About This Show
A podcast that is practically all about MOVIES! Cinema, films, celluloid, digital, whatever you want to call it. Jack and Andrew are the hosts, and we talk about new movies, classics, cult work, things we've seen and have never seen, special segments about directors and styles and trends, and 'Required Reading' which is about movie books. And the "Local Vocal" series gives you in-depth interviews with NYC/NJ based filmmakers, actors, artists and musicians.

Episode 81: HORROR in April 3D pt 1 - THE VOID
Jack and Andrew of the Wages of Cinema welcome you all back to the third annual installment of HORROR in APRIL. Why April? Because we love horror movies and it's another half a year until October, so we're going to soak up the genre, dangnabbit! We have a different approach this year, however, as we will present the first segment as a NEW horror movie that is out now in select theaters and VoD (YouTube, iTunes, etc), and then we'll come back later this month with more reviews.
First up... what do you get when two filmmakers worship at the altars of John Carpenter (The Thing), George Romero (the "Dead" series), Lucio Fulci (The Beyond), Clive Barker (Hellraiser), and HP Lovecraft (uh... pick any given story that's about the f***ed up and bizarre and occult), and you may get something like THE VOID, a sort of horror smoothie if you will of disgusting special effects and bizarre imagery. Does it work? You'll have to listen to us to find out...

The hosts of the Wages of Cinema have a great rapport with one another, and this comes through as they talk about new and classic movies. There's witty banter, serious analysis, and personal discussions on which films have meant the most to them - all while talking about the new movies they've seen in the past week (the two-minute movie mile has a wide variety, so if one movie doesn't grab you the next might), the 'List' segments (more in-depth stuff there), and then they have a main subject. My favorite part is their 'Required Reading', which they don't do all the time but is usually a solid bet for recommendations of quality movie books.
They're not Siskel & Ebert, but then who is?
