"My hat goes off to sophia cal. April wolf because i think they're extraordinarily talented the important message that they were trying to deliver which is important in principle gets lost in translation and people. Just don't see it. They just see sort of this and it was cut down as far as i know to. They cut a lot of the the the the horror out to try to get the pg thirteen rating. As far as i know and you can kind of. Tell that with some of the editing. I think if they had just called the movie Sleigh girls which was the subtitle. I think it would have done better. Because i don't think there would have been an expectation and i think people would have been like. Oh that's kind of funny. It's kind of like christmas order now. It's kind of funny but there wouldn't have been this real expectation for it. I think slagelse would have been a better title actually so not a big fan of it. I agree with the principle. I don't think there's anything wrong with it. And i think they. They did their best. But i just think it got lost in translation. I agree a hundred percent. Yes and that's a really great way to put it. And i couldn't articulate my thoughts but it was. How did you say as a political mess. Message with the movie. Attached or vice. Because the best things to like you when you look at the original black christmas i mean nineteen seventy four. We have to remember that there are some quote unquote political things in there. But it's subtext and it's it's not. It's not driving the narrative per se right. It's sort of this subplot. But because you know i i mean you have jess. Who's a woman. A young lady in nineteen seventy four. Who's pregnant whoa holy shit. He's the one that wants to have an abortion. What i mean. That's a sort of a role reversal there. It would be the man and get you know. Please please get into the and and it's not it's just wants get rid of the baby. Peter wants to keep it. So you know i mean now that would be like whatever but in one thousand nine hundred ninety four. That was that was huge. And but it didn't those types of things didn't feel it was just it was it wasn't had Yeah it was just subtext was there. It felt more organic. It was i mean the the two thousand nineteen black. Christmas opens with quote that just lays the foundation of what you can expect for the whole movie and sort of like. Well here we go. I don't think there's anything wrong. With with wanting to make stories that empower women and lift people up. And i think that's good but i think if if it's done it's got to be done in the right way because there are women out there too. That are like hang on a sec here. This is even too preachy for me. you know..

"What do you know anyone? I shouldn't watch man on wire right? That would be scared because He's so high up there, he could fall. Right? Well, it's not a scary is the walk is because, you know, he didn't take the camera with him on the wall and the man on the wire, But Zemeckis fakes that so well, that is just like Aah! I'm afraid watching the biplane movie that they show at Hearst Castle. So afraid of heights. This is this is a brand new dimension to you that I did not foresee.

"One of them. And stood up and put his hand on one of the people's heads and and one of our lights started blinking which had never happened before and you did not see it in the show. It's like a bluish light that just started going on and off. Oh man as soon as exorcism was done it just reset to an on position and it never happened with that light on that shoot. So it was very weird J. I would have been down the street if I was on that. Yeah. I mean like I'll finish from back here guys wage. I'm good with strange. Yeah. It's it's really some of that stuff I go. You know what maybe it's coincidental. I don't know but I I maybe it's just from my Catholic upbringing and from having watch way too many horror movies, but they're just certain doors that when they open I'm just gonna be like now I'm good. Yeah. I don't need to look inside. I don't need to push my luck. I don't need to Thursday. That what you know, I guess that's why horror films are great because you can just watch other people opening those doors exactly really quickly off the last two episodes on on on the site shutter site are The Crow and the Twilight Zone. Really. I mean now we start getting into kind of real-world stuff and that's certainly the deaths what we talked we discussed in Poltergeist the deaths of Heather O'Rourke Dominick Dunne, obviously, very tragic not minimizing that at all for me personally when I see something like the the crow when I watched it and twice on the movie both times and I watch them with the heaviness that I felt watching these and I think the reason was is because as I'm watching these I'm seeing these as a real tragic events that occurred while you're making something that's supposed to be fake and you're going in sitting here. They do a stunt. Everybody's going to be fine. It's going to look fantastic or you know, we're going to do an action movie. Once and it's like somebody going to work one morning and then all of a sudden by the end day, they're no longer on this planet. And yeah, it's really it's so heavy and and wage you did such a great job presenting these let's start with the crow. You you have a comic book that's born from tragedy. And then the film itself has the tragic wage killing of Brandon Lee you talk about the sideshow that occurred after Brandon's passing and how all these kind of crazy conspiracy theories and gossip columns or are putting off all the stuff up. Can you talk a little bit about those parallels that people are trying to you know, make some sort of sense of a brand is death to Bruce's death. Yeah, I mean it's it's I mean the the easiest answer is just that it's fodder for Tabloid tabloids to sell newspapers. Like it just is the easy go to to make that connection and put it on the cover of whatever magazine to trying sell but beyond that. I mean, I I think it's just April wolf talks about this in the Poltergeist episode just this idea of trying to make sense of losing.

