Horror B-Sides: The Gift (2000)

Growing tired of our lackluster choices so far this month, we here at Behind the Hype decided to try out a different horror filmmaker’s b-sides to see if we might be able to turn this ship around. We chose Sam Raimi’s “The Gift,” which unfortunately was nowhere near as good as we had hoped and featured almost nothing that we could recognize as a Raimi’ism. It wasn’t completely terrible and had some interesting bright spots, but it’s certainly an odd duck in our month of odd duck films.

Horror B-Sides: Mimic (1997)

A creature feature with human-sized bugs eating people in subways seems like it was tailor-made for the talents of Guillermo Del Toro, but alas, that is not what we got. Mimic should have been so much better than it was, but its parts did not work together to create a cohesive whole. We break down all the things that didn’t work, and point out some of the Del Toro staples that could have been so much more if…well…there had been so much more.

Richard Donner: Lethal Weapon 2 (1989)

This week on our show we brought in everyone’s favorite “Zombie Dog” Matt Dykes to talk about the next film in our Richard Donner retrospective: “Lethal Weapon 2.” We had a lot to talk about with this one, from the shoddy police work on display to the scene stealing/chewing Joe Pesci to the very nebulous villains hiding behind their diplomatic immunity. Fun film and equally fun conversation so let’s get right to it.

Richard Donner: Superman II: The Donner Cut (1980)

For many of the millennial persuasion, Richard Donner is the guy who directed Superman, which in turn introduced us to the great Christopher Reeve. Due to a lot of bullshit that is well-documented elsewhere, he was removed from the sequel and Richard Lester was brought in to take his place as director. That version of the film is the version we all grew up with and for the most part loved. And then The Donner Cut came along and gave us insight into what could have been and the results are…also very damn good. We go into all of this and more so let’s not waste another minute.
