Episode 176


Recommended Posts

It's giant wild boars, human slavery, decapitations, and bad impressions this week on Dread Media. So, basically, it's business as usual. Darryll and Desmond look at Pig Hunt. Then Desmond goes solo on And Soon the Darkness, and the novella by Kurt Newton and LL Soares, Breaking Eggs, in a nasty classic episode. Tunes include: "Booneville Stomp" by Les Claypool, "I am a Pig" by Two, "The Human Traffic King (White Slavery Pt. 2)" by Necro, "Buried with Children" by Wednesday 13, and "Red Velvet Upholstery, Black Leather Curtains (Blade Slays Edward Remix)" by Mary Shelley Overdrive.

What I suspect happened with this one is this: What the writers of this film (and the director, too, I suspect) really wanted to do was tell a story about crazed rednecks, stoned cultists and giant pig gods. They hemmed themselves in, though, thinking the genre required those conventional, normal characters to introduce everything. And that's why, after forty-five minutes of boring, empty-headedness the film suddenly busts free of itself and starts to rock.

My point is, If you want to make a movie about crazed rednecks, stoned cultists and giant pig gods, then fucking do it. Don't pussy around it for half the film until you get to the part you're actually interested in filming. Fuck convention and tell the story you want. From the start. And I guaran-fuckin-tee the audience will thank you for it. They will also sense if you are anything less than one hundred percent committed to your story. So commit.
