High & Low (Brow) – Hauntings
And we’re back!
Yes, it is the return of the long gestating podcast you’re prone to forget about, High and Low (Brow). Did you miss us? That’s good, because we missed you too. I’d tell you what we’ve been up to but it’s been quite a while since James and I last recorded so it just seems easier to ignore the past twelve months and jump right back into the swing of things with this episode’s theme, Hauntings.
As you may remember, each of our episodes is dedicated to reviewing two films that fall under the same theme. As stated, this episode’s theme is Hauntings, and we watched two films that deal with haunted houses, murders, and even some good old fashioned romance that would make Tobin’s Spirit Guide shudder with anticipation.
First up is the Italian horror film Castle of Blood, starring Georges Riviere, Margrete Robsahm, and Jame’s romantic ideal, Barbara Steele. It’s also directed by friend of the show, Antonio Margheriti, last seen directing Yor, the Hunter from the Future. Following that we visit the 1988 romantic comedy High Spirits. Directed by Neil Jordan and starring Peter O’Toole, Steve Guttenberg and 84% of the working actors in Hollywood. Will we like either of them? Will James discuss his affinity for Barbara Steele? And just what does Edgar Allen Poe have to do with any of this? You’ll just have to listen to find out.
