PODCAST 312: House & House [Home Sweet Home Edition]

This week the Horror Duo take on the theme of crazy houses. Forest begins a series focused on Japanese films, beginning with the tripy '70s flick House. Cory covers House - the first in an odd series of films.

The Horror Duo chat about turning out for Slayer's farewell tour, featuring Testament, Behemoth, Anthrax & Lamb of God. They also cover the phenomenon of white supremacists who are drawn to Slayer for confused reasons. Forest also sees Hereditary, and Cory ponders what is to come from the new Halloween, Suspiria & Sharknado 6 films.

Celebrity Death: https://www.tohokingdom.com/articles/2018-05-23_yuriko_hoshi_in_memoriam.html - We lost Yuriko Hoshi, of Godzilla vs. Mothra '64; Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster; and Godzilla vs. Megaguirus.

I loved House (the Japanese film). It's such a beautiful film to watch; Criterion did a wonderful job in restoring it.

As far as the American HOUSE films go, the series goes up to part IV...BUT...there's technically not a Part III. There's a "Nightmare on Elm Street" rip-off called THE HORROR SHOW, which was released in some markets as House 3.

I'm curious about the Suspiria remake. I hope it's successful and they follow it up with a remake of INFERNO as well. A double SUSPIRIA review would be an interesting theme for you. You haven't done Dario Argento (or Lucio Fulci) in a long time.

For the trivia: I'm guessing it's the House that Dripped Blood, which were based on stories by Robert Bloch, who also wrote Psycho.

Funny that Vietnam should be brought up. Recently finished watching an reviewing a couple Vietnam documentary mini-series. You might find it fascinating, especially since I manage to pick up on a pattern of white-washing history, compared to how the 80s documentary tells things, to how an edited version of the 80s documentary tells things, to how the more recent 2017 documentary tells things. And you know me, once I even get a whiff of "censorship", especially when it affects entertainment media (much less educational media), I'm on it like fat girls on a cupcake.
