AUDITION (1999, dir. Takashi Miike)

What's your ideal of the perfect woman? How bout one that cuts out your tongue? Or one that isn't even really alive but a reanimated corpse? These are the punishments that befall the protagonists in next week's episode. We'll be talking male gaze, the dangers of a narrow perspective, and how these movies successfully walk a thin line between feminism and misogyny.

SAINT MAUD / HOUR OF THE WOLF: Good Damage

SAINT MAUD / HOUR OF THE WOLF: Good Damage

January 6, 2022

Praise films and silence the voice(s) speaking inside your head for the very first Cadaver Dogs episode of the New Year!  Devin, David and Rob are getting spiritual with last year's SAINT MAUD, the first feature by promising new filmmaker Rose Glass. The film follows a young medical aid who believe she has direct communication with God himself, and it is her duty to share this gift. What's better than voices in one person's head you ask, why it's a union of voices born of a marriage gone awry upon an isolated island. In Ingmar Burgman's HOUR OF THE WOLF, we attempt to understand something about this strange horror story by the film master.  

Stick around horror hounds while we discuss religion, the value of pain, and whole host of interpretations in these metaphor lanced insanity flicks.

Minisode: Creepiest Kids w/ Superhost’s Brandon Christensen

December 21, 2021

“They’re he-e-e-e-ere!!” Why is it that every possible line is a lot scarier when uttered by a child? There’s no one on this planet who was not a kid at some point, and most kiddos are perfectly innocent bundles of joy. And yet… Rob and David team up with guest star Brandon Christensen, writer/director of Shudder exclusive SUPERHOST, to countdown their top 3 children of horror!

AMERICAN PSYCHO / BETTER WATCH OUT: X-Mas Psycho Special!

AMERICAN PSYCHO / BETTER WATCH OUT: X-Mas Psycho Special!

December 16, 2021

Jingle Bells! Twilight smells! Brundle-Fly laid an egg! Patrick Bateman killed his date, and Luke Lerner got away!

’Tis the season, and whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or none of the above, the Cadaver Dogs are here for this final episode of the year to talk about psychopaths. (What’d you expect? Family and togetherness?) Psychopathy is a real illness, but what does it mean when someone lacks empathy? Does this excuse the terrible behavior of the men in these movies? Or are they just expressing their fragile toxic masculinity, no different from any other misogynist?

In Mary Harron’s AMERICAN PSYCHO (2000), a brilliantly crazed Christian Bale guides us through these questions and more. We discuss serial killers, privilege, homophobia, and of course author Bret Easton Ellis, upon whose novel the film is based. But perhaps it’s BETTER WATCH OUT (2016) where we find a more realistic example of budding psychopathy, forcing us to turn to our textbooks to check if it’s even possible to diagnose a literal child. Both men impose their will upon the women in their lives, treating them (and really everyone) as mere objects to be owned. Do they even know it’s Christmas??

THE INVISIBLE MAN / THE TINGLER: Mad Scientists

THE INVISIBLE MAN / THE TINGLER: Mad Scientists

December 2, 2021

Get your test tubes, beakers, and radioactive chemicals ready, because this week we’re talking about ‘30s and ‘50s science-fiction! Einstein had only just published his theory of relativity, the atom was in the process of being split, and outer space had yet to be explored. Science was scary then, for it was unknown what dangers we’d uncover. Even looking back now, the question remains: Did we make a mistake? Should we continue to venture into infinity, or else when does science go too far?

In Vincent Price-starring THE TINGLER (1959), directed by the master of gimmicks William Castle, a coroner dares to push ethical boundaries as he uncovers a spine-crushing bug that lives inside all of us and feeds on our fear. Then the Dogs jumps back to Frankenstein director James Whale’s THE INVISIBLE MAN (1933) -- the one with Claude Rains (no offense to Elisabeth Moss) -- where an insane physicist wields his newfound superpower to terrorize humanity in a maddening crime spree of havoc.

Up Next: AMERICAN PSYCHO (2000) / BETTER WATCH OUT (2016)

Announcing next week's films: 

THE TINGLER (1959, dir. William Castle)

THE INVISIBLE MAN (1933, dir. James Whale)

 

 

The mad scientist trope has been done again and again over horror history. (Starting, of course, with Mary Shelley's Frankenstein but then seen in favorites such as: Re-Animator, The Fly, Human Centipede...) But what makes this trope worth revisiting? We'll be looking back at these classic movies to see how the eras influenced changes in the trope and questioned the ethics of science. That's next Thursday on Cadaver Dogs.
