After a passionate discussion of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Dan Persons and Steve Biodrowski leave the recorder running as they delve deeply into the minutia of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. This week focuses on films that recycle plots and/or footage to create alternate versions and/or whole new movies:

* Exorcist: The Beginning and Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist
* Digging for Gold, the 1934 German science-fiction film cannibalized for the final act of the low-budget 1953 sci-fi flick The Magnetic Monster
* Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut on DVD

Also, the RiffTrax version of Carnival of Souls, Cinematic Titanic, and listener mail on the joys of Mario Bava and the wisdom of target release dates .
