We all go a little mad sometimes. Even the Halloweenies. Join the gang in the Multiverse as they discuss Sam Raimi's latest return to the silver screen: the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) blockbuster from just a few months back. You guessed it: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, presented by Walt Disney Studios. Together, they discuss how the universe has turned Hollywood mad, where you can find Raimi's trademark stamp within, and whether or not there's any Evil Dead connective tissue. It's three hours on your (possibly, but probably not) favorite Marvel superhero. So, grab a pizza ball and get spinning.Follow us on Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Patreon Hosted on Acast.

I mean it's an action and horror podcast but that makes it 50% horror right? I'm not a math wizard but that sounds right. Well of course we're gonna rectify this situation by covering his magnum opus, Evil Dead right? NOOOO! In this episode we're covering his 2009 classic Drag Me To Hell, and we're gonna find out if a PG-13 horror movie can actually be good, and not some lame studio cash grab.But before we drag ourselves into that movie we need to talk the trailers that caught our eyes this week. There's a new Orphan movie out and it's starring the same actress as the original. Surely a 24 year old can be a convincing child in this prequel to the original (which was filmed when she actually was a child.) And then there's a new movie coming out called Fall. We'll talk about whether we're falling all over it or if this single location thriller is gonna fall flat on it's face. And of course as always after the main talk we're gonna rate whether or not Drag Me to Hell is...

Night of the Creeps (1986)   An American science fiction horror comedy film written and directed by Fred Dekker in his feature directorial debut, starring Jason Lively, Jill Whitlow and Tom Atkins. The film is an earnest attempt at a B movie and homage to the genre. While the main plot of the film is related to zombies, the film also mixes in takes on slashers and alien invasion films.  Director Fred Dekker originally wanted to shoot the film in black and white. He included every B movie cliche he could think of and insisted on directing the script himself. Most of the main characters (Romero, Carpenter, Raimi, Cameron, Hooper, Cronenberg, Cameron) are named after horror movie makers. The script was written in a week. ​ ​   Night of the Comet (1984)   An American science fiction comedy horror film written and directed by Thom Eberhardt It stars Catherine Mary Stewart, Robert Beltran, and Kelli Maroney as survivors of a comet that has turned most people into either dust or zombies.  The film would gain a cult following and influence the character of Buffy Sommers.  inspiration came from real-life teenage girls whom he met while filming PBS specials. Without telling the girls details about the script's premise, he asked them to describe how they would react to an apocalyptic event. The girls saw the scenario as an exciting adventure and only saw a downside to the experience when Eberhardt brought up the subject of dating. Using their answers, Eberhardt wrote the script to be lighthearted and adventuresome.   Opening Credits/Introduction (1.51); Oh My GOD!!!

Ah, yes - we've arrived at the reason why we held off on covering Sam Raimi for so long…because we didn't want to end our series on such a dismal note! “Oz the Great and Powerful” - Raimi's last feature until the recent “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” - features James Franco in a performance that guest Dana Schwartz (“Noble Blood”) characterizes as “having the energy of a hot boy in a school play who's laughing with his friends in the front row.” It doesn't have the tactile, zippy cinematic language of Raimi's best work, instead opting for the popular hyper-saturated, entirely digital look of Tim Burton's “Alice in Wonderland” (a clear influence). But it *does* have a little girl made of porcelain who almost made Ben cry. Topics discussed include our desire for a Mila Kunissance, Zach Braff being the surprise MVP in this movie, whether “Tinkers” are a specific ethnicity or a class or workers, and the Disney IP lawyers who had to be on set making sure nothing infringed on MGM's copyright of the classic Oz visuals.

Welcome to Botched: A D&D Podcast! Now that the obligatory shopping is out of the way, let's get back to our quest! Having landed just outside of Stanford (to avoid the webs), the group immediately spots a young woman with a bunch of fundead chasing her. After recruiting the next generation in cure chasers, they dig under the web and begin to sneak into the University. Patrick, of course, is staying behind to watch the hole. As per the agreement. The University does not seem to have a ton of fundead just wandering around…but it is quite creepy. There is the constant threat of a queen skittering about, and her hulking bodyguards. I'm sure the party will do nothing to alert her. Who is this mystery woman? Why is she out in the middle of nowhere by herself? Will the group manage to find the next piece of the cure?

