Daughters of Darkness - 8/30/14

This week, we revel in the euro-horror delights of Colin's pick, 1971's Daughters of Darkness, in which John Karlen (Dark Shadows) and his new bride, vacationing abroad, find themselves holed-up in an opulent, off-season hotel with a lesbian vampire (who may or may not be the infamous blood countess, Elisabeth Bathory) and her seductive assistant.  Is this one of the great, forgotten vampire-movie masterpieces?  Or a forgettable piece of grindhouse-meets-arthouse trash?  Find out on this week's exciting show!

Badlands - 8/23/14

This week, Brent chooses Terrence Malick's 1973 road drama Badlands, starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek as young lovers who embark on a spree-killing trip through the rural Southwest.  The movie, loosely based on the real-life murders of Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate, was adopted into the National Film Registry in 1993.  Join us at the bar as we talk James Dean, counterculture, the influence of the film on Quentin Tarantino, and more on this week's scholarly episode of film talk!

Foxy Brown - 8/9/14

This week, Colin takes us back to the groovy '70's with the Blaxsploitation classic Foxy Brown (1974).  Foxy (Pam Grier), a "whole lot of woman" - as described by one character, goes on a revenge rampage after her undercover cop-boyfriend is gunned down by thugs from a heroin syndicate.  This was Grier's follow up to her breakout role in Coffy the year prior, and was initially titled "Burn, Coffy, Burn".  Hear how it all went down when Foxy Brown came to town on this week's episode.  Can you dig it?
