SHV - S04E08 - Train To Busan (2016)














 Season 4 continues with TRAIN TO BUSAN a 2016 film that showed the world that despite pop culture zombie fatigue, there is plenty of life left in the undead if you tell the right story. We learn about how director Yeon Sang-ho's background in animation prepared him for his first feature, what social commentary he was trying to include, his ultimate goal for the film and much more. While there was some stiff competition, we explain we think this is the finest zombie film of the last decade.

SHV - S04E07 - Bone Tomahawk (2015)




We continue our look at the "best of the decade" here in Season 4, A decade of death. This season continues to bring a wide variety of films as we now look at a "horror-western" in 2015's Bone Tomahawk starring Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Richard Jenkins and many, many more great stars. On this episode we learn about the background of writer/director S. Craig Zahler and how producer Dallas Sonnier put it all on the line in betting on the success of this film. We also use this film as a prime example of how reported box office numbers online are often misleading, especially as the distribution models in Hollywood evolve with technology.
