"west craven" Discussed on Eli Roth's History of Horror: Uncut
"What Anne rice did with vampirism, is that she celebrated it and allowed you to embrace it and allowed you to knowledge that it is okay to evolve into something that is greater than what you once were you just have to know who you are when you're going through that process. I look at fright night as a fantastic, vampire film from my youth. That took all of the John Russia's instincts, and then brought them to something almost spill Bergen with the, the boy next door. So fright night was really in my mind. So part of the Spielberg summer experience of the eighties, and I believe that came out in the. Summer of eighty five and felt like a summer movie and had all of the adventure because it had a lot of similarities with what Spielberg was doing looking at a family unit that was struggling mother and a son who are loaned by themselves and what happens with sexual evolution. What happens when you are becoming more of a sexual creature and young Pugh Bessant boys, being hives of hormones, and how is that different than what drives vampire and looking at the difference between an old monster and a young monster? A young sexual monster was interesting parallel sexually confidence. Older male basically stores. So it was Sweden, and stealing your girlfriend. Right. And how do you compete with that? So fright night was kind of a great classic vampire, film. And then we get into the twilight films, and then there's a little bit of true blood trying to pull back some of the domestic of the twilight films. Air, you know vampires nice and their families, and everybody wants to be good. And you don't have to fear them, which was a defending of, of the John in many ways an about something completely different than vampirism. But I'm excited to see what's going to happen with the new, vampire chronicles series, based on the end rice books, because so many, vampire stories have borrowed, so heavily from what Anne rice did those books that I'm excited to see how that series will reclaim those elements that have been so well trodden and also subvert them and elevate them in a way that recreates vampirism for a brand new generation demonic possession movies, which, of course, includes things like the exorcist, his assertions, whatever else what comes. What am I one of my favorite possession films was the Manitou is the Manitou, and it's, it's not a good film. But it was my first exposure to the John ri- because I hadn't seen the exorcist yet in the film, there was a woman who has a small bump on her back, which then grows to be an ancient demon. So she has a Hunchback erupts and, and chaos ensues, but what is fascinating about the possession genre of horror films is, so an extra ably linked to the body morpheus horror genre that Kronenbourg has cultivated because it is your body betraying you, it's you can't trust yourself. That's the most horrific aspect of a possession story is that you are not in control. Your loved one is not who use assumed they were and the possession genre, depending on how big that umbrella is does that encompass. The stepwise does that encompass invasion of the body snatchers. Anything that takes away your control of your humanity. Feels like it is a possession storyline. It is once again, in horror films if you can't. Even trust yourself. That's the most terrifying thing. And we saw that two wonderful affect in both of the evil dead films. You see the first evil dead, a much more sober horror oriented approach to the possession storyline. But in evil dead two that is so while league. Comedic and absurd that it takes all of the, the, the sobriety a possession storytelling that we witness in the first film, and throws it out the window for one of the funniest horror films ever made si si thirty days of night. Yes. Oh, yeah. Thirty days of night is another wonderful twist and vampire movies, as David Slade is quoted who directed at twilight, film, and record thirty days of night is that he's directed one vampire film and thirty days of night is vampire film, the twilight movies. I don't think are in my mind. I don't quantify them as vampire films. What I loved about thirty days of night. Not only David Slade fantastic direction and the way he builds a horror story, but the idea of this town that is going to be dark for thirty days and the vampires will rain during that time with such a great unexpected subversion of the rules of vampirism vampires, you know, unless you're Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, don't usually go out and daylight. And if you're trapped in town for thirty days of night. You chances are you're not going to survive, because the whole aspect of vampire story almost all of the films hinge on being safe by sunrise, and the vampire, not realizing that he had gotten too deep into his pursuit to, to know that the sun was rising, and that was their ultimate death. So thirty days of night, took the safety mechanism of vampire film, and threw it out the window and said, good luck, Stephen aisles. DC. So hang out a lot. I would love to see more adept patience. I wish that film had done better. So we could