Sound On Sight Radio #170: New Moon

- Advertisement -


Like many classic horror archetypes, the werewolf can represent a wide variety of themes, from uncontrollable lust, to humanity’s bestial nature, to how First Nations men are apparently savage wife beaters too primitive to wear clothes. Guess which one applies to New Moon, the latest film adaptation of Stephenie Meyers’ Twilight series. Tonight, Sound on Sight takes a look at the blockbuster tween epic. And, if we don’t fall asleep, we’ll also take a look at two classic werewolf films from 1981: An American Werewolf in London and The Howling.

    My favourite werewolf transformation scene is from 1984’s “In the Company of Wolves”. It’s from the AWiL school of painful transformation, with morphing anatomy and shifting muscles. Short clip of it here:

    What’s the title of that Cat Power song, and also, the name of the song you play @ the end of the show? Sorry for the inane, non-sequitor question.

    1. Ricky says

      The Cat Power song is called Werewolf – The song at the end of the show is By Grizzly Bear off the New Moon soundtrack. Check out the Playlist column by Sandra on our site for more info.

    I think this was the funniest episode in a while! I love the Twilight bashing, not enough bad things can be said about the franchise. (PS. Thanks for getting me very interested in An American Werewolf in London.)

    Don’t agree with all your comments but at times insightful and funny (like usual). Great hour.

    P.S- “Face Punch!” was indeed hilarious.
