One hundred and nine is a big number, some might call it scary, or at the very least, daunting, and yet it only tells one story about Dollar Reviews. Join us for this seemingly final hurrah as we reflect on the mad genius of David Lynch and his first journey into the subterranean terror of working class Americans #IdBuyThatForADollar
Some films are claimed to be so bad that they are scary, so with Halloween still in the air, and Ron Perlman in the cast, we decided to see what all the fuss is about. What we got is a legendary history of a troubled production, stars impersonating each other on film, awesome makeup, and a fairly interesting tale with just a few too many issues to overlook.
Some things once seen can never be unseen and Count Orlok is perhaps the first filmic example of that maxim. Without jump scares, audio cues, gore, or even color, F. W. Murnau gave the world a creature so horrifying that cinema is still trying to catch up 100 years later #IdBuyThatForADollar
Time is a curious thing, the more we have of it, the less we care; however, every October I fully embrace death and view those scary little films I tell myself I never have time for. Starting the season off proper is this foreign treat, Guillermo del Toro’s first film – his reinvention of vampirism, aka the supernatural solution for time eternal #SilverDollar
Another holiday, another killing joke about the horrors of celebrating the second year of this podcast. Given how dear The Faculty, Scream, and especially Dawson’s Creek are to me, how has this Kevin Williamson script held up 20 years after the fact? Spoiler: There aren’t filmic fireworks, but I definitely appreciate Scary Movie more now.
If you’ve never seen this one, you owe it to yourself to watch it as counter programming on Father’s Day like we did. Such a smart script, an even better monster, and the scariest true tale there ever was without being terrifying on screen #IdBuyThatForADollar
Let’s be honest, with the never ending recycle process entertainment goes through, one block of original/remake tandems wasn’t going to last long. Steve apologized in advance for not picking the Universal monster incarnation, but seeing 1999’s/the release of Dark Universe made me want to see the origin of their only true original franchisee #SilverDollar
