Movie Meltdown - Episode 391 (For our Patreon supporters.)
This week... we talk about movies. Zombie movies and rage viruses... and high school melodrama... and slasher movies... and the Leatherface family reunion... and Stephen King stories... and one of our favorite, if not one of the most perplexing directors. All that, among many other things.
And while we specifically clarify that we don't eat flesh... we eat brains, we also mention... Chicken Little, Vincent Price, hand-held action scenes, my two least favorite things about weddings and funerals, The Edge of Seventeen, putting dirt on the coffin, a button-down shirt, Dan O'Bannon, it still yips, Turk 182, as happy as you can be in a zombie apocalypse, I'm expected to look like a grown-up, just vast wasteland and dead bodies, a grim presentation, Chicken Run, The Last Man on Earth, wearing super short skirts, Tobe Hooper, even people who love it make fun of the second half, 28 Days Later, you care about those characters, From the Hip, Haley Lu Richardson, Matthew McConaughey, House of 1000 Corpses, robots and Stonehenge, it stuck with me... for a different reason, Leatherface's long lost cousin, Mick Garris, you're left with this feeling of dread and despair, the tone was light-hearted, Return of the Living Dead, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, it's usually you bringing him up, Bill Moseley, the giant spider, Kingdom Hospital, Texas Chainsaw 3D, The Devil's Rejects, that what killed the series as it went along, it's a weird balance to those two movies, Baby Geniuses, sex comedies and Christmas movies.
"...the film was shot in fourteen
days on a budget of $50,000. Well done sir."
