THE INNOCENTS and THE AUTOMAT on Episode #409

A little blond girl in a yellow jacket looks frightened in the Norwegian movie The Innocents.The pandemic ain’t over folks. Dave has COVID and it sucks but he does his best to manage it in this week’s episode. Megan’s on vacation again, so he and Evan tackle two movies. First up is Lisa Hurwitz’s documentary THE AUTOMAT (3:26), a short, but interesting chronicle of the once-popular restaurant chain in New York City and Philadelphia that offered fresh-cooked meals in a commissary-style eatery. Next, they discuss Eskil Vogt’s disturbing horror film THE INNOCENTS (19:07), which is about a group of children who develop dark powers that they wield against each other and the adults around them. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, Evan and Dave talk about Elaine May’s 1976 crime drama MIKEY AND NICKY, starring Peter Falk and John Cassavetes!

Jamie Lee Curtis goes into full in survivalist mode David Gordon Green’s very entertaining HALLOWEEN.

This week, Sean Burns returns to the Spoilerpiece guest chair! First up, Evan continues his adventure through film classics with ROSEMARY’S BABY (3:25) and THE STEPFORD WIVES (8:09) — both coincidentally based on Ira Levin novels. Then it’s on to HALLOWEEN (11:10)! Sean has been working his way through many of the series entries ahead of the new film by David Gordon Green (!!), so we pick his brain about what the hell that was all about before zeroing in on the surprisingly effective entry that is worthy of its title.
