Season 5: Episode 241 - THE 80’S: Nekromantik (1987)/Basket Case (1982)
Nekromantik (1987) West German horror exploitation film co-written and directed by Jörg Buttgereit. It is known to be frequently controversial, banned in a number of countries, and has become a cult film over the years due to its transgressive subject matter (including necrophilia) and audacious imagery. The film is currently banned outright in Iceland, Norway, Malaysia, Singapore, and the provinces of Nova Scotia and Ontario in Canada. In 1992, the Australian Classification Board banned the film outright in Australia due to "graphic necrophilia content". In 1993, the film was banned in Finland. The film was banned outright by the New Zealand Office of Film and Literature Classification in 1999 due to "revolting, objectionable content (necrophilia, high impact violence, animal cruelty and abhorrent behavior)". The film is banned in a number of other countries as well.  Basket Case (1982) This American horror film written and directed by Frank Henenlotter, and produced by Edgar Ievins. Kevin Van Hentenryck stars as a normal-looking person who seeks vengeance for the unwanted surgery that separated him from his deformed conjoined twin brother. The movie was shot on 16 mm film. Basket Case had a budget of only about $35,000, financed by a small production team largely with its own rental money to enable the film to be realized. Director Henenlotter did not have control over the post-production, and the result was dark, murky, and converted to a different aspect ratio. The film was shot in part on Manhattan's 42nd Street. Henenlotter wrote the film as he walked around Times Square, which he called a "seedy, wonderful atmosphere."​The special effects for Belial consist largely of a puppet in some scenes and stop motion in others. When Belial's hand is seen attacking his victims, it is really a glove worn by Henenlotter. The puppet is used in scenes with an actor and where the eyes glow red. The sequence for Belial's rampage used stop motion animation.We are joined by Matthew Brockmeyer, novelist. Opening Credits/Introduction (1.51); Oh My GOD!!!

Season 5: Episode 24 - MAKE/REMAKER: The Shining (1980)/Stephen King’s The Shining (1997)
The Shining by Stanley Kubrick is considered one of the greatest psychological horror films of our time.  Combining isolation with madness, Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall give outstanding performances.   Stephen King was excited at the prospect of Kubrick adapting his work but once the film came out, the excitement was very short lived. In 2005, Stephen King thought he would adapt his own book into a miniseries for television.  The film does stick to the book and includes many of the elements that made the book a hit but fans of Kubrick’s  film were less than enthralled wild King purist to the source material are huge fans. We are joined by Matthew Brockmeyer, Novelist of the excellent Kind Nepenthe, out now from all good bookstores. Opening Credits; Introduction (2.02); It’s A True Original (29.55); The Shining (1980) Trailer (31.50); Let’s Start At The Beginning (33.17); Final Take (1:41.52); Let’s Do A Remake (1:52.35); The Shining (1997) Trailer (1:54.31); Let’s Give It Another Go (1:56.49); Did We Need Two?

