I'll also talk about a few that clearly have influenced some horror films we all know and love, why Rod Serling was so ahead of his time and what makes this series a timeless classic. Come join me in the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition in that dimension we call the Twilight Zone.

There will be redemption, resurrection, recession, restoration, a revolution, hard reality and a time of rest. And that is just the start. Instructions given and the power of prayer. The prophesy sounds familiar as history runs parallel. Days have past when permission was required. The limitless possibilities defined by others. Changes are happening which involve the spoken word. Most importantly, decide where to spend your energy. Those who truly matter are ignored. Dangerous group think offers comfort. If only they knew what is coming. The recession will be key in ending legacy media. Did we mention redress, refunds, reparations and reruns? Rod Serling told us. When beliefs modify consciousness. Subjective perspective and the simplest explanation. Cyber oligarchs and narrative control. Spiritual armor starts with God's truth. Shed all the lies we've learned in the past. This year, walk in faith and emulate all that is good. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

On this jam-packed, monster-sized edition of Parallax Views, acclaimed film historian Joseph McBride returns to the program to discuss the life and times of Hollywood filmmaking legend Steven Spielberg, his films, and his latest feature, the autobiographical coming-of-age drama The Fabelmans. McBride many books on cinema include Frank Capra: The Catastrophe of Success, Orson Welles: Actor and Director, Searching for John Ford, Billy Wilder: Dancing on the Edge, and The Whole Durn Human Comedy: Life According to the Coen Brothers, and, of special note to this conversation, the unauthorized Steve Spielberg: A Biography. Among the topics covered in this lengthy conversation: - Spielberg's early career, working in television with The Twilight Zone/Night Gallery creator/host Rod Serling, his made-for-TV thriller Duel and horror Something Evil - The success of E.T.: The Extraterrestrial and the point where Spielberg became a household name - The importance of Jaws to Spielberg's career - The resonance of Close Encounters of the Third Kind with move-going audiences; applying Carl Jung's book on flying saucers to Close Encounters of the Third Kind; the positive portrayal of aliens in Spielberg's films; Spielberg and immigrant liberalism; the role of the broken family in Close Encounters of the Third Kind and how in some ways the movie may be about his divorced mother and father - Spielberg wasn't a darling of film critics when McBride wrote his biography of Spielberg; the phenomenon of Spielberg haters; the lackluster box-office of West Side Story and The Fabelmans at the box office and mixed-reviews from critics - Steven Spielberg and Alfred Hitchcock; the idea that Spielberg is a master technical filmmaker but has little to say; Hitchock's 1976 film Family Plot starring Bruce Dern and Spielberg's attempt to meet Hitchcock - The approach Joseph took to the research and writing of Steven Spielberg: A Biography; interviewing "ordinary people" rather than just celebrities; Robert Caro's Lyndon Johnson biography; Joseph interviewed over 300 people for the book; interviewing people from all over the country because Spielberg lived in so many different cities and states, especially when he was growing up - Joseph's interview with Arnold Spielberg, Steven's father, and the said moment for him during that interview; the underrated role of Arnold Spielberg in Steven's life and amateur films; Steven's relationship with his father and the way it is portrayed in The Fabelmans; the schism between Steven and his father Arnold - The traumatic impact of Steven's parents' divorce on him in his adolescent years; family rupture, broken families, and the role of irresponsible father and mother figures in Steven's films - Picking apart the mythologized portrayal of how Steven got into Hollywood and the true facts of how he got into Hollywood - The ambitious 1964 science fiction film Firelight, which Spielberg made at the age 17 - Spielberg's dyslexia, his poor performance as a student in school - The story of a young Spielberg's experience seeing The Greatest Show on Earth and his recreating of that film's train crash - The common criticism that Spielberg's movies are too sentimental or schmaltzy; the darker elements of Spielberg's movies - Spielberg's first 35 mm short film Amblin and the role it played in  kickstarting Spielberg's career - MCA/Universal Studios head honcho Sidney Sheinberg and Steven Spielberg - Spielberg as an actor's director - Spielberg's mother Leah Adler - The obstacles Joseph faced writing an unauthorized biography of Steven Spielberg - The factual accuracy of The Fabelmans, The Fabelmans as a semi-autobiographical film, and Francois Truffaut's 400 Blows (Spielberg was a Truffaut fan and even cast him in Close Encounters of the Third Kind) - The Fabelmans' tornado scene and Steven Spielberg childhood tornado experience - A teenaged Steven Spielberg's film Senior Sneak Day, Steven's penchant for casting both his friends childhood bullies in his early films, his 1962 WWII film Escape to Nowhere - A young Spielberg's experiences with antisemitism and antisemitic bullying - How a young Spielberg had trouble with his Jewish identity; wanting to assimilate with gentile in his youth; a telling moment where a young Steven was embarrassed by his ultra-Orthodox grandfather - Spielberg's use of Christian iconography in his films including in Amistad and E.T. - Alienation, Other-ness, Otherization, and persecution in Spielberg's films; Spielberg's interest in communication with "The Other" as a theme - Alice Walker, Black Americans in Steven Spielberg's films, The Color Purple, and Spielberg as a "Minority Director"; the attacks on Spielberg over The Color Purple; - The Sugarland Express, Goldie Hawn, class, and the role of outsiders in Spielberg's films - The dark side of suburbia and smalltown America in Spielberg's films - E.T. and the truth of modern life; E.T. as resonating because it was unlike some of the Disney-style family entertainment of the time - The accusation that Spielberg manipulates his audiences; film editing as inherently manipulative - Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick, and Orson Welles - Schindler's List, Spielberg's USC Shoah Foundation, and Spielberg's meeting with black youths who had a much lambasted inappropriate reaction to the movie; Spielberg's initial apprehension about directing Schindler's List; Stanley Kubrick's Aryan Papers, Roman Polanski's experience in the Kraków ghetto, and the difficulty of making films about the Holocaust - Liberal politics and the films of Steven Spielberg - Joseph's analysis of The Post, which attempted to chronicle the Washington Post and the Pentagon Papers story, and the problems McBride has with it - Spielberg, 9/11, the Iraq War, the Patriot Act, and the Bush years; War of the Worlds and Minority Report - David Lynch's cameo in The Fabelmans as John Ford; Joseph's interview/experience with John Ford - The changing landscape of cinema, the dominance of superhero movies, and the history of the trend towards juvenile movies being cranked out by Hollywood rather than serious "adult" movies; are Spielberg and George Lucas responsible because of movies like Jaws and Star Wars?; cultural obsessions with superheroes and juvenilia and the effect of that on politics; The cultural shift from wanting realism in film to 'magic' and escapism - The success of Jaws, national TV advertising, and myths concerning Jaws' theatrical release - Billy Wilder's attempt to sophisticate and "European-ize" American cinema; the Coen Bros. as the "Sons of Billy Wilder"; Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard and the blending of tragedy and comedy; Hollywood was upset that Sunset Boulevard criticized the film industry; was Billy Wilder a cynical nihilist?; the Coen Bros. and European funding; the Coen Bros mixing of comedy and violence - Spielberg had trouble getting funding for Lincoln; John Ford's lesson about film funding - And much, much more!

