    Then Is Now Ep. 143 - 13 Days of Hallowtober 2023 - Wolf Man Roundup

    Then Is Now Ep. 143 - 13 Days of Hallowtober 2023 - Wolf Man Roundup

    Happy Halloween, everyone! It's finally here: Day 13 of 2023's 13 Days of Hallowtober event! Our topic this year has been werewolf films and as such we present a round table discussion of “The Wolf Man” (1941) and its remake, “The Wolfman” (2010). The original is a classic starring Lon Chaney Jr. and Claude Rains. The remake stars Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. Does it hold a candle to its predecessor? Not likely, but it does have its merits and we take a deep dive into both movies and their place in werewolf film history!
    This is presented as both a video and audio podcast, and both links are on the web page. We showed movie ads in the video, and those will be posted on the web link also.
    I'd like to thank everyone who participated in this year's event including stalwarts Spency and My-Kill, as well as Bill Van Ryn, Rod Barnett, Juan Ortiz, and the Prince Regent of EDM, Dantes Alexander!!

    Day 11: MyKill and the Prince Regent of Electronic Dance Music, Dantes Alexander, join Re-Gor on this episode of our 13 Days of Hallowtober event to discuss the werewolf film “Dog Soldiers” from 2002. Another little seen film, this one is fun, gory, and action-packed! It stars Sean Pertwee, the son of the third Dr. Who, John Pertwee, as well as Kevin McKidd, and was directed by Neil Marshall, the man who brought you the terrifying film, “The Descent” (2005)! No movie ads available, but a listing and local review are on the web page! Enjoy!

    Then Is Now Ep. 140 - 13 Days of Hallowtober 2023 - Mexican Horror: House of Terror (1960)

    Day 10: On this episode of Then Is Now's 2023 event 13 Days of Hallowtober, Juan Ortiz from the B-Movie Cast joins Re-Gor to discuss the Mexican horror classic “House of Terror” aka “La Casa Del Terror” starring comedian Tin-Tan, and surprisingly, Lon Chaney Jr. shows up as the Wolf Man!! An interesting and fun flick, we also discuss the horribly butchered, unintelligible version of the film called “Face of the Screaming Werewolf!” Definitely a fascinating discussion you should check out! And we do have movie ads for different releases of the film on the web page. Enjoy!

True fan

I love hearing details about all kinds of retro entertainment from time periods when there was more variety and freedom for creators. The hosts of this podcast are true fans, you can tell. They have a legitimate love for the topics they cover, and there are always some tidbits about certain scripts or actors or directors that I didn’t know! I look forward to each episode.

Mark of JC ,

New listener from North Jersey

I really look forward to hearing about movies and television shows that I greatly enjoy while learning about new gems that I’ve never heard of before. The show is well planned and executed.

Love it!

My kids and I listen to this show! I love hearing about the stuff I grew up with and sharing it with them. It's really opened their eyes, as the show says, "to all the cool stuff they missed out on"! Keep up the great work!
