Dissecting the Zombie Film

October 16th, 2018

Movie spoilers ahead! This week we have a drink with Bill and delve into the world of film. The occult and religion have a big role in cinema, so we narrowed our discussion to two movies that explore Santeria to... differing effects: "I Walked with a Zombie" (1943), and "Angel Heart" (1987). Join us for a drink as we chat about the actual craft of film making, the history of the medium, and give some background insight to what makes a movie spooky. We also touch on the important subject of racism and xenophobia in movies that use other cultures for shock value, the importance of doing your research, and such taboo subjects as Mickey Rourke's ass.

Check out Bill's work in I Don't Get It and American Caesar. And be sure to reach out to him on Twitter!

Movies referenced in this show include "The Haunted Castle" (1896), and E. Elias Merhige's "The Begotten" (1990).
