My Summer Lair Chapter #135: What Happens When Dead Dicks Meets Majic?
Switching up the standard program with this episode which gives you 2 interviews.
I am on location at the Blood in the Snow film festival media day at Super Wonder Gallery! Unfolding over 6 nights Blood in the Snow is a showcase of contemporary Canadian horror, genre, and underground cinema and always worth the price of admission!
First up is an interview with the filmmakers behind Dead Dicks: the Montreal based and married duo Chris Bavota and Lee Paula Springer. As the witty, though darkly humorous title implies Dead Dicks is a movie with a splash of horror but like modern horror mixed in with a classic family drama addressing topics of dependency, identity, and mental illness.
This is a cool weird movie…I’m still not sure what I’ve seen.
The second movie interview is Majic. And this is my jam! If you’re into alternative and speculative stories i.e. the current Man in the High Castle where the Allies lost WWII and the Nazis won…it’s incredible and currently on Amazon Prime then you’ll dig Majic.
“An anti-conspiracy video blogger thinks she is slipping into an alternate reality after being approached by an old man claiming to have worked for the legendary Majestic-12 (aka majic), the covert US spy agency, created after the UFO incident at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.”
Yo…I know!! For Majic I talk to lead actress Paula Brancati who you might have seen in Slasher or Being Erica and Erin Berry the director. They both did such an outstanding job with this movie. The ending is TIGHT!!
And that was my media day adventures at Blood in the Snow for 2019. Thanks to Jen, Kelly, Kirk and Carolyn for always being so warm and welcoming and putting on this freshtastic festival.
Sorry to you if the listener if the sound wasn’t as crisp: the hazards of being out of the Girth Radio HQ and on the road. I will do and be better next time.