see the further adventures because that comic book series goes to really interesting places after that you're still working with. Yeah. I were Davis did Hannibal, and he did American gods. And I am sure we are going to be getting back into bed together because there's, there's an interesting. It's interesting working with David because we come at horror from two completely different directions. Both aesthetically driven and he's got a fantastic, but we are his little straight guy in a big gay man. And we come at storytelling from complementary angles. And when we worked together, I see things that I would have never thought of and images that I would have never have conjured and David is a fantastic lap Reiter. Keystone of the them are Joan let the right one in. Let the right one in has perhaps my favorite single shot and horror films. And you could probably guess what it is. It struck at vampirism and the pain of loneliness from a different angle, which was that of small bullied, boy, what was beautiful about that story is that a monster comes to the rescue when humanity fails this young man, and who could blame him for using the monster. When humanity was so horrible. The swimming pool is so masterful the. It gives me such joy that shot actually speak a little bit about the nightmare on elm street. Yeah. Yeah. Nightmare and elm street was an epiphany for me when I saw because I absolutely adored the melding of the fantasy genre with the horror genre so wonderfully woven together, the idea that you're not safe when you sleep is an old adage, that we, you know, audiences, I discovered in the fifties, when they're watching the original invasion of the body snatchers, and they get you a new sleep that idea of when you are the most vulnerable is when he gets you using your dreams and your wants and your wishes against you using your fears against you once again, it is that insidious infectious horror that gets inside you and you can't stop. It was such a mind bender and actually, my partner now is. So haunted by the elm street movies. I can't watch them when he's around him like I had to put away my FREDDY Krueger action figures that he's he's completely traumatized. But for me it was FREDDY Jason and Michael Myers. Those were the anti heroes of my childhood, and what I loved about, where west craven took the nightmare franchise is outside of reality. One of the things that was always frustrating to me, as a first consumer of entertainment was everybody, at least in my home painted within the lines. The best actors revered and the house that I grew up in Clint Eastwood at Charles Bronson. And so, anything that was even remotely outside of reality was framed, as bullshit, that it had to be within reality, or it was almost a cheat that you broke reality and made up something. So you didn't. Apply the rules of storytelling in contained way, and it was craven did with nightmare and illustrates that there are no rules. This guy gets inside your head, and he will make whatever extravagant images that I can come up with a hor- reality, and I love the indulgence of the elm street series. That was one of the things that was most fun. And it also is a series that had an interesting progression. You look at the original and tail eight relatively simple simply told story in the horror genre, but with a fantastic high-concept, then you get into episode to freddy's revenge why. The first one wasn't revenge. I don't know. It seems like that's just what he does. But the second one was all about homosexual panic and the strange way. And I remember watching it as a kid. You know, going through my own sexual waking and seeing a student go to a leather club and. A instructor trapping him to the faucets in the shower to whip him. And I knew that we had left west craven land and had gone someplace completely different, but I was intrigued, and I thought the cast was actually quite good. But boy, was it a strange story, primarily about sexual weakening. So took the elements of the first film and turned it into hormonal horror, and the third film brought everything back with dream warriors, which is one of my favorites of the series and gave it an adventure and authentic. And west craven didn't directive, but he wrote it and brought those characters back Brock Heather LAN cap and Patricia Arquette, who is wonderful in the film Craig Wazzan. There's a great cast and dream warriors and it gives you the wonderful fantasy life of variety of loss kids who were fighting a monster that their parents created. So dream warriors, I think was the height of the series. Dream master was a really effective film. Renny Harlin directed the hell out of it. It was gorgeous. And then there's dream child, and then Freddie's dead and all the way up to Freddie versus Jason, the Freddie versus Jason was for me where John rose started to, to slip a little bit because they, they kept on forgetting that what made these films, so appealing is that the characters and the young cast were actually all good kids, everybody and the first elm street. They were good kids, the second elm street. They were good kids thirds, elm street. They were good kids when we