Movie Meltdown - Episode 506 (For our Patreon "Horror Club")
This episode our Halloween party continues as we discuss the 2018 horror anthology Nightmare Cinema. Directed by Joe Dante, Mick Garris, David Slade, Ryuhei Kitamura, Alejandro Brugués and hosted by Mickey Rourke as "The Projectionist"… so what do we think of this mixture of genre entries?
Plus as we run down some of the more inappropriate things once aimed at children, we definitely mention… Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Courage the Cowardly Dog, EC Comics, Peanuts, Diff'rent Strokes, peanut butter kisses, Legends of the Hidden Temple, The Church, the next thing you know he's on the floor with Elvis's foot on his throat, severe meth psychosis, Doug Jones, yeah lots of questions - none of which were answered, Kit Kat, a bitchin’ rockabilly act, Philip Glass, Keith Emerson, Goblin, The Omen, creepy hallways with the blinky lights, Entertainment Tonight, The ABCs of Death, The Cryptkeeper, as a kid it scared the hell out of me as an adult it just confuses me, Masters of Horror, please got down in the basement… where my uncle died, The Exorcist, being best friends with Groucho Marx, Eye of the Beholder, Hocus Pocus, yanking out an IV, murder your sister... who cares, really high-quality Ghostbuster backpacks, Alice Cooper, a signature weird-ass dance, they didn't sugarcoat anything, Tenacious D, Lucio Fulci kind of insanity, we're going to go to our cousin's house... to not be traumatized, Rosemary's Baby, Mr. and Mrs. Van Pelt, that time I went to the psychiatric ward, a kid falls in a hole and dies, George Romero and is that ghost still paying property tax?
“...especially in the media world we’re living in now… why an anthology movie?”
