Cadaver Dogs

PLAN 9 / BIRDEMIC: Aliens and Avians

March 31, 2022

In 1938, Orson Welles directed and narrated an adaptation of “War of the Worlds” for a radio broadcast. However, listeners did not understand what they were hearing, and believed aliens were actually attacking! Panic ensued. For this very special episode of Cadaver Dogs Pod, we will be talking about something else entirely.

From Ed Wood to James Nguyen, it’s time we dig into the deep social and economic commentaries of PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1957) and BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR (2010). Though we will of course explain why the filmmaking in these works is so effective, we will primarily be exploring the heavy topics of nuclear war, climate change, and the terrifying existential question: What if humanity IS the virus?

Up Next: HEREDITARY (2018) / PET SEMATARY (1989)
