"lon chaney" Discussed on Aaron Mahnke's Cabinet of Curiosities
"Our world is full of the unexplainable, and if history is an open book, all of these amazing tales are right there on display. Just waiting for us to explore. Welcome. To the cabinet of curiosities. Some actors, despite their best efforts, become known for playing a particular role. Sean Connery, for example, acted in almost a hundred films throughout the years, but most people remember him best as agent OO 7 from the James Bond franchise. Boris Karloff appeared in 80 films before he was ever cast in his starring role as the lumbering monster in 1930 ones Frankenstein. But today, when people hear the name karloff, they can't help but imagine his massive figure dressed all in black with a pair of bolts protruding from his neck. But one actor is so well known for one particular part. It followed him to his grave. Bella blasco was born in 1882 in Hungary, dropping out of school when he was just 12 years old. He took up acting one year later and got his start performing in local productions while trying to make a name for himself. In 1911, blasco moved to Budapest and performed with the National Theater of Hungary, although being in a bigger company didn't bring him fame and fortune. So at the outbreak of World War I, he enlisted with the austro-hungarian army and fought for two years. When he returned home due to injuries he sustained, he resumed his acting career that he had left behind. After that, blasco bounce from Hungary to Vienna and then to Berlin for a short time until finally working his way to America. He earned rave reviews for his portrayal of a villainous character in a 1927 stage play, staying in the role when the production moved out to the West Coast. The following year, he started getting cast in American silent films. As it turned out, Universal Studios was looking to cast the role that he originated on Broadway for a film version of the play. Their first choice, Lon Chaney, who had already terrified audiences as the phantom of the opera, had sadly died before production could begin, but although lascaux had to find the character on the New York stage, producers were cautious about a relatively unknown actor headlining their next major motion picture. And yet they hired him for the project. Both the play and the film told the story of a transylvanian vampire who's moved to England, caused quite a stir. Based on the 1897 book by Bram Stoker, Dracula became a huge hit and catapulted blasco to great acclaim. But if you're wondering why you've never heard of blasco, there's a good reason why. At this point, he no longer went by that last name. You see, early on in his career, he had chosen a stage name to honor his place of birth in Hungary, the town of lugos. So from 1903 onward, audiences had come to know him as Bella lugosi. While he had lived in relative obscurity back in Hungary, lugosi soon found a lucrative niche for himself as the leading man in horror and suspense movies. He went on to star in films like murders in the room morgue, son of Frankenstein, and the black cat. Sadly, as quickly as his star ascended, it came crashing back down. For one, lugosi grew tired of being typecast as a villain. In fact, universal had offered him the title role in their upcoming Frankenstein picture after Dracula's box office success, but he refused, saying that the part should be played by some half with extra instead. The role of course went to Boris Karloff, who would go on to costar with lugosi in 5 films later in life. Due to his accent and ethnicity, he found it difficult to break out of the horror genre. He acted in numerous B movies over the next two decades. Each one more questionable in quality than the last. By the time he died in 1956, lugosi had appeared in over 100 films in roles ranging from mad doctors to evil scientists, and even a heroic magician, but he was a shadow of his former self, relying on favors from directors and fellow actors to cast him whenever he needed the work. But even after all of that, his fans remembered him best as Count Dracula, looming over his prey in his white waistcoats and black cape. Bela Lugosi, terrified audiences for years as the legendary character, practically defining how the modern vampire appeared on stage and screen for the next century. In fact, his costume was so iconic, he was buried in it upon his death. His coffin can be found at holy cross cemetery in Culver City, California..

It's a nice. It's a nice universal monster film. It really is so yeah. Yeah i i. I love all these moves. I've been watching it for years. And i can't get enough of it was funny because i was watching Watching joe rogan had a rob. Zombie was on podcast. And they're talking about you know the classic horror films and stuff. Because i didn't know that. Joe rogan was a big monster horror fan. Oh i didn't know either talking about that. Never talk about lon chaney and You know when he did know hunchback immortal notre dame and you know i have that too. Yeah it's just you know. Those were the silent era with nas fraught too. And oh yeah. You know. Mashraq calgary and oma just if the progression of horror films Through the through the years and And now it just seems like horror films are just made. Because they're just trying to do or trying to make money was before when horror films are i started. They're actually trying to find stories. That were you know really incredible stories but there were horrific. You know yeah you know when frankenstein came out. That was a huge movie dracula. I mean that's a hugh. It was a huge thing. It was an event. You know absolutely so. Oh yeah yeah. No i just i. I love these every time you recommend. I'm like yes. Because i get to dive into my birthday gift and watch. I haven't seen a ton of these. I've seen a lot of them. So it's podcast universal studios monsters. I mean good amazing. Amazing stuff You know there are cheesy ones in there but a majority of just really something else and yeah can't get grants land. It's kind of like the hammer films. Too yeah When no-one hammer did a lot of the dracula dracula movies yeah. Those are credible. They're really really violent and gory But in sexy and You know chris really. I think 'cause i like i really as as dracula i think. He's just amazing Okay bela lugosi of course is the staple he set the bar right and There's something about you know when he says children though the nights With music they make no one else can say that line like he does. I just i know gives me chills. Tennessee i never fan. That's just what it is man. This is the pinnacle he wants dracula and he says yes. I'm interested in the property. Carfax abbey. I just love this. He's great he's just an unmanageable brute. I don't want to want to do with frankenstein. Did in creede unmanageable brute. On like how did he get through. That line is being hungarian as art to get through that. Even you know an american. That's been speaking english. Life can go through that no not at all. you must be double jointed. I always go back to edward but anyway oh they were talking about edward to all my god. Great movie yeah. I know we've done that one. But so i guess on that note that's all you gotta get more. It's all i saw. That's it that's it loved it. How do we little goofy but other than that. Yeah great great. She has a little goofy but she was hot so worked and it was just. Yeah it was. It was fine. It didn't bother. I mean it was just like it was a little out of place but it did take me out of the film so i was fine with it. It's all good. Didn't take the film now. I was good. I was good in the in the fastest vampire on film in this movie. Your yeah i'd never seen anybody run so fast and all my life. I was laughing. My ass guy can move man. Yeah.

