A Serbian Film (ft. lampyman101)
2:00:37It's the last episode of Season 3 and it's definitely not one to miss as I'm joined by Glenn Criddle, a.k.a. lampyman101. Glenn's the first YouTuber I subscribed to back in 2009 who talked about disturbing films, such as the Video Nasties.The first half of the episode is an interview with Glenn covering many topics, such as why he started his channel, how YouTube has changed, advice he'd give to people looking to start their own channel, and a lot more, including times he's received death threats (!!!) for his videos.For the rest of the episode, myself and Glenn review A Serbian Film - one I'm sure you've all been waiting for! Not only is it possibly the most disturbing and controversial film of all time, but also a very misunderstood film.Jump to 57:48 if you want to go straight to the review.It was an honour having Glenn on the show and I hope to do something with him again in the future.
2:26:06Whoever said you can have too much of a good thing clearly never listened to this show. I've brought Myroslava Hartmond back onto the show once again to talk about Antichrist and the films of Lars von Trier.Listen to over 2 hours of quality content as we discuss von Trier's career, Myro's dislike of Willem Dafoe, foxes, and much much more. Check it out!
38:55I love talking about movies in depth as much as the next man, but sometimes it's more fun to do a quick review. On this episode, I'm covering a very nasty film, GROTESQUE by Koji Shiraishi. I'm a big fan of Shiraishi's early film, Noroi: The Curse - did I enjoy Grotesque? Listen to find out!WARNING - lots of graphic content in this one. Blame the film
1:17:03I've talked about how Eli Roth was inspired by Audition, so why not go straight to the source? Myroslava Hartmond joins me on the show once again to talk about Takashi Miike's most famous film, and notorious disturbing movie. We talk about the differences from the book the film's based on, its gender politics and, of course, the infamous last 30 minutes. Torture porn starts here - even if the wrong lessons were taken from it.A really fun show which I hope is listened to by a billion people.
1:27:18I've brought Myroslava Hartmond back on the show to talk about one of our favourite directors, Gaspar Noe. His most infamous film is Irreversible, a film which features one of the most harrowing rape scenes in film history. So a very very bad date movie then. There's a lot more to it though, as we discuss. One for fans of French cinema.
The Devil's Rejects
1:43:57It's the last of my Lionsgate series. On this episode, I'm reviewing The Devil's Rejects by Rob Zombie along with all of Rob Zombie's other films. As anyone who's listened to my podcasts before knows, I've never been a huge fan of Rob Zombie's films. So, this episode features THE TRIAL OF ROB ZOMBIE - featuring 5 charges regularly levelled against his films. Is he guilty? Let the trial begin!
1:50:07Tom Cannon joins me on this episode to talk about SAW, one of the biggest horror movies of the 2000s. Is it a bad date movie? No. Why am I reviewing it then? Good question.Over the next 3 episodes, I'm going to be covering 3 movies from the 2000s from the 3 biggest new horror directors of that decade. All 3 movies were released by Lionsgate and were part of the so-called "torture porn" cycle.If you're a Saw fan, kick back and relax for for the next 2 hours as me and Tom talk about Saw and all the films in the series!#notallhorrorfans
1:12:04On the 8th anniversary of the passing of Aleksei Balabanov, I thought it was appropriate to review one of his best known - and most controversial - films, CARGO 200.I'm joined by Myroslava Hartmond once again to discuss the film, as well as Balabanov's filmography and legacy in Russian cinema.Plus, why we both love Mark Kermode and his flappy hands.