Season 5: Episode 235 - KINGS OF HORROR: American Psycho (B E Ellis)/American Psycho (2000)
Book:American PsychoBy Brett Easton Ellis​Film:American Psycho (2003) A novel by Bret Easton Ellis, published in 1991. The story is told in the first person by Patrick Bateman, a serial killer and Manhattan investment banker. Alison Kelly of The Observer notes that while "some countries [deem it] so potentially disturbing that it can only be sold shrink-wrapped", "critics rave about it" and "academics revel in its transgressive and postmodern qualities"  The book would epitomise the 80’s in every sense of the word and would be one of the most controversial during that time.​The film was directed by Mary Harron and starting Christian Bale, the film would give a satirical look at the novel.  Set in the 1980s, the film focuses on the actions of Patrick Bateman, the self-proclaimed "American psycho" of the title. While at first glance Bateman is a yuppie New York City investment banker, he is gradually revealed to be living a gruesome second life as a serial killer preying on prostitutes, work colleagues, and finally random members of the public. Producer Edward R. Pressman purchased the film rights to the novel in 1992. After discussions with David Cronenberg fell through, Harron was brought on to direct and cast Bale in the lead role. Lionsgate acquired worldwide distribution in 1997 and temporarily replaced Harron and Bale with Oliver Stone as director and Leonardo DiCaprio portraying Patrick Bateman. DiCaprio left in favor of The Beach and Harron and Bale were brought back. We are joined by Matthew Brockmeyer, writer and novelist and Steven Templeman, film aficionado.  Opening Credits; Introduction (1.39); Forming the Plot (14.39); Plot Synopsis (15.50); Book Thoughts (20.25); Rating a Book (1:07.44); Introducing a Film (1:17.20); Film Trailer (1:19.14);  Lights, Camera, Action (1:21.19); Epilogue (2:19.54); End Credits (2:34.24); Closing Credits (2:36.27) Opening Credits– Classical Jingle by Dan Hughes Closing Credits – That’s Just What You Are – Aimee Mann.  Taken from the album I’m With Stupid.  Copyright 1994 Geffen Records Original Music copyrighted 2020 Dan Hughes Music and the Literary License Podcast.  All rights reserved. All songs available through Amazon.

Season 5: Episode 234 - INTERVIEWS: The Mark B Perry Interview
The Mark B Perry Interview Mark B Perry is the writer and producer of the new Dark Shadows Reincarnation series currently in preproduction. Mark B. Perry grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, where his childhood love of Carl Reiner's The Dick Van Dyke Show inspired him to pursue a writing career-after all, doing what Rob, Buddy, and Sally did all day sure looked like a great way to make a living. Because the University of Georgia lacked a prestigious film school at the time, Mark cobbled his own degree together from film and TV classes in the Henry W. Grady School of Journalism, supplemented by studies in play-writing, acting, directing, and cinema in the theater department. Before graduating with a bachelor's in broadcast journalism, Mark won the Claude P. Callison Award (or "Claudie" as it was known back in the day) for excellence in filmmaking by a student. After a brief sojourn writing and producing industrials for the local newspapers and a variety of companies including Southern Bell, General Motors, and Oral-B, Mark moved to Los Angeles in 1986 where he worked as an office temp by day while churning out sample feature screenplays and television scripts by night. Two years later, a chance viewing of a new series called The Wonder Years changed his trajectory forever. Mark's spec script for that top-ten show led to a freelance episode and a staff writer gig where the highlight of his first day in the room was the announcement that his spec script, "Summer Song," was to be purchased and produced as the premiere of the 1989-90 season. After racking up eighteen writing credits on The Wonder Years, a Humanitas nomination for his Thanksgiving episode, "The Ties That Bind," and his first producer title, Mark went on to write, produce, and sometimes serve as show-runner on such diverse series as Northern Exposure, Picket Fences, Moon Over Miami, Law & Order (which still sometimes gets him excused from jury duty), Party of Five, Push (to this day a sensitive subject), Time of Your Life, Pasadena, First Years, That Was Then, One Tree Hill, Windfall, and What About Brian. After helping to successfully launch the second season of ABC's Brothers & Sisters in 2007, Mark was a co-executive producer on CBS's Ghost Whisperer, then an executive producer on the first two (and arguably best) seasons of ABC's Revenge, followed by a stint as executive producer on NBC's Heartbeat. In 2018-19, Mark wrote the first season finale of Netflix's Dolly Parton's Heartstrings, "Two Doors Down," an LGBTQ-themed episode starring Academy Award-winners Melissa Leo and Ray McKinnon and directed by Wendy Stanzler.As a writer-producer on the first season on David E. Kelley's Picket Fences, Mark shared an Emmy Award for Outstanding Dramatic Series.For his "Falsies" episode of Party of Five, Mark was nominated for a Writers Guild of America Award for Best Achievement in Dramatic Writing.And for his writing and producing services on that same series, Mark shared a Golden Globe Award for Best Drama. Opening Credits – Dark Shadows Theme – by Robert Cobert Music Cues by Robert Cobert from Dark Shadows Catalogue Closing Credits – Sorry For Writing All the Songs About You – by Clara Mae.  Taken from the EP Sorry For Writing All The Songs About You.  Copyright 2018 Big Beat Records All Rights Reserved. All Songs Available on Amazon Hosted on Acast.

