We continue our Horror-month this week on the podcast, discussing two very different, but perhaps equally lauded horror films. But before we get into that, Ari needs to discuss an important film he watched this week: White House Down.
Mariam’s homework this week was to watch John Carpenter’s The Thing from 1982. This update on the classic (but according to Mariam boring) 50’s horror film pits Kurt Russell and a research team on Antarctica against a super-gross shapeshifting monster.
Meanwhile Ari had to watch Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s 2001 ghost story Pulse, where a group of young people discover ghosts that make their way from the internet to the physical world, with tragic, melancholic and chilling results. Ari had been a big fan of the previous Kiyoshi Kurosawa-homework, Cure, but will he respond as favorably to this, even more beloved, work.
No homework next episode, as we’re instead taking the time to assess the work so far, discussing our experiences with giving and receiving homework. But as always, you can email us, find us on twitter, facebook and in iTunes!
