On this edition of Parallax Views, the 1989 horror film Society has become a cult classic for it's wild mix of body horror, dark humor, satire of high society, and class warfare politics. Joining us to discuss that movie, as well as his work on other horror movies past and present, is the film's co-write Zeph E. Daniel. In the second hour, Zeph and I discuss his return to screenwriting with the 2021 horror/thriller GIRL NEXT, a story of a young woman's fight to survive after being kidnapped by human traffickers that gets very strange when demonic entities, body-altering drugs, quantum physics, and a sinister MKULTRA-style government experiment are thrown into the plot's mix. Among the topics covered in our conversation: - How Zeph became involved in screenwriting and early sci-fi writing - Working with producer/director Brian Yuzna, known for his body-horror films including the Re-Animator franchise and Society - How Society's initial story involved a Satanic cult rather than strange, alien-like shapeshifting beings posing as rich humans in Beverly Hills - Satirizing the shallowness of the wealthy and Beverly Hills culture - Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation and it's witchcraft plot involving the demon Lilith - The length of the filming shoot for the Yuzna-made movies Zeph worked on - Zeph's thoughts on Bride of Re-Animator - The class warfare element of Society, Zeph's interview with the left-wing publication Jacobin, and the exploitation of the poor by the rich in Society's story - Actress Devin DeVasquez's "Clarissa" character in Society - The differences between Zeph's original story for Society and the movie itself - Special effects artist Screaming Mad George and the infamous "The Shunting" ritual scene in Society - Girl Next and the story of how Zeph formed Crazed House Ltd. with director Larry Wade Carell - Zeph's belief in spiritual warfare - Zeph's thoughts and feelings on his work being rejected by the Christian community despite his being a born again Christian; the story of how his evangelical Christian novel Lamb was rejected by the Christian community; the fear of creativity that exists within some Christian circles - The next Crazed House Ltd. movie and the big name horror star legend that'll have a voice role in the film - Experiences at Texas Frightmare Weekend - Problems with wanting to express one's authentic creative self and still getting funding to make a movie - Sex in cinema; the sexual scenes in Girl Next - An explanation of the body-altering drug that's central to Girl Next's plot; how quantum physics and simulation theory play into Girl Next and it's upcoming sequels - Zeph's "Special Thank You" credit in the serial killer movie Ed Gein starring Steve Railsback (The Stuntman; Helter Skelter) - How Zeph works with people who do not share his beliefs about religion or his personal story - The cult classic status of Society today and the different types of people that have come to love the film - Society as a movie that was soft banned in the U.S. but very popular in Europe - Zeph's speculations on what happened to Society's protagonist Bill Whitley (played by Billy Warlock) after the events of the story - The trials and tribulations of making Girl Next - Zeph's early experiences on the radical left - Power elites and oppression of working people - The infamous "The rich have always sucked off low-class shit like you" line in Society that crystalizes it's class conflict themes - And much, much more!

The Video Monsters share their thoughts on the 14th annual Knoxville Horror Film Festival, which ran from Oct. 20th - 23rd at the Parkway Drive-In and Central Cinema in Knoxville, TN. From canonical classics like CREEPSHOW, FRIGHT NIGHT (1985), ARMY OF DARKNESS, RE-ANIMATOR, and FROM BEYOND; to the FULCI LIVES triple feature; to some of biggest genre hits on this year's festival circuit like KIDS VS ALIENS, HUESERA, TIMEKEEPERS OF ETERNITY, and SOMETHING IN THE DIRT; the folks at Central Cinema once again crushed it with this year's fest. They were even considerate enough to program future Christmas horror classics like THE WOODSMAN, THE LEECH, and CHRISTMAS BLOODY CHRISTMAS so that we could release this episode in December and it still be seasonally appropriate (OK, so maybe that isn't why they picked these killer holiday flicks but isn't it nice how things worked out?) So grab your R.I.P pass, hit the concession stand, snag some Central Cinema merch and meet us in Knoxville because it's time to celebrate BOTH of the most wonderful times of the year with our coverage of the 2022 Knoxville Horror Film Festival!

