We take a break from our usual format to feature a special bonus episode this week, as Arnold chats with Bill Corbett of RiffTrax fame to discuss the upcoming (10/25/17) one-day-only movie theater return of RIFFTRAX LIVE: NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD! Arnold and Bill discuss the classic film, the riffs (including just how funny a rage-filled Harry Cooper can really be), and the larger impact of zombies on pop culture! It’s time for RiffTrax, here on the DOCTOR OF THE DEAD podcast!
Arnold and Natalie contemplate “The Vanishing” on the latest Z NATION. But as most of our team reunites to figure out where the other members of the camp disappeared to, there’s another threat to consider: A little something called “Mad Zs!” Meanwhile, the October zombiethon continues with a pair of movies that share a link or two, 28 DAYS LATER… (2002) and its predecessor, LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE (1974, also known as THE LIVING DEAD AT THE MANCHESTER MORGUE and DON’T OPEN THE WINDOW). Rage against the apocalypse in the latest packed episode of the DOCTOR OF THE DEAD podcast!
Arnold and Natalie “Escape From Zona” along with Warren and Murphy on the latest Z NATION…but do they really want to? And as we all settle into October – the best month of the year – it’s time to revisit some modern zombie movies: ZOMBIELAND (2009) and COOTIES (2014)! Time to nut up or shut up on the latest packed episode of the DOCTOR OF THE DEAD podcast!
A new era begins – consider this “DOCTOR OF THE DEAD 2.0” – and right here on the 49th anniversary of the release of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD! Join Arnold, the Doctor of the Dead himself, along with new co-host and Accidental Hellraiser Scholar, Natalie B. Litofsky, as they briefly look back at the legacy of Father of the Modern Zombie, George A. Romero, and talk about the time-jumping Season 4 premiere of Z NATION, “Warren’s Dream!” Also: Whither Woodard? They’ll explain!
Arnold and Scott return to chat about one of their all-time favorite post-apocalyptic action romps. Pour some genuine 160 proof old Anglo Saxon, dress for dinner, and enjoy the end of the world with Charlton Heston in 1971’s THE OMEGA MAN! One of three adaptations of Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel I AM LEGEND, Chuck’s film falls between Vincent Price vehicle THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (for which the guys recorded a FREE feature-length audio commentary), and Will Smith’s 2007 I AM LEGEND. This in-depth discussion wouldn’t be complete without fellow Omega Man Scott Collura of IGN.com (who also joined the guys for a G2V Podcast on the PLANET OF THE APES franchise). And remember…there is no phone ringing, dammit!
