High and Low (Brow) – Episode 8 – Killer Kids

Posted on Dec 6, 2009 by | 7 comments

highlowbrow-podcast-logo-copyAnd we’re back! It’s been a few weeks since last James and I met to discuss movies, and after we raced through our last episode of High and Low (Brow) we decided to have a bit more leisurely pace during this one. This episode we our theme is Killer Kids, as we focus on two films that have sadistic, murderous children in them. Those films being The Offspring (also known as From a Whisper to a Scream), starring Vincent Price and the far better known David Cronenberg film The Brood, starring mutant babies and the women who produce them.

But besides spending far too much time discussing sociopathic children, we take some time out of the show to discuss The Road, a film we had both seen earlier yet had not had time to discuss. And of course we round out the episode with our selection show, for the second episode in a row we change things up as this time I’m the one who knows nothing about the theme for next show as James lays out his cunning plan as he wrestles control of the show away from me. Will we end up with good movies for next time? Will I ever let James have any say ever again? Does James secretly curse at me when the tape isn’t recording? Tune in to find out.

If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for the podcast, or want to suggest a potential theme for us to use, feel free to email us and tell us your ideas. If you enjoy the show make sure to subscribe through iTunes or our RSS feed so you can catch every new episode. Also, please friend James on Facebook. Because it will frighten and confuse him.

One more thing, if you enjoy the show feel free to donate to it through PayPal in either a single installment or as a recurring donor. We’d love to upgrade some of our equipment and anything you donate will go directly towards us getting some decent mics and perhaps even pop screens that aren’t made out of cotton balls.

As always, thanks for listening!

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. Nice podcast guys. But, yeah, I don’t give a darn about parking in Minneapolis.

  2. Thanks for listening, Robert. And thank you for siding with me regarding the parking issue. Although I was forced to use adult language, the point just had to be made.

  3. Forced? I didn’t see a gun to your head. People need to know who you really are behind closed doors. An inveterate, foul-mouthed naughty boy. Plus that’s my favorite bit in the whole show.

  4. As a listener in Australia, I also do not care about the parking, but I had a good laugh listening to you two banging heads about it.

  5. I’ll give you Robert, James but Dave is totally on my side.

  6. Now that our first official blizzard of the ’09/’10 winter season has arrived, we should get together to record a podcast where we attempt to explain the byzantine set of rules the city of Minneapolis employs to clear the streets of cars in order to send the snow plow through.

  7. I’m pretty sure we’d disagree on those rules as well.

Would you like to say more?
