The Boy In The Striped Pajamas – 2008

Hello Hystophiles! We’re back with Episode #64, and you’d warm up your tear ducts for this one because this time around we’re discussing the film The Boy In The Striped Pajamas, the 2008 directed by Mark Herman.

Can you tell which side is the concentration camp? Need a hint? “Pajamas”

It’s the story of boy whose family moves because his father has been reassigned by the miltary…to place called Auschwitz. (Actually they never call it that in the film, but it’s heavily implied…)

Yeah, this can’t end well…

Honestly, it’s a tough watch…but is it worth it? Listen in to find out! We also talk about what we’ve been doing and watching lately, and we announce what’s next for our Valentine Episode!

Oh, and by the way: Have You Seen This One?

#63 – The Bird With The Crystal Plumage – Argento’s First Film!

Posted on

Hello HYSTOphiles! We’re back, and I’m so excited to be back in giallo territory! Our film this time around is Dario Argento’s very first, The Bird With The Crystal Plumage

Virtually everyone’s expression when they first hear this title…

It’s the story of an American writer who witnesses an almost-murder one night while walking home. He becomes an amateur sleuth, and we get to go along for the ride. As in most gialli, the murderer is disguised and wears black leather gloves. And, as in all of his films, it is the director’s hands you see on screen in these scenes…

Ladies and gentlemen, Mister Dario Argento…

I couldn’t wait to see what Keith thought of this Italian classic…and I can’t wait for you to find out too! You can count on us talking about what’s been entertaining us lately and what we’re covering next time around. We hope you can join us because we would really like to know…

Have You Seen This One?
