We sink our teeth into Werner Herzog’s “Nosferatu the Vampyre” and check out the new indie horror film from IFC Midnight, “The Djinn”.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE (118):
Demon Slayer surprised lots of people by taking the top box office slot from the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat. There is no denying its popularity, but are we curious enough to watch the series? And would we go to a theater to watch the movie?
The Feast premiered at South by Southwest and is one of the best movies we have ever reviewed. IFC Midnight recently announced they have picked it up and have tentatively scheduled it for a Thanksgiving release.
Would watching it in a theater add to the intimate experience?
The Djinn is something of a throwback. Taking place over the course of one night in an apartment, the indie horror movie is about a child who wishes for his greatest desire. You can catch this film in select theaters and everywhere you rent films beginning Friday, May 14th. Watch the trailer here.
We also talk about horror-movie rules, how to use narration effectively, and the power of silence in horror.
May is Obscure Horror Remake Month and this week we talk 1979’s Nosferatu the Vampyre. The original is one of the iconic horror films of all time and the Werner Herzog remake is certainly beautiful. But is it good? We talk about the Dracula mythos, the best Renfield ever, and the interesting ending.
