something I didn’t quite understand once I started discovering movies outside the confines of my normal comfort zone. I remember discovering Lucio Fulci with his 1979 classic ZOMBIE and being perplexed at how Fulci could blatantly borrow from other films, but also bring us one of the most iconic scenes in horror (Zombie Vs Shark, people). As I delved further into Italian genre cinema (mostly Fulci: The Beyond, City Of The Living Dead, Conquest) I discovered these filmmakers had no problem straddling the line between homage and blatant rip-off. Which leads us to Bruno Mattei.
We hope you enjoy this week’s supremely packed episode! Brad and Sean spend some time discussing Larry Cohen’s 1976 film God Told Me To (out now via Blue Underground) and Emmett Alston’s 1980 film New Year’s Evil (Out now via Scream Factory). We also go deep down a rabbit hole involving our personal experiences with religion while running down our top “Religious Themed” films.
