Dark Discussions Episode 054 - Cabin in the Woods (2012)

Produced by Joss Whedon and directed by Drew Goddard, Cabin in the Woods has a strong pedigree behind it which zeroed it in for critical if not financial success. Originally filmed in 2009, the movie got caught up in the MGM financial crisis which caused it to be shelved until 2012. Since then, actor Chris Hemsworth has become a successful star and supporting actor Richard Jenkins has been nominated for an Academy Award. The long journey of a troubled trip has finally ended.
When a group of five college friends head out to a tranquil cabin in the woods, what should be a typical weekend of fun, relaxation, and love in the sun turns out to be anything but. As their worst nightmares become real, their survival, unbeknownst to them, may have nothing to do with their own choices. What appears to be a typical horror antagonist may actually be part of something much larger and sinister.
The screenplay presents the film as a satire and commentary on horror tropes, comedies, and Hollywood while staying true to its genre roots. Dark Discussions discusses Joss Whedon, the cult of personality behind him as well as those that he satires, and whether being part of the Hollywood system is inconsequential to authoring such a screenplay. We take a look into the homages the film pays tribute to while chatting about both the positive and pessimistic items the script presents to its fanbase. Grab your movie tickets and get ready for our commentary on a film that is, well, itself commentary.

Dark Discussions Episode 053 - Bill Paxton Focus: 2002's Frailty

Actor Bill Paxton who has starred in such genre favorites as Aliens, Near Dark, and A Simple Plan takes a turn behind the camera and directs the 2002 psychological horror film Frailty. Besides directing, he also stars along with Matthew McConaughey and Powers Boothe. The movie is based on a script by fellow Texan Brent Hanley.
One night when a mysterious man walks into an FBI building stating that he knows the identity of a notorious serial killer, a complex and intricate tale is presented that leads back to the 1970’s. The lives of two young brothers and their single parent father are turned upside down when a mysterious turn of events leads to the serial murder of a number of ordinary citizens. What may be a fight between good versus evil, God versus Satan, could actually be nothing more than mental illness and unwarranted abuse of children.
Bill Paxton directs an elaborate story that includes one of the toughest things any director has to face: working with child actors. Coming from Roger Corman’s production company and having worked with such award winning directors as James Cameron, Sam Raimi, Ron Howard, Kathryn Bigelow, among others, Bill Paxton shows that he is as great a talent behind the camera as he is in front of it. Dark Discussions discusses his turn as a director and ponders why he has not been more prolific.

Vicis Interimo Episode 111: Godsend

Welcome to episode 111! This week we discuss the movie 'Godsend', which we agree is more of a sci-fi thriller than anything else. This movie has quality performances, but maybe falls short in other areas. Our Garbage in/Garbage out segment features 'The Green Lantern', 'A Woman, a Gun, and a Noodle Shop', and the family movies 'Nanny McPhee Returns; and 'Gnomeo and Juliet'. Madsaxxon has started playing 'Silent Hill:Shattered Memories' for the Wii, so we have some things to say about it... and the Crawling Chaos segment returns with a reference to the 1980's movie 'Weekend at Bernie's'. We'd like to thank Slug again for joining us last week, and look forward to him joining us again soon! You can find a link to his podcast below, as well as a link to the Dolls of Despair's podcast, where they interview Bill Oberst Jr. Thanks for joining us this week, and please join us next time for the movie 'Husk'!
Godsend: (2004) PG-13
When their son Adam (Cameron Bright) dies in a terrible accident the day after his birthday, married couple Paul (Greg Kinnear) and Jessie (Rebecca Romijn-Stamos) are contacted by a genetic research whiz (Robert De Niro) who wants to clone the boy. Caught up in grief, the couple agrees, hoping he can make things right. After the process is complete, things seem blissful until they realize that the "new" Adam has a dark side.

