EPISODE SUMMARY
We finally got it right! When we started Fantasy Horror Month, we figured it would be a breeze. As it turns out, there is plenty of dark fantasy, but it is difficult to find actual fantasy horror. We found one and it is a doozy. The Head Hunter is bloody and gory, but not very violent. It values storytelling payoff over actual action. The cast is comprised of one man, one girl, and lots of severed heads. We also talk about Nikola Tesla’s secret notebook and the dangers of the wrong people finding it in Final Frequency.

ABOUT THIS EPISODE (134): 

Spencer is not the type of movie we would normally talk about on this show, but its new poster is too beautiful to be ignored. Someone on the show also learns that Princess Diana is not her Christian name. We also talk about Denis Villeneuve’s reasoning behind limiting how Dune can be watched.

We have covered some interesting (re: bad) movies in the second half of 2021. Final Frequency is in the odd space where it is not so bad it is good, while also never being truly terrible.

What you do end up getting is a movie that makes no sense, villains without any motives, and one of the strangest LARPing scenes ever.

The Head Hunter is a nice escape from the world of deadly earthquakes and Lou Ferrigno Jr.

The final entry for Fantasy Horror Month is the tale of a father who is looking to get revenge for the loss of his daughter. It is filled with fantasy elements and horror tropes. It also has little action and dialogue.

Does this combination work? Tune in to find out!

The Head Hunter is available to stream on Shudder, Hoopla, Directv, or AMC Plus. Watch the trailer here. Final Frequency will release on VOD on August 31st.
