22: It’s Cool to Like Apes Again! – with Scott Collura

Do we really have to say it? You want us to say it, don’t you. OK…

The G2V Guys go APE this time around as they’re joined by Scott Collura of IGN.com and the Transporter Room 3 podcast! From the publication of Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel LA PLANETE DES SINGES (MONKEY PLANET) to five feature films, animated and live-action TV series, comics, toys, two reboots, and now the latest chapter in a new incarnation on its way this summer, the PLANET OF THE APES universe has never been more popular. G2V has a search through the Sacred Scrolls, bewares the Beast Man, and trudges through a desert of diverse observations to get to the most shattering secret of all (yes, more shocking than the Statue of Liberty!) – what makes us all fans of those damn, dirty APES?

Now also on YouTube!

The Creepy Hybrid Human-Ape Child Never Used in BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES

Revenge From Planet Ape! (this bizarre voiceover was appended by distributors to a cut US release of 1971’s TOMBS OF THE BLIND DEAD to try to convince moviegoers that the Spanish horror film was somehow connected to the APES franchise due to the tenuous visual design link between the Apes and the mummified Templar zombies in the film – trust us, the whole thing is nuts!)

ALL of the once rare 1981 Galen (Roddy McDowall) bumpers for the TV-movie repackagings of the 1974 television series (Note: Arnold refers to these in the episodes as being used for the original films, but that was incorrect, sorry!):

14: Zombiemania!

In our final Halloween-themed installment for 2013, The G2V Podcast welcomes a special guest – an internationally recognized zombie expert that co-authored ZOMBIEMANIA: 80 MOVIES TO DIE FOR (with a revised edition titled ZOMBIEMANIA RISES: 100 MOVIES TO DIE FOR on the way, cataloguing about 1,000 films!), teaches a course at the University of Baltimore called “Zombies in Popular Media,” contributed to volumes like TRIUMPH OF THE WALKING DEAD, BRAAAIIINNNSSS!: FROM ACADEMICS TO ZOMBIES, and THE UNDEAD AND THEOLOGY, and lectures on “Zombies: Monsters with Meaning” at symposia, conventions, and festivals. Who is it? None other than G2V co-host Arnold T. Blumberg!

Scott and Arnold look back at the history of zombies in pop culture, where they started, where they shambled (and occasionally ran) in the years that followed until they infected every medium and genre, and what this whole undying zombie craze might actually mean.

Monsters_of_Legend_coverWe also have a special contest this episode! Midnight Syndicate has graciously provided us with a copy of their phenomenal new album that pays tribute to the Universal and Hammer legacy, Monsters of Legend! We’re giving a copy away to the listener who can answer the following trivia question (also presented in the episode). E-mail, post on our Facebook page or in the comments below, send your answer through the post-apocalyptic wilderness, and if you get it right, the CD will be yours!

This movie was the first to introduce the idea that zombies specifically want to eat brains:
A) Night of the Living Dead
B) Dawn of the Dead
C) Nightmare City
D) The Return of the Living Dead
E) Re-Animator

Good luck!
