PODCAST 267: Contamination & Blood Spattered Bride

This week Forest takes a look at the Italian-German Alien rip-off - Contamination - about a giant egg laying brain. Inspired by Mad Ron's Prevues from Hell, Cory re-enters the wild world of exploitation/horror with Blood Spattered Bride.

The Horror Duo chats about watching Jaws on a beach, the return of John "Bones" Jones to the UFC, as well as talk about recently released trailers. All this and Cory recommends the Lovecraftian indie flick The Void, and maybe Beyond the Gate too.

I should note that Goblin's soundtrack for Alien Contamination was also pilfered by Bruno Mattei for "Hell of the Living Dead", in addition to the "Dawn of the Dead" soundtrack.

Also, the story "Carmilla" was adapted by Hammer Studios into a loose trilogy consisting of The Vampire Lovers; Lust for a Vampire; and Twins of Evil.

12 minutes into this podcast, and I'm thinking, "The fuck you guys? Hardcore motherfuckers like yourselves shouldn't get sensitive to the PC crowd for sensitive language. 'Oh, that's so gay.' 'Oh, this is how a deaf Santa would sound.' 'Eh, get me a beer woman!'"

Rubbish! You guys are getting too light. You think there are queers out there who can't stand being called fags anymore than kids with glasses can take getting called 4-eyes? That's the problem with getting too popular, you start getting softer to appease more and sacrifice the harcore aspect that drew in the niche crowd from the getgo. Same bullshit happened to WWF/WWE, same thing happened to G4 Tech TV, and the same thing happened to the IFC channel and the Sci-Fi (now SyFy) channel.

Here's the bottom line. If it's ok to make fun of straight guys, it's ok to make fun of gay guys. If it's ok to make fun of men, it's ok to make fun of women. If it's ok to make fun of blacks, it's ok to make fun of whites. If it's ok to make fun of republicans, it's ok to make fun of democrats. It should be ok to make fun of anyone and everything.

Back to "greatness", since I'm in the middle of Dune (Book) Club right now and reading the book and posting thoughts on themes/ideas and such, I've got a few quotes for you.

Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never content. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man. -- Princess Irulan

The Law of the Minimum:
“Growth is limited by that necessity which is present in the least amount. And, naturally, the least favorable condition controls the growth rate.”
“And remember that growth itself can produce unfavorable conditions unless treated with extreme care.”
-- Dr. Kynes

“In our society, people shouldn’t be quick to take offense. It’s frequently suicidal.”
“And lots of times, no offense is meant, but people die anyway. It doesn’t make sense.”
-- Gurney Halleck

One (second to) last note. It's my theory that I've deduced from all the events in my lifetime and from films/novels I've seen/read which has lead me to believe that the best course of action to take when it comes to dealing with people who take offense at something is to ignore them unless they have a good reason that goes beyond emotional reasoning. Something I've deduced and made a very strong (trigger warning charged) argument for in my review of Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing, and in the discussions that sprung from that review bombshell. Demonstrating that draining a word of its venom can only be done by using it frequently until it's no longer a big deal, much like watching violence in films, or watching foul-mouthed movies. Pushing the word(s) away does the exact opposite of that.

So get it together, you immature fucking queers. Guys like you aren't common enough, even on the Internet (for as long as that's going to last). Guys who make immature jokes but are smart enough to know they're immature and make fun of themselves just as much as they do others. That's a healthy attitude to have.

Oh, one more thing. I'm doing a little "thing" this month where I put up a list of movies and in exchange for an individual watching and reviewing one of them, I review ANY single movie they want me to watch. For you guys, considering how many films you've reviewed for me, figure I should return the favor.

So, I will review 1 film Forest recommends, and I will review 1 film Cory recommends. I need a response prior to the end of August. That being said, you should be aware, if you recommend me a film that I end up liking, I will be showering you with praises. Make it one that sucks, I'll still watch and review it, but I'll be unleashing hell on both the film and the individual who recommended it to me.