"In the morning out. Sorry about the hour and it's just like okay In the morning. I do. But i thought i talk to you about this thing. This problem i have and let's go to your your laboratory in your basement. Yeah let me lead the way and he likes to handle. It goes in front of the doctor. It's done you wouldn't if that happened today. He gets shot you. Would you just stuff just this. I love this period pieces. And that's part of the charm of these films. Just a different time and know again what i wanted to say is that i just. It's just it's a different take on a monster movie. It's like they wanna be cured. And sodas the wolfman and then it's like wow you know and then i liked the twist with him switching the transfusion so that the blood would win into the doctor and then he became all this wilder vampire and i love that. That was a nice little twist. I loved that that was great. You know i like that. You keep struggling with going back and forth and shit. Yeah yeah. I like that. Because he's like climbs over the wall it's back in the in the house and then he's like hair opens up the door. The police grumblers. Some guy came in. Yeah tell him but okay. No i know i know. We're chasing eilly respected doctor. God forbid you we. Would you know accuse you of being that but but it needed to be cured yet. We then we have the nice twist in dr becoming this twisted vampire. And then there's still you know he goes out and kills so there's still that horror you know within the film but it's just it's a different take on i four in the in the in the woman being the hunchback too hot to be you know that was. Just that was a waste erased. They should've just caught that whole thing. They have had her still in the movie. I think she was great back. Nothing it didn't add to the movie. It didn't really fit into the movie. It didn't make a lot of like it wasn't like house of frankenstein where the hunchback was like that was the main focus right bright. It was. He needs to get this done because he's trying to impress this girl and he and then of course the doctor gets obsessed with frankenstein monster connected. They connected the two as well because in the end they go down into the sand. And then you see the skeleton and frankenstein monster and your leg. yeah that's when they doctor neiman and right and that was good no and it's nothing. It's nothing to do with her being you know. It was fact that she was a woman that had nothing to do. I just it just didn't fit the story in my opinion just didn't in the trailer making her out to be like a monster and it's like no necessary. It just wasn't enough in the film. You didn't need that it didn't it. Didn't take me out of the film. But i just didn't see the point. That's all right so it was more goofy to me. I don't know. Just what i really like is that you got to watch the moon rise and fall because just like everybody else sitting there in their moons going down behind him and they keep looking back. You know go okay. I guess it's it's safe now to go after the wolf going into the cavern. And he's still you know the wolfman when he finds them but They're like. I guess it's safe now. And oh yeah yeah. Yeah it's just like you said. And that's why. I've always liked the universal studios monster movies. There's charm and something about the black and white the different time and hair don't know even the corny stuff in the movie. It is by in other main reason. Yeah that's not a problem. I can deal with it Because you have frankenstein and dracula the wolfman in in the same movie. So it's like okay. Cool i like that you know. Are we running out of. I know you like a lot of them. But we running out of your favourite universal monster films to talk about. We've done dracula running. No we've got a lot more. We got love more. Okay okay. so we've got son of frankenstein man. That movies great okay. We haven't touched on the mummy series or the mummy. The mummies great on me even the visible man like that. That's a good one two and you don't like creature though or do you like creature. Oh you do okay. Okay so we have like the sequels the sequels and all that shit you know not good. Yeah okay. then he got like ghost of frankenstein and all that stuff. We're not good. Lon chaney plays frankenstein. Which actually. I liked that movie. It's not bad. That's not bad at all and like it. And then he plays when he got when he got away from the wolfman he started playing the other monsters. You played frankenstein. Then he played dracula. You played son of dracula. Yeah how did he do i. I didn't see that. So i don't know i have no idea okay. Well i thought he was an okay. Frankenstein anything's better than bela lugosi plane. Franken was just. Oh my gosh. I love frankenstein. Meets the wolf man. That's another one. We have to watch but bella playing frankenstein. Oh my god. and which. Which movie is that. Frankenstein versus the wolfman. Oh it is okay. Yeah oh my god. He's terrible but the movies and i love. I mean he's great you know there's the there's the black cat with a boris karloff and bela lugosi in the same movie point. Really weird horror film white zombie white zombie. Oh good lord really good movie so there's a lot there's there's still plenty big over. Yeah but i. I mean i really i think house a frankenstein's a bitter movie. I like it better than house. Of house of dracula but house dracula. I remember when i first saw. I didn't think it was going to like this movie as much as i did. And it was because of how different it was it like you have to hand it to universal when they made these movies that they were trying to do different things they weren't trying to do rehash it know like a lot of these horror franchise try to do is kind of rash. They're always trying to come up with something new and different. And i i did like the idea of the monsters going. Hey i wanna be the monsters anymore. Can you hear me right and So i mean. I didn't believe technique that he came up with with the flowers. Any i guess you don't need no that is just what it is. It is what it is but It was just interesting because it kinda turned tables on everything all the characters. You know a mad scientist's being you know a vampire and You got a woman being of hunchback and it was different. It was actually saving the day at the end of the movie. I know he gets cured. And he saves the day he bites frankenstein in in And destroys.

