Cinecast Episode 367 – Ginormous

After our brief September hiatus we are back to talk about…well…being ‘off the air’ for most of the month. Kurt gives (brief) highlights on the best things he saw at the Toronto International Film Festival. With no interest in either seeing or talking about Young Adult yawnfest The Maze Runner or A Walk Among The Tombstones (aka Taken 4), there is a brief conversation on last weeks’ cinema release, James Gandolfini’s final film, The Drop, a Brooklyn small-time gangster picture which also showcases a fine Tom Hardy performance. We go back to 1984 to re-examine the Joe Dante classic Gremlins. And there is a quite varied Watchlist including The Devil’s Rain, Open Range, Karate Kid III, Night of the Demon and Live.Die.Repeat.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

You can count me as someone who has a very genre-heavy TIFF line-up this year.

Of the 22 films I saw, 7 were in Midnight Madness, 5 were in Vanguard, and there were another 2-3 films I saw in other programmes that can be considered genre.

Also, even though it’s very easy to have second thoughts about a film after hearing about so many people (at least four) that hate it, I’m still going to stand by BANG BANG BABY as a film I enjoyed.

Also Kurt, you forgot to mention THE EDITOR (my favourite Midnight Madness film this year)

I actually watched GREMLINS 2 first when I was a kid and it wasn’t until much later that I saw the first.

I would actually argue that GREMLINS 2 is Dick Miller’s biggest role, since not only did his character survive in the first, but he has a somewhat expanded role.

Also, Robert Picardo with hair and Christopher Lee being Christopher Lee.

If you liked Night/Curse of the Demon, you probably ought to check out Night of the Eagle aka Burn Witch Burn which is in a similar vein.

Also, in many ways Drag Me to Hell is a takeoff of Night/Curse of the Demon.

Robert: Also the 1961 Canadian B&W 3D horror film “THE MASK”
