    I’m going to have to disagree about the comedies. I find some of the apatow films (such as 40 year old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad) way funnier and rewatchable than anything like Porkies. The issue I have with 80s films is that the characters aren’t important and just service the joke.

    Great year of podcasts!

    One Christmas horror movie (or segment in a horror movie) that preceded BLACK CHRISTMAS was “And All Through the House” in TALES FROM THE CRYPT from 1972. This had Joan Collins and was one of the best stories of the movie. It was based on an EC horror comic story from the 50’s and was remade as one of the first episodes of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT tv series.

    One thing I like about the fellatio joke from the original Black Christmas is that it takes so long for the joke to really pay off. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the movie, but it’s at least a good 20 minutes before the one cop hands the phone number to Saxon… and the look on Saxon’s face when he reads the number is gold. That joke would be “one and done” in a modern script.

    Brad’s advocacy of the remake has changed my mind about seeing it. If I ever find a copy of it, I will pick it up.
