Mar 26, 2019

‘Walter has a clear mind. One day something will enter it, feel lonely … and leave again.’ The quote, of course, is referring to Walter Paisley, the character that eventually became the alter ego of the late, great Dick Miller. Join this episode’s Grue Crew - Chad Hunt, Whitney Collazo, Joseph Perry, and Jeff Mohr - as they tour the Roger Corman/Dick Miller collaboration on display in the art gallery known as A Bucket of Blood.

Decades of Horror: The Classic Era
Episode 53 – A Bucket of Blood (1959)

Synopsis:
A dim-witted busboy finds acclaim as an artist for a plaster-covered dead cat that is mistaken as a skillful statuette. The desire for more praise soon leads to an increasingly deadly series of works.


- IMDb

 

When news of Dick Miller’s death on 30 January 2019 reached the Decades of Horror: The Classic Era Grue Crew, they knew one of their next films had to be A Bucket of Blood, Roger Corman’s first attempt at dark comedy and one of Dick Miller’s few starring roles.

Does it go without saying that they all love A Bucket of Blood and Dick Miller’s performance? Whitney is interested in Walter’s need to belong which also fuels his decline. As he receives more and more recognition for his “art,” he is driven to commit more and more heinous murders. Roger Corman gave many filmmakers their start and Chad pays tribute to Corman’s legacy in that regard. He also brings up Dick Miller’s appearance’s in Joe Dante’s films. Joseph talks of how seeing Dick Miller in a film always brings a smile to his face. He also points out that Bert Convy’s main legacy is as a gameshow host. Jeff talks about some of writer Charles Griffith’s other screenplays and recommends the documentary on Dick Miller, That Guy Dick Miller (2014). All-in-all, your Grue Crew is impressed with what Roger Corman accomplished on a typically low budget and with Dick Miller’s performance. This one is highly recommended!

The Decades of Horror: The Classic Era Grue Crew plan to release a new episode every other week. Hey, where else will you hear podcasts on films ranging from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) to The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) to Maneater of Hydra (1967)? The next episode in our very flexible schedule will be Santo contra los zombies, aka Santo vs. the Zombies (1962).

Please send us feedback on the films we cover, ideas for future films, or the podcast itself. After all, without you, we’re just four whack-a-doodles talking about the films we love. Send us an email at feedback@gruesomemagazine.com or leave us a message, a review, or a comment at GruesomeMagazine.com, iTunes, the Gruesome Magazine Horror News Radio Facebook group or your friendly neighborhood podcast aggregator.

To each of you from each of us, “Thank you so much for listening!”

Mar 20, 2019

"If it were in your power, would you sacrifice your wife, your children for immortality? This is the story of a man who did!" The lesson? You have to keep your priorities straight. Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr - as they dive into the deep, dark hole where dwells The Asphyx.

Decades of Horror 1970s
Episode 92 – The Asphyx (1972)

Synopsis:
English country squire Sir Hugo Cunningham searches for immortality by literally 'bottling up' the Spirit of the Dead, or Asphyx.

- IMDb

 

  • Director: Peter Newbrook
  • Writers:
    • Brian Comport
    • (story by) Christina Beers, Laurence Beers
  • Cinematographer: Freddie Young
  • Featured Cast:

The Decades of Horror 1970s Grue Crew unanimously expressed the following opinions regarding The Asphyx: 1) It’s based on a great premise; 2) Its reach exceeds its grasp; 3) The Asphyx is ripe … for a remake; 4) There has to be a better title! They had a bit of juvenile fun with that title. Chad couldn’t stop giggling while watching the movie and Jeff got caught up by it during the podcast.

The Asphyx is Peter Newbrook’s sole output as a director but Bill points out Newbrook’s experience as a camera operator on renowned films such as The Bridge On the River Kwai (1957) and Lawrence of Arabia (1962). In recalling the story, Jeff and Bill trade ridiculously complex and failure-prone methods devised to expose the Asphyx and Doc and Chad join in.

Your Grue Crew gives The Asphyx an enthusiastic recommendation. Despite some of the ridiculous and laughable choices made by the filmmakers, The Asphyx is an entertaining film with good acting from the four leads - Robert Stephens, Robert Powell, Jane Lapotaire, and the guinea pig - as well as excellent cinematography by Freddie Young. The Asphyx was available on Shudder when this episode was recorded but has since been taken down. It is currently available VOD on Amazon and as a Kino Lorber Blu ray.

We want to hear from you – the coolest, grooviest fans: leave us a message or leave a comment on the site or email the Decades of Horror 1970s podcast hosts at docrotten@decadesofhorror.com.
