Episode 27: Slither

27 Slither

We asked, you answered! The audience choice movie this month is Slither!! October had an extra week this month so we tossed the option over to you guys and your top choice was James Gunn’s Slither. Starring Elizabeth Banks, Michael Rooker, Nathan Fillion and Greg Henry, this science fiction, horror comedy was mostly a fun watch for us! Although of course, Randy had some differing opinions. Listen along to see what we had to see about this movie.

As usual, since this is the last week of the month, we gave away our awards this episode. We discussed the Alien Parasite theme overall and gave away Best Cinematography, Performance, Screenplay, and Film. We gave away an extra special award for this month and you’ll have to listen to the episode to find out what it is!

Okay guys, now that this is our second horror-comedy movie on the podcast, we need to decide on a combo word for the genre. Everyone knows there’s rom-com and dramedy, but we think horror comedy deserves its own snappy nickname. Homedy? Corror? Those just don’t seem good enough. Comment below or email in to let us know your ideas!

Episode 26: The Faculty

25 The Faculty

The cast of this movie is so weird, guys. Usher, Josh Hartnett, Jordana Brewster, and Elijah wood are all in the same movie?  Also Clea Duvall, Laura Harris, Salma Hayek, Famke Janssen, Piper Laurie, Bebe Neuwirth, Robert Patrick, Christopher McDonald, and JOHN STEWART. What is this movie. I know that’s a lot of names to throw at you, but I feel like it’s important to start to understand the strangeness of this movie.

This ended up being a great pick for us this month, so many references to other alien parasite movies here! So if you have been keeping up with this month you’ll notice and especially enjoy those.

Directed by the great Robert Rodriguez “Students suspect that their teachers are aliens after bizarre occurrences.”

Watch this movie along with us this week and comment below who your favorite faculty member was!

Also make sure you listen until the end of the episode where we announce what the audience choice movie will be for next week to finish off our alien parasite month!

Episode 25: The Thing

26 The Thing

Ahh, The Thing, a classic! We watched the first one from 1982 this time. This month we are finally getting in to some of the older movies that have influenced today’s filmmakers and we couldn’t pass up doing The Thing for an alien parasite theme!

Kurt Russell and that hair. A reason alone to watch this movie. Aside from that, the tension this movie builds is a great lesson in screenwriting, the beautiful set design and desolate location of the arctic are a thing to behold, and the acting is just enjoyable. All the actors are giving great performances here too. And all that’s not to even mention the great practical special effects to be seen in this film on top of the mystery laced so expertly throughout! Is he the thing? Is he? Is that? Are YOU?

Listen along with us as we review this film for the week! Directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T. K. Carter, David Clennon, and Keith David (among others).

“A research team in Antarctica is hunted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of its victims.”
