Dustin runs down the movie's long reaching influence despite poor box office performance. But before all that, we've got an update on The Acolyte and Dustin dishes on a must pick up new release blu-ray for Japanese film collectors. And so much more!

    In this episode, we return once more to the world of Giallo by way of Dustin's pick. Or do we? Join us for the thrilling debate on whether it belongs in the black gloved grasp of the Gialli subgenre as we check out Emilio P. Miraglia's The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave from 1971. Jason tries to unpack the film's shaky logic. Dustin celebrates the movie's weirdness and odd similarities with a certain pink film we've covered in the past. But before all that, we recap our weekend trip to Origins Game Fair and two thrilling nights of dumpster diving Tubi to find some bad shark movies. And so much more!

But before all that, Dustin makes a pleasant modern Full Moon discovery. And so much more!

    Episode 088: Scarecrow Gone Wild (2004)

    In this episode, we dig into another listener suggestion and tackle what may be our first ever troll submission; or is it? Buckle up and shield your mind as we descend into schlocky shelf-warmer sequel territory to check out Brian Katkin's Scarecrow Gone Wild from 2004. Together, we riff our way through the film while puzzling over the many decisions made with its plot and production. But before all that, Jason sings praises for the latest Mad Max flick and Dustin weighs his undying love for Full Moon against a pair of disappointing features. And so much more!

    Episode 087: Heroic Purgatory (1970)

    In this episode, we get lost into the absurdly surreal world of Kiju Yoshida's Heroic Purgatory from 1970. Serving as Dustin's Lynchian avant-garde counter pick to our prior film, this one covers much of the same ground, focusing and drawing inspiration from the same student revolts that served as source material for Kichiku; only everything is a whole lot weirder. Jason finds appreciation in the film's liminal nature, but weighs that against the absurdity of the film's narrative. Dustin goes off the arthouse deep end, celebrating the film's many odd aspects. But before all that, the gauntlet is hurled down as we talk AI art being used in film. And so much more!

    Dustin's J-Horror Journal Episode 01: Death Forest (2014)

    Dustin's J-Horror Journal Episode 01: Death Forest (2014)

    In this special bonus episode of Genre Exposure, we've had a bit of a scheduling crisis making Jason unavailable to record. So Dustin takes to the microphone solo to chat more about Japanese Horror. We've decided to spin the prior filler episode in this style into its own series that for now will crop up during emergency situations like this. For this official inaugural episode, Dustin chats about the 2014 flick Death Forest, which somehow spawned a four sequel franchise and draws inspiration from a killer little indie horror game. He chases down not only the history, but goes on a tangent about Slenderman after realizing the game's similarities to The Eight Pages. All that and more!
    With any luck, we shall return to our regularly scheduled program in the usual two weeks out. While this is mostly meant as filler, if you dig this and want to hear more of these, reach out and let us know.

A superior find

After getting caught up in the discourse surrounding the movie “The Sound of Freedom” I got in the mood for a deep dive into another flick that exploited the people it purported to elevate- “Cannibal Holocaust”. I listened to 25 different podcasts and found 20 repeated the same conversations, largely reading aloud the entries on the movie from Wikipedia and IMDB. This podcast was one of the 5 that stood out enough for me to listen to more of their back catalogue. At the end of the day, this is one of the 4 that I subscribed to, finding that it has discourse and content that you won’t find on the vast majority of other podcasts. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Check it out!

A fun engaging podcast whose only downside is my hurts from buying all the movies they talk about. They cover a broad range of genre films and In always excited for the next episode.
