http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-C9zWuGHWvKY/Ue6abnpPnPI/AAAAAAAAz_Q/7IhAS4RVDRk/s640/You%27ve%2Bgot%2Bred%2Bon%2Byou.jpg

SPOILERS FOR SHAUN OF THE DEAD, CABIN IN THE WOODS, DRACULA: DEAD AND LOVING IT, AND FOX'S THE FOLLOWING 1x01

In this episode:
  • We discuss horror comedy--where it comes from, great examples of it, and why they can work so well together.
  • A taste of some of the movies we touch on:
    • Shaun of the Dead
    • Zombieland
    • Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
    • Cabin in the Woods
    • The Evil Dead series
    • Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV series)
    • The Scream series
    • Young Frankenstein
    • Dracula: Dead and Loving It
    • Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula
    • World War Z (movie and book) 
    • Slither
    • Ghostbusters 1 & 2
  • TALKIN' METADISCOURSE ALL UP IN HERE.
  • Several trips down memory lane. Bear with us.
  • We haven't seen Warm Bodies yet. We're sorry.
  • Laughing through moments of extreme terror in horror movies--where does it come from?
  • F$%!in' magnets--how do they work?
  • Loading Ready Run's Cthulhu sketch
THERE'S ALWAYS AN ADDENDUM:
  • This is rambly and meandering. Just a fair warning.
  • The villain in The Following is Joe Carroll, not Jonathan Carroll. 
  • I PROMISE I won't keep bringing up the rabbit dinner moment after this. Hopefully.
  • I lied when I said we covered all of the movies on my list. I wrote down the Scary Movie series and completely overlooked it by accident.
  • A comment from Fio's timestamps:
    • 19:14 - I was going to say this, then forgot about it. In an interview, Joss once said something about how everything you needed to know about Buffy was already in the title, “Buffy” being an inherently comical name, “Vampire” representing the horror the show was engaging with and “Slayer” promising a sort of high-stakes action. I’ve been digging through google and can’t find the direct quote, though.
  • I think I may have actually heard about Warm Bodies on the Made of Fail podcast. Whatever.
  • There are a LOT of horror comedies we didn't talk about or dig into, but as always, we love to hear from you guys! What are your favorite horror comedies--and are there any you'd like to hear us discuss on future podcasts?
  • Fio forgot to mention the email. It's amatteroftastepodcast at gmail.com.
 Music:
