High and Low (Brow) – Series 3 Episode 5 – Horrors

Posted on Mar 28, 2012 by | 7 comments

And we’re back! James and I have finally had some free time to sit down and record and you’re in luck, this episode is a doozy and perhaps our best ever. From the cold open to the stinger I think this is one of our best and most entertaining, and most embarrassing, episodes of High and Low (Brow) yet.

As we left off, this episode is one James came up with as we try and see how horror can be internalized or externalized in movies. To do this we select a pretty interesting duo of films, first up being the only horror film legendary director Ingmar Bergman ever made, that being Hour of the Wolf. Countering that cinematic oddity, we have the underseen and underknown Mill of the Stone Women, a horror film from the dawn of the 60’s that just might be an undiscovered gem. Of course, be sure to stick around for the latest entry of James Gillham: Pop Culture Guru.

If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for the podcast, or want to suggest a potential theme for us to use, or simply want to tell James how awesome he is, 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. And while you’re there be sure to join our relatively new Facebook group devoted to Where the Long Tail Ends.

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!

Opening Theme – Adonai by Ennio Morricone
Closing Music – My Girl’s Pussy by Harry Roy and His Orchestra

  1. You realize Matt that you really need to write reviews of that 21 part series you’ve been watching. You’ve been holding out!

  2. I fuckin’ Love HOUR OF THE WOLF. I’m going to be listing to this episode. BIGTIME.

    • I listened to the shit out of it! And that James fellow is quite the cat’s pajamas!

  3. @ Kurt – I hope we don’t disappoint. I won’t spoil anything, but I hope you think we do the film justice with our brisk appraisal.

    @ Nat – I think you’re the cat’s pee-jays for submitting a theme. It was an inspired idea! I’m looking forward to checking out both of the films.

  4. Another excellent episode. My only suggestion is for you two to get off your asses and record and release episodes more frequently – this stuff is too good to be this infrequent.

    • Thanks for the kind words, Kasper. 🙂 Hopefully we’ll be a bit quicker with the next episode.

    • I’d like to do these more frequentlyI know James and I always aim for one a month but its been consistently tough to pull off. What can I say? James is a busy guy and has his hands in a lot of pies. Its tough to get his attention!
