Valentine's Day is anything but ordinary for radio shock-jock Grant Mazzy after he runs into a crazed woman on the way to work -- and that's just the beginning as scores of other people in the small Ontario town of Pontypool start acting awfully odd.
Tower of Terror(1997) NR-
Steve Guttenberg stars as a tabloid reporter who wants to return to mainstream journalism; all he needs is a big story. He gets one when he happens upon the mystery surrounding the disappearance of five people at an old luxury hotel in the 1930s.

Dark Discussions Episode 027 - Halloween Special Top Ten


Horror film fans, welcome to a special edition of Dark Discussions. Horror, horror, and more horror. We drop the science fiction, the techno-thrillers, and the fantasy films for a straight out take on the films that make Samhain and Halloween the time of year we all love. But what makes a great horror film? What keeps us up at night? And most importantly what makes us shift in our seats while we watch a good horror tale at a cinema or on a television?
Who hasn’t done top ten lists? Until now, Dark Discussions has not. Now that we are at the midyear point of our existence and you, listeners, know us through your iPods and computers, we figured it was time to list the films that make us get that little knot of dread in our stomachs when we watch them. Eric, Philip, and Mike present each their top ten lists of horror. You won’t find any films on our lists for historical importance. No Nosferatu, no Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Simply horror and only horror.
For a hint of what we have for you, we each put together our own top ten mostly based on production value, rewatchability, and impact on our fear level. Mike has two directors with two films each represented. Philip has one director with two films on his list, but a different director than the two Mike has listed. And only one film is represented on all three lists. Philip gives his in alphabetical order while Eric and Mike are much more confident in their rankings.
Dark Discussions would like to salute you, faithful listeners, for letting us discuss with you the things which scare us these past six months. So to all of you, a very hardy thank you.

Vicis Interimo Episode 93: The Devils Backbone


Welcome to episode 93! This week we discuss 'The Devil's Backbone', a 2001 Spanish horror/thriller directed by Guillermo del Toro. Stay tuned to the end of the show after the final music, as we make some additional comments regarding the title of the movie. Our 'laid to rest' segment didn't have much... just a confirmation that we didn't care for last week's movie! Lori (that's me) mentions once again the totally awesome Harry Potter fanfiction 'Rise of the Phoenix'. Our 'Garbage In- Garbage Out' segment is short, as we haven't had the time this week to watch many movies or shows. Short mentions include the TV shows 'Person of Interest' and 'Terra Nova', as well as Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland'.
The Devil's Backbone: El Espinazo del Diablo (2001) R:
Twelve-year-old Carlos (Fernando Tielve) is the latest arrival at Santa Lucia School, an imposing stone building that shelters orphans of the Republican militia and politicians during the last days of the Spanish Civil War. Carlos gradually uncovers the dark ties that bind the inhabitants of the school: hidden riches, sexual intrigue and the restless ghost of a murdered student, who may be the only one to provide resolution.

Dark Discussions Podcast #25 - Robert Englund's Inkubus



Episode 025 - Robert Englund's Inkubus

Inkubus, a new and exciting horror movie, filmed in Rhode Island and starring Robert Englund, William Forsythe, Joey Fatone, and Jonathan Silverman, premiered on October 15th, 2011 at the horror convention Rock and Shock in Worcester, Massachusetts. Dark Discussions was able to attend and both prior and after the viewing received full access to the film makers as well as a number of the cast and crew. Philip and Gordon interview talented first time director Glenn Ciano and learn first hand about his vision and the background of an incredibly powerful horror film. Also Ben DeLuca, the cinematographer, ponders his role and what makes it one of the most frightening movie experiences in psychological horror to date.
The film extends to a limited release on October 28th, 2011 right in time for Halloween and by early 2012 will be available on demand to over 80 million homes. Philip and Gordon give their thoughts on a very scary and well made film but first listen to Robert Englund and William Forsythe during round table discussions and interview various members of the cast and crew. As if in attendance with Dark Discussions, all our listeners get passes behind the curtain and learn first hand from all the participants about not only the making of this top notch film but also possibly a new horror franchise around a villain simply known as Inkubus.

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 24: Review of The Thing (2011)



Episode 024 - Review of 2011's The Thing

Probably one of the most highly anticipated films in years and also one of the most dreaded films in years as fans of John Carpenter’s The Thing have fallen on either side of the fence on whether anything should be done to his classic film. Some have been waiting for a second film featuring the 1982 universe that John Carpenter created while others have been horrified that this is just Hollywood once more attempting to make a new franchise. The new film simply entitled The Thing (2011) is released with a large marketing campaign at the right time of year only weeks prior to Halloween. With hot, hip, and beautiful actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead starring, and with a plot that takes place immediately prior to the beginnings of John Carpenter’s film, the question many had days leading up to its release would be whether fans and critics would embrace this new take on John W. Campbell’s novella, Who Goes There?
Eric, Philip, and Mike come together to discuss and review the film. With little to no spoilers, a thorough and honest review with three different perspectives should most certainly give Dark Discussions listeners all they need to know before their own viewing of the film. This episode concludes with the mail bag from listeners who give their opinions on The Omen and what Dark Discussions had to say about it in Episode 022. Once more, your hosts express gratitude for your feedback and ask for you to continue to send in opinions, potential topics, and anything else on your mind.