Was this about the first place in the Americas where Native peoples engineered stone chambers and walls, or were they built by people from the Old World? Radiocarbon dating and students from Harvard and Penn State's astronomy depts confirm that the ceremonial centre and alignments were built about 2000 BC. This is long before Columbus so were people from the Old World sailing to America? There is evidence: the ibex petroglyph looks more like an African antelope than a North American white tailed deer. The corbelled ceiling is similar to Ireland's Newgrange and Scotland's Maes Howe tumuli. Why does it seem like the site was suddenly abandoned? There is almost no evidence of it being used as a necropolis. What was its function? What role do the alpacas play at the site? This site was featured on the inaugural season of Scott Wolter's "America Unearthed." Since then, it was covered by "Ancient Aliens" and on "The Holtzer Files." "The X-Files" did a show based on America's Stonehenge. It is believed that Lovecraft's "The Dunwich Horror" is also based on Dennis' property. There are a variety of ways to go with this subject.

It's the first ever Old Movies for Young Stoners Holiday Special! Bob, Cory, Philena and Greg are back to spread some holiday cheer, or maybe just baffle and amuse you. First, we discuss the new "Sight and Sound" 100 Greatest Films of All Time list that just dropped last week. Does "Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles" deserve the top spot? Should "Citizen Kane" reign in perpetuity? What happened to "Lawrence of Arabia" and "Touch of Evil???" The young stoners, the olds and Paul Schrader have some thoughts about this. Then we take a look at "Carol for Another Christmas." Funded by Xerox, written by Rod Serling, and starring Peter Sellers and Sterling Hayden fresh off of Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove," this is probably the bleakest version of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" and it's streaming now on HBOMax. After that, Bob shares his family's Christmas tradition of getting sloshed on rum and eggnog and watching "Horror Express," a 1972 Spanish shocker starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee but utterly ruled by Telly Savalas as a power-mad Cossack. Why is this a Christmas movie? Listen and find out. Bob does explain it... Kind of. "Horror Express" is now streaming on Shudder. Happy New Year everyone! See you in 2023 with Season 2.

A Pail of Air by Fritz Leiber, that's next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, with at least one lost vintage sci-fi short story in every episode.Like the author we'll hear from next week, Isaac Asimov, today's author, Fritz Leiber had a long and successful sci-fi career. But he also had a fascinating life.Fritz Leiber was born on December 24, 1910, in Chicago, Illinois, to the actors Fritz Leiber and Virginia Bronson Leiber. For a time, he seemed inclined to follow in his parents' footsteps. At just 17 years old he was touring with his parents' Shakespeare company, Fritz Leiber & Co., before entering the University of Chicago.He appeared alongside his father in uncredited parts in several movies in the 1930s including 1939'sThe Hunchback of Notre Dame.His first novel, Conjure Wife, published in 1943 has been made into feature films four times under other titles.Two Leiber short stories were filmed for TV for Rod Serling's Night Gallery. The Girl with the Hungry Eyes and The Dead Man.His first short fiction story, Riches and Power, was published in 1934. He would go on to write around 200 short stories and 10 novels. There's much more to the Fritz Leiber story which we'll save for another podcast.Today's story was published in the December 1951 issue of Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine. You'll find our story on page 56. A Pail of Air by Fritz Leiber.Next week on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast…Consider the problems of miners who work on Ganymede, moon of Jupiter, 390,000,000 miles from earth: isolated on a world so different from our own, surrounded by beings who know nothing of our traditions, how might these men teach their alien work-mates how we celebrate Christmas? Christmas on Ganymede by Isaac Asimov. That's next week on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, with at least one lost vintage sci-fi short story in every episode.

Ambrose Bierce was an American Civil War veteran. As a Union soldier Bierce fought in many battles, was wounded, and went on to become a pioneer in the horror genre, helping introduce the psychological thriller to the American story. American tradition is steeped in rich horror and veterans like Bierce who have taken their experiences in war and service and twisted them into terrifying tales for the public are a staple in that tradition. Edgar Allen Poe, a king of the American gothic, had a stint in the Army, enlisting under a fake name and age in 1827. Rod Serling, the creator and host of The Twilight Zone, fought in World War II, earning a bronze star and purple heart before going on to terrifying millions with dark, otherworldly frights on TV. These are some of the few, but impactful authors who have transposed the horrors of war into macabre fiction – and today, that tradition continues. On this episode of Fire Watch, we explore that tradition through contemporary authors – who are also veterans – in a reading of Bierce's An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.  Appearing in this episode: Weston Ochse, Russell James, Dacia Arnold, Drew Lawrence, Jonathan Raab, Brian Keene This episode contains adult themes, violence and swearing.

The power of the human mind is perhaps often underestimated, but it's certainly capable of much more once it enters the Twilight Zone. Season 2 of Rod Serling's masterpiece gave us two excellent examples. Episode 16 features Dick York in, "A Penny for Your Thoughts" and episode 27 showcases Shelley Berman in, "The Mind and the Matter."

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!

