Episode Notes

On this episode of ScreenRun, The Lady Wan and Chris Scalzo are joined by Darren Lundberg of NostalgiaCast to discuss John Carpenter’s follow-up to ‘Halloween’, ‘The Fog’. The ghost/revenge story of a doomed ship full of ill folks desperate to find a place to settle, and the townsfolk that done them wrong. While the film didn’t repeat the runaway success of his prior film, ‘The Fog’ was a hit and to this day carries a warm, wet, sea-faring affection for its fans and has become a cult classic. 40+ years later, how does this deceptively simple ghost story hold up?

SR Ep. 3: Halloween

On this episode of ScreenRun, The Lady Wan and Chris Scalzo are joined by Shawn of the SIVAKO: Road to Avatar podcast to discuss the seminal slasher, John Carpenter’s classic ‘Halloween’.  Carpenter delivers THE genre-defining slasher with the introduction of Michael Myers and the slaughter of some babysitters.  Were there similar films before? Sure.  But Carpenter and crew define the genre and establish the template that would influence filmmakers and horror fans forever. After all this time though, could all that talk just be hyperbole? (Come on, no.  But it’s a hell of a lot of fun to revisit and discuss this horror classic!)

ScreenRun Bonus: The First Run w/The Lady Wan

Hey there ScreenRun fans!  Chris Scalzo here.  So, funny story.  I messed up the editing of this week’s episode, so unfortunately, we’re going to be delayed a week.  To help ease the pain and make sure you get your Lady Wan fix, I’ve uploaded her guest appearance on my other show, The First Run.  Wan joined me to discuss ‘In The Heights’ and ‘The Lady In The Window’.  We also did a Top 5 focusing on films that could be improved by being a musical.  So enjoy this brief apologetic interlude and we’ll see you next week! As always complaints and commendations can be sent to screenrunfun@gmail.com.

Season 2 comes to a close with ‘Creature’ from 1985. The Lady Wan and Chris Scalzo wrap things up by revisiting their rankings, choosing a final best film of the franchise, and deciding who gave the best overall performance.

SR Ep. 10: Creature

Season 2 comes to a close with ‘Creature’ from 1985. Not an ‘Alien’ film for sure, but it certainly borrows a bit from the original classic. But does it deserve a reputation as a “cheap knockoff”? Or is there some magic up there in them hills? Or in this case, them there moons of Jupiter? Then your erstwhile hosts, The Lady Wan and Chris Scalzo wrap things up by revisiting their rankings, choosing a final best film of the franchise, and deciding who gave the best overall performance. There may not be a lot of surprises there, but there’s still a lot of fun!

SR Ep. 9: Alien: Covenant

On this penultimate episode of Season 2 of ScreenRun, The Lady Wan and Chris are joined by David Rosen of the Piecing It Together Podcast to breakdown Ridley Scott’s first direct ‘Alien’ sequel.  Yep, it’s ‘Alien Covenant’, the last film in the franchise (so far). So what happened to Shaw and David? Who are all these new folks? And can Scott recapture the magic of what is considered by many to be a truly classic horror/sci-fi film after all the ambiguity and philosophy of ‘Prometheus’?

SR Ep. 8: Prometheus

This week on ScreenRun Chris is absent, so The Lady Wan is joined by THE Megan Kearns of Spoilerpiece Theatre to discuss ‘Prometheus’.

SR Ep. 8: Prometheus

This week on ScreenRun, Chris is nowhere to be found, likely just cataloging all of his unwatched blu-rays, so The Lady Wan is joined by THE Megan Kearns of Spoilerpiece Theatre to discuss Ridley Scott’s grand (or botched?) return to the Alien franchise with ‘Prometheus’.  Stunning visuals, sketchy dialogue, and a director who doesn’t care what you think.  Is the franchise put back on track? Listen on to find out!
