I'm a massive Alfred Hitchcock fan and Psycho is one of my favorite films. The idea of making a sequel to that classic film twenty some odd years later is a fascinating concept to me. Does this much later sequel hold a candle to the original?

"After twenty-two years of psychiatric care, Norman Bates attempts to return to a life of solitude, but the specters of his crimes - and his mother - continue to haunt him."

The Guest was a movie that I was longing to see and always seemed to miss it when it was streaming. This year however the stars finally aligned and The Guest hit Netflix just when I needed it most.

Today's episode of Shocktober 2020 features the first movie that actually came out in 2020. Just one of the few that actually made it out this year. The trailer and reaction caught my attention, but is it a good horror film?

I've been open about my love for Kevin Smith and his work, But Red State was one of his movies that had just missed me through the years. I had seen bits and pieces of Red State before but I've always wanted to get through the whole film, and Shocktober was the perfect excuse.

Oct 5, 2020

In the tradition of using Shocktober to check off movies that I missed, Don't Breathe is actually one of the first movies to make the cut. I really enjoyed The Evil Dead remake and this director blew me away so much that I knew I would watch any horror movie he made after.

It's hard to cover a whole month of horror films and not review at least one zombie movie. A short film turned into a whole feature, Cargo at least takes a unique spin on the genre. The main horror here is time, rather than the zombies or desperate humans, although they are there too.

The second Shocktober movie for 2020 is a late 2019 addition. A film called We Summon the Darkness. It's not rare for heavy metal to sneak into a horror film, but is this movie metal enough?

"Three best friends embark on a road trip to a heavy-metal show, where they bond with three aspiring musicians and head off to one of the girls' country home for an after-party."

It's the beginning of spooky season! My favorite season leading up to my favorite holiday. Every October I attempt to watch and review a horror film for every day in October. I call it Shocktober (did not make that up to be clear!) Today we start with the first film of the month, the 2019 film Ready or Not.

Sep 7, 2020

This honestly may be one of my favorite episodes of the podcast. Today I sat down with comic writer Joe Khachadurian (Identity Stunt) as we discuss the Image comics release of Kevin Smith's script turned comic for The Green Hornet. Written by Smith originally for a movie that was never made, the script was eventually revived and transformed into a comic book. Today we talk about that comic book and what movie we could have gotten, and compare it to the Seth Rogen movie we eventually did get.

Written By: Kevin Smith

Logline: Following the death of his father, Britt Reid, heir to his father's large company, teams up with his late dad's assistant Kato to become a masked crime fighting team.

Towards the end of 2017 a short video dropped onto the internet that got Resident Evil fans a buzz. The short was called Dave and it was described as being a pitch for a Resident Evil television show called Arklay. Today I sit down with one of the creators of the short Shawn Lebert. We talk about the making of the film and what the original hopes and plans were for a Resident Evil television show. We also discuss where he is and what he's doing today.

The short can be watched here - https://vimeo.com/239290092

Aug 17, 2020

Today's episode is one that I am really proud of. Long ago a movie website called Screened used to do a feature called Defending Your Movie. I used to love the feature and when the website ended I missed it a lot. So I decided to revive the idea on my podcast. I even reached out and got the original creators' permission. So this is our first attempt at doing just that. My good friend Adam Condra came on to talk about a movie that we both have a fondness for, 2012'2 Lockout starring Guy Pearce.

Today is a very special interview episode with our first film director. Dwight Little is most known for directing the sequel Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, but he's had a fascinating career. We talk about his early days of getting into film all the way up to the reason I wanted to talk to him in the first place, directing the Tekken movie. We also discuss his time working with Brandon Lee and Steven Seagal.

Well the show is officially back! After a long hiatus the first new episode is looking at a script I've been wanting to read for a long time now. Based on my all time favorite video game series, today we are looking at the script for the reboot of the Mortal Kombat film. There's a lot of new stuff to talk about at the beginning of the show and the future but I hope you enjoy the first episode back!

Feb 27, 2020

So I wasn't sure if I wanted to cover this or not as I've had a personal rule for the podcast from the beginning. I generally strayed away from scripts that I couldn't be 100% sure were authentic but in the end its impossible to be 100% sure if ANY of the scripts covered are authentic so I figured that this was at least worth covering.

On the last episode I sat down with a guest and we discussed the leaked bullet points from the alleged Star Wars script. Well that was going to be that but the next day when I was editing the episode I saw that the full script had leaked out. Well I didn't want to drag Nick back to re-record so I decided to go through the script and dive into the details in this more thorough look at the Duel of Fates script.

The Star Wars sequel trilogy has been a divisive series to say the least but most people seem to agree that The Rise of Skywalker felt more like fan service than a Last Jedi sequel. The question now is would the Trevorrow version have made any difference?

