    12/08/2007

    Discussion of the Scream trilogy can be found here.Show Synopsis:Scream is a 1996 smart satire of the horror film genre, directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson. The film revitalized the slasher film genre in the mid 1990’s, similar to what Halloween (1978) did for the 1970s, by using a standard concept (teens being brutally killed off being one example) with a tongue-in-cheek approach that successfully combined straightforward scares with dialogue that satirized slasher film conventions. There were two sequels which did fairly well with critics and fans alike.The song of the night, “I Want To Hear What You Have Got To Say” by one of my favorite bands, The Subways was provided tonight from the PodShow Podsafe Music Network. Check it out at music.podshow.com.The next podcast will discuss Stephen King's novel The Cell and Zombies.