got into Freddie versus Jason the kids were assholes pot smokers pornographers and just obnoxious leci-. And I think one of the things that the horror genre, I would love to see a return to. To the horror genre, as that you don't have to be an asshole to enjoy someone. I suppose they did that largely to try to foster more identified with the killer something that was an effect, certainly because I think the goal was it's upsetting to see people that you like die, and it's more fun to see people that you don't like die. So why don't we have more people that you don't like in these films? And we're supposed to not want them to die usually her tag, NASA. There was what's the point? Right. Don't identify with the killer, the killer, civilian is there such thing, as too much back story in an horror genre. There's a lot of reliance on backstory because usually some mystery is happened before the credits or some history of characters past that makes them suspect. So there's a lot of back story. I feel like with backstory. It's you should use as much backstory as your story demand. And I love playing with structure and jumping around a person's life to tell tale. So I'm I'm not afraid of backstory. I don't think backstory is I haven't identified a film, where I was like, oh, them in the back story. I would argue about the prequels because I've watched them recently, and one of the things that's interesting about the prequels is that the actual story of the prequels, and the arts in the ideas are really sound, and they're just not told in an enticing way. But I would argue that you could have made an interesting story, they just did it. Is Frankenstein is Frankenstein. Well, frankenstein's? Monster is AVI. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. I think Frankenstein, created the genre of zombies in film, and then Jorge Romero extrapolated from those things something much more subversive, and much more penetrative in American culture, I would for me. George Romero's, dawn at the dead film is one of my favorite horror films of all time, I think it is a political allegory, I think he was saying things that were so insightful about the classes and America that when you look at zombies in a mall and traditional zombie film, tropes. He is masterfully executing all of those horror elements in a way that brings it right to a social Justice scenario, particularly that opening when, in the ghettos, all of the poor are. Keeping their loved ones hidden away from the rest of the world because they know that they will kill them. And there's something so fascinating that, that film opens with a black community and a black woman who is trying to protect her black man husband from the military, because she knows that they're likely to kill him, whether he's Zambia or not. And that was something that was so profound that film, and really set the table for social commentary and away that blew my mind as a kid because I realized I was watching a political story about the race and class system in America, not as ambi- film. And that's why think that dawn of the dead transcends the horror genre as something that is so powerful and important in. Terms of how America operates and how America treats those who they believe are dead or not alive. This is safe to say that Frankenstein is more about a European essentially sensibility about India fears of its time, I would say, yes, I would say that Frankenstein is does have the certain European sensibility..

"I never saw a commercial or I just heard about it. And I was like enough for me just people under the stairs. No, thanks.

But do you know the shit's going against them? So. So basically begins we do telling the grim life appoint Dexter fool Williams. It's understandable that you may be expecting the film to be a heart attack horror movie steeped in the tangled dynamic agenda vacation race and family trauma. Interesting you wouldn't be entirely wrong.

Yeah. Wes, Craven's new nightmare. Last one was such a great spin. I think nightmare. There's so much about new nightmare to me. I mean, not only like helped redefine horror. But then he started making these metaphysics to that commented on horror and new nightmare was such a great take on people. Don't remember it. It's like, oh, we did this up street series, and it actually the films manifested this real killer. And so had can't place yourself in west craven place such a great it was such a I mean was he delightful to our? Yes, I'm believable. He was one of the gentlest kindest. Smartest people I've ever worked with. And I have a good story. For him with him too. Because I mean, I met him Bob said to west put my sister in her movie. I mean, it was another one of those and I played the teacher, which is still people remember, and then I'm west did they resurrected twilight zone, and he directed this one called chameleon, I came in addition for him, and the casting director was kind of I kind of play a robot. She's not really a robot. She manifest itself herself in in this machine science fiction thing, and I'm kind of half robot and half human, and it was kind of an emotional little scene, and I kind of teared up in it.