"You are not but maybe one day you'll get drunk. Oh you do like Riddick I did. Well I like them because of the spectacle of them and I loved Pitch Black. Not necessarily walk is the one I'm black is is really good. I think that I think that four three film is also pretty good and underrated. Remember the one with the criminals on the planet kind of yeah. That was pretty cool. I think he's just called Riddick that one. The second one was bloated and Overdone. It was trying to stall you. Sound like a real movie. Reviewer is below. Didn't overdone or are you just talking about your wife. I don't know but info so Maybe recommendations I am going with. You'll be like why they Jane Silent Bob Strikes Back. Why did I know what's his face? Played desperately no well. Yes you could say that. But I was actually thinking of Carrie Fisher who also is in the US. Missiles Mark Hamill yes because Kevin Smith Kakinada is a big star wars fan any monies to get both of them in that movie. A my other one is a kingsman. That's a good one and that one has somebody in it from this movie and I was like really. They're in it and it was it wasn't it was a Miss Daisy Ridley in kingsman similar. Remember maybe she was. They were both based on styles. Kingsman is really cool. Movie right this is going to be a new one. Coming up kingsman. What why your recommendations minar as we've been doing for the last couple of months here in twenty twenty. I'm going back in cinema one hundred years in fifty years one hundred years ago a movie that I forgot to look up called nomads of the north. I don't know what it's about. It's got Lon Chaney in it so if anyone else's lawn Cheney is you'll know that WHO Cheney's so no matter the nor from nineteen twenty so if you go to seek out the nineteen twenty movies. They're probably going to be silent movies and most definitely going to be black and white but they're very fun and it's fascinating the way we think in modern times by the time you're living in you think we current people have invented all of the terrible themes you know murder and incest and rape and like world domination and illegitimate children. None no no. It's not all that stuff too. It's goes way back before that even but see I. I'm not saying that's all in this movie. But then from nineteen seventy as movie called. What do you say to a naked lady? Put some clothes on. This is more of a documentary towns. Like I also have not seen this one. But it's the guy from God now I've forgotten his name but it's basically make it. It's like punked jackass. They've got a Hidden Camera. Showing the public's reaction to nakedness in public. But it's nineteen seventy so interesting. I guess I reckon there's probably a law. Pb Karen this movie you're saying in the seventies people didn't shave their who won't based on the air. Yes yes so. If there's an I recommendations what podcast. Oh the PODCASTS. Can you get the talks about styles? Pubic Probably Joe Rogan Kevin Smith. Oh God Kevin Smith. Probably Kevin Smith absolutely and probably. Gd alright so many things this week. We the reason we watched hours. And I've been holding back on is above new projector on professional city. Some professional about any new projector is very good. The super bright is it's too loud so you're just gonNA have to suck it up and accept that in. Stop making excuses for it. It's too loud during the quiet scenes. But that's something I'm going to have to learn to live with other than that looks. Gorgeous is a Dr Projector so you said when I first put it in a sets it up that you didn't think it looked any different from the other one that was you don't other vent. You know what the one thing that made me go. Wow in this movie as far as like crispy clear was the close up of Chewbacca. And I'm like wow. I don't think in any of the movies I've ever been. It's been this detail. See the color of his I. It looks like he's a real this tobacco wookey. It's right up in his face and I felt like well for the first time I've got high definition of wookey this project. So he's my favorite by the way he is. This project is like very sharp for clear. Scott really vivid colour and the thing where it makes highlights. I'm very bright is very bright. Isn't it compared to the? Let's not too bright where it's like in your is. It just looks really good. I I'm really impressed. Diy this week to get that because our old projector when by project to you might not know this. They have something called throw distance away. You put the projector in your room. You know back over you had for the bike is so say you pull a project to twelve feet away from the screen. One projector might produce a hundred inch image of that distance whereas a different projector might produce a hundred ten inch image at the same distance. And that was the issue I had I put the new projects are up and you saw it was overshooting. The screen completely right. It was too big so I actually take the project amount down and move it forward in the room. Which isn't it was pretty easy but we have like a drop ceiling and the air conditioning. Vent down right in front of a lot of like getting up in the ceiling and and the screen is built an attached to must not permanently attached. I suppose but it is as big as you can get a built a hundred and four diagonal inch screen. It's actually takes up the entire portion of the wall there would be no making it bigger no so anyway. I spent almost a whole day. Open the ceiling screen things in all lined up and now what is it like perfect. Here's really good. I'm good on GOT AN PAJAMAS. I need to reinforce yourself come in. So that's the new projects as Falk am HD are. Stop the thing that you should be looking for if you buy projector and you can see four k desks very crisp and clear. Now the other thing is ams sit talk that was lowest Brightness it can be on that we watched that movie on. Yep which is crazy. Because I feel like it's fifty percent brighter than the last one. What what you might not be hearing. I'm I'm the wife so I know what he's saying is I'm going to have to suck it up and deal with the noise because if you can't get any darker it's not GonNa get any quieter It's why understand the subtext of these things. What it is like now that what I'm saying if you've got like a you can control the light in your room which we can. It's black-tie without room. Basically isn't yeah you can just turn on the lowest bowl and watch it. It's still very bright but you could also wash this project to that. We've got in a bright room because we did. I had the lights on and added on high and you could still see perfectly so prices are looking at TV. They've come a long way though since and I didn't but the last project to that we bought something. It was twelve years ago when about projects. And we've watched it for twelve years and it still is fine. I just need urge to upgrade it and I feel like it was a good upgrade. So that's the projector. I've also been playing one game this week. It's on a game pass if you xbox game pass it's on the