On this years annual bonus Halloween Podcast we celebrate the life and career of Wes Craven.
No director has redefined horror as much as Wes Craven has. From his early work such as Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes to the legendary Nightmare on Elm Street or the hugely successful Scream series. Wes Craven is the master of horror and he will be missed.
This week we’ve got three new movies this week, No Escape, We Are Friends, Diary of a Teenage Girl. No Escape and We Are Friends are kind of let downs. No Escape is a movie where you just really never believe the main characters are in danger, but you’re supposed to…i.e. the main characters don’t die, you know they’re not gonna die but your supposed to be scared for them…it’s a let down. We Are Friends is ok, but Wes Bentley is so good in the movie that whenever he’s not on the screen you just want more Wes Bentley and since he’s a small character you spend most of the time wishing he were there which is not good for this movie.
EVERYBODY GO SEE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL NOW. It’s a master piece of a movie and that really everybody should see. That said it’s borderline NC-17 and really uncomfortable…but it’s powerful
