To celebrate a month of Screan Screams, our friends over at Subject: Cinema, TC Kirkham and Kim Brown, asked us to submit short weekly segments featuring their topic of the week. We’ve gathered four of those segments here, covering giant bugs, sea monsters, Gamera, and body parts run amok. Also featured is a review of The Thing, the prequel to John Carpenter’s sci-fi horror classic. This episode is brought to you by Things in the Dark.
Film: Big Trouble in Little China
Stars: Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun, James Hong, Victor Wong
John Carpenter went a little loopy with this movie, and I love every second of it. Kurt Russell as a truck driver? Check. Ancient Chinese sorcerer? Check. Floating eyeball spy? Check. Inflatable villain? Check. What’s not to like?
