Episode 169: Reanimated VI | TRAIN TO BUSAN

train_to_busan_reanimatedb3ziz.png

We've already covered fast-moving infected for the Reanimated series, but this time they can actually be defined as zombies in Train to Busan. This Korean blockbuster from 2016 passed by both of us when it released, so we get to experience this one for the first time. We talk about the rules of the infection in the film, the comedy and emotional elements, the naivety of its characters, zombie effects, and a whole lot more! We're also talking Decadent Brewing's Apple Cinnamon Doughnut IPA.

Episode 168: Reanimated V | RE-ANIMATOR

re-animator_reanimateda1klq.png

We finally tackle the namesake of our Reanimated series as we take a look at Re-Animator, the 1985 horror black comedy from Stuart Gordon that took H.P. Lovecraft's original idea and gorified it up. We talk about the history of Lovecraft's works, the comedy elements that work in the film, the depths of scientific madness, Barbara Crampton (!!!), and of course the special effects. We're also drinking Contra Brewing's Deerslayer Blonde Ale!

Episode 167: Reanimated IV | 28 DAYS LATER

28_days_later_reanimated83onq.png

This time, we're talking things that aren't quite reanimated; in 28 Days Later, the film borrows a lot from zombie films but technically its threat aren't zombies but rage-infected humans. We discuss the nuances of that decision, what inspirations the film has and what it also inspired, the effect of the early-00s filmmaking techniques, and a whole lot more. We're also drinking Mean Max Brew Works' Strawberry Creamsicle Ale.

Episode 166: Reanimated III | RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD

return_of_the_living_dead_reanimated7ed2o.png

Our zombie film coverage continues on with Reanimated Part III featuring Return of the Living Dead. Something of a parody of the zombie genre, Return of the Living Dead features an almost metacritical look at zombies while also redefining the genre with its undead's insistence on eating brains. We talk about the gore, the punks!, the great performance from Clu Gulager, and a lot more!

Oh yeah, we're drinking Brown's Brewing Company's #VOTE, a sensible choice for National Voter Registration Day. Make sure you vote, people.

Episode 165: Reanimated II | ZOMBIE

zombie_reanimated82ayk.png

Continuing our Halloween Reanimated series, we take a look at Lucio Fulci's Zombie, another one of the zombie genre's defining films. And we watched it using Blue Underground's 4K UHD release, so you know we were able to appreciate every facet of its imagery. We talk about the famous scenes - eye-gouging, shark-fighting - as well as break down the influences to the film, its gore, pacing and plotting, and a whole lot more! Horror aficionados will be horrified at Martin's rating and never listen to us again.

We've also got Zero Gravity's Oktoberfest and Genesee Brewing's Dry-Hopped Cream Ale on the show.

We're back! We're kicking off our Halloween season with Reanimated, a series of films focusing on zombies and/or close relations to zombies, and the first in that series is Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead! We're talking the storyline, the fast-moving zombies, Ty Burrell in a non-Phil Dunphy roll, the relation to Land of the Dead, and more! Also, we have Founders' Oktoberfest on the show.

Episode 163: St. Patty’s Day Special | LEPRECHAUN IN THE HOOD

lep_in_the_hood_bbr.png

It's another St. Patrick's Day and that means another Blood and Black Rum Podcast episode on the Leprechaun series. This time we're up to Leprechaun 5: Leprechaun in the Hood. Ryne was sort of dreading this episode having seen the film before, and we actually struggle with what to talk about about this truly bad movie. However, we do manage to conjure up an hour of discussion about the song "Lep in the Hood," the blaxploitation references, Ice-T doing what Ice-T does best, and more!

We're also drinking Goose Island's Lost Palate IPA on this show.

Episode 162: PARASITE

PARASITE_bbr.png

We've been talking about doing this episode and we finally got to it - Parasite, the Best Picture winner from director/writer Bong Joon-Ho about rich and poor, upper and lower class, and everything in between. This is a complex film from its story to cinematography, and we try to break down our favorite elements from it as much as possible. There's a lot to dissect, so it's best to watch the film and then listen to our show right after.

Episode 161: Valentine’s Day Special | VALENTINE

valentine_bbr.png

We wanted to make sure we tackled Valentine's Day with a special episode, and since we've already done My Bloody Valentine we decided the next best thing is 2001's Valentine, a slasher film that utilizes the classic holiday themes of '80s horror films with a lot of homage to those movies. We talk about the killer, the gore, the red herrings, and a whole lot more in this special romantic episode of the podcast. We've also got Dogfish Head's American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA on the show!

Episode 160: CHILD’S PLAY (2019)

childs_play_2019_bbr.png

We said we'd do the 2019 Child's Play at some point after we were unable to cover it during its release due to the theater's projector issues, and here we are! Only a few months late. However, we were particularly surprised by this reimagining of Chucky the killer doll, who is transformed into an uncanny valley-style smartbot rather than a voodoo serial killer. While we admit the themes are sort of on-the-nose, this Child's Play is decidedly entertaining and, for the most part, just a lot of fun.

We're also drinking Stillwater Artisanal's Shoegaze farmhouse-style pale ale!
