Thoughts on Films – Episode 38: Hello, Win! (part 1)

tof-icon1OK, so the moon is no longer red, werewolves are no longer howlin’ and the vamps and ghouls already went back to their crypts, but if anything…that’s the perfect time to talk about their films! Feeling much safer, in part 1 Fikri and Muz takes a big bite of the horror genre. Of course, they can’t cover every single thing, but they do talk about its earliest years on the silver screen as well as how folk stories, urban legends, cultural and social panics are/were played and incorporated into films by the Western world. All these and more in the one and only recorded podcast in Bahasa Malaysia that talks about ghosts and ghouls but without the campfire and marshmallow (because we’re sure there’s a fatwa or something against that)!

Lampu Limpah

  • Why you should never wonder what your doctor has in his cabinet
  • Ever wondered what the hell the Hammer Films are all about? Have a read on that here
  • The big boss that is Grand Moff Tarkin was previously a vampire slayer known as Van Helsing. No, not this guy
  • Also, before Count Dooku joined the Separatists, he was dodging wooden stakes and called himself Count Dracula. No, not this guy either (Hollywood really need some new ideas…)
  • Don’t know what to do during long year-end break? Kill time by watching others get killed in these B-horror movies
  • According to Muz, this might be one of the most beautiful horror film ever made. Of the Dario Argento films he has seen, Fikri prefers ‘Opera’
  • Why religion is a common horror film theme
  • What’s up with the slasher sub-genre? Check it out here
  • By the way, look what we found on the found footage sub-genre!
