Rue Morgue Podcast
I sent Slippy the Rue Morgue Podcast’s 100 ESSENTIAL ALTERNATIVE HORROR FILMS list as selected by listeners of the show and asked him to pick five titles that tickled his winkle. The rest, as they say, is history.
This episode is required viewing for anyone interested in pursuing a career in special effects make-up!
He’s best known for his 1971 classic THE LAST PICTURE SHOW starring Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges and the indescribable Cybil Sheppard but for my more macabre tastes, I’ll always think more fondly of his debut feature, the Roger Corman produced 1968 modern horror masterpiece TARGETS starring Boris Karloff in what was not only his last great performance on screen but one of the most fascinating performances of his entire career.
I sent Mr. Felsher from Red Shirt Pictures a link to the Rue Morgue Podcast’s 100 ESSENTIAL ALTERNATIVE HORROR FILMS as selected by listeners of the show. I asked him to pick five films that tickle his winkle and the rest, as they say, is history.
More war stories from such flicks and TV shows as Wrong Turn, Land of the Dead, The Hobbit, The Evil Dead Remake, Hemlock Grove, Beauty and the Beast, the Dawn of the Dead Remake and working with the likes of Peter Jackson, Richard Taylor, George Romero, Stan Winston, Fede Alvarez & Dr. Uwe Boll!
Feedback interrogates Peter Strickland, director of Berberian Sound Studio, the disorienting descent of a British sound engineer into an existential nightmare after traveling to Italy to work on a horror film. Sorry, a ‘Santini’ film!
Just one of the many LAST CHANCE LAMPISMS you’ll hear on this episode….
“I totally appreciate these people and I wish that other people did too, including myself.”
This list is jammed with masterpieces and disasterpieces alike but however you slice it, it’s a juicy collection of tantalizing horror flicks, many of which don’t get the recognition they deserve (if they get any at all).
With another eye-popping, sometimes jaw-dropping, exposé, on the special effects make-up industry, we shine a light on Pat and Kyle’s work on The Hobbit, The Evil Dead Remake, the Dawn of the Dead remake, Freddy vs. Jason, Beauty and the Beast series, Solomon Kane & last, and certainly least, Gooby.
We also prattle on at varying lengths about The Evil Dead Musical, Creepshow, The Car, Jaws, The Entity, The Sender, Conan The Barbarian, Hannibal the series and last but definitely not least, Jerking To The Witch!
