Cinema Eclectica 213 – Throat Singing Of Terror!

Cinema Eclectica 213 – Throat Singing Of Terror!

Folk horror comes to the multiplexes this week with Ari Aster’s “Midsommar”, set in a Swedish pagan commune. Aster’s own preferred human sacrifice ritual involves dividing podcasters in half as the try to figure out how well his movies work, so what did Graham and Aidan think of this one?

Off the Shelf, meanwhile, sees Graham embarking on a top-secret mission to review Eureka’s WWII comedy-drama “The Cockleshell Heroes”, while Aidan logs on for Arrow’s reissue of Olivier Assayas’s early-00s online grot thriller “Demonlover”. Does it still have the power to sink its tentacles into audiences?

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.
