The Dossier Fantastique podcast opens once again, revealing a treasure trove of details regarding recent horror, fantasy, and science fiction films. Lawerence French previews JODOROWSKY’S DUNE, the documentary about the unmade adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel, opening in limited engagements on March 21. Steve Biodrowski reviews MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN, the 3D animated hit from DreamWorks. Together, two-thirds of the Cinefantastique podcasting team (Dan Persons is on hiatus) look at what’s out on home video for Tuesday, March 18, including FROZEN, SAVING MR. BANKS, and DARK HOUSE, a new independent horror film playing limited theatrical engagements after debuting on video last week. Tobin Bell (SAW) stars for director Victor Salva (JEEPERS CREEPERS).
Stick around after the credits for the Black Hole Ultra-Lounge, the podcast’s weekly bonus feature in which conversation flows freely and sometimes randomly. This week, the epic debate: is the longer TV re-edit of DUNE (from which director David Lynch removed his name) superior to the shorter theatrical cut?
