"Towers will it was once seen in the likes of you know the the the heyday of your cary grant in your Jayne Mansfield in your you know. Your. Golden era of Hollywood stars. It wasn't as unattainable because the stars have brought themselves closer to you insofar as not as close as through virus but through equally vicious a viral aspects of social media and obviously getting their PR teams on board to reach out through a TIKTOK or snapchat or whatever medium at their disposal to become the one in have their own. On holy communion with the with the fans. So to the extent that fans have become their own celebrity I don't think the people have as much. They don't carry as much weight especially when there's the entire notion of celebrity has proliferated to include the likes of the you know a youtube stars in people who Celebrity Fox when another their famous enough to outdraw actual professional boxers. So it's pretty. I don't know. The Genesis from this for this movie was. When Random Cronenberg came down with a virus himself and he was. He was curious about the intimacy of getting something. From someone else the new without really knowing into it's. Something that maybe we would come to think about as Cova Dr runs the ravages, North America and beyond, and you don't think you've your situation. You don't personalize your situation to the extent that maybe you should because we're all in this together and yet there is something distant about a wiping your hand upon the surface that someone else's has touched. But if you knew from whence, you're the virus originated maybe you would have a little more kinship with your fellow man if they could say trace it back certain local business that you've been patronizing so. He found himself in that situation in then it was A. Re. reimagined win he later saw late night talk show featuring Sarah Michelle gellar speaking of Empires. Were Vampire. TV. Shows she was. Talking about how she was going to get the entire audience sick at I think she was on Kimmel or Letterman or some such thing. So and hence Wallah the antiviral movie in the concede about the spreading selection celebrity of origin viruses and pathogens now. As in video drome, there is a reality TV. Component to this film and. Its Brits to the forefront when Sid, marches character is abducted one of the. His I guess he's equivalent at the voluntary. Sir Lab and the Saudi. There's a call out as as well to the you know. The collect the famous call out in video drome of the new flesh. So in order to State Hannah geist. Fans. Her death and data deterioration would be broadcast reality TV. So eventually I guess news does break in I. Guess I spoiled my own. My own plots in office here. Yet, in the in the film Hannah Geist, meet your maker or does she she's kind of kept in a state of suspended animation and living on through a weird digital interface. Now much like chronic works, the seniors, the early work this one is heavily infused with. Science fiction almost at the expense of horror and you could you could say whether one falls into one category, the other or you can't sale at say. and. The extent this one succeeds I think it really is dependent on the creepy atmosphere that's the created and really tapping into the bodily aspects of horror as as in the David. Cronenberg film it came from within. The inward aspect of horror rather than the outward Lindell the. Me Against Them, shutting my door and slamming it on the face of some masked killer. So he's bringing the conceit from within Nance taking the within aspects of the internal body and making it to me know without. The another side business of against the Lucas Clinic is rendering muscle tissue as meet, and there's a again there is a local Delhi and the Delhi sources meat from the clinic and It is steak taken from the muscle tissue, of Hannitized, in other competing celebrity interests. So it's another wonderful idea that maybe could have been. Explored I mean you're taking really what is of a meat market, which is the people's desire to look like well, this celebrity at any cost through the Frankenstein in. Plastic Surgery. displaying it as literal meat market where meat is grown from the cells of celebrities for for consumption. So consuming celebrities again taken to its extreme, getting close to celebrities take into his extreme. Now, guess, that's the point in the podcast where should get to what I learned. Well, I guess it's almost actively. uncommercial to the extent that the CRONENBURG's movies were end. David Cronenberg retake studio notes, other ignore them or try to the best of his ability to incorporate some of them but one can't imagine. Major studios and their reaction to. The I mean the elevator pitch of say a crash or a dead ringer it's just so. It's the is so antithetical to anything with any commercial appeal as close as he would have gone would have been the dead zone but even then I mean. Stephen King adaptations are very hit. Miss the in terms of the public box office but that was the most commercial. He would've ever gotten an even in his later work in. Dangerous. Method. The. Viennese psychoanalysts than their period piece set in. In Austria in Fantasy Act later, the nineteen tens or whenever it was the Freud was. Plying his trade on on Very anxious housewives the it just you could put anyone in that film you can put the rocket could put you. You could put Johnny Depp in their his commercial poison really and Kudos to David Cronenberg, for not giving to shits about that and just just forging ahead having his creative divisions. So infrequently compromise by studio not so good for him. It seems like Brandon is on the path and for film and a budget of three million in I. Think it was a commercial flop but I mean when you have the connections in in backing that Brandon has gray able to at least Enter a few doors that would be closed on other people. So one of the things I've learned now. that. It's been fairly I think. Given the plaudits in by critics respect anyway look at Kim Newman Empire called. It's smart subversive but rather cold. I. Think. That's a wholly accurate now. I'm keen enough.

