In this episode, we invited former co-host Edgar Chaput to discuss two of our favourite genre offerings of 2015. First, we discussed Jon Watts’ throwback thriller Cop Car — about a couple of 10-year-olds who stumble upon an abandoned police cruiser and take it for a joyride. After which we reviewed We Are Still Here, a suspenseful and well-crafted old-fashioned ghost story from writer/director Ted Geoghegan. All this and more!
Launched in 2007, Sordid Cinema is one of the longest-running film podcasts. Following a long absence (let’s call it an extended break), Ricky D is back on the Sordid Cinema beat, accompanied by his new co-host, Patrick Murphy. The Sordid Cinema Podcast makes its return, with a new format that sees hosts Ricky D and Patrick Murphy discussing some of our favorite genre films over the years that may have flown under the radar for some audiences. This new version of the long-running show will focus more on discussion and less, on reviews, as we hope to examine the selections from a multitude of angles and break down what makes these films so special. Brought to you by the former editors of Sound on Sight, Sordid Cinema is Goomba Stomp’s Film and TV section and a leading source of movie reviews, and discussion from the world of international, independent, cult and genre cinema. We cover film festivals around the world including Cannes, TIFF, Fantasia, NYFF, Tribeca, Fantastic Fest, SXSW, FNC, Venice, Berlin, and more.
