Frankenstein (1931) & Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Join us for the second part of our two Halloween specials for Spooktober! As we go back to the origins of Hollywood horror and tackle the King of the Universal Monster Movies; Frankenstein and the following sequel Bride of Frankenstein. Both directed by James Whale, who can be thought of as a early auteur for horror and Hollywood expressionism. We talk about how Universal got into making horror, how Frankenstein got adapted, how the Heys code impacted the two movies and how Whale's identity and that of his actors contributed to those movies and have been read over the years as Queer cinema.

Brain Damage (1988)

Join us for the first part of our two Halloween specials for Spooktober! Frank Henenlotter made his name with exploitation horror movie Basket Case and would follow this up with the story of Brian, an average New York city guy who becomes dependent on an evil, disembodied parasitic brain named Aylmer. Who eats brains to supply Brian with an hallucinogenic drug. It's psychedelic, detestable, and hysterical. And a must watch.

We also talk a lot about new releases particularly news from the DC Fandome and Bond.

Akira (1988)

Set in a dystopian 2019, Akira tells the story of Kaneda, a leader of a biker gang whose childhood friend, Tetsuo, acquires incredible telekinetic abilities after a motorcycle accident, eventually threatening an entire military complex amid chaos and rebellion in the sprawling futuristic metropolis of Neo-Tokyo.  Katsuhiro Otomo's magnum opus Akira was released to international acclaim in 1988, not only was it a spectacular example of animated film, quite beyond anything that had been produced at the time, but it was the first Japanese anime that had been released uncut and unedited outside of Japan. It rightly took America and Europe by storm and issued an awakening of Japanese animation.