THE DARK HOURS: EPISODE 25: PREQUELS, SEQUELS AND REMAKES OH MY



It’s getting closer to Halloween and what better way to celebrate in the new millennium than with a bunch of remakes?
Not all is lost because the new indie serial killer character piece, A Horrible Way to Die is featured by Directer Adam Wingard. It is both refreshing and entertaining!
Then its on to the fabled story before the remake, The Thing Zero! Or is that The Thing 2011? Either way its a new film featuring our favorite shape shifting creepy crawly. Is this one worth your Halloween bucks? Tune in to find out!
Finally its a return to one of my favorite segments, Controversy focusing on Halloween itself, or more accurately the remake of the sequel to the original that was remade a couple years ago by none other than Rob Zombie himself! Is there any other artist out there who inspires such hatred, such enmity? Check it out and make sure you share your opinions about this contentious filmmaker!

 Crazy as Hell(2002) R
Ty Adams (Mike Beach) is an outlaw psychiatrist whose nontraditional approach has made him a hero in some circles and a kook in others. He meets his intellectual match in a male patient (Eriq La Salle) claiming to be Satan, and it may just be the doctor, not the patient, who unravels right before the watchful gaze of filmmakers recording Adams's exploits for a documentary. Eriq La Salle also directed the film.

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 023 - The STate of Vampires Part 2



As the 1990’s begin, the tale of nosferatu, the vampire, follows many different approaches that quite differ from the historical monster known to be the spawn of hell and an enemy of Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church. With Anne Rice’s 1973 novel Interview With the Vampire produced for the big screen, vampires, though still quite violent and horrific, start to take on a new face. Romantic themes permeate the back story as death and loss follow every move of the creatures of the night. Vampires as central characters become the focus of such films.
As protagonists and antiheroes, the vampire becomes an individual that film audiences are more able to feel for but as a result the horror element begins to fade from the mythos. Stories such as Underworld and Blade make the monster almost appear as if they are superheroes. Action and stylized violence brings a rebirth to a tired genre but also makes fans of the traditional monster wish for the bygone days.
While such series as the Twilight Saga bring in a new audience of fans, those searching for the vampire as a monster are offered such films as 30 Days of Night, Stakeland and Let the Right One In bringing hope to the devotee of traditional vampires. Other takes include a scientific approach such as Daybreakers, a gothic return to the Hammer days with Lesbian Vampire Killers, the Korean film Thirst filled with Catholicism essentials, and a coming of age horror tale The Hamiltons.
Dark Discussions continues with their second part of their vampire retrospective. Philip and Mike talk about how the vampire has changed these past few years and what it means to cinema and the history of the monster. From Dusk Till Dawn to 2011’s Fright Night, though the vampire may have changed, their taste for human blood has not. Come listen, faithful listeners, as we all wait for the sun to rise.

Dark Discussions Podcast Episode 022 - The Omen



Throughout millennia the devil has caused more fear in the hearts of humanity than any other being. The incarnate of evil and the ruler of hell, Satan has tempted the fate of man from the very beginning. When St. John the Divine wrote the Book of Revelations in which the end of the world was to come, he described that prior to the closing stages of the present, a man would come that would lead an apocalypse. And that man would be the antichrist, the son of Satan.
In the late 1960’s, specifically in the United States of America, a fear of demonic and satanic cults swept the nation. Churches and communities became paranoid with the changes to society and at points were taken with the belief that all was related to the devil himself and his power over humanity. Following the wave of hysteria, culture followed where authors and movie producers took note and began producing suspenseful horror fiction that went straight to the top of best seller lists and box office gross.
In the mid 1970’s 20th Century Fox released the Richard Donner directed film, The Omen, a story about a little boy from a wealthy political family that may be much more than what he actually seems to be. With Jerry Goldsmith’s Academy Award winning score, with Gregory Peck starring, surrounded by a great supporting cast, the movie was critically well received, triumphed at the box office, and has become a classic in the same breath with such films as The Godfather, Star Wars, and On the Water Front.
Dark Discussions’ hosts, Eric and Philip, converse about the film in detail and how it has resonated with both film historians as well as horror fans alike. With its fantastic screenplay, great acting, and fabulous score, every fan of film, never mind horror stories, should partake in the viewing of this spectacular movie.
