DRtL Episode 33: Horror Romances!

Posted on Nov 23 2015 in Episodes

Wooo-hooo, look at us! We swore we would have a new episode ready in two weeks and by God we actually did it.

Inspired by our recent viewing of Crimson Peak, this time we’re taking a look at Horror Romances! Even though the course of true love never quite runs smooth in a horror movie — it’s hard to give someone your heart when they really do want your heart, and they’re willing to use their sharpest knives to get it — we’re cuddling up as close to this topic as we can get. Do join us, won’t you, dear?

  1. Hi guys! I’m glad you’re getting back to a regular update schedule, and that you managed to see “Crimson Peak” before it disappeared from theaters. I thought your “Horror Romances” episode was great, and would like to suggest two titles to add to the list. First, “Magic,” a 1978 thriller directed by Richard Attenborough and starring Anthony Hopkins, Ann-Margaret, and Burgess Meredith, in which a ventriloquist’s attempts to reconnect with an old flame are complicated by his murderous dummy. Second — and I’ll be honest, I’m astonished this didn’t come up — “The Phantom of the Opera,” most notably the silent classic starring Lon Chaney, the 1943 version in which it seems like the police inspector and the lead baritone might pick each other over Christine, and the film adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.

    You know, you could probably get a good-sized segment, if not a whole episode, just by discussing different versions of PotO, especially if you include looser adaptations like “Phantom of the Paradise.” Hell, you probably could get an entire hour just talking about the many, many movies about Dracula.

    OK, I’m starting to wander off point. To recap: loved your last episode, hope you can keep ’em coming regularly.

  2. Thank you so much for the awesome comment. Reason I didn’t include PotO it is I haven’t seen it. But your recommendation is certainly good enough reason in my book to change that. 🙂

    In regards to Magic I have seen it and even mentioned it in Creepy dolls and just didn’t even think of it for this episode and should have!

    Thank you for all the great suggestions.


  3. I was completely confusing Q – The Winged Serpent, with another movie.. It was not a lost movie.
