[F*EAR CANDY] Podcast Roundup: ’80s ALL OVER Takes On The Summer Of ’81 And More

Looking for something to listen to this weekend? Allow DAILY GRINDHOUSE to point you in the right direction to all the best film and genre related podcasts on the dial.

The SATURDAY NIGHT MOVIE SLEEPOVERS guys have two terrific episodes that reveal what a difference ten years can make. The latest episodes spotlight 1997’s THE FIFTH ELEMENT and 1987’s OVER THE TOP. Co-host J. Blake also appears on F THIS MOVIE! Chatting with host Patrick Bromley about Stephen King’s werewolf flick, SLIVER BULLET as well as the WRONG REEL discussing the films of John Carpenter.

A fast favorite of the GRINDHOUSE gang is ‘80s ALL OVER featuring Drew McWeeny and Scott Weinberg reviewing every theatrical release of the ‘80s one month at a time. “June 1981” and “July 1981” will be of particular interest to film fans as the guys dive into the massive RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, the blockbuster sequel SUPERMAN II, and John Carpenter’s ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. McWeeny and Weinberg also dive into WOLFEN, ARTHUR, DEMONOIDBLOW OUT, CLASH OF THE TITANS, and Roger Moore as James Bond in FOR YOUR EYES ONLY.

Any DAILY GRINDHOUSE reader should already be listening to POST MORTEM WITH MICK GARRIS. The most recent episode features an interview with Hannibal and American Gods producer, Bryan Fuller. Fuller discusses his career as well as being a fan of EVIL DEAD 2: DEAD BY DAWN and the slick, horror-comedy, APRIL FOOLS DAY. Past standouts include talks with Don Coscarelli, Eli Roth, Walter Hill, and a terrifically fun episode featuring both John Landis and Joe Dante discussing politics.

THE BRET EASTON ELLIS PODCAST has been on break since the beginning of the month, but cinephiles should certainly check out his shows from the past month. Ellis’ interview with Walter Hill goes in depth on the director’s “rock ‘n’ roll fable” STREETS OF FIRE as well as 1979’s ALIEN and Andrew McCarthy’s appearance features a very amusing story about the actor standing up to bully, Vincent D’Onofrio. The author also chats with POST MORTEM host Mick Garris about their shared disinterest in Stanley Kubrick’s THE SHINING and his chat with critic Owen Gleiberman about fan boy culture and the modern era of film criticisms is a must listen for film writers and those who are simply film lovers.

Adjust your dials accordingly.
