PODCAST 279: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde & Mary Reilly


This week the Horror Duo take on yet another classic horror film - comparing it to a modern take on the same source material. Forest raves about the 1931 Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, and Cory is totally underwhelmed by Mary Reilly.

Forest also chats about beta testing a friend's RPG, Cory talks about his time spent in Evans City for Living Dead Weekend, and both celebrate the life of John Dunnsworth as well as the character he's known so well for, The Trailer Park Boys' Jim Lahey. All this and, the Horror Duo ponder what it would be to live as women.

For next October, you have some options:

- Creature from the Black Lagoon/The Shape of Water (Guillermo del Toro's upcoming film--had Forest not reviewed HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP, that could have been accompanying film)

- Island of the Lost Souls/Island of Dr. Moreau (the Marlon Brando version)

- The Raven (1932)/The Raven (with John Cusack)

- The Cat People (1942) - The Cat People (with Nastasha Kinski)

Your description of the 1931 version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (which I haven't seen) reminds me a lot of the 1941 version (which I have seen); the one with Spencer Tracy, Ingrid Bergman and Lana Turner. That's one that impressed me horrified me in the same way the 1931 version impressed and horrified Forest. I got a bit scared and sad for that poor woman with how Hyde was treating her, and with what he was going to do to her when he was free again. The only thing really missing was the pre-code side boob. What I have seen from the 1931 version is how dumb-looking Hyde is. He looks more like a frikkin' vampire than a guy, while the 1941 version he looks more human, but still demented.

May have to give the 1931 version a more honest shot sometime.

I pondered whether or not I should bring this up, considering this is heavy stuff. But I'm not one to turn down a way to stick it to the man. There is an Indiegogo campaign for a Corey Carr-- erm, Corey Feldman biography film, with what happened to him during his childhood years along with his friend Corey Haim. This is in wake of the whole Weinstein scandal, and that Corey was silenced years ago when he mentioned the whole pedophilia thing.
