Okay, it's not really Kermit the Frog. That's just the way I characterize my own voice when I hear it played back. That's right, you too now have the chance to cringe at the annoying sound of my recorded voice. Thanks to a generous offer from the fine fellows at the If We Made It Podcast, I recently got the opportunity to not only appear on my first podcast, I also got to choose this week's film.
I missed my chance to join the If We Made It crew for their discussion of my favorite movie ever, The Lost Boys (I was invited, I just don't check my e-mail often enough), my consolation prize was my very own episode. I went with Lucio Fulci's House By the Cemetery because it intrigues me to no end. It starts out unintentionally hilarious, with all the hallmarks of a classic late 70s/early 80s giallo (the bad dubbing, the disconnected plot, etc.), it picks up midway with some great gore, and by the end, it always has me by the throat. As big a mess as the movie is, it absolutely works on me at the gut/nightmare/childhood fear level.
Anyway, I discuss it at great length with Jeff and Tucker. Please give it a listen:
YES! I want to hear some hot Kermit on Fulci Action!
