Danger: Diabolik - 04/20/13

Every week, the members of the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Travis & Sean) gather in a subterranean screening room. Each week, a different member of the group chooses a movie to watch, and afterwards we enter the Thunderdome to debate the movie's merit for the entertainment of you, the listener.

On this week's episode, Colin takes us into the colorful world of a supercriminal named Diabolik who originated in Italian comic strips with Mario Bava's Danger: Diabolik (1968).  Diabolik (John Phillip Law) is a master thief in a black leather getup who robs from the mob or the government with equal enthusiasm, usually to impress his superfoxy girlfriend Eva (Marissa Mell).  Join us as we try to start the Marisa Mell Appreciation Soceity, delve deep into the career of Italian horror maestro Bava, make parellels between Danger: Diabolik and Austin Powers, James Bond and the Mission: Impossible movies, and Tom sings a cover version of the memorable title song.


LISTEN NOW!!
