After taking an elevator ride with the DEVIL, Dan Persons, Lawrence French, and Steve Biodrowski explore the subject of claustrophobic thrillers on this week’s installment of the CFQ Post-Mortem Podcast. CUBE, SAW, DEMONS, THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL all feature hapless victim locked in inescapable situations – a guaranteed formula for suspense that we like to call “shooting fish in a barrel.”
Also up for debate: Spoilers. Are publicity campaigns and reviews giving away too much? Are viewers being told more than they want to know before they get a chance to see a film for themselves? Tune in for this epic debate.
And in case that’s not enough, a brief excursion into the realms of Halloween horror as the CFQ Podcast Crew explores the subject of seasonal haunted house attractions that brings horror movies to life.
The podcast wraps up with a look at some favorite personifications of Satan on screen: THE DEVIL RIDES OUT, BEDAZZLED with Peter Cook, and THE DEVIL AND DANIEL WEBSTER with Walter Huston.
