Episode 172 Halloween

chatflix No Comments

With previous ChatFlix episodes looking at a crazed clown, a zombie apocalypse and a psycho camp killer, this week we lock the door, run upstairs and hide in a closet because now it’s time to chat the 1978 John Carpenter classic: Halloween! 

Babysitter Brose has planned pumpkin carving activities to distract Shaun and Jarrod from the mental hospital escapee Michael Myers, who looks an awful lot like the dude from Star Trek with no make up! 

Jamie Lee Curtis kicks off her Scream Queen reign as our hero, Laurie Strode. Supported by former James Bond villain, Donald Pleasence as Loomis as they attempt to survive the night ‘the guy who directed The Last Starfighter came home.’

Fire the Cannons! Cannon Films that is! Shaun and Brose team-up to look at the big gun talent Golan and Globus lured to Cannon during their command of the Cannon empire in our newest line of Chatflix Minis.

Starting with Charles Bronson, who is back as architect turned vigilante Paul Kersey, dishing out vengeance to all those troublesome gangs wishing for death so badly IN Death Wish 3 (so Death Wish-y this one doesn’t even need a subtitle).

This week we set up camp at Crystal Lake, we’ll be ok, yeah? Brose is joined by Sophie, Matt and Jarrod to chat the genesis of Jason Voorhees and the evolution of the slasher film.

Of course we discuss all the stars; Adrienne King, Kevin Bacon and… um… the guy from the police desk in Superman and… um… that weird Scooby Doo fella… you know… from Trading Places? All the stars!

Find out our thoughts on the first step of one of the most enduring horror franchises in cinema history.

ChatFlix Mini Wait Until Dark

chatflix No Comments

Brose and Stu round out chatting enclosed space thrillers with a classic; Wait Until Dark. Audrey Hepburn alongside a very young Alan Arkin and Richard Crenner.

In this week’s Chatflix Mini, Brose and Stu will have to wait until dark and sneak into Audrey Hepburn’s apartment in search of a heroin stuffed doll. Don;t ask why, just because! While you wait, they’ll chat about Terence Young’s 1967 non-James Bond Enclosed Space Thriller flick – Wait Until Dark.

With a Home Alone Hepburn and not so wet bandits Richard Crenna, Jack Weston, and a very young Alan Arkin supported by (close you eyes and listen for Batman Animated Series butler Alfred) Efrem Zimbalist Jr. 

Remember to get done before morning guys, they say Hepburn has plans for breakfast.

On the other side of a zombie apocalypse, Brose is unsure how he would fare… if using Colombus’ rules as a guide, he’d be stuffed! Luckily, at least for this episode, he will have the help of Danielle and Kathryn.

The tea double taps their way through this great film, starring Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigail Breslin.

With a ten year gap before the sequel, how does the original hold up? Listen to this week’s episode to find out!

Episode 166 The Joker

chatflix No Comments

No joking and no clowning around, this week the Chatflix team sit down for a SPOILER filled chat unpacking their reactions to the NEW release, JOKER.

Brose crams regular panelists, Danielle, Trev, Jarrod, James and Adam into a clown car as they chat garbage strikes, stand up comedy and late night talk show hosts.

Will Joaquin Phoenix terrifying portrayal of Arthur Fleck be remembered as a King of Comedy? Or something much, much worse? And is Todd Phillips, the guy who made Old School and the Hangover the right person to juggle such a delicate topic?

chatflix No Comments

After much searching and investigating, Brose and Stu tracked down a phone booth and locked themselves inside to chat about Joel Schumacher’s 2002 enclosed space thriller Phone Booth!

An all star cast (Colin Farrell, Kiefer Sutherland, Forest Whitaker, Radha Mitchell and Katie Holmes), a single location and two weeks of shooting: what could go wrong? Listen this week to find out!

Episode 164 The Karate Kid

chatflix No Comments

This week Brose dons his PJs and gets his crane on as he chats with Danielle, Adam and James about the 1984 classic; The Karate Kid.

We chat Ralph Macchio’s machismo, Pat Morita’s clap and William Zabka’s babka. Why is this film so enduring after so many years and did we all realise it’s just a reboot of Rocky (it is even directed by the same person!)

Cobra Kai and the infamous The Karate Kid fan theory get a mention and we propose out own spin off films; The Karate Girlfriend and The Karate Man. Which would you see?

You won’t need to know where your closest exits are because you’ll be cravin’ all the insights these two deliver on this sometimes oft forgotten Wes Craven flick.
