Episode #196: Still Scary part II

GUEST HOST:  BOB FOSTER

  • Candyman
  • The Thing

We made an episode about movies for kids that can give you nightmares - here is the LINK for that...  What about kids seeing movies they are not old enough to handle?  These movies actually caused nightmares for Matt & his co-host.  Carrying over from our last episode, the creepiness of these works of terror persist in making you squirm in your seat a bit (if not a lot).  Cut off your hand and throw on a coat as we take you on another scary ride to round out October!!

Music note:  the Big Trouble in Little China track is from an artist called 331 Erock.  You can buy that album at CDBaby or on I-tunes.  Here one of many Halloween tributes he has done:  Halloween 2015.  All his songs kick ass!!


Note: Matt realized after that he mixed Conan the Destroyer with Red Sonja as he watched all 3 of those movies so much growing up:  Sandahl Bergman is the villain, not Sarah Douglass, and Mako is in the 2 Conan films.  We left that bit in there to show our mortality, that we are not the perfect beings that editing can have you believe.

Kurt Russell: Stargate (that page links to all other Russell episodes)

Here's Baby Time.  You can find Auralnauts Star Wars from there! :)

Episode #195: Still Scary

October 7th, 2016

GUEST HOST:  BOB FOSTER!!


  • Poltergeist (1982)

We did an episode about movies that were a bit scarier than intended.  As one grows up, some things don't affect us the same way, and we scoff at what bothered our child brains.  There are those few films, however, that continue to probe into our psyche and push our instinctual fear buttons in some form or other.  When a flick can still make you uncomfortable as an adult, that is quite a feat.  

Poltergeist was the 1st title to pop into this on our master list as it still kicks so much hinder!  Since we turned into babble fish over this masterpiece, you'll just have to wait until a few Saturdays for the next installment to round out this discussion on things that remain potent after plenty of other stories have attempted to stack up.  There was even a remake in the last year, and for those who have seen it - don't worry, we don't spend too much time on it...

After recording, Matt looked at the CinemaSins post for Poltergeist.  We assure you, he had 5-6 of the same thoughts independent of that video.  Great minds, eh?  We also assure you that we are open.