After an amazing start to November with our RoboCop episode we decided to keep the action train chugging strong with this week's selection....Universal Soldier! The movie our generations will always remember as one of the greatest crossover events in the action genre with Jean Claude Van Damme sharing the spotlight with Dolph Lundgren. But something else became apparent while recording this episode, Charlie and Nate inadvertently had what appears to be a theme for the past month or so. Starting with Sleepy Hollow, Underworld, Evil Dead 2, End of Days, Re-Animator, RoboCop, and now Universal Soldier...what do all of these movies have in common you ask (besides being badass)...well, they're all about resurrecting the previously deceased!!!!!

Alexis reviews a classic cult horror film that Dawn assigned her: Re-Animator. Based on an H.P. Lovecraft story, this 1985 film has her confused, scared and grossed out. Find out which movie Alexis has assigned Jason!
In the finale of their fall "Spooktacular", Brad, Gus, and Adam discuss the insane, highly entertaining, endlessly quotable cult film. The What are you Watching? segment includes discussions of The Midnight Club, Everything Everywhere all at Once, and Killer Sally. email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Acomi and Turk182 asks: What if someone made a low budget knockoff version of Reanimator (1985) - before the movie came out -, kept all the gore, and cut out all the good story elements? Then you'd have this charming film from New Zealand, starring the great Michael Hurst, Death Warmed Up (1984). For people who want their death hot enough to eat, but not so hot that it burns their mouth. After being hypnotized into killing his parents and spending years locked in a cuckoo clock, Michael Tucker (played by Michael Hurst, who later played Iolaus in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys TV series), is released and seeks revenge. Little does he know, that all these years later, the mad doctor that set him up has been experimenting with bringing the dead back to life and turning them into deformed monsters that with an explosively short lifespan. Now, trapped inside the madman's Patrick Nagel and Robert Palmer music video-esque hospital, Michael (played by Michael) and his friends must escape the deformed living dead. But, revenge, first! Join Acomi and Turk as they marvel at the beautiful scenery, the rich culture, the lack of exploded goats, and the utterly confusing plot of a movie that has no right to be as oddly entertaining as it is. Set your microwave to half power and the timer to 2 minutes, and Let's Watch! Death Warmed Up (1984)! Acomi and Turk182, along the occasional special guest, provide running commentary of awfulsome movie and TV shows. The hosts select movies that either one, or both, have never seen. All jokes and comments are improvised. NO PREPARED JOKES OR COMMENTS! During recording, the movies are watched at a low volume and with the subtitles on. Viewers may want to turn subtitles on as well to enhance the viewing experience. So, cue up the audio, ready the movie, and hit play when we say so. Note: This video is the commentary recorded by Acomi and Turk182, and selected screenshots. It is NOT a viewable copy of the film. The commentary can be enjoyed on its own, but if you want to experience the Let's Watch in all its glory, you'll need your own copy of the movie.

Director Stuart Gordon, known for creating the body horror classics Reanimator and From Beyond, reunited with writer David Mamet to direct the film adaptation of the controversial playwright's one act play Edmond. Gordon and Mamet were colleagues in the Chicago theater scene and first collaborated on the original staging of the writer's Sexual Perversity in Chicago. In Edmond, William H. Macy plays the title character, a misanthropic bigot being put through a dark night of the soul on his way to elightenment. The cast includes Julia Stiles, Joe Mantegna, Rebecca Pidgeon, Denise Richards, and Bokeem Woodbine. Dan and Vicky discuss the film along with lots of recently seen including Barbarian, Don't Worry Darling, Bros, 1973's The Last of Sheila, See How They Run, the Goodnight Mommy remake and Hulu's Reboot.

As you can see, we sadly had to skip Bride of Re-Animator (1989) (no male nudity), but we pick right up 13 years later with Beyond Re-Animator (2003), this time helmed by the great Brian Yuzna! We didn't think there would be a lot to say about this film, simply because it's not amazing, but we were wrong. Animatronic rats, dancing penises, and nanoplasms intermingle to provide an adequately amusing finale to the Re-Animator series. Joined, once again, by Josh Martin of Uncomfortable Brunch and Orlando Pop Up Movie Services, we are ready to tango.
The final episode of All Horror October 2022 finds us watching two horror films selected by longtime friend and listener Kyle Ferguson who also joins us in the discussion. First up is a low budget H.P. Lovecraft adaptation that has built up an incredible cult following over the years. This is followed by our discussion of a film that, though initially seen in festivals in 2007-2008, never truly got the theatrical distribution intended for it until just this year. It also happens to be the occasion of our 500th beer review, for which we pick a seasonal craft ale that many of you fine listeners can likely find on the shelves of your local beer emporiums. Sip along with us!

