In this episode of Dread Media, Desmond Reddick starts the countdown to 100 with an interview with Severin Films head, legendary genre film documentarian and writer / director David Gregory. Then Darryll and Desmond sit down to look at David's first feature film, Plague Town. Feedback aplenty, and tunes to keep you up at night. Including: "There is a Town" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, "Fall Children" by AFI and "I'm Eighteen" by Bette. [ 1:46:51 || 49.1 MB ]

At last, a cultured accent on Dread Media! Nationality aside, I enjoyed the interview quite a bit and it's interesting that Plague Town split you and Darryl because, as you pointed out, you guys normally come at a film from the same POV.

And before you mentioned the Alberta area code, I had a totally different theory about who Canoe Reeves was this week.

Slothian, you're right. Des and I do have pretty similar tastes in film. I guess I like my horror a little more mainstream than he does but he may have something to say about that. I believe our widest opinion split was on Martyrs which Des loved and I despised. I'm sure there will be other films that test our man love for one another.

I didn't totally dislike Plague Town. I just thought it required some tighter editing, a few extra shots to establish spacial relationships in some scenes, and a little more 'oomf' during the action beats. I also thought the father's demise was pretty weak. It did, however, provide some creepy atmosphere, some convincing gore shots, and a believable relationship among the principles. Not bad for a directorial debut.

You thought Dubs? Also, it's been like a month since I interviewed a limey. Next episode features not one but two cohosts doing a Christopher Lee impression and Darryll's Edward Woodward impression is likely to be clipped and used in perpetuity...you'll have to wait and see. But that did tease what's covered next episode.

I told you never to tell!

- I did think Dubs!

- There's a difference between "being a limey" and "having a cultured accent", because I'm pretty sure Liverpudlians are technically limeys. But I'm all for impressions of those particular actors; if only they'd appeared in a horror film together...
