Episode 3: Gabe Describes European Super Criminals to His Girlfriend, Kristine

Gabe describes the European phenomenon of comic and pulp-based super criminals/villains to his most special guest, Kristine Fisher, who happens to be his significant other (she also knows a lot about silent comedies, but that’s not particularly helpful for her here).

Episode 1: Proto-Slashers, feat. Patrick Ripoll of Tracks of the Damned

Enjoy a prototype podcast about a prototypical film genre as Gabe and special guest Patrick Ripoll talk about proto-slashers. Please excuse our dust as we run through several dozen stalk ‘n stab movies extending back to the very beginning of cinema. You can follow along with our list here:  https://letterboxd.com/gabepowers/list/proto-slashers/ The greatest emphasis is placed on three classics – John Brahm’s Hangover Square (1945), Robert Siodmak’s The Spiral Staircase (1946), and Charles B. Pierce’s The Town that Dreaded Sundown (1976) – as well as three...erm...less than classics – Kent Bateman’s Headless Eyes (1971), Marc B. Ray’s Scream Bloody Murder (1973), and Curtis Hanson’s Sweetkill (aka: The Arousers, 1972).
