The Corpse Club co-hosts enjoy a Joe Dante double feature on a new episode of Daily Dead's podcast!
From Piranha to Gremlins to Small Soldiers and beyond, filmmaker Joe Dante is the creative force behind some of the most memorable moments in cinematic history when it comes to horror and comedy, and on this episode of Daily Dead's podcast, the Corpse Club team celebrates two of the director's most beloved movies: 1981's The Howling and 1989's The ’Burbs.
Listen as Heather Wixson, Scott Drebit, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James reflect on the hairy horrors (bolstered by Rob Bottin's haunting practical effects), creepy encounters, and psychological subtext of the werewolf-infested Colony in The Howling. Then, hop in the station wagon as the Corpse Club co-hosts cruise through suburbia to observe the eerie everyday life in the cul-de-sac of Mayfield Place, as they discuss The ’Burbs' stellar supporting cast, deleted scenes, and slapstick humor. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy a Joe Dante double feature on a new episode of Daily Dead's official podcast... and don't be afraid to listen with your neighbors!