"west craven" Discussed on Kevin Pollak's Chat Show
"Like, they are big there is there dark there scares. There's also laughs men they are Hollywood. And you know, there's if if I'm lucky there's a song and dance number there's that. But then so so as terms of being a fan of Hollywood and film and the magic of of what entertainment can do the wizard of Oz was the first lab. Definitely was like as in my younger child and my little bit older than you know, three two or three years childhood. But in that mix was was labyrinth and back to the future, certainly. But then when I was in high school because people know that I love horror movies, I would say that is your calling to your love of movie would agree. And so so people know that about me, and in the thing that I always say that I was very scared kid. So I would always like I was intrigued by scary, movies and scary scenes like the wizard of Oz. The wicked witch I wanted to watch I was too scared. But when I got into high school, it was really examining Wes craven scream that made me realize that that horror was capable of saying a lot and still being culturally, relevant and cool. Because of course, Kevin Williamson script is. So like meta funny and the cast is fantastic. But that was a movie to me, I always point this out that. Scream, predated Columbine. And when I was in school. Yeah. And I was in middle school when when the Columbine shootings happened, and that was a big thing because I was in the suburbs. And they're in the suburbs in it was like, it was it was a thing that that kind of really resonated. But I realized that something like, and the reason I say when I found scream in high school because I was I was not in high school in the movie came out. But I realized like, oh, this is I mean spoil his, but you know, this twenty two this is two boys who are plotting to kill their friends, and and to privilege boys in, you know, in high school in white high school who are who are they just do it with a knife and do the gun, and so anyway, I not to bring it down. But like this is what is interesting to me. And fascinating to me about John. Tra. And as a result that was like, yes, I can enjoy genre films as entertainment, but that was the one that opened my eyes, and then as I dug more into west craven because he's kinda my favorite of all the horror tours when he was a philosophy professor, and he's like he didn't start making movies until he was a college professor. So he's very academic in a lot of ways. And and very thoughtful. I would argue and so when I went to college, and I did study film and could build my own program. Which is why say the state was like so great is because I could study John Ruth theory. And that is what I did. So it was a focus on political commentary in horror and SCI fi with a minor in women's studies. And so when I came to LA how you set yourself apart from all the other faces and all the other people and in my interest in John Rao, especially as a woman was something. I think that was kind of like oh. That's interesting about you. You know? And so it it actually has all come full circle in very much a lot of what my career ins-. Wow. That is a tremendous. It was a lot of words. Very impressed. You really took me on a journey. There is like this is weird. I look I here's the we. We have a wonderful smart audience. Yes. I actually all joking aside the audience that his tune into the show for as long as they have. Now are some of my favorite people. Love the ones who tweet at me. And Kevin after they'd listen to an episode little tweeter guess, sometimes to letting us know how much they've enjoyed it. And one of the things I get a kick out of doing now that Kevin is giving me the opportunity to guess us as much as I have is sometimes I'm lucky enough, and I have super famous movie stars like, John Reese Myers interview. And sometimes I have people who are arguably are not as famous John Smyers..
"west craven" Discussed on Poop Culture
"Seasons. But at. It's a cool show. If you check that out it's got like a prequel episode in it if I remember correctly, it's it's really low budget the way it set up. But it is what it is estimated kill count for ash guy. One for ash forty five really pretty respectable. Yeah. That doesn't count all the dead because they were already dead right L. He's if you count all the ones he has from army darkness. It's yeah. Hundred thousands. Then you look at Freddie, he's got forty two. But then again, he's got a lot more offscreen because he was a child killer. So you don't even know how many has a couple of interesting things, you know, the ashed didn't even get his last name until army darkness the third movie. I never knew he had a last name until doing the research for this. I always thought he was just a hash. Yes. Last name is auntie. No, it's Williams. I thought it was the elbows. It's slash e. This is actually kind of cool the cabinet. They used for evil dead actually had two deaths in that cabin previously before the movie. Really? Yeah. That you know that shit cabin in the woods that they fill original will. This little girl lives with her mother and grandmother in that cabin. So I don't know what year this was maybe like the fifties or forties or some shit like that she went into her mother's room to sleep with her because she was cold FIS out her mother's dead diner bed. Go gets up to go in her grandmother's room to wake her up. She's dead. Yeah. You're gonna warm up cuddled up next to either one of them who've. And then part of the story goes when they were filming this that there was some dude like wandering around around these cabins because this was filmed in the south. So people are like out hunting and shit. So they didn't think