Dark Discussions Podcast #41 - M.J. Preston's The Equinoz

Episode 041 - M.J. Preston's The Equinox

In the 1980’s and 1990’s, Stephen King’s prominence brought about a flood of mass market paperbacks to bookstores, libraries, and supermarket checkout lines. Horror reading had become the fad and anyone who had a manuscript seemed to have their books published. Unfortunately most of them were horrible or mediocre at best and by the end of the 1990’s the horror market completely collapsed leaving only a handful of the early authors having their books published for a mass audience.
Today a handful of great authors are still about including Jonathan Maberry, Gord Rollo, and Brian Keene. Others have dabbled within horror such as Douglas Preston, Michael Crichton, Lincoln Child, and Scott Sigler, but many of their books cross genres into techno-thrillers and science fiction. But for those looking for a throwback to the writings of Stephen King, a new novel from 2011 entitled The Equinox by M.J. Preston was released that brought horror back to its core.
When a tribe of native people in the Northwest Territories of Canada are snowed in from the world, they are forced to resort to inhuman ways of survival. When a presence is drawn to their suffering, an evil blankets over their continued existence until a misfortunate occurrence results in the spread of the terror to more populated lands. With its ensemble cast, the novel takes paths that lead to a serial killer, demonic monsters, and a police department that slowly discovers that there may be something deeper into the crimes that have transpired in their small farming town in Manitoba.
Dark Discussions is joined by the author of this fantastic novel which co-host Philip has stated is one of the top ten horror novels he’s read since 2000. With the novel readily available at such stores as Amazon and Barnes and Noble, folks should go out and check their local library or get a copy for themselves.
For further information on M.J. Preston, check out The Equinox website and the author page. Also you can listen to another interview by Mr. Preston at Ron’s Amazing Stories #31.

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 040 - High School of the Dead

Episode 040 - High School of the Dead

With a large fan base for genre animated films such as Heavy Metal, Fire and Ice, and Beowulf, the West has been denied the variety of product that such nations as Japan has. The land of the rising sun has filled their fanbase with series after series of science fiction, horror, and fantasy animated films both based off of original material and graphic novels. Though Western fans have graphic novels, Japanese manga, and Heavy Metal magazine, cinematic animation has been very limited. Fortunately for decades Japanese anime has been imported and dubbed into many different languages bringing with them fantastical worlds and horrific visuals. Such series as Gantz, Texhnolyze, Ergo Proxy, Mardock Scramble, and Rin have been giving an alternate yet very fulfilling experience equally as Fringe, Dexter, and True Blood have to genre fans.
Dark Discussions focuses on one of the more popular Japanese imports from 2011 entitled High School of the Dead. When a group of five seniors and the twenty-six year old school nurse end up in the epicenter of a global zombie apocalypse, our six survivors attempt a breakout from the high school for lands more forgiving. With additional focus on the zombies, the series gives such shows as The Walking Dead a run for their money. Violence, adult situations, and kinetic mayhem make the struggle of our six core protagonists much more harrowing than your typical zombie media.
With a roaring soundtrack, fantastic animation, a story that has the undertow of the rot of society, and three hundred minutes of frenzy surrounding the action, Dark Discussions brings an overview of one of the most exciting and satisfying viewing experiences from 2011. Get ready for a new take on zombies that illustrates a tired topic and makes it as fresh as a recently risen corpse.

Vicis Interimo Podcast #103 Brain Dead aka Dead Alive

Welcome to episode 103, where we discuss the 1992 Peter Jackson movie 'Dead Alive'. Other movies this week include 'Paul', 'The Fourth Kind', and 'The Social Network'. Our Laid to Rest segment reflects back on the Anthony Hopkins excorcism movie 'The Rite'... what went wrong with this one? Opinions are welcome! We also make quick mentions of the Fox series Fringe and the HBO series 'Big love'. Thanks for joining us this week...
Dead Alive: UR, 1992
Although it's easy to admire the maniacal glee of director Peter Jackson's bloodfest, Dead Alive is nonetheless intense and profoundly disturbing. When a Sumatran rat-monkey bites Lionel Cosgrove's mother, she's transformed into a zombie. She begins killing (and transforming) the entire town while Lionel races to keep things under control. Events culminate at a house party that turns into a blood-drenched zombie buffet.