I am extremely excited to have on the show today a fellow podcaster, established producer, director, and writer, Mick Garris. Mick's podcast, Post Mortem with Mick Garris, dives deep into the devious minds of the greatest filmmakers and creators of your worst nightmares to bring their distinctive visions to life in fascinating one-on-one conversations. He's renowned for his classic screen adaptation of Stephen King's books like Sleepwalkers (1992), The Shinning and The Stand. and creator of 2005, Masters of Horror series.The California native began his passion for storytelling as early as 12 years old - writing short stories. He launched his passion onto the journalism path at just 16 years old. Driven by curiosity, he freelanced as a film and music critic and landed interviews with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Rod Serling, and Ray Bradbury in the 70s. It's remarkable what Mick accomplished in a time where everyone needed to know someone to get a foot in the door, let alone that early in life and without the help of social media. I guess folks were intrigued by his talent and drive.While doing film criticism, Mick wrote specs, publications for magazines, and did some filming on 8mm. The guy lived the dream. The hard work began to pay off. His agent, Rick Jaffa read some of his specs, believed in him, and introduced Mick to Steven Spielberg. Mick ended up writing the first episode of the Spielberg sci-fi series, Amazing Stories, and seven other episodes.He's credited for writing screenplays like Psycho IV: The Beginning, Fly II, and the She-Wolf of London series. He was also was an editor on Spielberg's other project, *Batteries Not Included, in which aliens help a feisty old New York couple in their battle against the ruthless land developer who's out to evict them.Garris has written and directed a lot of other horror classics such as Halloween comedy favorite, Hocus Pocus. The film follows a villainous comedic trio of witches who are inadvertently resurrected by a teenage boy in Salem, Massachusetts, on Halloween night.Garris and I talked about his incredibly difficult yet fun experience shooting his small budget directorial debut, feature sequel Critters 2. In the film, Eggs of the small but voracious alien creatures called Crites are left behind on earth and, after hatching, set their appetites on the small farm town of Grover's Bend.The man's contribution to the horror genre has amazing. Can't wait for you to catch up on my conversation with Mick Garris.

Synopsis “This highway leads to the shadowy tip of reality: you're on a through-route to the land of the different, the bizarre, the unexplainable... Go as far as you like on this road. Its limits are only those of mind itself. Ladies and Gentlemen, you're entering the wondrous dimension of imagination…” Next stop The DATEBOOK Zone. OK, all kidding aside, but “submitted for your approval” as Rod Serling would say, this is the COMPOSERS DATEBOOK for September 30th. I'm John Birge. On today's date in 1960, the second season of “The Twilight Zone,” — the legendary TV series created by Mr. Serling — began airing on CBS. For this, the producers added a new signature theme written by Marius Constant, a Romanian-born French composer. Constant had studied composition with Olivier Messiaen, Arthur Honegger, and Nadia Boulanger and had a very respectable career as a composer and teacher, but he's best known for his brief, but iconic, “Twilight Zone” theme. During its five-season run, that show also employed the talents of other famous composers, including Jerry Goldsmith, Leonard Rosenman, Fred Steiner, and Franz Waxman. And in case you're wondering who wrote the theme for the FIRST season of “The Twilight Zone,” well, that was another famous Hollywood composer by the name of Bernard Herrmann. Music Played in Today's Program Marius Constant (1925-2004): The Twilight Zone Main Theme (2nd version) –Orchestra; Joel McNeely, cond. (Varese-Sarabande VSD2-6087) Bernard Herrmann (1911-1975): The Twilight Zone Main Theme (1st version) –Orchestra; Joel McNeely, cond. (Varese-Sarabande VSD2-6087)

Current Affairs
The Enduring Moral Insight and Satirical Power of Charlie Chaplin and The Twilight Zone

Current Affairs

Today we dive into old cinema and television, looking at the films of Charlie Chaplin and the television show The Twilight Zone, both of which have recently been the subject of essays in Current Affairs by Ciara Moloney. Ciara has written for Current Affairs on subjects ranging from the 2020 Democratic candidates' range of merch to Hollywood's depictions of George W. Bush. Her essays on Chaplin's films and The Twilight Zone make the case that while both have become enduring cultural tropes and cliches, going back and viewing the original works shows them to have incisive and enduring satirical power. Today Ciara joins us to talk about how Chaplin skewered modern capitalism and how Rod Serling depicted anti-Communist hysteria, and why each showed the capacity of film and television to generate empathy. We also talk about how valuable it is to go back and view things that are old and neglected, since they are often fresher and more relevant than one would expect. The other films Ciara mentions in the episode are:Black Book (2006)Sidewalk Stories (1989)Final Account (2020)All Quiet on the Western Front (1930)The Best Years of Our Lives (1946)The Heartbreak Kid (1972)More of Ciara's writing on film, television, and music can be found at The Sundae. The "feeding machine" sequence from Modern Times can be watched here.