"And he's actually really looking for Terry Melcher in the movie so you could be right. He's obviously not there. They say he's not there. The dialogue in the movies pretty weak. There is a ton of criticism around this movie being very exploitation of of the murders Sharon. Tate's own sister has come out saying that Sharon has never had any visions of her in. JC bring. Who is one of her friends? That was murdered that night because in the movie that she was telling a reporter that she who is having visions of them having their throats cut the director of this movie. He basically defended the film by saying this movie gives gives the victims a chance to fight back against attackers which is something they weren't able to do in real life and that was his main purpose of this film but they also so do show like pretty violence murders okay and all of her friends movie which yes is exploitation of and the theat. That was what I was GONNA ask is. Do they show like actually show the murders happening and if they do graphically I'm out completely do is it's not I wouldn't say it's super graphic when they show it takes place in Sharon Tate's dream. Oh so they don't actually show like the attack happened for real. I mean well they show it for real But it's a dream so they're showing them being murdered weird but it's a dream. Sequences was things that I kinda WANNA watch this. I don't because I feel like it is really disrespectful. Respectful and gross but at the same time like curious. I'm like why would they make a move with Hilary Duff about Sharon tate. You know it is not a great movie. Although I'm kind of curious to see what your opinion of the movie would be on Amazon. Maybe I'll have a few beers and watch it. Yeah I honestly really curious to you. See what you would think of it and I mean is it anymore explanative of any of the other movies that have been made about famous serial killers and there's like like my friend Dahmer and there is movies about John Casey and there's movies about Ted Bundy haven't seen those movies. Though to be honest I mean you saw all the new Ted Bundy movie ephron yeah that wasn't they didn't show anything Allen ously they didn't show any of them actually the murders and I was that one it was okay ending the ending. Caught me on that one. Technically that was two thousand. Nineteen I guess we can talk about that like yeah but no I that movie. I was like weirded weirded out by it because what are they really going with us until the end egg and then I was in I was in but I get your point like but I haven't seen those other uh-huh I guess my main point is I mean yes. The dialogues week. It's not a great movie but two point nine two seems very very low in people. They're fucking pissed about this movie. I don't really see how this movie is any worse than any other like horror slasher movie. I mean so many news movies you could say are exploitation against women in general right `tatoes against any group of people you know depending on where move. You're watching portion of the movies that I watched on this list. That were that main theme. Actually yeah because this is I mean it is a true story I can. I can see a her family being upset and they have every right to be upset that this is being brought into the spotlight but as the director is saying because they do take revenge on the killers okay and you will see that in the movie. Okay and I don't know I would say I would recommend washing it just for the fact act that it is such a controversial movie you know does watch it and make up your own opinion on it. Okay so really quick We've actually mentioned this on previous various episodes But we just since we're doing our year end roundup we have to mention the dead. Don't I the Zombie movie by Jim. Jarmusch it was in our We talked about this actually actually specifically in our October Halloween movie roundup episodes. So we're not going to deep dive. If you like Jim Jarmusch. This is his version of his Ambi- movie. It's it's paced as his foams normally are it's very very much. His social commentary on how we are all zombies because of consumerism and and social media which I again found a little way too heavy handed. But I didn't expect that coming from him but so be it definitely was enjoyable. If you're expecting movie like Zombie land or Shawna the dead. You'll be disappointed if you're a German fan. I think you'll dig it all right so next. Here's another Creature movie it's forty seven meters down on cage. Nazi the two thousand seventeen forty seven meters down movie. But it's it's one of those movies where you do not need to watch to watch the second one. Basically you. Fourteen girls living in Mexico decided to explore a submerged Richmond's city off the off the ocean against their better judgement. These soon discovered they're not alone in the water when they see a giant shark. The entrance is to their cave becomes a blocked. Their air supply is steadily dwindling and line. Cave sharks are stalking them for their. Next meal's the girls must navigate the underwater labyrinth of CLAUSTROPHOBIA. Inducing tunnels and caves in search of another way out or become lunch So I thought the movie was fun. It did definitely make me feel a bit claustrophobic. I like the mango was pretty bad ass and you ought to handle herself in this situation. Her Dad is played by John Corbett sex and the city go team aiden. Her Dad is. He's kind of like an underwater archeologist and goes. It was on cave diving expeditions. All the time and used to take her with them of course so obviously so that's how her character becomes pretty knowledgeable about like scuba scuba diving and sharks and is able to help like save her friends. I guess. Well I don't know she saves all of them's spoiler spoiler alert. I mean if you WanNa get very nitpicky were all talking to each other the whole time even though their ears are exposed and I'm not sure how they are able to to hear each other on your water plus the sharks were able to hear and they were making so much noise screaming the whole time. I don't know how they didn't get eaten within like the first few minutes of the movie but anyways always it wasn't anything that we haven't seen before but I actually enjoyed it while enough to ignore the major plot holes and ignore the science behind what what would make the whole movie completely implausible Because sometimes you have to do that with horror movies so yeah I kind of liked it a little little embarrassed to say are so. This is a movie We both saw And a movie that neither neither of US US had ever heard of until