Nov 8, 2020

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, and in Season 2, they're using THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW as the starting point!

This week on EPISODE ZERO they explore the way ROCKY HORROR took its influences from the horror, sci-fi and queer films that preceded it, starting with Jame Whale's brilliant yet often-overlooked THE OLD DARK HOUSE! It's the film that helped introduce many of the horrifying tropes we take for granted today, and it's kooky as hell to boot.

Before he was world-renowned for children's books like MATILDA, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY and THE WITCHES, Roald Dahl was world-renowned for being really, really creepy. That's why CBS gave him a horrifying television series called 'WAY OUT in 1961!

With a cast of future stars and an impressive team of eerie writers - including future IT'S ALIVE and THE STUFF writer/director Larry Cohen! - 'WAY OUT was about as "way out" as it could get in 1961.

But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are about to find out!

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, using STAR WARS as the starting point!

This week on EPISODE ZERO they delve into Joseph Campbell's astounding career and teachings, focusing on THE POWER OF MYTH, a series of interviews about the impact mythic stories have on society, and vice-versa! George Lucas patterned his STAR WARS movies after the works of Joseph Campbell, and in turn, Campbell was one of the intellectuals who canonized STAR WARS as an important work of art.

How does Campbell's work inform STAR WARS, and was he a little too quick to rubber stamp this franchise as the ultimate modern mythos? We'll find out on EPISODE ZERO!
