It’s our 400th episode of Spoilerpiece Theatre, so we’ve cooked up something extra special for you, Spoilerpeeps! After some thank yous and very special announcements (hello Spoilerpiece merch), original Spoilerpiece co-host Kris Jenson stops by (16:00) to talk about Fred Zinnemann’s 1952 Western, HIGH NOON from the AFI Top 100 list! Then we have previous guests and friends of the show stop by to talk about spoilers in some of their favorite films. We chat with Max Covill from It’s the Pictures (49:03), Andy Crump (56:32), Dede Crimmins (65:48), Charlie Nash from Almost Major (1:12:31), J.C. from Screen Fix (1:21:24), Kristen Halbert (1:34:44), and The Lady-Wan from ScreenRun (1:49:15). And if that wasn’t enough, this week’s Patreon bonus audio, where we talk about Robin Hardy’s 1973 horror film THE WICKER MAN is available for everyone to hear!
Two-thirds of the Spoilerpiece Theatre podcast attended the 12-hour horror movie marathon at the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, Mass., over the weekend. The movies, in the order shown, were:
1. Frankenstein (1931);
2. The Lost Boys;
3. Evil Dead II;
4. Eaten Alive (shown under the title “Starlight Slaughter,” and one of the worst movies we’ve ever seen);
6: The Incredible Melting Man (in which a man melts for 84 minutes, and his name, “Steve,” is uttered approximately 450 times);
7. The Wicker Man.
It was a great time, and our good friend and fellow film critic Sam Cohen tweeted the following afterward:
Well said, sir.
