Episode 42- Asian Kaiju, Greasy Stranglers, and Ugandan Cinema

After successfully booting…
Then booting…
Then booting…

Then rallying, we’re back with the second half of our FANTASTIC FEST coverage. Too much action for only two episodes. Stay tuned this week, for more episodes featuring Matt and Trevor talking about the movies (and television shows) that you should be looking forward to in the weeks and months to come.

Today we discuss:

M. Night Shyamalan’s newest film, SPLIT, featuring the talented James McEvoy and Anna Taylor Joy.

THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS. A brand new zombie movie that is a fresh take on the genre and got Trevor excited about zombies again. Bonus: Movie is positive for Glenn Close vs. Zombies.

BAD BLACK. A curiosity from the country of Uganda that takes your eyelids and staples them to the back wall, between fits of howling laughter.

THE GREASY STRANGLER. Can a movie that was made to challenge the audience to hate it, find its audience? Evidently they did. The film’s star Michael St. Michaels gives us an exclusive interview.

SHIN GODZILLA (aka GODZILLA RESURGENCE). The latest Toho adaptation of the giant screaming lizard, finds the focus not on the destructive beast, but on the government’s monstrous reactions.

A MONSTER CALLS. Giant beasts, fanciful whisy, a tale about growing up. Excuse us… there’s something in our eyes.

COLOSSAL. An exciting new feature from Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo, starring Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis. Is it a drama about love and redemption? Is it a Kaiju movie? Why not both?