On this spooky season edition of Parallax Views, documentarian Joe O'Connell joins us to discuss his latest feature, RONDO AND BOB, about the parallel lives of Robert A. Burns, the behind-the-scenes art force behind such cult classic horror movies as Tober Hooper's THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, Stuart Gordon's RE-ANIMATOR, Joe Dante's THE HOWLING, and Wes Craven's THE HILLS HAVE EYES, and Rondo Hatton, an acromelgaly-afflicted journalist of the early 20th century who made his way to Hollywood to become Tinsel Town's 1940s equivalent to monster movie icon Boris Karloff. Before getting into RONDO AND BOB, however, Joe and I discuss his previous documentary DANGER MAN. Said film focused on the life and times of stuntman Gary Kent, who was involved with a plethora of B-movie and independent films in the 1960s and 1970s. Kent also is one of the stuntmen upon which Brad Pitt's character in Quentin Tarantino's ONCE UPON TIME IN HOLLYWOOD was based. Specifically, the fact that Gary Kent had an encounter with Charles Manson while filming a movie on Spahn Ranch (where the Manson Family were living before the Tate/LaBianca murders) became a plot point in the aforementioned Tarantino feature. We then delve into the stories of Bob Burns and Rondo Hatton, including the similarities and differences in their lives. Burns was someone who appeared normal on the outside but was an eccentric in life and also felt unlovable. Rondo, most known for his appearances as "The Creeper" in films like the Sherlock Holmes caper PEARL OF DEATH, HOUSE OF HORRORS, and THE BRUTE MAN, appeared odd on the outside but was a normal, affable, and much loved man in his every day life. What can we learn from the lives of these two creative individuals who lived life on their on terms? That's the question in this fascinating edition of Parallax Views. Among the topics discussed: - The career of Gary Kent, who went to Hollywood with no experience but grew to become a long-running stuntman in Hollywood who often worked on the independent/grindhouse/drive-in movie circuit productions of Sam Sherman, Al Adamson, Don Jones, and Ray Dennis Steckler; his credits include movies like Schoolgirls in Chains, Bubba Ho-Tep, Psych-Out, Hell's Bloody Devils, Satan's Sadists, the Bruce Willis vehicle Color of Night, and Monte Hellman's Ride in the Whirlwind; how the documentary Danger God came together; the challenges of stunt work; Gary Kent's role in Rondo and Bob - The strange and fantastic lives of Bob Burns and Rondo Hatton; Rondo's early life, involvement with WWI, and his career in Hollywood; Bob's eccentric personality and loneliness; the continued fandom around Bob's work; Bob's acting as serial killing drifter Henry Lee Lucas in Confessions of a Serial Killer; Bob's movies Mongrel (with Hollywood star Aldo Ray) and his unreleased comedy Scream Test; Bob's home-made pinball machined based on the adult movie comedy Deep Throat with Linda Lovelace; the ways in which Rondo and Bob's lives mirror each other and the tragedies in their lives; Bob Burns, Tobe Hooper, and the University of Texas tower shooting - The influence of the George Lazenby/James Bond 007 documentary Becoming Bond on Rondo and Bob; the half-documentary/half-documentary approach of Rondo and Bob And much, much more!
Dr. Herbert West is back with his reagent and he is hoping to make his own Frankenstein monster lady using Meg's (first movie) heart. How does the sequel stack up against the original?

