SotD!Cast『 13 』Tomb Of Meat
New episodes broadcast live on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/sotdcast
On this week's episode, the guys have not had an awful lot of horror in their lives recently, so talk instead turns first to Chris’ continued quest into all things strategy. A dark prophecy is unveiled regarding a bleak future where throwing rocks at the wall will be the only single-player campaign. We also discuss the weather (as is tradition) as well as fuck-off big fridges (henceforth known as Tombs of Meat) and Calippos (if you can hear this Unilever, we are prepared to talk sponsorship).
Tom then briefly explains the plot for Fear The Walking Dead up to the new Season 3 and why killing his favourite character was simultaneously a very clever and very stupid move. This leads on to discussion of the character development trope and how, when you get an episode fleshing out a side character, it’s kind of like fattening up the pig for slaughter. Remember kids, stay away from development, stay alive.
We also come up with a pitch for the Twister movie (board game, not natural phenomena) and a dozen tag lines – Hollywood needs to call us. We will turn your dollar into an hundred pounds.
This week’s homework was of course, James Wan’s Insidious – a film of two halves that certainly becomes a lot more interesting in the second. Scary Darth Maul tiptoeing through the tulips makes for an interesting yet ultimately underused villain, which is confusing. But the either of ‘The Further’ and the souls destined to forever replay their tragic demises gets a big thumbs up. The real question we’re left asking though is, if Patrick Wilson is now possessed by the Woman in Black, how can he possibly go on to become Chris Pratt’s father? All this and more on Big Empty Haunted Houses With Good Cinematography!
