Episode 59: Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker
One of the absolute strangest movies of the early-80s, featuring a bravado performance by the wonderful Susan Tyrrell as THE WORST PRIMARY CAREGIVER EVER and shockingly progressive, LGBT+ themes, Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker is a one-of-a-kind fever dream of a film, exactly the kind of thing that Madeline Koestner likes to subject me to, and I'm better for it.
Content Warning: Generally uncomfortable sexual themes/assault discussion.
Episode 58: Horror Express
More Peter Cushing!
Diamond Feit is back to talk about Horror Express, one of the funnest, silliest, wackiest, goofiest horror movies of the early-70s. And not only does it star my all-time favorite actor of all-time, Peter Cushing, but it also features my second-favorite actor of all-time; Christopher Lee. And someone who would probably make the top 10 or so; Telly Savalas! This movie kicks ass.
Episode 57: Twins of Evil
This Halloween I decided to spread the gospel of the Hammer House of Horror by subjecting Hammer virgin Anthony Abatte to one of my favorite films from the studio, 1971's Twins Of Evil! Not only does it have a standout performance by the legendary Peter Cushing, but the, ahem, titular characters are really something else too.
We also have a quick spoiler-free discussion about the new Halloween Ends, and rattle off some other horror movies you might want to check out this Halloween weekend.
Episode 56: The Taking of Beverly Hills
"Die Hard but in Beverly Hills" is elevator pitch for The Taking of Beverly Hills. And while the film looked like a sure-fire hit on paper thanks to its star, the then white-hot Ken Wahl, and it's director, Sidney J. Furie, the didn't even get the chance to fade into obscurity - it debuted there.
Rob Hill from The Bad Movie Bible joins me to try and find out why.
Content warning; When discussing Wahl's past, I quote some homophobic things other people said.
Episode 55: Million Dollar Mermaid
The original idea of this podcast was to focus on the types of films they don't make anymore and "Technicolor underwater musicals" certainly fit that bill. Diana Goodman of 30-20-10 joins me today to talk about Million Dollar Mermaid.
If you thought movies like The Avengers were spectacle, you ain't seen nothing yet.
Episode 54: Foul Play
We're 70s AF today on Cinema Oblivia. How 70s? We got a movie by the writer of Harold & Maude, starring Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn, and featuring a hit single by Barry Manilow. That's how 70s.
Foul Play is a wacky little comedy that is very much of its era, and I'm happy that Diamond Feit called me up to talk about it! Check it out!
