Yeah, yeah, we know, we get it, we understand,
Hitchcock/PSYCHO, Hitchcock= PSYCHO, Hitchcock is PSYCHO, even more than Tony Perkins’ Norman Bates.
Fuck Hitchcock. Forget Hitchcock. It’s old, he’s old, you’re a poseur to talk Hitchcock, Hitchock this, Hitchcock that. Dude, whatever.
I’m more impressed if you champion the lesser-known, the hardly-known-at-all things: Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues, Vietnamese iced coffee over anything at Starbucks, xerox printed fanzines from the late 1980s / early ’90s over digital musings of the faceless internet, Spider-Man as drawn by artist Ross Andru throughout the 1970s over Spider-Man as drawn by artist Steve Ditko in the 1960s, PSYCHO II over PSYCHO.
I can count on the fingers of one hand how many times I have watched the original PSYCHO but PSYCHO II, on the other hand, is, like, well, double digits. Lots of double digits. #polydactylism
This is one of the greatest sequels ever made, its ROAD WARRIOR great, 1978’s DAWN OF THE DEAD great (I hate how I actually have to qualify which one I mean because of the abominable remakes/reboots/reruns that are a daily part of our lives nowadays, already deadened by rampant shootings and Donald-Trump-for-president-for-real), STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN ferchrissakes.
This week, VHS Rewind hosts Chris and Mark will have you doubting your sanity with their black-is-white, white-is-black, through-the-looking-glass, PSYCHO II-over-the-original-PSYCHO babble.
VHS Rewind is preparing to tackle the legendary THE FANTASTIC FOUR movie from 1994 (you know, the one without Jessica Alba; the one produced by Roger Corman; the one that hasn’t been officially released).
THE FANTASTIC FOUR was subject to much behind the scenes shenanigans and has an extremely interesting production story (perhaps more interesting than the film itself).
This is all examined in the upcoming documentary DOOMED! THE UNTOLD STORY OF ROGER CORMAN’S THE FANTASTIC FOUR.
VHS Rewind sat down with the documentary’s director Marty Langford to discuss THE FANTASTIC FOUR and this passion project documentary.
We hope our discussion sparks your interest in this upcoming documentary as well as in our upcoming review of Corman’s THE FANTASTIC FOUR.
Frankly, some of us here at VHS Rewind enjoy Corman’s film much more than the one with Jessica Alba in it.
