0 Comments | This entry was posted on Aug 04 2019

Hey, Latin Illiterates, it’s our big one-oh-oh, and for this extra-sized centennial episode Jennifer Lovely and Rhias Hall had the wonderful idea to get their friends together and talk about the 5 movies that most influenced their lives.

To that end, they gathered Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School , Monty Ashley of The Incomparable Podcast Network, Jeff Harris of Fanboy News Network , and lil’ ol’ me, Handsome Husband Jim.

You’ll learn a lot about us as people, how kids are sheltered from violent media unlike in our day (also get off our lawns), movies that were made by piles of cocaine, and hear the shriek of the Man-Bat.

Thanks for listening, folks, and here’s to another 100!

DRtL Episode 28: Comfort Movies!

You know what we’re talking about — you’re home for a sick day, or maybe you’ve just straight-up run out of fucks. In either case, it’s time to crash on the couch with a pint of ice cream. Or maybe not — maybe it’s just time to try to get something done around the house that you’ve been putting off, like tackling that mountain of laundry, and you just want a movie to put on that won’t demand your full attention.

However it goes, you reach for a comfort movie — something you’ve already seen a zillion times, but just don’t get tired of. The cinematic equivalent of comfort food. A big ol’ audio-visual bowl of macaroni and cheese. Maybe with the emphasis on “cheese.” (As such, this episode sometimes strays way, way far out of strict horror movie territory. We promise you’ll be entertained anyway.)

We are joined this time by the always-charming Jillian Venters, the Lady of the Manners herself, from Gothic Charm School!

Episode Eleven: Horror Comedies

Welcome to another Halloween season episode of your favorite horror movie podcast! (At least, we assume we’re your favorite horror movie podcast. If we’re not, please don’t tell us.)

In this episode, Jennifer rants about Kevin Smith, whose recent film, “Tusk,” seems to be one inside joke aimed at the fans of podcast. (We here at Don’t Read the Latin promise that if we ever make a movie of our own, we’re not going to just pander to our existing fanbase — we intend to pander to everyone.)

We also talk about economy of storytelling, Harlan Ellison, Jen’s Big Black Gothic Yard Sale, and Michael’s upcoming Halloween reading!

“Welcome to DRTL, the podcast that is not about Beastmaster.”

It’s October! It’s October! That means that this whole next month is, effectively, Halloween. We got a little excited.

This time, we’re talking about movies that take place on or around Halloween.  (Yes, including the original Halloween.) How many of them do you think you can watch this month?

 

Finally here’s a …. a …. Call it a “bonus video.” (It will make sense once you listen to the episode, honestly.)