PC. It's called gears wall tactics and it's the first gears of war game. That's not our first person shooter. It's one of those Overhead the games that you don't like sit talk. Yeah you you've got your troops and it's turn based on you you know it's like if you've ever played the game. Ex-con is the very similar game. But I actually prefer it because it's so slightly simplified X. Gets very complicated is more simplified. And he gave while universe and there's a full campaign with a story voice acting and cut scenes but the actual things you're like controlling you fall troops and you send them into battle on its term base. You take your turn. The enemy takes this. I've always liked that kind of game play. I know you don't think it's fun. And it's a new volley game and it's on game so if you have game bus or you don't have game pass. You can get game bus for a dollar for Monterey Times say Game Pass Game Post Game Post Game. Post game puzzles like a free trial. Not Free Trial. Sorry it's nine thousand nine cents for for a month if you've never used it before so I didn't know you could go and pay.

How could I have time this podcast any better and reviewing the rise of Skywalker and this? This comes out on Monday. This is a conspiracy theory. I should make up as to why I was going doing the website and filling in the podcast in the day when I was like may the Fourth Olmedo Its star Wars Day. So we're on our podcast on styles day about Star Wars. It couldn't have come off more perfect so finally. What is your advice? And then we'll get out of my advice isn't really advice is question so people like people characters like Thanos or Darth vader or the emperor palpitation or people in real life like dictators or like someone like Kim Il whatever people like that or someone wants to take over everybody or rule everybody all the way down to like the really Super Bitchy micromanager in an office so for like five people who wants like control lavery body. What is your goal? What are you GonNa do when the whole fucking world falls in line exactly as you want and no? I'm not supporting this. I'm just saying you've decided this is how everyone should be. And now this is how everyone is through. Whatever your means are now what right right. So what's the import? What does he want? What does anybody who wants to take over Entire place in change in twisted metal. Now I understand about getting rid of destructive things weeding them out of -ociety or cultural replace or House or an office. I understand about wanting to get people's ideas more tuned into productivity and being like a more positive kind of force in the in your life or any life to make more good than bad happen things like that but how that is achieved is very very very different for every person so if you're the person who decided to all all the bad stuff like I'm their a person's I'm going to say this to themselves but I'm racist. I am homophobic. I don't like people from other countries. I don't like people with Brown hair. I don't like fat people. I don't like short people so everybody to be like this and I believe in God and I believe in this political thing and I believe in this economic and now I'm in charge and I'm going to snap my fingers and make it happen or kill a bunch of people or intimidate a bunch of people or threaten a bunch of people or brainwash bunch of people into lining up. The Way I want in my question does person will be and then what? What do you want like seriously? What is the people that we've seen James Bond? We've seen all kinds of fictional things where somebody else take over the world right. And then what do you turn into Bill Gates? Who controversy.

"I i think kind of mirrors in in some ways yeah that one i agree with i love american met where wolf in london and it was definitely the humor or to the fact that landis blends a lot of humor into it of course american werewolf us much more serious film bun eh there's that there's that idea there of how the the the where creature being representative of the character's inner struggle and sort of inner demons if you will <hes> and yeah definitely del all sort of werewolf narratives. It's like like i love the wolfman to the both versions dead honest with you. I actually like joe johnston as a director and i i was in for the two thousand ten version but the universal i mean sorry the forties one in particular shum is of course another big influence also because it's a bit goofy. I wanted to that one. Maybe even more so than than american werewolf able for or the joe johnston wolfman. The original forties one with lon chaney junior because there's it has that sort of serious serious. We're taking this stuff serious and it's just so lon chaney sucks and it's so funny to like see him. I'm trying to lake emotes and like really act this stuff and he just can and it's it's. It's wonderful i also i think that casting claude rains as his dad is one of the most baffling miscast in the history of film lake launch launch eighty junior stands like two feet taller and they have different accents. I just got a lot of questions and and i wanted to on a more metal level. I wanted people to sort of go through some of that process with blossom pastor. I wanted them them to see the awkwardness and have questions about it. Play on that was part of the fun. Somme is that you turn to your buddies and you're sort of blake. Did they know ninjas are chinese. I want people to do that. That's part of what makes the movie so fun in my opinion yeah absolutely as i was watching it. You know i definitely there's a kind of a level of discovery as you're going through it to where you're starting to to kind of get on board. You know you're like like oh. This isn't what i thought it was gonna be at all. This is insane and i will say the people i'm very happy that the narrative surrounding blossom pastor so far and had the consensus seems to be oh shit. It's really good and like i'm very proud of that. The fact that it sort of is a surprise to people. I i think that is just half the fun of it and i am not a a lot of filmmakers as i know are sort of like really stentorian about like no you gotta see it in a theater or something like that. Look very venue centric. I i'm. I'm actually one of those myself alas. I had to watch it at home so well and i will say this. I will say this. I just don't i don't care as much <hes> i at the end of the day. I'm here to see a story so yeah. I wanna see it in the best way possible but if the only way available to me is on my television. I'm gonna watch it on on my t._v. I'm not gonna wait five years to see in sixty five millimeter or something sure but i will say for veloce pastor. The only venue specific thing thing that i think is important is to watch it with people like and yeah i in a theater. That's probably the best place you can do that but even if you're at home. Get your girlfriend get your wife. Get get your buddies. It's like that is the best way to see the film because then you'll be interacting with it in the way or i.