anything of it. But then they acid like what are you doing here? And I guess the woman that lived in that house grew up as the little girl grew up every time it rained outside. She would leave the other form house that she had moved to. And she grew up in and go looking in the woods for something. And they were searching for because it was raining outside to help fucking nuts. Is that that's frizty? Yes. Sam rayvey said that they never they don't know if they ever found her anything, but that's a crazy fucking story, man. See when you're an indie filmmaker you gotta sacrifice. We can get a good deal on a location. You gotta take it. Oh, absolutely. How how many people died here? Okay. I'll take it. Yeah. Yeah. Sounds good cook at a discount. We'll talk about budget, though, some other ships. They didn't this movie that never happens any more number one. They used real bullets in the shotgun. When they're shooting in the woods and stuff because they couldn't afford any of the fake stuff. They use a real one and this one you'll love, you know, the part where ashes like kind of going crazy. Yeah. Not where he's like laughing. And that just where he looks like out of sorts or whatever will he we'd real wheat? Why would you eat it while I guess somebody gave it to them the, you know, an edible or some shit the aid it, and that's how the and they just filled it. They just went with Dr method acting guy if really high pretty awesome Shem weird wild stuff down with that as far as neighbor gnome street. You know, west craven said it's loosely based on true stories that he read in newspapers about these people who did not want to go to sleep they're free to sleeping, and then they actually died in their sleep. Yeah. I'm gonna pass on that. It's a hard pass for me. You guys, I'm not I'm not not interested. I'm pretty busy this week. I'm not trying to my sleep. I don't know about you. And then actually the name, Freddie. Krueger was named after west Craven's childhood bully. Really? Yeah. Just took the name. Now. That's the way to get back at your fucking bully. Wait until you're an adult. Right. Create a character that people will fear for the rest of your lives and the name after that bully, and I got the last laugh at fucker.

"west craven" Discussed on We'll See You In Hell
"I thought she kind of had a bigger career. But I guess not. I think it is an absolutely original film. Yeah. For this yawn or particularly. Yeah. And I think that I don't know. Maybe I'm just too caught up on. Maybe I have to rewatch it yet another time and not look at it as a horror film, but sort of as this strange caper. Yeah. Movie put at the point in my life and in west Craven's career when this film came out. I was absolutely incapable of seeing him in any way. Right. Besides a horror creator, the movie was marketed that way, and it has since not been there has been no revisionist history with it. You know, it has not been ret conned in any way to to say like, actually, this really isn't a horror film. It's actually more of a strange through thriller, or whatever. And like I said like you said they make that reveal of they're not monsters down there. Yeah. So early the kid is one of the mcpaul's kid with no tongue. He is. Yeah. Is that is that the guy from? Is that the cow the other not the one on Westworld? Not Jimmy Simpson is the other MC Poile. Okay. No shit realize that. I would have been more scared to have them in polls down there. Yeah. It's I think clearly to me the fact that that reveal happens so early in the movie and takes a lot of the threat out means to me Wes craven wanted to say. Something more that he wanted to scare also there's like some comedy in it. That's a little awkward a lot of like kind of post home alone. Trat when he sends the dog down and stuff because it was a year after home alone. Yeah. There's a lot of Ving Raines is scared of the dog bit rut, I felt like this was not intended to be super scary. Even though I've always heard it described by friends as being terrifying. Now, it's not and times change. But I I liked it. I went back and watch the Ebert and Cisco neighbor review of it, which you can find almost any old movie review on YouTube by Cisco neighbor and Ebert loved it. Cisco kinda was a little down on it. But I thought, you know, for instance, I would've liked to have seen a rogue monster in the basement, maybe one of them is evil. Sure, you've got one that's helping them and being nice to them. Right. Have an evil one that poses a threat because that's the thing. Once the people are out of the once the husband and wife out of the house, which they are frequently. Yeah, there's no threat. Yeah. They're just in a pick. And by the way, there's no real threat if they're in the house, it's like it's like get it gun. Go downstairs kill them in. We've in nobody'll know what the fuck happened here. Right. So I, you know, I it's kind of I would've liked to have. And I was like, okay. If you're not gonna go that route. I would've liked to have seen a more gruesome ending for the husband and wife, I thought because I didn't really remember what happened at the end. I thought for certain one of them would be eaten alive by these cannibal people in the basement, I never happens. Now, you know, and it's just not a lot of big good scares. And when it's a kid in jeopardy and kind of a wise cracking kid boot, it did have more of a home alone feel honestly, but. Tarintino a big fan of people under the stairs casting Rams and Pulp Fiction of years later and also that game costume, which seemed a little familiar now after that first season of American horror story and Pulp Fiction, and it's cetera. I imagine that was a lot more disturbing in nineteen Ninety-one..