"Impulses. This one carries that concede to the next level where the closeness is brought into biological proximity through colds and other viruses. So you can actually go and. Hiccup and were guests contract you one more would more accurately say that say a herpes simplex or a some kind of infection of some sort or some you know biological. Vector from a celebrity and. I guess the the protagonist is a sid marshes in employees the low Lucas. Clinic. Is the US has the very sickly and hail visage mean of one Caleb Landry Jones who was a terrific actor who would've thought would've made an incredible axl rose if anyone decides to green light a guns and roses bio pic. Anyway that's I casting a suggestion if anyone wants to take it and run with it. But now sit march is rather unscrupulous character. Who is? Sneaking out and using his own body is a kind of an incubator from this bespoke clinic and taking the the pathogens. Selling on the black market. So it's a really interesting idea and to the extent it works or doesn't is what I think has been Some of the the thrust behind some of the criticism behind this film now. I was thinking. similarly, you could throw David Cronenberg's crash in the mix of a concede that W-, this viewer was founded hard to get behind the dangling participle here but. That one. For those who haven't seen it. James Spader is falls in with a group of of the enthusiasts who. Like. To marry the I, guess because Fetish. Of automobiles carrying that to the nth degree by combining lovemaking with the dangers inherent of the high speed automobile. Racing really a great an interesting idea because obviously the pairing of the automobile and Illicit sex is one that goes back to when the teen demographic really came into being post war. He had obviously, you're make out points and the vehicles could substitute as surrogate motels for assessing really couldn't afford such things and make a point served as A. Way To get away from the prying eyes of the perennials and so the meeting like a causal, the direct. Link between the eroticism of the automobile and. And young was really A. On this case, sleigh older, I guess it would be but. Really, he kronenbourg worked at all the case no pun intended of of that kind of conceit in boy was at an interesting one and I think the third or fourth. Film I'd seen in the OVA after the a couple of years later into well into my teens and again, something that fell eminently flat with me for it's. Very very like a star can steer kind of off putting end. Sober kit that's been frequently applied to Kronenbourg films, which is clinical I mean literate literally clinical here with Brandon Cronenberg's work as the Lucas Clinic divide is your brought to life. Through cinema in not the most original way as wide has been used throughout cinema but very engaging, very very by chromatic color Palette and this clinic really comes to life in stand you have the the. The foreground and background coming into an standing in short con contrary indication when you have celebrity. Faces in the clinic that everyone wants to be one of whom is Hannah Geist geist is a German for ghost. And she's kind of aid. figure onto which. I guess different. I guess you know. How would you put on? Issues, she's the blank slate into which different. Demands and can be placed. Her Fan base says she's got a large. Large. Fan Base is a young actress in there is much speculation much like in current celebrity culture but who has had what done to them In terms of plastic surgery that say again, going back to the older Kronenbourg key Lloyd can seat from like. What is it? The film rabbit and the the grotesque lab in that one but. There's speculation about her vulva that's been. It's been it is the definite article or whether that's been specially fashioned in created for her now stinking as you is this your through Netflix's, there's a number of rather gross. Has. Surgery. Shows that have come to the forefront as Netflix is developing more what you could broadly be lumped into the documentary category if they weren't such reality TV driven drek but. A Beverly Hills plastic surgeon I believe is one of them in has these grotesque characters who talk shop about their. But rather sort of business in the interview I Guess Prospective Clients Sends you get get to. I guess go through the various The psychology behind and workout their. Work out there I mean what would you say pathologies if you WANNA call it that work out there the psychology of why they're getting what they're doing and in exchange for I think discount on some of these procedures whether it's jobs or a rhino plastics or what have you. They get. Exposed ends exploited through the wonders of Netflix in being no to I guess eighty different countries that the service operates in. So the Lucas Clinic taps into that vernacular and when March is using his. Own. Body to make extra money a bit there there's it's kind of got A. Bit of world's oldest profession of vibe to it but a other critics than I wouldn't be the first to remark upon this would have touched on the vampiric elements of this. They're all very warn white pasty characters who look like they have iron deficiencies and they're. You, know frequently injecting one another with the with various serums in that. So the it's a fair comparison to make. Now. Hannah geist has also fallen ill with another kind of disease hand. There's all these machinations about how. She could've gotten that and how she. Her how she comes to her end is a plot point that the film. Dives into as a rival company called. VOL- INTESA starts to Trying to encroach on the territory occupied by the Lucas Clinic and Cashing in on US liberty of bodily of. Bodily fluids and pathogen so again Very Interesting idea that the Brandon chronic explorers in one that thinks some you UK critic said wasn't overlay original because of the subject matter once again. I guess exploring what it means to. To. To buy into celebrity culture and due to a certain extent. I. Think some of those criticisms are warranted because again with the conceit of getting to get close to your favorite celebrity injecting. Injecting virus into your skin cells it's As celebrity culture involved. If you WANNA use that term but I would say people are becoming their their own celebrity and I think it's not as it's not as ivory.

