Sound On Sight Radio #113 – Bloody Radical part 6

If you like maimings, this is the hour for you. We’re catching up on recent genre films to hit DVD, and this is a particularly nasty batch. Sure, there’s the relatively tame pleasures of Lucky McKee’s revenge thriller Red. But then there’s the twin evolutionary nightmare of Toby Wilkins’ Splinter – which stars a ruthless parasitic entity – and Mitchell Lichtenstein’s Teeth, a vagina-dentate horror-satire that might upset some squeamish male viewers with its ruthless disregard for penises. Most of all, though, there’s Belgian filmmaker Koen Mortier’s relentlessly depraved Ex-Drummer, a movie with far too many moral trespasses for one blurb to contain. Somewhere in there, we might even find time to tell you if the movies are any good or not.

    Advantageously, the post is really the greatest on this precious subject. I agree along with your conclusions and tend to eagerly anticipate all your coming updates. Simply stating thanks is not going to just be sufficient, for the extraordinary lucidity within your writing. I will right away get your feed to be privy of any updates. Excellent work and much success in your business efforts!

    Hey guys, thanks for taking the time to watch and review our movie “Splinter” in your podcast, I really appreciate your frank and honest discussion of the film, and your insight.

    It’s rare and refreshing to hear a film review podcast from people who really know what they are talking about, and you guys obviously do. You may just have found yourselves another regular listener.

    Keep up the great work. See you on Twitter.

      Thanks Toby but I really have no clue what I am talking about. My mouth just opens and shit pours out. Normally I watch great movies like The Room. You should check it out. It’s Awesome. Here’s a clip.

    Wow, I’m surprised nobody commented on this episode! I liked Splinter. I actually found a couple parts to be a bit creepy to be honest, but for the most part it was just a fun little film. That film Teeth sort of reminded me of another film called a long time ago called But I’m a Cheerleader. I’m not sure why. As for Ex Drummer, I thought it was funny as hell and I really loved it but I agree that the part at the end of the backward intro beginning where the woman gets her face smashed open with a brick was too much. I haven’t seen Red yet, but I loved May. I’ve heard mixed things about Red, but I’ll check it out anyway. Good show!

      I think I was a little too hard on Red. I actually enjoyed the film, but I was very irritated by the emotional tenor of the premise. Brian Cox is really good, and the script is reasonably well done, though there’s too much folksy Sarah-Palin charm for me.

        Al I should get you a dog for Christmas.

          If I shoot it, will you kill my children? How does it work again?

      Hey Tristan. I must have not noticed your comment before. Honestly I love all the movies reviewed on this show. Sometimes I don’t want to say anything negative towards any film but than I remember what a friend of mine once said. Anyone can say nice things about a film but it is always trickier to discuss it openly and honestly and not be afraid to mention something that you may have disliked. Teeth had a big push, a bigger budget and had some major backing at Sundance but Splinter really showed more promise for a future horror film director. Also I don’t know why Al was so hard on Red. I love Lucky McKee and it’s too bad he did not have a chance to finish the film. Check out his earlier film May if you ever have a chance.
