The Psycho Sequels

MMC_Psycho_sequelsbmy30.png

Hey friends, this week we finish off our Horror month. The MMC are joined by Eric Zaldivar, jumping back in on Mother's rocking chair, to look at the Psycho Sequels.

We don't cover the original Psycho at all (albeit a brief 2 minute discussion on it), but we do go in depth about Psycho II, III and IV.

So, how do these sequels stack up, against the granddaddy of all horror films? well, you may just be surprised at our opinions. We also throw in tidbits of knowledge about the making of these films.

Please note, there are NO tangents on this episode whatsoever. We do have tangents, but they are not on this episode, instead you can find them as seperate pieces on our Soundcloud page (bet you didn't know we had one of those did you hmm?)

You go to our Soundcloud page HERE to listen to the tangents (and some others we have posted years ago)

Having said all that, make yourself some tea, pop on your Periwinkle Blue dress and wig, and listen on with us.

Enjoy

Hey fam, well we got a special one for you this week. Not only do we have a horror double feature we're covering, it's also a podcast double feature. That's right, we were lucky to have our friends over at the Watch this Movie podcast on with us.

We are joined by Mulder and Wolfie to look at two films from 1980, both starring Jamie Lee Curtis (even if she is completely off her face throughout them)

This is a very lengthy episode, with quite a few tangents (we couldn't help ourselves)  and a lot of laughs, good times with these guys, our paths will cross again. Thanks fellas for being on with us.

So grab your favourite snacks and beverage and listen on with us, we'll be back to complete Horror month on the MMC here on Halloween.

You can find Watch this Movie on Twitter HERE

You can find their Website HERE

Cheers

Shadow of the Vampire

Hey friends, horror month continues on the MMC, and this week we take a look at the little independent film, that dares to ask - Was Max Schreck REALLY a vampire? Producer Nicolas Cage, actors John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe, along with out there filmmaker E. Elias Merhige pose this question in Shadow of the Vampire.

 

As to be expected, this episode DOES have talk about the film... but there are tangents in between, you know the drill.

 

Back next week with a massive episode, including our 2 friends from the always excellent Watch This Movie podcast. For now though, enjoy this 'un

 

Cheers

Mary Shelley‘s Frankenstein

This week, we're examining Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein." Branagh's done some highbrow kino in the past, but this one isn't too well remembered. Is it a misunderstood movie? A rightfully scorned piece of cinema? An excuse for Branagh to run around and throw levers with his shirt off? All this, and more will be revealed.
