The Scarecrow Video Podcast Episode 17: Demons 2, Jungle Fever & Black Jack gum

Welcome to the latest episode of the Scarecrow Video Podcast. Matt and I are joined by Amie Simon, who writes about horror films on her excellent blog I Love Splatter and contributes to the sparkly indie-pop press of Three Imaginary Girls, for an insightful discussion of the movies we've been watching.

After I talk about the great documentary THINGS THAT AREN'T HERE ANYMORE on some of Seattle's erstwhile landmarks, Amie & Matt get in to the gristle of Dario Argento, DEMONS 2, HOSTEL, and other horror movies.


Matt loves Gregory Peck as the passive protagonist in William Wyler's new to Blu-ray THE BIG COUNTRY. He also recently revisited Spike Lee's JUNGLE FEVER and thinks you should too.


Amie and I share our fondness for the music of PUMP UP THE VOLUME and wonder if such a dated (aka pre-Internet) movie would mean anything to the kids today.

Much thanks to Amie for joining our cinematic conversation. Until next time, talk hard, everyone.
