SHV - S06E10 - Vampires (1998)

This week on Seeking Human Victims, we continue our "John Carpenter Terror Timeline" season as we look at Escape From LA and it's reception and how 1998's Vampires came out of that just as JC was about to call it quits on filmmaking and gave him a new spark once again as he finally got to make that Western he'd so longed for.  We look at a solid ensemble cast, the polarizing but memorable performance of James Woods, and how this was in many ways John's gnarly, visceral and hyper gory answer to the recent popularity of "Interview With A Vampire." among others.

SHV - S06E08 - In The Mouth Of Madness (1995)

Do you read Sutter Cain? What about Stephen King? HP Lovecraft? This film gives us a little taste of all of the above as we continue the John Carpenter Terror Timeline with 1995's In The Mouth Of Madness starring Sam Neil. We look at yet another example of the horror master just being far too ahead of it's time. We'll deconstruct the casting, the shooting and discuss why we think this is one of the finest HP Lovecraft adaptations ever put to film... even if it isn't even an actual Lovecraft adaptation, but Carpenter's third entry in his own self titled "Apocalypse Trilogy".
