PODCAST 278: The Invisible Man & Hollow Man

This week the Horror Duo revisit another Universal classic, H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man, while also comparing it to Paul Verhoeven's Hollow Man - a contemporary film of the same source material. In doing so, they also chat about how they might use the power of invisibility for personal gain.

Forest also sheds some light on his use of the phrase "whatever like that", as well as seeing the new Blade Runner 2049. Cory talks about some Halloween plans in the works, as well as celebrating the Friday the 13th holiday with a walkthrough video - defending & defeating the NES classic. Cory is also super excitement for the Netflix original series MindHunter, which he can be seen as an extra (Episode 6 - 27 MIN 10 SEC). All this, and shitting on desks!

I'm going to assume that Cory didn't choose MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN because he prefers John Carpenter to be alive.

Another film that was heavily edited after the establishment of the Hays Code was Cecile B. DeMille's SIGN OF THE CROSS, which is about the persecution of Christians by the Romans. It features a woman taking a bath in a pool of milk, and an almost-naked woman being fed to the lions, among other things.

Oh, did the two of you ever know about this: http://lostmediaarchive.wikia.com/wiki/Hellraiser_(Unreleased_1990_Video_Game)

If you're going to talk about the other "Bills" who should be in Brain Dead, why not mention someone appropriate, since it's a scientific film. Bill Nye the Science Guy. That dude's probably already brain-dead anyway.

Oh, right, Brain Dead was released January 1990. Innocent Blood was in 1992.

I started listening to the show and the Blade Runner 2049 review and I can't believe wrestling fan Forest didn't mention Dave Bautista's performance at the beginning of the movie and also the incredible back-breaker Ryan Gosling performs in the junk-yard scene half way through.

Hey guys amazing show as always. Thanks to Forest's review of Xtro,I got my girlfriend to watch it and I don't think lunches will be back to normal for awhile! Anyway, I have a few suggestions you may want to consider for future episodes. The 1981 made for tv movie Dark night Of The Scarecrow,starring a young Larry Drake and a VERY old Charles Durning, and the 1991 Lovecraft flick,The Resurrected starring Chris Sarandon. I noticed a love of Lovecraft (hehe) on the podcast so you should appreciate this one! Thanks again guys!!!
