This week, we embrace the dark side with one older cult classic and one new release, “Killer Nun” (1979) and “Demonic Toys: Jack Attack”.
As always, we begin the show with some horror headlines.
Last year was supposed to be the end of Halloween. It would have been the worst possible way for the celebrated franchise to end, but it was time for it to go away – at least for a long time. Hollywood is never afraid to keep recycling ideas, so we start the show with a talk about the future of the series.
Netflix has been a major player in the streaming wars from the beginning. What few remember and even fewer know is that it got its start as a DVD rental company with a novel idea. As that era ends, we reminisce about the early days of Netflix and the internet in general.
Then, it’s on to our featured presentation and new movie spotlight.
Video Nasties are an important part of horror history. A list of movies that were deemed obscene and morally irrelevant were soon banned, and their distribution became criminal. It was not until the end of the 20th century that the laws relaxed, if ever so slightly.
Killer Nun is an interesting inclusion.
There are enough scenes that justify the decision to place it on the list, but it stands out from the rest. Less over the top and gory, the plot is based on true events. The mix of outrageous moments and grounded storytelling gave us plenty to talk about.
For our second film, we talk about the latest from the Full Moon family.
Full Moon Features is responsible for some of the most loved and disregarded franchises. One of the most overrated is the Demonic Toys series.
We talk about the latest addition and wonder what appeal it will have to modern audiences.
ABOUT THIS PODCAST:
Every week AIPT Movie Editor Nathaniel Muir and his cinema partner in crime Blake Heath discuss indie and genre movies you have have never heard of, the ones you cannot hear enough about, and the ones you never want to hear about again.
It’s something of a throwback episode for Look Before Your Leap week. We review two nonsensical movies: one is a release from The Asylum and the other is a Portuguese import. Both are fun in their own way, but one is horrible while the other has to be seen.Adventures in Movies! is a part of the Morbidly Beautiful Podcast
