{Podcast} The Horror Pod Class Episode 105: One Dark Night.

Tyler: Live from the Dr. Henry Armitage Memorial High School AV Room

Welcome to episode 105 of The Horror Pod Class. My name is Tyler and I run Signal Horizon a magazine dedicated to exploring genre fiction in and out of the classroom. 

Orrin: And I’m Orrin Grey, Monster Ambassador at Signal Horizon and the guy who (usually) picks whatever weird-ass movie we’re talking about at a given moment.

Tonight on the Horror Pod Class we are going to spend some time talking about what we have been watching and reading, we will help you find some free genre content on the internet and finally we will spend the remainder of the episode discussing  The VERY TALKY and VERY WALKY 1983 classic (?) One Dark Night  As you might have noticed this season you can check out all of back episodes on Itunes and any other podcatchers and the live version on our Youtube channel!

What are we reading watching or excited about.

Tyler: So much stuff. Finally finished Cursed Films, Also can’t wait to sink my teeth into Blood Quantum and Here is the challenge I am embarking on with my son for Halloween. (From Paramount)

Orrin: Once again, it’s less about what I’m actually reading or watching than about what I’m excited to read, because I just got my copy of John Langan’s latest collection, Children of the Fang, in the mail, which I’ll be digging into as soon as I finish Clown in a Cornfield!

Dark Corners of the Web:

The game Grannie and Grandpa…It is fucking scary. Also my four year old plays it so YMMV

Essential Question: Is One Dark Night a prequel to The Dark Knight…JK how about is One Dark Night more talky or more walky.

As part of an initiation into a club called the Sisters, a young girl must spend the night in a mausoleum.

This is legit the shortest summary we have ever pulled!

Tom McLoughlin wrote and directed from Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives (The Tommy Jarvis Lightening one)

The dude loves his optical lightning effects and, honestly, I am here for it.

They totally used the mausoleum from Phantasm

Meg Tilly and Adam West

The name of the paper is The World of the Occult. I would gladly sign up. 

Original Title: Rest in Peace

Interesting piece on the fonts used for the poster art https://fontsinuse.com/uses/24668/one-dark-night-1982

How about this doozy of a quote “ McLoughlin’s background in mime companies was apparent in the script: it had 80% visuals and 20% was dialogue. As a student in Paris in the late ‘60s’, McLoughlin once visited the catacombs of wall to wall human skeletons – under the city is how the French buried their dead centuries ago. This experience left an indelible mark on his young psyche. Not surprisingly, he envisioned a story entitled Mausoleum, a strong and claustrophobic-sounding word in itself. To research, McLoughlin visited dozens of mausoleums and cemeteries from San Diego to San Francisco. “We would go to the mausoleum and with some early corpse effects, we took pictures and made a slide show to show investors.” Executive producer Thomas Johnson liked the concept and asked McLoughlin and Hawes “would you be ready in three weeks?””

This article has tons of stuff.

What we’re dealing with here, is a man who knew telekenisis and could move things with his mind while he was alive. That same man is now dead. I might have been able to praise the atmosphere and the setting the film, but the entire plot and reason for the entire thing to happen is just so dumb, and things dosen’t really begin to shake before its about 10 minutes left of the movie. I guess that’s a prerequisite that you have never ever seen a dead body before to find this scary, because in a nutshell that’s the only thing One Dark Night has to offer. it’s almost admirable how badly this movie doesn’t want the plot to happen. You know a movie is bad when the best character in it is a toothbrush.

As usual, the thing I love most about this movie is what our anonymous kid at the back of the class hates.

Lay off the toothbrush girl!


Next Week: The Exterminating Angel….its out there for free somewhere.

Have your say
