    It’s pronounced Reehey Keetamura.

  • Action Jackson

    I totally remember that episode of It’s Your Move and still bring up The Dregs of Humanity on occasion. It was an instant classic when it originally aired.

    Great podcast as usual, guys.

  • Dennis Murray

    So, I found the ending to “And Justice For All”… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sOeY6ZVG2U

  • swarez
  • Sweet, thanks for the links guys.

  • Greg

    That’s not quite the ending to And Justice For All that I was talking about. It’s a great scene, but that clip needs to go a little further to when he gets tossed outside to see the bizarre ending.

    Also, I love the fact that the Filmjunk readers go out of their way to find links like this. It’s awesome.

  • swarez

    We aim to please you Greg.
    Please you in the most vile way imaginable.

  • Thanks for the Fright Night links swarez, listening to them now.

  • Hello Guys,

    Fascinated to hear your comments about my film The English Surgeon. Just to say that finally we are being distributed by Indiepix out of NY next Spring, and the DVD will become properly on the day of the PBS/POV broadcast in the fall of 2009.

    Best,

    Geoffrey

  • Hey Geoffrey,

    Hopefully you get a chance to listen to the show…if not, you can check out my written review of your film at the following link:

  • swarez

    Prince Of Darkness is also one of my most favorite Carpenter film. I watched over and over again when I was younger and it always creeped me out. It was in fact the first movie I ever bought on VHS.
    Think I’ll watch it again.

  • Jessica

    I’m so glad you guys mentioned Session 9 and Candyman as must see horror movies. Whenever I meet new people who aren’t into horror, Candyman and Session 9 are the first 2 flicks I have them watch. I also quite enjoyed Prince of Darkness for the last 10-ish minutes. I enjoyed Black Christmas a lot more than Halloween because it was unpredictable and unconventional. Speaking of which, the ending of the original Night of th Living Dead left me speechless for literally 2 minutes after it ended. It’s absolutely shocking and brilliant.

    Here are a few more suggestions:
    -May (very original and strangely funny)
    -The Mist
    -Peeping Tom (not really horror but should be seen by fans of Hitchcock’s Psycho)
    -Tales from the Crypt’s Demon Knight (worth it for Billy Zane’s performance alone but there are many other great things about it)
    -The Changeling (that séance scene gives me chills every time)

    That’s all I can think of right now…

  • swarez

    Good calls on Demon Knight and The Changeling, the latter is one of my all time favorites in terms of mood and dread.
    Demon Knight is fun as hell and Zane is awesome in it.

    One flick that needs to be on all horror movie lists is Exorcist 3, top notch movie that far too many people overlook as crap because of the title.

  • Jessica

    I completely concur about Exorcist 3! Brad Dourif stole the show on that one. He was so mesmerizing and terrifying in his all scenes, I would barely blink when he got n screen. He deserves more credit than he has gotten for that brilliant performance. Seriously, that character gives Hannibal Lector a run for his money.
    No one believes me when I tell them that it’s a genuinely scary and well made movie! After seeing Exorcist 2, I understand why.

  • Greg– No Manny Coto on your best horror films list? What gives?

  • @Sean or Jay C.: Break into Greg’s house late at night and gag him with a copy of “Dawn of the Dead” as he sleeps. Make sure you have a mask on.

  • Great show guys. No one I know has yet to see 4m,3w,2d and it’s been frustrating not to be able to discuss it as I think it’s maybe the best film I’ve seen in 5 years. I was happy you all gave it a 4/4. I would have ot come in with the beat down if one of you didn’t I never conciously thought about the constant red herrings but it’s totally true. And that dinner scene is one of the most intense scenes of all time for a scene in which nothing of importance is happening. It’s amazingly brilliant.

    Can any of you give me any reason why this film wasn’t nominated for best foreign language picture? It blows the competition out of the water.

    I had all sorts of other things to say as I was listening in the car, but now forgot them all.

    – Hell Ride was all sorts of awful. Trailer is QT/Rodriguez looking, but then the whole thing gets convoluted and kind of boring. SUPER hot chicks though.

    – Mamet’s Edmond was awful as well I thought.

    – Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1979) – One of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen.

    – I’ll be watching Prince of Darkness tonight (I’ve never seen it).

  • - Yeah Greg, you need to see Dawn of the Dead. The original of course, but the remake isn’t bad surprisingly.

    – Ben Stiller was on a few episodes of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” which worked pretty well.

    – If you can get out and see “Rachel Getting Married”…. WOW. Top ten of the year easily.
