A Part Of Our Scare-itage

19. Prom Night (1980).

Sarah & Adam review one of a couple of Canadian-shot slashers to cash in on Jamie Lee Curtis’s Halloween fame between the production of Halloween and Halloween II. It’s Prom Night, the only disco-dancing, killer-on-the-loose murder mystery to feature Leslie Nielsen! Plus, your two hosts re-live their fondest memories of prom or, rather, how they both avoided it.

16. Scanners (1981).

Sarah and Adam get ready to blow your minds with Scare-itage’s first Cronenberg! Their viewing of Scanners delves into the film’s troubled production, which included a star who couldn’t act, an unfinished script, the need to tone down the horror at one co-star’s request, and—most terrifying of all—drunken phone calls from Patrick McGoohan.

15. Cube (1997).

Adam and Sarah enter their Cubist period to discuss Vincent Natali’s Cube and the director’s proto-Cube short film, Elevated. The films—both feature and short—serve as a launching pad for your hosts to sing the praises of David Hewlett, discuss the rise and fall of C.O.R.E., and eviscerate the ways Cube (and many other films) write mentally handicapped characters. Plus, Sarah reveals how Julian Richings may be in your washroom...right now.