"I g every time we've gotten her attention. She just has seemed so deeply disinterested in in the fact that you wanted a movie so you know i've done my due diligence and if she wants if she wants to participate she is more than welcome to that is fantastic. It kind of makes your mind start to wonder about how many like weird crazy movies. She has funded. It might be money. Laundering uh-huh hit that point of being like all right mom whatever but yep yep that is how we got to fund it and so we for two weeks a post took like two or three months and we premier in two thousand seventeen in portland so two thousand seventeen. I'm trying to remember and this is the next thing i wanted to ask you is. I'm trying to remember when you know the title and everything like kind of viral and everything. How like was it done at that. Point was it already already like in distribution was getting its distribution deal on everything no not yet released the poster and we released the trailer in this ops and stuff back in two thousand seventeen and you know it buzzed a little got talked about but certainly not to the extent it would be <hes> <hes> but the thing that you know studio coordinators talk as sorry festival coordinators talk and <hes> <hes> so i think i ended up submitting to like four or five festivals and we ended up playing at like thirty because they kept sharing amongst each other and i kept getting these e mails from from festival coordinators being hey. We heard about your movie. We'd love to see a screener and you know you just keep sending it out and they kept responding positively so after a while we were approached by by a distribution company we were approached by several and so we finally went with wild eye because they seemed like the most above the board dudes and it seems very much in their lane and and they just seemed like a great fit and they were they have been so what ended up happening was i think we signed with them late 2018 because it takes a while for it to sort of proliferate <hes> and we signed with them late twenty eighteen they released their revamped damped poster in a revamped trailer on april twentieth the day before easter which and i think i was just i would love to shake the hand if whoever came up with releasing show loss of pastor easter weekend on four twenty so it just that was when it exploded. Um no no yeah and that is probably when you heard about it. It was like i think so now that you mention it yeah yeah it was it was and it was so strange because doc part of what's been so surreal about this is like you know we finished. We've wrapped in two thousand sixteen so it's like to me. I'm like i. I love this movie but to me. I'm like yeah. I made that like three years ago right. It's just kind of surreal. I'm so happy it's finding an audience now but it's it's. It's just funny. It's life is a mysterious journey. Let me tell you oh yeah absolutely well. Why don't we get into some of these. <hes> movies these puzzle pieces. We call them here. The movies that we thought may have inspired you you already did bring up black dynamite. I was going to bring that one up also also grind house both as a film and just as genre in general these are definitely. It sounds like things that were major influences for you absolutely especially black dynamite that yeah that movie was like what i i think it's overselling it a little now but i i would say to people during filming that movie is our bible and it's the only movie i made all of them watch because i was like this is what they're doing for. Blaxploitation asian is what i wanna do for that kind of z grade horror and exploitation film and i just think you know black. Dynamite is just a brilliant movie. I think it is so funny and one of the rare comedies that succeeds almost every minute of screen time. I love head so that was a huge huge influence grind house. Yes more esoteric because i would say they actually that grind house was a bigger influence on the original trailer <hes> that that was more around the time of grind house yeah it was definitely definitely part of the spark to do it like the idea that you could make a short film that is shaped like a trailer and a fake trailer and that's it's like sort of a viable means for a narrative that is of course directly ripped from grind house. I was also watching just a lot of trailers from hell all this website <hes> back then and so i was just having all these grind house titles tossed may so when when i saw veloce pastor or like when that came to my brain it just everything sort of clicked where i was like. Oh that sounds like one of these movies shum just that whole that whole genre for sure just exploitation cinema is of course a huge influence on both versions but is that is that autocorrect correct story true very true. Yes absolutely true and it's like that. That is where that's why when my phone auto corrected velociraptor due to velocity pastor like i said i had just seen grind house i'm huge tarantino guy android rigas and so that was on my brain trailers from hell was on my brain so when i looked at my phone and i saw veloce pastor i was just like batum movie and so yeah i think i think definitely on the final film there's bits of grind house in there for sure i mean i think that you just fold those influences winces into yourself after a while so you're for sure in there but i will. I will say that during filming. I wasn't thinking about grind house much. I was thinking much more about you. Know things is like monty python an airplane black dynamite sure absolutely <hes> well. I'm going to go to another one which was orgasmic in the films of trey parker worker especially with this narrative like i was saying on the main episode. <hes> of just you know the this guy was just like this religious guy who oh you know everyone's kind