It’s a surreal sci-fi double feature with two new releases, indie horror “Capsules” and the absurdist comedy “Smoking Causes Coughing”.
Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the biggest movie stars of all time. His new movie comes out this October. We talk about his penchant for working with the same directors and his history with horror movies. Plus, we discuss the scientifically proven scariest movie of all time.
Capsules is a film with some cool ideas. It does a good job of building tension and has an interesting premise. But the script ignores the characters, continuity, and its own logic. What good it does is usually in scenes that do not make sense. Most of all, it is filled with privilege.
Smoking Causes Coughing is the most absurd superhero movie ever released. It includes heroes named after cancer-causing chemicals, a talking barracuda, and lots of blood. It does not make any sense on paper, but it is one of the most interesting films to come out this year.
We also talk about a modern kung fu movie, a quick remake, one of the biggest releases of the year, and a new release from Shudder.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
Last week, we talked about one of the most unique movies to screen at this year’s SXSW film festival, Only the Good Survive. We talk about the good, the bad, and the weird.
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.
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 lonnnnnng 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 it 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.
Video Nasties are an important part of horror history. A list of movies that were deemed as 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 our 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.
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 the latest addition and wonder what appeal it will have to modern audiences.