like maybe like two minutes before we put on an. It's called little monsters and it is not the nineteen eighty nine movie with Fred savage and Howie Mandel and it's definitely not only make of that movie either highly recommended yes it is the original one. Yes okay I saw the original well the other other one. It's not I never saw the other little monsters. Yeah definitely not a remake So this is an Australian movie and it stars. Here's what is becoming one of. Minnie's favourite actresses Lupita younger who plays kindergarten teacher named Miss Caroline. who takes her kindergarten in class on a field trip to a farm to see a famous children's television performer named Teddy me? GIGGLE and one of her students named Felix whose Ah yes an adorable little boy with an Australian accent and he has an uncle named Dave. WHO's a washout musician? And just kind of a deadbeat who you just broke up with his girlfriend. And Dave decides to chaperone the field trip with Miss Caroline because he basically just wants to get in her pants. So do what ends up happening is miss. Caroline and Dave must protect all the young kids from a sudden outbreak of zombies that attack the farm during their field. Ship does does the sound absolutely ridiculous. Well it is but it's also really fucking funny. It's gory it's violent. It's Raunchy and Yasser Asser a bunch of adorable kindergarteners running around with Australian accents and they all kind of think this whole thing is a game so it's kind of like That movie life life is beautiful. The movie about The Jewish Librarian and his young son who become victims of the Holocaust and he uses his humor and imagination to make it all all seem like a game to protect his son from the dangers of being in a death camp. So it's like that but with Zombie and not as serious and not a serious. I'm not as sad. Yeah but it's an absolutely creative in silly taken Zombie movie and I love that. LUPITA IAGO can win an Oscar Oscar for twelve years of slave but still make movies like this. She's already proved she can do whore extremely well in us. She's a total fucking bad ass in this movie we. There's a ton of negative reviews where people were just hating this movie saying that they shot it off after like the first ten or twenty minutes and like fuck you to those people i. I don't think they understood with this movie was trying to be and yes. There's like a bunch of cliches in this movie but when there's so many movies like pet cemetery and Black Christmas being remade I think this movie is just really refreshing and fun I would agree. We actually went to see the remake of black the Christmas which will comment on later but we after we saw it. We Sharon wanted to put on a movie gave us some options. Asked me what I wanted to watch. I told told her. Surprise me so she put this on and well what Sharon said basically This this movie rules. It's not really too scary if at all really but it has. It's full of heart. Laughs Limbs Flying Aussie tightening kids talking and yes lupita she is the ship bomb diggity in every way she is damn national treasure and I dare anyone to watch US movie without cracking a smile or full out laughing as an OSCE kindergartner. Innocently lately explains what do is to his fellow. kindergartner based on his uncle's crude earlier description. I dare you not smile L.. Honestly because it's impossible to Zombie thumbs way way up for this one. This movie was pure joy. I felt like I love it. The three of us sat. They're basically like laughing our asses off the entire time so good so good and like so. It was a creative take on Zombie movies that we haven't really seen anything like that before. Yeah Yeah I just. I can't say enough I yeah I like that. It gave like a very real situation of because I don't feel like you've seen some me movies where our kids are involved as much and it's like okay. Yeah there are going to take. This is a real life situation. If the apocalypse were ever to happen this vis would happen. And how are these people going to deal with it and it was very well done and yet lupita just kick fucking ass all over the place. I've already called her for my team. If or when there's Omni apocalypse happen that's all I'm saying well since you mentioned the remake of black. Let's do do it. Less is high about it because Oh my God. I don't think I've ever ever heard such backlash towards a fucking movie remake. You make so. Let's just start with what this even has in common with the original movie which is not that much. Yeah basically basically is that. There's a group of female students that are stocked by a stranger or possibly strangers their sorority sisters sorority sisters yeah stocked by a stranger during their Christmas break and one by one they go missing and are murdered. I think there might. I think the lead character's name is jess no no so anyways. There's a couple of call backs to the original movie in the beginning of this movie. There is a shot of a glass unicorn learn which is a callback? Probably the most famous death scene from the original black wanted fast death scenes ever made anyway. Sorry that's okay Also ah the cat in. This movie is named Claudette and the original. The cat was named Claude. I like that. They stuck to the gender identifying of the Cat yes backed it. How the CAT was? This movie is very very heavy handed. When it comes to a little bit a little bit comes to that stuff but Beasley? That's pretty much all these two movies have in common and then I really don't understand why this movie was called black. Christmas was supposed to be a remake. It should've just had a completely different title. And I I really well. You just wonder if if it was called something else if it would have had so much of a backlash so basically the overlying main theme in this movie is essentially based on the Hashtag me too movement. With the main protagonist Riley played by imaging boots Who is drugged and raped three years earlier? By a FRAT boy and that that same boy returned to campus for a pledge initiation and coincidentally Riley in her sorority sisters start receiving strange in threatening tax around that same time. which is I guess? The Modern Day version of obscene phone calls that the sorority sisters receive and the original Huby. Yeah I mean AH technology and the according to IMDB. The Director of this movie is Sophia to call. I'm not sure if I'm saying her last name right but she. She Co wrote the script with April Wolf They worked extensively to make this vision of black Christmas as feminists as he could and and they definitely succeeded..