of telling him that he should be using these powers even though they're so ungodly and everything and he's always got that one foot still stuck back in religion and that seems to be something that's exc gone through a bunch of trey parker stuff actually yeah yeah it has and you know what's funny is. I have never seen orgasm. Oh i've had a couple couple of people bring it up now and i. I love south park i for years i was like a pretty <hes> <hes> devout viewer of it and i will say definitely his his writing for sure him and matt stone john. I think that they have a really genuinely good ability when they want to to donate very clever commentary terry on things yeah just some episodes of south park. I think are just some the most brilliant comedy writing. I've ever seen the trapped in the closet ause. It is just amazing screenplay and like you know i definitely took a lot of that in but shockingly have never besides the south park movie. I have never seen one of their feature films. I've never seen basketball and i've never seen team america. They've been on my end orgasmic. Ah the men on my list for years just haven't gotten to them yet. I would've loved to because i'm sure that they are brilliant. Also the book of mormon music. Oh god incredible. I'm sure i would love it and it's one of those things where i'm just like yeah. I don't have an excuse. I just haven't seen it yet. I know that feeling but it is funny because definitely things like like that are definitely influences just in not that one in specific. I would say sure a lot of a lot of orgasmic adjacent stuff. That's absolutely well yeah and then of chorus we spun off of that into the trauma films which you know that that kind of brings an another level of kind of at the same time as being adjacent to trey parker darker. It's adjacent to the you know the so bad. It's good b movie horror type things you know yeah absolutely and i definitely it's funny. There are very a few trauma films. I really adore but i admire their. Ethos like like i. I really have respect act for that sort of scrappy d._i._y. Make your own damn movie kind of mentality. That was why i also gravitated towards rodriguez. Severi went when i was first starting out being interested in film because that's sort of demystification of what it what it's like to make a movie and and what you need to make a movie i found very appealing and and so both both kaufman and end you know rodriguez have that in them and they're not always good always swing and i admire that <hes> so a lot with a little exactly and i also admire from trauma the unapologetic nature of how low budget it is laying with that becomes part of the appeal and that definitely i took an influence where there's you know when you're operating with the budget that low you can give two options which is try and hide it or embrace it and so i always respected movies vs more that would embrace it and so i chose to do so as well that was part of the reason also the punk music in it sure i. I thought that maybe they would be had sort of a shared d._i._y. Ethos so also brings to mind kevin smith a little bit as well. Yes yes and that is he is another filmmaker that i'm like. He's not always great but nothing but respect for his work ethic lake he he does it. He he makes whatever the hell he wants to and doesn't really care and i have respect for that totally absolutely well another movie that we brought up with american werewolf both in london which i think again you know to go to just the the straight up the character progression and all that i i think kind of mirrors in in some ways yeah that one i agree with i love american met where wolf in london and it was definitely the humor or to the fact that landis blends a lot of humor into it of course american werewolf us much more serious film bun eh but there there's that there's that idea there of how the the the where creature being representative of the character's inner struggle and sort of inner demons if you will <hes> and yeah definitely del all sort of werewolf narratives. It's like like i love the wolfman to the both versions dead honest with you. I actually like joe johnston as a director and i i was in for the two thousand ten version but the universal i mean sorry the forties one in particular shum is of course another big influence also because it's a bit goofy.

"Father of understanding. Everything. Clyde lewis. You're listening to ground zero. You want some really dark conspiracy. Tune in tonight because we're going to get dark. They said earlier, my wife, and I saw captive state. Over the weekend. Alien movie, but it's a metaphor dark alien metaphor Canada. It wasn't a good movie at all. But certainly the metaphor didn't hit us about. Underground groups fighting for a cause that not many people know about fighting an alien threat of some kind finding alien not necessarily extraterrestrial in this. It was extraterrestrial. But I'd say he's an alien threat from within. Always about the conspiracy of the external threat white a magic night, a war light a match spark the war that was the running theme and the idea of the Phoenix rising. Again, something some old idea or old ideal is going to rise up, and we have to be on on the ready. We have to be prepared for what this may be. And so today as I was watching this this whole. Situation going on the Netherlands. I was thinking we're going to have a lot of copycat attacks here. Now this guy. From turkey. Okay. Turkish intelligence is investigating the attack. When we're just wondering if it was personally motivated or an act of terrorism. See what I'm seeing here. And you know, let's push push away a bit the situation we will come back to that. If we have to if we can somebody else can give me some interesting info on why Podesta was in New Zealand prior to the attacks. Every