Season 5: Episode 226 - THE 80s: Shock Treatment (1981)/Streets of Fire (1985)
Shock Treatment (1981)The follow-up to Rocky Horror Picture show is a sequel to the cult classic but not a direct sequel.  Many Rocky Horror cast members returned for the film, but only Jeremy Newson reprised his role as Ralph Hapschatt. However, due to his title of "Judge", some fans have speculated that Gray is also reprising his role of the unnamed Criminologist. In addition to actors from Rocky Horror, other alums filled out the cast. Many of the original film's Transylvanians appeared as audience members, while Imogen Claire was given the slightly-larger part of the Wardrobe Mistress. Raynor Bourton, who originated the titular role of Rocky in the stage production, portrayed one of the singing soldiers in "Thank God I'm a Man", and Chris Malcolm, who originated the role of Brad Majors, was cast as Vance Parker, a local police officer. Founder and long-time president of Rocky Horror fan club, Sal Piro, also has a silent cameo appearance as the man using the payphone during the opening sequence.  The film would later be turned into a stage musical in 2017 in London, EnglandStreets of Fire (1984)A 1984 American neo-noir rock musical film directed by Walter Hill and co-written by Hill and Larry Gross. The film is described in its opening credits and posters as "A Rock & Roll Fable" and is a mix of various movie genres with elements of retro-1950s woven into then-current 1980s themes.  According to Hill, the film's origins came out of a desire to make what he thought was a perfect film when he was a teenager, and put in all of the things that he thought were "great then and which I still have great affection for: custom cars, kissing in the rain, neon, trains in the night, high-speed pursuit, rumbles, rock stars, motorcycles, jokes in tough situations, leather jackets and questions of honor"  It would inspire Capcom’s video game Final Fight.Opening Credits/Introduction (1.54); Oh My GOD!!!

Season 5: Episode 224 - KINGS OF HORROR: Green Thoughts (J Collier)/Little Shop of Horrors (1960 & 1986)
Book:Green ThoughtsBy John CollierFilm:Little Shop Of Horrors (1960)Little Shop of Horrors  (1986) This short story written by John Collier was the basis of the Roger Corman cult classic Little Shop of Horrors which would later become a Broadway musical and a hit film of the same name.  John Collier is an award winning writer who has written short stories, novels and some of the great screenplays of our time to include The African Queen and  I Am A Camera.  Many of his short stories would be used for episodes of the Twilight Zone, Outer Limits and Alfred Hitchcock Presents and turned into hit Hollywood film.   1960 Original film was directed by Roger Corman who was dared to shoot a film over two days.  Quickly putting a script together with an idea based on John Collier’s short story which he read and loved and adding elements from his other two favourite authors Arthur C Clark and HG Wells.  Corman took inspiration from the orchid bulb which grows quite large but when splits and buds has a tongue like pistil which would enable the plant to speak.  Later they gave it a Venus fly trap look but leaves of the orchid and inner colourings of the orchid. Directed by Frank Oz and based on the hit off Broadway musical of the same name.  Little Shop of Horrors was filmed on the Albert R. Broccoli 007 Stage at the Pinewood Studios in England, where a "downtown" set, complete with overhead train track, was constructed. Produced on a budget of $25 million, in contrast to the original 1960 film, which, according to Corman, only cost $30,000, it was well received by critics and audiences alike, eventually developing a cult following. The film's original 23-minute finale, based on the musical's ending, was rewritten and reshot after test audiences did not react positively to it.] For years only available as black-and-white workprint footage, the original ending was fully restored in 2012 by Warner Home Video.Opening Credits; Introduction (2.44); Forming the Plot (9.35); Introducing a Film:  Little Shop of Horrors (1960) (24.12); Film Trailer (27.11);  Lights, Camera, Action (28.37); Introducing a Film: Little Shop of Horrors (1986) (44.15); Film Trailer (50.04) Lights Camera, Action (52.08); End Credits (1:21.36); Closing Credits (1:27.36)Opening Credits - It’s Christmas Eve – taken from the album A Christmas Horror Story by Alex Kashkin– Classical Jingle by Dan HughesMusic Interludes and Closing Credits – Prologue: Little Shop of Horrors, Da Doo, Skid Row (Downtown), Don’t Feed the Plants – from Little Shop of Horrors Original Broadway Production.

