Don’t Read The Latin! Episode 61: Witches!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Jul 25 2017

Welcome back! This episode marks a new, exciting time for Don’t Read the Latin, as Michael Montoure has decided to step back from co-hosting for now as he has a lot on his plate at the moment. Jennifer Lovely is still happily here, though, discussing horror movies and her love of them, and each episode will have a rotating cast of co-hosts joining her. There will be many of the voices you’ve heard in previous episodes, and we can all look forward to some new ones joining the mix, too!

In this episode she is joined by Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School (http://www.gothic-charm-school.com/) and they are discussing witches and witchcraft, although we know it’s simply taboo!

Onward to an all-new era of Don’t Read the Latin adventures!

DRtL Episode 24: Orphans and Orphanages!

1 Comment | This entry was posted on Jun 01 2015

We’re back from Crypticon! We had a pretty great time, and we’re here to tell you about it. And Montoure has some selections from this year’s Seattle International Film Festival! All of which turns out to be a good thing, because the topic we had chosen for this episode turns out to be a little thin on the ground. It sure seemed like creepy orphans and orphanages were a staple of the horror genre, but we ended up having to kind of stretch our definitions to find enough to talk about ….

Episode Seventeen: We Kind of Like the 90’s!

Hello, boys and ghouls, welcome back once again to another episode of Don’t Read the Latin! This time, after our in-depth two-part episode on the 80’s, we’re going to dive into a, well, slightly less-loved decade, but one that still has more than a few gems in it. Join us, won’t you? You’ll learn more about Jennifer’s seemingly random Hollywood crushes, the too-cool-for-film-school pretentiousness of The Addiction and The Prophecy, and which movie features Billy Zane at his Billy Zaniest!

Bonus YouTube Videos!
In our discussion of Stigmata (oh, Stigmata, you’re not a good movie, but we kind of like you anyway), Jennifer brings up a Chumbawumba song from the soundtrack that’s really kind of awesome. If you’ve only ever heard that “I get knocked down” drinking song of theirs, you really need to put this in your ear-holes.

Finally, here’s the channel introduction for Count Jackula, the horror review show that we mention:

Episode Ten: It Happened On Halloween!

“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.)

Episode Eight: Found Footage

“It’s not like [Rob Zombie] is out there strong-arming small children for their candy money.”
“Although — you can kinda picture that, can’t you?”
“I kinda can, yeah.”

Felicitations, fright fans! Are you ready to face a fantastic festival of fearsome found footage films?

…. All right, that’s enough alliteration for one post. Welcome to another episode with your hosts Jennifer Lovely and Michael Montoure, as we bring you the skinny on horror cinema’s fastest-growing sub-genre, and discuss its strengths and limitations.

Expect chills, thrills, and more:

  • Why found footage films don’t try to emulate Blair Witch‘s improvised scenes
  • Scooby Doo as a gateway drug to horror
  • Our guilty fondness for the recent Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated series
  • How The Blair Witch Project lead the way for small-budget productions like The Battery and Jug Face
  • Jennifer rants entertainingly about Rob Zombie, Amanda Palmer, and crowdfunding
  • A blink-and-you’ll-miss-it LMFAO reference, and a mention of Christian Bale’s spectacular on-set meltdown
  • Montoure has this episode’s “Fuck This Noise” moment, with the indie horror feature “All Cheerleaders Die”

Let us know what you think, and thanks for listening!
