Whether it be Beatles vs. Elvis, Vans vs. Chucks or even Zepplin vs. Floyd (Don't ask us...that's too hard) there's always that question.
For those of us fortunate enough to experience the 80's...in any version (formative years or otherwise) we salivated over this question like kids striving to make theirHalloween candy last til Christmas. It broke down social walls, established alliances & made us all yearn for that night when we would all file into a darkened midnight theater, turn our respective "Taste" dials down to ZERO and savor the succulent joy of the slaughter.
Plus, here is our Charity of the Week.
*Episode Image Note* This week's image is taken from the amazing art of Tom Pollock Jr. If you enjoy, head over to thissite & give props.
The accolades (and criticisms) of many of a film are tied to the respective time of their release. The Wizard of Oz bombed when originally released, yet is consider a technicolor marvel in retrospect. Stay tuned, because we plan on having a whole episode dedicated to the topic of "Bombed on Release"
Most horror films are without a doubt a reflection of their era, since so much of what society finds frightening is drawn from contemporary events & surroundings. Many lesser known films ran your expectations off the road (Sleepaway Camp, anyone?), but these drove a stake into the heart of previous films and now live forever in pop culture. They are not our favorites, but they cannot be ignored, Dan...
We kick off week #1 in true Triforce style with a "horrific" chapter for our Remake series. While neither of us can attest to being dyed-in-the-wool "Horror Flick Fanatics," we nonetheless have a deep-seated appreciation for most things ghastly, gross & ghoulish.
So enough proselytizing...WELCOME TO FRIGHT NIGHT! TWICE!!!
