Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast: Scary Movie V & Jason and the Argonauts

Posted: 04/15/2013 9:38 am

Scary Movie V opened this week! Yeah, us neither. So instead of delving in-depth into this weekend's big release (takeaway: A Haunted House was much funnier), Cinefantastique Online's Steve Biodrowski and I deliver a quick capsule review, and then Lawrence French joins us for a fiftieth anniversary discussion of stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen's epic fantasy (actually directed by Don Chaffey), Jason and the Argonauts. Featuring such wondrous creatures as winged harpies, a deadly hydra, and an armed troop of bloodthirsty skeletons, the film stands at the pinnacle of Harryhausen's career, and well worth discovering if you've never seen it before. But if you're still faltering: Scary Movie V sets a baby on fire. So there's that.

Plus: What's coming to theaters this weekend.
