VPL Shadow People

Shadow People – VINCENT PRICE’S LAUGH

Elbee and Andrew don't just enjoy the occasional spooky movie, they often pursue stories of strange happenings from around the world. Here, a little film called Shadow People serves as this episode's topic...one that covers a phenomenon that may even hit a little close to home.

Happy Holidays, Monster Creeps! So, you may be thinking: Elbee, this is the Christmas episode of VPL. Why in the Peace-on-Earth-and-Goodwill-Towards-Men are you talking about a most-decidedly un-Christmas movie like Crimson Peak? I'll tell you! There is a long-standing...

WDWJW #7: Young Einstein

YOUNG EINSTEIN – WHAT DID WE JUST WATCH?!?

Young Einstein hit the American market in August 1989. After a successful release in Australia, Warner Brothers were banking on a summer sleeper at the very least, and a blockbuster at most. It received neither. The movie was just too weird for US audiences, while also not being weird enough. It's a family film, but also a subversive satire. To a 15-year old who had, a year prior, discovered Monty Python's Flying Circus, Young Einstein was a godsend: it was tame enough to not bother the conservative parents, but biting and weird enough to stimulate this growing boy's mind. In this episode, we find Andrew (the aforementioned growing boy) and Travis Trapp (his first viewing of the film) discussing the film and its merits. Does it hold up? Or is nostalgia a damned liar?
