PODCAST 273: Clown & Clown House [Clowning Around Edition]


This week the Horror Duo take on a pair of noteworthy films about killer clowns in celebration of the release of Stephen King's It. Forest shares his thoughts on the recent Eli Roth produced, and not directed, film Clown. Cory reviews the less than remarkable film Clown House while raising come interesting questions about the criminals working in the film industry and whether or not the movie going public is ready, or willing, to separate an artist from their art.

They also chat about the LJN Friday the 13th game and how misunderstood it was and still is, the total bad-assery that is the street level superhero, and also a friendly reminder that just because It is in theaters, don't dress like a clown and menace your neighbors, someone might just shoot you.

I don’t recall Cory doing the RIP, but Jerry Lewis died a couple of months ago. So Forest may be able to see THE DAY THE CLOWN CRIED (see, clowns!) soon.

There’s a certain of hypocrisy among those in Hollywood, and possibly the PC people on the whole, when it comes to who to forgive and who not to forgive. For example, we all know about Mel Gibson’s shortcomings (verbal abuse, racist and anti-Semitic remarks, etc.) and until recently, he seemed to be a pariah in Hollywood. When casting for THE HANGOVER 2 was underway, it was announced that Mel Gibson was going to have a bit role as a bartender. Apparently, the cast protested the choice until the producers caved and hired Mike Tyson instead (who had already had a cameo in the first film). So they *weren’t* willing to forgive a good actor and director for racism, but they *were* willing to forgive a man for rape, which easily the worse sin.

Oh, and you should both probably review Bo Derek's GHOSTS CAN'T DO IT and HOME ALONE 2, and then spend the review extolling Donald Trump's cameos in those. Maybe the curse will kick in there...
