Film Podcast – Dare Daniel Mini-Episode 20.5

Welcome to Scare Daniel, a Halloween-themed overlay of the podcast featuring reviews of five maligned horror movies during the entire month of Cork-tober.

First on the chopping block: George Pavlou’s 1986 film Rawhead Rex, a hilariously bad adaptation of a Clive Barker short story that stars David Dukes, Kelly Piper and the most janky-looking monster mask you have ever seen.  You can Schmetflix and schmill with that episode when it comes out on Tuesday.

In the meantime, hosts Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell prepare for Scare Daniel by talking about the horror scenes that scared them the most, while also taking a look back at the structural horrors of last week’s film, the Keanu Reeves non-thriller Exposed.

Elsewhere in this trainwreck of a mini-episode, the hosts talk a lot about Frank Langella, celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day a week late and invite Michael Winslow to eat their lunch.
