One Magic Christmas

As it is Christmas we've decided to celebrate the festive season on the podcast by watching a largely forgotten Disney film from 1985. One Magic Christmas positions itself as being a wonderful tale of Christmas but it is northing short of a depressing horror story. Where Santa decides, in order to teach the message of Christmas to a mother played by Mary Steenburgen, he needs to take some rather extreme and drastic steps. By showing her just how tough Christmas can actually be. This is all watched over by the most unlikely angel possible Harry Dean Stanton. After you've experienced One Magic Christmas you'll never quite experience Christmas in the same way again.

Staring James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn, Joan Weldon, and James Arness, the plot is simple, a nest of gigantic irradiated ants become a national threat when two young queen ants escaped to establish new nests. Filmmaker James Raynor joins us to talk about this horror classic which has some of the most amount of flamethrower action in any picture ever!

The film was based upon a true crime story of Billy Cook and it shocked audiences with it's grittiness and hard-hitting story and bizarre claustrophobia of the desert backdrop.
