Welcome to another exciting and breathtaking episode of “Who What When Where & Why We Do in the Shadows” featuring the vocal talents of Bryan Dressel, Matt “Catherine Cat Crawfield” Dykes, Drew “John Not A Vampire At All” Staton, and Joel “Jane” DeWitte. Bask in their glory as they discuss the hilarious episode “Baron’s Night Out,” which is just an all around great piece of television. Did you catch the connection to the first episode? Anyway, enjoy!
Richard Donner had quite the film career in his lifetime and we wanted to honor that by spending a month reflecting on some of his best films (and one film he got to re-edit after it was cruelly taken away from him). We kick things off with his first critical and commercial breakthrough, “The Omen,” starring Gregory Peck as a diplomat / ambassador whose son may or may not be (but totally is) the Antichrist. It’s a well-paced horror film that never overstays its welcome, and it manages to pepper a few shocking kills throughout its runtime. That’s not to say the film is without its share of flaws, and we go into those as well. An overall compelling start to our month honoring the late Richard Donner.
