Saturday Frights Podcast Episode 043 (Shocker)

Welcome back friends to the Saturday Frights Podcast! Each podcast my co-host, the Projectionist and I will discuss a particular horror movie or horror themed TV episode from the Retroist Vault. With the recent passing of Wes Craven we felt it would be appropriate to discuss one of his films, in this case we chose 1989’s “Shocker”. Our friends from Scream Factory also happen to be releasing a collector’s edition Blu-Ray today so you can go pick it up after listening to the podcast. On this episode I give a brief synopsis of the film and the Projectionist has made sure to bring along a few Drive-In audio goodies for your enjoyment.

If you have any suggestions for topics you would like for us to cover in the future or comments, email them to me at VicSage@Retroist.com . You can also contact me on Twitter and on Facebook. The Projectionist may be reached at https://www.facebook.com/projectionist.haunteddrivein if you have any comments or questions for the shadowy cinephile from Haddonfield.

Swamp Thing (1982)

I’m pretty sure we can all agree that Wes Craven’s 1982 Swamp Thing film adaptation is the best…um, film adaptation of Swamp Thing.

Not only did it have that awesome theatrical poster by Richard Hescox but it had a trailer too…that is very 80s.

My Father and I watched this at the 62 Drive-In back in my youth and I can say that I still enjoy it, sure it’s goofy but it is a fun movie to watch in the early morning. I guess you could say I just have a soft spot of moss in my heart for creatures like Swamp Thing and his Marvel Comics counterpart, the Man-Thing.

A big thanks as always to the IMP Awards for that awesome poster up top. Thanks as well to DIOTD2008 for the original theatrical trailer over on YouTube. That awesome What If? scenario with Swamp Thing and the Man-Thing throwing down comes to us by way of Gav Heryng on deviantART.