"That means wildcard Wednesday. Any artists song anything three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is EMMY who was that who requested? It was Donny is called my Baker. And I was questioned for man one. Okay. There you go. So welcome back everybody and Nick Gilio here on seven twenty WGN, and we are talking about we were talking about horror movies this morning, having some fun talking about the ones that really freaked you out. The really really scary ones and the sick and twisted one is that you'll never unsee. We've talked about some of those in. There are a lot of them. And Matt stork was joining us a little bit earlier in he is one of the founders of the windy city horror Rama which is a really really terrific horror festival. That's taking place at the Davis theater this weekend from the twenty six th through the twenty eighth. They've got a great lineup of events and movies. Both features and shorts that are part of the great horror genre. So check out windy city, haram dot com. If you missed the segment our interview, but that got me thinking, hey, let's talk more horror movies because it's one of my favorite. Subjection? It's my favorite genre of movies. And now, we're jumping into acting in horror movies that topic because the academy a lot of the sort of legitimate critics and stuff like that ignore or just completely dismiss the fact that horror movies can be great. They can be art. They can contain great filmmaking and they contend contain really great award worthy performances and over the years. There have been so many great acting performances in horror movies that getting word that I thought we should talk about and three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number. They actually wrote an opinion piece April wolf wrote this. On the on the rotten tomatoes page, and she says in two thousand eighteen Jordan Peele, get out jolted the Oscar status quo by earning nominations for four wards including best actor for you, flew up. It's totally it's not totally uncommon for prestige to plug of horror performance from the dirt and see it as a radiant flower that it is Ruth. Gordon won an Oscar for her. Erie turn in Rosemary's, baby. And the has happened in the past that there have been, you know, some really great performances in horror movies that have gotten the nut. But it's really it doesn't happen. Very often. And so everybody's talking now about lupita Longos incredible performance in in us. Google. She plays two distinctly different but complementary versions of the same character. And she's getting a lot of praise for that. And by the end of the at the end of the year when we get the award season. I really hope that she's remembered for the performance because it's a truly great performance. And you know, Jordan Peele is now you wanna kademi award forget out. He won a screenplay Oscar for it. So he's, you know, got respect from the Academy Awards. Maybe since they're starting to see that, you know, of these movies can be great, or at least, you know, the Jordan Peele movies could be great. Maybe more acting performances. We'll get the the recognition that they deserve. So. I want to jump into some of my some of my favorite acting performances in horror movies, and there are a lot. Here's Jerry WGN. Hi, jerry. How are you Nick? All right. All right. I just wanted to get in there that my scary movie. Was it the lie not the baby? Yup. It's alive. The the great killer baby movie that Larry Cohen may back in the seventies. Yep. Yeah. They gave me nightmares for a while. And then I think my the worst editor an empire movie would be Chad my Jobe, Jon Bon Jovi. Okay. Yeah. I didn't like him. And they by player movie laid. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. All right. Thanks, jerry. I Jon Bon Jovi, and the unofficial sequel to John carpenter's vampires. I this is what I remember about that as. When. Triumph of triumph. The insult comic dog voiced and portrayed by the great. Robert smuggle did a whole segment where they were hanging out with Bon Jovi, and and triumph said I understand that you're in a new vampire movie, and Jon Bon Jovi goes. Yeah. That's right. He's like, okay. Finally, a movie that requires you to suck. So. So. Yeah. Here. Here's some great performances. I don't know if you guys have seen this movie, the Bava Duke. It's this incredible Australian movie directed by Jennifer, canton was the first movie as a director, and she is so good in this movie. The baba is about this. This children's book it's about a woman whose whose husband died in a car crash, and she's got a very disturbed young boy who's trying to sort through the grief and the loss, and they find this book on the shelf about this character named the Buback. And and the book is this mysterious really scary character that starts to manifest itself in the house. And it's a really good and really scary movie and essie Davis is the lead. She plays the mother in the movie, and it is an extraordinary performance, a truly truly extraordinary performance that is really powerful. And