can tell me why people were complaining to the news eland police department. You're complaining why they couldn't on Facebook. And then this happens the killings happened in the mosque, okay? What I'm thinking? Here is what is happening is bloody pattern where matches been struck and the age-old war's been ignited Islamic terrorist. Groups have always been the focus of ir in the western world is we've seen the body count all over Europe Britain and even here in the United States. Many Americans Britons Jews and even secular Europeans have forgotten the crusades or they push that history from their minds ever since World War Two ended. Western society is arrogantly evolved to think of itself as well. We've always ourselves as above all this. Okay. This is a lesson to history we have image and action parameters as to what we don't want. Okay. And the image action parameters seek the guys in the boots in the jackboots the guys that are wearing the the the Nazi symbolism. What have you those are the Halloween costumes, I call them. But what of those that? Don't wear the Halloween costumes, the ones that are among everybody else. Okay. And we have ever since World War Two. We we've seen we said. Well, we're too sophisticated to fall. That would smell of despotism or anything that smells a fascism. We think we're so advanced that we will never repeat the mistakes of history. We will never repeat the mistakes of our fathers. Mankind has always had a history of violence. We reason because in the past men were an educated brutes. That's what we say back, then they were all on educated brutes, they're ignorant of how to prevent catastrophes. We're a lot smarter than that. Now. We're we're America. We're smarter now. Many of us. Unfortunately. Sincerely, believe that we have progressed beyond. Large-scale violence that we have progressed beyond the idea that we can fall into communism. Okay. We have progressed beyond the idea we their constitution. Our American flag were ourselves in at tight. We hug it a lot. It will not go away. That's nonsense. Okay. It's nonsense to think that if you wrap yourself in the constitution you wrap yourself in the flag. You're not gonna be manipulated into just saying to hell with it. All. We're seeing this now. Well, Jason our children. We're seeing children that are protesting things that they hear on TV. We've got twelve years to live. We're protesting. It's just a figure that was thrown out. We twelve years to live. We might as well protested say pay up pay up socialism, socialism central. Can you believe this? There's something greater out there some greater conspiracy that we're not we're not looking at here. So here we are thinking that we progress beyond anything else that we cannot. We will not fall. Fascist and we will not fall for dystopia. We will not fall for despotism. And many Christians many western Christians today do not realize that we have been programmed many of us in the belief of a messianic leadership has no tolerance for the act of being human or suffering from you and obstacles in sin. Many people be the first appointed fingers someone who commits a crime or San or what have you, but many of them do the same problem do the same things behind closed doors until they're caught. And they're the ones that are. Shamed. And we can say well, quite that's just a sign of the times. I would agree. I would agree. This is the sign of the times. These are these are signs of the times. Pre-spring being rolled in and told, you know, hey, you had your into media FM. Or your you abused a little girl until she threw up you spanked her and slapped around and told her to clean up after. So that is what we're hearing about. Now. That's what we're hearing about about these pedophilia precepts were hearing about in the deepest reaches the Vatican. This type of of of horrific monstrous activity going on. Oh, no. We don't fall for that we tolerate but see we have to have those imaging action parameters aware wolf is aware wolf unless it changes like Lon Chaney and a movie a vampire's vampire unless it can live forever. We'll get that all the time. Right. Oh, it's done a vampire CLYDE, vampires don't rise from the dead. But I know, but you know, there are a lot of blood suckers out there will drink the blood of the innocent. And they do it all the time. If there are no, we're wolves vampires, and no black satanic witchcraft operators have causal engineering. Why did the church come out with a huge book called the mouth small car? If they weren't after the vampires in the werewolf wolves of the day. But now after they got after the vampires of some of them have turned into vampires. Some of them have turned into we're wolves. And we don't realize is because we're too big and too too sophisticated that anyone would fall for this. And it's a sign of the times. It's it's terrifying. To think that we've been told our whole lives. There's no such thing as monsters are shaped Shifter's or changeling when in reality. There are. And it starts with attitude did start it starts on the spiritual level before every comes a material thing. Okay. We ever before it ever shows up with the material world, it's there in the heart. It's there in the soul. It's there in the core. Belief systems. We're so programmed to believe that we won't fall for it. But apostasy is real. Apostasy from the plan. The plan of organization is real. The positi to throw chaos to the wind is there for us to bring order back into it Paul in the bible said that this was the case. The following away part. Art bell used to call it the quickening when he did his show. Remember, he's called the quick hitting the loss of faith and the denial the spirit in troubling times. Things get so bad that people neglect their since of being they reject their spiritual nature and go for a more..

