Movie Matters #9

In the latest episode of the Movie Matters podcast, co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie take the Left Hand Path as they delve into the world of the supernatural, examining two adaptations by the renowned Hammer studio of the black magic novels of the prolific Dennis Wheatley, 1968's THE DEVIL RIDES OUT and 1976's TO THE DEVIL A DAUGHTER. The hosts also discuss significant movies that have so far eluded them in a "Never Seen But Should Have" feature, cast their eyes over recent Blu-ray and DVD releases, and induct another Blu-ray transfer into the Movie Matters Hall of Fame.

The music sampled in this episode is from THE DEVIL RIDES OUT (James Bernard), THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN (James Bernard), HORROR OF DRACULA (James Bernard) and THE MUMMY (Franz Reizenstein).

  1. @Michael - the best of the best for spaghetti westerns (imo and that I've seen) are as follows:

    The "Dollars" Trilogy
    The Great Silence
    Four Of The Apocalypse

    The Hellbenders is not bad either.
    I have yet to see Navajo Joe, CompaƱeros and My Name Is Nobody.

    @Lee - Hobo is awesome, awesome, awesome. I blind bought The Funhouse Arrow BD and was severely let down (first time seeing it).

    @both - I thought the Obsession Arrow BD (also blind bought) looked pretty good and I highly enjoyed the film. Looking forward to the Dressed To Kill BD set to be released on 9/6 (haven't seen that film yet). I'm a big De Palma fan (even though I have yet to see DTK and The Fury, among others) and would love to get in on a special episode about him, if you decide you want a guest and don't already have an authority on him in mind.

    @both - Good ep. I have yet to see any Hammer films, which I suppose is my "glaring omission", but it sounds like Michael has some catching up do on some of those "classics" as well.
