Episode 9--Remakes and Unmakes
This week, Johnny Zombie and Dillon discuss remakes, unmakes, and never-makes. We list the films we'd like to see remade, unmade, and never made. There is such a thing as a good remake, though it is hard to find. We give some examples of remakes gone right, and gone wrong. We also offer our thoughts on films that should never have existed in the first place. The episode is introduced by our new sponser Trader Zombies. We also discuss our recent revists to old sci-fi series and anime (more often then not, they coincide).
The discussion recorded for this episode is largely hypothetical. I invite all listeners to give examples of remakes--both good and bad. I also want to hear your thoughts on films that should never be.
As always, you can listen to the carnage here, or at Archive.org You can also download us from our gracious host at Archive.org (see link below the player).
