Did you know that Kuroneko means “Black Cat” in Japanese?

I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays!

We both really enjoyed Kuroneko. In the podcast, you can hear us discuss some of the interesting pieces of this film. Andrew specifically called out the sound design. We also talked about interesting uses of symmetry and juxtaposition throughout.

We watched the Criterion Collection edition of the film.

Next episode we will discuss “Eyes Without A Face.”

Our first time covering Mario Bava on this show! Gothic chiller Black Sunday is this month’s entry in our series on foreign horror films before 1979.


This series has proven to be fairly popular with Andrew. I don’t know if anyone remembers the premise of this show now, 41 episodes and several years in, but originally it was “horror movie fan (Matt) watches movie with horror movie novice (Andrew).” Black Sunday is sort of a throwback to our original premise, in that the non-horror movie fan really didn’t have much to like.

It sort of makes one wonder how much of my affection for Black Sunday comes from it’s place in the canon, so to speak. Although, regardless of why I like it, I really, really do.

Here’s some other great Bava films.

I couldn’t really find much on the topic of class in Bava’s films. I’m certain that I read about it at least once, unless I am thinking of Lucio Fulci. Please shoot me a tweet if you are aware of scholarship on the subject.

Also, episode 40.5 – Godzilla, King of the Monsters!

Obligatory apology – sorry for being a low energy Jeb this episode. I was a tired guy this day. This episode has the greatest opening audio of literally any of our episodes thus far. Also sorry for various pug noises (that’s Frankie) and also the lateness of this episode. This episode snuck in just under the wire.

Next month, we are putting out our “Black Sunday” episode.

The original 1954 film is a truly fantastic movie. Godzilla, of the Monsters, less so. Still entirely watchable, in my opinion, Lot of groans from Andrew though. We watched the Criterion Collection edition, for those keeping score at home.

Andrew and I are hard at work trying to find a time in which to get together and record our episode on Godzilla. If you are looking for a foreign horror movie fix, I might suggest some past episodes? Aside from our last two episodes on House and Nosferatu: the Vampyr, we also did episodes on M (episode 11), the Testament of Dr Mabuse (Episode 10), Vampyr (episode 17), and Suspiria (episode 25).

Otherwise, I figured I’d mention a couple of things that I learned when I went to the Necronomicon, the Weird fiction and Horror festival that takes place about a half hour from where I live, in Providence RI, the home of HP Lovecraft. There was plenty of overlap between the interests of people who listen to this podcast and the people who might attend that festival.

The first panel I went to was the Eldritch Arthouse – the panelists were discussing Suspiria when I walked in, they also mentioned some movies that I definitely want to check out, Stalker and Possession being the big two recommendations that I got. Richard Stanley, the director of Hardware and Dust Devil was on that panel, and I was able to see him present material from his adaptation of the Colour Out of Space, which is in preproduction. It looks wild, like a more serious and frightening version of the Stuart Gordon pictures. Apparently it is actually on track to being made. The art looked really cool and if it manages to be half as good as he wants it to be, it will be amazing.

There were lots of other panels and vendors, but I’ll skip going over haunted New England and Call of Cthulhu panels. If you are looking for recommendations for Providence restaurants, I have a few for you, but you can reach out to me for that stuff. There’s a bunch of ways to contact me there.

I unfortunately had to go home instead of going to the Dunwich Horror Picture Show, but I went two years ago and it was a blast. That particular movie I’m sure will eventually be covered on the podcast.

We’d like to start taking listener questions and comments on the show – if you have a message, you can leave a message for us by calling (508) 817-3408.

Remember, we have Godzilla coming up, so if you have a question relating to that, now would be the time to send it in.

Andrew and Matt discuss the Herzog art house interpretation of both the Stoker tale and the Murnau film.

Jonathan Harker journeys to Transylvania in order to sell a house in bucolic Wismer to a mysterious noblemen. Nightmare after nightmare follows.

Nosferatu the Vampyre came out in 1979 and was directed by Werner Herzog and stars Klaus Kinski. This is a famous pairing, explored by Herzog in My Best Fiend.

We watched the Shout Factory edition of Nosferatu the Vampyre, which, although light on special features, is a great transfer of the film.

Be warned – we are both enjoying a cup of Earl Grey, hot during this episode and there is the occasional tea slurping noise, as well as pug breathing noises throughout. That’s Frankie.

Andrew and Matt discuss the nutty Japanese surrealist haunted house film House. (Andrew loves it)

Seven Japanese schoolgirls travel to an aunt’s house – the aunt, however, turns out to be an undead ghost. The movie’s bizarre editing choices and camera tricks make it a real trip to observe. It has legitimately thematic depth that other movies like this sometimes lack, touching briefly on the effect of WWII on the Japanese.

Somehow this turned into our longest episode ever. We talk about information found in The House wikipedia article a lot. Be warned — we also discuss comics for a good 15 minutes in the middle of this episode.

We watched the fabulous Criterion Collection version of House.

The campy, compact classic really rubbed Andrew the wrong way. Can’t really say why.


This film was directed by William Castle, and stars Vincent Price as Frederick Loren and Carol Ohmart as Annabelle Loren

The blind caretaker, one of a series of red herrings built into the plot of the House on Haunted Hill, was Andrew’s favorite part. Andrew found the film’s 96% on Rotten Tomatoes to be absurd. For more of Andrew’s wildly unfounded opinions, please consult our podcast episode.

The IMDB page for House on Haunted Hill

The Wikipedia page for the House on Haunted Hill

I found this GIF here, on this double feature comparison of House on Haunted Hill and it’s 1999 remake.

Coming up on the Podcast

Our next episode will be the final film of our Vincent Price series. I am debating whether or not to watch House of Wax or Tomb of Ligeia.

We’re also working on the next year or so of episode ideas right now. We are going to be exploring foreign horror movies from before the 1980’s. Probably no Giallo or Zombie movies, because I think those deserve their own series.

Got any suggestions? Reach out to us at the contact info below.
