Meanwhile, Over At Dread Media....#616

It’s time for another Recent Movie Round-Up over here at Chez Reddick!  Des gives us his take on the Jordan Peele flick Us, I stomp through my feelings on Godzilla: King of The Monsters, and we unite to celebrate the Awesomeness That Is Sam Elliott when we cover the rather...strange character study of The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot!

The trailers are below (or in the case of Us, a dissection of the trailer since I already posted the trailer), as is some behind-the-scene footage, an animated musical version of Godzilla, and a...surprising proposed sequel.

THE 31 CHARACTERS 31 DAYS CHALLENGE DAY TWENTY EIGHT

Even though I fell down on the promised ‘One character for every day’ event, you should still contribute to RAINN.  There’s a movement to reduce women to property--the phrase ‘consensual rape’ that’s being dropped by certain Alt-Right ‘Conservatives’ to justify their anti-abortion stance both chills and outrages me.  Please donate to this organization devoted to helping women and children stand up for themselves after being violated.

This event is to create 31 characters, one for every day in May (although at this point, it's going to take until the end of June to finish this thing) , that will be featured in an upcoming project I’m working on tentatively called Strikeforce Liberty.

If you are a Domicile of Dread Patreon, you’ll get a short podcast discussing the creation process for each character.  I made one of these podcasts available to the general public here.  If you’d like to hear all of these podcasts, get other exclusive goodies like reviews and essays, and can spare at …

Do you know the difference between a monster and a monsta?  You’re about to find out this week as we celebrate the Tremors franchise!  First Darryll joins Des to cover the original film, then I join him for the most recent entry, Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell.

The trailers for both movies--and both the TV series Syfy aired in 2003 and passed on last year--are below, as is a brief discussion of The Bobbit Worm, an actual living thing that could be related to the Graboids!

THE MOVIES OF MY LIFE PHASE ONE: Lisztomania (1975)

As you may have gathered from some of the essays here at the Domicile (especially the ones that praise the work of Phillipe Mora), I have a weakness for directors who are a little on the flamboyant side.  We don’t have as many as we used to these days, but in the 70‘s and 80‘s there were a couple of greats....and none was greater than the one and only Ken Russell.

Ken Russell was one of those directors whose vision was so out there that I sometimes wondered if he was legitimately insane.  The best of his films are unlike anything you would expect from it’s subject matter--and this film is typical of that.  It’s obstensively about Franz Liszt, drawing parallels between his life and that of Roger Daltrey, the modern rock star that’s playing him...but it evolves into this story where Lizst is fighting against a Frankensteinian Richard Wagner, complete with Nazi uniform and guitar that spits out bullets, with a plane that is powered by the voices of the five female leads and shaped like …

KILLJOY STANDS REVEALED!

You wanna know how cool Chauncey K. Robinson is?
Yesterday, she consented to become a villain in the super-hero serial/novel/I’m-still-not-sure-what-it-is-yet Strikeforce: Liberty.  I had problems finding a proper illustration or photo to go with the identity I came up with her, the mirth-murdering marauder Killjoy.  I mentioned this to her....and she came up with one of her own!
She didn’t have to do that, but she did!  I am so grateful she took the time to do this, and very pleased she is my friend.  If you have not yet, please check out her YouTube channel and blog, both under the banner of The Twisted Girl Next Door.  Also check out her writings at People’s World and follow her on Twitter at @MsChaunceyKR!
Remember, this going-on-longer-than-I-expected event is to benefit The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN).  The Alt-Right--which has become just 'The Right--is waging an active war on women’s right, which includes taking away a lot of the tools women who have be…

THE 31 CHARACTERS 31 DAYS CHALLENGE DAY TWENTY SEVEN

Even though it’s June 3rd and I still owe you five characters doesn’t mean you should blame RAINN.  There’s a movement to reduce women to property--the phrase ‘consensual rape’ that’s being dropped by certain Alt-Right ‘Conservatives’ to justify their anti-abortion stance both chills and outrages me.  Please donate to this organization devoted to helping women and children stand up for themselves after being violated.

This event is to create 31 characters, one for every day in May (although it looks like, due to my depression, that said event will bleed into early June) , that will be featured in an upcoming project I’m working on tentatively called Strikeforce Liberty.

If you are a Domicile of Dread Patreon, you’ll get a short podcast discussing the creation process for each character.  I made one of these podcasts available to the general public here.  If you’d like to hear all of these podcasts, get other exclusive goodies like reviews and essays, and can spare at least a dollar a…

It’s Italian Zombies and the birth of Good Ol’ American Gore in this week’s episode.  First Des and Darryll get all Etruscan as they review one of the many, many films that tried to pass itself off as Zombie 3, Burial Ground.  Then Rich The Monster Movie Kid delves into the first of Herschell Gordon Lewis’ Exercises in Extreme Violence, Blood Feast!

The trailers are below, as is a tour of creepy real-life burial grounds and the Misfits playing a medley of their hits including ‘Bloodfeast’