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 039 - The Best of 2011

The best of the year: 2011. The definition of what makes a film a 2011 film is pretty tough with genre movies. Many were released in 2010 through the festival circuit but were not available for anyone not in a major metropolitan area. Others were foreign films and due to distribution rights they never made it to cinemas in other nations and were instead released directly to DVD but months after their initial release in their home country. As a result, our definition of a 2011 film is a movie which was rolled out to thousands of theaters or released to DVD for the first time for mass consumption.
Since the films discussed are horror, to define a horror film can be a bit tough too. Each of your co-hosts had their own ideas. Horror comedy, dark thriller, supernatural suspense, exploitation, and of course slashers were considered. Even one film that was released years ago but has a new director’s cut is presented. But should films like Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Contagion, or Hobo With a Shotgun be considered?
Your hosts discuss top ten lists that include some standards like Insidious, Paranormal Activity 3, and Stake Land, but also less known films such as Dream Home, The Reef, and Kidnapped. Others that may raise eyebrows that are discussed include Jon Hewitt’s X, Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia, and Kevin Smith’s Red State. The conversation touches such topics as the biggest disappointments as well as what the new year has ahead. Is 2012 the year Hollywood bounces back with big budget films like Prometheus leading the way? As one listener, Peter from Massachusetts has done, go out and watch as many on our lists as you can.

Paranormal Activity 2: (2010) R
Doors slamming shut, shadows moving across the floor -- the unexplained, terrifyingly real supernatural forces are back, and this time, Dan (Brian Boland), Kristi (Sprague Grayden), Ali (Molly Ephraim), baby Hunter and dog Abby become part of the nightmare as the cameras roll. Tod Williams (The Door in the Floor) directs and Michael R. Perry ("Persons Unknown") writes this spine-chilling sequel to the wildly popular 2009 flick.
Mirrors 2: (2010) NR/R
In this sequel to the horror-thriller Mirrors, a security guard (Nick Stahl) working the night shift unwittingly discovers a portal to another dimension and starts having visions of a young woman who was murdered long ago. At first, he assumes what he's seeing is a figment of his own imagination. But when the vengeful girl's spirit begins claiming innocent victims, he's got concrete reasons to fear for his life.

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 038 - Iconic Characters in Horror Volume 1

Since Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and her creation of the monster, iconic horror characters have entered the imaginations but more so the nightmares of genre fans for generations. Whether they are supernatural monsters that stalk the night for new victims, whether they are wicked sociopaths filled with murdering wrath, whether they are demonic outer beings that collect souls for hell, monsters both human and inhuman have been the focus of frightening and lurid tales both in literature and film alike.
Dark Discussions takes a look into what has frightened audiences over these past forty years. With an eclectic look into the genre, four fiends of death which have brought audiences terror and dread through various film franchises are spotlighted in detail. Michael Myers of John Carpenter’s Halloween fame seems human, yet could there be a supernatural element to his beginnings? The focus of his murderous deeds make him unique as a personality. Jebidiah Morningside, better known as the Tallman in Phantasm, appears to be nothing more than the local mortician but behind closed doors some would say he’s more likely a necromancer, a demon, or maybe even the product of outer dimensions such as hell. Speaking of hell, Clive Barker’s creation of Pinhead, a demon known as a cenobite, comes calling to those who would dare summon him in search of pain and pleasure that no sane human being would seek. Lastly, Freddy Krueger of Wes Craven’s Nightmare on Elm Street returns in the nightmares of the offspring of those who murdered him after discovering while alive he had killed children for pleasure.
Philip and Gordon discuss each monster and their film franchises in detail. To wrap up the episode, from the mail bag, a number of zombie podcasts are focused on (thanks to listener Wodan). They include Darker Projects which features an audio production of David Moody's 'Autumn' in six parts as well as an original, ongoing zombie production called 'Alive Inside'. Also the website Zombie Astronaut, though older, has a number of zombie audio productions for your listening pleasure. Welcome once again to another Dark Discussion.