Season 5: Episode 220 - THE 80‘s: The Changeling (1980)/The Fog (1980)
The Changeling  (1980) The Canadian supernatural horror film from 1980; its plot follows an esteemed New York City composer who relocates to Seattle, where he moves into a mansion he comes to believe is haunted. The screenplay is based upon events that writer Russell Hunter claimed he experienced while he was living in the Henry Treat Rogers mansion in the Cheesman Park neighborhood of Denver, Colorado, in the late 1960s.  The film also features Melyvn Douglas also in our book to screen episode Ghost Story.  The film won eight inaugural Genie Awards, including Best Motion Picture, and was nominated for two Saturn Awards. It is considered one of the best horror films of all time, and one of the most influential Canadian films of all time. The Fog (1980) The John Carpenter’s supernatural horror film would put mother and daughter scream queens in a film together in the form of Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis.   It tells the story of a strange, glowing fog that sweeps over a small coastal town in California, bringing with it the vengeful ghosts of mariners who were killed in a shipwreck there 100 years before.  A novelization of the movie, written by Dennis Etchison, was published by Bantam Books in January 1980. The novel clarifies the implication in the film that the six who must die were not random but in fact descendants of the six original conspirators.  The film has a guest star appearance by John Houseman who also features in our book to screen film this month Ghost Story. We are joined by author Jim Wosochlo (Unexhumed, Appalachian Schaumboch’s Tavern).  You can follow him via Twitter:  https://twitter.com/wosochlo We are also joined by author Matthew Brockmeyer (Nest of Salt, Under Rotting Sky).  You can follow him via Twitter:  https://twitter.com/humboldtlycan  Opening Credits/Introduction (1.51); Oh My GOD!!!

Book:Ghost StoryBy Peter Straub​Film:Ghost Story (1981) The book was released on 01 January 1979 and would be the watershed moment of Peter Straub career and become a bestselling smash.  His earlier work had great critical acclaim but this would be the book that made him a household name.  The story would involve five elderly gentleman in which  the book explores their five narratives into a chilling story.  This is considered one of the greatest horror novels of the 20th Century .  Some of the characters and location would pop up in other books by Straub such as the novels Koko and Floating Dragon. This 1981 film would bring together some of the greatest actors from the golden age which would include Fred Astair, Melvyn Douglas, Douglas Fairbanks Jr and John Houseman and would make Alice Krige an actress to look out for.   It follows a group of elderly businessmen in New England who gather to recount their involvement in a woman's death decades prior when one of them suspects her ghost has been haunting him. The film differs from the book as it removes a fifth characters story within the framework of the film.  the filming process was emotionally turbulent for star Fred Astaire, who confided in Irvin that he felt he was going to die or be murdered while shooting the film, and at one point considered dropping out of the production. Opening Credits; Introduction (1.38); Plot Synopsis (7.30); Forming the Plot (8.21); Book Thoughts (16.21); Rating Ghost Story (45.09); Introducing a Film (48.04); Ghost Story Film Trailer (49.23);  Film Synopsis (51.41); Lights, Camera, Action (57.17); Epilogue (1:29.57); End Credits (1:36.30); Closing Credits (1:37.21) Opening Credits– Epidermol SoundsClosing Credits – Haunted by The Pogues taken from the original soundtrack album Sid and Nancy.  Copyright 1986 Epic Records Original Music copyrighted 2020 the Literary License Podcast.  All rights reserved. All songs available on Amazon.  Hosted on Acast.
