UNH 66: Videodrome


Becky and Mark took a turn in the VIDEODROME this week, where they discussed recent watches. These included: questioning the mythology of the series, but still declaring endless love for HIGHLANDER III: THE MAGICIAN; rating the docudrama miniseries LORE, based on the popular folklore podcast by Aaron Mehnke; commenting on the rules and regulations of SCREAM 1, 2, and 3; situating THE DUNWICH HORROR between classic and modern examples of the genre; talking briefly about MINDHUNTER, the behavioural science television show based on the book by John Douglas; musings that the pre-code ISLAND OF LOST SOULS would make an excellent double feature with THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME; discussing the 60s television series AQUARIUS, which weaves a fictional story around historical events and characters, including Charles Manson and his ‘family’; thoughts on the first half of the STAR TREK: DISCOVERY television series; and Mark rounding things off with TMI about problematic patriarchy in DIRTY WEEKEND.

UNH 63: IT vs. IT vs. IT

Kingology and the United Nations of Horror come together to present a very special episode. It’s a good old-fashioned Mexican standoff—that’s right, it’s Stephen King’s IT (the original book) vs. IT (1990’s miniseries) vs. IT (2017 film)! First off, Mark Cain and Rebecca Booth will discuss the book. Then Lucard Dragomir joins in as we compare both the miniseries and the new 2017 film.

Mentions made of a great article by Erin Miskell about ‘that scene’ from IT. Yes, that scene. You can find the article here: Virgin Sacrifice: It, Bev and the Infamous Sewer Scene by Erin Miskell.

And remember, you’ll float too!
