Episode 21: Most Dangerous Game Shows, feat. Luana Saitta of Monster Island Commentaries

THE REVOLUTION WILL BE TELEVISED AND IT WILL BE BROUGHT TO YOU EXCLUSIVELY BY MING TEA! TURN ON, TUNE IN, DROP DEAD!


Psychotic games and sadistic reality television are on the docket this month. Gabe and returning guest Luana Saitta of Monster Island & Movie Lobby Commentaries check out three politically-charged classics about televised death sport, including Elio Petri’s The 10th Victim (Italian: La decima vittima, 1965), Paul Bartel’s Death Race 2000 (1975), and Paul Michael Glaser’s The Running Man (1987). Come for the wacky costumes and violence, stay for the endless puns and surprisingly prescient social satire.
