Episode 124: The Craven

After doing episodes on such favourites as John Carpenter, John Landis, Tom Savini, Tobe Hooper and others; we realized that we were missing one of horror’s luminaries: Wes Craven.

From his early beginnings working with Sean S. Cunningham, his days in the XXX film industry, his reinvention of the horror landscape not once but twice, directing Meryl Streep to an Oscar nomination, and everything in-between we take a look at the man and his films going over our favourites and why we feel his movies deserve to stand the test of time. Sure, they weren’t all zingers but you can’t deny how important his career would be for the genre.

As always we begin by talking about what we’ve been watching which includes a teenage girl’s obsession with a killer, an introduction to the doppelganger we call Robert Bronzi, a TV film with a serious message that still offers dated entertainment, WWE takes on slasher movies as Josh watched BOTH See No Evil entries, a look at this year’s most divisive film JOJO RABBIT, the triumphant return of the Wilderness Family and so much more!