to a three one two nine eight one seven towards the phone number body horror movies the first one I mentioned here in the in the article that I have in front of me again it's a sci fi dot com article that's linked up on our Facebook page so like it now and follow us now on Facebook at Facebook dot com slash Nick the show is Kevin Smith's tusk which I do not like Kevin Smith's bizarre horror flick tusk is billed as a black comedy as well but there's nothing funny about being kidnapped by a bizarre retired seaman and forced to become a gross of a growth a gruesome walrus after a young podcast post meets one Howard how who's offering a room for free he soon finds out that house intendencia less than admirable what ensues is a terrifying tale man is being forced to become a walrus on the inside and out mutated beyond recognition and so on inside a walrus custom made of human skin well it may not have been the best guy but he certainly didn't deserve that now you're a fan of task I I think tusk is really great yeah I think it is flawed I do not give the plea flaw I think Gilo point who Johnny Depp plays this weird French Canadian detective is a misstep at the very least however I am drawn in every time by the late great Michael parks who is Welling full bananas Michael parks Michael parks was great okay and I and I and I love Michael parks but if you want to see Michael parks given extraordinary performance in a Kevin Smith movie then you need to see red state I I would absolutely recommend red state before task we're red state is a great movie red say is really out of out of no where for cap a great movie and not it's not that doesn't fit to the category we're talking about though that's not a body now but Michael parks is unbelievable in that movie it is it is a an extraordinary performance and I really it's that I really like red state a lot I I was surprised at how much I liked it by the way some celebrity birthdays for today you know we've been talking about

can't by the a mortally beautiful Carrie Anne moss I don't know what she does but she looks saying saying I love her now as she did twenty years ago Dodge this how about this one they include the son of David Cronenberg antiviral is is in the article it says leave it to the son of the king of what body horror to come up with this dystopian tale of said March an employee at of the Lucas clinic an organization collects pathogens in viruses from celebrities and people of interest to our six of the public can then purchase the ability to be injected with their said germs for some reason fans of find a way that this you can feel closer to your favorite celebrities as sick as it sounds things get even sicker when a celebrity meat market of said it's it's injections of a seemingly terminally ill patient begins prepare for some serious body in medical **** as the feature wears on proving the Cronenberg apple doesn't fall far from the tree it was directed by Brandon his son yeah it's pretty great yeah I liked antivirus yeah so it was pretty great all right body horror here's Dorothy on WGN I don't think hi I listen to you guys every single day I enjoy your so like thank you I mean years old and you always keep me going she I'm talking about the invasion of the body snatchers is without their two or three times as remakes and the originals and fiber rich when that I remember the other character jabber Sutherland that's the that's that's that's that's the remake the the original is Kevin McCarthy the original is right yeah black and white Kevin McCarthy don Siegel directed at the second one is Philip Kaufman with Donald Sutherland Brooke Adams Jeff Goldblum Leonard Nimoy right that see that's one of the few movies where I like every version it's been made it's it's it's been made four times the movie's been made four times and this doesn't happen very often I like every version of that movie are you using I picked a good choice because there was a back to the room when we did what every made it all that much yeah well people try to remake movies all the time in the sometimes they turn out terrible but for me all four versions of the body snatchers story is is pretty great all it was it was also the one with Kevin McCarthy running down the road yeah the body after body they are perhaps is classic classic art thank you right thank you for a lovely evening right Dorothy everybody yet the invasion the body snatchers yes so the first one obviously with with Kevin McCarthy is an absolute classic during the whole red scare time period in the American in American history and it's a it's a great one directed by the great don Siegel the remake some people consider a even better than the original I think it's just as good full Kaufman directed that one and that of course features Donald Sutherland and that's fantastic I I remember the first time I saw that movie I was thirteen I thought the theater and it completely freaked me out and I was a fan already of the original invasion the body snatchers and I didn't know what to expect from this remake but it's it's it's it's amazing actually it's it's really great and really creepy and focuses on like new age sort of religion and the effects are fantastic and they really got away with a lot in that movie to get a P. G. because that movie was rated PGA the nineteen seventy eight remake of invasion of the body snatchers was was shockingly rated PJ but when you watch now you go home did they get away with getting a P. G. rating for this movie and then the third one was directed by Abel Ferrara and it was simply called body snatchers and that one took a military slant on the story took place on a military military base Terry Kinney Gabriel Anwar and very very scary Jennifer Tilly is in that movie and I love that movie I love it and that's just so you've got invasion the body snatchers than you have of the remake invasion of the body snatchers then you have body snatchers that one was from nineteen ninety three came out in October of nineteen ninety three and again it wasn't able for our film and really intense and really really really great and took a different sort of political slant on the story and then the fourth one was simply called invasion and that was with Daniel Craig and the coal Kidman and I'm blanking on the director of that movie and that was a movie that had some behind the scenes issues the production was troubled I think it was re cut by the studio so I think the director was upset with what it will what became of the movie but they who was it so it was credited to Oliver Hirsch beagle but with additional scenes written by the witch house keys and partially directed by James make tea right to did stuff like if I remember it like the from yeah yeah which is a movie I enjoy very strict yeah but I liked invasion and I know was troubled I liked it I thought it was really good and really creepy and so I like all four versions of of that story in any in any body snatcher movie invasion of the body snatchers the second one body snatchers and invasion I'm all for it well it's funny because you've got nineteen ninety three's body snatchers present sevens the invasion rise next I'm just gonna be called of yeah that's an action which is going to be of but the the every scene able for our version from ninety three some years ago I think it was a it was on cable one of those I was just like oh this is pretty cool but I I am really partial and a you know obviously all big props to don Siegel's version yeah it's great it's very of its time and and and timeless at the at the same moment but I am all about Phil Kaufman's well it's great it's got that the shot of a Donald Sutherland pointing his finger in here I'll just again that's that haunts my dreams yeah I know it's terrifying and it's the but it's basically the final shot of the movie yeah of course it's poor Veronica Cartwright who the next year is going to be an alien and be in the same room with the chestburster and scream exactly how she does at the end of invasion of the body snatchers she cannot catch a break can't choose the birds do got attacked by birds as a little girl she's got one of those faces that just needs to be attacked by some sort of evil force the next one that they mention here we mention already is the the human centipede I can't but I don't even knowledge those movies you're just there just repulsive for no other reason than to be repulsive but when they came out they were the talk of my middle school and high school home yeah everybody was I don't see the human centipede crazy man Mike sends in attacks the three one two nine eight one seven two hundred out and you can do the same thing to call or text three one two nine one seven two under for body or I says from beyond yes absolutely absolutely another another Stuart Gordon body horror movie right up there was re animator I'm the end of Marengo says Hey would you consider goodnight mommy about a horror movie I know it takes the cake for being uncomfortable to watch at times I do not think that's a body horror movie good body horror is usually some sort of transformation or some sort of gross thing that happens I need you some terrible things in that movie yeah that movie man and and evidently the directors the two directors have a follow up call them yes she said not to shed the cabin the hot some and Eric sought at the Sundance and send it or not I don't know which one he saw it what's the what the film first we saw that but he said like it's the law judge at the lodge and it's supposed to be as insane if not more intense uncomfortable then goodnight mommy so I'm like oh oh good really good got a double down that movie's intense man and a final shot I found the for the final shot of goodnight mommy to be horrifying and like a lake at first it was just like what's going on here but the longer they held that shot the longer it went on the more terrifying it became like I remember that it it seared into my into my brain.
