Cinecast Episode 420 – Nightmare Fuel

It ain’t quite April 20th, but it’s four-twenty in the Cinecast house. Christmas Terror and misogynous Teddy bears bookend this episode with some stoner comedy and Shakespeare and Stop Motion in between. If your hosts seem to ramble and get lost in the weeds once in a while, that is apropos the episode number! Also, Rest In Peace Robert Loggia. Onwards!

I liked KRAMPUS, though I ended up having to comfort my girlfriend, who didn’t like the film at all, mostly for how it ends (she generally doesn’t like horror films made after 1999).

BTW, check out the Canadian horror anthology A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY, which played at both Fantasia and Toronto After Dark, for a completely different interpretation of Krampus. The film is now on VOD and I believe it will be getting a blu-ray release shortly.

They always seem to come in pairs, don’t they?

I also loved Ted 2. It was unusually funny for a recent mainstream comedy and it’s got tons of replay value. I’d rank it in my top 10 films of the year so far.

I also agree with Kurt that Family Guy can be bullying. I’d describe it as mean spirited towards celebrities, with a lack of empathy bordering on psychopathic, AT TIMES.

The joke about Britney Spears, for example, when she was going through hell at the hands of the media was, I thought, particularly nasty.

The show seems to have actually started to get funny semi regularly this season. I’m guessing a combination of a new writer(s) and / or the current writers coming off / starting to partake in, drugs.
