Episode 56: Horror Western Telefilms

Screen Shot 2020-12-13 at 11.03.41 AM

We are back with a brand new episode, and it turned out to be one of those marathon recordings… Just like the olden days, which is a bit kismet since we’re going back to the Old West as we take a look at two surreal and fascinating Horror/Western hybrid TV movies, Black Noon (1971) and Into the Badlands (1991)! We are joined by a very special guest, James Newton, who helps Dan and Amanda dissect Frontier living. (Spoiler: Life was difficult!)

James, a podcaster, filmmaker and writer, is someone worth checking out. Please follow his social media on Twitter at @JamesEdNewton, visit his website and make sure you give his excellent podcast Newton Talks a listen. You can also watch some of James’ amazing films on his YouTube page (might I suggest you start with Grace?). And, you can check out the trailer for Black Lizard Tales, which is currently playing fests, and see his latest short Man/Rabid as well!

We had so much fun talking with him about these haunting little films, and we hope you enjoy listening. Thank you again! We’ll be back very soon with a holiday episode. Joanna Wilson of Christmas TV History is back and ready to play our annual holiday game. We’re also discussing the strange and melancholic Christmas themed Monsters episode Glim Glim. See you soon!
