Sometimes, we tell ourselves stories to escape the cruelty of the real world. But what happens when the stories take over and we can no longer tell the difference between what's real and what's our own mind playing tricks on us? The Dogs cover escapism through storytelling, dissociation, and dissociative identity disorder as seen in these films.

HEREDITARY / PET SEMETARY (1989): Grief and Belief

HEREDITARY / PET SEMETARY (1989): Grief and Belief

May 5, 2022

There’s no wrong way to grieve, but there certainly is an unhealthy way. Say… calling on the power of demons/unknown cosmic forces to bring the dead back to life only to have them go on a murder spree. That’s pretty unhealthy, don’t you think?

The Cadaver Dogs take a trip to the afterlife in this episode as they walk through the many examples of grief in two horror film staples. First up is the original Ari Aster movie HEREDITARY (starring Toni Colette, Gabriel Byrne, Milly Shapiro, Alex Wolff, and indie film bae Ann Dowd.) We tackle the origins of the demon Paimon, voyeurism through filmmaking, misconceived spiritualism, and the concept of tragedy. Then, we take a not so big leap to Mary Lambert’s PET SEMETARY (1989) adapted from Stephen King’s novel. The dogs offer a fresh perspective on industrialism, gender representation of yore, Native American burial ground tropes, and just how much parents royally f*** up. Oh, and nominate Toni Collette, you cowards.

History has shown us that when humans mourn a loved one, they tend to turn to the paranormal to find hope in an after life. And while there's no right or wrong way to grieve, there's certainly an unhealthy way... The Dogs will explore the representations of grief in the hit horror film Hereditary and the original Stephen King adaptation of Pet Semetary. And yes, we all agree that Toni Collette should have gotten that Oscar.

PLAN 9 / BIRDEMIC: Aliens and Avians

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)

Humans the worst virus! Whether it's bringing us into nuclear war due to their narcissistic power-hungry attitudes or causing the end of the planet through greed and global warming, humans are here to destroy! The Dogs will cover the classic 1950s horror theme: the A-bomb through the lens of legend Edward D. Wood Jr's PLAN 9 FROM OUTERSPACE (starring Bela Lugosi and Vampira). Then, we make Al Gore proud by covering BIRDEMIC - the most talked about film at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010.

BLACK ROSES / WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS: Metalsploitation

BLACK ROSES / WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS: Metalsploitation

March 17, 2022

The 80s were more than just sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll… but let’s be honest, it was mostly that.. Rob and Devin are joined by guest Chris Guzzo (Pod From the Crypt) to talk metal-sploitation horror. (David is off directing a horror movie - send him some love!)

In this episode, we dive into how both these films embrace the anti-establishment principle of horror movies and metal music. For BLACK ROSES, a Troma release, we discuss generational hypocrisy and the music censorship movement led by Tipper Gore - as well as the killer special effects and creature design. For WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS, starring Alexandra Daddario,Johnny Knoxville, and Taylor Swift’s brother, we discuss the satanic panic, TV evangelists, and rebelling against “the man”. We also touch on the use of nudity in these films… quite a bit. (Also, congratulate us! We did an 80s episode without mentioning Reagan for once!)

Metal music is making our children murderers! Horror movies and heavy metal found a way to fight back against parental censorship in the 1980s. With inspiration from the satanic panic and 80s counter culture, metalsploitation movies were created. Next week, the Cadaver Dogs take analyze two films that hit this topic dead on. Plus, a special guest!

NIGHTCRAWLER / THE NIGHT FLIER: Tabloids of Terror

NIGHTCRAWLER / THE NIGHT FLIER: Tabloids of Terror

March 4, 2022

“Never believe what you publish, and never publish what you believe.” These are the words of wisdom echoed by tabloid journalists everywhere… and maybe even by “legitimate” reporters? In an age where fake news persists, by what skewered code does the media abide? What lines will journalists cross, and who might they hurt in the process?

We’re talking bloodsuckers, airplanes, and the National Inquirer in our first movie THE NIGHT FLIER (1997), a Stephen King adaptation in which Miguel Ferrer finds himself hot on the trail of a serial killer / vampire pilot. Then we jump ahead to Dan Gilroy’s Oscar-nominated NIGHTCRAWLER (2014), where Jake Gyllenhaal plays a sociopath keenly manipulating the staff of a failing local news network, also starring Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed, and Bill Paxton.

Up Next: WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS (2019) / BLACK ROSES (1988)