This week's episode is the final installment of a three-part series that celebrates the 70th anniversary of Resources for the Future (RFF). In this episode, host Daniel Raimi looks toward the future of RFF, as seen through the eyes of the organization's talented and dedicated research analysts and associates. RFF's research analysts gather and analyze data, review published studies, help write papers and reports, and do it all with dedication and enthusiasm. They're an essential part of the organization's research. In this episode, Raimi talks with RFF Research Analysts Emily Joiner, Sophie Pesek, Nicholas Roy, and Steven Witkin, along with Senior Research Associate and Geographic Information Systems Coordinator Alexandra Thompson. While these young scholars share how they first got interested in environmental economics, they mostly focus on the future by lending insights about the topics they think RFF scholars will be working on in 20 or 30 years—and what role they see for themselves in that future.

Unlike so much of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the newest Doctor Strange entry carries the unmistakable stamp of its director, Sam Raimi, so we're preparing to enter the Multiverse of Madness next week with a film that's an undiluted hit of Raimi: the third entry in the Evil Dead trilogy, 1993's ARMY OF DARKNESS. We're joined by our longtime friend and colleague Matt Singer to revisit a film he calls the “pure essence” of Raimi, which makes up for its lack of deeper themes and nuanced character work with a commitment to fun, cartoonish excess that could be looked at as a deconstruction of heroism — or perhaps fun, cartoonish excess for its own sake is the point.  Please share your comments, thoughts, and questions about ARMY OF DARKNESS, DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, or anything else in the world of film, by sending an email to comments@nextpictureshow.net.

Back in 2002, the superhero genre was still finding its feet. Tim Burton's "Batman" had been huge in '89, but the franchise it spawned had fizzled out by the end of the '90s. The first "X-Men" film did decent box office in 2000, but failed to become a culture-defining event like the Burton film had. Sam Raimi's SPIDER-MAN changed all that. A massive success at the box office when it opened in May 2002, it acted as a bridge between the self-aware, still campy comic book movies of the past two decades and the effects-driven spectacle that has come to define our current "cinematic universe" era. With a masterful control of tone, an eye for staging memorable action, and a focus on character and relationships, the Raimi/Spidey combo was a winning one. For their 20th anniversary revisit, Adam and Josh talk about the pleasure of watching a self-contained superhero movie, and break down some of the film's most iconic scenes.

Filmmaker Kevin Smith (yep, THAT Kevin Smith) joins us to talk about one of his favorite films - 1998's “A Simple Plan” - and to pay tribute to the late producer Jim Jacks, who shepherded several filmmakers (such as Raimi, the Coens, Richard Linklater, and Smith himself) as they made their transitions from scrappy indies to the big leagues. How successfully is Raimi able to meld his signature kinetic style with this film's air of prestige? Was Billy Bob Thornton “the best actor alive between the years of 1998 and 2003,” per David?

Who's Darkman? A man of a thousand faces! A walking fleshwound who probably smells awful! A dude who probably would be into night eggs! Filmmaker Chris Weitz joins us to geek out over Sam Raimi's homage to the Universal Monsters - a film that establishes the comic book style that Raimi would later perfect with his “Spider-Man” trilogy. We discuss the early 90s run of pulpy comic book films (“Dick Tracy”, “The Shadow”), the shock of seeing Frances McDormand in what she describes as a “bimbo role,” and the unbelievably true story of how Sam Raimi swapped in his own cut of “Darkman” when the studio tried to release their own version.  This episode is sponsored by: SplendidSpoon (splendidspoon.com/check) Dad Grass (dadgrass/com/check) Indeed (indeed.com/check) Join our Patreon at patreon.com/blankcheck Follow us @blankcheckpod on Twitter and Instagram!
