EPISODE 121 of the HORRORETC PODCAST

Ozploitation - Round 2

Another great roster of Aussie film picks this week complete with all new content. Exploring the list of titles from week to week was a great way to discover the many genre films the land down under has to offer and served as a reminder of how much we have enjoyed many classics along the way (Road Warrior ended up being a segment unto itself).

Schlock corner covers a short video that made the rounds a few months ago but deserves our attention and Panic Attack is definitely worth checking out if you haven't yet seen it. This is a road to being discovered brought on by the wonders of modern technology.

We wrap up the show with an examination of the criminally underseen ghost story The Lady In Black (1989). It's a throwback to days gone by when getting your hands on a rare gem took some effort. Thanks to everyone for bearing with the repetition of clips in this Aussie retrospective, it was a lot of fun to put together.

Please consider our invitation to send in your reviews of Italian horror selections to be part of a future Pasta Splatter exploration.

EPISODE 122 of the HORRORETC PODCAST

Welcome to another Horroretc audio commentary.

As a kickoff to our extended Sam Raimi director's spotlight we sit down to revisit one of the all time great films of the genre. It's a pretty one-sided argument to say Evil Dead 2 is one of the most beloved horror flicks out there with a truly iconic performance by one Bruce Campbell so it's only fitting that an episode is devoted to discussing what makes this such a fun watch.

Despite our best efforts, things did end up coming down to reactions to the frenetic craziness happening on screen but we hope you take from the show some of our enjoyment of watching Ash and company continue the never-ending battle with those pesky Candarian demons - the deadites.

In an extra bit of campy fun we join William Shatner (once again) giving his thoughts on Star Trek 2009 and lament the passing of a pioneer podcast. (LINK)

Finally, your participation in an upcoming reconvening of the Horroretc Book Club is solicited with some tantalizing prizes teased.

EPISODE 123 of the HORRORETC PODCAST
SAM RAIMI Director Spotlight (Part 2)
From Within The Woods to Army of Darkness - Raimi finds his footing

The Sam Raimi director spotlight gets going in full swing as we take a look back at his 1978 - 1993 works. As many know, the inspiration for The Evil Dead was born from a 1978 short film titled Within The Woods (Link) and it's interesting to find that many distinct Raimi trademarks are present from the very beginning.

Between the Evil Dead trilogy chapters there were a couple films that may be classified as 'forgotten' and 'underappreciated' respectively, Crimewave (1985) and Darkman (1990). We should give out a warning ahead of time - when attempting to discuss the Evil Dead films we failed utterly at covering the plotlines, story structure, key scenes, etc. Instead, we fell into fanboy gushing at just how well these films work for us and why we all have a responsibility to initiate those who have not yet shared the experience. It's difficult to imagine a fan of horror films who would have no appreciation for The Evil Dead.

That said, the gushing comes to an abrupt end when the topic of Legion (2010) is raised. We put out the call again for Book Club submissions and we hope to hear from many members of the community in our forthcoming episode. Finally, we hear from listener misterD who calls in to add to the Tarantino discussion.

Thank you to Rhys, Robb and Laura for their generous contributions to the show.

EPISODE 124 of the HORRORETC PODCAST

Once more unto Raimi for the third and concluding episode of our director retrospective. When last we met the floodgates had been thrown open for us to gush about our love of all things Evil Dead but this chapter has a few more lows to mix in with the successes. No stone is left unturned as we cover horror and non-horror output alike beginning with an eclectic list of films including The Quick and the Dead (1995), A Simple Plan (1998), For Love of the Game (1999) and The Gift (2000).

And then came Spiderman. It was a rare convergence of studio blockbuster mega-project and just the right filmmaker to bring a beloved character to life with the all important (and often missing), element...fun! Three films, $ 2.5 Billion worldwide box-office revenue and a decade of Raimi's career. Was it worth it? We talk about about it. An excellent capper to the whole affair came in 2009's Drag Me To Hell where the gushing recommences.

A fun schlock corner (Link), some more words from MisterD and a reminder that this week is the deadline to enter a great contest to win one of several books up for grabs by sending in your book review for our upcoming reconvening of the Horroretc Book Club.

SAM RAIMI Director Spotlight (Part 3)
EPISODE 125 of the HORRORETC PODCAST
THE HORRORETC BOOK CLUB 2

As a reconvening of the Horroretc Book Club is long overdue we present to you a second episode dedicated to the world of horror literature.

Horror works very well on film as the medium allows for manipulation of the viewer's senses by visual means. The foreboding sense of a darkened alley can be conveyed by controlling the contrast of shadow, movement of a camera, the creeping dread delivered by a subtle musical underscore and many other elements. On the printed page however our minds are free to shape a scene and add all the ingredients necessary to truly frighten, all led by the workings of a singular author. When the words and imagery offered marry perfectly to the internal fears of the reader who is able to visualize and tailor the horror to their own subjective minds....terror is achieved.

In an effort to again celebrate horror on the page, we delve into a whole list of titles be they favorites or recommendations to share some of the vast amount of content out there. Along with our choices, we hear from listeners who have their own suggestions to explore. The book club is joined by Peter Straub who sits in to reflect on a successful career, the process of horror writing and the story of his latest novel A Dark Matter.

And we have giveaways. With six books handed out and a new contest announced (plus still more to come), there's no better time to participate than right now. We wrap things up with some casual banter including initial reaction to The Wolfman and the 10 Oscar best picture entries for 2010.
