My Bloody Valentine may be a slasher movie where a miner delivers candy-heart boxes with real human hearts in them, but Sarah & Adam discover that the film is more interested in the isolation and disappointment of leaving and returning to your hometown. Also, the joys of gore, yelling at Siskel & Ebert, MBV’s now-forgotten 3-D remake, and the best end credits songs featured in slasher films. Oh, and we managed to get through the whole podcast without referencing Loveless. Until now. Oops.
Note: for this episode, your horrible and humble hosts watched the uncut version of My Bloody Valentine that was rediscovered and released in 2009, not the R-rated cut that had been the only version available in theatres and home video prior to the 2009 DVD.
Sarah & Adam’s slasher end credits song playlist:
Paul Zaza and Paul McDermott’s “The Ballad of Harry Warden” from My Bloody Valentine.
Frank Vinci’s “Just What I’ve Been Looking For (Angela’s Theme)” from Sleepaway Camp.
A Nightmare On Elm Street 5’s “Are You Ready For Freddy” by The Fat Boys (feat. Robert Englund).
A Nightmare On Elm Street 4’s “(Runnin’ From This) Nightmare” by Tuesday Knight.
213’s “Nightmare” from A Nightmare On Elm Street.
“Lobster pot syndrome” must be an extremely local Newfoundland thing because Google turns only up results about Japan and heart disease. According to Wikipedia (source of all sea fauna facts), Adam is referring to Crab Mentality.