and she really puts herself through the paces. It's a great performance one of the best performances in the horror genre in. Years. Deserve more recognition than it. Got. And of course, you know, one of the one of the great performances from last year that was ignored which I think was the best performance by any human being a movie last year, and that's Toni Collette in hereditary. She should have not only been nominated. But she should have won the Academy Award last year. Hereditary not only a terrifying movie, but she is incredible in it. And we've gotten a few texts that mentioned her obviously, eight one five area code says. It's assume that nobody knowledge Toni Collette. And then we've got a three one area code that also mentions Toni Collette and hereditary. This is this is a big one. I think because like she dominated that movie. It was a performance of such power in it varied. She had to play every kind of emotion. And it was an exhausting performance. And she also added to how scary that movie was because hereditary is a really really scary movie. Like, I mean, like massively scary. And I think has and will continue to go on to be revered as one of the most effective in scariest horror movies ever made. One of the greatest film directory debuts of all time, but Toni Colette is extraordinarily great in hereditary and deserved all kinds of recognition, and she should have definitely gotten. Definitely got an Oscar nomination at least at the very least eight one five area code says, Kathy Bates and misery. She actually did win the Academy Award for that movie. And also a lot of people have mentioned it. I actually included it here on the ones that I picked. Four hundred four area code says whatever happened to baby Jane the nanny scared. The hell out of me when I was a kid Bette Davis. Played a great monster in both seven seven three hundred Margot Kidder and sisters. Yes, she's created moving and Catherine nerve and repulsion both great both great performances. You know? I mean, those are those are great performances. I mean, one of them was directed by Roman Polanski who who was an academy favorite would go on to win the Academy Award and all that stuff. Someone includes nNcholas cage, and Mandy, which is a really crazy movie. That was that was released last year. And it's one of those you know, because nNcholas cage has has these moments of complete insanity. You know, he'll make movies where he's just like completely off the wall. It's like wh-. What what is what is nNcholas cage? Doing how crazy how insane isn't it goes cage. And sometimes that's good. And sometimes it's bad. Sometimes it's just embarrassing and weird. You don't know what the hell nNcholas cage is doing the movies bad, and the performance is ridiculous. But that's not the case with Mandy. This is good. Crazy. Nicholas cage. Like, really, really good crazy, nNcholas cage. So all right. What do you guys think great acting performances in horror movies, and I got a bunch more here? And I want to hear from you guys at three one two nine eight one seven two hundred great performances in horror movies. That's what we're talking about.

"Police on this. Why and what's happening here? I assume they're talking about a basketball. Yes. Okay. Okay. So directed by Steven Soderbergh written by Terrell Elvin mcrainey who also wrote moonlight very famously. So the stories about this high-powered sports agent played by Andre Holland also was in moonlight. And he is the guy who loves the game. You know, it's not just the money. He loves the game. But he's trying to keep all of these big big clients on the roster of his agency while there's an NBA lockout. And so that means that the players union is not negotiating with the owners. So within that, you know, no one's getting paid. No, everyone's waiting who's gonna see who's going to budge in Andre Hollins character is a master negotiator. And so he as an actor is there's some kind of intelligence in his eyes that makes you believe that he is the master who can fix all of this. It's almost like this like hopefulness. And him. And it's something that you see in moonlight do in the ending of moonlight. You know, just kind of focusing on his face, and the just the idea that things are going to be okay. And so I absolutely loved this movie. The more that I think about it Z beats is also in she plays Andrei, Helen's assistant, and she is kind of appraising a little bit of the character that she has in Atlanta. She's the girlfriend she like, she's the smart one in the room who's not afraid to say what no one else will say. And there's also this underlying idea about what it means to be a black player playing for white owners. And you know, mccranie kind of weaves this in in a really artful way. And I quite liked it. You know, you have to pay attention. It's not a movie where you can just put it on and kind of do something else, which let's see how it fares net flicks. But I think that if you sit down and pay attention to it. It's really beautiful. Okay. That sounds good sounds subversive. It is.
