Episode 29--Peter Cushing (Part One)

Hello my lovely deviants!

This week, I review the Hammer Frankenstein films, starring Peter Cushing!

Cushing is one of the seminal faces of horror. He acted in numerous films in the genre--for both Hammer, Amicus, and other British studios at the time. He is also familiar to fans of Star Wars for his turn as Grand Moff Tarkin, the only man who could control Vader's murderous impulses. Cushing played some of the best-known filmic and literary characters of all time. He is the only actor to have played all of the following: Dr. Abraham Van Helsing, Baron Frankenstein, Sherlock Holmes, and Dr. Who. He often co-starred with his friend, and colleage, Sir. Christopher Lee--usually in an adverserial role. The two would go on to co-star in over twenty films together!

This week's episode is a starting point for the work of this lovely human being, and phenominal actor.

Episode 28: 28 Days Later...

It's the rage...VIRUS! This week, on The Fly Paper Dungeon.

I provide a feature-length commentary to Danny Boyle's post-apocalyptic nightmare. 28 Days Later is often credited with reviving the zombie sub-genre, and rightly so. Although many may consider the "rage infected" to not be zombies. One thing is certain, this film did breath new life into a classic movie monster. It also revitalized the "Man wakes up, and the world has gone to hell," concept, as written about in such novels as Shelley's The Last Man, Wyndham's Day of the Triffids, and Matheson's I Am Legend.

This film is also an homage to such genre favorites as Night of The Living Dead, The Last Man on Earth, The Omega Man, Romero's original version of The Crazies.

Sit back, strap on your biohazard suit, and get ready for the plague!
