Quentin Tarantino wrote a book! I read it and talked about it for a half an hour. Mostly off the dome but I had some notes and stuff. Remind me to write more but I just recorded the podcast. It's a half hour of me talking by myself. Give me a break! Hahaha update I consistently get the title wrong. It's cinema speculation not speculations. There's only one speculation. It's singular. My bad. So the book is Cinema Speculation and here's.a link to buy it (https://bookshop.org/p/books/cinema-speculation-quentin-tarantino/18273113?ean=9780063112582) in case that's something that appeals to you. Also, I say book a couple times when I mean movie and vice versa. A little embarassing but I'm not going to re-record the whole thing because of that. I think I set myself up for a fall by critiquing someone else for sloppiness. So let this be a lesson about pointing fingers. Or don't. Who cares. Also, the factual error I allude to but forget to flesh out is that he calls Brian De Palma's Obsession a flop but it actually made $4 million, which was healthy box office for the time. But after my blunder with the pluralization of the title, who am I to judge? Glass-house living motherfucker. LOL.
Somehow Troma Entertainment has the distribution rights to the 1940s-style wedding farce Brian DePalma made in graduate school. And Robert DeNiro's in it! We have... very little else.

We're celebrating Halloween season with a commentary track for one of Agatha's favorite movies, Brian De Palma's 1974 cult horror musical Phantom of the Paradise! Listen as we praise the amazing songwriting of Paul Williams, identify De Palma's various references to classic films, and marvel at Jessica Harper's dancing. Listen for our countdown to start your copy of the movie. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and awkward traveling mattes. Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.
Theodore Schaefer (director, co-writer, producer for GIVING BIRTH TO A BUTTERFLY) joins the Video Monsters to discuss the Stephen King film that started it all, Brian De Palma's CARRIE (1976)! It's been noted often, including by King himself, that the surprise success of this film is the reason why King rocketed into superstardom. CARRIE is often cited as not only one of the greatest King adaptations, but one of the most iconic and influential horror films of all time. But how does it hold up today? Is this film actually a comedy? Is Carrie a supporting character in her own movie? Was Carrie's mom right all along about her daughter being corrupted by the devil?! We leave no stone unturned with this one. So come out of the prayer closet, throw your dirty pillows in the wash, grab your prom dress, and take our hand as we find Love Amongst the Stars in our review of CARRIE with special guest Ted Schaefer!

PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE is maybe the freakiest movie from maybe the freakiest director.

Welcome to The B-Side, from The Film Stage. Here we talk about movie stars and directors! Not the movies that made them famous or kept them famous, but the ones they made in between. Today we get a little nasty. We get a little creepy. We dig into the works of Brian De Palma! Conor and I are joined by filmmaker and returning guest Chadd Harbold, whose new film Private Property is now available on Hulu! We also examine the film Private Property from 1960, which Harbold's 2022 film reimagines, along with the new film's De Palma-esque inspirations. The B-Sides discussed are: Phantom of the Paradise, Casualties of War, Femme Fatale, and The Black Dahlia. We also take lengthy pit-stops at The Fury and Mission to Mars. Harbold explains why Femme Fatale is De Palma's best film, why the old, great directors need to higher young DPs when shooting digital, which actors know what they're doing in The Black Dahlia, and which actors do NOT. There's references to this Slant Magazine article as well as De Palma, the superb documentary from Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow (now streaming on Showtime). Finally, we must mention the intensive retrospective of De Palma The Film Stage took on in 2016. Oh, and we talk about the greatness of that Mission to Mars by Ennio Morricone.

Quentin, Roger and guest customer Eli Roth (director of Hostel and Cabin Fever) kick off our first themed series: American Giallo! After outlining their thoughts on the genre, they start with Brian De Palma's Dressed To Kill. A mysterious tall blonde woman wearing sunglasses murders a psychiatrist's patient, and now she's after the prostitute who witnessed it. Quentin, Roger and Eli talk about how the villainous Bobbi affected them, discuss the controversy surrounding the film, and reveal how the story changed from script to screen. Next, we'll look through Irvin Kershner's Eyes Of Laura Mars. A famous fashion photographer develops a disturbing ability to see through the eyes of a killer. The hosts discuss strange plot devices, read excerpts from interviews that shed light on the true history of the film, and hear how Eli would have rewritten the ending. Tune in next week for the conclusion of this two part episode, with Alice Sweet Alice and Happy Birthday To Me!