Which way the one of one of the things that I thought of though with that little intro, the low warning thing at the beginning is I thought of a couple of different movies that also big love of mine and the way that they were marketed, and that was the regional way that they marketed and even the trailers for a west cravings. I spit on your grave and then blood feast Herschell, Gordon, Lewis's movie, her cheval and Lewis is blood. Feast was the first one I believe that used the whole it's only a movie, it's only movie, and then of course, I spent on your grave of west craven took that idea in, and that's the one that everybody always thinks with it's only a movie trailer and speaking though of west craven, he had a movie back in the eighties, and it's a really cheesy movie, but I really love it called deadly friend. It's about. At a a like a computer nerd teenager who his neighbor is beautiful blonde, girl and she liked dies. And he like puts a computer brain in her in her in her head or something. I can't remember exactly this is is is great. I love it deadly friend. Oh. There's a scene in there though. Where of like, there's this mean old lady, I can't remember like what what are how it happens? But it's like like she's like the mean old lady in the neighborhood that like if you were playing basketball on the ball went in her your argue don't wanna go get the bar that type of thing. And so there's something to do with the basketball. And and it's Kristy Swanson who plays the the groom the row wet girl. And she actually throws the the basketball at the old ladies head and disliked the head explodes. It's so great. It's not one that people think of west cravings better films. But I I love. And then I let me see I'm trying to look at Melissa hit on some of the ones that I had just wrote down again, some of the the the more modern updates on Frankenstein just to mention the reside Frankenstein movie that everybody hates I actually enjoyed. Victor, Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein that everybody hated but I actually enjoy. And then van van Helsing, which I didn't love. But I thought was you know, fun. Armie hated that. When as well. Yeah. Nice. And oh, oh, yeah. I was just watching the other day for the first time the Beatles movie yellow submarine, I I've never seen that before. I don't know why. But I just never had. I ever did. I probably did when I was a kid at some point. But I certainly don't remember actually watching it. Yeah. I remember as a kid. I was wanting to see it so bad. And then I don't know why just never got to see. But I was just watching that like 'cause it's on Amazon it showed up on Amazon. So it was like I never watched this put it on. And it was there's actually seen in there. Where of it's this is such a weird trippy LSD influenced. Frankenstein's in the movie at one point. And he liked I I don't remember exactly what happens like, I think he's like sleeping, and then he wakes up and he liked drink something, and then he turns into John Lennon. So I thought that was cool..

"And now we'll we got to work with. We've got nothing. There's I mean in terms of I think this movie came out at a time where starting to acknowledge media tropes in tax is becoming trendy but not necessarily doing much about it. Because this is like, you know, third wave feminism time this is squarely in the like girl power. But as we see in this not very diverse movie and race or once again, women's body types. It's like, okay, there is some level of catharsis and liberation for women, but only very specific type of young conventionally attractive, white straight, women, exactly. And that I mean, I think that that shows up in almost every movie of this era of you also can be a murderer. If you look hot n lay by the rule. It's like they're it's progressive for its time. But certainly not yet. And it's a little I would maybe a little disappointing coming from west craven because we had a string of movies before that that are a little more like progressive the people under the stairs. I think is one of like just like. I'm not familiar. It's it's I mean, I'm gonna say all this with a grain of salt because I haven't watched any of these movies in like years, but you know, people under the stairs is a porn movie about like gentrification that puts a young black kid at the at the center of the movie, and it's so good in so freaky. And like, I think he did a little more interesting stuff with just the idea of these marriages a couple years before with new nightmare. But this is kind of all that stuff. I feel like screen was kind of like dealing with the same stuff as new nightmare. I don't wanna say dumbed down. But like, you know, for a mass uprising broader for a broader audience, right? And in the screenwriter Kevin Williamson. I mean, kind of builds his his career on an and I love a lot lot has a lot to me where what else does he does? So he is the force behind Dawson's creek ever heard of the vampire diaries screams, one two