6. Deathdream (1972).

Sarah and Adam relive their memories of Vietnam war movies as they discuss Bob Clark’s Deathdream, a movie that qualifies as Canadian by the thinnest of definitions. Despite this, there’s a lot of Canadian stuff to discuss, like mistaken Canadian identity, Bob Clark’s dealings with Canada, Canada’s role in the Vietnam war, and one cast member’s appearance on SCTV.

Note: Deathdream is known under a number of alternate titles, the most common being Dead Of Night (though it’s one of several movies with this title) and The Night Andy Came Home.

Show Notes.

Interesting video essay on why William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist III aka Legion is the “greatest psychological thriller ever”.