On this Call Your Ghoulfriend edition of Slashers, Micah exposes himself within mere moments and we are not talking about his tender love organ… The film this week? The 2007 cult classic, Trick 'r Treat, by writer/ director, Michael Dougherty. We could mention that the film was also produced by Bryan Singer, but we don't want to draw the wrong audience to this lovely little episode… But on the topic of the much-maligned X-Men director, this film features Anna Paquin, who played Rogue in like 20 things, Brian Cox from X2, and Dylan Baker from Spider-Man. You might remember the latter played Curt Connors (aka “The Lizard”) before Rhys Ifans. If you want a good horror comic, that MF murders his own son– it was gnarly. Back to Trick 'r Treat, some call it an anthology, while others a nonlinear narrative. I wonder if these turds mention Season's Greetings on this episode. Y'know, the animated short that gave birth to Sam and a bunch of candy-corn-flavored placenta? Also, did you know that Sam is short for Samhain? Must be a big Davey Havok fan… *badumtiss* The film is a clear love letter to horror creators like John Carpenter, Mary Lambert, Brian De Palma, and tons of other who are not worth the metadata to type, but trust us, they are legit AF. Since Jake is writing this description from the shadows, he will mention that there is a comic adaptation as well, written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by Mike Huddleston Grant Bond, Christopher Gugliotti (who also did The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), and Fiona Staples.

A tonally disparate pair of great films for Paramount 1941: Preston Sturges' The Lady Eve, starring Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda, one of the greatest movies ever made, according to Elise; and a real rarity, William Wellman's Reaching for the Sun, starring some important Sturges actors: Joel McCrea, Ellen Drew, and Eddie Bracken. We interrogate the strange central relationship in The Lady Eve, examining its sadistic, maternal, narcissistic, you-name-it qualities, and Sturges' masterful blending of comedy tropes, melodrama structure, and painful personal psychology. Then we turn to the interesting mixture of "universal" (20th century Western) gender tropes and modern modifications of them in Wellman's tale of a man torn between urban opportunity and Thoreauvian freedom. Then, in our Fear and Moviegoing in Toronto segment, we briefly discuss the Coen brothers' The Hudsucker Proxy (1994) and its curious misunderstandings of Capra, and Brian De Palma's brilliant Femme Fatale and its channeling of Lynch and Verhoeven, but with De Palma's peculiar mixture of sweetness and satire.

It isn't quite October, so we watch not quite a horror film. Phantom of the Paradise is an early feature from Brian De Palma that brings together several stories into a rock opera musical. Kieran and Sam aren't sure if it's good, but they are sure it's interesting!

This week on final Brian De Palma episode, Lindsay is joined by two big personalities for a Multiple Personality episode. It's a Double of M. Night Shyamalan's Split (2016) & De Palma's Raising Cain (1992). Both directors are perfect for dealing with this insane material. Both are very visually conscious and let James McAvoy and John Lithgow really go for gold. Also Lindsay and Robb find Hot Dogs hilarious.

This week we're joined by filmmaker Duncan Birmingham! He's a writer, TV producer and filmmaker who helped create the IFC series Maron and was a writer on the Starz show Blunt Talk. His debut feature film Who Invited Them was just released on Shudder! We chat about his relationship to horror as a scaredy-cat kid and growing to appreciate the genre as an adult as well as his job working at Weekly World News and his debut feature film Who Invited Them! Then we dig into Brian De Palma's Dressed to Kill, a film that is absolutely stunning and incredibly hurtful to trans viewers. As three cis people, we do try to tackle the themes but we also wanted to include writings about the film that we referenced in the episode. Articles for further reading on the problematic aspects of Dressed to kill:“Dressed to Kill”: The Danger of NarrativeThe Unintentional Empathy of Brian De Palma's Dressed to KillHollywood's Cringey Transgender EvolutionAside from the trans narrative, we also dig into the stunning museum scene, the exquisitely staged chases, and how Duncan saw it way too young.Follow Duncan on Twitter and Instagram.Follow Mary Beth, Terry and the Podcast on Twitter.

Today we review one of the most iconic gangster films, Scarface. This is a first-time watch for the both of us, so we discuss how we might have come to this one too late. We also discuss the cheesy dialogue, the insane runtime, and the undeniably wonderful (albeit problematic) performance from Al Pacino. Also, why we hate audio-only GPS. (Recorded September 14th, 2022.)

John Travolta stars as Jack Terry, a sound effects engineer for cheapie horror exploitation flicks. When a producer deems the victim's screams and wind effects used in their slasher film as substandard, Jack determines to capture new recordings. While outdoors, his tape captures audio from a nearby car careening off of a bridge and into a river after its tire blows out. Jack jumps to action to save a drowning woman (Nancy Allen) from the vehicle, but the driver dies, later revealed to be the presidential frontrunner, Pennsylvania Governor George McRyan. While listening to the tape, Jack hears a gunshot just before the blowout, suggesting it was no accident. It's revealed that a photographer in the area (Dennis Franz) captured film of the incident, which Jack synchronizes with his audio, proving an assassin was the cause. The authorities and media want the proof, but an assassin (John Lithgow) seeks to silence Jack's obsessive quest for truth. Brian De Palma writes and directs this potent political thriller.
