80’s Horror Double Feature “The Hunger” and “Cat People” with special guest James Hancock episode 18|14

Tonight’s show is the first in a series we are calling ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’.  The series focuses on 1980’s Horror movies that have either been forgotten, marginalized, or at a minimum have been left lingering in cult status.

Each episode will focus on two films, staying true to the 80’s ‘double feature’ that, sadly, has been thrown on the heep of awesome, forgotten movie experiences, which include the video store… rip, and the drive-in theater… god rest it’s soul.

Tonight’s episode we’ll be chatting with James Hancock, that mad movie genius behind one of my favorite online podcasts ‘Wrong Reel’ (james has other worthy endeavors that I have provided links to below)

The films we will be discussing are two of the ‘sexiest’ horror movies from the 80’s: Tony Scott’s ‘The Hunger’ from 1983 and Paul Schrader’s 1982 film ‘Cat People’
