The Modern Horrors Podcast EP 151: Is Ghostland the New Martyrs?
We Monday’d the shit out of this episode. No prep work, no game plan. Just sit at the table and go. And we’ll be damned if it didn’t work. The true Modern Horrors way.
The news kicks off with trailers, trailers, and more trailers. THE NUN gives us a glimpse into what we can expect. No surprise that it is gorgeous, but what is surprising is that attitudes have shifted towards the movie. Sticking with religious horror, we jaunt over to Ireland to check out the historical found-footage flick THE DEVIL’S DOORWAY. Sold out in just 20 seconds, SUSU has Beijing audiences very excited, while THE ROW is a slasher that has us less excited, but there’s always a soft spot for Randy Couture. Finally, we check out UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB.
But wait! There’s more! Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch have started filming on their remake of PET SEMETARY (give the boys a chance we say). Highly anticipated SUMMER OF 84 and REVENGE both get release dates. And in news that we don’t know what we’re talking about, Ewan McGregor gets cast in Mike Flanagan’s adaptation of DR SLEEP.
This week we review INCIDENT IN A GHOSTLAND (or as you may find it, GHOSTLAND). A large portion of the fanbase has been clamoring for Pascal Laugier to return to his violent ways that we saw in the original MARTYRS. We explore whether or not this is another brutishly deep movie, or if we’re in for another TALL MAN. Last but certainly not least, we play a game from deep in the archives. 3 names that were involved in a film. 1 guess.
As always, thanks for the listens, shares, and reviews. You guys keep the show rolling! Also check out hypericon.net for information on how to see your favorite horror podcast live on July 7th!
