Episode #152 – Our latest trip into Franken-World – 1998’s Gods And Monsters

Welcome, HYSTOphiles, to Episode #152, our latest step into Franken-world! It’s 1998’s film by Bill Condon, Gods And Monsters

Definitely looks like a god to me…

This fictionalized retelling of the the final days of Frankenstein director James Whale is remarkable in its style and the performances of its actors…

I mean, that HAS to be a god…

The film stars Lynn Redgrave, Brendan Fraser, and Ian McKellen as James Whale…

Ian who?

NATURALLY we also discuss what’s been entertaining us lately, and Keith let’s me me know what we will be watching for Episode #153, which will be our FIRST INTERNATIONAL EPISODE!

We really hope you join our movie watching party, because we really do want to know…

Welcome to Episode #147, HYSTOphiles! We are going back to 1973 for the mystery/thriller The Last Of Sheila, and along for the ride is our good friend and 70’s film aficionado Erin Casteneda!

Me, Erin & Keith

This is such a fun movie because of the mystery aspect, and there are so many clues…everywhere you look. Even the freakin’ title is a clue!

Clues. Everywhere.

Naturally, we also talk about what’s been keeping us enthralled lately, and Keith drops a real surprise choice for our next episode. We hope you join us for our movie party because we really do want to know…

Greetings, HYSTOphiles! Welcome to another episode of movie magic! Today’s delicious treat, 1992’s Stay Tuned, starring John Ritter and Pam Dawber!

And looking pretty good! Damn, Pam!

We compare this to the last “mom and dad” movie we watched recently, and we also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately. And OF COURSE I let Keith know what’s in store for him in Episode #146!

Did I mention that this film is nutty?

Episode #144 shows Shawna sharing and shining a light on SHEENA!

Sheena – 1984

Hello, HYSTOphiles! We “shure” do welcome you to our next episode, #144! This time around our friend Shawna West has recommended a movie that I LOVE…it’s 1984’s Sheena, directed by John Guillermin.

Apparently, Sheena’s make-up artist & hairdresser live in the jungle as well…

Dear friend of the podcast Shawna suggested we make Keith watch this 80’s gem, and I was more than ready! Who doesn’t want to revisit a movie about a female Tarzan?

Honey, that’s not the kind of boa I meant…

As usual we also talk about what’s been entertaining us lately, and Shawna tells us a story about a nickname she once held (Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia!)

We sure hope you join us as we shriek and shout about Sheena with Shawna, because we really do want to know..

Episode #143 tells how Mom And Dad Save The World!

Hey there, HYSTOphiles! You’re just in time to witness the possible end of the world as we know it! Well, it WOULD be the end if it weren’t for the fact that Mom And Dad Save The World!

Really? THEY save the world?

Keith chose this 1992 sci-fi spoof which was directed by Greg Beeman. Mr. Beeman’s movie is pretty trippy…

Let it be known that we don’t recommend eating these…

Mr. Beeman has also had an incredible career in television, but he’s only made two actual feature films: this movie, and License To Drive, which was also one of Keith’s former picks for our show! (see HYSTO? Episode #52)

Besides the film, we also discuss what’s been entertaining us lately, and I get to tell Keith what his assignment is for our next episode! We really hope you join our movie party, because we really do want to know…
