Nope, we're not doing the good one. That's right, 2011's prequel to the John Carpenter classic is this week's movie. What happens when a super fan director gets to make the movie of his dreams? Well apparently he completely goes away from the qualities that made the first movie great and he turns it into a generic horror movie with no soul. Whoops.
It's a horse movie this week for GTTP. Ravenous is a boring movie where nothing happens minus a few people being eaten at one point, Ryan LOVES it! There's almost nothing for the duo to talk about in this boring snooze fest so they spend a lot of the episode talking about snowstorms and the time Kevin manipulated Ryan into making a terrible fantasy football pick. This is more of a deep cut for the loyal listeners as you try to get through hearing about this underground Guy Pearce movie about how terrible it would be to live during any time period that isn't now.
Oh baby, we got a real doozy this week. Paparazzi, a Mel Gibson fueled fever dream about the life threatening struggles of....having your picture taken. That's right, a movie about the trial and tribulations of a young actor whose career has reached a level he could only fantasize about, and how a slight inconvenience should allow for him to commit mass murder. There's no way to prepare yourself for this movie. You just have to strap in, Get to the Podcast, and hope you survive.
Happy Halloween from your favorite movie snobs. This week we're revisiting an older horror cult classic, Phantasm. This was a polarizing episode where we couldn't agree if this movie was good for it's microscopic budget or bad for not spending an extra 50 bucks to hire a better actor than Jody. This episode feels much like the movie, a fever dream where no one is really sure what is going on, so Get to the Podcast and try and make sense of it all.