and four. I know what you did. Last summer faculty, which I think might be like the faculty might be the one movie from this wave of late ninety s horror that I actually like Mormon scream, really. I love the faculty. Well, I've never seen the facts. It is alisha would Josh heart. Josh hartnett. Yes. Beeping new worth is in Asia show. John Stewart is a teacher at it early. Okay. But there is this through line even with this specific relatively progressive writers work where in a lot of these. And I'm pulling mainly from Dawson's creek in early vampire diaries, where there's a lot of well written female characters that are making active choices, they're complicated. They have back stories, but again like in scream, it's almost across all the work. We just mentioned a very specific type of that. I'm sure that this agency is available to scream to comments on the lack of diversity in horror movies to some extent. And that must be seems to have have made like a more conscious effort in terms of casting to cast more people of color in the movie, but all of those characters are. Are in supporting roles. None of them are really in the main cast, and then that effort to be more inclusive in the sequels after that in scream three and four just doesn't happen again. I mean as far as I remember scream to just kind of opens with like a like the opening murder is who it's Jada Pinkett Smith. Yeah. And her boyfriend, I forget who plays your boyfriend's. Yes. So do I at a screaming of stab, which is the fake franchises in the screen universe that you got it. But like, you know, so it does very much feel like they're it's like, okay, we paid lip service to this idea where we're acknowledging that now let us get on it and make the real movie. Yeah. Right. Uh-huh. Yeah..

A lot of people's deals are coming up, and a lot of people are very unhappy with management at new Japan pro wrestler, really, who's deals are coming up. Everybody's. I mean, the thing is a lot of, I think they do the deals their yearly and they all come up in January or at least a lot of them do. Like, that's what happened when AJ nakimora and the club left when they were always once they did the January fourth show, and then they gave notice at the dome who are the big, who are the big big most rumored people that are thinking about going to WWE other than Josh, though there's there's no no names, no specific names have been given credit and no. No rumors. Other the talk talk and shit. No one has really said anything, right? No, nobody said anything. I mean, there are things that like get said on episodes of being the elite, or you know, Tana Hashi doing interviews about, you know, like, why are we doing these waterdown? Americanized shows like people in America, wanna see Japanese show, right, you know. Yeah. And then Cody that tweet. Where he was like wrestlers right now have never been like, you know, smarter more well behaved x, y, and z. And then he's like, management has never been last. So yeah, I saw that. Yeah. Does because it's these two guys running the show. Now ghetto ghettos the Booker. He's in charge of creative, but then you got management and it's at its herald may and then this other guy craven or something. Yeah. Who's kind of talent relations, I guess. Right. Not west craven.

Do you wanna play a quick turn the page with old for leading door? PWI five hundred. I wanna know why wrestling management is is always Sonal. Tori. Asli bad. Why? Because it's about the bottom line. And that's the bottom line because stolen cold said. So do you think it's because an inborn resentment of on the part of the wrestlers. So actively literally risking their lives night in a night out. Definitely. And and then to be treated like just a commodity like, well, you know, because when you get down to, you know, nut cut in time, and then there's the fucking negotiation and it's like, well, you're not worth this much because of XYZ and it's like mother fucker. I literally broke my back last year just that constant of like no matter how high you get when it comes time to do the deal. Yeah, we're going to try to give you as little as we can because that's business and it. And then when you have people who don't come from a wrestling background who are purely businessmen than they approach for a much wrestlers are sensitive souls as tough as they are as hard as they work. They in my experience at WWE I was like, oh my gosh. These guys are more insecure than any comedian. I know. That's a statement that is a statement, you know, because there is a certain drive to be entertainment because of seeking acceptance and all that jazz driven by insecurity. I know I come from a place of that, but at the same time, you know, put on three hundred pounds of muscle because you're comfortable with who you are. So there is that added aspect of the athletes and pushing your your yourself, even further, you know. And the athlete perspective as well that it's what I know, but the the mentality of an athlete..
