This week we have one and a half movies. Krampus came out and Sean disliked it and Josh liked it, imagine that. Then we have the documentary about Cannon Films called Electric Boogaloo. It is fantastic, it is a lot of fun, it’s on Netflix. You should watch it now.
Our Top Five are Christmas Themed Horror films and we talk: Black Christmas, Santa’s Slay, Silent Night Deadly Night, Gremlins, Rare Exports, P2, Child’s Play, Edward Scissorhands, Christmas Evil,
For our Undisputed Classic we take on Black Christmas
We skip 1985
Our trailers this week are:
Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice
I Saw the Light
The Nice Guys
“Tomorrowland” came out this week and while successful wasn’t quite the box office juggernaut I was hoping for. The movie itself has a lot of promise but just falls short. Older kids to teenagers may enjoy the movie more so than adults, but it’s an incomplete movie that’s easy to pull a part. From a Madding Crowd nearly puts the podcast to sleep.
The remake of “The Poltergeist” came out this week as well and is one of the worst remakes thus far. They more or less just took the name and put it on a low rank modern PG-13 horror film. They tried to hard to be different from the original while not being original if that makes sense. It was more or less a money grab all around.
We asked our audience their top five 80’s Horror films of all time. “The Thing,” “The Shining,” “The Poltergiest,” “Evil Dead 1 & 2,” and “Nightmare on Elm Street” led the way while “They Live,” “Cannibal Holocaust,” “The Gate,” “Cujo” and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer” were mentioned as well.
Our Undisputed Classic was “The Poltergeist.” All three of us really enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely a classic. We debate the PG rating and whether Tobe Hooper gets enough credit for this classic.