"Don't want a girl mummy. Well, I mean a guy. Mommy might be happy with it by the girl mummy. Kind. Yeah. Because I grew up with like Boris Karloff. Lon Chaney junior Christopher Lee. What was the first movie that genuinely scared you do you remember old genuinely scared me because I think I can answer very clearly for me. It was the creature from the black lagoon. In fact, the only really totem I have in the studio up creature from the black lagoon a model, but. From. That movie scared me because it was so really because here's something you, do you go swimming in a lake, and then there's this thing that comes up at that time, the special effects of the suit, the guy creepy. Impressive impressive. Yeah. And yeah. But whereas Frankenstein was not I didn't could relate to it as much, but do you remember some that actually genuinely frightened you as a little kid what, you know, something? I remember being scared by a movie that wasn't necessarily a horrible. It it. It was disturbing. Now you laugh at it. It was called cage. And it was wanted these really early films are some woman going to jail and the one part where they hold their downing shaver head. Wow. I I remember that scared me. Wow. That's unsettling. Yeah. The monsters I lied. I'm scared hearing about it. I was also frightened by movies where one of the parents would get killed off and stuff like that. And you feel you're going to be all alone. So every Disney movie. Yes. Yeah. Genuinely frightened. Yeah. And that now Kristie when you saw the exorcist you being of a Catholic heritage did that scare the. Yeah. And I didn't I saw late. I mean, I took me a long time even work my way up to going to see that move. Okay. Because there is stuff that really is gonna gesture the horror movie buff. Yes, Anything that scared. You recently other than that kind of scared readers jump all recently that really made you scared you deep into your soul. Behavioral like, for example, after seeing creature from the black lagoon, I would always wear socks. I would water ski this is a fascinating. You understand why? Because if the bottom grabs your foot it pulls away a sock instead of taking you down. Ripping your flesh. Right. I could call. My brothers sister right now. Basically if you're in shark infested water, you should swim at saw. Yes. Or in monster infested? Did any of these movies change your behavior is a little boys? Little Gilbert Godfrey. I don't know that they changed it because I mean, I I was just in love with the old monster movies see like being scared. Yeah. Yeah. And you know after a while you see the monsters has your friends. Sort of outcasts that are misunderstood. Oh that that's an interesting point. In other words, as a kid these become your friends instead of the people that maybe you want to have friends that don't even like, you is that what you're saying. Yeah. 'cause Frankenstein it's basically like a little kid. He's alone. He wants to make always liked Frankenstein. Because you Don Johnson would later emulate this Miami, vice Frankenstein, always wore a nice sport coat with no tie. Kind of a t shirt. Today's monsters. They have no classes they wear flip. Flops wife beaters wasn't there. A few address up wasn't there feud between Bela Lugosi, and Boris Karloff. Because Lugosi said that all Boris Karloff. Did was grunt and he relied on the prosthetics and the day they offered Frankenstein to Lagosians. Oh, okay. And he passed on it, and then Karloff. Did it became a big hit? But if but Karloff gets passed for life just for the Grinch. Oh, that's true. Voiceover pass for life. You give certain actors, you gotta give them that. I on my podcast, I interviewed Sara Karloff Boris his daughter. Oh, and she said, you know, she does she doesn't like horror movies, and he, you know, he didn't care about Mussa, these movies Karloff. But when he did Grinch that stole Christmas. He was so proud of a he said you have to watch this. Oh, it's it's great. Really is good and the and the singing now, that's a different guy. What's that name the that Disney actor thorough? Yeah.

"lon chaney" Discussed on The Projection Booth Podcast
"Course, Lubitsch Lubich talk later in the talk last week in the interview with just brighter is one of the few Jews who didn't come over during that emigration that we saw after Hitler certain to come to power. He knows what the score is. Is who's being targeted specifically in the terminal Jew? So yeah, there were so many people in here that had an interest in making this succeed and doing wonderfully. So you were talking about the idea of putting on the play and how so much of this stuff is acting. How Jack Benny was acting this Jack many calendar, you know, the acting in this movie in the way that we play the scenes out multiple times. And the way that Jack Benny moves from character to character is fantastic. The way that he is the professor at one point. And then he any well, I sees the Nazi officer basically being that same character that he was in Gestapo the play that doesn't get produced then it becomes the professor, and he just the way that he moves from what? And when when when Erhard the real Erhard laughs at one of the jokes and the way that Benny who's now as. As the professors like I knew react that way and just like. Face like, my acting instincts were correct. And I really appreciate that that the dialogue just comes back time. And again because of these ways that were doing that. And even the first time when they play that on stage, basically or the first time that they have him as Erhard, and the professor is the professor that it is happening in the theater but someplace else not the actual real office. But it looks exactly the same as the real office. Nice. How it's kind of like, yeah. We were that good at this. Make you think that this is a real nuts the office and the theater also later becoming blues for Hitler himself as yeah. Yeah. I supply on that. Boy. Oh boy. Did I get a real inglorious bastards feel at the end? Yeah. For sure the other movie. It reminds me of if you guys ever seen the last metro no I want to it's about. I remember. Yeah. With depend you. And I forget who Catherine and it's a theater company, and they're hiding the principal who is Jewish. They're hiding him like in the basement or in a he's hidden to hiding him. And it's it's kind of like a a melancholy to beer nuts v. It's pardon. I was gonna say designed for living is jill's, Jim. Oh, yeah. You know, your rights. So I'm not surprised that. I think friends went on the record saying there's no such thing as throw a shot. Shot means something nothing is there just for decorative purposes. He was definitely a fan site. We your time with last metro oh just that. It's a, you know, as a theater company, they're hiding the principal the Joseph Tura character in, you know, the hiding him away because he is Jewish to save his life and not surprisingly, the Gerard Depardieu character and the Catherine Deneuve character get together and he's younger than her. Is it just reminds me of a like I said like a ca melancholy to be or not to be house was I watching to be or not to be the first time and realizing that it's Robert stack as her. Right. He's was he born like the guy had a really long career. He must have been. I mean, I could look this up. Obviously must have been like in his twenties. I can't imagine. What you're still Robert? Yes. Oh, yes. Oh, yes, different. Yeah. Wavier or something. So I didn't really make that connection immediately. A couple of watches to be like, oh my God, that's Robert stack. Like he Roberts sickly not like Robert sack senior. Alan HALE or Lon Chaney, but Robert sec, and he's got his own little comedic to like, he's the scene from the bell. Yeah. Right. Wonderful. Yeah.
