Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast: Thanksgiving Spotlight!

Posted: Updated:

Okay, admittedly that's an inaccurate title -- we're still a few weeks out from the festive family get-together, none of the films we're discussing in this ep are holiday-themed, and none could fairly be called a turkey (and for that last we are truly thankful). This is just our way of saying that there wasn't any big genre film opening in theaters this past weekend, so we've taken the opportunity to rally up the stuff that we prepped for other shows -- public domain titles, films celebrating the 50th anniversary of their release, homevid releases etc. -- and sat down to trade opinions and recommendations.

The discussion features Cinefantastique Online regulars Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French and I, and among the titles discussed are the freaky beat-horror film, Dementia (aka Daughter of Horror), the surreal The Beast with Five Fingers, the Japanese killer fungus film Matanga, plus White Zombie, Night Tide, and Farscape: The Complete Series. If you can't find something worth watching in that roundup, kid, you should probably turn in your geek credentials.