Dark Discussions Episode 052 - H. G. Wells' The War of the Worlds Part 2

While authors like Robert Heinlein and Arthur C. Clark brought to the page some of the greatest hard science fiction stories during the heyday of the genre in the 1950’s, movie producers like George Pal, Ray Harryhausen, and Howard Hawks were presenting films that would be remembered for years to come. The Forbidden Planet, Them!, and The Thing from Another World paved the way for others such as Stanley Kubrick, John Carpenter, and Stephen Spielberg.
In 1953, George Pal took H.G. Wells’ novel, The War of the Worlds, and brought it to film with spectacular vision. The movie became one of the towering points in genre cinema and today remains an all time classic. With a reimagining of the novel, the film brings the story to Los Angeles, California and the rural areas outside the city. The Martian invading tripods are presented as hovercraft saucers that turn out to be some of the most iconic “monsters” ever, both in shape and sound.
Dark Discussions discusses this achievement and why the film is one of the biggest movie extravaganzas of all time. Some little known facts are discussed as well. Prior to George Pal, others attached to the movie were film legends Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock, Ray Harryhausen, and Cecil B. DeMille. Also, in 1988 a two season television series continued the story where the movie left off. Lastly, cohosts Mike and Philip discuss how comic book great, Alan Moore, took the story and merged it with his graphic novel The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
To wrap up the episode, Dark Discussions interviews Patrick Rae, director and co-screenwriter of the feature length horror film Nail Biter which is doing the festival circuits.

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 051 - Anthony D. P. Mann's Terror of Dracula (2012)

Released on dvd the first week of April, 2012, the new film Terror of Dracula brings the nostalgia of Hammer horror films back to life. Dark Discussions was able to interview some of the folks behind the 2012 film including Anthony D.P. Mann (star/director/co-screenwriter), Bill Bossert (co-producer/co-screenwriter), and Matt O’Neill (poster work and artist).
With an upcoming article in the May issue #313 of Fangoria magazine, the movie has been highly anticipated by folks who have been waiting for a vampire film that brings back the Bram Stoker Dracula that horror fans are passionate about. Anthony, known best as co-host Tony of the HorrorEtc podcast, with the help of Bill Bossert bring to screen an adaption of Stoker’s menace that hasn’t been seen since Frank Langella’s Dracula.
Matt O’Neill discusses his vision for the poster art and dvd cover for the film, his inspiration from the labors of Paul Naschy, Universal, and Hammer, while also discussing his work for such horror giants Greg McLean, director of Wolf Creek and Rogue, and Jon Hewitt, director of Acolytes and X.
Rounding up the episode, Dark Discussions interviews author Mark Allan Gunnells to discuss his new creature feature novel The Quarry while following up with Zach Green of Fatal Pictures about the premier of his film Familiar.

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 050 - Alien (1979)

Well, fifty episodes! Dark Discussions reaches a milestone of some significance but just like prior weeks we are here once more to discuss genre cinema intelligently, in depth, and like fans should: with passion. This week your four co-hosts come together once more and decided on a topic that happens to be thirty-three years old. Unlike the age of the film itself, the movie is once more about to have relevance that could determine the fate of big budget R-rated horror films for decades to come.
Alien, 1979’s science fiction masterpiece, came together with an odd mix of talent and luck. Screenwriter Dan O’Bannon, suffering from crohn’s disease, came up with an idea of an alien entity using human hosts as incubators. He turned his personal discomfort from his illness into one of the most iconic scenes in film history.
Director Ridley Scott, film scorer Jerry Goldsmith, and artist H.R. Giger came aboard and with the highly figuratively filled script produced a dark horrific movie that turned science fiction film from Star Trek cheese to industrial working class grime. Now over thirty years later, with both Dan O’Bannon and Jerry Goldsmith no longer with us, Ridley Scott once more has returned to the source of his success. Using Alien as a basis, his new film 2012’s Prometheus is to be released in June. The film trailers have brought high hopes to all science fiction and horror fans alike. Your co-hosts, Chris, Eric, Mike, and Phil discuss Alien, its legacy, and how Prometheus may tie back in with the original. Listeners, thank you for coming along on our fifty episode podcast journey, and as co-host Eric suggests in closing, let’s do fifty more.
