PODCAST 357: Evil Ed, Lost Highway & Rubber


This week the Horror Crew take on three films that, to varying degrees, comment on the media and the filmmaking art form as a whole. Forest kicks things off with Evil Ed, a protest of film censorship. Rhiannon follows that with David Lynch's Lost Highway, which is said to be inspired by the O.J. Simpson murder case. And last but not least, Cory concludes this episode with Rubber, a "meta" look at movie story telling.

They also chat about the accuracy of History's Project Blue Book and The Umbrella Academy being green-lit for a second season. Also, avoiding the minefield that is the threat of Avengers: Endgame spoilers. All this and more, for, no reason.

Hey guys just to start Rhiannon can review as many 5 star movies as she wants especially if they're Lynch films cause then eventually she'll get to Dune and I cant WAIT to hear that explained. Get your Frank Herbert dictionaries guys! I also think Rubber's an interesting concept and branching off the beer talk from a few weeks ago a sequel could consist of a sentient Pabst Blue Ribbon can's adventures of trying to be liked by the public but failing miserably lol. See ya next week!

About the inebriated couple watching Street Trash, I am reminded of the humor book DAVE BARRY SLEPT HERE, in which Barry points out that the Bill of Rights guarantees that "if you are watching a movie and the person in front of you is making comments, and we mean perceptive comments, like when the character is getting in the car and the person says, 'He's getting in the car now,' you have the right to say "Shhh!" three times in an increasingly warning manner, after which you have the righ to kill that person with a stick."

Rhiannon, I'm just being facetious about the reviewing movies that are too good. Review what you want and continue to entertain us!

You guys might enjoy the TV series "LEGION" which definitely has David Lynch and horror influences. It's about a guy named David Haller who is diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age but is really a powerful mutant (very loosely tied to the FOX X-Men franchise). David is an unreliable narrator for the story and sometimes has trouble recognizing what is real or what the evil force in the show has implanted in his head.