On this spooky season edition of Parallax Views, we've got not one but two conversations to get you ready for Halloween! First, up Jason Brooks joins us to discuss the new Friday the fan film he's directed, wrote, and starred in called Friday the 13th Vengeance Part 2: Bloodlines. the first Friday the 13th Vengeance was a huge hit with fans of the Jason Voorhees saga and with it's professional-look, use of alumni from the Friday the 13th franchise, and feature-length running time was often spoken about as being "more than a fan film" when it came out. The sequel ups the ante further by featuring Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers's Tamara Glynn and Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives's Darcy Demoss and fan favorite Thom Matthews reprising their roles as Nikki and the Jason's heroic arch-nemesis Tommy Jarvis. Also returning are Friday the 13th Part 6's C.J. Graham (who played Jason in Part 6), as Jason's father Elias Voorhees, and Tom McLoughlin, the writer and director of Part 6, as the new character Gravekeeper Walt. Both Vengeance Pt. 2 and its predecessor features a massive amount of gory carnage candy for fans of the series as well as some surprises along the way, including an appearance from The Ramones' Richie Ramone as a punk rocker! In this short but sweet conversation Jason and I discuss: - The origins of Friday the 13th Vengeance and how it started as an entirely different film called Friday the 13th: Mythos; the love and passion that went into Vengeance and how it became known as "More Than Just a Fan Film" thanks to the effort of Friday the 13th Part II's Steve Dash (who appears as the town Sheriff in the fan film; his last film role); the stars of Vengeance including the aforementioned Steve Dash, Friday the 13th Part 6's C.J. Graham, Diana Prince (aka Darcy the Mail Girl of Joe Bob Briggs' Last Drive-In fame on Shudder), and former Penthouse Pet Veronica Ricci among others - The inclusion of Jason Voorhees' father Elias Voorhees in Friday the 13th Vengeance Part 2: Bloodlines and his origins in the Tom McLoughlin's original screenplay for Friday the 13th Part 6 (Elias also appeared in a number of the comic book spin-offs of Friday the 13th) - Talking about the special and make-up effects, kills, gore for the films and involvement of Hollywood/filmmaking professionals from special FX artist Joe Castro to Friday the 13th's original composer Harry Manfredini - What Jason and Co. learned from the experience of making the first Vengeance and how that informed Vengeance Pt. 2 - The shooting schedule and principle photography for Vengeance Pt. 2 and information about its budget - Video technology and the barrier to entry to making a professional-looking fan film - Why Jason and Co. wanted to make a sequel to Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives particularly - And much, much more! In the second half of the program, an old TV horror anthology has resurfaced after years of languishing in the tape trading underground of horror fanatics. Once only available in the form of poor quality bootlegs, Freddy's Nightmares is the forgotten Nightmare on Elm Street TV series that has recently experienced new life (and better quality) on the free (with ads) streaming service known as Tubi. Done in the style of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone, the show featured Freddy Krueger (played by Robert Englund of the film series) hosting bizarre and gruesome stories about his stomping grounds of Spirngwood, Ohio. Some of the episodes feature Freddy within the story while most only feature him in host segment. One particularly notorious episode, the pilot "No More Mr. Nice Guy", was directed by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre's Tobe Hooper and acted as an origin story for Freddy Krueger and prequel to Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street. With the series getting more attention thanks to it's being hosted on Tubi now, indie filmmaker Henrique Couto and David Denoyer have started a podcast in which they discuss each episode entitled Welcome to Primetime: A Freddy's Nightmares Retrospective. Henrique and David joins us to discuss not only Freddy's Nightmares but also the Freddy-mania of the 1980s, J.G.'s first experience with Freddy Krueger as a child vis-a-vis an unrewound Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (notorious for its homosexual subtext), the before-they-were-stars appearances of actors and actresses like Brad Pitt and Tank Girl's Lori Petty in Freddy's Nightmares, the origin of Freddy's Nightmares, the subversive themes of the NOES franchise, Re-Animator's Jeffrey Combs appearance in Freddy's Nightmares, the idea of elevated horror, thoughts on David Gordon Green's divisive Halloween Ends, how technology (cameras, lighting equipment, etc.) has allowed for a lower barrier to entry for aspiring filmmakers, Henrique's new anthology series Found Footage, the importance of learning craft in filmmaking, the weird dream sequences in Freddy's Nightmares, whether we'll ever see a new Nightmare on Elm Street movie, the FREDDY's TRICKS & TREATS episode of FREDDY's NIGHTMARES featuring a sleazy striptease from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit's Mariska Hargitay, and much, much more!

