Torture Cinema Poll: June Classics

2 Jun

Even though you probably haven’t even had the pleasure of listening to Shaun’s singing in our Queen of the Damned episode yet, it’s time to pick our torture for June! This time, we’ve decided to force you to torture us with a classic… Ok, so ‘classic’ is probably being too kind to the utter drek that you get to pick from this month. May Cthulhu have mercy on our souls.

 

325. Queen of the Damned (2002) — A Torture Cinema “Adventure” w/ Megan O’Keefe

1 Jun

Scientology theories, nipple jackets, and, oh my god, is that Shaun singing?! This month, we honestly don’t know how to describe the bizarre twists and turns the conversation takes as Megan O’Keefe joins Shaun, Paul, and Jen to discuss the fairly maligned 2002 goth-wet dream, Queen of the Damned. Basically, the only reason to watch this movie is Aaliyah, because Lestat is an anemic, no-chinned creeper.

We hope you enjoy the episode!

15 May

Gloom travels, Shadowrun, and post-soviet-collapse Russia, oh my! Shaun, Jen, and Paul, discuss the Russian urban fantasy blockbuster film, Night Watch, with special guest, Juan Sanmiguel! The group discuss American audience prejudice against foreign genre films, the fact that they’re probably missing a lot of cultural clues, and how Night Watch does a better job portraying female characters than most US urban fantasy.
