Film’s Discussed: Child’s Play, Child’s Play 2, Child’s Play 3, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky.
To prove that Charlene is a huge fan of Chucky and not just the first person I grabbed to do this podcast because I live with her here’s two photos of her credentials – with the man himself and the other is her as Tiffany last Halloween
My guest is a friend from my days studying film production in Colaiste Dhulaigh, Niall Cassin. Niall works is a banker during the day, don’t hold that against him- he also writes and directs on the side. Niall was always a very animated and funny guy to talk to about films in college so I thought he’d be a great guest and I was right.
Film’s Discussed: Trick R’ Treat (2007), The Fourth Kind and The Fog.
I went to London to watch some of the films on offer at the excellent FrightFest in the Empire Cinema in Leicester Square, while there Becky Craig from episode 9 joined me for a chat about some of the films we had seen at FrightFest.
Have to say while I had mixed feelings about some of the films, FrightFest itself has a fantastic atmosphere with the most respectful, positive and fun audiences I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching a horror film with, they do London proud.
Film’s Discussed: Curse of Chucky, For Elisa, Haunter, Willow Creek, The Dark Tourist, We Are What We Are, Rewind This, American Scream and Wake in Fright
To mark the first year anniversary of the Under Your Bed podcast the guest is me, Bren Murphy (yes I’m being a guest on my own podcast) with guest host Emmet Vincent from episode 1. Emmet is also my co-host on the Horseplay Podcast.
