Sordid Cinema Podcast #502: The Visit and the career of Wes Craven



The Visit review

M. Knight Shyamalan’s The Visit Review

Following his breakthrough with The Sixth Sense, his crowd-pleasing follow-up, Unbreakable, and the underrated Signs, M. Knight Shyamalan’s career has been in a seemingly bottomless free fall. In the wake of two big-budget, effects-driven flops (The Last Airbender, Another Earth) The Visit marks something of a return to form for Shyamalan, and this week we will be discussing the film at length. After which we take some time to reflect on one of our favourite filmmakers, Wes Craven. We’ll fill you in on our favourite movies and our favourite scenes directed by the master of horror. Joining us this week is special guest Matt Donato from We Got This Covered.

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.
