Movie Meltdown - Episode 77
This episode Bryan is joined by co-host Freddy from "Night of the Living Podcast", as we launch our new on-going series - Project: POE. A look at Edgar Allen Poe's influence on film and pop culture overall. This first episode we kick things off with Stuart Gordon's "The Pit and the Pendulum" starring Lance Henriksen, Jeffrey Combs and Oliver Reed.
Plus a lengthy discussion on Iron Man 1 and 2, super hero movies and digital comics vs. old school paper copies. And we start this new segment with a minorly Poe-related contest. Enter to win an awesome prize!!
“It’s very much like a child of the 80’s interpreting late Hammer.”
WARNING: Spoilers for the most ridiculous moments of "The Pit and the Pendulum".
