Cabin in the Woods Film Festival Podcast – Ep 12 – Les Diaboliques

Posted on Mar 1, 2013 by | 4 comments

And we’re back! This time on the Cabin in the Woods Film Festival Podcast Angela (of The Film Confessional Podcast) and I have a few guests over to help us record. Gracing us with their presence is the one and only James Gillham as well as Robert Reineke from the city by the lake, Mill-e-walk-aye.

Following last episodes disastrous French New Wave horror film Inside, I decided that this time we would continue with the theme of French horror films as well as sticking with horror films that might be geared more towards women with the French classic Les Diaboliques.

So, the question now becomes will Angela like a film widely regarded as one of the finest in the genre? Will she stand up to three men who want nothing more than to convince her that this is a good film? Has she actually seen this before? Only this episode can you find the answers to these burning questions and why the phrase “hot juice” is relevant to this discussion. Confused? So are we, but that’s half the fun of the Cabin in the Woods Film Festival Podcast.

Now, stepping outside of the episode for a moment, due to the increase of listeners and the sheer number of downloads that have been occurring I’m trying to find new ways to lower the amount of bandwidth I have been using for the site. Thus, I’m trying out Mixcloud to see how that works. Please feel free to leave feedback on if you like the change or if you’d prefer we go back to the old method.

As always, thanks for listening!

Opening Theme – Help, I’m Alive by Metric
Closing Music – Pictures of Matchstick Men by Status Quo

I review movies. I run a movie theatre. I annoy people. I let my dogs lick my face whenever they want. Sometimes I'm even a halfway decent human.

  1. I totally blew the opportunity to mention that I was on the Director’s Club podcast in November covering Henri-Georges Clouzot and if you wanted to listen to more on Les Diaboliques and Wages of Fear, you should download that episode.

    • Good calls on Robert for the quick recap of Gothic fiction — there’s also Thomas Love Peacock’s Nightmare Abbey (which I confused for Austen’s Northanger Abbey when Robert mentioned it). One correction though, is that it’s Anne Radcliffe, not Rudolph.

      • It was Radcliffe in my mind. And on my notes. Apparently, I need to enunciate better.

      • While doing the Gothic fiction rundown, I probably should have name dropped Charlotte Perkins Gilman and “The Yellow Wallpaper”. I’d expect Angela would like that story.
