Like Making Contact, our film for this episode, XTRO, desperately wants to be a Speilberg movie. It doesn’t succeed in being that, but it is presented in marketing as a sort of horror response to Close encounters of the Third Kind & even more so, E.T. the Extraterrestrial.
My guest on this show is writer Jay Alary , who just so happened to have a special edition copy of Xtro just laying around his flat, brand new and unwatched. So I put him to the task, and this episode is the result.
Please join us for our discussion as we dig into, not only the maddening “and then…” nature of this film, the disturbing horror, but accents too! Provided here, is a copy of the film for you to watch. Enjoy!
