Episode 13: STANLEY DOES IT ALL with Joe Dator from The New Yorker and cinephile Megan Dooley

Joe and Megan converse with me about conversations, we neurologically probe the smell of toast, and we are treated to a ditty by Scatman Crothers.

 

An interview from 1980 with Mick Garris. Scatman sings at about 3:00.

Scatman and Redd Foxx on Sandford and Son in 1975

The coin toss scene in No Country for Old Men(2007), directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, with Javier Bardem and Gene Jones

Orson Welles and James Cotton in The Third Man (1949), directed by Carol Reed.

John Huston and Jack Nicholson in Roman Polanski’s Chinatown (1974)

Toni Collette and Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense (1999), directed by M. Night Shyamalan. The scene really begins (brilliantly) about a minute before this, with Haley’s character telling his mom about a ghost outside the car window. (If anyone has the whole clip, please let me know!)

Martin Landau and Sam Waterson in Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989)

Lots of great conversation scenes in Alex Cox’s Repo Man (1984), here with Emilio Estevez and Fox Harris.

Episode 11: HORROR, FOOD, & THE HORROR OF FOOD with John B. Cribbs from The Pink Smoke cinephile website

Episode 11: HORROR, FOOD, & THE HORROR OF FOOD with John B. Cribbs from The Pink Smoke cinephile website

John Cribbs from The Pink Smoke talks about The Shining in the context of horror, and Kubrick in the context of food.

 

 

Trailer for Scalps (1983)

 

Roald Dahl’s Lamb to the Slaughter, originally a short story and also adapted and directed by Alfred Hitchcock for Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

 

The scene that almost got John Cribbs thrown out of a movie theater. “How’d you like some ice cream, Frodo?”

Trailer for The Sentinel (1977)

 

Trailer for The Blackcoat’s Daughter (2017)

 

Trailer for Toshio Matsumoto’s Funeral Parade of Roses (1969), which influenced A Clockwork Orange.

 

This is low quality but a prime example of the creepiness of Federico Fellini’s Giulietta degli Spiriti (Juliette of the Spirits) (1965). [NB: On the podcast I mistakenly call it Juliette of the Spring] Bonus: Twins! I suggested this and other Fellini films that contain creepiness were an influence on The Shining, but heck, let’s throw in Rosemary’s Baby, The Exorcist and most of David Lynch’s stuff as touched by Fellini. WARNING: Super-scary.