Written By: Colin Trevorrow

Logline: The ultimate conclusion to the Star Wars arc comes to a clash as Rey and the Resistance seek to topple Supreme Leader Kylo Ren and the First Order.

So allegedly a Reddit use got their hands on an early Episode IX script written by Colin Trevorrow before he was no longer attached to the project. Now apparently it has been independently verified which is what makes covering this feel okay to me. There was also some concept art out there that Trevorrow confirmed were from his version.

Dec 11, 2019

Well this is maybe the most excited I've ever been for an episode to drop. Today's guest is David Hayter. Video game fans will know him as the voice actor of Solid Snake from the Metal Gear franchise., Fans of screenwriting and comic book movies may know him as the writer of major comic book films such as X-Men, X-2, and Watchmen, the latter of which brings us together today.

We discuss David's contributions to the comic book movie genre as a whole while we follow his path from writing the first draft of Watchmen and the journey it took to the big screen while clearing up some rumors along the way. He also doesn't shy away from throwing a little shade.

David can be found on Twitter.

David has a show on Netflix in 2020 called Warrior Nun.

Dec 6, 2019

Well I've been in a work coma since Thanksgiving that isn't ending anytime before Christmas. There's one new episode coming for the rest of the year which will be an interview with a very special guest (Next week and you're not going to want to miss this!) This will also be the last repost of the year but I thought I would squeeze one more in while I'm working over 60 hours for the next couple weeks.

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION

In 2009 Dragon Ball Evolution was barfed into cinemas to a much maligned response. It threw away everything that everyone knew and loved about the show and instead presented the most bare bones and boring interpretation of the classic anime/manga. Well little did we know the script to the movie was actually much close to the source material so I brought in my buddy and fellow Dragon Ball fanatic Nick Almendarez, professional wrestler and founder of Freelance Wrestling in Chicago, do discuss the Dragon Ball movie that could have been.

Nov 18, 2019

Well we are getting ever closer to Star Wars Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker which is a perfect time to revisit the third episode of the podcast when we looked at George Lucas's original rough draft simply called The Star Wars.

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION

This week Jeremy says the correct email address for the first time as he gathers with his fellow Star Wars geek Maggie to discuss George Lucas’s original rough draft for The Star Wars. This is quite an interesting read that is a must for any Star Wars fan that may have heard the stories but doesn’t know the details. Jeremy and Maggie dive deep into the mind of George Lucas and try to figure out how George Lucas went from this draft, to the Star Wars trilogy we all know and love today.

Nov 7, 2019

Today's episode is going to be a little different. An early draft of the Joker script leaked out but honestly there aren't a ton of differences between the script and the final film. There are enough to merit discussion but not enough to fill a whole episode so instead this episode is going to be split in two. The first part will discuss the differences between the script and film and the second half will be a review of the final film.

Written By: Todd Phillips and Scott Silver

Logline: In Gotham City, mentally-troubled comedian Arthur Fleck is disregarded and mistreated by society. He then embarks on a downward spiral of revolution and bloody crime. This path brings him face-to-face with his alter-ego: "The Joker".

Nov 7, 2019

So while browsing the podcast feed on Apple Podcasts I noticed that a lot of older episodes are cycling out of the feed. I've decided to start re-posting older episodes on off weeks with no new episode so if you want to go back and listen to them you have the option. I already re-posted the first episode a while back so I'm jumping into the second one which works out because it keeps in the Resident Evil theme. Our second episode looked at the George Romero Resident Evil script. Enjoy.

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION

Well we made it to a second episode! It's officially a podcast. This episode is timed with the release of the new Resident Evil movie in theaters. Resident Evil The Final Chapter. A film series that has spanned 14 years and made hundreds of millions of dollars worldwide, but has always been met with tepid response. Before the series launched, George Romero, the zombie king, turned in a draft to Capcom in 1998 that they then shot down. I sat down with my horror obsessed friend Vinny Malave to discuss this rejected take on the classic franchise.

Happy Halloween everyone! Today is a special bonus episode and our third Resident Evil script of the month. I have a complicated relationship with this series of films and this one is maybe my most conflicted of the bunch, and therefore was the one I was most excited to cover. I hope you enjoy this mid week bonus episode as I discuss Resident Evil Afterlife.

Written By: Paul W. S. Anderson

Logline: While still out to destroy the evil Umbrella Corporation, Alice joins a group of survivors living in a prison surrounded by the infected who also want to relocate to the mysterious but supposedly unharmed safe haven known only as Arcadia.

Just like today's script I'm back from the dead. It's been a while since I posted the last episode but I dug myself out of my rut and actually got through a few scripts recently. The rest of this month is going to be Resident Evil themed as I take a look at the scripts for the movie's that we actually got versus the George Romero script that we previously covered.

FYI Today's episode comes with a fun drinking game for every time I saw "in the movie."

Written By: Paul W. S. Anderson

Logline: A special military unit fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating creatures after a laboratory accident.