El cine de terror en la década de los 80s fue muy prolífica para este genero, en muchos casos las películas dejaron de tomarse en serio a si mismas y dieron paso a la producción de grandes obras llenas de creatividad y con un sentido del entretenimiento que se extraña en el cine de hoy. Fright Night, Hellraiser, The Lost Boys, Near Dark, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Return of the living dead y Re-Animator, son los temas de este episodio

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival, the established annual celebration of prestige comic artists, creators and publishers, once again took over a picturesque town in the UK's Lake District... but this time they weren't setting up their stalls in Kendal. Instead, they had moved beside your actual lake - I know, how novel! - with LICAF holding court in Bowness-On-Windermere over the weekend of Friday 14th-Sunday 16th October. I wasn't able to make it to the rest of the weekend's festivities - missing, by all accounts, some amazing panels. signings and appearances by world-renowned comic superstars, a performance by Charlie Adlard and his band, karaoke that will only be saved in the memory of those there and some boozy nights! However, what I took in on the Sunday was more than enough to tell me that this iteration of The Lakes International Comic Art Festival continues in the trend of a very respectable and enjoyable comic celebration. During my day, I managed to speak to a number of creatives who had been exhibiting at the show, including illustrator extraordinaire Lyndon White, fresh off the back of a number of successful Kickstarter campaigns during lockdown - notably CANDLES and REANIMATOR, soon to gear up for another edition shortly. Lyndon talks to me about the move of the Lakes from Kendal to Windermere, how that affects any trade creators need to do to justify the transition, how the books have been received over the weekend and what's on the horizon for his work...

We are joined, not only by friend of the podcast Josh Martin (of Uncomfortable Brunch and Orlando Pop Up Movie Services), but also by man-about-town Tighe Arnold, to discuss an absolute favorite: Stuart Gordon's Re-Animator (1985). Produced by the interminable Brian Yuzna, this is where a tag team becomes a real friendship. You know Laura loves a good friendship story, which means she also gets to talk about the friendship between Herbert West and Dan Cane. Love a good bromance. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the second selection of Spooky Penis Season (or as Josh so aptly calls it "Cocktoberfest").
Garrett & DeVaughn are back from their volunteer military tour and are in the mood for love discussing Bride of Re-Animator! The boys dive into the exploration of Herbert & Dan's relationship, more science, and if the reduction humor helps or hurts the film. Take a hit and pass that spooky shit!

“Now hear this. Now hear this. On this week's episode of Kirking Off we continue our weapons of mass destruction block which introduces us to Jetrel the Haakonian Oppenheimer who developed a weapon that killed upwards of 300,000 Talaxians when it was deployed during a war between the Talaxians and the Haakonians. As predicted the resident Talaxian - Neelix - isn't exactly thrilled with Jetrel's presence on the Voyager, and hostility ensues. Nathan feels the episode had a few too many threads and could have benefited from more focus. Dean doesn't necessarily agree, but he spends lots of time choking on his wine (let's hope we got all that coughing out in post). Most of the crew think Neelix should stop his whinging about his entire family being vaporized, because Jetrel feels really really bad about the whole thing. Things turn when we realize that Neelix may be terminally ill, and Jetrel goes all Re-Animator to clear his conscience and possibly save himself. The lads get into the metaphysical a bit, and then go WAY off-base when they apply Patrice ONeal's scale on rating attractiveness. They manage to reign it back and wrap it up with some more conversation about the moral responsibility of designing and deploying weapons of mass destruction. We present to you “Jetrel” from Star Trek: Voyager.” Season 1 - Episode 15 Connect with us!

Vulnerable o'clock! I got to thinking about why I like body horror so much, and I wanted to share that with you all. I think it comes from my experiences as viewing my own body as horrific (or capable of horrors). That comes in the form of chronic illness (crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis), unusual body conditions (vaginismus and vulvodynia), and good old fashioned fatphobia. It's hard when others view your body as gross or monstrous, and even harder when you view your own body that way. We're all working through our stuff. I'm glad we have horror to help us through.
On this week's episode hosts Aviv and Matt view and review season 11 episode 21 of SVU - torched! The guys discuss how the show has hit some kind of weird fun pocket, and Matt blows Aviv's mind that the fire expert in this episode is Chucky. The guys discuss the possibly real likely not real remake of Reanimator, Matt shares a story that gets bleeped out, and Matt tries to ID the filmmaker behind the probably fake Reanimator. All this and more!Give us a rate and review wherever fine podcasts are sold, tweet at us @svupodcast (which we cannot stress enough is the official Twitter handle of Law and Order SVU, and you can take that to the bank, the blood bank senator!) and for longer or weirder stuff send us an email email@example.com
