New Year’s resolutions are a big thing for folks. Some want to lose weight, find a spouse, get a new job, work towards completing something; others have goals that they strive for. Co-host Mike said that there are a lot of genre films he hasn’t seen that he wants to get to, so as a New Year’s resolution, why not ask all the co-hosts to see some film they always wanted to see and then discuss. So each co-host chose a genre movie that they had never seen and decided to watch it and give their opinions.
Films we discuss are The Creature From the Black Lagoon, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978), The Quatermass Xperiment, Nosferatu (1922), Kwaidan (1964), and Mario Bava’s Black Sabbath. A listener of the show, Chris Genro, also gives his opinion on a film he had always wanted to see but never had, the 1970’s backwoods horror film Rituals.
Also discussed is a top ten list by Patrick Lacey on some of the best films released to disc in 2016 as well as his review of the new Vinegar Syndrome release of the holiday horror flick, Jack Frost. Also, actor Aston Elliot is brought on to discuss his role in the genre flick Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla and other films he has done in the Australian movie scene. Welcome 2017 and Happy New Year to all.
