Content Warning: If you know, you know. Because this is Funny Games. A movie celebrated and criticized for its brutal and emotionally devastating depiction of violence, mental and physical torture, murder, and emotional distress. We discuss these features directly in this episode and consequently not all listeners may want to listen along. Skip this one if you are emotionally susceptible to the discussion of such subjects. Yep, its time for Funny Games. It wouldn't be a real investigation of the Criterion Collection without turning our eyes to Michael Hanneke's unflinching exploration of the damaging nature of violence in modern media. An approach that reads at times gleeful in its visceral mistreatment of humanity and unapologetically critical of our consumption of this kind of entertainment. Can this movie have it both ways? If you'd like to watch ahead for next week's film, we will be discussing and reviewing Terry Gilliam's Time Bandits (1981).
It turns out that while Mike knows EXACTLY what happed to the girls who disappeared on a school trip in Victoria on Valentine's Day 1900, Charlie really doesn't. Director Peter Weir's period-set mystery explores the unknowable horror of gloves and corsets within the restrictive confines of the Australian landscape. Or maybe its the other way around? If you'd like to watch ahead for next week's film, we will be discussing and reviewing Michael Haneke's Funny Games (1997).

REPOST of The Celluloid Mirror Premiere: The Audience Must suffer (Funny Games and Transformers: The Movie) Sean and Nicole are on summer break and humbly present you with a rerun of the episode that started it all! The Celluloid Mirror is a film discussion podcast in which we look at two very different films to see what they reflect about one another and the audience watching. For our first film pairing we discuss Transformers: The Movie (1986), Michael Haneke's Funny Games (2007), and how these two films confront their audiences and subvert genre expectations.

Austin and Tony join me for IF I DIE BEFORE I WAKE, a 1998, rarely-seen straight-to-video home-invasion thriller (good grief, that's a lot of hyphens), starring Muse Watson of I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER playing, of course, the lead bad guy (clearly not a classically-trained actor). Shot in 1996, this hidden gem pre-dates FUNNY GAMES, THE STRANGERS, HIGH TENSION, YOU'RE NEXT, DON'T BREATHE, and a slew of similar titles. Featuring a cast of mostly unknowns, with a shoestring budget, IF I DIE BEFORE I WAKE is surprisingly well-done and well worth tracking down. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/blindragepod/message

Listen as Mel and Jared break into 2008's creepy The Strangers and discuss director's Bryan Bertino's inspirations, the terror of the absence of a motive, the fact that no one is locking their doors again (a cardinal horror sin of Jared's), and what makes the three masked assailants so memorable 14 years later.

Things get comical this week as we talk about Michael Haneke's 1997 version of his film Funny Games. Well maybe not too comical, but we do have a great time dissecting this incredibly interesting work about the medium of film itself, violence on screen, the audience's role in it, and much more.

Are your doors and windows locked? Good. ‘Cos this one is going to scare you!This week I'm joined by Michael J. Seidlinger, author of the new home-invasion nightmare, Anybody Home. You've read this scenario before – invasion, torture, death and suffering – but never like this. We talk about why home invasion is so singularly frightening, about the role of movies and lenses in our hyper-surveillant culture, we disagree on the current state of experimental fiction, and Michael gives perhaps the most startling answer yet to the question of where did the idea for this book come from… All that, plus my rantings on the morality of torture porn, some really geeky video game chat, heavy metal metaphors, and an afterword containing some important questions for the future of this show. Enjoy! Anybody Home is published August 16th by CLASH booksOther books discussed in this episode include:The Shards (2023), by Bret Easton EllisHoarders (2021), by Kate DurbinFrank (2002), by R. M.

IN FOUR FILMS is a series where I bring on friends from the film-loving community to talk about the four movies that made them who they are. These don't have to be their favorites: They can have come at a formative time, have comforted in stressful years, taught them a new way to look at films. On this episode, I talk to critic Cassandra Hager about her four films and get into an eclectic, stellar blend of horror, drama, and comedy. Her picks reveal lessons learned about the movies along the way; it's a fun listen! | Clueless (1995) dir. Amy Heckerling. The Sixth Sense (1999) dir. M. Night Shyamalan. Funny Games (2007) dir. Michael Haneke. 12 Angry Men (1957) dir. Sidney Lumet. | Follow Cassie on Twitter: @TheMovieMermaid. Find her work: https://cassandrahager.carrd.co/ | Follow Daniel on Twitter: @TheMovies_Pod
Mike Flanagan's 2016 home invasion thriller was a rip-roaring good time! He and co-writer/star Kate Siegel put together a film that both satisfies and defies our expectations. An acute awareness of the audience's thought process, combined with the creative limitation of a deaf/mute protagonist, made for a movie experience that is part puzzle box, part one-act play. We are encouraged to participate in the plot of this film, and our strong connection to Kate Siegel's character makes it hard not to. The comparisons to other horror classics abound here: Halloween, The Strangers, Sinister, and Funny Games all make an appearance. Thank you to Amanda for suggesting this movie! We had a wonderfully spooky time. Feedback & Theories: firstname.lastname@example.org Instagram & TikTok: @secondbreakfastpod
It's time for a buzzworthy good time as we get into a movie that changed and really cut into the horror genre: James Wan and Leigh Whannel's Saw (2004)! Character analyses, Jigsaw's motives, Danny Glover being typecast, the legacy of the Saw franchise and how well Saw would've worked if it was a standalone film rather than a series—these are just some of the "rules" discussed in this game of an episode, as well as a hello from one of our interns!
