Episode 45: Meta Horror Movies, feat. Jim Laczkowski of Director’s Club

THE FIRST PODCAST ABOUT MOVIES THAT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT’S A PODCAST ABOUT MOVIES!!



Gabe (looks directly into camera): This is a podcast about making podcasts. The podcasters are also acknowledging you, the listener, directly. Yeah, you, Derek. Oh, and the fabric of the podcast is also haunting us and maybe killing you. And by you, I mean Derek. Anyway, join me and returning guest Jim Laczkowski as we look at the phenomenon of meta horror movies. We initially planned on covering José Mojica Marins' Hallucinations in a Deranged Mind (1978), Lucio Fulci's Cat in the Brain (1990), Julian Richards' The Last Horror Movie (2003), and Prano Bailey-Bond's Censor (2021), but the discussion ended up requiring comparisons to Wes Craven's New Nightmare (1994), Dario Argento's Tenebrae (1982), and David Cronenberg's Videodrome (1983), and many more.
